Go to your bios and check if your bios allow that. Usually if you connect a card on the motherboard slot automatically the on board card becomes unavailable.
If your bios doesn't allow to make changes you can add another pci video card or connect some vga split signal to get the image on 3, 4, or more monitors with a single device.

I purchased 2 GB chips to try to increase the speed of my desktop. After putting in the chips my computer won't boot back up, my monitor is black and the computer is making a constant beeping nois


OK. First, I'm assuming that you have a Dell Vostro 200 as per the topic title. That said, you machine has a maximum memory capacity of 4GB. So, if you added the 2 - 2GB DIMMS in slots 3 and 4, leaving your original memory in the machine, you will have problems. You must be using DDR2 667 or 800 MHz RAM and the two DIMMS must be in slots DIMM1 and DIMM2 ( closest to the processor). No more than that can be installed.

I want to run 3 monitors on my dell vostro


Hi,
 
Couple of points I’d like to mention. Vostro has two models slim and mini tower. Both of them are mostly similar so this should be applicable for whichever you have.
 
The default graphics card on the computer is integrated on the motherboard. When you add another video card, say to the PCI-Express 16x slot on the motherboard, this disables the integrated video card.
 
If the 2 monitors are connected to the video card, both would get display.
When the computer is turned ON, if you plug in the 3rd monitor to the integrated video card, you would not get any display on the 3rd monitor. BUT if you restart the computer with the 3rd monitor plugged in, the computer would give a signal to the 3rd monitor and disable the two monitors connected to the video card. This feature is added on purpose to diagnose any possible video card problems. Eg. Assuming there was a problem with the video card, if this feature were not available you would not get any display on the monitor from any of the ports and you would not be able to diagnose if the problem was with the monitor, integrated video or the video card.
 
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!
Thanks,
VJ

Go to a shop that has computer guys and ask them. You're probably going to need to do some mesurements and then consult with someone at a computer hardware store.
