    I have the exact same problem, although I have an Inspiron 600M. Mine just started to do this this past week, and I am wonding if it is hopeless to even get it fixed.

Hi tanya_alina,

I'm sorry to inform you that if that's how the lights acts when you try to turn your computer on, then the motherboard needs to be replaced. It could be caused by an improper shutdown or power failure. Call Dell and have it replaced if it still has a warranty. If not, then call Dell at this number 1800-2884410 to have an estimate on how much it will cost to have the motherboard replaced.

Hope you find this information useful.

Thanks,
Karlox™ :)

Let it cool down.. Put it in the freezer(in a plastic bag for 20 minutes with the battery out of it. Then allow it to warm up for 10 minutes. these laptops are not great at playing games because they overheat..you should get an external graphics card if you get this running again..

Heres a link to a place where you can get a better graphics card

Hi,
If the the four lights on the computer come and then go off. Then these are the diagnostics lights telling that the motherboard has gone bad and needs a replacement

If they flash in some sequence . The the problem could be with one of the internal components.

Dell Inspiron 2200; Win XP pro; detect router but no connect


Have you change settings on your router? if not try to disconnect and reconnect your dell computer. if still not working. turn off both laptop, turn off the router and modem. wait for 10-20 seconds then turn on the modem first, and if the modem is stable, turn on the router, and if it is stable, turn on the dell computer and try to connect. If still fails, try to delete wireless profile adn recreate it. If still fails, check device manger if there is a problem in your wireless driver. If still cannot connect, perform system restore.

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.
