This is generally caused by a bad battery or a failed memory chip. Start by removing the battery and starting the machine with the power supply only. Then remove the memory and try each chip one at a time in each slot. If these do not work, then the problem will most likely be a failed component in the power management system on the motherboard, and will need professionally diagnosed in order to track down the exact problem component.

When I turn it on I get three beeps and nothing else


Hi,

The 3 beeps are correct diagnosis for the screen problems.

reboot, keep tapping F8, till you get to
the start up screen ( black dos screen )

Try the last known good first at the top, let it roll.

If this fails, try safe mode, let it boot up, then try a system restore,
start,all progz, accessories,system tools,system restore, try go back in time.

If you cannot get into the "black" start up screen at all, your video card, has failed.

because you should get minimum of VGA graphics in safe mode.

if you do, then the video driver is corrupted and needs updating

Regards
Richard.

Screen won't appear upon start up and I get 3 beeps but no screen


3 beeps POST code (power on self test) means RAM problem.
Reseat the RAM module/s and boot up your computer.
If you have two RAM modules, remove them both and insert one at a time to test them, to determine which module is faulty.
If it still doesn't work then replace the RAM module/s
