That would be ram or keyboard, but because there are no picture to screen, then most likely its ram.

Try to reseat ram modules,
or if its two modules then you can remove one power on and then another one and power on to determine which one is faulty,
or replace the ram.

Beep sound continus


I went to google and it seems like the beeps can be problems for different problems in the hardware, this is what one message says,  there are lots of computer beeping answers out there: 1 short beep is your BIOS saying "HELLO I'M OK" 

Standard Original IBM POST Error Codes 

1 short beep Normal POST - system is ok 
2 short beeps POST Error - error code shown on screen 
No beep Power supply or system board problem 
Continuous beep Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem 
Repeating short beeps Power supply or system board problem 
1 long, 1 short beep System board problem 
1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA) 
1 long, 3 short beeps Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) 
3 long beeps keyboard card 

Each BIOS company has modified these codes over the years.

Blank screen long beep 2 short beeps at startup.


The 1 long 2 short beep code means a problem in the video circuitry and the laptop can't initialize the display. This is usually caused by failure of the integrated video chipset. Unfortunately, on a laptop you can't just open the case and install a new video card like you can on a desktop. You need to replace the mainboard. Replacements are available online. Here is one source found by a Google search. (I'm just using this as an example. I haven't dealt with this site.)

The 4 beep code means no memory detected when the computer started up. No surprise there since you had taken it out.
