Inspiron 1501 Display has horizontal lines

My Inspirion 1501 has horizontal lines so that the display can not be used. I connected to an external monitor and it works fine. I was able to run the diagnostics while connected to the external monitor. There were no failed tests. Please advise.

Thank you for your help. I will try what you have advised.

I have already run the extended test and again the specific video diagnostic. with no error. Are you refering to a different test?

 

Thank you again for your help
