My dell inspiron i5558 keeps re boot and also beeping 8 times

Hi ,

My dell inspiron i 5558 keeps re-booting and also beeping 8 times continuously. Even the laptop screen is not coming up and I've to having the external monitor for it show the screen.  Let me know what is the fix for it.  

Thanks

The error means the display isn't recognized.

Hold the D key through powerup - you should see a series of alternating screens displayed.  If you don't, the display panel is faulty -- replace it.

If you do see that, the display is OK.  That leaves either the wiring harness that runs between the display panel and mainboard as the next suspect.  Check it for damage, and reseat both ends.  If that does nothing, replace it with a new one.

If that doesn't solve it, the GPU is bad - replace the mainboard.
