Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 9400 Notebook ?

Running with AC power, my Dell Inspiron 9400 would randomly show the Blue screen. After a few times of rebooting, I could see the Windows logo with horizontal white lines about 1 " long. Eventually the screen went black. Now when I attempt a reboot or power up all I get is a black screen. The laptop is about 4 years old and has been treated well. Is it worth repairing? Thanks bob
