    Hi guys,

    i just want to make sure before i throw it away...

    i have this laptop and when i plug the power in there is a red light on the front left panel
    next to the power light (which lights up green)

    The screen is black and it makes one long beep followed by 2 short ones.

    i have googled for the manual but cant find anything
    they want to sell it to me for 2 dollars

    i googled beep codes...and i think its the video card (nvidea card in this case)

    is there anything that can be done...can i not reset anything or unplug battery or am i wasting my time?

    does anybody know if i can get a new mboard ...or is it a waste of time?
    i live in ireland

    your input please

    for one thing do not throw it away - at the very least sell it on ebay as a "faulty laptop ideal for repair or spares" you might be suprised what you get for it as many people buy faulty units for their individual components.
