Long LOUD never ending beep on start up, no display, help?

So i've had no problem with my computer until random BDODS Freezes, screen glitches and last but not least Windows not booting. So i decided after a couple days to take out my Video card (Nvidia) and clean it and all of that and as i was taking it out it got jammed but eventually i got it out by just pulling it out hard (Sounds bad but i couldn't push it back because it was like jammed) Anyways i examined it and nothing appeared damaged but as i was doing it my motherboard appeared to be flexing anyways so i cleaned it put it back in and booted it up and next thing i know a huge never ending beep and an LED was red anyways the led turned off and the beeping kept going on for another 1 minute so i just pulled the plug and called it quitsys and could see if one of you guys could help, i'm sure i put the card in the right because i out it in the same exact way.

Well, you have either broke the GPU or the motherboard with the rough handling. You do know there is a release latch on all video cards? I think the long tone is saying "I don't have a video card installed".
Just touching delicate parts especially the gold connector pins, can also cause damage and not be visible.

Have you tried taking out your ram and resiting them? What I would do is try cleaning the slots were the memory go and resit them since you already resit your video card. Also make sure all your connections are properly plugged in and not loose. If problems persist let us know, i'm sure someone here on the forums can give you some more ideas.

Thanks for all the replies, i'm going to go ahead and say it's the motherboard but i will try resitting the ram, although i didn't mess with the ram but yeah if the problem keeps happening i'll pay 45$ to get a diagnostics fee.

Is this a single beep repeating or a single tone that stays on? Remove the video card all together then try to boot. If you still get the continuous beep, the motherboard is toast and quite possibly the CPU if a power circuit was broken. If you get the "no video" beeps (as per your BIOS manual) then it's the video card or a damaged slot (motherboard). Move the card to a different slot and see if it boots or completes the POST. If it completes the POST, then it's the slot (motherboard).

Hers something that might point you in the right direction and I think it looks like Britton is right.

What do the POST beeps from my Motherboard mean and how can I hear them?

If you try to boot with the GPU removed it will cause the long beep.
