Yes, It should.

That one is just a faster bus. That is all.

With RAM it is typically a good idea to verify that the system you are using is compatible with the memory you purchase to install.  Typically it should not be a problem, however, there are motherboards that are NOT compatible with specific RAM configurations.

Can you tell us either which motherboard, or what the make and model of your system are?

Here is Lenovo's stated compatible memory for your system.

Also, specifically if you are looking to use the PNY memory, Newegg is out of stock, here is a link directly to the manufacturer for that memory.

8 beeps specifically indicates that you need to replace your system board...

Hi,

That model supports the following Data bus speed 1066.0 MHz.  Considering your PC's Bus is 1066, anything higher is a waste if you can get PC-8500.

Now, it's common to use a processor and memory with different FSB ratings depending on the cost of the components. Fast memory given the pin and type is the same will work just fine.

did you buy 1 stick or two.. Sometimes theyare paired.

RAM
Installed Size 2.0 GB / 8.0 GB (max) .
Technology DDR3 SDRAM - Non-ECC .
Memory Speed 1066.0 MHz .
Memory Specification Compliance PC3-8500 .
Form Factor DIMM 240-pin .
Features Dual channel memory architecture .
Configuration Features 1 x 2 GB

3 beeps, 4 times.

according to the code, it is
Reseat the memory modules. If the error persists, replace
the memory modules one at a time until the failing module
is determined.

does it mean I need a new ram?

bclongacreCommented:
it may, or it may mean that the RAM that you have does not meet the spec required by your motherboard.

Here is a link to the tool that andymacf referred to (with your product selected)

http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=ThinkCentre%20M58%20%28Type%206239%2C%207244%2C%207355%2C%207373%2C%207628%2C%207639%20and%209960%29&Cat=RAM

It appears, as per Crucial and Lenovo, that the specific part number that you selected is NOT listed as supported or recommended, unfortunately.   However, there are options available.

http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=7F95C316A5CA7304 specifically is comparable to the link you just posted above.
