Reboot in SAFE MODE. windows should load the most basic video drivers. If not, change video card and repair your drivers.

    If you have a laptop or can borrow one, place and connect your monitor to the vga port to test the monitor.If you know that graphics card is good, make sure...

    2nd- take out the video card & replace it with another DIFFERENT card. Windows will find it & automatically replace the drivers.once you can see the desktop u can reinstall your

    old original drivers and graphics card.

    question: you said "on your last update" ,What did you use to update win_vista ? Usually an update does not damage drivers.

When I turn it on I get three beeps and nothing else


The 3 beeps are correct diagnosis for the screen problems.

reboot, keep tapping F8, till you get to
the start up screen ( black dos screen )

Try the last known good first at the top, let it roll.

If this fails, try safe mode, let it boot up, then try a system restore,
start,all progz, accessories,system tools,system restore, try go back in time.

If you cannot get into the "black" start up screen at all, your video card, has failed.

because you should get minimum of VGA graphics in safe mode.

if you do, then the video driver is corrupted and needs updating

Compaq presario laptop display problem

Use system restore to bring back the computer to a date before the one you started to have troubles with the screen. After this you may need to reinstall display drivers, as you installed an older version after getting in troubles.
