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


Hi,
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.

Ac power jack not seeing power cord inspiron 6400 when I plug in ac - the light does not light to show ac power and because it is dead I can't turn it on.


YOu are having issue with the motherboard. ther might be a short circuit or bad part on the motherboard that might have caused it not to detect the ac adapter and system will not power on. You need to have motherboard replacement.YOu can contact dell for repair options.

Dell inspiron 2200 will not power on


Check your AC adapter for an LED showing it is getting power from the wall. Make sure you have no external devices connected, then try booting with just the AC adapter, next, just the battery. If still nothing, then your motherboard is probably bad.

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.

Power cord for computer


Looks like you have some issues with the port on the motherboard where the AC adapter is plugged in. Try another AC Adapter cord in, if still the same, then call up Dell to have the motherboard replaced.

Laptop computer won't turn on


Hi tanya_alina,

I'm sorry to inform you that if that's how the lights acts when you try to turn your computer on, then the motherboard needs to be replaced. It could be caused by an improper shutdown or power failure. Call Dell and have it replaced if it still has a warranty. If not, then call Dell at this number 1800-2884410 to have an estimate on how much it will cost to have the motherboard replaced.

Hope you find this information useful.

Thanks,
Karlox™ :)

Pc keeps blowing ac adapters


hi!

the motherboard on your laptop is shorted to the ground. It happens when you unplug the ac adapter cord from the back of the computer a lot. Call Dell's reknowned tech support and ask for the motherboard to be replaced.
