Compaq Evo D510C has 3 beeps no startup

When I push startup button I get pause and then 3 beeps (1 short, 2 long) but unit never starts. What does this indicate? I'm thinking video card (built in) or battery. I have added a new video card with same result.

1 short & 2 long would indicate a memory error & the keyboard num lock led should also be flashing. Try reseating memory modules.

Video problem would be indicated by 1 long, 2 short & the caps lock led should be flashing....

Reseating memory does help. Does that mean I need to replace memory?
