It's a bad video card.  To confirm that, attach an external monitor - if the card is bad, the monitor will show the same fault.

Re: Problem with dell inspiron 1520 display

First step would be to reseat both ends of the ribbon cable that runs between the mainboard and display panel.  Check the cable for damage - if it's damaged, replace it.

If that doesn't fix the problem, the next thing to replace is the panel itself.  However, note that these video chips aren't known to be the most robust of designs - - and when they fail, it is is possible that the external monitor may display OK while the internal one is faulty -- so there's no guarantee the video card is still good, even if the external display is OK.
