Sounds like an issue with :
1) Loose connection issue between the display and mail unit. For this you may need to visit the service center to have it checked.
2) In some cases, this issue is resolved after re-installing OS. ( seen for myself on a non-Dell laptop, issue was gone after reinstalling XP )
My guess is, its a loose connection which needs to be fixed by the Dell service center.
Thanks.

The Cd player my be dirty, you can get disks you put in there to clean them. Also sometimes the players are just picky and don't like certain CD's..... I'll build brand new PC's that only read some CD right from the start.

Make sure your disks are clean to, with no fingerprints.

It's not your operating system that is the cause. Its either a corrupt game file, or your computer/video card can't handle the game.

Please post back with what game you are playing. I will try to be of further assistance.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Combat arms is a nexon online game i play but it hesitates during play why is this


Your video card is not strong enough to play the game smoothly. This is called video lag. You should try playing your game on a computer that is better equipped to play games. The Dell Inspiron is designed for light home and office use, not gaming. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Can't boot up Dell 5100 Dimension, amber light flashes


When you mean the amber light, is that the blinking hard drive access light or the power light? Different cases have different colors on it. Mine has blue and green lights.

If you see the boot screen (bios) and then after it goes to boot, does it blink and hang?

This could be a simple operating system issue, hard drive or hardware/motherboard issue. If you could provide more information, that would help.

Dell Inspiron 700m


I have a Dell Inspiron 5100. I've had it for about three years. One day it did the same thing, no power, no fan, nothing. I replaced the power supply with a 350 watt unit from Office Max. I spent about $40 and I'm using my Dell to send you this response.
