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

1 Answer

Dropped laptop Hello. I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 that was working pretty much perfectly....until my girlfriend dropped it onto our carpeted floor. Since then, the battery will not charge at all, and it often freezes up if too much is happening on the screen (it will also work fine as long as the mouse is kept moving and not much is happening on the screen), especially screen savers. Nothing saved on it was lost, and we have even continued saving things on the HD. There is no obvious cosmetic damage. It boots just fine; no error messages or anything. The only problems are the freezing and the battery. I'm thinking mother board, but I'm not the expert.

Press and hold the <Fn> key while powering the system on. This will run the Dell Diagnostics. Another more intense diagnostic program is located on a Dell CD that you should have received with your laptop. Look for one that has “Diagnostics and utilities” listed under the “Contents”. You will have to boot from that CD disk. To do this, power on your laptop and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the “One time boot menu”. Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit <Enter> key. Select the “Run the 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics”.

You need to download from DELL website, since there are more than one versions of the 8200, you should use the service tag instead, see here:

I dropped my Inspiron E1505 from the couch seat to the carpet floor and it will not come on again. What Could be the problem?


do you see any lights in the laptop, like power light? if yes, then the problem is the lcd screen. if there's no light at all then the problem is already in the board so you might wanna bring it in for repairs.

My dell 8200 inspiron laptop right speaker its not working


My guess is the speakers or connectors have gone bad. I have seen this in a lot of different laptops.

If you are handy, you can disasemble the laptop, find the speakers, and get a part number off of them. Dell is pretty good about labeling the part numbers. Then do a search on Google and Ebay for the speakers, I am sure you can find some cheap used ones that work.

Here is a manual for disassembly of your laptop, and shows where all the parts go. You will need Adobe reader to read this.

Dell Inspiron 8200 Battery


I assume that you have your charger plugged in as long as you use the laptop...

There are very minimal chances o the battery having been damaged, since the casing on the inspiron 8200 is quite sturdy.. i suggest you get the charge socket (the socket that leads to the main wall electricity outlet) from a qualified technician...
