the earlier one beep was from pc100 test
that is was what I thought & why I asked the question what speed the FSB was.
So I have to assume that your MoBo's CMOS setup has your FSB settings or you would have changed
back the FSB with jumpers to 100 also I have to assume you did not reset the cmos that would have set the FSB back to 100 MHz (which could be part of the problem). Remove the battery for 10 minutes
& then put it back in if you can not clear the CMOS with the jumper.
The point is if you had cleared CMOS the pc100
ram should work for you so can clearly say that
my ram is not the problem & the 120 MHz FSB is not the problem.

The problem is I do not have a clear idea what you have done & in what order.

Also you need to try a different type of video card like PCI so you can say the the video card
or the AGP is not the problem.

Clear CMOS
bare bones with a video card then a different type
& other tests here

If you do not have a MoBo manual ID all the wires
like power button, reset, HD LED, power LED, speaker, fans.
remove MoBo & barebones test on a board or box
so the video card slot can hang over the edge.
this test if you got a short thru the computer
case which is grounded.

All we know for sure right now is the computer
is going thru some of its POST's the
Power On System Test so something is working.

Problems still could be
FSB speed (chipset may no longer handle the speed)
RAM (just because of no beeps still could be bad)
video card (just because of no beeps still bad ?)
KeyBoard ?
A short to the case or PS to MoBo
