Sounds like you may have a intermittant connection.
What i suggest is you whip the lid off and reseat everything.
Another good place to start looking would be the processors and PPM's

Ok I'll bite;

1) Which Generation of ML570 (1, G2, G3, or G4)?

2) Why did you replace 3 power supplies? Indications prior to changing them out?

>...it made a long beep sound and there is a red light...

POST Failure.

How do you know they are fine? Did you try to look at their status through iLO or from another working server?

>...and i dont know what it means.

Me neither, but if I were a gambling man I'd start looking here and I'll bet you just might find what it all means:
