It was working fine for 5-6 months after suddenly stoped.
I don't see any VIDEO at all. It always showing SYSTEM FAULT light ON(At backside and on front panel).I have XION dual on this. SC5300LX chasis. Kingston Memories (1gbx4). I checked with Intel support, I did all
-checked without Memory
-checked with one Memory module on A1 slot
-checked with single Processor
-Checked removing all external cards/Floppy/DVD/HDDs/FANS.
And strange thing is one of my friend (He is an idiot I agree now) told me that Mother board is faulty, I HAVE NEW MOTHERBOARD (A 700 Euro I spent again)and see my luck it has a same problem !!!!!
Now some one can tell me WHERE is the problem ? Pls dnt tell me to check with other SERVER -I DON'T HAVE IT.

How many years do you own that desktop computer? You have a problem with your Ram: Transcend: 2GB 1333 Mhz
Ram is always responsible to boot and run all system required by your computer A defect ram cannot boot or not properly run application e.g. Power-On-Self-Test (start up of your computer) Booting your Operating System Running your Application like Microsoft office , Photoshop and so on
3 beeps means that it's a RAM fault. If your memory worked just fine in another pc then it's the fault of the memory controller of the chipset on the motherboard - either the memory slot is loose (move the stick in the slot and try again) or the chipset itself is failing. That can't be fixed, the mobo is dead, replace it.
Hello this could be a power fault, but first check the power plug if it is in contact with the power socket and if it is then you have to open the back cover of the system to check the fuses if blown resistor,capacitor and transistor with the use of a multimeter to check for back component and if bad replace faulty ones. Then power on to confirm, if not on then take it to the manufacturer or a skilled personnel to handle it
After installing pci soundcard you really should disable the onboard sound through bios as the PC may just have become confused as to which sound its trying to use. Also in control panel under sound devices make sure your soundcard is listed and the mute box is not checked.
Here is suggestion:
Disconnect the HDDs and other storage devices and then start your machine.
If this does not isolate your problem. Try changing the keyboard.
Hint: also make sure your motherboard is not touching the metal cabinet anywhere. If so it can cause serious damage to your system.
Ok, since you first did this with Intel support, then I'm guessing that they also had you first take out the CPU(s) and then reinstall it...
Now have you tried testing the RAM in another computer?
Last but not least, have you tried switching out the PSU?
You could also try to use a POST probe PCI card, to see if you get any indication of an error, or that POST was actually initiated.
Usually, you'll at least get a POST beep letting you know what is the problem, but you didn't state that here, so I'm wondering if that is running as well.
