Presario v2000 display problems

Following problems started last week:

-sometimes everything starts normally and works fine, then display (at any time, without warning) becomes vertical lines (sometimes blue, sometimes grey, or green or orange or any color) and computer is locked, or
-sometimes powers on, starts windows and then black screen, or
-sometimes powers on, power button, cd, caps lock, and num lock led s flash - won't go no further, or
-sometimes powers up, windows flashes briefly, and screen goes black.

If I shake unit, flashing led s go out and then can power off and power on and everything works (sometimes)

    The Windows screen is the normal windows blue/ green during start up and then for a couple seconds it starts up with color on the display [desktop, icons, etc. all in color] before switching to black and white and staying that way. Is the video card going bad?

Some time no display, normaly server work fine,...

I have same problem with my previous DELL and now with my new (1550) onr too.

Sometimes when starting up the laptop with own display (not remote one, which this problem has never occured) the display just keep to be black. Sometimes it helps to close dislpay (to make laptop to go "sleep" mode and then open it up again, but this does not help always).

Maybe this is normal behaviour for DELL laptops ... This is last DELL that I bought.

F350 super duty,engine cuts out without warning

Check to see if your truck was recalled for a faulty cam shaft sensor. Some sensors develop hair line cracks which allow contaminants to get in and the sensor becomes intermittent. The symptoms can include sudden shutdown of the engine so a recall was issued.

Cannot play tape.

Sometimes that happens to me too. What I do is just push play, then fast forward, and normally if you watch it, the picture starts to come back. Just keep fast forwarding until you can see all of the picture, and you should be fine.

The following will run the self-test mode
Press mode then press alpha then press s then press enter
