hp desktop beep code help needed

HP Recommended
Slimline 260-a180na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

hi. this pc is a week over its years warranty. won't boot - get three long beeps, two short beeps. have tried all the usual fixes - reseated everything, done power cycle, reset cmos. have tried to find info on motherboard on-line but it is scarce. am assuming beep sequence could be memory related, have ordered some more and am waiting to fit. am desperate - any other ideas?? thanks
