I am getting vertical stripes like this http://en.community.dell.com/cfs-file.ashx/__key/communityserver-discussions-components-files/3518/0272.screen2.jpg Do i need to replace it? The Laptop is around 6 years old, so if the screen is shot is replacing it even worth it at this point?

Download Dell Support Center and run a (full) PC checkup.

that looks like half of the backlight is dead. most likely you'll need to replace the screen.

Considering that the Dell XPS M1530 sells on ebay for anywhere between $50-$200, I'd say junk it and buy a new one.
