It could be overheating, a failing inverter, or your LED screen is on it's way out.

try removing the battery. wait 20 minutes, reinsert that battery and power back on.

If that's not it it try replace the inverter. They run around $20 on ebay. They're not universal so search under your make and model.
Then search around youtube on inverter replacement for you laptop.

If it's the LED (screen), it going probably much more expensive. ($400~$800) to replace.

if it;s a new laptop call dell and see if it's covered under warranty.

SOURCE: I dropped my laptop and now the screen is messed up.

Ack. Sounds like you might need to replace your screen (sounds pricey but is cheaper than a new laptop). You can find second hand/refurbished screens or another Aspire with a working screen being sold for parts on Ebay or here

On a side note, if you a have a PC monitor lying around, you can access your files by hooking it up to your laptop via the dvi slot. Granted, it seems a bit ghetto but its a quick fix until you get something more permanent.

I recently broke my iPhone screen and completely shattered a dell laptop a few years ago. You know all those people who are adamant about you buying proper carrying/protective cases? Screw 'em.

SOURCE: dell XPS M1330 laptop doesn't boot just shows colored lines...

Multiple problem issue going on here, with the screen having those lines popping up the way it is, the screen is definitely going to need to be replaced.

Hard drive is a more touchy issue. Not sure if you put a new one or a refurhbished one in the system. If it was a used one or refurbished one, I would suggest putting a new one in the laptop to be sure the hard drive is good and then reinstall the OS and put the drivers back on. That would be my suggestion.

The other thing to try would be to make sure your memory is good. If you have more then one stick, try each stick one at a time and turn on the laptop after inserting just one memory stick into the drive, and then repeat the process with the other and see if the laptop does the same thing each time, if it does then you know the memory is good, if you can get it to boot up into windows with one memory stick but not the other then you know one of the memory sticks is bad.

In fact try the memory swap first and then if that doesn't get you anywhere then try a new hard drive in the laptop.

If that doesn't get you anywhere then you know for sure the motherboard is bad.

Dell Inspiron 1545. When booting to vista the screen goes black. When booting to safe mode the screen works normally.


Please reinstall the Video Driver and check if the same issue persists. If the issue started within last 90 days, you can try the System Restore

I would check your graphics card control panel. You may have (or someone else) set the contrast or some other setting to low or high. If you are using nvidia you can run the optimization wizard.

Color off


You need to have the pins of your convergence IC's checked for ring cracking. That cooling-off period is probably just enough to bring the crack(s) back into contact with each other and as they heat up they separate. It doesn't sound like a IC or component failure, at least not yet. But if it's ring cracked that arcing that happens is placing stress on the Ic's and they could eventually fail... Good Luck Bill

Vertical Lines all over then starts to move lines back and forth


you should first check all the cables inside the set to make sure they all are seated properly, check some other sources like a dvd player and see if it does it on a dvd, after that it is probably a defective main board
