Hello,

I have Dell Inspiron N5010 with Intel core i3-380M , 6GB RAM , AMD ATI Mobility Radeon HD..

When I start the laptop it beeps 8 times i it doesn't boot. When i connect a monitor it starts but only in safe mode and even in safe mode there are green artifacts.

I uninstalled the amd radeon driver in device menager and it start in normal mode but there are green artifacts again and when i update the graphic driver it crashes again and starts only in safe mode.

Also i can't switch the graphics from amd to onborad in bios (there is not an option) and in device menager it shows only the amd graphics.

Is it the amd graphics or the cpu problem ? Can i change the cpu on the motherboard and will it work ?

That Dell beep code indicates a failing LCD.

This one is a bit more direct:

And it says:

"8 Beeps: Reseat the LCD cable or replace the LCD screen"

It could be the cable is causing the issue, a break, short can throw most anything out of wack.  Not sure but you may be able to try the monitor after disconnection the cable.
