Dell inspiron 9200 boot problem

It appears video card has malfunctioned, as my display is completely blank. Indicator lights show that there is power and HD access but there is nothing on the screen, even after hard reboot. Is the video adapter replaceable or do I need to replace the entire mother board?

Compouter will not start up. When first turned on, I get the Dell Inspiron screen with the bar under the logo, then the screen goes blank for a second and then all there is is the curser in the upper left...

You can try to boot to safemode. When you turn on system as soon as you see Dell logo keep tapping F8,select Safemode under advance boot option. If you we're able to log in to your account you can try to uninstall video driver and restart the system to normal mode then reinstall the video driver.
If you we're not able to boot to safemode , you can try to connect to external monitor toggle to FN+F8 if still not showing anything might be a bad video card.

Dell Inspiron 9400 laptop display problem

First power the system on using Fn+Power and see if the diags run and you have video. If you have video in the diagnostics, then I'd suspect the video card as the failure point.
Also connect an external monitor and press Fn + F8 to activate the VGA port If you get video on an external monitor, I'd suspect the LCD as the failure point.

Dell Inspiron 9400 display goes blank after a few minutes

If the issue occurs in the safe mode, then I'm suspecting a failure of the LCD backlight. (It warms up and quits) Also see if video stays on using an external monitor. If it does, then the LCD is most likely failing.

If video goes out on an external monitor as well, then the Video card is failing due to overheating. Make sure all vents are free of dust (Clean with canned compressed air) and the all fans are functional (Run the fan test in diagnostics) If fans check up, then video card is failure point. If fans fail diags, replace affected fan 1st

Acer aspire 5220 booting problem

Try connecting to an external monitor. If it displays on the external monitor then the LCD is probably dead. If it doesn't display on the external monitor, its a problem with the video card.

I have Dell laptop inspiron 630m. I formated the laptop then the display driver is missing. Its showing all the things except its display got more wider

just check your video card model, then go online to download the video card driver.
in case you have a build-in-video card like intel .....somethings, just go back and check your model , and download the video card driver.

My inspiron 9200 has a flashing amber light. It is the one on the right and it flashes four times, then keeps repeating. Thanks, john

It is an error code. Dell support can tell you what the exact code means but usually it is a graphics card, power supply, RAM, or motherboard issue. Hope this helps.

Half of my diswplay on my Inspiron 9200 is blacked out with a vertical line going through middle.

You can reseat the video cable to the video card, and see if that makes any difference.

Also, Connect an external monitor, then press FN+F8 and see if the issue appears on an external screen, If not, then replace the LCD

Did you fix the Dell Insipirion 9200 video problem?

This sounds like your video settings could be set improperly, did you attempt to boot up in safe mode and then change your display options? Sometimes you need to monkey with windows to get it to accept new video settings, try removing the video display from the control panel, if this has been done and you can't correct the issue a reload may be in order or at worst case you may have a malfunctioning video card
