3 beeps means a bad or lose RAM chip. If you recently dropped the machine you may have knocked it loose.

I agree with Machead3. Here is iFixit's article on replacing MacBook Pro RAM:Article. This is for the early 2011 model, but it should be very similar for any non-retina MacBook Pro. If your Mac is not an early 2011 model, iFixit should have an article for any model.
