You are correct, this does refer to a video problem. The video card controller is part of the motherboard and cannot be repaired.
There is a slight chance that the RAM is faulty or not making proper electrical connection and this is causing the video to fail because it uses part of the RAM (memory) for video memory.
Reseat the RAM (remove and reinsert a few times) then reboot your laptop.
Best of luck.

My computer always makes beeps sounds when i boot it up

Hi Daniel,

every computer has certain beep codes that indicate problems during the boot process. These codes are different from each manufacturer. You didn't mention which computer you are having, so I can't send you a solution. The best way is to search i.e. "HP beep codes" or "Dell9150 beep codes".

Let me know if you have any question.
Good luck!

Laptop Beeps on start up 1 long and two short beeps

You've checked the memory board/card, but have you tried using another memory card? The 1 long followed by 2 short beeps indicates that there's a problem with the memory card. Try to remove the memory card, then wipe the gold traces with a dry cloth and put it back in.

If you try replacing the memory card but you get the same problem, then proceed with the video card.

HP Pavillion doesn't turn on

That indicates a video problem. You will probably have to replace the motherboard.

One long beep, two shorter beeps - HP laptop will not start up

I had the same problem...
The solution is only temporary and you will have to reapply it after around 5 to 6 boots cuz it'll just happen again (the beep syndrome).

Just heat up the laptop by turning it on and covering its air vents with your hands.

Then after you hear the beeps turn it off.
Turn the laptop on again and immediately turn it over upside down with the lid closed ofcoarse (simply put it on its back).Hopefully you wont hear the beeps and when you open up the laptop lcd...voila display.
