If this is still UG return it to Dell to fix

If it isn't covered by the Warranty any longer you can attack the unit with the aid of the Service Manual available here

But this will be either a problem in the Display or Video Card neither of which is a Cheap Repair.

You could also check Dell for any Product Recalls on your Model NB to see if they have recalled it for any reason and then let them fix it for you.
