Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 PC Notebook ?

I get a blue screen with flickering white lines

\015 After logging on everything seems to be loading fine. But then five minutes into it the screen goes blue with flickering white lines and dots. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for my graphics card but ran into a problem there too. I'm using windows vista home basic 32 bit system. The graphics card is a ATI Radeon xpress 1150. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?\015

Answers :

Try connecting an external monitor...this will clear one thing...it's either your screen or your hardware/software.\015\012In some cases if works fine if ac adapter is connected and when the notebook is run by a battery it starts flickering so you can even try detaching your battery and using only the adapter.\015\012As you have already tried installing the video drivers,I believe it's a hardware problem.\015\012Take it to an authorized service center.
It couuld be the invertor is burning out.
\015\012If you boot into safe mode and the same thing happens, it is not a software problem or drivers.
