Lenovo L440 makes 8 signals (1-3-3-1)

Hello. I have Lenovo L440 laptop. As I remember BIOS is Phoenix. When I turn on my laptop, it makes 1-3-3-1 (1 signal, pause, 3 signals, pause, 3 signals, pause, 1 signal). I could find in Internet what those signals mean. I could find only 1-3-3. 
Tell me please, what is wrong with my laptop? Thank you.

Hello and welcome,


From the (English) Hardware Maintenance Manual - ThinkPad L440, L540


One short beep, pause, three short beeps, pause, three
more short beeps, pause, and one short beep


Shut down the computer immediately. Ensure that
memory modules are installed correctly. If they are, and
you still hear the beeps, have the computer serviced.


That would seem to indicate memory issues.

If you have another memory stick, try it.
