Impatient bugger!!

Make sure the memory is in correctly, that usually causes these kinds of problems (memory sticks out, so it gets knocked around a bit). Also make sure the processor is securely seated.

If you know the make and model of the motherboard you can always look that up and see if there is an error-code section (which tells you what the beep or beeps mean), and if there is a BIOS reset jumper. I had a similar problem years ago and it was fixed by putting a jumper (a little plastic sleeve) over two jumpers for 15 seconds, which resets the BIOS completely.
