Pretty weird, because the 3 beeps clearly meant that there was something wrong with the graphics card.

Anyways, I would like to thank you all for the help that you've given me!
Sometimes re seating some hardware fixes the issue because it could be loose not all the way secure or even missed aligned

First thing is to always double check all components because there are times you might forget to connect something crucial to your Rig

Good Job too Lepper

Never mind what I said about the computer working again.
It makes the same sounds again even when I re seat the RAM or graphics card.

Looks like I am back to where I started again.

Can you tell me what PSU you have ?

Sure, it's a "ADVANCE MPT-7500 - 750 Watt"

At first I thought it was a problem with my PSU, so I bought a new one. Since this one was quite cheap and had a lot of Watt, I decided to just buy the same PSU again.

While the PSU may not be the problem here, it's really not advisable to buy cheap PSUs. I always recommend Corsair PSUs, cheap ones really can be the cause of many a problem.

I'm pretty sure you're right about that, but my computer has been running on this PSU for about 1 and a half years without any problems. Also, nothing changed when I switched the old PSU with the new one.

Do you think buying one of those Corsair PSUs could solve my problem?

It probably won't, you have ample power it's just that cheaper PSUs are much less reliable. In the long run I'd suggest getting a better one but I think that's an aside to your problem if you've just fitted a new one.

So far I've checked every piece of hardware that is built into my computer exept fot my motherboard. I think the problem might lay there. Do you think it would be wise to replace my motherboard with a new one? If so, is it difficult to do?

Have you tried the GPU in a different PCI slot? That may be worth a shot if you haven't already. We could do with knowing what motherboard you have really, download and run Piriform Speccy and that will tell you what you have.

Changing the motherboard is probably the most difficult aspect of upgrading a PC, you must make sure you get the correct socket type for your CPU first and foremost. And it will all depend on what version of Windows you have, if you have a retail copy you'll be OK but if you have an OEM copy then it's tied to your current motherboard so you'd have to buy a new copy of Windows.

There's only 1 PCI slot where my GPU can fit in, unfortunately.
I also can't really check what kind of motherboard I have since I still get a black screen.
Hopefully I can get it to work one more time (for some reason it seems to boot normally sometimes) and download the Piriform tool.

Storage driver giving me the blue screen of death?
My computer has been freezing lately, and giving me a blue sreen of death. When it doesn't and I can actually use it, I have windows scan for problems. When Windows finds the problem it says that it is a storage driver problem. I don't know what to do from here.
