Three Long Beeps/RAM Problem?

I recently switched some EDO RAM in one of my machines and installed it into another old PC.

When booting up the old PC I receive three long beeps. According to research this is likely to be a RAM problem. I have made sure the RAM is firmly inserted into the sockets, tried installing the RAM modules into other sockets (one stick at a time, 2x 8MB sticks) and have put the original RAM that was previously installed and working fine back into the machine and I still get three annoying long beeps.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.
