Acer 5100 monitor problem

I have an acer 5100 - 3583 monitor problem. now I tried it on an external monitor and it didn't work and when I do start it up i get two beeps one long one short from which I gathered the video card is not complying with the mother board. anything i can do. ( I am keen to opening it up and coo to soldering and stuff like that too so i don't mind doing that.)

Thank you,
Rondo

My best advice would to send it back to the manufacturer if it is still under warranty. If you open it up and try to fix it yourself and something else goes wrong in the process than the original warranty would be void and you would end up with a nice paper weight.
