3 beeps and panic (cpu 1 caller) kernel trap

Hi recently my computer has been freezing and the screen will get pixelated and then shut off and it starts beeping 3 times before a pause. I have heard this is a ram issue so i have taken out the ram and put it back in incase it was loose. The problem still happens and is happening more often than it was before. Also when i reboot this picture comes up that is also pixelated so i can not see it all but on the screen it is all black and has a bunch of numbers and code. The first line says panic (cpu 1 caller 0xffffff802ffce40a) : kernel trap at 0xfffff802ff4785f, type 14=page fault, registers:

please help me figure out what is wrong.

You either have a bad memory module or a failing memory slot in your system.

Carefully remove one of the modules and see if it still freezes up. Then try the other module. You also may find you'll need to use one slot then the other if it still fails using the same slot with the different modules.
