Probably a graphics chip problem, not easy to fix on a laptop, even a loose cable to the screen needs someone who knows what they are doing to fix it.

Remove and refit the memory modules and retry.

Memodules are below flap on underside of machine and relatively easy to remove and refit.

Do you happen to know what bios it is ie AMI, Phoenix, Award? as then it would be very easy to find out what those 3 beeps are and hopefully pin point the problem.

I do dont know how many sticks of ram your machine has it in but if it has more than 1 it might be worth trying it with only one in and pray that is is a RAM failure if not will probably be quite costly to fix
