Ive been having problem's first problem was that it only turned on for 1 second and turned off i took out the cmos battery and it turned on when i hold down the switch. No display. No beep.
So then i inserted a graphic's card (At first i used my built in graphic's)
This time the computer turned on with the cmos battery in first time but i had no display. It made a short beep then all the fans went very quite. And my motherboard needs ESP 8pin connector for the cpu. I used 4 pin.

i3 540-530 Not sure
2gb ram -Generic
Graphic card is 1gb GEforce
-Problem solved,
It was a graphic related problem.

Beep codes during POST (for your motherboard)
1 short beep: System boots succesfully
2 short: CMOS getting error
1 long, 1 short: memory and motherboard error
1 long, 2 shorts: monitor or graphics card error
1 long, 3 shorts: keyboard error
1 long, 9 shorts: BIOS ROM error
continuous long beeps: graphic card not inserted properly
continous short beeps: power error

For more information, refer to your motherboard manual on page: pg. 115 (down at the bottom) and pg 116 & 117 for troubleshooting.
