Dell Inspiron 9200 video issue

My Inspiron is ill. I have tested the screen on a different laptop and it works fine. I resat and then replaced that video card. I can hear the machine is on and running and you can actually find the log in button and get into the desktop. But you cant see anything. The screen stays completely black the entire time. Any ideas on whats going on and how I can fix it?

When you tested the screen did you test the cable/ribbon, and the inverter, or just the screen by itself? If not it could be the cable or the inverter. If you did test these, then you might lean towards the connector on the motherboard, or a trace that leads to the connector. Also, have you tested the machine on an external monitor? I know Dell has some diagnostic tools to download from their support site. You might try this as well. The diagnostic tool and the external may reveal some clues to exactly what's going on. Try these and let me know.

I think I would contact Dell's customer service before buying and changing any parts. I have been told Dells online live tech service is very helpfull.

No main video. external video vga works


Seems to me that you may be experiencing a BIOS issue I would go to Dell web site and download the BIOS again for sure to make sure the BIOS is back to working order. This may be the issue try this and any other drivers that have to do with video you may have a corrupted driver along the line here that is how I would handle it. Click Here

I have a Dell Inspiron 9200. My screen is showing black lines on different spots. They run from top to bottom. There are at least 5 lines. Do I need to replace the screen? Thanks


Turn off the computer and when you restart it keep tapping the key F2 on the top left of the keyboard. A BIOS screen should come up. If you see the lines on the screen at that time then yes its a hardware issue. If not then your video card drivers might be faulty and you can re-install them.
Thanks If this was helpful, then kindly rate me.

Vertical lines on laptop screen


There are only two issues here, one it could be the data cable on the left side of the screen has come loose from the socket on the LCD.....most likely though is your starting to have a cascading screen failure and will need to replace the LCD panel.

Black line down right side of screen


turn off laptop.
press and hold on the D then press Power button.
during the LCD BIST test check if the black line down right side of the screen is visible. if yes LCD needs to be replaced. if not connect your laptop to an external monitor check if the black line display appears to the ext monitor, if yes uninstall / reinstall video driver if fails replace video card or if it is built in replace motherboard.

if no ext monitor available then run PSA (press and hold Fn key then press Power button)

check if the black line is visible. Check also in BIOS is black line is visible, if yes then uninstall reinstall first the video driver if fails replace LCD.

Laptop speakers not working


Hi you can try this:

From Start, go into Control Panel, then select Sounds, Speech & Audio devices, then Sounds and Audio Devices again.

On Volume tab, click on Advanced. Now choose Laptop stereo speakers. This may sort out the problem. Try the other options if they still don't work.

Half of my diswplay on my Inspiron 9200 is blacked out with a vertical line going through middle.


You can reseat the video cable to the video card, and see if that makes any difference.

Also, Connect an external monitor, then press FN+F8 and see if the issue appears on an external screen, If not, then replace the LCD

Did you fix the Dell Insipirion 9200 video problem?


This sounds like your video settings could be set improperly, did you attempt to boot up in safe mode and then change your display options? Sometimes you need to monkey with windows to get it to accept new video settings, try removing the video display from the control panel, if this has been done and you can't correct the issue a reload may be in order or at worst case you may have a malfunctioning video card
