One long beep usually means there's a video card problem.

Are you sure the card is pushed in all the way? Make sures it firmly in the PCI-E slot and you here the click.

If not, then either your PSU isn't up to the task (which is unlikely by the sounds of it) or there's a bad memory bank on the card.

ok this might sound funny but sure you connected the monitor cable with the graphic card slot not the motherboard video card slot and make sure its properly installed and you didnt damage it with static

...That wouldn't make it beep...

Anyway, I always take static precautions by wearing rubber medical gloves(I'm a CNA... I get em' for free at work).

Good heavens, interpunction and capital letters really aren't a luxury if you want people to read your message.

Did you read the manual if it says anything about switching to an external GPU? Maybe it works through jumpers rather than just a bios setting? There's usually a troubleshooting section in the back of it anyway. If you don't have a hardcopy of the manual they may have one on the website.
