@sonni_boiii , welcome to the forum.

 

Three long beeps followed by two short beeps is a memory initialization error.  This means that the memory has failed.  If you only have one stick of memory it is very difficult to diagnose.  If you have more than one stick, you can remove all of them and replace them one stick at a time in the slot closest to the processor and boot.  Test each stick this way.

It still does the same thing without ram though, I took out the ram to try to boot just into the bios and it still did the same exact thing, same beep code and everything. And each ram stick gives the same beep code, i cant try the original ram stick because i gave it to my brother and he won't let me test it, do you think I possibly could've shorted something on my motherboard?

Or could I have damaged my gpu or pcie slot?

Could my cpu be dead?

Just thinking of ideas because im confused at this point.

@sonni_boiii, when the memory is removed, you will get the error code beeps.  You will have to install at least one stick of memory in Slot 1 to see if it boots.

I did that and now there's no beep code and no display output my system is just turning on my led strip and fans and then turning them off and on and off, do you think my motherboard is damaged? Or my cpu?

Thank you for the additional information, @sonni_boiii!

 

If you have more than one stick of memory did you try all them one at a time?  I don't believe that it is the motherboard.  I believe it is the memory causing your problem, but you need to test each stick separately.

@old_geekster,

Do you need my magnifier eye glasses ?😉🙄

@sonni_boiii 

That unit only had a single 16GB RAM module.  You used the word "each"?

What do you mean by "each ram stick gives the same beep code, and I  cant try the original ram stick because i gave it to my brother and he won't let me test it".  That implies you made a chance, and that change is at issue.

Three beeps that repeat after a pause and occur when you power on your computer indicate a problem with the system memory. Three beeps that play and then stop as the computer starts successfully mean that the BIOS was restored. While some other programs may also have a three-beep sound, those that mean you need to take action and repair your computer will sound right as the computer operating system is turning on, and the tones will replay after a pause. The beeps will continue until the computer is powered off and will play again when it's on unless the problem is fixed.
