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?

Shuts down after 5 minutes blinks green


Once the set shuts down, wait for the unit to stop blinking. Once it stops hold in the input and menu buttons for 5 seconds. The TV will then give you an error code. A 6-1 or a 1-8 error code would indicate a bad Color wheel. Which I think is the problem you have.

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.

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.

Computer won't start normaly


This is most likely do to a bad stick of RAM.
Try taking out all but one stick of ram and try booting. If it still doesn't boot try changing the stick out with another one you pulled (might be the stick you left in that is the problem)

In the case that it is bad RAM go to your local computer shop and get some new RAM for the computer or check if Gateway will replace the RAM.

If there is any display that comes on the monitor such as a 2 digit code try searching that or posting here with the code.

Siren Edge 4 gig Boot error,


Siren's software support is bad, but you can call them: 254.224.0222

Sometimes reformatting a player can cause key system files to be lost - this particular mp3 player does not have a recovery tool or a firmware upgrade that I know of, so you can try the Windows Recovery Method: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Let me know how it turns out.

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
