SOURCE: 3 beeps wont boot
it is probably a ram error,
Unplug the computer and unclip the ram and remove it, clean the ram sticks and the slot that it goes into with a small dry paintbrush. While you have the unit open clean the dust away with a small paintbrush and a hoover at the ready. If you have more than one ram stick, replace one at a time to determine if you have a problem with both or one. If it boots with one, then shut down remove plug from wall socket and then replace the other one too. If it works okay then fine, if it causes problems then you know that the other stick is bad. If it does not boot on replacing first stick, then remove it and put the other stick in and try again.
I hope this helps

You have what sounds like a RAM problem. Try known good RAM as a test. If it still fails, remove add on cards except video. Make sure that video card works. If it still fails to boot. Replace motherboard.

There is no way it's the video card because if it was, your bios wouldn't be showing up.
Try resetting your SEMOS by doing this, it'll put your bios at stock settings. To do this, unplug your computer then take out the battery on your motherboard for 10 mins, plug your computer back in. With computer on, re-insert battery.
You should also try removing any USB devices that may be causing your computer to re-boot.
