Inspiron 1564 boots to blank gray screen

All of a sudden today my daughter's Dell Inspiron 1564 running Win7 OS booted to a blank gray screen and two quick beeps. Cannot open in Safe Mode. Nothing seems to work. The laptop is running but no response to anything.

Any suggestions? Anyone experience this before?

  1. hmmmm......is it just the screen??? do you have a monitor or tv you can hook it up through???
  2. I am having this same issue. When I connect an external monitor I DO get a display. All is well aside from the LCD panel on the laptop. I'm guessing I'll need to replace the screen. Does anyone have any alternative suggestions? I'd like to be a little more certain it's not something to do with the graphics chip before I order and new LCD.

    Thanks,
    Drew
