Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
Using one of the video listed take the keyboard off and see if the error goes away: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=dell+6400+disassembly&atb=v61-3_a&ia=videos
If it does, then replace the keyboard, if not then you are looking at some more troubleshooting with safemode, eventviewer, etc

uninstall any energy management software provided by dell and then check.if the issue is not resolved then the issue is with the converter board as it is heating up.

You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.
When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.
If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad

1. Shut down the system, remove the battery and the Ac adapter from the computer.
2. Press the power on button for 10 seconds
3. Reinsert the battery
4. Power on the computer and as soon as you see the dell logo press the f2 key a couple of time
5. Using the up down arrow keys , go to the option that says battery info. If there is an error message listed kindly post it back
6. Otherwise shut down the computer reconnect the ac.adapter and check if the problem is solved
Also the battery has a diagnostic lights on it , remove the battery from the computer and press the button on the battery a set of lights would glow. If they are steady and come in a series the battery is good , If some lights are missing the battery is bad and may need replacement

Power off the laptop.
Power it on and tap F2 at the Dell logo. check if the screen is sidways in the BIOS or not. If it looks normal in the BIOS restart the computer and go to control panel and uninstall the Video drivers. Restart the computer. It will boot up with basic drivers. Install the video drivers and the issue should be fixed.
If the display is side ways even in the BIOS try a BIOS update from support.dell.com and if you dont have an update reflash the BIOS with teh version availbale on the website.
