I recently replaced the base (including everything but the screen and hard drive) of my Dell Inspirion E1505. It worked fine for two days, besides getting hot really fast. But then it started having screen problems. It would just shut off. No warning. and the computer itself would become unresponsive. At first, I thought it was because I hadn't installed the software for the "new" Graphics card. (The "New" one was replacing one with an integrated video card) an AMD Mobility (cant remember specifics.) Downloaded and installed the hardware profile and after that, the screen would not stay on AT all. Sometimes it would stay on if I removed the hard drive, but that was hit and miss. Even when I plugged it into an external monitor, nothing would show up at all. I know it isn't the screen itself because I tested it on another laptop and it worked just fine.
Maybe this is what I get for buying from some random person on Ebay? I asked the person about it and they never responded.
Edit: Wrong Card brand...
