Dell 6400 when connected to Digital projector forces zoom to unreadable levels
This is a tough issue - so I throwing out the challnge here!
My Dell 6400 only plays up when connected to a digital projector - brand does not matter.
The display adjusts and projects OK,
However, within the application the zoom level adjust AUTOMATICALLY and always adjust itself back- it seem like a "DELL feature".
In Internet Explorer 7 and Mozilla the zoom level is so small that the screen cannot be read. In Office 2007 applications, the zoom level is 400%

It seems as if this is 1 of 2 things. Either a sick of RAM, after heating up, fails, or the actual socket itself is bad. If it's the RAM, it's cheap, buy a new stick, if it's the socket itself, you would have to have Dell fix it, for a steep price, or use the remaining sockets with larger sticks of RAM if possible.
According to the specs for this laptop it comes with Vista. Because of that I am assuming you have put XP on it in place of Vista and I am also assuming that you just need to install some additional drivers from Dell. Click Here to go to Dell's driver listing for the Inspiron 6400 and make sure Win XP is selected as the OS and download the correct Video driver.

If your video output works fine when connected to an external monitor, then the issue is with the LCD display panel. I’m afraid the only way to fix this is to have the LCD panel replaced. Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please rate your experience. Thank You.
