That beeping sounds like the fan speed setting in the BIOS, either that or the RAM.

 

Do any errors show up on the screen when you turn it on?

I think you would be better served if you started by explaining your problem (pc won't boot, etc) and any events leading up to that problem (hardware upgrade, software upgrade, etc). Once explained, those beeps might make more sense.

I just decided to make a new pc and after putting in all the parts, I turn it on. The computer turns on but the monitor only says "No signal. Monitor going to sleep" while making those beep noises

Well now, that information surely helps. Now, my next set of questions:

 

Where do you have the monitor plugged into?

The motherboard or a PCI-e card?

(full specs would help)

Do the graphics settings in your BIOS match the hardware configuration being used?

Well, try plugging it into your GPU card. That should fix it.

These are what your motherboard connections look like:

One of these connection methods (either via the GPU or mobo) should give you (at least) a BIOS splash screen (and access to the BIOS). However, right now, I am out of time for today so good luck!

That's  very attentive to pick up those sounds.  The first beeps sound like the hard drive trying to find the clock track, the beeps are created by the servo motor moving the heads across the platter, attempting to find the clock track.  Failing to find that, would cause beeps, as heard at the end.  Drive testing would be easy, just unplug the power to the drive.  The three beeps could be a fault, different  from mfgr to mfgr, so check the manual.

It very well could be that, try only one stick of ram in each slot to test that theory.

 

Sorry for the late reply, friend had a data breach and i was helping find the source.
