Yesterday my computer got messed up. My brother did it. well anyway he plugged the moniter in to the back of the computer and the screen was frozen because it was turned on. he restarted the computer and it said keyboard not attached . he plugged it in and restarted the computer and now it wont show any of the screen when it starts up. And when it starts up it makes 3 beeps.

Off the top this doesn't sound good because static electricity may be involved. Try another monitor, and try another computer on that monitor so you can isolate the problem. Just hooking the monitor to the computer shouldn't normally cause this.

That can be the graphic card not seated properly, or upset by the way the monitor was connected

Can you get anywhere in safe mode

Check at the motherboard manufacturer's site for beep codes

Switch the PC off and also the power switch on the back of the tower, or unplug if there isn't one, leave it a minute and plug in, make sure the monitor is on standby, boot the PC
