New build. One beep and then three short, rapid beeps on start up.

I put together my rig yesterday, but when I try to connect it to a monitor, the monitor says no signal. Also when I start it up, it does the beeping described in the title. I tried looking at some stuff online but I can't figure out what the beeping means. I have tried moving my memory to different slots, moving the CMOS jumper back and forth, and re-installing my video card, all to no avail. When I turn on my computer, all of the fans (CPU, Video Card, PCU, and case) go on and my case light goes on as well. I have also made sure that my motherboard is properly in place and that all of the holes are filled with standoffs and screwed in. Here is my build:



If anyone even has the slightest idea of what's wrong, I'm all ears. From what I have gathered from other websites, it may be a graphics card issue.

As of today I have cleaned the golden finger of the graphics card and the slot and it is still doing the same thing. I also took out the graphics card completely and the same beeping noises were made on start up.

    I don't think the beep has anything to do with the gpu, It's just an error, maybe with the gpu maybe something else, you should be able to find what it means online do.

    According to my mother board's troubleshooting site, it say that 1 long beep and 3 short beeps is GPU related. On that site you linked it is Video EGA circuitry problem. And yes, this is my first time.
