Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop...32 bit...Windows 7...often gets full page of horizontal streaks and problems in power-off & on.

A full page of horizontal streaks appear on the screen at odd times requiring force power-off & forced power-on ...
also, after closing lid I must force power-off, then press power-on several times to get it back on again.
(power settings are "do nothing"
when closing lid and when it come on it says 'Windows Error Recovery'.
  Both problems are time consuming & frustrating. Could this be a Windows 7 problem or what?
Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop; 32 bit; using Windows 7.
It is 4 months old and has been serviced twice including install of new hard-drive and touch pad...also have talked to the Dell techs 14 times.

It’s very unfortunate that you are facing this issue with a new four month old computer.
This is very uncommon with new a computer/laptop.
The intermittent horizontal streaks and the error with closing of lid with a new computer suggests that there’s a problem
with the hardware that you are having.
I would recommend you to get a replacement when the hardware is well within its warranty period.
