I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 running Windows XP MediaDirect. Two days ago, while running a video game the display froze with vertical lines all through it. I had to crash the laptop. When I restarted it, it briefly showed a display of the start up windows screen severly broken up with more vertical lines then it went to a black screen. I attempted to boot in safe mode but I get nothing but a black screen. I also attempted to run the video diagnostics, but again got nothing but the black screen. I attempted to connect it to a standard monitor with the same result: vertical lines on the start up windows screen. Then the screen showed faint symbols at the top left of the screen, then attempted to reboot.
