Re: no power through the laptop dell d6oo
There's evidently a short on the laptop's motherboard. Unless it's something obvious that can be repaired easily (and it'll still cost a lot for the labor to take the laptop completely apart and put it back together), you're going to have to get the motherboard replaced (expensive)or get a new laptop - depending on which seems more cost effective to you.

I would try this:
take the battery out
unplug the charger
turn upside down
hold power button down for 1 min
keep holding power button down as you turn over the laptop
while still holding power button down plug in charger and try to power on
hi sounds like the laptop has a motherboard fault, dell laptops need to be run from dell chargers only and at correct voltage and correct amps output. the information is normally provided on lable on the base of the laptop, universal chargers do not normally work on dell laptops, would suggest you try and use original dell charger .
Remove the main battery from the laptop and try power, if it works the battery is bad, if no change the charger needs to be checked for proper voltage. Since your laptop is less than a year old you should have warranty for up to the year, check this asp and find your paperwork should verify.
I'm assuming you are using a GENUINE Dell laptop charger designed for this model?
Check the end of the adaptor, if it is the type that has the centre pin, make sure it has not snapped off. Check the adaptor is putting out 20 volts DC by connecting a multimeter to the outer and inner parts of the DC jack.
Usually, the ac adaptor LED will flash green if there is no charge going to the laptop ("spitting back power"), however, a dead adaptor is often recognised by a lack of the lED light glowing
You can try with a universal adaptor, it will not charge the battery but at least will eliminate the charger or the charging circuit. If this also fails to power up the laptop, then the issue lies with damage to the motherboard
1 Disconnect the battery and the charger 2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes. 3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. 4 Connect the charger (don't connect the battery yet) and try to start by pressing the power button.
There's no fuse problem with that computer, try this first, Plug in the charger to an outlet don't plug it in the laptop, if the light on the charger turns on, then the charger is working try to plug it on the computer if the light on the charger goes out there's a problem with your motherboard. Contact the tech support for that so you can get that part replaced.
To double check try to use a known good charger if it works then you'll need another charger if not, Then contact your tech support for your dell make sure you still have a warrant.
Replace the charger, it probably overheat and died. Try with a voltmeter to measure the output power (usually aroud 19 V DC) Then the tricky part, try to power something else with the charger , something who might work with the output power (a car light bulb for exemple). If it does work then you have a short cut on the motherboard of your laptop if it's the case replace the laptop, it's the hell of a job to repair the motherboard... good luck
If the system will not power on, and the LED on the AC adapter goes out when plugged into the system, then the most likely senario is the motherboard has failed. Remove the battery, Wireless card, Drives, RAM and connect the AC adapter see if anything changes. If no change, the MB is most likely bad.
Try to turn off the computer and remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook. Turn on the computer with just the charger plugged in. If it doesnt turn on. you may have a bad power port.
If it has no power/charging issue since that happened except that the indicator light doesnt turn on when you plug in the charger, you may just need a bios update. Click here. That's the bios update for the inspiron 2200 from dell's website. You should have at least 30% charge on the battery and the ac adapter should be plugged in so you can run it. The computer will restart and will come back normally after this. I'd suggest that you backup your files before running this.
