if you just get the one beep,it is posting correctly
when you reset the cmos by the jumpers,it sets it to default settings.
then when you turn it on go into the bios and set it up.
if you are getting a series of beeps then they are pinpointing the problem.
you can check them here
www.bioscentral.com
when you have fitted the cpu you may have dislodged something without realising it
check all cable connection
check all the fans are turning
reseat the video and ram

Okay It beeps 3 times;according to the website" A memory failure has occurred in the first 64K of RAM. The RAM IC is probably bad"
what does this mean and is there a way to fix?

First make sure the RAM is seated properly in the slot. Pull it out and then reseated the RAM, this will make sure it is seated correctly and there is good contact.
