I have uTorrent on my new Gateway laptop and it works fine. I think it's just that, "Dude You Bought A Dell?!"

Seriously though, has to be a hardware problem IMO.

If you can try booting from a CD or floppy and see if the display is OK.
If it is then the problem is in your OS or programs.

My first reaction to your post was "VIRUS" or similar.
