Sounds like a video adapter problem. Try taking your video card out and then reseating it into the PCI slot. Make sure your monitor is connected correctly. Also, it might not hurt to make sure the all other periphs are seated correctly. (RAM,Network card, etc) hope this helps

Trying to restore back to factory settings


System Recovery
When you've tried other methods of repairing your
system software (like System Restore or Application
Recovery), you may want to use the Compaq System
Recovery program as a last resort to reinstall the software.
When necessary, you can reinstall the operating system and
the application software that was originally installed on the
PC at the factory by using the System Recovery program.
WARNING: The Compaq System Recovery
program will delete any data or programs
that you installed after purchase. Be sure to
back up any data that you want to keep onto
a removable disc.
The System Recovery program uses a special recovery
partition on the hard disk drive that stores an image of the
original software.
NOTE: The System Recovery image is in a partition area
of the hard disk drive and takes up part of the total drive
space. This disk space is not usually available for your use.
In the unlikely event that you replace the hard disk drive,
or somehow damage the data in the special recovery
partition on the hard disk drive, use recovery discs to
reinstall the operating system and software on the hard disk
drive. See "System Recovery Using Recovery Discs."
Make your own recovery discs (CDs or DVDs) before you
need them; see "Creating Recovery CDs/DVDs." You can
also make the Recovery Tools CD. This CD contains utilities
that allow you to make changes to your hard disk drive; see
"Using the Recovery Tools CD."
Starting System Recovery
if the PC Is Responding
1 Turn off the PC. Disconnect all peripheral devices from
the PC except the monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse.
Turn on the PC.
2 Click Start on the taskbar, choose All Programs,
choose PC Help & Tools, and then click Compaq
System Recovery.
3 Wait until the System Recovery window appears asking
Do you really want to start System Recovery?
4 Click Yes to continue with the recovery process. If you
created recovery discs, you may be directed to insert
recovery disc #1. If the Recovery disc is a DVD, be sure
to put the disc in a DVD drive.
5 The PC starts the recovery; wait for the onscreen
instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
6 Complete the PC startup, finish the registration process,
and wait until you see the desktop. Then, turn off the PC,
reconnect all peripheral devices, and then turn on the PC.
Starting System Recovery if the PC
Is Not Responding
1 Turn off the PC. If necessary, press and hold the On
button until the PC turns off.
2 Disconnect all peripheral devices from the PC except the
monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse.
3 Press the On button to turn on the PC.
4 During the startup, do the following to enter the System
Recovery program:
When the black screen with the Compaq logo appears,
press the F10 key on the keyboard. (You have only a few
seconds to press the F10 key before the normal startup
process continues.)
5 The PC starts the recovery; wait for the onscreen
instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
6 Complete the PC startup, finish the registration process,
and wait until you see the desktop. Then, turn off the PC,
reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the PC.

Has anything changed since it was working last? check that first
Next -- the Beep codes indicate a hardware problem --the PC was unable to POST(Power On Self Test-)-but DELL's beep codes closest to what you described is either 1-2-video card not detected or 1-3-1-1 which is Memory (RAM) error adn the PHEONIX beep code of 1-3-2 is Memory error also-- so be sure all cards and chips are seated properly--I dont think its the hardrive --a PC can still boot and POST without a hardrive.

the beeps codes means there is a problem with a piece of hardware (RAM, or graphics card ,etc)
I need to know the BIOS manufacturer to interpret the code (phoenix or award or AMI)
for COMPAQ it means BIOS error --and will have to reload it from a recovery cd.
for IBM it means system board failure-- need new mobo--for a beep code of 1 long and 2 short most all mean graphics card problem.

Does the Dell laptop have recovery software. If it does, here's a way to overcome the problem and make your own set of recovery disks.

When you do a destructive restore, it actually rolls back all of the software, including the recovery software so you can actually make a set. At this point, it will fix all of the software issues.

Boot up problems


If it won't go past the splash screen, and you have replaced the CPU, I agree that it is probably the motherboard.
One other test you can do is, remove the memory chips, and any cards that are plugged it, and see if it beeps on start up.
If it does, count the beeps. If it doesn't it is the motherboard.
If you get beeps, plug the memory back in, and try again. Listen for beeps. Let us know what you find.

And I don't know if Compaq's do this (Dells do) when you turn it on, do the fans spin up normally? Or does it sound like a small jet? Speaking of which, do you see the fans spin up at all?

Monitor not getting signal


Check your cables.
If the cables are fine then there is something
wrong with your comuter.

Do you hear any beeping sounds?
