Problem with inspiron 6400 does not ignite sometimes

For weeks I have been having problems when igniting the equipment, is listened to a rare noise and it does not ignite, after last time on several attempts finally ignites, but to the passage of hours the equipment remains inhibited or reset, already it reviews the hard disk with the tool of diagnostics of dell and all this working well. The day of today that it executes again the diagnostic tool of dell, the laptop its again remain inhibited in this process, perhaps that the card mother no longer works. Thanks for your help.

Re: problem with inspiron 6400 does not ignite sometimes

Samj04011, Not sure I understand entirely what problem you are experiencing. I?m assuming you are using ?igniting? to refer to starting the laptop but it?s making some odd noises and takes lots of time to start. Can you give us some additional information such as: -describe the noise in greater detail; is it beeping and if so are they long, short and how many. These may be beep codes which are a series of long or short beeps, the number and order point to specific errors. -What is displayed on the monitor? -What LEDs light up whey you try to start? Once you?ve given us some more information we can start to figure out what is going on.

Where is the michrophone on del inspiron 6400?


Unfortunately the Dell Inspiron 6400 is not equipped with a built in microphone.

You can use an external microphone having a 3.5mm jack by connecting it to the microphone connector found on the right side of the laptop.

Hope to have helped you.

Hi, since having a new BT home hub, my inspiron 6400 will not connect wirelessly unless I do a 'repair' with it. Sometimes it detects broadband but wont connect wirelessly. My son changed the channel...

Most people have to just work out the configuration by them selves BT do offer a lot of support (0800 022 33 22) Their equipement is pretty good and widely used.
By the way the most least used channels are 1,6,and 11 there might be a default but these are the most complete channels which do not overlap(RE;
cnannel 1]--2.412 Centre frequency(ghz)
channel 6]--2,437
channel 11]-2.462

Here are my recommendations for this issue:

1. Reseat the battery.
2. Remove All External Components
3. Check the battery connectors on the battery and the system. Examine the connector on the battery and the system. Make sure that there is no physical damage and that it is clear of debris.
4. Remove All External Components
5. Try a known-good battery in the system, if available.

I can watch movies both online and 'offline'. DVDs, mpeg, avi, and wmv format and more.
