Question about Dell Studio 1537 Notebook
You've done the exact troubleshooting necessary to narrow down your problem to only 1 real possibilty.
Your video card has failed. If the 1537 operates off a "discrete" (separate and detachable) video card, it can be replaced fairly easily. If it's of the sort which is BGA (BAll Grid Array), meaning that it was soldered to the motherboard with high tech robotics (the video card attached on almost microscopic balls of extremely dense high melting point solder), then the only practical solution is to replace the motherboard.
I wish you well,

This is a common problem with many LCD monitors. The
printed circuit board that provides a stable voltage for the monitor to operate
from starts to fail. The PCB can be replaced, when/if they are available, or repaired
in most cases at a much lower cost. for more information on this email me at
