sometimes when I boot up my g51J from a shutdown state, I would get a black screen/blankscreen, and I would hear two beeps.

the explosion sound would come on but screen would still be blank, and then I hear the explosion sound again, and screen wouldd still be blank, and this just repeats over and over.

do you guys think my GPU card need to be replaced?

hard to say on that. i would start by pulling everything out of it except for 1 ram chip. see if it boots through BIOS.

things to try:
reseating the video card (basically removing it and putting it back in)
external monitor
booting with 1 stick of ram
booting with 1 stick of ram and the hard drive (if booting with 1 stick of ram works)

the two beeps problem occured before I upgraded my ram from 4GB to 8GB, so I doubt its the ram.

I might try to re-seat the video card, some of the copper fingers on the card is exposed, so I dont know if the last guy who seat the card didnt do a good job of pushing it all the way into the slot.
