Sorry about the second post thing.
Let's assume there is nothing wrong, because you did not do anything other than move and unplug the PC.
Let's also assume you have a mainboard with onboard graphics AND an addon video card!
When you plugged it back in, you plugged the monitor cable into the WRONG VGA outlet on the back of the PC, there are two of them, most likely light blue in colour.
Switch the cable over and see the light!
Don't feel silly, this is a common mistake that catches people out.
The beeps are warnings from your mainboard's EPROM chip that the video cable is not sensed.

Is there any pattern to the beeps, like 1 long and 2 short or is it just 1 intermittent beep.
First try and reseat the memory if it came loose it would produce a beeps
Caution before touching anything inside the case ground your self from static electricity by touching a metal object such as the case. Make sure the computer is off and unpluged from the wall outlet
The model number and model name is important for us to get info, look for stickes that may have the model or series.
Here is the premio site
see if it helps you determine witch model you have.

Well, now let's assume something is wrong then lol.
I would do as Doby suggests and unplug - replug you ram and video card very carefully. If you have an AGP video card, they can be just slightly out of position in the slot and you will get the same symptoms you describe, and the same goes for the ram.
IF that doesnt work, then disconnect all peripherals including the hard disc and try again.
