I have got a MSI mobo PM8PM-V. Few hows back i tried to boot the system and it gave some wired beep sounds. Not the regular one, so i have attached the sound file.
The system was previously working fine.
Please help me. When the sound is being played the proccy fan spins and the floppy LED glows continuously but there is no display.

I'm assuming you're getting "long beeps with an interval of say 2-3 seconds". Long beeps are generally a RAM issue. Try using one ram module at a time.
