Mistake

i was using the computer when the battery went to 0% and the computer shut off...

i got the chrger plugged it in, powered it on , the power came on, no display, and all i herd was 1 long beep followed by two short ones...

i hav researched this problem and i found tht its happning because of video error "This is usually caused by a problem with the video card, or the memory on the video card. It can also be a motherboard issue."

my laptop is not under warrenty, it was bought on 30th june last yer..

what would u suggest i do?

I suggest you bring it in for repairs. Temporarily without opening the laptop up and voiding warranty, remove the battery and unplug AC adapter. Press and hold power ON button for 30 secs. Attach the battery and plug in AC. Power ON as normal. If this does not work, remove the battery and unplug AC then reseat RAM.
