It can be 2 things: Or the screen is dying, or the graphics card is dying. Try to start up with an external screen and see if it still blinks. When its still blinking on the external screen, your graphics card is dying, if the external screen shows no issue, then your screen is dying.

Return my dell-inspiron to factoy settings

Boot up with a Dell Recovery CD to format your hard disk and install a fresh copy of Windows on your laptop.
If you do not have a Recovery CD for your model laptop then you can get one from the Dell WEB site.
You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Multiple vertical screens at startup (dell inspiron 4100)

Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop (15 pin VGA connector). If the display appears normal on the external monitor then you have an issue with your laptop's LCD display. If the external monitor also has vertical screens then your video circuit on the laptop has a problem.

I have dell inspiron 1525 laptop , i am recently facing the problem that laptop hinges are shaking 5 to 10 mm front and back . other than this everything hardware and software are fine

the hinges screw into the laptop case. They've probably come loose through normal wear.You'll have to open the laptop case and tighten the hinge mounting screws. View or download the service manual at the following link:

The service manual will show you how to disassemble the laptop so you can get to the hinge mounting screws. Look under "Display"-->"Display Assembly" in the manual.

Resumes windows from hibenate but the screen is blank

Try this: ( windows 7)
Usning an EXTERNAL USB keyboard, reboot the laptop and enter the
"Restart with low resolution display"
Login as normal
Go to Control panel and change resolution to normal settings
Visit the Dell site and download the latest drivers for the graphics card.

If this does not help, try changing the hibernation settings:
Start / Control panel / Power options/ Hibernation tab/ click to clear the "enable hibernation" box

This wont cure the problem, but it will give you a workaround

I have an HP photosmart 8200 series printer. It

Try installing the printer as a LPT Port or USB Port connection. Do not allow it search for any printers.
You can change port access later.
This is how I install my HP4050N Network printer.
ALSO, Is your network connection working properly?

Screen resolution change = black border around small screen

Once you change the resolution to a smaller size and you see the black border, go into the monitor's menu and there should be settings for the Horizontal and Vertical size/position. Adjust those until it looks correct.

I hope this helps :)
