Dell :: Do All Outlet E6400 E6500's Have Backlit Keyboard?

Mar 28, 2009

I've been shopping laptops and have my eye on either an e6400 or e6500 from the dell outlet.

I've been tempted to pull the trigger already but I'm going to try and hold off in hopes of a coupon.

My question: Do all these have backlit keyboards?

Dell :: Bending E6500 Backlit Keyboard

Apr 5, 2009

I just got my e6500 4 days ago and I notice that the center segment of the backlit keyboard is slightly bent out.

According to the e6500 review in notebookreview, the reviewer also found such problem.

I don't konw if it a defect or it happens to all the e6500 laptop out there. Please me know.

To me, it is very annoying because my other e6500 non-backlit keyboard just lay on to the laptop perfectly.

Mar 28, 2010

Anyone know if there is a way to set the e6400 backlit keyboard to always be on?

Dell :: E6400 Owners With LED Backlit Screens...

Aug 29, 2009

Some of you might now as I posted in my other thread that I'm not sure the screen I received with my refurb'd E6400 is the WXGA+ LED backlit like it promised in the invoice.

The primary reason is is that there is a sticker on the bottom of my laptop that says "Made in Malaysia" and also "Hg" with a circle around it. This is mercury; contained in CCFL backlit screens .....

Dell :: E6400/E6500

Sep 18, 2008

I've been wavering back and forth between the T500 & E6500 for the past few weeks, but been pretty satisfied with our past Dell fleet and their service.

Up to Monday I was pretty much set on the E6500's, but I'm starting to see more and more threads about troublesome issues on the E-series. Things that would certainly bother me and my team.

Maybe we can keep track of all the issues and hopefully resolutions to them on this thread.

Here's what I've compiled so far:
Let me know what else to add.

1. Poor quality WXGA+ LED screens
Disappointed with LED LCD in E6400
E6400 vs. XPS M1330 LED Screens

2. Drifting Trackpad / Lack of proper sensitivity adjustments
E6500 TrackPoint drifting badly

3. Keyboard issues
E6500 TrackPoint drifting badly

4. DVD burner problems
Latitude E-Series DVD Burner troubles

5. Crackling/poor audio
e6500 crackling audio

6. Random lockups

Dell :: E6400 Or E6500?

Sep 7, 2009

Well I'm pretty much sold on either the e6400 or e6500 as a basic CAD electrical engineering laptop for college.

After reading a lot of reviews about weight, battery life, heat and screens. I wanted get some opinions.

I am for sure getting the quadro 160m for rendering and probably the p8600 since it's plenty fast and will consume less battery life and produce less heat.

I'm not sure whether to get the 14 or 15" model because of the size and heat and battery life.

Dell :: E6400 Vs. E6500

Oct 2, 2008

Since my good old 15" notebook (from summer 2003) died in the beginning of the year, I was looking for a replacement and soon came across the E-series leak. I was immediately impressed by the sleek look and the nice set of features, but I couldn't decide on a certain configuration until now. The result was spending almost 9 months with my old Pentium 3 desktop and its 17" CRT - not exactly the finest web experience you can imagine. This desktop will soon be replaced by a budget gaming system, but I'm sure it will still play a secondary role. Became too accustomed to solely using a notebook, I guess

I should first introduce myself a little bit and talk about what I'll do with this machine. I've just finished school and I'm beginning to study Computer Science at a nearby university this week - staying at home and commuting every day with the notebook in my backpack. Its main purpose will be nothing special, the usual word processing and internet stuff, but also coding and anything else I'll do for university. I still have to try out if it's necessary to take notes on it during part of the lectures, but I think the battery life of the 6-cell should be sufficient. If not, I might just buy a second 6-cell, which doesn't cost much more than upgrading to the 9-cell battery and is more flexible in my opinion.

Here are the parts I've almost decided on, while I'm free for your suggestions:

- P8400 processor
- Vista Business (unsure if I should get Home Basic, it will be secondary besides Linux anyway)
- 2 GB of RAM
- Intel X4500 graphics (keeps cool, saves power, and runs fine with Linux)
- WXGA+ LED display with webcam (WSXGA+ would have pushed me towards 15,4")
- DVD burner (don't need it much, but still hope the firmware issues get sorted out)
- Intel Wifi Link 5100 (good Linux support in the future, but won't pay EUR 45 more for the 5300)
- Bluetooth (standard except for the absolute budget class, isn't it?)
- Backlit keyboard (pure gimmick, but might be nice for those nightly sessions )
- NO fingerprint reader
- 6-cell battery
- 3 years NBD service and nothing else

Dell :: Keyboard With A Backlit One

Aug 16, 2009

I got a Dell Studio 1737 through the Dell Outlet, and after a little while the Num Lock light stopped working. The button still turns it on and off, and I've been debating calling and having to deal with them to get a replacement. Another option I've been thinking about is replacing it outright with the backlit keyboard.

My question is this. What will doing this outside of Dell do to the warranty? The Caps Lock light does still come on, so I'm thinking it's an issue with the light, and if I have to replace it, I might as well go with the better one.

Dell :: Where To Get A Backlit Keyboard For An M4400?

Apr 21, 2009

I recently bought an M4400 from the Dell Outlet. Unfortunately, the one that had everything else I wanted didn't have the backlit keyboard.

From looking at the service manual, it looks like a keyboard swap is pretty easy, but I can't find anywhere (including Dell Parts) to buy the actual keyboard (whose part numbers appear to be either G077C or 330-0825, depending on where you look).

Dell :: Backlit Keyboard And Antiglare?

Apr 14, 2010

Why are these two features so rarely available together??

All I have found is the teeny Vostro 3300, and expensive Latitude models. Why no middleground for 14/15/16/17 inch screen machines?

Am I being too picky....? Probably. But seems daft where you are able to customise just about every other feature.

Dell :: FIX For E6400/E6500 Non-animating Cursors

Nov 24, 2008

I checked with Dell Live Chat late yesterday afternoon (I have been in contact with them many times before regarding this issue, to no avail) and got lucky. After the rep had me uninstall/reinstall different drivers, which did not work, he asked if he could have remote access to my machine. I granted it and within a few minutes, he solved the issue. His fix was a registry edit. Unfortunately, since in my mind the only fix was going to be a new driver from Alps, I did not play close attention to the changes he made. I believe the entries changed are located at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Alps" and "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Alps". You need to look for an entry that reads something like "Cursor Type" (it was located near the top 1/3 of the entry) and you need to change it from whatever it is currently set at (something like 1715 or 1517, I don't really remember) to zero (0). Reboot and viola...animated cursors are back.

Dell :: Modifying Fan Controller For E6400/E6500

Jan 17, 2009

The fan on my E6400 runs most of the time at about 3000 rpm, I would like it to run at about 1500 rpm instead, I think 3000 rpm is quite noisy, even though it's stated as "slow"...

It works great and I'm able to controll the fan-speed (and noise!) manually..

I'm wondering if it would be possible to modify this fan controller for the E6400 and other laptops as well?..

The Zalman Fan Mate 2 has an input of 12V and can via the knob output between 5-11V, hence the fan will run slower if it is conncected to the Zalman controller. The problem so far is that the Zalman Fan Mate 2 is built for desktops with bigger power-pins, the one in the E6400 is quite small. Secondly I'm not sure about the voltage of the built in Dell-fan.

Anyway, if someone figure out how to modify a hardware fan controller for the Dell Latitude series, I think these controllers could sell like hot cakes...

Dell :: Different Fingerprint Reader In E6400 And E6500

Nov 9, 2008

When I ordered my E6400, it said on the Dell configuration pages that it would have a UPEK fingerprint reader. I am quite sure I got another fingerprint reader since it says "Broadcom USH CV w/Fingerprint Swipe Sensor" in Device Manager. When I look closely at the quotes I got from the Dell sales guy it doesn't say UPEK anywhere on the E6400 quote but it does say UPEK on the E6500 quote.

Does the E6500 have the same (non-UPEK) fingerprint reader?

Is it possible to get the E6400 with a UPEK fingerprint reader?

I would like to have a laptop with the UPEK fingerprint reader since I ordered a Dell USB UPEK fingerprint reader with my laptop that I intend to use when the computer is in the docking station. The USB UPEK fingerprint reader doesn't work with the fingerprint software on my E6400. I am not 100% sure it will work even if I would have the same brand of fingerprint reader in the laptop but I think it should increase the chance a lot.
