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.

Hi, sounds like your display/video card drivers are not installed... If you have an ATI video card you can just google ati display drivers...

Dell Inspiron 8200 ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 Green Screen Problem

Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop. After your computer is attached to an external monitor, press the <Fn> key and the <F8> (CRT, LCD) key to switch the video image to the display. If the external monitor works, the computer display or video controller may be defective.

Distorted images

sounds more like a problem with the drivers and/or the settings for resolution or refresh rate, have you tried to boot into safe mode and uninstall the drivers ? Also when you do this you may want to use a regisrty cleaner to remove all traces to the drivers in your registry as some driver do not remove all trace from the registry upon uninstallation.

Display Problem

It is possible, judging by that fact that pressing down temporarily fixes it, that the video cable for the screen (I'm assuming this is a laptop?) has come loose. Pull off the keyboard and try reseating the cable, that may help.
