Question about Dell Inspiron 8500 Notebook

Introducing Myself : The 8500guru

I just found this forum, and so far it looks wonderful.

I am David, and I have a business of fixing and repairing the Dell 8500, 8600, M60, and D800 notebooks. If you have not already guessed, those models are very similar and most of the parts are interchangeable. I am eager to read the questions and start answering some common problems.

Cheers!

David

    Hello Marcus. It might not be your screen, but the video card inside the laptop. Unlike many other model laptops, the video card inside the Dell 8500 in removable and replacable. You can buy one cheap on eBay now, and I would start there.

    Try getting another video card, a dead screen usually shows nothing, not even lines or bars. Good news is, you can get replacement video cards for a 8500 cheap on online auctions now, and the video card is replaceable on the 8500.

Hi David!
My Inspiron 8500 screen has lost it. It's run through, vertically, by blue fields (stripes), sometime turning in to little red squares, for instance when the cursor is moved. I can still see most of the graphics behind these flickering patterns. Would you know what causes this? Any help is much appreciated!
Thanx

I have 2 Craftsman saws that are at least 50 years old and I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find the manufacture date of the saws. They work fine, just want to know when they were made.


If they are power saws, there are many forums with documentation uploaded on tools with manuals, shop service information, etc. If they're not, some of those forums still might have enthusiasts who could help you date them by things such as handle shape, tone of the stain on the handle, etc. I've also found that the usually frustrating parts business online ("Part Not Available") still has information sometimes, such as manuals, etc., for tools going back that far. I found documentation on a drill press I've got that was made in '65.

Last year I try to start a bike (yamaha dragstar) using the jumper leads, unfortunetely I nonnected them wrongly + to - :( After this accident motorbike never started again, then I decided to purchase...


Hi, David for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

I just got a Rosieres F200T oven for free but don't know what the degree knob means since it is numbered 1-9 and not the actual temps that I am looking for. I was searching online to see if anywhere...


Hello, Timcampbell82 -

I have tried to find a user's manual for a Rosieres F200T oven for you. I suspect the user's manual states what temperature each of the numbers for the degree knob represent.

So far, I have not found a manual online for you. I did find an online forum in French, with mention of a manual for the oven model, but the messages date from 2008:
https://www.meilleurduchef.com/fr/forum/notice_materiel/1225015073-14054-650

You may wish to locate a business in your area which performs repairs for Rosieres ovens and ask if they can find a manual you can purchase for your model oven. Or, perhaps one of the repair technicians can tell you what temperature each number represents.

Best wishes.

They say I have made 6 bucks so far. I have probably saved the people in this forum thousands in repair bills. I only began about a week ago.
I enjoy it. I suspect if you think each answer will pay 6 bucks you are wrong. They only pay on premium answers.

Broken LCD screen on Fuji digital camera, how to replace by myself?


buy202.com is a scam. I sent my Casio EX-S600 camera to them to repair the lcd screen and they not only didn't repair it, but lost it. They do not return any calls or emails, and we stopped at their 'advertised address' in Columbus, Ohio and it is boarded up. We have reported their owners, Josh McVey and Reverend David, to the Better Business Bureau.
