Hello,
My computer froze, and I attempted to restart it. When It come back on, the moniter did not come on, and the computer started a beeping sound, much like a siren. Thanks, Ken

Take the memory out and switch your pc on, it beeps and stops, then board looking ok as it detects no memory found, then add a stick at a time until you find the dodgy stick.

FYI, 1 long and 3 short beeps is video card.

the siren sound is often a graphics card telling you it isn't getting enough power.

make sure that your GPU is correctly seated, and that its PCIe connectors are in (if it requires them)

this seems most likely given what you have described.
