How can i fix BIOS problem on dell c400

Depends on if you still have a bios boot. U need to see while your flashing one. Dell has the flash tool on their site and a step by step follow the directions exactly and read 20 times b4 you attempt. If you have no bios boot at all then the bios chip itself has to be replaced. However you may as well buy a donor with a screen problem make the best out of 2.

My Dell Latitude C400 PC Notebook screen flickers very fast, any ideas? thanks

It can depend on what kind of flickering you are seeing. A very very fast one, that shows more obvious if you look to the side of your screen (instead of directly at it as normal), means your screens 'refresh rate' is most likely wrong.
That's the most likely problem you have, as the inverter will usualy only make a screen flash, not flicker, though they don't usually flash too much before the bulb or inverter can't take the strain and breaks properly.
Sometimes a screens circuit can go slightly faulty (very rare) and cause a slight change in its refresh cycle, and that can cause a high speed flickering too, usually accompanied with a very slight blurring of any images.
The standard setting for a C400 is 1024 x 768 resolution at 60 Hertz, so check your display properties to see that's not been accidentally changed.

The usb of my dell latitude c400 notebook is malfunctioning

Unfortunately, I have seen this many times. One of the major problems with the C400 model was the USB port failing. I have had many of them replaced under warranty, and I have repaired some. The USB port breaks loose from the mother board and stops working. It is possible to SOMETIMES disassemble the laptop enough to get to the port and re-solder the USB port connections. But is is a slow process for experienced people. And it does not work all of the time. i know that this is not the answer that you wanted.

Good luck with it.

DELL BIOS password is unknown for DEL C400

Dell keeps a master code for each of their machines. All you have to do is transfer ownership of the machine into your name, if it isn't already, and give tech support a call, and they'll give you the code over the phone. You can transfer ownership at Dell's support site, there a subcategory on the left of the screen that reads "ownership transfer". Here's a link for the tech support number.

Dell C400 will not boot using LCD screen when cold

I have seen this problem before, after booting to the external monitor go into the display settings and try setting the resolution to 1024 X 768 and the color settng to 16 bit or preferably 32 bit. If you can do this, then shut down the laptop remove the external monitor and try booting on the LCD display. BPCS

Big letters

Try holding the Ctrl Key and scrolling the mouse wheel to reduce the size. You may have magnifier running. Click the Windows plus U to bring up the utility screen and turn it off.
