I am considering getting an Inspiron 2200 that has developed 3 thin white vertical lines on the display. The lines appear as soon as the machine is powered up. The machine has 256MB RAM and if I buy it I want to increase it to 1GB.
My question is, are these lines going to get worse over time, or should they remain the way they are until the machine dies :emotion-4:?
I have an Inspiron E1505. My LCD screen had a blue verticle line pop up about 6 months ago. A couple months later another line popped up, then a little later another. I now have 4 sets of lines. (From left to right) the first set is 3 blue lines all bunched together into on big line. The next set is a single red line. The third set is one light blue and two blue lines grouped together. The last one is right at the right edge and is one red, and three single white lines grouped together.
So to make a long story short...don't buy it unless you want to replace the LCD screen (which is easy if you can find the part).
Dear ____Identity Edit____,
Thanks for getting back to me regarding the LCD Vertical Line issues on my Inspiron 9200. I was not understanding why the posts were pulled, attempting to edit the content, and not realizing that the sources of the problem, (names of people spoken to, case number identifiers), needed to be pulled from the record. If you need to delete items posted today, February 26, I understand. I just need for there to be a record that it took 6 attempts to actually get the information I needed, which finally came today from you. The information from you today I found to be satisfactory. Yet, while I remain dissatisfied with Dell products and overall, the warranty, payment options for North American customer service, offshore customer service, and and offshore tech support processes, I am pleased that you made the effort to help me today. As I research articles on Dell, I continue to find support which highlights overall consumer dissatisfaction with Dell products and the decision of Dell to outsourse customer service resources. Certainly I am disgusted with the case of warranty expiration on my computer. Yet, the greater concern is that Dell is not adequately managed in addressing consumer service needs through methods of telephone communication.
