How do I fix my pc beep tone no monitor

You have a PC connected to a monitor.
Now the PC is beeping and there is no display at your monitor

PC beeping most likely can be of the RAM.

1) Switch OFF PC and Main Switch
2) Give the motherboard to discharge (5 minutes)
3) Use a anti-static wrist strip
4) Remove RAM
a) Do not touch the connections of the ram with bare hands
b) Use compress air spray in short blasts to clean the connections and RAM slots
c) Make sure this is done in a well lighted environment. You can trace the dust and remove it with an anti-static cloth.
5) Put RAM inside the slots
6) Switch ON

If above fails
1) Try replacing either your RAMs or PC with a friend's good working conditions.

Please note, since you are removing your RAMs, anything and everything can happen. So be careful and hope for the best.

Another way
Get your hard drive into your friends working PC as a secondary and transfer the data into an external hdd. This way your data is saved.

I get a pop up with a RED CONTRAST screen every few minutes It sometimes goes away if I push the contrast button on my Dell monitor. but it will usually come right back. I have tried everything to stop...

You can try the monitor on another computer to verify it is the monitor and not the display card at fault.

I'm assuming this is an LCD monitor. If you are sure the monitor is the problem, then your monitor's display driver circuit is probably getting close to failing. When one of the three colors (red, green, blue) becomes intermittent, the screen takes on the hue of the working colors. In your case it sounds like the blue is starting to fail.

A repair technician may be able to replace the circuit.

No video out to monitor from desktop.

sure not hard at all. if the monitor is connected to the default onboard video adapter, this is usually one of the first things to malfunction on a new computer. if the monitor works when connected to another machine, but when connected to the desktop the monitors amber or orange light comes on but no video, this usually means there is a connection problem. usually most modern monitors will display a "no input" or "no video" message meaning the connection to the computer is bad. try getting a new video adapter (usually pci/pcie video card) and installing into the pci/pcie video slot in the back of the computer. most are plug and play and require little to no configuration. you should be able to find a nice one for about $20 - $30 dollars at . hope this helps. please rate me and thanks for choosing enterprise computing solutions.

No response from Monitor, Mouse and Keyboard

Definitely a "faulty" motherboard. If fans on PC do not turn, no lights come on and dead screen.

If lights come on, and fans turn, try to reset the BIOS by removing your CMOS (and setting the jumper to clear for about 5 minutes, then put the jumper to normal again) battery for 5 minutes.

Sometimes the bios just "stuffs" up and you'll get no response from your pc at all. So all you do is "CLEAR THE CMOS/BIOS"

PC or monitor, signal problems

your monitor is telling you it's on it's last legs..either that or your compaq has a bad video section. either is more vital than a video cable being loose.
