Question Gateway ZX6980 All-In-One Won't Start - 6 Beeps Repeat

A couple of weeks ago my computer (running Win 10) started to beep 6 times at startup, and then while operating it would occasionally go to BSOD with a "Memory Management" stop code. I tried all of the various basic fixes associated with this code (driver and Win updates, CHKDSK, etc) but nothing worked. As of yesterday, I can't even start up the computer -- the motherboard fan comes on, but the machine just beeps repeatedly (in 6-beep sequences) and the screen stays black.

Seems like a hardware issue - is it likely RAM, motherboard or something else? Any suggestions? The BIOS was up to date as far as I know. I did run the basic Windows Memory diagnostic tool with no results, but never got the chance to run something like MemTest. I have not yet opened the machine to physically clean the components - could try that next. Thanks in advance.
