You can try removing a RAM stick, swapping them, checking for debris in slot. No way to test if you don't get image on screen for BIOS post, though you can try booting Memtest86+

Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

Hi DrZuhoch,
If your Toshiba Laptop came with AMI BIOS (American Megatrends),two beeps means there has been a parity error in base memory (RAM). This is an issue with the first 64KB block of memory in your RAM. The solution is usually to replace the memory.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I ordered new memory, and installed today.Same problem no difference.The hard drive has power, and is running, but computer will not boot up.
Fans start,disk drive is queried.
Sometimes, if I continuously power down and attempt restart, it will start up.
The last time it powered up, I left it running for 3 days till my memory modules came in.Of course, I had to shut down to install modules,, but it would not boot up again.
While it was up, I looked at system status, and memory and hard drive showed very few hard errors.
What else could be causing this problem?, It seems to be intermittent on boot up, but once up, it runs fine.
Thanks for everyone's help and advice on this problem.

I gave you a whole list of Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7. Have you completed them?

You should also consider getting a baseline perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to a HD wiped with Diskpart Clean Command so you can eliminate software as the culprit. Follow the steps in the tutorial as closely as possible.
