Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 PC Notebook
I recently plugged in my Inspiron 2200 laptop into an outlet. There was a power surge, and the lights in our house flicked off. I apparently tripped the breaker. Anyway, ever since then, my power meter on my laptop reads "14%: 159:52 hours." Also, the LED light that indicates my charger is plugged in does not turn on. Anyone have any ideas what's going on? I initially thought my charger was fried, but my laptop hasn't died.
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.

Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.
Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).
Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.
Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.
Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.
hope this helps
