first 13 beeps and then 8 beeps

I have almost the same problem. When I turn on my laptop, i get 13 beeps but then the display is black. After 13 beeps, there is a cycle of 8 beeps and no change in the display. I tried connecting to an external monitor but there is no response on it as well. What can be the problem? Can you help me on this?
