    it part of the system board. but i would connect a monitor to the laptop and see if the video out port has the same errors.a lot of times lines in screen is the screen or inverter board issue. I would pull the hard drive and 1/2 the ram and see if it boots to the bios and or a hirem boot cd without any errors. some laptops use onboard ram for video ram..if the ram stick is lose or bad..can cause issues. if the hard drive is dead it can also pull more power then normal causing mb issues.

    i did everything you said ans then i reinstalled the amd graphics driver in safe mode an suddenly everything started working again i can even boot up xp normally :)
    but i will test this thing more before i give it back. i also have an extra quastion what does the middel fan cool i have no idea
  3. it not a fan it a salad shooter :)
    in pc it be the fan for the cpu or it a exchange fan..to help pull or push air into or out of a laptop.
  4. well now my problem is that i won't turn on
    it only beeps four times maybe the gpu failed but it worked 2 day without a problem
  5. take ac power and battery...flip it over and make sure the ram is seated. if it is and everything looks fine...sounds like the laptop mb died.
  6. everything is fine in there.
    if i may believe youtube and the internet then i would need to bake my gpu to get it working cause it could be (andd i 'm pretty shure) that the solderings are busted
    thanks for the help
  7. if it has nvida video chipset see if it one of the recall laptops of the nvidia class action lawsuit.
  8. it has the mobility radeon x600 in it so no nvidia chipset :(
