Sounds to me as though you have a video issue. Those beeps you hear are called POST beeps, and they are an error message. It could be trying to load still, but you are just not seeing anything. Is all you get a black screen to begin with? If so first check to make sure your video card has not come loose. If that is not the case, then I would suggest replacing your video card. Hope this helps.

Hi. Do this solution first in the motherboard only processor installed need no memory.then power on your PC.if your motherboard no continues beeping.that need replacement of parts specially capacitor leakage,became big or burn parts. See beeping code.
Beep Code: Description of Problem:
Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals
Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine
One Long Beep, One Short Beep
One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps
One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps
Three Long Beeps
Repeated Long Beeps
Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps
According to the sequence of beeps your getting from your computer, ther is a possibility that there is a problem with the memory module or RAM on your computer. Try reseating the memory then try to boot up again.
Hi, Beeps are usually a warning that the computer is having hardware issues, this is usually down to the memory being bad. Try taking out the system memory and clean the contacts and the slots that the memory snaps into with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory and try to boot the machine up. If it still won't boot count the number of beeps and if they are long or short and post back here.
Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB.
Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board:
AWARD BIOS Beep Codes
1 short: System boots successfully
2 short: CMOS setting error
1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error
1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error
1 long 3 short: Keyboard error
1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error
Continuous long beeps: DRAM error
Continuous short beeps: Power error
As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps.
When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system.
Bios codes from the link below.
3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to memtest.org Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11
You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory.
This should help.
Thanks for using FixYa!
Hi there. No i doubt its the chipset but rather the system memory. Pull the power cord from the back, open the side panel, get a clean dry soft paintbrush, take out the system memory and clean the brass pins and the ram slots of any dust that may have built up, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place nice and tight and try to boot the computer up again. If you still get beeps count how many there are and if they are long or short and post back here.
