Default Mainboard no video

Hey,
I just tested a system out of case and it was working fine.
After that I put the board back in a case. When I did I was getting no video. I took the board back out connected a speaker to it to get POST beeps, which I did. The beeps are three continous beeps then a long pause, then three continous beeps and a long pause etc. The specs are:

PCChips M825LU V7.2C
AMD Duron 1.4Ghz
256MB PMI DDR-266
350W L&C Power Supply
Onboard VIA KM266 Chipset
Further specs at http://www.pcchipsusa.com/prod-m825luv75c.asp

The system was working out of case with all the same components, nothing was changed. In a non-static enviroment.

If someone could tell me what the three beep codes mean that would be good, thanks.

It might be base 64k memory failure!

The odd thing is I don't get beep codes when the motherboard is sitting in case. Like its shorted or something?

If the motherboard is damaged could I salvage the Proccessor and RAM? And if I can could it possibly damage a motherboard I use it in?
