Dell Inspiron 1521

I have a Dell Inspiron 1521 and when it is turned on it has color bars running horizontal accross the screen. I replaced the moniter ribbon and the inverter and it still does the same thing. When I plug an external moniter into the laptop both the external and the laptop moniter works fine.
My question is it the video card or the mother board need replacing?
Thanks,
Rick

  1. Could you take an actual picture of it with a camera, not a screenshot? And when you take a screenshot are the bars still there?
  2. I just took a picture with a camera and the bars are still there
