Posted on Feb 02, 2009
I had the same issue with the inspiron 6400. no sounds or no fans spinning. the leds would light up for 3 seconds and then off again. i tried new ram / processor / unplugging components / reseating components. no luck at all. found out that the problem was the mainboard. i found that there was an inductor just below the cpu socket that wasn't functioning. i unsoldered it and took it off the board, cleaned the lans and then resoldered it back. straight away i noticed it slight hum from it when i switched it on, so i then proceeded to plug in the processor / ram and monitor and and happy days it posted the dell splash screen :) hobbled all back together laptop is fully functional again. hope this helps.
