Make sure the video card is seated well in PCIe x16 slot. Reset a CMOS if this issue continue.

How did you clean your computer? Did you actually take it apart? If you did, you apparently didn't put it back together properly.

✔ Best Answer

Make sure the card is well seated in the PCI slot and enter the PC BIOS setup and disable online VGA and for the beeping, it depend on the kind of number of times its sound.
If constant (Meaning start non-stop), remove the PC RAM and remove dust at the RAM bank/slot and get the RAM well seated, then boot up the PC.

This should resolve the issue.

When you enter the BIOS of the PC there should be an on-board devices installed when you browse through the BIOS menu and options then check and disable that of VGA on-board and restart the PC. More so, check your PC/VGA card documentation to confirm compatibilities.

"i remove the fans and the processor heatsink and etc.. but when i plugged it again.. nothing shows.. my CPU runs but no monitor signal"

1st of all, the CPU & processor are the same thing. Do NOT refer to your computer as a CPU, it only pisses people off.

2nd, since you removed the heatsink, did you completely remove all traces of the old thermal material from the bottom of the heatsink & top of the CPU, then apply a fresh dab of thermal paste before reinstalling the heatsink again? If not, that's your problem. If you have an AMD CPU, use the 'middle dot' method as shown in the following pics:

For the display issue I would want you to see to the area of RAM and CPU is possible you can test with a spear that is working perfectly from another PC and take note of the new components if the same with the one there before.
RAM: Note its PC number
CPU: Note the Pentium/core version and speed required by your PC specification.

More so, make sure the RAM bank and CPU socket are free from dust.

For the case the case of HDD "BSOD", I would like to know what you mean by BSOD? Then we can get you (Kukumart) solution on that.

I choose the PCIe Express.. but then still no luck.. thanks for the reply..:)
