Try to plugged in external monitor to your computer. If you did not experienced this problem using the external monitor then this is not a mainboard issue. This could be an LCD issue. You need to call the manufacturers tech support department and have your computer repaired. Same goes also if you experienced same problem using external monitor. You still need to call dell tech support department for mainboard replacement.

The LCD is definitely shattered, looks like pressure was applied from the back of the screen (Pressed on, laid on etc) and the LCD will need to be replaced.

I have a red line in the same notebook, dell insp 1501


It's a faulty screen.
Here is how to remove old screen.
Then order new screen by DELL PART NUMBER (green), which is on the back of the screen and looks something like that:

If you will replace screen with any other (not with dell part number), then you risking, that screen will be dark and adjustment of brightness will not work.

2-3 inch swath of green from top to bottom of screen, in center


Might be a problem with your memory,your video driver,or the screens inverter board.
If you have more than 1 bank of memory,try removing one bank at a time and see if this corrects the problem. If so ,replace the bank that was removed when your screen works properly.
Also ,try updating the driver through the "Windows Update" service. If neither of those works, you may have a faulty inverter board.

Dell Inspiron 2200 monitor issue


Could be that the monitor is going out, but it sounds more like a connector has worked loose or corroded and isn't making a good contact. Check and clean the screen connection, screen to inverter, and screen to motherboard.

Half of screen is not viewable


Well the issue is usally with the Video driver.Try reinstalling it from the support.dell.com and that should resolve the issue.Also you can try connectring a external moniter and see if you get the proper display on that or not.Incase you do than issue is with the screen and incase its the same on that as well than its an issue with the video card.You can get either of the two replaced accordingly.
