Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook

1 Answer

Computer will boot up and then go off in about 5 minutes

The battery was replaced about a month ago because it was going bad and would not hold a charge anymore. When I replaced it, it worked and I could work without being plugged in for a little bit. Then is started not working and tellign me that I needed to plug-in because the battery was low when I was already plugged in. Now, it will come on and then about 5 minutes later it is like it loses power. The OS is not crashing...no blue screen of death or anything. It loses all power and all the lights turn off.

What should I do?

My dell inspiron mini 10 cums on with a beeping sound and d screen just comes on without showing nothing but jus a the light...i have visited some shops and they say its a hardware problem and i need to...


Just because you got it 4 months ago does not mean it can't have problems. Good thing is you are still under the manufacturers one year warranty.

What type of laptop is it? What operating system?

See if one of the steps below helps solve your problem.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Laptop wont boot up


Hello,You must not have anythinghooked up to the computer not a printer telephone cord for modem nothing.

You must remove the battery and the poweradapter.

You hold the power button down for two minutesto purge out the residual memory and power.

Then you plug only the power adaper in and tryto boot up.Sometimes you have to hold the power button down a little longer toget it to boot.

If it does not boot then try unplugging the cordand hold it down another two minutes.

Try again with just the battery.

If neither work you may have a bad battery aswell as power cord or possibly just a bad power cord that is not charging thebattery.
Pleaselet me know if you have any further questions or concerns.Alsoplease rate it if you like the answer it helps alot.Thanks.

Acer Aspire 5738Z won't hold charge


Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

My power cord does not stay charging while plugged in. Normally I hear the beeping as it conects and disconnects, up to 20 times a minute. Do I have a bad power cord? Is the best result just to purcharse a...


If it keeps connecting and disconnecting, it could be either the power adapter or the motherboard, but chances are it's the power adapter (and that's the cheaper solution too). You can usually get a new power adapter for $15 or $20, and that should take care of your problem.

I have an acer aspire 9300 which will not boot up.


Try removing the battery and booting the unit with the battery removed. The fact that you say the battery is bad leads me to believe it has shorted. If there are any problems with any devices such as the battery, fan, ram, wireless card, dvd or hard drive the unit will not boot. You should also remove the cd, ram, wireless card and the HDD. With those items removed if there are no other problems your unit will boot as far as the BIOS and then prompt with a message saying there is no operating system. This would eliminate the motherboard as the problem. If your unit does not boot to the prompt you have a fan problem or a motherboard problem. At this point you would have to remove the bottom cover and try to boot while watching the fan for movement. No movement, replace fan. Movement, replace motherboard. It it does boot to the prompt try reinstalling the HDD and booting. If it won't boot then the HDD is bad and would need replaced and formated with the original factory discs. If it boots with the HDD, try installing the ram and booting. Same procedure until you find the bad part. This will take some time but should narrow the problem to the bad part. Let me know if you need more help.

My new HP notebook won't turn on. I've had it for one month. There is a light on the side where it is plugged in, but it won't turn on


Unplug the AC adaptor. Remove the battery. Hold down the start button for 1 minute. Replace the battery and plug in the AC adapter. The computer should reboot.

Battery will not charge.


Either the battery is bad, or the battery charging circuit in the laptop is bad. To be able to judge, you will need to replace the battery is a one that is known to be working fine & see if it will be charged.
If it charges fine, then your battery needs to be replaced with a new one. If the test battery did not charge as well, then the battery charging circuit in the laptop is defective & needs to be repaired.

Battery failure


Yes perhaps you can be sure if you BIOS up to date. latest version of BIOS is v1.20. This version has several important fixes including critical battery wake up. You can obtain the BIOS from Toshiba support website. I am adding the direct link for your convenience.

BIOS update is a critical process that you should close other applications and make sure computer is on AC power. the update process takes few minutes.

If the Issue persists after BIOS update you can think about replacing the battery, Just to remind you that usually brand new laptops warranty covers the battery for a year. So you have said that its only 11 months, you can think about using warranty.

BSoD, Garbled Screen, Boot Failure.


If you are getting garbage on the screen before windows tries to load the laptop probably has a bad motherboard.

It's possibly only the video output is going bad on it, try hooking it to an external monitor and see if you get the same weird stuff on that screen.

Good luck, let me know how it goes
