I have an Inspiron 8200 and it "blinks" or goes black when I'm online and when I'm playing games offline. it's almost like it's thinking or something. What could cause this to happen?

I have a dell 8200 desktop. can i download a dvd driver and how?


I think you don't need any driver for your DVD to used on the Computer, because usually it has built in driver.

Just plug and play.

Lost connection to server


If youre connected online with that game, i think the problem will most likely be on your internet connection,you can check if your internet connection is stable by pinging any website. You can try open up Windows Command Prompt if your using windows and type ping www.yahoo.com.

If youre referring to offline games and connected via network lan, you should check your LAN card if its ok by pinging your Lan address which is 127.0.0.1.

Or if your not connected on Network Lan, then you should try reinstalling the game.

Cant play online games with my Gateway® M-6864 FX Black w/ Orange Accent. can still get on the internet but cant play online games.


Hi Bob,

If you are having issue playing online games but able to surf the internet, It means that the Firewall is not allowing you to play online games. Normally this is cause by a Firewall protection. As of now, DSL modems has Firewall features and you can manage them if you know so. But if you don't, contact your Internet provider to resolve this issue.
