It may be that the card needs to be reseated (don't do it yourself if you have not done it before).

If it is a software problem, then following procedure may correct it.

You will see advanced boot menu.
Use up/down key on keyboard and select Last Known Good Configuration and hit enter

Hello,

You may need to update the software you use to burn disk. Sometimes you can lose the needed drivers to burn your disk. Once you update the software, reboot and try again.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Dell Vostro 1400 green stripes problem

When this happened to me, I found that I had a bad NVidia chip. Dell replaced my motherboard under warranty even though the warranty had expired, because it is a fairly common problem. It was 1 year ago, so they may have discontinued the free replacement. You need to search the web for the information though, because customer support will not offer without you asking.

How to boot my dell vostro 1400 from usb CD/DVD Drive


Go into setup (F2 during initial boot screen) and change the Boot menu to reflect the CD/DVD drive being the first boot device. THEN place a bootable CD or DVD disk in the drive and reboot your computer. When asked if you want to boot from the disk, click any key immediately.

WE ARE UNBLE TO ACCESS WEB CAM INBUILT IN DELL VOSTRO 1400 FOR WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM.PLS GIVE SOLN.


Is the Web cam driver properly installed?

If no, go to windows start button, point to computer, right click computer, clice manage, click device manager.

If you see an exclamation point or X mark sign you need to re-install the driver for your webcam. If you have a cd-installer, just put the cd on the dvd rom drive then run it. If you dont have an installer cd you can download the driver from the Dell site.
