Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 9100 Notebook ?

Laptop Screen Has flickering Lines

\015 I just bought a new Dell studio 17 with an ATI mobility Radeon 3650 HD graphics card. After I installed Itunes and my universityie's required antivirus ( I had to uninstall MacAfee) I Got these weird white lines that pulse every so often about 1/4 of the way down my computer screen. It is really annoying, can someone please help?\015

Answers :

99% of the time, thats a short in the VGA LCD cable inside the unit. Contact Dell for service if you still have warranty. otherwise, you will need to repair it yourself. Try re-seating the video cable or ordering ONLY the video cable, and replace that first. You will have to take the unit apart to make the repairs. If you have warranty, PLEASE call dell and get the parts replaced. Trying it yourself VOIDS the warranty, so make SURE you dont have a warranty before making it yourself.
