When the laptop is powered up you can hear a quick set of beeps, but nothing appears on the screen

When I power on the laptop I can hear a quick set of 2 or 3 beeps, but I cannot see anthing on the screen.  I have tried several keyboard function keys, but nothing appears on the screen.

You will find your beep sequence in here.....
The number of beeps and the time between each beep will tell you the problem.  Although it is usually tracked down to things like bad memory, video card etc.  Something that would keep the computer from booting up if that part was bad.

When I turn the laptop on there is one long beep followed by two quick beeps.  Does that mean anything to you?  Thanks!
