After hours of searching i found out the beep signal for this motherboard
and according to the manual thid beep that im getting is due to a DRAM error.
I have removed all the RAM, PCI, VGA, HD and cd roms from mother board and i
still get this error.
By any chance is there any thing i could do to fic this or i should go for a
new motherboard?

You need to ensure that you're referencing the correct BIOS. In some systems, one long beep, particularly with nothing on the display can indicate no, or a bad video card, if I recall correctly.

However, if you're sure you have the right manual and BIOS, then you could simply have a motherboard failure.

If the the continuous beep is said to be the indicator for bad memory
and you have tried known good memory, then it is likely the ram socket
on the motherboard or the connection to it. So replacing the MB would be
the solution.

A simple thing to try: take out all the RAM, PCI/AGP cards, etc, and use
a soft brush or compressed air to clean out all the slots, and wipe off
the connectors on the edge of the cards/RAM - I have seen dust/lint/hairs
cause errors like this that can be fixed with a simple cleaning.

If you put things back in and reboot one at a time, you may get different
beep codes that would give you a few more hints on what component may be
bad. There is often a different code for bad memory, bad video, etc. A
bad video card may show as "bad memory", too.
