Turns on with no display and beeps

The motherboard is unable to talk to the computer's video card , RAM, or CPU. you'll need to open the case up to troubleshoot and re-seat the components/figure out what's wrong. (or of course bring it to a computer repair shop if you don't know what you're doing inside the machine).
