DELL inspiron 6400 not switched on

Hey,

I had a problem with my DELL inspiron 6400 - When I switched on.. the led indicators (left side of the panel) glows for a second and goes off only the led on the right side of the panel glows. Nothing is displayed on the screen. When I performed the diagnostic checks, it shows that the pc is all right. I observed this problem two days before and it got corrected automatically. Now again the same problem occured. can anybody help me with suggession?

Thank you

    If you can't see anythign on the display how are you doing a diagnostic check?

    Intermintent failures like that can be explained by a loose cable inside the machine. In which you should contact dell support http://support.dell.com/

This is a no boot issue. Youre saying that you can perfectly run the PSA diagnostics but doesnt load Windows rather it stays on black screen, meaning the boot loader of Windows failed to load. You need to reinstall windows on your computer

The user manual will supply an in-depth explanation of the led-indicators, aswell as there are normally small icons assigned to each light, sometimes engraved in the plastics, normal lights to be active at average usage are the Power led indicator, will glow as long as device is turned on, the Wireless led indicator will glow when the wireless network module is active, the CPU led indicator will flash occasionally when system is idle, and rapidly when system is active under load, and the Battery led indicator will be active when device is running on battery power.

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!
