Studio 540, 2 short beeps on start up?

I tried to start my Dell Studio 540, it won't boot up, there is a green light on, all I get are 2 short beeps a pause then 2 short beeps continuously. Any ideas? Black Screen.

RE: Studio 540, 2 short beeps on start up?

2 beeps = No memory modules detected

If you have two or more memory modules installed, remove the modules, reinstall one module at a time, and then restart the computer. If the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module. Continue until you have identified a faulty module or reinstalled all modules without error.

Read through the Service Manual first to learn how to open the cover, remove/replace memory modules.
