Re: Hi.I have a dell xps m1330. after use for an hour,...
Put a cooling pad under the laptop, make sure there is plenty of air movemend by the fans, example. dont sit the laptop on your bed or a pillow or anything that blocks air movement. also, they will tend to get hot if you put a lot of high usage on them as in gaming and such. if you have tried all these and it gets so hot that it locks up or is burning, you, then call Dell it could be an internal issue.

It can be either the display is dead or it is a loose connection. If you are still covered by warranty then I would suggest you to contact the dell technical support. They will replace the part for you.
However if you don't have a warranty then you can buy this part from dell online store (the display) and you can fix it on your own - http://ahwee.com/how-to-disassemble-laptop-dell-xps-m1330 follow the instructions here to dismantle your laptop and refix it with the new parts. If you find any troubles doing so; please let me know; I will help you further.
Well first I recommend if you do not already know how to do this, please do not. Second the cathode lights are normally 2 cathode lights, usually 1 on the top and 1 on the side, these are inside the outside plastics and set right up next to the screen, you will have to completely take apart the screen, will take an hour or so.
if you bought this from dell, use the restore disks that came with it starting with disk one. you wont be able to save your files bt at least you will have a usable computer. i have an XPS studio 16 and had to do the same thing.
