    Default M1330 Display Issue (Vertical Lines on Reboot & Crash & Vertical Lines)

    Today I started having an issue with my M1330 display after having the system for 4-6 months. When I was working (running lovely Vista-Hell) today the screen just went black, then vertical colored lines started filling up the entire black screen and the computer crashed. When I reboot the same thing happens on start-up until the login-screen appears. Any ideas? I haven't updated any drivers since I got the system. Is my video card on its way to the grave?

    Thanks in advance. I will update the video drivers to see if that helps.

    Lenovo S10, Black, 320 GB Hard Drive, Intel Wireless B/G/N. 1.5GB Memory

    Pros: Ultra-portable, Decent netbook screen size, Bright Screen, Sturdy Build, Recommended
    Cons: Loud clicks made by mousepad buttons (worst feature), 3-Cell Battery, Speakers, Right Shift Key, Scrolling to view entire web pages, Atom can't run streaming video well

    Mine went dead past weekend. I got my M1330 in September


    It overheated a few times and then it died.

    Ask Dell for a motherboard replacement. Mine is coming today.

    It might overheat issue. Mine is starting to act up this past week. What is your BIOS version?

    Did you let the laptop to cool down? I could re-boot after the laptop cool down or kept on turning on and off. I don't think I am going to use A07 BIOS.

    I let it cool down, uninstalled the new nvidia drivers I had downloaded from Dell, currently reinstalling the drivers that came on the driver CD they gave me.

    How can I go back to A06 bios? Do you think that's really the issue here?
