Having problems with your Dell Latitude D505 Notebook ?

Screen displays colored horizontal lines

\015 My lcd screen has pink and/or green horizontal lines, with other color distortion in images. long ago dell customer support solved the problem by having me remove the bezel and tweak something under it -- can't find this solution on dell's support pages. i'm pretty sure it didn't require a screwdriver, and didn't require any technical knowledge on my part. does anyone know what this simple solution might have been. also the shift key doesn't work, but that's another issue. many thanks.\015
