Beep codes depend on what type of motherboard/BIOS you have.

This happened to me when I took my PC apart last week.
The cause of mine was the processor wasn't quite sitting properly. I suggest you remove the processor again (only if you've had it out and put it back in to find no video input), and make sure the pins are all sitting in the holes.

Mine came glued to the bottom of the heat sink. I pulled it off and placed it in the catch, then put the heat sink back on top of it.

This fixed my problem but I accept no responsibility for you breaking anything, so be careful!

You can look up the appropriate codes for the manufacturer at BIOS Central.

That's not glue, it's heatsink compound and needs to be on there for cooling purposes. I wouldn't remove it

I know that, but when I took my heat-sink out, the chip came with it. Due to the size of the heatsink, it's impossible to tell if all the pins are aligned when you put the thing back in. I pulled the chip away from the heat sink, and then put the heatsink back onto it, back onto the heat gel.

I'm aware it's not the best thing to do but when you can't see what's going on underneath you have no other option.
