Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 PC Notebook

I get a blue screen with flickering white lines

After logging on everything seems to be loading fine. But then five minutes into it the screen goes blue with flickering white lines and dots. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for my graphics card but ran into a problem there too. I'm using windows vista home basic 32 bit system. The graphics card is a ATI Radeon xpress 1150. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

    Here's the thing, I can boot into safemode. The only bad thing is I cant run some services because of safemode. Is there anything I can do myself to solve that invertor problem?

Try connecting an external monitor...this will clear one thing...it's either your screen or your hardware/software. In some cases if works fine if ac adapter is connected and when the notebook is run by a battery it starts flickering so you can even try detaching your battery and using only the adapter. As you have already tried installing the video drivers,I believe it's a hardware problem. Take it to an authorized service center.

It couuld be the invertor is burning out.
If you boot into safe mode and the same thing happens, it is not a software problem or drivers.

Try a roll back of the Graphics driver. Have you done any Graphic Updates? Install the driver from the DELL or Windows Update website. Does it work with a external monitor? When you boot in safe mode your machine uses the Basis graphics driver. Is the monitor OK when you boot in safe mode?

Can you check the function buttons and make sure the primary display is set to show the output on the laptop. Try repairing your OS. If not then re-install the os. As you are saying till the time windows gets loaded, all works fine so it seems the issue isn't really the hardware.

Flickering multi-colored line in the middle of the screen.


You have a failure in the vertical deflection circuit. This could be either a bad vertical chip, the power supply that runs the chip or a bad capacitor in that circuit. This is usually a repair best left to a professional. There is a small possibility that it could be bad solder connections. If genlty tapping the unit temporarily solves the issue you can try and resolder the pins on the vertical chip LA7841 is the part number. There is also a resistor 1 ohm 1 watt. If that resistor is open you can assume the IC is bad
