how do I know if I have a bad videocard on a Dell XPS 1640?

Hello all. I have a Dell XPS-1640 that the keyboard turns on during an initial boot and then immediately turns off. There are no logo displays at all~~BSOD!

My question is..does this sound like a videocard issue?

Many thanks!

  1. Sounds like RAM problems. Take the two RAM sticks out, and switch their places.
  2. I just switched the memory and turned the laptop back on and all I got was the keyboard lit up. Nothing came on the display and it shut itself backdown within 5 seconds.

    I just switched the memory and turned the laptop back on and all I got was the keyboard lit up. Nothing came on the display and it shut itself backdown within 5 seconds. This is similar to before I switched them.

    Thanks
