My dell inspiron 6400 lap top will not do anything when i swich it on only show up the dell screensaver can u help iv tryed swoping the hard drive and it dosent help

I had a similar problem. I fitted a new hard drive loaded windows and on the first re boot i had no OS again.
I went into the bios checked the boot order and also the hard drive booting options. My settings had unticked the hard drive as a bootable drive. When i ticked it and installed the original HD it worked again.
At least i have a spare Hard drive in the draw :)

Labtop will not log into windows

I assume you mean, lap top :). It can sit on the TOP of your LAP, hence the nick-name. It's actually called a NOTEBOOK PC, but most ppl call it laptop anyhow :).

Since you do not explain what you DO see when you start the machine, I can only assume certain things.

First, we will assume the hardware is fine. Mouse, kbd, hard drive, cdrom, screen, system board, everything "starts" perfectly, and you see the DELL screen. After this point, there could be several bugs. You could have a corruption on the hard drive data area. (Although the hd might be reading as OK, the platters inside the device could be faulty, causing data loss/corruption.) Have you tried another hard drive? Also, have you used your Dell diagnostic cd's to run a test? Those discs come with each new dell. If you got it used, you can order them from

Now, assuming you pass the tests, then it is time to wipe and reload Windows.

Assuming you failed a test, you write down the error code, contact Dell, and see what that error indicates. Sometimes its just bad memory, and you can "get outta jail free" for only 35 bucks. (ok not QUITE free, but very inexpensive, considering). Sometimes its a failed board and you'll need to scrap it on ebay for parts, or drop about 200 bucks for a refurbished board. (sorry, but it happens).

I hope the only issue you have is a bad hard drive. That will give you the chance to not only replace your drive, but, UPGRADE it to a much higher storage capacity.

GOOD news is, if you DO have to replace the entire machine, the Dell OUTLET ( has NIIIIICE refurbished computers at less than HALF their original cost! You can sometimes get a $1400 notebook (with EVERYTHING) for about $600 bucks! I dont mean a ****-top either, I mean a 64 bit dual core CPU with 4 gigs ram, 320 gig SATA hard drive and DVD burner with Wireless built in! You can take it to taco bell and play world of warcraft during lunch! Or use the built in webcam for face to face meetings! I got one on my tax rebate and still had enough money left to pay my rent. Course, my gf has swindled it away from me, I never get to use the thing until she has a question, ha ha.

Good luck.

My OS freeze's as soon as i input my password

Hi there.
Sorry but i have to inform you that your hard drive is failing, the error messages that you are getting relate to this fact and is related to the hard drive having unrecoverable bad sectors or immanent hard drive failure.
There is no way you can recover the drive!!
Your only option now would be to buy a new drive for the computer or if the machine is still under warranty take advantage of that and send it in for repair, you will no doubt have to purchase a windows installation disk too.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
