Do you still get the beep codes after replacing the RAM chips. Please give us more information.

Re: Visualize P-Class 1GHz Windows Based - beep codes

Four long beep generally means memory problems. Check if you have properly seated the RAM sticks? Take both memory sticks out. Put one in Bank 1 at a time. You have to use
some power to force it in fully. It might appear the stick is in when both
latches are on, but it may not be true. This problem is common with Crucial
memory sticks.

As you had mentioned, you have other machines, please try these same RAM modules in those systems and check for any beep codes.
