Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

1 Answer

Errorcode 2000:0221 / 4C00:041C

I am having problems with my Dell Inspiron 6400 lately. It want boot into Windows OS and it is not booting any recovery CD to the end. The PSA diagnostic program shows 2000:0221 (Interval Timer Channel 0 (mode 0) is not generating interrupts). In addition the extended check display the code 4C00:041C (channel mode 2 is not operating correctly). I have checked the hard drive and it seems okay. What does it mean? How can it be fixed? Has somebody made experience with this problem?

Found a similar post in the DELL forums, seems to be a hardware failure on the system board. http://en.community.dell.com/forums/p/18830946/18953932.aspx#18953932

Strangely seems that Vista is not affected by this as I assume you have XP.

Your computer is not booting up and it can be either software or hardware problem. You can check out the software part by trying to boot it with the original OS CD/DVD. If it does boot then you will need to reinstall windows by using the repair option by following the on-screen instructions.

If it fails to boot up then its a problem of the hardware. It could be as simple as cleaning the ram modules or more complicated, hence I would advice you seek help from their authorized service center.

I had a similar problem. I fitted a new hard drive loaded windows and on the first re boot i had no OS again.
I went into the bios checked the boot order and also the hard drive booting options. My settings had unticked the hard drive as a bootable drive. When i ticked it and installed the original HD it worked again.
At least i have a spare Hard drive in the draw :)

This is a no boot issue. Youre saying that you can perfectly run the PSA diagnostics but doesnt load Windows rather it stays on black screen, meaning the boot loader of Windows failed to load. You need to reinstall windows on your computer

Have you tried rebooting and pressing f11 several times immediately up on reboot. This will give you the option to restore to Dell's System restore. If this does not work for you let me know. I have it had work for previous client's.
