Hello everyone! I have an old L701X that my family used to use until it "broke." I recently dug it out of my closet and tried troubleshooting it. Upon power on, it would give me 8 beeps. This would happen when the laptop had the internal display plugged in, internal display NOT plugged in, and when it had an external monitor plugged into it. What was weird, was that the display would allow me to run the color test where you hold D before powering it on and it runs that display test, and it passed. I will say, the internal display cable was a bit mashed, but everything seemed to be fine. The reason I bring up the display cable being mashed is because when testing a while ago, I accidentally ripped it because it was already in a weakened state, meaning I cannot use the internal display whatsoever. I still get 8 beeps, but I find this odd because wouldn't the laptop output to an external display if the internal one didn't work? My main question is could this issue be a sign that the GPU has failed? I also wonder if the MOBO is just done. I don't know I'm just thinking out loud right now. All help would be appreciated though, Thanks!
