The 8 beeps that you are receiving from the computer would indicate an issue with the LCD screen. I would suggest you to connect an external monitor with the system and press the Fn+F1 keys to us the external monitor.

If the external monitor works then i would recommend running the LCD Built-in Diagnostics which the instructions can be found here -
