If you have moved it its possiblethat you have nocked something loose. I would check all the wires are plugged in.And if that fails check all your cards are seated properly.

Do you have onboard and a graphics card if so check that the monitor is pluged into the card, I have known people do this as the card will often disable the onboard automatically.

If ram cards are loose and not seated properly, could cause beeping.

The Power supply unit couldn't of died could it ? and the power cables you didn't mix them up from one computer to the other by chance
