Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook
Have tried the f-12 thing and retry Boot etc. Nothing works. What would be my easiest and cheapest remedy
My Laptop Inspiron 2200 With Windows XP only boot with the C drive when I remove the CD-DVD-CD drive. Otherwise ,I am asked to go to Bios to reconfigure the booting order.
The CD-dvd can not be pick-up by Plug and Play .
As a result I can only use the Laptop without the CD-DVD
When I reconnect the DVD it will not boot.
I have inspected every single pin in the DVD and from the Motherboard I can not see any damages
What do you think is the problem?

Most likely a HDD failure. Take the HDD out, see if you can boot to a XP CD or resource CD. If you can, then replace the HDD
