Building a new computer and it is not booting up. Continual 3 BIOS beeps. What should I do?

I've just built a new computer, but it's not booting. When I press the power button, the BIOS continually beeps in 3's I checked the Intel site and said that's a memory error, so I bought some new memory, but it's giving me the same thing. Anyone know what this means or what I should do?

Your question is lacking the memory part numbers, but your motherboard only supports DDR3 memory less than 1.6V and the two you listed could be 1.7V and 1.65V. Quote from the product website: "Using a DIMM with a voltage rating higher than 1.6 V may damage the processor." Are you sure you got the right memory for your motherboard?

"It all depends on the Motherboard Manufacturer, but I'd bet its one of the following:

CPU (Bad CPU? Bent Pins? Inserted properly?)
Memory (Bad Memory? Wrong Type? Inserted Properly?)
Video Card (Bad Video Card? Inserted Properly?)

Remove all three of the following and add them one at a time.

Check if you have the correct type of memory..

Good Luck!"
