This could be but I suspect that you monitor is needing service.
1. To isolate connect a known good LCD to the pc graphics card ( the ATI RADEON)
If the lines are not visible then yes a new video card is needed.
2. check the video cable to see if you have it well connected to the video port.
this sometime will render intermittent screen and vertical color lines.
3. check video cable for bent pins.
I hope this helps. Have great day!

Red and yellow line across the screen.


From the description the LCD screen will need to be replaced, first! hook a spare monitor to the video output on the back, if picture okay! the problem is the above mentioned, but if both screens show the same symptom it is the video graphics card.

Depending on the main board, 6 beeps usually signify's either a RAM issue (like a bad connection or incompatible ram) or an expansion slot issue so check any other cards you may have installed and make sure that The new RAM stick is compatible with the main board.. The main board model code is printed on the main board. Use it to search for audible fault codes, or go to www.upgrading and repairing computers.com and search for the beep codes for the main board on this site. Also, try reseating all the RAM sticks and expansion cards, especially graphics card..make sure you have not dislodged any data connectors and double check everything..

It sounds like you have a motherboard failing, but before you thing about replacing it or call Dell, run a deep virus scan to make sure you don't have a serious virus infection. Run McAfee, Norton Anti-virus or Kaspersky Anti-virus scan.

XPS 1330 screen turns black


My first guess is that your video card is starting to go bad. My second guess is the processor needs to have its heatsink reseated. If it is under warranty I would have dell repair it so you don't incur the charge of a new video card.

The answer to this will always depend on who you ask! If this helps I am on my 5th Sony VAIO. I bought my first in 1999 (it was a N505). I have always had excellent performance and reliability from my Sony kit even though it sometimes doen't look the best technically on paper. I have several collegues who have dabbled with Dell equipment and have had poor customer service and reliability problems and have switched to either HP or Sony. This is just my observation and experience...
