Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

1 Answer

Optical Drive My keyboard shortcut to open the optical drive stopped working the day after the warranty expired, that was about two months ago, maybe more. Can you advise if this is a known bug with the Inspiron 6400? Brendan

    Thank you for your help. Have thought that it's probably about time to flatten it and rebuild again anyway so that may yet yield my solution.

    Cheers

We have a disk stuch in a dell inspiron 1318, there is no OS on it right now. how can we get disk out? there is no place to stick the paper clip


Remove the optical drive, and then open the drive. Remove the disk.

With most laptops this is a simple job.
Turn the laptop over on it's top, remove one Philips head screw, pull the optical drive out.
Remove 2 to 4 screws from a cover on the optical drive, and ease the tray open.

With the Inspiron 1318 Notebook PC it is more difficult.

A) Remove the Display Assembly.
(Removal covers removing the Display Assembly as a whole unit, off of the laptop)

B) Remove the Keyboard.

C) Remove the Palm Rest. (Top cover under the Keyboard. Your palms rest on it when you use the touchpad)

D) Remove the Optical Drive

Less than a year into ownership camera would not turn on and is non-responsive to charging. Never dropped or abused. Replaced battery but still wont turn on or accept charge. i don"t know warranty...


Go here for warranty look up:

http://support.en.kodak.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/19879

If by chance your warranty expired 10 days ago, try reasoning with Kodak about your issue and how the failure occurred 30 days ago and you just now got around to repairing the main unit, not battery. It happens to all of us, I'm sure they'll cut you some slack on the 10 days.

Now if your warranty expired months ago... :(

Use LogitechMX3000 with optical mouse. The mouse has stopped working. Keyboard OK. I have replaced batteries. Help please How can I use keyboard to do mouse functions whilst mouse does not work?


Hi, I suggest you to contact the Logitech support for a replacement this is an hardware failure and it's covered by warranty terms.
If you are not under warranty you still can contact them as I know for instance in Europe they can offer you some good deal on nowadays products for out of warranty people.

Several months ago my Mac Mini G4 stopped recognizing both the internal hard drive and the optical drive. In the system profiler nor Disk Utility nothing is recognized under the ATA bus. I have been...


Hi, has this mini been opened up to add more memory?
I would suggest that before you conclude that the ATA bus is damaged, open the mini up and see if the ATA connector is still connected to the motherboard. (It's the same connector for both drives).

DVD/CD Bluray Stopped working


Since you are under warranty, I would suggest not trying to do anything yourself if your not sure of your capabilities. Get somebody tech savy to do either one of those options you mentioned. Remove Hard drive, or bad optical drive. Another solution is just back up all your data on a removable drive, and then you can just reinstall the data back when you get the drive back. Depending on how much data you have it shouldnt take long to get back to your settings. It would be a good idea to start backing up anyway if your concerned about losing data and settings since it is almost inevitable eventually in time.
