Hello,

I am the person that will be helping you today.

When it beeps like that, it means that the wrong memory was installed or there was a problem with the memory.

May I ask for the full brand and model name of the Lenovo computer? Also, which type of memory did you put in the computer?

I will be standing by.

Thank you,
Jason

If you remove the stick of ram that was already there before the purchase and only leave the new sticks, what are the results?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It's ddr3 a 2 gb stick,cause it said it supports 2 gb sticks only. Up to 8 gb total. And it's pc3-8500 1066mhz
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Hmm not sure let me install all three real quick and take the original out and try
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Ok I tried. Still beeps. And the old ram says the same as the new pc3 8500 all that
Computer technician: Jason Jones, Computer Technician replied 2 years ago

If you put in only the original and leave out the new RAM, does it still work? As of right now, I would suggest returning the memory sticks as they seem to be faulting. What you can do is test one stick at a time and see of they work. If they don't, then you have your answer; they are faulty.

Here is a link to memory that is guaranteed to work with your system: http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/thinkcentre-m58-%28type-6258%2C-6303%2C-7174%2C-7354%2C-7360%2C-7627%2C-7638%2C-8910%29/CT5509223

the old stick works fine. . And ok so it's 100 percent sure there faulty and not maybe different at all by maybe one spec or something
Computer technician: Jason Jones, Computer Technician replied 2 years ago

As long as it is PC3-8500 Unbuffered memory, it 'should' work. Simply put, if you put them in and they don't work, it is faulty.

Lol..and I'm shocked because newegg is usually really good
Computer technician: Jason Jones, Computer Technician replied 2 years ago

I agree. NewEgg is normally very good. However, when I purchase RAM, I always choose to purchase from Crucial as they are the best in my eyes.
