Exclamation Dell Latitude d630 Screen Issues

Hello, I have been working on PC`s for a long time, but this is the first time I have seen this issue. The screen is messed up, only working occassionaly and i mean very rarely. This paticular laptop is just being crazy, I have tried removing battery and plug and draining power, on-board video test (with the colors on the screen and they worked fine). As soon as I turn it on, the laptop will have a black screen with 4 vertical lines, then when it boots into the OS (windows xp) it is green (picture posted) any help would be great, I need to return this paticular laptop tomorrow. Please help- thanks Justin

Hooked it up to an external monitor and checked to see if it is viewable then?

There could be something wrong with graphics or the display itself, I would open the screen and check everything and the cables..

thanks for all the replies any help is greatly appericated. The weird thing is if i dont touch it for about 2 days, it works perfectly fine- then out of nowhere it just does that to the screen, so i would be thinking it is overheating? Mabye apply thermal paste or something. Also i was wondering if Dell had recalled this product- since i know they have recalled alot of laptops. Like i said- any help is greatly appericated!
