A while ago, my parents laptop (Compaq Presario R3000) went into (winxp) standby mode and since then never displayed anything on screen again (black screen). When I turn it on, once a while it will play one long beep, then 2 short beeps, which means there's an error with the video card. I can hear the Windows startup sound after that, but still can see nothing. I've tried to plug in a monitor and use the special screen hotkey (FN+F4) to change from internal/external, but it doesn't work either. So it's definitely the video card or some problem with the bios and that card maybe.
I was wondering if anyone ever had this sort of problem and if there is a way to create a cd/dvd with linux that would boot without requiring any input, and start sshd so that I could then ssh in from another computer?
Thanks for your help!
