Default %#&$9^ Up Alienware?

My friend bought a $3000 alienware laptop a few months ago, and put no warranty on it.

Well anyway it just recently got really messed up. I dont know what happend to it, but when it powers up, the screen looks like a picaso jigsaw puzzle.

Everything is is shifted around, and every color is distorted even in the bios and start up screens.

Any ideas?

This kind of happened to my gateway laptop. There was some kind of loose wire from the video card displaying it on the display
