What does 8 beeps plus working screen mean?

My Dell Inspiron 17R 5737 laptop keeps beeping 8 times at me over and over. It used to be with a solid black screen, but lately all it has is a green screen, while still beeping 8 times.

According to the Dell Inspiron 5737 Troubleshooting Guide 8 beeps upon boots means LCD failure. This means that the motherboard is unable to correctly connect to the screen. It appears that you have already diagnosed this yourself. The easiest way to troubleshoot this would be to contact Dell if you are still under warranty, or follow the steps in Dell's repair manual to see of the cable that is connected to the display is damaged Dell Repair Guide/Owners Manual.
