Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Recently bought a new graphics card for my mesh desktop (pny gforce 9500). After installing it I got it working without any problems until about 2 days after I tried to switch on and all I got was a non responsive monitor and a beeping every 5 seconds from within the unit. I've tried securing cables again and also retrying the old graphics card but with the same outcome, I've also tried a different monitor but also no joy. I'm not the best techie at heart but comfortable with the basics, please
