    Well, to make things clear, i have uploaded the video of booting of my PC... Notice the beeps... I have tried to compare the beeps with beep codes but was not able to find a match...
    Here's the link to video:

    No startup, computer beeps - YouTube

    And I didn't noticed any blown capacitor... Can beep code help in diagnosing my case?

    Is there any warranty left on the motherboard? Everything seeks to be pointing in that direction.

    But, first, try booting the system with EVERTHING disconnected. I had a keyboard that fooled me into replacing a motherboard. Pull the video card, disconnect the HDD's and optical drives (pull their cables from the motherboard but takes notes as to where they were plugged in), unplug the mouse and keyboard and even LAN/USB. Motherboard, CPU and RAM only. If you get the repeating 3 beep code, the motherboard is toast. Replace motherboard and PSU.

    As you can see in the video, only power and HDMI are connected.
    so motherboard might be the case :cry:

    oh the video card should also be removed? But we checked the video card it works fine, do you want us to check if the motherboard works alone or not ??

    Motherboard, Ram, CPU and NOTHING else. This is to verify what we're all thinking - that it's the motherboard.

    Sorry if this was posted:

    Normally it is great when you have beep tones. You will be able to count them and then very easily locate the issue in many cases. You should be able to find the beep codes here:

    Try a different video card and try updating BIOS if it starts up.

    RAM and plug in parts were checked in my system , they are fine.
    power supply was replaced with my spare power supply, so we think power supply is fine
