Inspiron 6000 laptop shows led lock codes?

I can power it on fine, but the screen stays black (screen is bad but it stills work) ,  dell start screen nor the windows xp screen never begin but it stays powered on

i hold fn button with power then i get( "off/ flashing /on" ) led lock codes

what do these codes mean?

would it be a waste to try replacing video card?

You can't replace the video card. It's integrated into the motherboard. It wouldn't solve the problem anyway since the screen has failed. Buy a new computer. Changing the screen isn't worth it.

So, do you think its just the screen  and not the motherboard?

i tried plugging in external monitor but nothing happens screen stay black.

Also, i actually removed mb and notice i have a graphic card slot and i could remove and install another.
