Display problem, new 1100

​I just got an inspiron1100 a month back. Today, the display started to show several horizontal lines (bars) across the screen when loading the startup software during windows boot-up, which of course went away instantly afterwards. I updated the driver and tried to adjust the display setting to a lower mode (high color) according to the FAQ. It was not helping. To make things worse, on the blue XP home login screen, it started to show a ripple kind thing with the size of a grapefruit. Besides, when I try to set the display properties, the lines came on and then went away whenever I switched to a different topic (tab). I am not sure if it is a problem of the display setting, the video adapter or the video memory… Maybe I miss something else?​

​ This is my first notebook. Any input shall be appreciated. Thank you!​
