Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell Inspiron 2200 won't start

My daughter's computer stopped turning on, the battery doesn't seem to be charging.  Would this keep it from coming on at all, even when plugged up?  There are four lights beside the on switch that should  light up, only the far left one comes on steady and the second from the right flashes 9 times and then they go out.(they are green)  I figure I need a new battery, but don't want to buy one if it's something else. Thanks, Sheila

First thing I would try is to unplug the machine, remove the battery and clean the contacts on the battery and in the battery housing with a pencil eraser. Blow out the shavings and reinstall battery - the way it sounds is that there may be dirt or corrosion causing an interference between the computer and battery contacts - for charging and powering up.

My dell inspiron 2200 does not recognize the battery, therefore, it does not charge it and the battery light continues to blink orange. Can you help me please?


The red light is indicating that there is a battery in the system that does not respond to charging.
if the computer doest regognize a battery at all i would nor react with orange blinking.
Start the computer without the battery in place,
only have the power cord connected,
There will be no blinking.
Dell use the "blink" to tell the user its time to buy a new battery.
If this helped, Please vote!

When i am starting up my dell inspiron 2200 i just bought from a friend i get this message battery not identified and the thing is it says it is charged but i unplug it and it cuts off just like that i...


Sounds more like a hardware issue, see if you can check the battery with a multi-meter and see just how charged it is, if it's fully charged then it's most likely the battery sensor needing to be replaced.

Dell Inspiron Laptop powers off by itself.


Hi,

This could be a couple of issues. One, the computer could be over heating and shutting down. Ask her if her laptop was warm and if the fan was constantly running. The second possiblity is the cord that plugs into the laptop has become loose and once wiggled will cause it to turn off because the battery doesn't hold a charge. Have her put the laptop on the table and with the computer running wiggle the cable. If it shuts down its a bad connector. In this case find someone with mad soldering skills and re-solder the connector on the motherboard.

If this sounds like a good solution a high score is appreciated.

Labtop not charging


Try removing the battery and see if the laptop powers on. If it still doesn’t power on then either the motherboard is defective or the AC adaptor may have a broken wire in the cable.

Dell Inspiron 2200 Charger Malfunction


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.
