    I have an alienware m51 laptop, it has red and blue squiggly lines
    running across the lcd screen, if I tap ontop of the case above the
    keyboard they go away momentarily, I 1st thought it was a loose cable
    so I reseated all of them. Then I thought it may be the invertor for
    the lcd screen, took it out examined under a magnifined glass, and
    nothing, also researted those cables again, the only other thing I can
    suggest is there is a circuit either not grounding or a loose cicuit
    that is connected with the video card btw its a readon 9000...has
    anyone else had this problem or a similar one, as I know solidstate
    somewhate, but if I could narrow down on the board where to look it
    would be very helpful, thanks.

    Start looking for dry joints in the driver IC's around the screen
    itself !
