Dell Studio 15 laptop displaying red and green lines inconsistently

I have green lines that are on my wallpaper. They disappear when I hit the start button on the taskbar. I also had red lines appearing when I ran different windows, and it seems these red lines are confined to a specific area of the screen- in fact the green lines seem to be too, but they disappear when I hit the start button, that's the odd part. Do I need to replace both the screen and video card, or may this just be a screen problem alone?

  1. Any chance you have a regular monitor you could plug into the output on the back of the laptop? If the lines show up there, then it is probably the video card.
