You'll have to take the screen out of it's housing (involves taking the screen entirely off the laptop, and then removing the bezel around the glassy area by removing the screws under the little circles of plastic) and remove it from the hinges and then finally, you'll be able to see a sticker on the back that has the actual model number of the screen. be sure that it's an exact match to the exact model number. Even if the connector fits, the controller might be different and it won't work at all. Compare pictures, compare model numbers, try to see if they'll guarantee it working on your exact model of laptop (unlikely, but it's worth trying).

See this document by Dell about how to take the screen out. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully.

My dell inspiron 6400 has small horz line on screen


If you have tried this with an external monitor (and the line is not there)
then the problem is either the connection on your display cable or (more likely) a fault on your LCD panel. If it's still under warranty I would let Dell take care of it.
If you want to do it yourself, you need to get a replacement LCD panel, take the screen apart (the top half of the laptop) and switch out the LCD panel. Some small Phillips head screwdrivers are required, the screw heads on hinges etc. are tiny.
While this is not an overly difficult process, it may prove daunting to some people. Most computer repair shops like mine would charge $30-45 for labor on this plus the part, which according to ebay will run about $75. Make certain you get the correct size, as there was a 14.1" and a 15.5" model (They are not interchangeable). Screen size is measured diagonally across the actual screen and does not include the trim.

When you press the power button, no lights, fans, beeps, anything?

Is the power jack moving around? If not, I would check the charger and cord to make sure power is getting through to the plug that goes into the jack.

Memory stick pro not recognized any more by dell inspiron 6400


I suggest going into the control panel/device manager and removing all the usb devices.
Restart the computer and let it find the devices again. That might help.
Also--have you tried the stick in another computer just to make sure it works?

Here are my recommendations for this issue:

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.

Dell inspiron 6400 screen is fading


Sounds like the backlight is going out. Youĺl need to replace the LCD screen. You can find them on ebay. Just make sure you purchase the correct one for your laptop. You will need to take out the screen to see who makes it and the number. Go to dell.com/support to find your manual, if you feel like you can do it yourself.

Good Luck!
