Bars on Screen
I just got a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop with Vista Home Basic on it, not even
a week ago and so far this has happened about 3 times. I get these bars on my
screen and the computer freezes, and then I'm forced to turn the power off to
get it to do anything. This has happened when I closed a program, restarted
the computer, and when I was in the middle of using a program. I have no idea
if this is a Vista problem or a Dell problem.
Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Re: Bars on Screen
If this laptop is new, RETURN IT for warranty repair or replacement. Don't
mess with it. New equipment should not behave in this manner.
