Windows 7: Laptop Screen Flash, 6 beeps followed by 5 beeps

Laptop Screen Flash, 6 beeps followed by 5 beeps

Hi, i was recently playing games on my laptop and accidentally pressed the windows button and the computer got stuck and failed. I then emergency restarted my laptop and started watching youtube on it. (laptop was a bit hot when i checked under) and it failed again this time, so i restarted my laptop and tried the diagnostic test and was shown black and white lines of sort. When the diagnostic ran and the screen went black, my caps lock key kept beeping for some reason. I then restarted my laptop and then my laptop would not start and would beep 6 times, then 5 times (video card failure, rct power failure)

I then proceeded to hold the d button and turn on my laptop (before that i disconnected everything and held the power button for 30 seconds to drain static power) and the color bars were showing. I am completely lost on what happened to my laptop and urgently need it for the next 3 days (repair shops here are horrible and charge a lot)

Any advice? i was thinking of reseating my lcd cable after googling a bit, is that perhaps a good idea?

I found the most bizzare fix in the world. Somewhere while googling i found someone with the same problem without the 5 beeps in the end and he replied later that he had blocked the fans of the laptop and let it heat it up (15 minutes on top of blankets since vents are under battery) and then restarted it and it worked fine. I finally gave up and tried that and its working, im typing from the laptop right now!.
