    I have the same problem. Mine has the lights on the top light up (Caps, Num Lock, Power, and battery charging light). Those lights come on, but nothing on the screen, or movement from the fan, CD-Rom, or HDD. After a couple seconds all of the lights turn back off. The peculiar thing I found is while the battery light comes on when the laptop is plugged in as per usual, it turns off too when the other lights flip off too then only the one light turns back on a few seconds later.

Hello mi problem is wen i turn on mi lapton dell ispiron 2200 apear no bootable devices strike f1 to retry boot, f2 for set up utility, wath i can do? windows xp

Your hard drive's Master Boot Record might be the problem. If it was corrupted then the bios will not see a bootable hard drive.

Three things you have to do in order to solve this.

1. purchase a 2.5" external enclosure, remove the hard drive and put it in there.
2. purchase another 2.5" hard drive for the laptop and reinstall Windows.
3. once the reinstall is done, plug the enclosure into the laptop by the usb cable and copy your data to the new hard drive.

I'm trying to get on to my log on page on my dell inspiron laptop 2200 but it says there are no bootable devices, what do I do?

Sounds like either your hard drive is bad or you need to go into your setup by pressing f12 when your screen shows dell when starting up and check your boot order, make sure your hard drive is listed in the boot order, if not your hard drive is fried.. if so , make sure your 1st boot is your hard drive. Also make sure you don't have anything in your cdrom drive or a flash drive in your usb port.

Hope it's just your boot order and not your hard drive!

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

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.

My dell inspiron loads the dell logo but wont go any further

When the logo appears press F2 immediately and you will get into BIOS settings. Check to make sure that under BOOT DEVICE or DRIVE CONFIGURATION that a hard drive is listed. If it is then listen when you turn the laptop on that the drive is making some sound.
The drive may be bad but it also may have a corrupt start up file which can often be repaired using an install CD.
If you have important data you want to save, I recommend you get the drive out of the computer and use a portable back up drive case/connector to transfer the data to another computer. If the drive is just beginning to fail, this may be your last chance to save important data.
Let me know if I can be of additional help.

Cd rom problems

I just replaced the CD drive in my 2200, the eye went out. You can check to see if it's the drive or drivers by uninstalling the drivers from the device manager, then reboot. It will find the drive and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't fix it, then the drive is bad. The drivers for optical drives are very simlpe, some times they will glitch and need to be reinstalled, but most of the time it's the drive that has gone out.
