Does the computer sound any beeps upon power up?

Do the various status lights on the keyboard blink during the power up cycle?

Does the monitor show the no signal error for the whole time time from when the computer is first turned on?

No the computer is silent as it powers up and the keyboard doesn't light up.
The monitor goes into hibernation after it flashes the message for a minute.

the fan in the computer tower is louder
It sounds like it may be a motherboard or a partial power supply failure. With the computer turned off, you could open up the case and make sure all the cables going to the motherboard are securely attached.

Did you mean the spectre E205W? If so, you have 2 HDMI ports. You may be able to use the DisplayPort to HDMI if the monitor is set to VGA.
