Welcome to the forum.

 

Here is the Illustrated Parts and Service Map for the computer.  On Page 3, in the POST audible codes, it shows that 1 short and 1 long beep followed by a 3 second pause, is a bad memory or memory configuration error.  It may simply be a conicidence that it happened when you installed a new processor if you didn't touch the memory.

Thank you for the additional information.

 

I would try all of the memory in different configurations.  It may be that some of it has failed.

You mean in different slots? It didn't work. I have a Kingston ram, Hynix and Samsung(these 2 don't work togheter). Only kingston and hynix work togheter. Both Hynix and Samsung say hp on the back.

I wish that I could explain why the two brands are not playing nice together.  Since I have seen some extremely strange things happen with Win 10, I will blame the problem on it.   I might not be kidding, however.  I once had a DFI LanParty motherboard.  It had 4 memory slots, but I could never get it to work with more than two slots (3 and 4).  I had help from many experts and tried many things, but no luck.  It had 200+ settings in the BIOS with many for the memory.

 

Here is the memory that is recommended by Crucial Memory.  It might make good sense to simply buy 8 GB of their memory.  If their guide recommends the memory it is guaranteed to work.  You can contact their Tech Support for further help with their memory.

You are very welcome, @OhShieet.

 

I would appreciate it if you would let us know how the memory from Crucial worked out.  It will help for the future.
