Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
I tend to belive theres more to it than that. Our lights have been flashing now for over 12 months and we have done nothing to fix it, Manual says overheating but most suffering with this problem will tell you lights start flashing as soon as computer is turned on so it seems no overheating (unless instantaneous) Our L-ion 9 battery still charges to 99%. Tks to all pros and semi pros for their help- Dummy
Ok, probably not the battery. With Dell machines, once they overheat to a significant level, it locks an overheating code into the bios, so you will have the light codes at start up. I've had three C840 machines with an overheating issue come through my shop. In order to get the machine working again, you will have to fix the problem that caused the overheating, then there is a download at Dell's site to clear the code. If the initial problem isn't fixed the code won't clear. On the machines that I worked on, 1- had a hair wound in the fan and the other 2 had bad fans one burned up the processor. I believe the 6400 and the C840 is basically the same machine. It's been a while since I worked on those machines so I can't remember exactly where the clearing download is at Dell's site, I do remember reading several forums at Dell on the subject. I hope this approach helps a little more than my last. If you have any more questions please ask.
