Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

My computer screen flickers with lots of lines running running through the screen

Answers :

Check to see if you have the latest drivers installed for your model. Go to the Dell web site. DO NOT use any drivers from Microsoft updates.
\015\012Do you have any electrical devices near the laptop, like a fan, air conditioner or heater? Try moving it away from them. It may be picking up interference from them.
\015\012 If this does not correct the problem, you may have a failing screen or LCD cable. The cable runs through or near the hinge. Everytime you open and close the lid this cable flexes. Sometimes they wear through and cause this problem.
