Alienware 17 - 8 beeps -EVGA X Precision

Alienware Forums, Alienware Laptop Forum and Discussion - forum.notebookreview.com
Title says it all. Was hoping @Mr.Fox or @t456 would be able to assist in this situation.

As it stands at the moment I've utterly disassembled the entire rig to bare bones. CMOS taken out and replaced and all that. Nothing has worked, Ive been seeing all these replies about hotswapping a display panel and I have a couple of questions.

How exactly would I hotswap it? Are there seperate cords for power and display? I'm aware of the LVDS cable.

Is this safe to do while the affected system is still powered? Would anything short, or burn up as a result?

I realize many of the thread posts Ive been reading have been from last year, so Im hoping maybe there has been a breakthrough or some light shed on this, otherwise I'll be going to my pc repair joint to see if ,maybe I can work with them about hotswapping and flashing the EDID.

Im downloading @t456 's tool now. I doubt I'll be able to fully comprehend it but hopefully I can follow the directions.

Last question. I have an old Alienware m14x r2 I believe it was. Is it possible for me to disassemble it and use it's display to boot my 17?

Also symptoms are exactly as Mr.Fox stated in earlier threads. Turns on, screen may light up, may not. No POST just straight to 8 beeps. Appreciate the help!
