The procedure is fairly simple. Remember to use care when removing the bezel; prying with light but steady pressure.

Below is a link to the service manual for your device.

Some keys don work


Hi:
Most likely you need a new keyboard. They are relatively inexpensive, about $15 on ebay. They are not too hard to change, either

Touchpad not working


Hello, my best solution would be to check ebay and order one there. If you are familiar with removing the power button bezel, do so and remove the keyboard as well. Then check the connection for the mouse. Its a small little ribbon cable coming from the mouse area.
Here is a direct link you can get these parts from:

I hope you have a great day, Please rate my solution.

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!

Do you still have the dell diagnostics cd and the drivers and utilities disk, you can press f12 and boot to the cd and then run the diagnostics, if not its either your cable is not connected anymore and you need to reseat the cable, you can follow these instructions http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins6400/en/sm/keyboard.htm#wp1111863 or http://tinyurl.com/fq6m5 if after reseatting the keyboard and still it wont work then you need to purchase a keyboard for your system.
