Your monitor may not support the SATA drive or the graphics card you put in.

Either one of your new components are incompatible with your motherboard or you fried your motherboard.
Try taking out the graphics card to see if it boots with the sata drive and vice versa to make sure its not a compatability problem.
If you find it won't work after any situation then you fried your motherboard and you might as well buy a new motherboard or a new computer altogether.

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.
the specs can be found at this link
the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies
memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
i hope this helps --
