Question about Dell XPS M1330 Notebook
I have a refurbished Dell XPS M1330 laptop that has been acting up I changed the hard drive thinking that maybe the hard drive was fried but after a couple of days of it working again in went back to what it had done before. When it started acting up again i would turn it on and it would start to boot and bring up the safe mode options saying that i hadn't shut down my computer properly. Every time i tried using safe mode it would try and reboot again and send me back the the safe mode options. Now it doesn't even do that i can turn it on the light turns on but then its a black screen and a single green line starts to appear followed but several other multi-colored lines then they all fade to a solid white and then start fading in as purple and pink lines then green and the screen fades to black again. Is there anything i could do to fix this?
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.
