    This chapter provides an overview of the components and subsystems of this computer. Model names for the Inspiron 7000 indicate the operating frequency of the microprocessor (266 for 266 MHz or 300 for 300 MHz), the size (X for 13.3-inch LCD or G for 14.1-inch LCD) of the display, and the type (T for TFT) of display.

    Select Maximum Performance to conserve power but allow greatest sys- tem performance. When this setting is selected, the Standby Time-Out option is set automatically to 4 minutes, and the Suspend Time-Out option is disabled. The Smart CPU Mode option is set automatically to Off. Select Maximum Power Savings to conserve the greatest amount of sys- tem power.

    The Save-to-disk option under Suspend Mode copies all system data to a reserved area on the hard-disk drive and then turns off all power to the com- puter. When you resume normal operation, the same programs will be running and the same files will be open that were loaded before you activated this mode.

    This chapter describes initial procedures that can help you diagnose a com- puter problem. These procedures can often reveal the source of a problem or indicate the correct starting point for troubleshooting the computer. Dell rec- ommends that you perform these initial procedures in the order they are presented.

  • Page 25: Visual Inspection

    The visual inspection consists of a quick inspection of the exterior of the com- puter and any attached peripherals, including making any necessary corrections. For information about the proper removal and installation of com- puter components, as instructed in the following procedure, see Chapter 4, “Removing and Replacing Parts.”...

    8. If there is a memory area problem and the computer has memory mod- ules, remove the memory modules from the main board, verify that they are free of any obvious physical damage, verify that the connectors on the modules and in the memory module sockets are not damaged, and then reinstall the modules.

  • Page 27: Observing The Boot Routine

    Dell recommends that users make copies of the Dell Diagnostics Diskette. For instructions, see “Before You Start Testing” in Chapter 4, “Run- ning the Dell Diagnostics,” of the Dell Inspiron 7000 Reference and Troubleshooting Guide. To observe the boot routine, follow these steps: 1.
