Question about Dell Inspiron 8200 Notebook
I have 2 problems with this unit.
1. I have just started experiencing multipal vertical colored lines on my screen. I thought it was a driver problem.
2. When I start up the computer the resolution is in the lowest position (800x600pxl) and when I press apply the resolution goes back to the lowest choice. If I also change the color quality to 32 bit and press apply it also goes back to 4bit. It won't stay in the correct resolution or color quality. I think it may also be a driver.
3. Could these 2 problems be related to a driver problem or to a virus condition?
Possibly either or a hardware fault..
Does the pc have an external monitor port? Most do.. If you can get another monitor, plug it up and use the correct hot keys (keys on your keyboard) to switch between the laptop monitpr & the external, it might help diagnose the problem. Maybe select a generic driver for the external monitor.. Although the pc will probably pick it up ok. If you need further help, let me know. Rgds.
