Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook ?

Screen changes to a small box of colored lines.

\015 My Dell inprion 1000 has been perfect, then one day the screen went blank and in a very short time after, a small box appered in the middle of the screen with about an inch margin around it. In the box there were colored lines running up and down. Now I can start it and it will do just fine for a short while then it happens again. I took it to a reair shop and in a very short time without even starting in up, was told it was the video chip and that it needed a new mortherboard, costing more than it was worth, might as well buy a new machine. I felt that they just didn't want to work on it.\015\012\015\012What do you think?\015
