Re: Dell xps 2010m display corruption and then lock up -...
Lets see what card is in there, it might be as simple as a driver or the refresh rate may be set to high. See what the refresh rate is set to, step it down to 60 and lets see what happens. I am Gymowner for the sake of communicating because we aren't in a live chat, I may lose you, so at least lets be sure we both can find each other Kevin, ok try tyat first, then get the latest driver for your card. My wife and I are both gamers, so I have had this problem myself, and I want to eliminate the card first

To determine if your hard drive is bad or good, run the Dell diagnostics. Here is a link for the owner's manual of your model: ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_laptop/esuprt_xps_laptop/xps-m1210_owner%27s%20manual_en-us.pdf
The backlight behind the display may be starting to fail, hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if okay! the problem is in the the laptop display, Now if both show the same symptoms, it is the Video Graphics Card normally built into the motherboard.
You do not say which operating system you are using.
A blue screen can have many causes, so you need to undertake an elimination process to identify the cause.
Most importantly, do not repeatedly keep trying to boot if blue screen keeps appearing, as this could lead to hasrdware failure. It is important to identify and fix the fault as soon as possible.
If you read the full error message, there will usually be an indication of the likely cause of the crash as well as some suggested remedies.
Typical causes are:
Conflict with newly installed software Driver conflict or corruption Malware infection Insufficient Hard Drive space Operating system corruption Hard Drive fault Overheating Memory corruption Graphics card fault
Each of these will have a different remedy.
Start by studying the error message in more detail, try the suggested remedy options, then post again with more specific information, if necessary.
The inverter handles how bright the display is because it takes the DC power from the adapter and converts it to high voltage AC power for the backlight. When the inverter starts to and finally fails, the screen goes dark. Your problem is most likely an inverter failure.
Dell ships their system with factory installed software and recovery discs.if you formatted using a different , the pre installed recovery are gone. so CALL DELL customer service and have them ship you out a recovery disc its for free, i guess if your still under warranty.
It seems to be the screen of the system has gone bad , but in case if you see DELL on start of the system, it can be OS which is corrupted but the way you are telling that you can see it on external display it it the Monitor.
