I have a Dell Inspiron laptop and for no reason the text and lines on the screen turn into squiggles and then 5 seconds later the screen goes dark. Not totally dark; you can tell the laptop is still on. I then remove the battery and unplug it, then turn it back on. It will always reboot in safe mode, however most of the time it gets stuck on the 4 color windows starting screen. Then I have to remove the battery, unplug it and then retry. Sometimes it will then fully reboot. Thinking it was a software problem, I reinstalled the operation system which fixed it for a week. Now it just did it again so now I'm thinking it may be a hardware problem. Any thoughts? Any help would be appreciated.
