    Have you tried connecting the monitor port to an external monitor. Try this before doing anything - If it works than your LCD is bad - if it does not work then the video card is probably bad.

The moment you power on your system strat tapping F2 key
you will get a system setup screen if you dont get it as suggested before connect an extrnel monitor then press and hold Fn key and while holding it down press F8 it will toggle the display
if you get a video on external monitor LCD needs to be replaced
if you don't then its either systemboard(if video card is integrated)
or the video card
provide me your system's service tag located at the bottom pannel of your system, turn it upside down you will find a bar coded sticker which has a 7 digit alphanumeric number
i will be able to provide the best resolution

Dell Inspiron 8500 doesnt continue boot up


is the crackling noise constant?
if so, your hard drive is lockup on the bootup. you have to get a new hard drive.
or you can try to reformat the hard drive, but I don't think that will help.

Sounds like the incorrect RAM (SUPPORTS PC2100 AND PC2700 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs) for that laptop. Also try re-seating the RAM in the socket and that is not installed backwards (hard to do , but I've seen it)
