Re: 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.

I can see items on the screen barely

You most likely have a bad video inverter or bad screen. 90% of the time we see this it is the inverter. Video inverters are relatively inexpensive and easy to replace if you are mechanically inclined. Do a goole search for your model and include the words "inverter". You should find a full selection of vendors. You can obtain instructions on in how to change the inverter. The whole job takes less than one hour.

How do I turn the wireless on the Dell Inspirion 8200

there is no on-off switch for the wireless on the dell inspiron 8200 if I recall correctly. Make sure:

1. The mini-PCI slot (might actually have to open the little door on the back of the laptop) contains a wireless card


2. right click on "my computer", properties, hardware tab... device manager. See if there are any devices listed (yellow "!") that do not have drivers installed. Go to and download drivers for your wireless card and install them.

There is not a reset button that model. The only other way to force restart it would be to unplug the computer from the outlet. This is not a recommended method but, it can be used a last resort if your computer is hanging.

Downloading videos from Camcoder to laptop

What camcorder do you have? What OS are you running? What type of connectors does your camcorder use to connect to the laptop? USB, firewire, or S-Video, or something else? And why can't you find the drivers for it? Canon's web site offers support, including driver downloads for an incredible arrary of products. Their tech support group is very helpful, and they are pretty quick about replying to inquiries via e-mail?
