Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook
The device in the system modular bay cannot be identified
Ok, this is a misworded error message on dells end. this laptop does not have a modular bay instead it has a locked in disc drive. Based on what i have seen on other dell laptops i would have to say the cd drive is going bad. To test this try removing the cd drive. Power the laptop on and push the eject button then power the laptop off. Flip the laptop overand there will be a screw to hold the drive in, this screw will be close to the center and will be the only screw in a square hole, remove this screw. Now if you followed my directions, you should have the drive out. Pull the tray out as far as it will go then grab the two sides closest to the laptop and gently pull it out. If you are having problems you can stick a flat screw driver in the square hole and push the piece of metel to the side to remove.
Now power the laptop on it may say something about there not being a cd drive(optical drive) if it does not say: "the device in the system modular bay cannot be identified" then you need to replace to CD drive.
