Unplug the system, remove or disconnect the battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.

Remove and reinstall the memory modules. Service manual link below.

If the beep continues there after, try one module at a  time in each socket until you identify the bad module (meaning it is bad in both sockets) or the bad socket (meaning one socket shows bad with either module).  Then replace the module or the mainboard as appropriate.

4 beeps indicates a RAM failure. Try reseating the RAM and also run a diagnostic check (tap F12 immediately at boot) and watch for errors.
