Do I need to back up my OS X install and revert back to Ubuntu to get them to fix the problem or does it not matter since this is entirely a hardware issue? any advice would be majorly helpful.
I've always wanted to say this..
can you print screen that and show us? :P
As for dell, it really depends on what path they take....send it in or send someone out....or send out the part.
You might want to backup your stuff and undo any physical mods prior to sending it in.
Default OS reinstall might be necessary.
