First if you are able to see windows logon then it restart again and again then it is windows system files issue for that you need to repair windows with windows disk. You can also try system system restore in safe mode if you are able to enter in safe mode. for that when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode. Then go to startmenu->all programs->acessaries->system tools->system restore. Then set it to previous date. But if you are not able to see windows logo on startup Then reconnect RAM memory. When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALt+F2 key to enter in bios. then load optimal defaults settings. Also disable SATA in IDE configuration then save settings and check. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

    It might be as easy as running a chkdsk /f on the disk if you can find a boot cd like Hirens. www.hirens.org, then look for dos pro5, going into this program will run chkdsk automatically. Another alternative is to take the disk out and hook it with usb/ide cable and run chkdsk against it.

Dell Inspiron 2200 boots up but 1-2 min in the screen goes to a faint black. You can still see the desktop and everything just very faintly. Like a fain transparent black.


Check with your Power Plan or screen saver option, you might have it adjusted to super energy saving to make your battery last longer and have the screen dim, or backlight shut off since you mention it take 1-2 min to boot up ...see if that might help.... If that didn't do the job, I suspect your backlit lighting might be going bad. Let me know what Operating system you are using too. So like I said, check your screen save and if it is set to dim, or shurt off withing a minute or two... set it to something longer to see if that works.

I was trying to hook up my laptop (Dell Inspiron 2200)(windows xp) to my television. I managed to get the laptop to go to the tv screen, but when computer rebooted, I got a black screen and cannot get rid...


use the F8 button before windows starts. as the laptop show the manufacturer's screen. keep tapping it gently and fast until you get froted with the bootup options screen. Select whichever option reads the word "VGA" in it. Then it will boot into windows. Enter the multiple screen setup (could be hard given that screen could show all icons and windows big) and select proper settings. Restart the PC and ensure the options remain active.

Dell inspiron 2200 won't turn on


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
