Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook

1 Answer

My speakers do not work anymore in my inspiron 2200

I have performed after going through all the diagnostic tests in my computer I found that I might need new hardware as the analog sound playback test FAILED and the record/ playback test failed too. Can I solve this problem by purchasing an external sound card or do I have to replace the motherboard?

If you press Fn while powering the system on it should enter diagnostic mode. It will perform some memory tests and then present a video test screen at which point it plays sound through the speakers. If you here this sound, then your hardware is functioning and it is a software problem. There are USB sound cards available - note: you would need external speakers as well.

I got a laptop Dell Inspiron 2200...I turn the power on and all the four (4) green lights goes on then flashes a bit a wont turn on... ANY CAN HELP ME.... Thanks


Hi,
If the the four lights on the computer come and then go off. Then these are the diagnostics lights telling that the motherboard has gone bad and needs a replacement

If they flash in some sequence . The the problem could be with one of the internal components.

For more information on the same you can visit www.support.dell.com

Dell Inspiron 2200; Win XP pro; detect router but no connect


Have you change settings on your router? if not try to disconnect and reconnect your dell computer. if still not working. turn off both laptop, turn off the router and modem. wait for 10-20 seconds then turn on the modem first, and if the modem is stable, turn on the router, and if it is stable, turn on the dell computer and try to connect. If still fails, try to delete wireless profile adn recreate it. If still fails, check device manger if there is a problem in your wireless driver. If still cannot connect, perform system restore.

I have no sound on my dell xps m140 laptop


Check if the computer is on mute.

Then try to plug in a headphone check if it will
make any sound then if not update the audio driver.

If that's not working try to check if the right device is selected under the sound properties in control panel.

If that is still not working run the diagnostics in the computer, you can access that by f12 you will run into a first part of the test which may take aroun 10 mins then it will ask you to continue the remaining test press no then after that it will ask you to press any to boot to the partition then hit enter after that it
will ask you on what kind of diagnostics you want to run, select on custom test,. under custom test you will see all the items you have in your computer, select speakers or audio then it will perform a test
in your speakers if it make a sound then there is something wrong with your windows you might wanna back up your file, if it still does not make any sound you'll need to replace the speakers.

Hope this helps!

Dell Inspiron 2200 cant connect to internet


go to support.dell.com and download the modem driver to an external media (cd, thumb drive, etc.).
then right click 'my computer' and go to properties then device manager. you should be able to go to the modem and update the driver from a specific location and then point it to the external media you have downloaded the driver to.

Error code 1046: new hard drive, still problems


since the keyboard and dvd are on different controllers it may be the motherboard but then I have seen weird things when memory goes bad. I would download memtest on another computer and burn it to cd and run it from bootup and test the memory first. If not the memory then motherboard is a likely answer

No sound


Had this problem awhile back. I just had to re install the software program for my sound card. Then I had to turn on my speakers using my sound control pannel. Found out that my sound had been disconnected that way.
