Replace the Thermal Paste on the Processor.

Make SURE you THOROUGHLY clean the Top of the Processor, and bottom of the finned Heatsink; BEFORE Properly applying fresh, new Thermal Paste.

Use a plastic scraper to clean off the Processor, and Heatsink.
I use an old credit card. (Good use for bad rubbish)
Scrape off as much as you can. Use a can of compressed air for computers, and blo-w off the scraped old thermal paste.

Then use Q-tips dipped In Isopropyl Alcohol. (Rubbing alcohol)
91 percent is best, but 70 percent will do.
50 percent = No IMHO. 50 percent water, and 50 percent Alcohol.
Takes a LOT of alcohol dipped Q-tips, as it usually turns into a gooey mess.
How clean? Clean enough you could literally eat off of it.

Isopropyl alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE!
Use in a WELL ventilated area with NO sparks or flames present!

Dripping alcohol off of the Q-tip? Don't sweat it. The alcohol will evaporate.

The BEST method is to actually remove the motherboard.
Because you can then hold the motherboard at eye level, and look across.
Look to SEE that the finned Heatsink is sitting FLAT on the Processor.
CANNOT be ANY daylight seen between the Processor, and Heatsink.

FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions. If you do not know what Anti-Static Precautions are -> STOP!
Post back in a Comment.
You DO NOT want to STATIC SHOCK the Processor, or the other hardware components.

[A Processor is the MOST susceptible hardware component; to Static Shock ]

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

(What you heard is a BIOS Beep Code. The computer's way of telling you something is wrong; and an area to look into for it.

The one long beep means a problem with the Processor.
Thermal Paste dries up over time, and the constant heat of the Processor.
The Thermal Paste looses it's thermal conductivity properties.

[The Processor and graphics chipset; are the two hardware components that give off the most heat ] )

    One long beep and one short beep indicates motherboard problem. What do the Electrolytic Capacitors look like on the motherboard? 1) 2)

    Another thing; Do you have a replacement CMOS battery? It should be a CR2032. (Positive [ + ] side ALWAYS goes UP ) Plus; FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions, (And computer unplugged from power) remove all ram memory modules ('Stick'), and clean the gold plated contact pins with a pencil eraser. Use air to remove the eraser dust, and reinstall. (Can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient)

Continious beep codes are caused by the memory (RAM). Try reseating your RAM just plug it out clean it then put it back in. Or try the other memory slots. Just transfer your memory to the other slot if you have an available slot on your motherboard. Or simply buy a new memory (RAM). Just make sure it is compatible to your motherboard. Beep codes means the computer is not reading the memory (RAM) properly. There is no post and no video in your computer because the RAM is not working properly.

Maybe a silly question but have you downloaded the latest video codecs for your processor?
Are you plugging in all necessary power connections on the motherboard? Does the video card have power connector on it and do you have the necessary power cord plugged into it?
Double, triple, quadruple check that your RAM, video card and your CPU are fully seated. If you still can't get things to go from there, you pretty well need access to another machine for which you can test your parts individually as something is most likely a dud.
good luck

How will you absorved no display

I have looked at a PDF of your manual, but it did not give the BIOS (Basic Input Output) type. I did see a screen shot referencing Phoenix-Award BIOS, so I will give you the video adaptor error for both BIOS manufactures.
Award - You will hear one long beep and two short beeps from the speaker, which is a video adaptor error.
Phoenix - You will hear three beeps pause, four beeps pause and one beep from the speaker, which is a video adaptor error.
If you hear no beeps at all or another sequence of beeps from your speaker it could be another problem.
You can install a PCI Express video card in your computers PCI Express slot to test your on-board video.

It does not start, gives one long beep (about 2-3 seconds) silence and beep again

Switching DDR cards solved the problem. I was getting long beeps every 2 seconds. No short beeps. Just one long beep every 2 seconds. Thanks Josh Whitehead.

3 Beep sounds-No boot

As you probably know 3 long beeps on an Intel motherboard is memory failure. Even if RAM is good your Motherboard may have problems in reading your ram module.
If you are using a PCI or AGP video card try also removing and putting back video card, video adapters use shared RAM and can give you troubles with RAM.
Always perform all maintainance on motherboard with power unplugged and avoid to touch contacts and circuits with your finger.
If the 1GB module is new, verify with seller that your motherboard support this memory, some motherboard do not support double density RAM.
