Dear! If the CPU creates a beep its means that your CPU have a RAM problem then moniter does not give display. So change your Ram's slot and put RAM in other slot that is availabel and try again to start the PC. It is very possible to solve your problem and if problem will remain same you should change your RAM. Your problem 100% solve.
\015\012Thank You
Try to unplug the cables from the CPU to the monitor.Unplug power cable. Press the power cable for 30 seconds. Do the same to your CPU as well.
\015\012
\015\012Try to replug the cables back and kindly comment with the results. Check for any optical disks in the Optical drive and remove all the USB devices attached to the system.
\015\012
\015\012Kindly comment whether you see any thing on the monitor or you see nothing at all?
\015\012
\015\012If you see nothing I would suggest you to try your system with another monitor. If it works try with a different cable with the monitor and check if the monitor works. Try a different power cable. If none of these works then I would suggest you to call the monitor manufacturer for a replacement.
\015\012
\015\012If the system does not work with another monitor then the issue is with either the Main board or the Graphics card. If the graphics card is external card then you can reseat it which is located in the PCI slot else the issue is with the main board and again the manufacturer needs to contacted.

Hi. My computer is having a problem loading. Apparently, I went to work and then my wife decided that instead of turning it off the correct way just turned it off by hitting the power switch. Now when i try to turn it back on to reload, it powerrs up but the screen is black. Also I am not sure if there is a problem with the motor of my fan, because it is making a weird zzzzzzz noise. The fan is turning so the motor is working. As for the screen, I have held down the power button for 10 to 15 sec
