Hi:

 

I would remove all of the original memory chips and test each one in the primary memory slot (the one closest to the processor) one at a time.

 

If the PC continues to beep, then the motherboard is shot.

 

See the troubleshooting steps for that code at the link below, Appendix A, page 58.
