The meaning of beep codes varies by BIOS manufacturer - but check here www.computerhope.com/beep.htm

Could be ram or video card not quite seated properly. I'd start by reseating them (take them out, make sure there's no dust in the socket, plug them back in and make sure they're all the way down with any clips firmly clipped shut)

Could also be bad caps giving you unclean power. Seebadcaps.net
