I assume your ASrock uses an AMI bios, if thats the case here are the beep codes..

1 short Memory refresh timer error.
2 short Parity error.
3 short Main memory read / write test error.
4 short System timer failure
5 short Process error.
6 short Keyboard controller BAT test error.
7 short General exception error
8 short Display memory error.
9 short ROM BIOS checksum error
10 short CMOS shutdown Read/Write error
11 short Cache Memory bad

Can you confirm the mobo is it K7VM2 ?  Are you sure that memory is compatible? If it is K7VM2 the manual states it takes PC2100 or PC1600 only therefore this could explain it.
