Disconnect any peripherals and take off the battery, plug in the mains and turn on, see what happens then.

If you can, take out the memory and re-seat it. Cheers.

It depends on the BIOS (AMI, Award, Phoenix, etc) but one long, two short beeps usually indicates video card failure.

If you can connect it to a desktop pc monitor and switch the laptop on and see if it opens windows up where you can see it on the monitor

Thanks for all your replies.Reseated ram but problem still there. Been informed the NVIDIA graphics chip needs repairing / reballing. A common fault on my Samsung R700. Been quoted 80 - 110 for reballing. Oh well will have to live on beans for the next month lol.......
