I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 and its a little over a year old. It started acting funny about a month ago. It will work fine for about 5 minutes then it goes to a screen with different colored bars and i have to restart it again. I bought a new battery thinking that was the problem but that hasnt solved anything. HELP

My dad's Studio 17 has horrible wavy lines all over the screen (really fuzzy). It has been like this since he first got the laptop, but he thought it was interference caused by his numerous ham radio antennas. He recently brought it to my house and it does the same thing so it is not interference. I called Dell (when the warranty was still in effect) and all I got was ''sorry the screen is not covered under the warranty - do you want to buy an upgraded warranty?
Hi,Dell have told you that the screen is not covered by the warranty? All hardware is covered by the warranty except the software. This means that Dell have tried to sell you extended warranty on the laptop when really is WAS covered. ... Dell PC Laptops

I am using a Dell Lattitude D830. I added another monitor (Dell) for home use. First time I hooked it up, it worked fine. Today, I took the laptop with me, so unplugged the monitor. Now, I cannot get the monitor to come back up. I have gone into the control panel and changed the monitors, but it still won't work. The monitor works, but I cannot get the laptop screen to show up. My wireless mouse won't work either now. I need the monitor badly, as my DH cann ot see the small screen on the laptop.
