Question about Dell Inspiron 8200 ATI 64MB Video Card - 4U284 Graphic Card

Image problem with my notebook

I own a Dell Inspiron 8200 which was purchased in 2002, and the images on the screen are starting to appear distorted. I think the problem might be with the graphics card(or could it be the video card)? Any help would be appreciated.

Sincerely
Mr. Bill Bowdoin

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.

Return my dell-inspiron to factoy settings


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

Got Dell Inspiron 2650 2002 from a friend, free. Want to restore to factory settings. How? Installed Windows XP and Norton Anti Virus


Hi and welcome to fixya!

There are two ways to restore this machine to factory settings;

First is thru the Recovdery partition in the hard disk itself:

  • 1 Close any windows currently open and click the Inspiron's "Start" button. Select "Shut Down" and choose the "Restart" option.
  • 2 Tap "F8" when the Dell image appears on the screen. Continue tapping the key until the advanced boot menu loads.
  • 3 Scroll down to "Repair Your Computer" and press "Enter" to access the DataSafe local backup screen. Click "Next." Select "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options."
  • 4 Click the "Restore without preserving new or changed files" radio button and click "Next." Click "Next" three more times and click "Restart" to restore the disk drive to its original condition. Follow the on-screen prompts to set your operating system settings.

If the hdd was already repartitioned or corrupted, the second option should work:

  • 1 Insert the Dell recovery disk in your Inspiron's optical drive and close the "AutoPlay" window when it appears. Shut down any other open programs. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
  • 2 Tap "F2" as soon as the Dell image appears on the laptop's screen. Scroll to the "CD-ROM" option and press "Enter." Tap any key when you see the "Press any key to boot" option.
  • 3 Press "Enter" when the setup screen appears. Press "F8" and highlight the Dell's hard drive partition. Press "Enter."
  • 4 Follow the instructions on the screen to choose the Inspiron's operating system options. Click "Finish" and remove the recovery disk from the optical drive. Click "Start" and select "Restart."
Hope this helps!

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.
