Try taking out your ram and reseating it. Does it have onboard graphics, and if so have you tried the onboard connection?

Did u plug the video card into a PCI or PCIe slot? is the new video card PCIe 2.0/2.1

edit>also, how much power does the new card require and how much power your PSU is putting out.

and what the brand of your cards???
ati radeon is only a chipset brand and it refers only to vga type/model...

and as Bruce say...according to the beep its your VGA has fail...
and please try to unplug the cards and plug it again...
or try it at another computer...to make sure its your VGA cards has fail not anything else...
