Inspiron 1521 green screen problem

I first noticed the problem with i accidently bumped the screen passing by it and everything on the screen with the color black turned to this neon green color. If i flipped the screen down and up a few times it eventually went back to normal. Now every once in a while it does it on its own and i dont know how to fix it, and moving the screen down doesn't work.

Have a black screen on dell 1521

try taking the battery out, pull out the power cord, and push and hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds. Then put everything back and try to start normally. If the problem still continues, try turning it off and pulling the memory out of the laptop and then reseat it...sometimes this may cause the problem but without any sorts of beeping or display occurring, it's very hard to help you on this one. I'm wishing you the best though. :-)

The monitor on my Dell Inspiron 1521 has lots of colored lines on it. Can this be fixed?

Generally and indication of a Failing LCD.

Press D plus the Power button to initiate the LCD test, if the lines still appear, the LCD is bad and need replacement. If the LCD passes the test without the lines, the video card is the issue and will mean a motherboard replacement

Inspiron 1521 green screen problem

Either the lcd cable is loose on the inverter board, the lcd cable is going bad, or the inverter is going bad. Usually this can be fixed by removing the power button bezel and making sure all the cables are seated properly on their connection. Removing the power button bezel varies from laptop to laptop, sometimes there are screws on the bottom of the laptop that you need to remove and sometimes there are not, it just snaps into place.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
