Hi,

I am using dell Dell Inspiron N5010 for the past 4 years, i had a battery backup problem too,

Now i am facing problem with display when i power on,

when i switch on the laptop the power led are glow but there is no display(black screen) and i am getting 8 beep sounds.

I came to know it may be a LCD failure or motherboard or graphic chip set problem. what will be the cost to get it repaired

Update (11/18/2015)

I had given it for repair again, after changing the LCD strip, they said problem with keypad replaced with new one it works again same problem. Now the repair guys were doing experiment and saying the issue with mother board only don't know what to do

mahesh, 8 Beeps is usually a LCD or cable failure. Try this first :

"If the LCD on the system does not show any display, here are some basic steps that you can perform:

Remove the battery and AC Adapter from the laptop and press the power button down for about 10-15 seconds to release flea power.

Power up the system and then press the F12 key during the boot process to get to the Boot Menu, if you are able to see the display.

It may be necessary to repeatedly press the key during the start-up process.

Use the up and down arrow keys to select <Diagnostics> on the menu and press the Enter key.

Or

Hold down the Fn (function) key

Power on the notebook

You should then see the Dell logo screen with the message 'Diagnostic boot selected' in the top corner.

You can then release the keys

While the LCD BIST test runs, the LCD is operating on its own, free of the video controller, which may be discrete (a video card) or on board (on the system board). The test allows you to distinguish an LCD panel problem from a problem with the controller. If the colors are displayed across the screen without a problem, then the issue is not with the LCD." from here. Should you have a broken LCD, I would contact Dell and talk to them about the warranty issues. It is possible that they still honor the original warranty. If not, then the cost of repair will be yours, but at this point you really have nothing to lose. The LCD is available for around $100USD and the mother board for around $150USD. Hope this helps, good luck.

I have the problem and the solution is to cover the grill that allows cooling air to the fan with your hand for a minute. Restart the computer!
