Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M35X-S149 Notebook ?

I suspect that my video card is going bad. It is

\015 I suspect that my video card is going bad. It is a Graphic card: Intel(R)82852/82855GM/GME for a Satellite M35X-S149. Can I order one and replace it myself?\015

Answers :

To check if the video card is faulty, connect an external monitor to the video port, power up the monitor first and then the laptop.
\015\012The video data should automatically divert to the external monitor, if you see a normal Windows image on the external monitor, then the video card is OK and the fault is the LCD screen and or backlight.
\015\012If you don't get any images then video card is probably faulty and because it is built-in on the motherboard it cannot be replaced or repaired.
\015\012You could replace the motherboard but this might not be cost effective.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 that doesn't seem to post. When I turn it on, the power light comes on, the battery light comes on, I hear the heat sink fan run, but I don't get the Dell splash screen.
