Default Display is not coming

My computer shutdown automatically.
Later I tried to switch on the machine again but it (CPU) gave 1 long beep and then 3 beeps.

On monitor, it shows that it's trying to find signals (showing HDMI - Digital - Analog) and then monitor goes to standby.

Open the case and found that display card's (8800GT) is stopped and its not working at all.
Remove card and clean it. Still fan was not moving. Clean fan properly and used WD40 and fan started working now.

Placed card back and cabled. But still machine is coming up but there is no display. CPU is still giving 1 long beep & 3 beeps and monitor still showing HDMI - Digital - Analog.

I wonder if GPU is dead!!! But how come fan is working. Do i need to buy new GPU now. Pls help.

That is a RAM error. Try removing a few sticks, see if it helps.
