It looks like your mother board is old one. If so clean it with IPA solution (Iso propyl alcohol). Replace the processor.Then try again. You can also try changing your Video card. That can cause problems if not seated properly. If nothing works get your motherboard serviced.

Unplug hard drive, no beeps? Unplug CD-ROM, no beeps? Remove RAM, no beeps? 85% it's the MOBO. Static, surge or just plain dead (and cheap).

If i understand you correctly, you are saying that you have a single beep repeating over and over with nothing showing on the monitor and no other response from your computer? The single long beep in a loop is an Award Bios beep code for a faulty CPU. This problem is not mentioned on the official website of the manufacturer. Unfortunately your only option is to replace the CPU. You might try removing and re-seating the cpu making sure you have proper cooling measures in place. Hope that helps!
