Not to scare you, but I've seen G41 machines where everything pointed to the GPU problem, and the issue ended up being the planar itself, so don't spend too much money on the replacement GPU.

I have the same beep issue with my G41. But it happens when I restart. It just beeps and that's it. I have to shut it down from the startup button and then start it again. Only then it sturts up to windows. Also vertical lines started to appear on my LCD screen 7 of them already, and of different colors. As I have learned the LCD is starting to go out. However does that have anything to do with the beeps, or is there any connection between the two and the troubled startup?
On the other hand, because of the above issue, I have bought another G41 from eBay. It worked fine until I did a system update.
After system update, the computer charges up, I can hear the Windows startup music, but I cannot see anythng. The LCD has backlight, but nothing else. So now I have two computers, and none of them work properly. Is it just a display issue that I could fix, from BIOS (couldn't so far...) or from the Rescue and Recovery, or somethng went out in the computer? Also I have tried to connect an external display to the computer, but I get the same backlight, nothing else.
Can anyone help me out with the above problems? At least to fix one of the computers.
