Question about Dell Inspiron 1521 Notebook
You could have a faulty video card or video cable or connector.
To determine if you have a faulty video card, connect an external monitor to the video port on the laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. If you don't get a normal Windows image the the video card is faulty, its part of the motherboard and expensive to replace.
If you get a normal Windows image then the video card is OK and the fault is the LCD screen. Reseat the video cable and or the video connector on the motherboard.
If this doesn't fix your problem then it needs to be serviced.
