Re: fuzzy laptop speakers

If you are getting a very scratchy sound out of your speakers they may be broken. You can get replacements for somewhat cheap online and replace them yourself or hire a local tech to do it. The job should take no more than 1 hour labor.

Fuzzy screen

There are a few things to consider, and your input has validated this...

If you see this on the laptop and an external monitor, it's not your display screen on the laptop. It sounds like your graphics card.

If your system seems to work for a few minutes, but then fails after a while, it sounds like you might have a heat issue where either the cpu or the video card isn't able to disburse heat well enough, so it corrupts your system, regardless of how you're viewing it.

See if you can use a nozzle attachment from your Vac and **** out the crud, get a can of compressed air and see if you can blow out the vents around the fan and laptop, and then try the Vac again.

I've seen laptops from owners that have "cake" in their vents.

Lastly, consider updating your bios. Go to Dell and put in your service tag and get the updated bios for your machine. Sometimes follow-up versions of bios releases have enhancements to laptop cooling. Dell is notorious for coming out with cooling fixes AFTER the product is released.

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.

Good luck!

Hi Danielle,

You can replace the actual speakers:
Manufacturer: DELL Part Number: TF182

Description: Inspiron series (E1505, 6400) speaker set


Here's an ebay link:

Hope this helps

Laptop with Fuzzy Screen

It sounds like your video card is overheating.

Try getting one of the laptop coolers from bestbuy or other store. They separate the laptop from the table, allowing more air to flow and cool it. The good ones even have a fan to help it.

Good luck!
