(it would, maybe still does, flash at the top of your screen)
3 short beeps usually means a memory failure on the first 64k of ram...which is bad.
Any chance you put the battary in backwards?

I do nto know who make my BIOS, and in light of the above about the monitor I do not know how to determine that either.

The three beeps is almost certainly memory related...looked around, and three beeps applies only to ami...IF THEY ARE THREE SHORT BEEPS
So, determineif that is the case.
If it is...remove the plug from the computer to wall, remove the battary again (ground yourself).. Wait 10 minutes.
Ground self. Insert battery. power on.
The other possibility is that a long and two shorts, which is a videocard failure...(which rings true with what you stated.

The monitor still says "self test Your monitor is working..."
Any further suggestions?

How much memory do you have?
If you have more than one stick, remove one try booting, then remove the other and insert the first. Identify the first ram slot (maybe a numb er on the moard by the slot).
There must be memory in bank1 (or bank0 if it is labeled so).
Ground yourself to discharge static electricity)

when you get a new system, put the old harddrive in as a slave.
