The no signal message pretty well says your monitor is OK. As you never see anything else on the screen then it's pretty well certain you have a hardware fault, possibly RAM as already given. If you are not happy to delve inside then check that the monitor connections are firm, otherwise I'm afraid it will have to take a trip to the repairers.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

99.9% of the time if it beeps it's a memory card issue.

Depending on your motherboard's configuration, if you have multiple sticks and multiple slots then take out the sticks and try them in each slot 1 by 1. If both sticks fail in the same slots, you've got a bum slot. If only 1 stick is having problems in 1 or both slots, and the other one works fine in both, you've got a bad stick.

If you've only got 1 stick and 1 slot, then it's easier - try a different memory stick in the slot and if it works you've got a bad stick. If it doesn't work with a new stick, you need a new motherboard.

Do you ever see anything at all on the screen apart from the no signal message?
