Hi There, the issue you are experiencing can be on account of both software and hardware malfunction. Proper and systematic shut down is a prerequisite for a smart functioning of any laptop. Failing to achieve a systematic turnoff can cause serious issues in future and it is advisable to backup your data. This hazard usually has its root in the software part of the system. But seldom it also arises due to hardware malfunctioning. Let us have an insight into some of the main causes of your problem what you can do to resolve them:
1. Just find out whether you opted for a Fast Shut Down feature of the Windows as this complication mainly occur by activating this mode. To deactivate fast shutdown mode, just click on the Tools from accessories menu and there you will find System Configuration Utility (SCU). You can disable the fast shut down mode from SCU. Henceforth you can restart your laptop again.
2. This problem may also arise due to extremely slow speed of your system. Please make sure that your system is operating on an optimum speed to support the various operations of your laptop. You can use the system utilities to free up disk space and clean up temporary folder.
3. You might have installed a corrupted or damaged file which is adversely affecting the operation of the system on a whole. So thoroughly scan your system to eradicate such files from it. Also try starting up the system in Safe Mode and then try to turn it off. If you are able to turn off the system in safe mode then the issue lies with software that you may have installed. Try uninstalling any recently installed software or device driver that may be causing this issue.
4. If all of the above steps fail to resolve the issue, please perform a System Restore to a date when your Laptop used to shutdown properly.
5. If the problem continues to occur even after applying the above methods then your laptop might be in a grip of some hardware complication which is hard to identify from here. In this case it is prudent get your laptop checked by efficient engineers

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.
