Have you tried reseting it? Is it EVGA? If so try their support line, I did a week ago and I got my build working.

Beeeeeep-beep-beep (Long beep + 2 shor tbeeps) = videocard issues - Make sure your videocard is properly seated and snapped inside your PCIe slot - with your older ard in, update to the very latest BIOS, then boot back into bios, LOAD SETUP DEFAULT (F5), save, then shut down and clear your CMOS - then try putting back your newer card Make sure your BIOS is set to detect PCIe video card and not PCI - make sure your videocard is getting its supplemental PCIe power by plugging in the respective PCIe powercable to your graphic card if required and that your PSU can handle it
