Occasionally it can be a result of bad sectors in RAM. Search for microsoft bad sector checker to check whether your RAM is faulty.
It also might be overheating due to placement in a stuffy place like on your lap.

This is a bad video card but unfortunately your video card is not seperate from the motherboard so you have to replace the whole board

The Display panel could be bad/damaged or the main board that controls every thing could be bad---parts for Dell equipment are known to be hard and sometimes impossible to find.

Monitor is displaying colorful verticle lines on 3/4 of the screen. when i hook up to external monitor screen is entirely black

Try to trouble shoot your video card or unattached your video card from your board and clean the bronze part with a pencil eraser and re attach it again and try if it will work if doesn't the problem is in your video card why because you already used two different type of monitors but still the problem is there..

Blue verticle line is displayin

The blue line is most likely the result of your monitor's screen going bad. One thing you can try is disconnecting and re-connecting your video cables to make sure it's tight and has a good connection. This probably won't help, but it's worth a try. You may also want to connect the monitor to another computer to see if the blue line stays, or goes. If the blue line stays with another computer connected, the problem is inside the monitor. If the line goes away, you should replace/repair your computer's video card and/or cable. Otherwise, you need to replace/repair your LG monitor.

Hi. I'm running two monitors off my HP notebook. a Planar and Dell, both 13". The Dell just got vertical lines and is mostly purple. what happened?

Disconnect the monitor from the back of the laptop . Check if the monitor is still purple in the self test feature check . Or there is a vertical line. If the color and the line is not there in the self test. Check the signal cable for any bent or broken pins. If the same is not the issue .
Check the video card drivers for problems.

What can cause a single red line to appear on my laptop LCD screen? It's a small/fine red line appear horizontally (left to right) It's NOT radio interference,back light,broken ribbon cable,or connector...

Thats a generic problem with LCD screens. Its more common in Mobile screens. Sorry, no there is no fix to it other than replacing the LCD itself. Just pray that it shall not grow because as and when the compressed gas from within the LCD will leak the line will be becoming broader and broader. It is caused by damage to the LCD corner Just a hit on side of LCD and a hairline crack for giving way to the encapsulated gas.
