When power is turned on all I get is a long beep repeated every few seconds and nothing on the screen. I hooked the screen up to another computer and it works fine. I unplugged from the motherboard what I think it the power supply (wires in a bundle go to the power supply and also to all the drives. Any ideas? If I could only get info on the screen I may be able to fix it, lol. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Re: beep code and nothing on monitor
You may be correct about it being a power supply but you need to know the manufacturer of the mother board and check out their website for error codes. Please list your motherboard name and model. A power supply is cheap enough to test your system and you can return it if it does not work. They are real easy to replace too. Unplug your system and leave unplugged for half hour before opening your system. There are 2- 4 screws on the back upper part of your computer and a harness connector that the power to the motherboard goes. It's a good idea to bring in your old power supply to match it with a new one.

sound to me like a video problem. no beep codes, you hear the fan going so it must be posting. could you try with other monitor and or cable? is there power to monitor? reseat cable at both ends( monitor+ pc)
Typically the graphics card went out. Other possibilities include, loose monitor cable or short in the cable, or incorrect graphics driver installed or missing, or monitor is shot (least possible). Things to look for: When booting up are you able to see words in the monitor or is there a series of non-regular error code beeps? If beeps then most likely your graphics card is either loose or fried, or incompatible. If you it works fine, but the light on the monitor turns orange and screen goes black, then it's most likely a loose monitor data cable or there is a short in the cable, or monitor's power cable is loose. Then check both connections, power and data on the monitor, and also where it hooks to the computer make sure it's screwed in snug.
Annoying! happens to us too frequently, but this works. We ended up buying a new one and returning our broken one after owning for three months
5. Turn on the Nursery Unit using the On/Off switch on the side. The green power light should come on.
6. Within a few seconds, the Parent Unit will lock on to the Nursery Unit and the top four (4) green LEDs will shut off.
A second later, you will hear a series of beeps and the connection LED should change from red to green. Your monitor is now
ready for use.
7. If the top four (4) LEDs do not shut off, power off the Parent Unit and the Nursery Unit and repeat steps 4 and 5 above.
8. If the connection LED on the Parent Unit does not change from red to green and the unit begins to beep, press the
channel "ch" button on the Nursery Unit. Within a few seconds, the Parent Unit should lock in on the Nursery Unit and
the connection LED should change from red to green. You may hear an audible beep during this process.
9. If the Parent Unit is still unable to lock in on the Nursery Unit (connection LED will be red and the unit will beep), power down
both the Parent Unit and the Nursery Unit. Wait for 10 seconds then hold the volume down button on the Parent Unit while
pressing the On/Off switch. When the unit powers up, you will hear a single beep and all of the soundlights will illuminate.
Release the volume down switch and within 2 seconds you will hear two beeps and all of the Sound Light LEDs will stay lit and
the bottom LED will be red.
10. Repeat steps 5
Also, if it was previously plugged in to HD, it might need to be switched back to SD cable. To do this switch your ps3 off, then press and hold the power button when you turn it on. It will beep once when you turn it on, then beep again after a few seconds. Once it's beeped the second time the display settings will be reset and hopefully it will show up on the screen.
plz try by removing the connector of the monitor from the back of cpu while keeping your monitor power on. if you get any message in the monitor then your monitor is ok. then open your side cover and try by resiting the ram, you have to swithch off your pc before opening your side cover. If you dont get any thing in the monitor then *********** board is having problem
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!
