I have a Gateway P-173XL FX laptop purchased a little over a year ago (warranty expired). When I turn it on I hear 3 beeps (1 long one followed by 2 short ones) and the display monitor will not turn on. I believe it is booting up fine because all the indicator lights and system noises are normal, and 1-2 minutes after powering up I hear the Windows startup theme like normal. I have a VGA port but an external monitor did not work, nor did reseeding the memory or draining the power. I have not recently installed any peripherals and aside from an external hard drive the system specs are unchanged. I think it's a video card problem, but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated.

Gateway P-173XL FX
Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 / 2.4 GHz
4GB (2GB x 2) DDR2 SDRAM - 667.0 MHz
2 x 200GB SATA in RAID 0
NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTS GDDR3 SDRAM - 512.0 MB
