Dell Inspiron 1501 Power Button won't turn on ....

I would remove the hinge / power button cover again and make sure the little pip that presses the button down it not broken, also check the little circuit board with the switch on to make sure it's not disconnected.
Try switching on with the cover removed.

When I am playing a game the screen will suddenly go to black and white stripes and the only way to fix it is to restart the computer. It happens about once an hour

the main be a loose ribbon connector at the board. thdis will require a tech to look at it, Usually white stripes and going black on laptops is loose connectors.

My video on dell inspiron 1501 flashes on and off on the screen, Hooked up external monitor and it works fine. What do I need to look at

Try reseating the video cable and ensure the cable is chafed where is passes thru the hinge assembly. If no change, then the LCD will likely need replacement
