Color banding can be seen on the Inspiron 8200 with the ATI 9000 video card and Sharp ASV LCD panel

On Inspiron 8200 systems that have the ATI 9000 video card and the Sharp ASV UXGA LCD panel, the screen may have color bands visible on the desktop bitmap or other system graphics. The screen looks as if it is in 16bit color but it is actually in 32 bit color. This is a cosmetic issue and if connected to an external monitor the image will look normal.

A video BIOS update has been released that corrects the color banding seen on Sharp "UltraSharp" UXGA LCD panels. The video BIOS update is availabe from the Dell support web site at: http://support.dell.com.
