Question about Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook
Bought Inspiron 6400 laptop in april of this year and in august i started having power problems first - when i press power button the power led on the right of the system lights for a few seconds then fades, and sometimes the 3 locks on the left light for a few seconds as well and then fades. NB " this is without the battery in the laptop".
Sounds like the power pin is either loose or damaged. . . .Happens from jerking or tugging on the cord too much.
Once you get it fixed you need one of these. . .

Could very well be the RAM slots as weve ran into it on these before as well. Try swapping the Modules around and running on one stick at a time. If its the issue the other will eventually fail as well. These can be reworked so the problem wont resurface.

You need to keep the battery in the pc - even if it's dead !! If the problem exists & the pc stays on - then I wouldn't worry about it :) If the problem still exists & switches itself off,then you should get in touch with customer support as it's still under warranty Regards, Freddie

Hi xxxghostxxx, My laptop is having the same problem as you do. Did you found out what is the problem that is causing it? Thanks,

This is a design to fail issue. Dell will integrate flaws into their technology so that it doesn't last too long.
