No Video computer beeps

Irolle asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-09
I have an old dell 2300. The mother board is a Bluford E139765 with onboard video and sound.

When I try to start the system it powers up but instantly beeps one long and two short high pitched beeps. There is no video present. After about 20 seconds it beps twice again but this time the pich is much lower. there is never any video on screen but all leds are lit.
Is the motherboard finished or just the video component of it is gone.
If only video component is bad can I use a stand alone pci videocard to solve the problem
