Display problems with 2 yr old Tecra

\015 HI - I have two problems, don't know whether they are related. First, similar to others I sometimes find that the laptop screen gets vertical multicolerd lines; theyusually resolve after 30-60 secs, but come back repeatedly. Other times I have something best described as "northern lights' with the normal display turning into vague colored shapes moving up and down. Usually resolves temporarilty too. Sometimes this is frequent, other times I can go a week or more without it. \015\012\015\012Second, I need to be able to hook up an external monitor, so I purchased a second hand Dell flatscreen. One i got the hang of the Display properties settings it was fine for a few months. Then it started refusing to display even with power on etc. I fixed it once with the Fn toggle settings. The last time it was on it suddenly went blank and haven't been able to get it back.despite trying all of the above in various orders. THe flat screen shows power on, seems to try to 'glow' green/yellowish at the edges but no cigar. It also occasionally flashes something about 'Analog input' and 'video mode' too quickly for me to accurately catch.\015\012\015\012I'd be very grateful for any help with either or both of these -\015\012\015\012KW, glasgow\015\012\015
