I am using the VGA to connect to the monitor and the HDMI to the PC because the new card does not have a VGA. I tried plugging it into my tv like you said and the same thing happened. I read online the beep means its something to do with the motherboard BIOS or whateverWhen you say a VGA to HDMI adapter, what is plugged into what?
If you are using an adapter connecting VGA from the PC to HDMI on the monitor, that's the problem. You want to connect the monitor to the GPU's video output, not the motherboard's video outputs. So just use an HDMI cable to connect the GPU to the monitor.
If you are using HDMI from the GPU to VGA on the monitor, try using HDMI from the GPU to HDMI on e.g. a TV to test if that works.
