No picture but noises and fans - help!

I have just turned on my pc from cold - instead of the usual one beep an grinding boot-up, there was one longer beep followed by three short beeps. picture. The LED on the keyboard and the optical mouse have come on, but nothing else. I plugged the monitor into my laptop and it is working fine.

Any ideas??

Id agree with phil thi it should be one long beep and two short beeps.
It happened with one of my computers though so I tried the hard drive in a working computer but it did the same.

I took the case off and replaced the graphics card and blew the dust out.

Now working again. What would I do without this forum??

Many thanks to all.
