Question about Dell Inspiron 8500 Notebook
One day when I started my computer, I got the old screen fading to white and the computer not starting. I have had this issue before, and needed a new video card. This time, when I got a new card, and installed it, my computer would not even start at all. When I power up my computer, the 3 lights go on and flash for a bit, then go off after about 15-20 seconds. Any thoughts on what else I can do? At least before the computer and fan would start up, but now I cannot even get this. Thanks
Before you go for a replacement try updating the video drivers
and do try to reinstall the operating system
because replacing the system board will gonna cost you a lot
try reinstalling the operating system but do remember to back up all your personal data
provide me the service tag
i can provide you an appropriate solution

hello, when the screen changes colors or stays in one color it is mostly cause of a video card problem. Does this happens only when overheated, then maybe you can blow the cpu-video card heatsink and use a base with a fan to avoid overheating. If the screen is white all the time then maybe only a 2nd monitor will help understand if this is a problem of the video card or the screen.
