Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook

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%

This renders the 6400 useless at presentations.

Can anyone help?

This is a common problem with an application called intellitype or Intellitype Pro.

You can turn off zoom in the intelliType application. This will fix it.

Dell Inspiron 6400 throws up DIMM A socket fault after running ok for 1-2 hours


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.

Missing VGA out port signal


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.

Here are my recommendations for this issue:

1. Reseat the battery.
2. Remove All External Components
3. Check the battery connectors on the battery and the system. Examine the connector on the battery and the system. Make sure that there is no physical damage and that it is clear of debris.
4. Remove All External Components
5. Try a known-good battery in the system, if available.

Display after rain went black


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.

Get a laptop to talk to projector


  1. Are you using the SVGA connector on the laptop or the S-Video?
  2. If using the SVGA (normal computer monitor connector) then you have to "toggle" the proper Function Key. e.g FN+F5 on my laptop to change from internal LCD to external or both.
