Question about Dell Computers & Internet
When my computer boots a load of red dots appear. the laptop appears to boot normally afterwards but then struggles to play video and the task bar appears in a solid blue colour instead of semi transparent. A problem with the video card?? (dell xps 1530)
Your laptop appears to have decent specs. Did you update drivers to you video card, Nvidia,or windows updates to video lately? You could go to Device Manager> Display Adapter>right click >Properties on NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS - and open properties> Driver> Update Driver or roll back driver.
Assumeing there has not been any damage to the monitor. You could always try a system restore or system recovery. If it's a software problem that would clear it, if it's a hardware problem it will move with the restore/recovery most likely.
Let me know how it works.

Can you hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete? If you can, choose the Applications tab, then choose File > New Task (Run). Type "explorer" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER. Something is loading up on your machine and is using up all of your system resources, possible virus or spyware.

You have to press it over and over and over again till it comes out! f that doesnt work then completely turn off the system and before it gets to where you put in yor password (anywhere after you press the power button just nt password place) and then it should pop out!

change the ram memory ...this issues appear when the ram memory is not functional like it should..if you have a way to borrow some just to try ..you will make an ideea
If you have more than one boards in the laptop..remove one by one ..and try to boot with the other/s until you locate the one with problem..
