Question about Dell Latitude E6400 Notebook
Initially there was no display once I connected the replacement monitor. After that I saw smoke. Took off the battery immediately.
Be sure you had installed a compatible LCD on your system. take out all the connection of the lcd and try to figure out where the smoke came from, in might be from the inverter or from the supply.

SOURCE: Dell D600 LCD issue
What I've found on two laptops I've worked on in the past two years is that in a case like this, there is a little pin near the power button (or on the strip up near the display) that tells the laptop when the monitor is closed. If that pin gets stuck, the computer will think it's shut all of the time. The sensor is only active in normal mode of windows with the drivers installed (if it's in safe mode or VGA mode the sensor does not work until you raise the resolution. the sensor doesn't work at all if you boot from a knoppix cd.)
You may be able to just flick the pin and get it unstuck, but in some cases you have to remove it all togther.
To remove it, turn the lapotp off. lean the monitor back as far as it can go (don't force it). You then need to carefuly pry up the strip that the power button is on (ussually there is a space you can pry open on the left or right side of the strip depending on the model laptop; be very careful not to break anything). You can then pop it out with a small knife or tweesers and clip the strip back down.
If you don't feel comfortable doing this, then find someone who is.
I hope this helps someone.

You may be able to get a battery charger but its rare.
If you do wish to use the AC adapter, take care with positive and negative. Also the voltage of the battery is actually lower than the AC adapter in order to get charged. I don't know what is going to happen if you do choose to use AC adapter as battery. 75% chance that it will work.

If your old battery was doing the same (not charging), then is is because the charger is not charging the battery. Do you have a friend with a Dell laptop? Maybe you can use a borrowed charger to test and see if it will charge the batteries. To answer your question , no Dell does not have anything built in to prevent you from using a 3rd party battery.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

I HAVE POSTED THE SOLUTION FOR THIS BEFORE. ON THE LEFT REAR THE SCREW FROM BOTTOM OF UNIT TO THE LCD. LOOK INSIDE WHERE THE TOP AND BOTTOM GO TOGETHER YOU WILL SEE A PIECE OF ALUMINUM TAPE IF IT STICKS OUT PAST THE BOSS TOWARD THE PC BOARD. WHEN YOU MOVE LCD THERE IS ENOUGH FLEX FOR IT TO SHORT TO PC BOARD. TRIM THIS OFF AND YOUR PROBLEMS WILL BE SOLVED. CAUTION REMOVE BATTERY AND UNPLUG FROM AC BEFORE THE ABOVE. BOBBY

Sounds like your computer has just bit the dust, do your self a favor and purchase a new one. This time buy an XP, it might be a little bit more, but you get what you pay for.
