SOURCE: My emachine W3623 starts with
Remove the RAM and start the PC again. If you get the same three beeps then you're probably looking at bad RAM. If however, the PC makes no noise, or other beep code, then it's not the RAM and in that case it may be the graphics card. In this case, you'll need to do a reflow/resolder of the graphics chip with a hot air gun.
If this was helpful and informative, please give it a Thumb Up. Thank you.
