    What is the PC model number and brand? also, I need to know the pattern of the beeps.

    Like this:
    Long beep, pause, short beep twice, pause, long,short, 2 short beeps....

    If you could tell me the length,order, and number of beeps, i can help you much more. The beeping is coming from the system board, and it may be a PCI card or graphics card or any component that isn't seated properly or any number of problems.

Try to check if the graphics card isn't seated correctly, if this one is not builtin/onboard. Also, did the beep problem go away?

No display but OS is booting & running as evident from sound.No display in external monitor also


Does the power on light show on either the OS monitor or the external monitor? If so, and no picture, it is likely to be the graphics card has failed. If in warranty return.

Check that you hooked up all the power supply connections. Try a new motherboard battery as the old one may be dead and the bios is not working. You are evidently not getting a post beep signaling that the cpu, ram, video are good.

No display on computer


First thing is do you have a beep when the system boots? Sounds like you may have a BIOS issue I would start there........your RAM and processor are more than likely NOT the problem

It sounds like the motherboard is damaged. Did you try to start with a boot cd? Or will it just not get to the bios setup screen?
