booting up proplem

The story so far...

I buy a network card (Netgear FA311), plug it in, turn on.

Windows XP didn't quite recognise it (I thought it would be simple). It said it had found a half duplex audio something or other. Anyway this problem has become secondary because upon trying the network card in another port, the computers Power On Self Test makes a noise as follows:

one long beep, two short beeps. (What does this normally signify)

This is accompanied by the monitor no longer receiving a signal.

I have tried removing all PCI cards and the AGP graphics card to see if my normal happy one long beep would come back but it didn't.

Please help, I have broadband internet arriving on the 27th March and If my computer is not working by then, I will have to delay it.

Thanks in Advance

If you can't find the jumper, if all else fails, try removing the battery for about 10 seconds. It produces the same result.
