Hi Th3shad0wstalk3r, and welcome to TSG.

Usually, anything other than a single short beep indicates that the motherboard failed its Power On Self Test (POST). The meaning of a given beep pattern depends on the exact brand and model number of the motherboard or the computer in which it is installed.

Could also be a memory failure. No way to know for sure without knowing what BIOS is running the motherboard.

If that's a factory-brand computer, advise us what brand name and model name and model number it is.
If that's a self-built computer, advise us what brand name and model number its motherboard is.

Also provide a description of that 4 GB module.

You haven't given us much to work with at this point.

That's a DDR2-800(DDR2 PC2-6400) 4 GB module, so it's obvious your desktop computer is several years old.

That appears to be a Dell-branded motherboard, possibly in a Dell Inspiron 546 desktop.

Examine the labels/stickers on the case and look for a 7-character "service tag/serial" number.
Also look for a 11 to 12-character "express service code" number.

Advise us what they are.

No, that's not it.

Is that a Dell brand desktop?
