According to Apple, three beeps at startup mean "no good banks," which I believe means bad RAM. Or I've seen other folks on other websites suggest that maybe it could mean the RAM is just badly seated -- you might try removing and reinstalling your RAM chips? Here's the Apple page describing the beeps: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1547

If you are not a highly experienced person with a soldering iron I would not attempt this repair. On the other hand without repair the logic board needs to be replaced so if you are capable or know someone who is you can give it a try. Understand if the connector is messed up you will need to replace the logic board. Ralph

You might advertise on CraigsList for someone who is good at soldering. For someone who knows what they are doing it's a very easy repair. I was able to salvage a very nice G4 iBook which had the exact issue as yours, and it's all due to the fact that I happened to run into the right person.
