Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook ?

Computer will not turn on even though it is plugged into the outlet. Why? How can I fix this problem?


Answers :

Are there any symptoms other than failure to turn on? Do you hear the computer 'trying' to do anything when you hit the power button?\015\012
\015\012If it simply does not turn on, and you've checked to ensure the outlet is still good to go, then it could only be one of two things that i can think of off-hand:\015\012
\015\0121. Power Supply is dead. If you have another desktop computer that you can borrow from, yank the power supply out of it, cross your fingers that they have the same plug, hook it up and try to turn on again. If it still fails to turn on then the good news is your power supply is most likely good, but your...\015\012
\015\0122. Connection between the power button and the motherboard is faulty/broken/loose/etc. In the front of your PC, usually paired with a USB slot or two, and mic/headphone jack, is a power button connected to a small board connected by a thin wire to the motherboard. This is like a remote-control for power button and such. If the wires come disconnected or loose, the power button simply won't say 'turn on' and you'll experience this problem. \015\012
\015\012Fortunately, a new power supply runs about $60 and a fixing a loose wire costs about 5 minutes. So this is not catastrophic. There are other things that could cause this such as catastrophic motherboard damage (like half of it missing, perhaps) but if something happened to the computer to cause something like that, you probably wouldn't be posting here as it wouldn't be such a mystery :P
