Default beeping problem

well my computer started freezing up and crashing like every 5 minutes, so i took my pc apart and reseated the ram. i tried every combination of the ram too. well, once i got my computer back together and started it, i get repeated long beeps and nothing shows up on the monitor. i checked my bios error codes and it said that it could be the power supply, loose card, or loose cables. I've checked everything and it all seems to be connected properly. does anyone have any suggestions? i'd really hate to have to take it in and spend money to get fixed.

Soo have you tried another power supply? :P

also Try Booting with only the bare minimum, 1 stick of RAM, Video card and CPU.

also clear CMOS Before doing so.

i would pick up a PSU with a good return policy from a local store and see if that helps if it doesnt then try another old graphics card or something and if that fails its looking like the motherboard.
