SOURCE: NO Signal to monitor
Make sure your computer is off then: 1- keep press and release "F8" button on your keyboard while turning your computer on. 2- you should see a black screen with some text on it. choos "Safe Mode" If you still can't see anything you need to make sure all cables are connected and are not damaged. If still have problem you need to open your computer case and fasten all cables and cards because when your son pulled the cabel this could moved your computer case unsafely and loosen the cables inside. If you still have problem this means your hard drive has been damaged due to sudden movement while it was operating.(even if it's not operating sudden movement coulds damaged the hard drive). you need to buy a hard drive and install a fresh window on it but if you can not do it. Find your local computer repair shop (Yellow page- Thumson Local ...) Good Luck Please let me know of your progress and leave me a good feedback. Kind Regards

SOURCE: monitor doesnt switch on
Can you try another monitor?
Since you did try another video card (AGP). I posted (In you're other post), you have to make a bios adjustment under Advanced menu. Once you're P4SP-MX bios is set to boot to the AGP or set to Enable. The bios will no longer try to load the on-board VGA card. I am not being picky about the statement I am going to make ( so don't be offended). Monitor's only receive signal. They do not send signal to PC, just receive. The odds of two video cards not working is high. You did mention you have not heard P.O.S.T (A single beep), which is a test of the motherboard. There could be a loose connection in you're PC. I would remove the memory first. Clean the contacts with alcohol on a cotton swab & blow out the memory slots with canned air (allow time to dry). Than firmely reseat the memory. I would than re-check all data & power connectors within the PC, making sure all are securley connected. With respect to the AGP card, I would do the same. Remove, clean & reseat. Most older AGP's require additional power. Some use a power cable that is also used to power a floppy drive & others use a 4 pin molex (see link),
When you are in the bios & within the Advanced menu you may also need to set the bios to read you're AGP card to the correct speed. (EX: 1x,2x,4x). Page 2-19 in you're manual. Once all these checks & cleaning have been completed, try again. Boot the PC and hopefully you will see display on you're monitor.
Post here. Let me know how thing go. Don't assume anything, check all.

SOURCE: CPU bleeping constantly.
Yes that means the computer has failed POST. So yes, something has come loose or has got damaged.
"POST" is an acronym for Power On Self-Test. The POST process checks the basic system functions before attempting to load an operating system. It checks RAM, processor, drives, system interface, etc. If POST fails, the system will normally halt and may produce a series of beeps from the computer speaker which can help indicate the cause of the problem.

You need to check on your CPU. You get the no signal informational message on your monitor if the computer itself is not running.
The beep may indicate different errors. It could be an issue with the a faulty memory card or the graphics (video) card. Try to use a blower to clean the inside part of the CPU. And then re-attach the memory card to their slots.
You need to take note how many beep it gives you. This could be very useful in helping you pin point the exact issue.
