    It could be the RAM, but 3 long beeps is also a keyboard error, depending on
    the motherboard and BIOS. Does anything at all show on the screen when you
    turn it on?

    Try testing the RAM- put only 2 in at a time and see if it boots. If not,
    take one out and put one of the other new sticks in. Continue until you've
    tested them all this way. If it never boots with any 2 of them, I'd say
    they're either bad or not suited for your board (ECC vs. non-ECC).
    If it does boot with just 2, it looks like your board doesn't support 8GB.
