Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 5150 Notebook ?

I have a DELL Inspiron 5150. The display was white

\015 I have a DELL laptop Inspiration 5150. The display was white and scrambled, i also checked it on a external monitor with the same exact picture. I replaced the video card (upgraded to a dell 64mb from a 32mb) cpu beeps (1 long 2 short) and no picture when started. Tried the broken card and had same issue. I know the beeps mean a display issue, but how do i get around this?\015

Answers :

If you replaced the Video card, then the next in the process is a motherboard replacement. Since the display is the same on the external as LCD the LCD is unlike the source of a no post. Also try RAM modules individually, see if anything changes.
You can check the status of the indicator on the Computer during POST to find fault.\015\012
\015\012Diagnostic Light Codes During POST:
There are three LEDs on most Dell systems, the flashes and combinations can help fault find.

One LED On, Two LED flashing
ON FLASH FLASH - No memory modules detected

Two LED On One LED flashing
ON FLASH ON - Memory detected but you have a failed module.

1. One LED flashing Two LED On
FLASH ON ON - CPU or processor failure

2. Two LED flashing One LED On
FLASH FLASH On - Graphics card failure

3. Two LED flashing One LED On

4. Two LED flashing One LED Off
FLASH FLASH OFF - Keyboard failure

5. Two LED flashing One LED Off

To troubleshoot a problem with your computer, read the sequence of the status lights in order from left to right Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock
If the computer malfunctions the individual lights display a status of either On , Off , or Flashing .
