Can't tell, the display is blank. It takes approximately 20 sec. for the beeps to start. When I did an inspection on the original CPU the thermal paste was totally dried up. I reapplied new compound, cleaned the fins, fan and heat sink removed and reseated memory. Installed hard drive into another laptop to to verify HD.
any update on this issue? I have one with the same exact issue. Nothing at all on the display, and after about 20 seconds, the 7 beep pattern starts. Everything i have found also points to the thermal paste being dried up, too.
