Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

1 Answer

Dell inspiron 6400 start up problem.

After pressing power button screen remains black and blank. Nothing can be done on the pc. Then if you switch off using power button and restart, sometimes it becomes ok after 1 time and some times after several repeatitions of switching off and on.
I changed my battery after this issue as well but even the new one dosent help.
Waiting for some solution desperately

thanks,
Anand

Can you hear the hard drive spinning and the computer appears to be running but you you get a blank screen. If you look at the LCD screen at an acute angle and you see a dim image. then you have a backlight problem. To determine if you have a video card problem or a lcd screen problem, Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first and then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.
Get back to me with the results of these tests and any error messages etc. so I can advise you.

Hi, i have a problem with my Dell Inspirion 6400, after replacing Motherboard laptop won't boot up, after pressing power button, all 3 lights comes up (caps, num and scrl lock) and than back off, power...


I would hook up an external monitor to see if the laptop is working. If it is working fine then you must have a connection problem where the LCD plugs into the motherboard. I am willing to bet it is the LCD cable mot seated correctly. If it does not work on an external monitor try switching the memory chips one at a time if you have 2. Everything you mention indicates it is booting but no video. Good Luck Phil

Machine is going into standby. When you open the lid, press the power button for about two seconds. the machine should come back to full operation and after logging in, you should be back exactly where you left off. I have similar model I am using now to answer your query and I have just done this. No problem. Good Luck, Ian.

Laptop dosent start up, remain blank and black, but starts up after several switch off's and on


Have you tried clearing some of the things off of your laptop? It may be that there are too many things on your hard drive. There's a really good freeware program called CCleaner. Download that, and it'll do the rest for you after you choose what you want to clear. Good luck.

DELL inspiron 6400 not switched on


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

Laptop doesnt boot only power ligth comes out when press on buttom a ligth comes out but nothing on the screen i dont hear the fan keep going.


Maybe there are some problem in your start button (the button wire connect to mainboard is Loosening.

Please press the start button for about 3-4 seconds then see it would start. Always it may solve the problem, this happend to my inspiron 6400 too, after used for years the start button failure. It shows only power lamp lights green but the other light cant light red.

If no, maybe your must change a power supply, as the lower volt current cant start all the device.

Touchpad


Hi Ayubehenzo,
You will need to run 32 bit dell diag's.
You would need start the pc and the tap F12 button on the Dell Logo. Select the last option diagnostics. On the option where it says that were color bars displayed type "N" once the tests are done press "N" where it says do you wanna continue the remaining memory tests. Once this is done you will get a message loading dell diagnostic utility partition. you will now need to choose the custom test and then need to run a test on the touchpad. If this still doesnt resolve your issue you will need to call Dell Technical Support.
