    Take the ram out and put it back in, being sure you get it seated well.

    The best thing to do is to determine what motherboard you have and the BIOS that it is running. Then search google for whatever brand BIOS it is and BEEP CODES. That should tell you where the error is comming from. I would guess its either poorly seated or bad ram, or same with CPU.

    To be safe, I'd take everything out and make sure it is clean and hooked back up properly. Especially if your sister was messing around with it, and some of the pins might have gotten bent or something. If you have more than one stick of ram I'd take out all but one stick and try booting that way.

    BTW
