DELL e5510: suddenly whenever I turn on my laptop it will just flash with lines that looks likes threads of clothes? then after a few seconds the screen is just black and full of colored vertical lines (...

Here is a hardware test you can run to test the video and lcd screen. That came with your laptop

Diagnostics before windows using the F12 Diagnostics
* Reboot and press F12 to enter the Boot Menu
* When the boot device list appears, highlight Diagnostics and press Enter
* The computer begins to run the Pre-boot System Assessment, a series of embedded diagnostics that perform initial testing on your system board, keyboard, hard drive, and display
* If the Pre-boot System Assessment completes successfully, you receive the message Booting Dell Diagnostic Utility Partition
* Press any key to continue
* Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the Diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive
* After the Dell Diagnostics loads and the Main Menu screen appears, click the button for the option you want to run -
Express Test = Performs a quick test of devices. The test typically takes 10 to 20 minutes and requires no interaction on your part
Extended Test = Performs a thorough check of devices. The test typically takes 1 hour or more and requires you to answer questions periodically
Custom Test = Tests a specific device. You can customize the tests to be run
Symptom Tree = Allows you to select tests based on a symptom of the problem you are experiencing
* When you have finished running a test, close the screen to return to the Main Menu screen. To exit the Dell Diagnostics and reboot the computer, close the Main Menu screen

during the test it will BEEP ! it is asking you if colored bars are displayed. if the bars look ok then your screen is fine but if during anytime of this test and you see the distortion you described then its the LCD screen or LCD cable

hope that helps

M15x gaming laptop screen wont come on after sleep mode or reboot. What can I do?

Looking at your last comment, it looks like you got it working??? Just an heads up, in the future, you might not want to put your laptop into sleep/standy mode while performing an update. If you lose power or have to do a hard shutdown you could corrupt the update and your PC might not boot back up.

I just bought a used Dell XPS M170 laptop yesterday and am afraid I got cheated. This morning the monitor went white several times and I had to force shutdowns and then reboot only for the screen to go...

Try connecting an external monitor to the 15 pin VGA (Video Graphics Adapter)and see if you still get a white display. You may have to hold down the function key next to the space bar and depress the key with a picture of a monitor on it to send the video signal to the monitor.
If you still get a white display on external monitor then you have a problem with the laptop's video card.
If the display on the external monitor is fine then you have a problem with the laptop's LCD display panel or I/O cable and they need to be replaced.

Hello, I own a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ230e laptop and it won't boot up. It froze this morning and I had to initiate a hard reboot. Since then I have been given the option to boot up in Safe mode or Normal...

First of all, get your WinXP CD handy, then go to Start>Run and type "sfc /scannow" without the quotes. That'll replace any missing or corrupt system files.
