Jadon,

   Remove the ram and see if you computer still does that.  If so, then you might have bought the wrong type of ram or it is a bad chip.

this could be incompatibility with your MB and Ram ... also check that you have not damaged the ram slot or upset other cards eg Video Card etc...
this can even be caused by mixing EDO with FP modules...

# of beeps and errors they represent:

               1 long----------------RAM refresh
               1 long, 1 short-------defective motherboard
               1 long, 2 short-------video card error or dip switch (XT)
               1 long, 3 short-------error on ega card
               2 long, 1 short-------synchronization of monitor adapter
               2 short---------------parity error (incorrect memory checksum)
               3 short---------------errors in the first 64K of RAM
               4 short---------------timer or counter deffective
               5 short---------------processor failure or video RAM
               6 short---------------Error in keyboard processor
               7 short---------------virtual processor mode set (AT)
               8 short---------------incorrect writing to video RAM
               9 short---------------wrong ROM BIOS checksum

does "cdrom registers" mean that the light turns on on it or the drivers load?
