Having problems with your Dell Latitude 120L Notebook ?

My screen was showing lines in it and wouldn't

\015 My screen was showing lines in it, and wouldn't give a clear display without blanking out. I fixed the error but now my computer won't boot properly. It keeps sending me to the "setup" screen and won't get to the login screen. I repeats the setup even when I chose the "start windows normally" prompt. How do I fix this problem?\015

Answers :
