Hello,
I removed the battery-no help, I unpluged all cables and cards-no help. I left it set about 30hrs and then checked-no help. At start up the fans run, 3 long beeps and thats it. Fans keep running

Hi, you have duplicate appends going. Suggest you close one. Here's answer from other post.

The three beeps are beep codes. The MB is trying to tell you something.

3 beeps? That's bad memory.

" Reseat the memory.
Make sure that the contacts on the memory and the socket are clean.
Try removing one bank of memory modules at a time. (Some systems can require a memory module in Bank 0.)
Try using memory modules from the same manufacturer with the same part number and speed.
Check for a faulty memory module by trying the memory in a known good system."

good news. If it turns out to me memory, memory is currently really cheap.
