Any errors appear on the screen during boot?

Are you sure it not the ram? How many sticks do you have? Can you pull them out and install one then try to boot, etc? If it beeps again swap sticks.....

The Beeps are the results of the computers self test. It found the vid card wrong and gave the beeps.

If the ram was bad, it'd beep different.... when alls good, you get 1 beep.

Do as Osiris said.. reseat the gpu. If it keeps up, borrow a friends card and try it out.

I'd try one first, as it could also be the mobo slot.
