Have you had any video drivers updated lately? Do you see anything in the boot screen (BIOS, product logo, etc)?

It could be just the monitor is bad - but a single beep usually is a memory fault, but it depends on the manufacturer. so the best would be to talk to a repair shop...

A single beep isnt always a fault... my computer beeps on power up and has no problem.

But as Mauricio has mentioned, do you get anything on screen at all ? Even a "No signal" ?

Does the HDD light continue flickering after the beep ? If it is, then id say the screen is the fault as the HDD flickering would indicate that the computer itself isnt having problems and is continuing to load Windows etc.
