EDIT: I booted up the pc with no ram in it, and it makes the same beeeep bbb noise. Does this mean one of my memory modules is corrupt, or both?
p.s. is there a trick to getting the ram into the slot, as in the manual it says that it clicks into place, but it is not. (a friend put the ram in for me)
if the memory modules aren't seated properly, no way is your pc going to start, it also beeps when id doesn't detect ANY memory sticks or detects faulty sticks.
there are little gaps on the bottom of the memory sticks, if there is only one gap, make sure to slide it in correctly on the motherboard.
careful not to put it in wrong, you can permenantely bend the slot.
check this out, hope this helps man!

try putting just 1 stick in at a time, and booting up, if that works, then add the 2nd one in and boot up...if you find out it still doesn't boot after all this, you may have gotten faulty memory sticks.
