Dell xps m1530 graphic card problems

Hello,
My Dell XPS M1530 suddenly stopped working over night and I dont know what the exart cause might be. When pressed the power button lights come up, I can hear computer running, CD drive running but nothing on the screen.

I insert a CD in the drive but wouldnt eject when pressed the eject buuton. Connect my laptop to an external LCD monitor and nothing come up.

I am suspecting a graphic card problem but too sure at this stage. please any help or advice is hihghly appreciated.

Many thank you for your time.
With regards
Abraham

  1. I am looking into this problem, however so far it sounds very bad - your video chip on motherboard most likely fried....
    It is a common issue on xps m1530.
  2. I can not find the location of all those lights, well I don't have the actual laptop, so you would have to look around.
