When I turn on my system, I get some kind of "Siren" from the PC speaker and I do not get any Video from my monitor.

When powering up check to see that the heatsink fan is working.
Try reseating your card

Is the siren a series of long beeps or more of a wailing sound? If it's a wailing sound then you have a temperature issue as stated by Vera. If it is a series of beeps it is usually video card/memory related.
