1 beep = no RAM installed
2 beeps = incompatible RAM types
3 beeps = no good banks
4 beeps = no good boot images in the boot ROM (and/or bad sys config block)
5 beeps = processor is not usable
In addition to the beeps, on some computers the power LED will flash a corresponding number of times plus one. The LED will repeat the sequence after approximately a 5-second pause. The tones are only played once.
Note: In this case, a flash is considered to be 1/4 second or 250 ms or greater in length.
Is this a G5 iMac, or G5 PowerMac, the pm needs pairs of RAM to work.
If you're sure the RAM is good, try the Hair Dryer trick...
It can show on any G5, and even many other computers & electronic devices of the period.
