Question about Dell Inspiron 8000, 8100, 8200 Series Laptop Hard Drive Caddy (GPOHD-D8000 Caddy) CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

Gray screen My Dell Inspiron 8200 gives a light gray and a little blue in the left site. This appears so soon when the screen gets power. I do have an idea that the harddisk is working properly, but the videocard is broken. Am I right? And if I am, how can I find out what kind og videocard I have? Thanks in front. ;)

    That doesn't help.

    My idea is that the harddisk is working porperly, but I can not get something on the screen. The background light is on, but the pixels are light gray and a litle blueish on the leftsite, a little i a cloud pattern.

    So, I can't look in properties or anything else :(

MY LAPTOP DELL INSPIRON 8200 SCREEN LIGHT KEEPS BLINKING, WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM??


It can be 2 things: Or the screen is dying, or the graphics card is dying. Try to start up with an external screen and see if it still blinks. When its still blinking on the external screen, your graphics card is dying, if the external screen shows no issue, then your screen is dying.

Boot up with a Dell Recovery CD to format your hard disk and install a fresh copy of Windows on your laptop.
If you do not have a Recovery CD for your model laptop then you can get one from the Dell WEB site.
You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

I have a Dell Inspiron 8200. The mouse does not respond. It slides down and to the left and then becomes inoperable. Is there any way to fix the problem? Could I use an external mouse?


you can get some really cool tiny little mouse these days or even one with a ball on top that you rotate,ive got an optical one on my standalone,its got a cable but its pretty smooth.
But first try to configure the touchpad in your settings,thaths the most likely problem that you can most probably fix yourself

Setting up S video out on Dell Inspiron 8200


I do this all the time with my ATI powered laptops... Right click the desktop, select properties, choose settings then advanced. You should have 3 screens. Laptop, Monitor and TV (I only get 'multiple monitors' no matter what I try...) You must have it connected before it will allow you to 'activate it' Once its activated theres a place for you to click to make the s-video / tv output your DEFAULT... Keep in mind that with some media players (windows for example) the movie image will only appear on the default screen- the other screen will be blank. So if you are intending to record to your VCR make sure that your TV is the Default.
