Hello world!

I have a problem with my computer...
My computer a:
Motherboard:M2N-E(green)
2 gigs of ram
GPU:ATI 1650X Pro
PSU: Dynex 400W(replaced my previous defective PSU)
SATA harddrive...
And so on..
Now my computer have major issues.
When i press the power button it may often not boot instead it will just power down (No beep) likely meaning a bad connection or video card or PSU even a probleme with the board... kinda vague.
Or other times i'll get 1 long beep and 2 short ones. Same meaning.
Whilst in windows the OS freezes and clips, i have noticed that if lightly tap (as light as you wouldpet a hamster?) the case it declips. This could be that something is loose or faulty, a bad cap maybe? I dont know. And i fear this may be one of the first times i throw in the towel and bring it to the shop i give the comp and me one week before i pack'er in.

PLease any input is appreciated
haha

Beep codes. Check your bios accordingly.

I'd run Memtest on the RAM, Memtest86.com - Memory Diagnostic - http://www.memtest86.com/

**SOLVED**
The motherboard was warped because of my cheap case. I figured this out when I realised that all components on the north bridge worked but all the components on the south bridge were all messed up. So i discharged myself and put some pressure here and there to find that when there was pressure around the south bridge it would start working again. My fix for this problem was to buy a new case. Worked like a charm.
