Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook
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.
