Where is the "tm" symbol


There is no "tm" symbol key on a keyboard, you need to enter an ALT key to type the trademark symbol.
Hold down the "ALT" key while typing 0153 and it will enter this: ™ when you release the ALT key

Dell inspiron 2200 laptop - what are the 4 lights on top right of keyboard for? the first one is constantly blinking and the others are never lit up


Hi those are your keyboard and status lights

Looking at your laptop from the front the first light on your Right hand side is your scroll lock light and is only on when you press the scroll lock button (the symbol shows a lock with a little down arrow)

The light to the left hand side of that light is your caps lock light and again only turns on when you press the caps lock key (The symbol shows a lock with a A in it)

The light to the left hand side of that is your numeric keypad light (Symbol has a lock with a 9 in it), this comes on when you press the num lock key on your keybaord

Finally the last key is your hard drive light (like a cylinder), this will be flashing most of the time as you use your PC as it is constantly reading and writing data

Laptop is turned off but the lights are still on


Can you describe the symbols that are next to the lights that are still lit?
If your laptop is still attached to mains power (ie your power pack that feeds DC voltage to your laptop) the battery pack may be still charging (indicated by a light) The battery pack is internal to your laptop and this powers your laptop when the power pack is not connected to mains.
Try disconnecting your mains power and see if a light goes off. If it does then that light is the light which indicates charging is in progress.
Other lights that are typical to laptops are:
a. hard drive activity (usually lights when the hard drive is being used) Usually has an adjacent symbol which looks like a metal can or cylinder.
b. bluetooth (wireless connection to other bluetooth devices such as cell phones, other bluetooth devices such as another computer) Adjacent symbol looks like two triangles side by side.
c. sleep (usually lit when your laptop goes to sleep and saving power) This may be covered by the power on lamp mentioned below, and the power light may flash to indicate the laptop is in sleep mode to save battery power.
d. power on (lights when your laptop is ON)
e. battery charging (as described above). There is often a symbol adjacent to this light that looks like a small battery.
Good luck,

On boot up a lock symbol with a '9' is lit & nothing else happens


the "9" inside a lock means that your Num Lock button has been pressed. If all you see is the ">" then maybe you are looking at what's called a DOS prompt, and I have no idea why that would display. Try holding the Power Switch for 10 seconds and restart your computer. Hopefully things will be better, and you know where your Num Lock key is.

Lock symbol


Usually you need to press a key in addition to the lock key. Try using a combination of the lock key and FN or CTRL or SHIFT.

Laptop will not turn on


The two most common causes fot this on the IBM machines are the battery and the memory. Start be removing the battery and starting with the power supply only. Then remove the memory and try each chip one at a time in each slot. If these don't work, then I'm afraid a component has failed in the power management system on the motherboard. Failed power management systems are also common with these, but not as common as a battery or memory failure. If it's the power management system, unfortunately, the motherboard will need replaced.
