while am operating normally on my xps some blue lines start 2 be seen in the middile of the screen then goes orange then boom screen goes black

 

i tried closing the lid and opening it

The first thing to do is run a full system diagnostic (F12 @ startup) to check for any hardware faults.

Asus Rampage, Q9450 @ 3.2GHz, 4GB DDR2 800MHz (4-4-4-12), 8800GTS 512MB

Re: A problem with my M1330

Where did you axquire the niv driver? Was it off the Dell site?  Lots of times Dell uses a OEM version of the graphics board and does not support the retail version.  I have found it best to stick with the updates only that Dell post in the drivers section.  I installed wrong driver can cause you a bluescreen lockup.
