Ok just recently I had to mess aroudn with the computer because the power button wasn't working so, now I have to place a screwdriver on certain pins on the motherboard to start it. Well today when I wanted to start it up I hear three load beeps in a row, but the computer sounds like it is starting up while the monitor show's no signs of starting. What could this be?

One thing after another :( Check you RAM to make sure it didn't accidently get knocked loose.

Well I have switched out all 3 rams, putting 1 in each time, but I still am getting the same error, well at further investigation it seems like it is 1 slightly longer than the other 2. Well I checked that chart again, that beep arrangement says something is wrong with the video card unit. Well I took the card out and put it back in and that doesn't seem like the problem. Do you guys have any other ideas?

Only that you need to try another video card. If it is faulty then taking it out and putting it back will not help.
