Laptop Inspiron 3541 screen won't come on and beeps 8 times repeatedly

I've recently had some issues with my laptop after having it for awhile when I power it on the system works fine but the screen doesn't come on and it starts beeping in a pattern of 8 times repeatedly I have hooked it up to an external screen and it worked fine but still keep beeping 8 times repeatedly until it booted into windows I have tried using the power and hold d and colors come on the screen but then after a bit the colors went off the screen and it started beeping again I have not replaced the screen the screen or the cable yet I'm not sure what to do so can someone tell me something I should try to do?

It sounds like the panel itself is OK - meaning either the video cable is bad or not connected, or the mainboard is bad.
