THANKQ :D
Basically 3 beeps means RAM issue...means you need to remove RAM & re-insert it on motherboard...as you are saying you havn't touched anything still try removing & reinserting the same...but as you trying new video card you can try removing it & start the PC if it is working then we can say that video card is not supportable for your motherboard...have you checked that before buying it...if video card is not compitable to your motherboard then it can make damage to the motherboard due to incompatibility
