Re: Blank screen(beeping sound)
1 long beep is usually graphics card..
try booting to external monitor... connect your laptop using the serial port or by S-Video cable to a desktop monitor or similar..., then press FUNCTION and F5 to switch to the external monitor, if the laptops Screen is viewable on the external source.... then it is a bad video card...

Re: Blank screen(beeping sound)
It's definitly a memory issue. What you might wanna do, is open your CPU and take out the memory sticks from the memory slots. After this, try either blowing or vacumming (if you have one of em small PC vacumm cleaners) the slots whcih contained the memory sticks. Also, dont forget to blow off any dirt that might be on the memory stick(s) itself.
After this, just insert the memory stick(s) back into it's slot(s) and try to rebppt your computer again. Most of the time it should work. However, if you still face this issue, then it means that your memory itself is corrupt and you might need to buy a similar capacity memory altogether.
As a side note, if your computer comes from a manufacturer like dell or acer, you might wanna get them to look into the issue if it;s still under warranty (or even if it's not). Certain "branded" computers have their own way of functioning. Hope this helped.

I assume you have had the side panel off to watch the cpu fan spin up? if it does spin up and you get no bios beeps, then the fault is with the motherboard or CPU, most probably the motherboard. Problem sounds like capacitors blown or leaking ( have a look at the board and see if any are bulging or leaking). I've had similar issues with the motherboards that HP use, in all cases it was the motherboard at fault
just dump everything and buy a branded new PC....
u will be increasing ur BP....it;s not worth this much effort....
the kind of work u have done...it seems ur an expert so u urself work it out what's wrong...and where did u make a mistake...
i guess ur CPU and MB are not getting along....some issue with ur integration.....of all parts....
I need many more information 1) is their a power on the CPU. if yes lets check the monitor, uplug the monitor and turn only the monitor on, their should be some message on the monitor. If no error message on the monitor, possible monitor issue. 2) do you find any error message on the screen 2) If no light on the tower, do you find any light on the back.. please reply to this question
It looks like issue with either mother board or processor.
open the box and remove all memey and power it on.
if it makes a beep sound, there is no issue with processor,
else we suscpect processor.
If it make beep sound, it might be mother board issue.
And for checking monitor working condition, remove monitor data cable and see no cable connected messages comes in monitor or not
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 tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.
