Computer beeping on start up (not loading)

Computer beeping on start up (not loading)

My graphics card has been overheating, so i decided to clean out my pc of dust using a brush and hoover.

After cleaning it won't start up properly and beeps (one long followed by two short) Which i think indicates graphical issues. PC has default system bios

I tried removing parts and putting them back in but it didn't solve it. However when i fully removed the graphics card, the noise persisted but sounded like it normally would during a start up.

My PC is a 5 year old Acer Aspire m7811, graphics card is an AMD Radeon HD 5800 series, intel core i7.

Does it sound like a case of needing a new graphics card and putting it in myself or could there be a deeper issue?

It certainly sounds like a graphics problem. When you removed the car totally, did the machine start? Does it have an onboard graphics capability, does that work?
