  1. Hi,
    My D531 has failed to boot. I tried doing the flash light diagnostic boot (Fn+Power) and get the following result :
    Right light (Down arrow) is stable.
    Left & middle lights (9 and A) are flashing.
    Dell support said that its a video card issue and that I would need to replace this. Since its integrated, it means replacing the motherboard. My computer isn't under warranty anymore (4 years old) and I'm wondering if I have any alternatives.


    Thanks =)

    "and I'm wondering if I have any alternatives" Yes, you can buy a new laptop... The motherboard can be replaced for around $200-$250
