Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook

2 Answers

Can Dell Inspiron 2200 screen be replaced/repaired? How costly?

Can the screen on a Dell Inspiron 2200 be repaired or replaced? I dropped daughter's laptop just hard enough to damage plasma display...completely scrambled. Computer still working well otherwise; have been using the laptop in stationary mode via a desktop monitor. Need to get mobile again soon before daughter starts college in January.

I greatly appreciate any advice, and if repair/replacement is indeed possible, appreciate ballpark estimates on cost for this type repair or replacement. I was laid off several months ago so need to shop wisely. :-)

Advice greatly appreciated!

If the screen is cracked, that can range from $200 and up. If the screen is not cracked and the image is garbled or scramble, then the Price of repair would be at least as much. Laptops are expensive to repair. Bear in mind, They are mass produced, not mass repaired. In my opinion, your money might be better invested in a newer machine.

You can replace the screen yourself by buying one from sites like eBay here >>>>>>>>>>

Or you can take the laptop to a repair store for it to be replaced and fitted. Doing it this way will cost substantially more than replacing the screen yourself. You won't get much change from $200.

You can however order a screen yourself and take to be fitted, you may save around 20-25% of the above price although prices do vary depending if they are second hand or brand new.

My Dell Inspiron 2200 shuts off whenever I pick it up/or place pressure on the lower right hand side (side closest to the touchpad).... why is this happening and about how much will it cost to repair?

This might be due to internal loose ribbon cable connections. These might just need to be reseated.
As for the cost, it varies depending on who services the device.

If you would like, you can refer to this service manual from Dell & do it yourself, or ask a friend who is familiar with computers to do it:

My dell inspiron 2200 starts up and befor reaching the windows page shuts down with just a clicking sound coming from the speaker. the screen is totally blank (black) although the indicator light stays on....

Get your System Install Disc and place it in the DVD drive. Try and get it to boot from the CD. If it boots from the CD then you have a system error and when the menu requesting if you want to repair or replace your system version, select repair. That should get you out of trouble without losing data.

Dropped my laptop- screen cracked

I would recommend locating a local computer repair shop that doesn't have a well known name around your town.

They tend to keep many extra parts of laptops lying around and it's as simple as finding a match and replacing the LCD panel.

The smaller shops may have better deals than the larger, but it might be smart to contact Dell as well on the same matter.

If the Fn+X keystoke doesn't resolve, then a motherboard replacement is required. On this model, the cost of repairs may be excessive and a replacmnt system may be a consideration. The motherboard is $100-$150 and if you can't replace it yourself, the labor is about the same price. If it were mine, I'd consider buying a replacement.

Screen wont light up

Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 2200. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor display is dark, problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
Here’s a link to disassemble the LCD unit:
