Hello,

I have a strange problem with my Dell Inspiron 1121 Laptop. It starts up normally and then after a few minutes the display goes black. Fans works and all lights are showing but no display. I tried connecting to external monitor , no display . After 10 minutes , it starts giving 7 beeps which indicates a processor problem. I have changed the thermal paste and cleaned the fan .
PS : It has an AMD processor.

See my text below from one of the forum:

More than likely it is the motherboard(May be the Video chip that built on the motherboard) that's died or has problems. CPU's rarely fail unless we overvolt them...
