Dell :: Inspiron 6400 / E1505 Screen Brightness

Mar 29, 2010

I've had my trusty Dell Inspiron 6400 since 2006 and it's still going strong, but over the last couple of months

I've noticed that the screen doesn't appear to be as bright as it used to be. It's as if the brightness isn't set to full, but when you try to increase it you discover it is at full brightness.

Can LCD screens become dimmer over time and would a replacement screen fix this?

Dell :: Inspiron 6400 / E1505 Need Hinge

Mar 25, 2010

In the forefront we can see the hinge, and in the background we can see the piece behind the hinge (PBTH) - I have no idea what to call it, so from now on it will refer to it as the PBTH. =)


Ok, the problem I've had - for years - is that the PBTH does not stay where it is supposed to stay.. the three plugs do not stay in their holes. This has caused the outer plastic part of the LCD cover to split when I close the lid.

After a few years of this, the bezel cracked on me... so I decide to get a new bezel, and I tried to fix the hinge problem.

I'm not sure what mechanism was used to keep those 3 prongs in their holes, but I was going to try contact cement (for a lack of better ideas) - if you have any other ideas, please let me know.

But now my problem is this:

Last night I glued the PBTH into place, put everything back together..tried close the lid - was met with major resistance - and the glue/PBTH bond broke.

Dell :: Is It Worth Doing Either Of These To A Inspiron E1505/6400?

Apr 4, 2009

I'm currently using a Dell inspiron 6400/E1505 notebook although i wish to upgrade to a studio 15 or 17 i cannot afford it at the moment i can however afford to upgrade the notebook i have a little bit more, the 2 upgrades i'm considering are,


Upgrading the RAM to 2 x 2gb (I spoke to someone on these forums a while ago about it and apparently it is possible) but i'm unsure if its worth it because i can't see anything that'll be different enough to warrant the upgrade .....

Dell :: Inspiron 6400 / E1505 CPU Upgrade?

Oct 21, 2009

I DID search but found conflicting information.

I have a Dell here that I just picked up free due to having a busted screen and a bad battery. Luckily I have a HUGE pile of dead laptops and had these parts!

The laptop says Inspiron 6400 on it but the service tag shows up as a E1505 on Dell's site. The service tag is 4Q38YB1 if that helps.

I put two 1gb DDR2-800 sticks in (though it comes up as 533MHz) and a 120gb SATA drive in.

Dell Inspiron 6400 :: E1505 Ethernet Not Working

Dell :: Inspiron 6400/e1505 Hard Drive Upgrade

Mar 11, 2009

I want to upgrade my laptops hard drive. It currently has a Hitachi Travelstar 7200RPM 80GB Hard drive. I want to upgrade to at least 300gb capacity,

preferably not losing out on speed either. Another issue is heat, currently my laptop gets MEGA hot and sometimes even freezes up/slows down (Im pretty sure its because of heat) and I wouldnt want to get a hard drive that runs hotter than the current one.

I dont know whether I need SATA or SATA300, 8MB or 16MB, 2.5" SFF or 2.5"x1/8H. Also, if I got a 5400RPM replacement (effectively downgrading the speed)

would I really notice that much difference ?? I 80% web browse, but the other 20% I video and photo edit and game, and I wouldnt really want to sacrifice performance if it made a big difference.

Dell :: Inspiron 15 (or 1535) & Inspiron 6400 (or E1505)

Feb 20, 2009

I am looking into replacing my old Dell Inspiron 6400, as it has been excellent -I think I should buy another Dell!

I am looking at the new Inspiron 15, which has a 15.6" display.

Can anyone tell me whether the actual laptop itself is bigger or smaller than my current 6400? I am interested in knowing width.

I see a lot of dead space on my 6400, and hopefully Dell realized this, and instead of making another 15.4" with dead space, they made use of this and gave a better display!

Dell :: Inspiron 6400 E1505 And 4GBs Of Memory (Questions About Dual Channel Mode)

Apr 13, 2009

I have a question about 4gb of memory on inspirons. I recently put in 4GB's memory in my inspiron (Corsair brand) and I am running XP(x86) aka 32bit. Windows sees 3.25gb's which is exactly correct.

Awhile back I read that the inspiron motherboard which is an intel, will not run the memory in Dual Channel mode, which will slow the memory down about 3-5%. However I am not sure of how true or not this is. I put the memory and checked my bios and its showing all 4GB's and "Dual Channel" enabled.

So the question is how real is this dual channel concern if the bios is saying its in dual channel mode? PS we are both running the latest bios A17.

Dell :: E1505/ 6400 Motherboard Or Ram Going Bad?

Jan 8, 2010

I purchased this laptop about 3 years ago and up until a few months ago it was a well capable laptop. Since the original purchase I put 2 gigs of Ram in and a new higher capacity HD and thats about it.

Around a year ago I started noticing the audio skipping on everything. Youtube, all video file types, mp3's and flacs. It didn't really bother me at the time because it was a skip or static sound every several seconds. Now more recently it is once every second and really bothering me.

Dell Inspiron 6400 :: Screen Almost Always Goes Blank Within Less Than A Second

Mar 28, 2013

Whenever I switch on my Inspiron 6400, either via the On/Off or Media Direct button, the screen almost always goes blank within less than a second. I would like to reset the computer to its original factory settings via F8 or reinstall the operating system via F12 but cannot do so because of the blank screen. Occasionally, I hear the sound which accompanies the window screen a few seconds after switching the computer on; the computer will also sometimes whirr and the number lock and wife symbols will illuminate, all whilst the screen remains blank.

This problem first developed yesterday when I received the message "NTLDR is missing". With a bit of perseverance yesterday, I could eventually get the computer to work by repeatedly switching it on an off, but this no longer seems possible today.My computer has Windows Vista.

Dell Inspiron E1505 :: Get Nothing On Screen And No Sounds At All

Mar 25, 2013

my inspiron E-1505 that I haven't used in a couple months won't boot. It has power and is charging the battery. The battery is okay. I get lights on the unit when I push start but nothing past that. If the cmos battery was dead would it start anyway? I took the HD out and put it back in. I get nothing on the screen and no sounds at all. The led's on the MB all flash during start.

Dell :: Inspiron 6400 White Line Appeared On The Screen

Jul 5, 2009

I have an Inspiron 6400 and recently a white line appeared on the screen. I took it to a repair shop and they said that the monitor needs to be replaced.
So firstly

I would like to know if it is possible to fix it without changing the screen, mainly because it is close to impossible finding a WSXGA screen in the country where I am staying now.

Dell Inspiron 6400 :: Screen Just Go Black In The Middle Of Activity

Mar 7, 2013

I am trying to figure out if my video card has gone bad on my 6400 and wanted to know if can be replaced. I have a nvidia 7200 256 mb gpu.. I am running into a problem where my screen just goes black in the middle of everything. The problem also occurs when hooking the laptop up  to a monitor. Initially I thought I had a bad inverter board and bad video drivers, both have been replaced but the problem still persist. I ran the diagnostics and the screen went black during the video check. I have to reboot the pc to get the screen back on then the problem happens again.

Can the video card be replaced on the 6400?

Dell Inspiron 5010N :: Screen Goes Dim For About 5 Seconds And Then Comes Back To Full Brightness

Mar 15, 2013

I have a year and a half old Inspiron 5010N and after about 5 minutes of being on (plugged in BTW) the screen goes dim for about 5 seconds and then comes back to full brightness. It only seems to do this once, then is fine for the rest of the use. Power setting is for "performance".

Any need to worry about an impending failure or any way to troubleshoot? It's just unnerving and doesn't seem right.

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 No Brightness Control/white Screen At Bootup After Graphics Card Change

Jan 8, 2010

I have Inspiron 9300. Unfortunately, my geforce 6800 died and I bought as a replacement x300 which was installed by a laptop repair service (they fixed other thins too.

It was due to power surge). Everything works but when I boot up the computer or when the display is set to be turned off in the power settings in Windows instead of being actually turned off the display is on and is all white.

Also brightness regulation does not work via Fn +arrows keys and is set to maximum and the white color is so intense that I get a headache after a couple of hours staring at the screen.

Dell :: E1505 And Dual Screen Flickering

May 27, 2009

I posted it in the accessories forum, but didnt get much response..was wondering if you dell guys have a better idea on this.

Basically, I have a 2.5 year old Dell E1505 with ATI x1400 on it. I just bought a new Samsung T220HD monitor and I love that thing. But, when I first hooked it up and everything and ran dual monitors, my external screen flickers about once every 5 mins.

Then when I adjusted a few things, the external screen stopped flickering, but my laptop screen started to flicker, once every 5 mins or so. When I watch tv on my this monitor (it has a tuner built in),

there is no flickering, and when I use my external monitor as my main monitor (by closing the lid of my laptop),

Dell :: How Glossy Is The Ultrasharp 1440x900 LED Screen On The E6500/6400

Apr 25, 2009

I'm considering buying a Dell e6400 or Dell e6500. I'd prefer the I'd prefer a 15.4' screen. However, if I get that I feel like I probably should get a higher res than the basic 1280 x 800. Ideally I want 1440 x 900.

The problem is Dell only seems to offer the higher resolution in a glossy screen on either model (at least in Canada) - "UltraSharp Wide WXGA+ (1440x900) LED Display-Brushed Metal Black". I spoke to Dell and they said it's something in b/w an anti-glare screen and a consumer glossy screen, but I'm not sure what to make of that.

I'm wondering if anyone has this type of screen and can tell me what their experience has been? How glossy is it?

I mainly will use my laptop for writing and office work - in coffee shops, offices or the library - so I don't like have a screen that is reflective. I much prefer an anti-glare screen. I've thought about just buying the e6400 with the anti-glare 1280x800 LED screen, but like I say, would prefer to get a bigger screen if possible, so wanted to see how glossy these screens really are.
