PC Beeps sometimes

  1. Hi, I am currently building a Gaming PC. I dont have an OS System on it yet but I do have the PC built. When I turn it on sometimes it will boot to the BIOS fine but sometimes it will do 1 Long beep and 3 Short Beeps and I know that is is a memory problem but what I cannot work out is why it works sometimes and other times it doesnt.
    Can anyone please help with this problem?

    My system specs are:
    P5K Premium Motherboard
    Reaper DDR2 1066 RAM
    Intel Quad Core Q6600 CPU
    Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB Hard Drive
    BFG NVIDIA GTX 280 Graphics Card
    Cooler Master 1000W Power Supply

    Dont worry Iv fixed the problem. It was a fault in my VGA cable. One of the pins were damaged. I put a new cable on and everything is fine
