Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook

2 Answers

Can I replace Dell Inspiron 8000 monitor w/ Inspiron 8100 monitor

My 8100 laptop has fan issues and may possibly need a new motherboard, so I don't use it. 
My 8000 laptop works fine, except for the lovely pink line (about 2 pixels wide) that just popped up on its monitor.
Is it possible to swap them?
If so, is this something a non-techie can or should even attempt?
Many thanks.

I would think the LCDs should be the same, but I can't guarantee it. The connectors may be different, but may be interchangeable. As far a non-techie attempting it, I'd recommend not but maybe you could find someone who could. The service manuals are available on DELL's Website. You could possibly just disassemble enough to view the video connectors.

If you're a non-techie, I would send it in to Dell and have them fix it. Youo could brick the thing if you don't know what you're doing.

How to replace battery in dell inspiron 8000


I assume you mean the CMOS battery? The battery is located on the motherboard, in a little cradle. Unplug the computer, open the side. Be careful to earth yourself so that you don;t transmit a charge to the motherboard. Carefully remove the old battery (I use a small flat bladed screwdriver) Insert the new one, replace the cover, re-connect the mains and turn on!

Dell Inspiron 8100 won't boot


Send it in to a repair facility, usually runs 80-130 online through ebay. Inspirons are known for blowing fuses/resistors. This may have happened, but either way if you pull the new battery and it dont work still with charger or vice versa you have a power issue on the motherboard.

Good Luck!

Screen comes on and after about 5 min. it goes off the computer is still on.


To narrow down the problem area, connect the laptop to an external monitor, if everything works properly, then you have a bad screen. If it does the same, then you have a failing motherboard component that is causing the shutdown.
