Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop will not power up.

My neighbor asked me to take a look at her laptop. She has a Inspiron 2200. She told me that her daughter had spilled some kind of liquid she was not sure if it was soda or water. Just from looking at it I could rule out it was not soda the laptop is not sticky from soda so we can say it was water. When you power it up the 4 lights right above the keyboard will light up and then the first one will stay on and the third light will blink for about 10 seconds and the laptop will shut down.

I have been messing it for a couple of days now and now am getting frustrated with it.

Can anyone help?

Two things to try; 1- remove the battery and start on AC only, 2- remove the memory and try one at a time. You might be able to find diagnostic light codes at Dell's support site for this machine. I'm going to say that this is a motherboard issue, and it's probably fried. Laptops and liquid don't mix well.

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


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.

Corrupt & Locked Bios


When you flash the bios (normally from a floppy drive) it should overwrite anything that is there.
In this case you must boot from the floppy. Unfortunately, with a laptop you don't have that option.
I suggest you put the bios flashing utility that you probably downloaded with your bios update file on a flash drive. I think your laptop has the ability to boot from that.
Anyway, on startup, press F12 until you get the boot options and try that.
I take it that you know the support site URL, but just in case, it's support.dell.com

Battery plugged in, but wont charge


This can be either a bad battery or a bad dc port on the system board. No other way to tell for sure without swapping parts like trying a new battery. Can you take the battery out and run the laptop off the dc power cord?

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.

My laptop wont come on (Dell Inspiron 2200)


I have experinced the same issue with the Dell laptops.

My remedy was to purchase a new power supply..(This is the name of the power cord that came with your laptop). You can purchase the power cord from any computer store.

Ask he sales person if you can try the new power cord prior to leaving the store just to make sure this solution works.

I hope this solution works for you as well.
