Dell :: Keyboard Back Lighting E6400 Very Dim

Mar 4, 2009

I've been using my E6400 for a few weeks and I really like the backlit keyboard. Using the Dell Control Point interface, I have the backlighting adjusted to about 2/3 brightness (using the slider in Control Point).

I also have it set to remain lit for one minute with no activity.

Last night, the keyboard suddenly became much dimmer than usual. I double-checked in Control Point that the it hadn't somehow been dimmed and it hadn't.

I even maxed out the slider to the Brightest setting and it had no effect. I also tried using the 'Fn' and 'Right Arrow' keys to adjust it, no change.

Dell :: M1730 Keyboard Lighting Modding

Jun 21, 2009

I'm wondering how hard it would be to add different colored LEDs under the keys. I have a feeling it wouldn't be possible to add multiple different colors, like in the speakers, so what I was thinking was simply 7 or so colors, mixed and matched under each key to look prettier

HP Mini 5103 :: Keyboard Has Stopped Wanting To Type Any Key Back To Back Without A Pause

Nov 3, 2014

My keyboard has stopped wanting to type any key back to back without a pause (whether it's a letter or delete or backspace). So if I'm typing a word with two letters that are consecutive, I have to pause or forget and backspace (which I can only do once also without a pause). It's also started this slight click/beep that happens usually in conjunction with the error although sometimes not. And, the click/beep isn't consistent (or at least I haven't found it's rhythm yet).

Dell XPS L421X :: Will Not Power Up - No Back Lights On Keyboard

Mar 30, 2013

This is the second time I have had this issue. I have already had the motherboard and power supply/cable replaced and it worked for awhile. Here is the issue.

- Occasionally after powering down, the next time I try to power up, the laptop does nothing but show the power light on. No Dell screen, no back lights on the keyboard, nothing else. I press and hold the power button down and after 5 seconds it shuts the light off.  I would then try it again with the same result. I let the battery completely drain; plug the power cord back in and after about 5 minutes of charging, try it again. This seemed to work until one day it did not. Then I had the motherboard and power supply replaced and all seemed well.  Now, 6-8 weeks later I have the same problem again.  A new L421X purchased in December 2012 with 512GB SSD running Windows 8 64 bit. I use this for business and am about to throw it out the window.  

Currently, I have tried the power up, drain power trick with no results. It is dead with all my business info on the drive.  I am about to dump Dell and switch to HP.  

Anything I can do short of a whole new machine?

Dell :: Successfully Installed New Keyboard On D800 But The Back Part Won't Go..

I finally replaced the keyboard on my Latitude D800 - the spacebar stopped functioning. The new keyboard works fine, but I think I screwed up putting stuff back together.

The back plastic part that needed to come off (the thing with the power buttons, mute, and lights, etc.)

has a small bump in front of the four indicator lights around where the right screw is for the keyboard. I can't press it down more, thoug

Dell :: Urgent Studio 17 Keyboard Back Light Refuses To Turn Off

Jul 18, 2009

Hitting Fn and the Keyboard back light button will Cycle the settings, Off, Dim, Bright.

But they use to turn off after about a minute of no use. Now they will stay on indefinitely. I wonder what could be causing this since I have not done anything to the system.

When I set the Power options to have the Screen turn off after a Minute the screen dims and turns off, But the Keyboard remains Lit.

Dell Inspiron 3147 :: Whenever Screen Is Folded Back Into Tablet Mode / Keyboard Will Not Lock

Sep 25, 2014

There is a major issue here with Dell's Touchpad drivers, they simply do not work. Anytime I try to use the Touchpad the mouse goes flying all over the place and is completely useless. Whenever the screen is folded back into tablet mode--they keyboard will not lock.

Have been on phone with Dell for hours on this with no resolve. There are a lot of people complaining about the same thing, Dell doesn't see to understand this.

Feb 16, 2009

I have purchased a refurb E6400 at a great price, the only spec it didn't have was the backlit keyboard.

Does anyone know if the keyboard can be upgraded to a backlit one (assuming I can buy the part) or is there some fundamental connection or something else missing?

I received my Dell E6400 yesterday and need to take screenshots because I am writing training manuals.

My problem is that with my Dell D260 I could press keys on my keyboard ALT PrntScrn and capture the active screen.

With the E6400 there is only one option to capture screens and that is the Fn key with the F11 which is the PrntScreen button

Dell :: E6400 Keyboard, Firm And Springy

Sep 23, 2008

my E6400 just arrived and this is the first time I owned business NB. Compared to keyboards in consumer grade NB, the keyboard on E6400 is somewhat firmer and springy.. I need to use a little more power. Please confirm if this is normal. I guess it is. If my keyboard is normal then I guess I have some story to share... in regards to keyboard:

When I had a meeting with corporate sales people, they always have either Lenovo or Latitude. Over a period, I always wondered, what's the deal with Lenovo or Latitude, why not just buy Gateway, SONY, etc. They are good quality and even stylish. In fact, I always use Sony VAIO and never had problem. Keyboard is super soft.

Back to the story... during the meeting, the corporate sales took out their NB, and I observed that most of them are not computer literate (no offense). They type using 2 fingers only and they press the keyboard super hard BANG BANG BANG!!! at that time, i thought OMG, is he mad or he just wanna break the NB. I couldnt ever dare to see him press the keyboard and just felt that one of those buttons will pop out anytime soon LOL...

Now that I owned Latitude business NB with firmer keyboard, I now believe that it is designed that way.

Dell :: Studio XPS 1647 Media Buttons Not Lighting Up Or Working

Jan 28, 2014

The touch sensitive media buttons above the keyboard on my Studio XPS 1647 stopped working the other day. When I tried to turn my laptop back on the computer beeped a few times and the screen flashed a few solid colors and then went black. I had to turn the laptop off and on again and it booted as normal except the media buttons stopped working. They do not light up or respond to touch.

I have restarted the laptop, updated the Dell QuickSet drivers and the BIOS and nothing has fixed it. According to this post the media buttons need to be replaced. How can I do that and where can I buy the parts needed?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T410s HDD LED Is Still Lighting As Charger Is In

Oct 14, 2008

I've bought Lenovo T410s in pretty bad shape. I decided to refubish the one, because I've some spare parts from T400s. So I disassembled the laptop, cleaned the one and assembled it back. Because the LCD screen was defected, I changed the whole LCD assembly (I put the whole one from T400s), changing only the LCD front bezel (but the only difference between the bezzel is the model inscription on it).

I installed the system back. After finishing the instalation of the system with all drivers update, I noticed that the HDD LED in the front LCD panel (that one under LCD) is still lighting as the AC charger is in. When I take it out, it stops lighting.
