Probably a missing or corrupt driver. Re-install the driver from Dell.com

This error code shows that the battery has got completely damaged or about to damage. the last thing, if you are using a duplicate battery, or no battery in system, then also it can show you the same error. You need a new original battery for your system.

1) Is the Screen resolution set correctly?

Native screen resolution should be set to 1024 x 600.

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Go to the bottom of the list, and click on - Properties
The Display Properties window will come up.

Click on the Settings tab.
Down in the middle of the Display Properties window, you will see Screen resolution in blue.

There is a Slider. In WinXP it is an Arrow, with a Green tip on top, and bottom.
Left-click on the Slider, hold the left mouse button down.

Now move your mouse to the Left, to drag the Slider to Less screen Resolution, or to the Right to Increase.

Stop at 1024 x 600 pixels.

Also the Color quality should be set to Highest (32 bit)

Click on the blue down arrow to the right of the Color quality box.
In the list click on Highest (32 bit)

Go below to the Right, and click on Apply.
Now go below to the Left, and click on OK.

If that doesn't cure the problem, the problem is a hardware issue.
Problem will be;
1) Graphics chipset,
OR,
2) Video Cable,
OR,
3) LCD screen

[The Backlight used is LED backlighting. Uses a series of LED's.
Light Emitting Diode.
There is NO screen Inverter ]

Try connecting an external monitor to the 15 VGA (video) plug on the laptop and see if it displays properly on the monitor. You may have to direct the video from the laptop to the monitor by holding down the blue <FN> (key next to the space bar) and then press down the <F8> key.
If the display on the external monitor is correct, then you either have a problem with the laptop's LED display screen or cable that connects the LED to system board. Here is a link for the service manual:
