    As mentioned , that everything opens in notepad. Do mean the graphics donot appear ok , or the notepad opens up when you open a program.

    Try ,... System restore , taking back the system to the date it was working fine
    Follow the follwing steps to open system restore
    Start>All Programs>system tools >system restore.

    If still no go , its time to reinstall windows

My Dell Inspiron 1200 laptop has Windows 7 and is trying to open programs in Notepad...


This depends on what your opening for a program Notepad as you know is a word processing program so it will open text documents. You may have to see what program your trying to open and find the appropriate software for doing so then set it as the default for this type of program. You can set the defaults in the control panel where is says default programs. Tick this if it is a word or text file you can use Notepad if you do not have Word or Office installed. If it is email then choose the appropriate email software you are using for email and music files under Windows Media Center until your get the hang of default program settings. All this is allowing you to do is set the opening software to run the program your are opening. John

I have a Dell inspiron 8200 notebook with XP Pro. No sound! All the correct drivers have been downloaded and installed from the Dell website. I think the problem may well be a driver for the keyboard...


If you are getting audio in headphones, then the drivers are correctly installed for the Audio. The headphone jack has a microswitch that disabled the on-board audio, that switch may be stuck disabiling the on-board speakers. If that is the case, the Motherboard would need replacement
