Question about Dell Inspiron 8200 Latitude C840 Laptop Keyboard03J247 CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

Latitude 820 formatted, drivers lost

Hi
A friend of mine asked me to help formatting her Dell Latitude 820 laptop, since it was so full of viruses she couldn't even start it up. She gave me a pack of never opened system-CD/DVDs that came with the computer. However, after formatting and installing a fresh OS, some important drivers are lost and I can't find them on the CDs or on Dell's homepage. Most important, I can't connect to the internet so I have tried to download drivers via another computer, to a USB-stick. Doesn't help, still a lot of yellow ?s in the Dell... The CDs say they belong to the Inspiron-series, does this matter? She claims these are the only CDs she has. She leaves for Germany soon (I live in Sweden) so I have to fix this asap.
Thanks in advance!
/Eva

Yes it matters! You need to go to www.support.dell.com and select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't have the proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installed return to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "service tag",(serial number) of the 820 laptop. Dell keeps a listing of drivers for every customer's computer they sell.

My laptop dell latitude d505 , monitor resoluion fixed at 16 bit 640x480, page and too large. display property cant change it.


Hi Friend, In this case I would recommend you to please update the video drivers of the system from the following link :
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&os=WLH&osl=en&SystemID=LAT_PNT_PM_D505&catid=-1&impid=-1
Please make sure to select the Operating system first and from the below list of options on the above page, the last option you will see is of Video. Download the drivers, install them and then restart the system and then try to change the resolution.
Please let me know if it was of help by reverting back Thank you,

My computer won't turn on and it goes to a black screen with words and then i click start windows normally and it goes to a blue screen then stops, how do i get it to turn on?


The blue screen states that it has a hardware error. Usually the problem is in the memory card. All you have to do is open your computer (cpu) and removed the memory card. Try to blow the memory slot and try to clean the memory card pins with a clean cloth and return it back to the memory slot. After that try to turn it on if it works. If not, try to replace the memory card if you have a spare.
Aside from memory card problem is the hardisk problem but usually rare. Try the memory step first before the hardisk step.

Dell latitude 820 mouse driver


Whne you double click on the mouse in device manager, does it say "device not configured" or "unable to start this device". If it says "unable to start this device" try the mouse on a different computer to make sure it works properly. If it does then you probally have a software driver problem. Try contacting the mouse manufacturer or see if you can down load drivers from their site.

Hmmm, Typically safe mode overcomes most errors, You can make changes in MS-Dos, but if all else fails and you fear data loss, daisy chain the hard disk to another computer with matching OS and move the important files then wipe and re-format
