Dell :: E6400 Screen
I wanted to do this for a while. My dell e6400 has 1280x800 display. I want to upgrade to 1440x900.
I found this one New SCREEN 14.1" WXGA LCD for DELL E6400 B141PW04 on eBay (end time 14-Jun-10 15:54:13 BST)
Does anyone have experience of dealing with ebay screens, i mean are they what they say they are(working properly and stuff)?
Is there anything special I need to be looking for then buying new screen?

Dell :: E6400 Screen Cleaning
I ordered a certified refurb and the machine is great except the former owner attempted to clean the screen and left tracks all over it.
I've searched for the best method to clean the screen and the consensus seems to be using a 50% isopropyl alcohol solution onto a lint free microfiber or soft cloth and to go in small circular or one way motions.
Anyone have great success cleaning their screens with minimal smudging? Does this warrant contacting dell to get the screen replaced?
the smudge tracks are significant when the screen is off but otherwise when using the machine they are not noticeable. Otherwise no dead pixels and no other problems.
I'd like to clean the screen if I can, I've been meaning to clean my d820 anyway, I havent' cleaned that screen sine I've gotten it.
Dell :: E6400: Screen Flickering
I have some problems with the screen on my e6400 one week old.
The screen is flickering. This is most noticed when showing gradients
Like the images on this site: [url]
If I open up the same page on another computer the images does not flicker at all.
Dell :: E6400 Screen Brightness Changes
I have a Dell Latitude E6400 and am extremely happy with it as I've had no major problems with it so far (touch wood), but just last week, the screen started to go dim and then bright, really annoyingly.
I can tell it must be to with the sensor thing below the screen as when I put my finger over it, it goes dimmer.
Dell :: E6400 Privacy Screen
what do you have to install to set up the privacy screen feature on E6400s with dedicated graphics? I thought I saw it in the DCP when the notebook first came with the manufacturer install, but now I reinstalled every aspect of it that I could find on the driver and utility disk, and still nothing.
Now, my DCP has 4 options--System Overview, Power Manager, Display and Device, and Security Manager. In the Security Manager, I only seem to have options for the Fingerprint Reader and the Trusted Platform Manager (and I have no idea what the latter is). Can't find a Privacy Screen feature anywhere, and the Fn+E shortcut doesn't do anything either.
Dell :: E6400 LED Backlight Screen
I got my E6400 last week and I found that everything all right except the color of LED screen, it's awful.
The color of the screen is pale, i had tried to calibrated the graphic settings but it doesn't improve too much.
Also, i saw some posts here said that the LG screen is better than the Samsung screen, but I can't agree with that because my screen is LG.
Is it normal for LED backlight screen that the color is more pale than the CCFL backlight screen or just the screen of mine had some problems?
Dell :: Xps 13 Vs. E6400 Screen Quality
I've been considering both of these systems, but I was wondering if anyone had a bit of personal experience with the screen quality.
There are the obvious differences of size, resolution, and matte vs glossy, and the general strengths and weaknesses of both of those, but I would like to hear some impressions from someone that has had first hand experience with each.
I am going to be using the system for graphic design (student) work, some of which will go to print as well as digital photography editing. I know about color calibration and how important it is.
Dell :: Adjusting Screen Brightness On E6400
I've reinstalled Windows Vista on my E6400.
I can controll the screen brightness with the [FN] + [UP] / [DOWN] keys, but I can't see if it's up 50%, 80%, 100% etc. Before the reinstall I could se this on the display via some sort of Dell-tool.
Which driver/tool should I install from Dell to be able to see the percentage again?
Dell :: E6400 Display : New Window Is Flying Off The Screen?
I just undocked (where I have two monitors) and am now using Outlook with a LinkedIn addon feature on my laptop. For some reason,
when I open the LinkedIn app, the screen that opens is nowhere to be found. Its in mytaskbar but when I open and close it, its flying off to the right as if there were a second display still attached.
I checked the display settings and I am on one monitor.
Any idea how I can get that window to display on this screen?
Dell :: E6400 LED Screen With Vertical Linesis It Normal
Just got my E6400 with the LED WXGA+ (1440X900) screen. My first reaction is what a hell! I got these lines on the screen, its almost as its only displaying every second line or something.
Maybe its the display drivers.. so i start testing different drivers but no luck, it wont change. See below for example:
Should it be like this? Do I miss the right drivers? My monitory sais General PnP, not any specific.. I'm using windows 7 x64. If its hard to see the vertical lines let me know and i'll try to get better pics.
Dell :: E6400 Blue Screen Code 9f On Sleep/shutdown
Just got a new E6400 and even before VISTA had fully loaded 1st time, it had bluescreened and showed a minidump with errorcode 9F = DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.
Error occurs very often when going to sleep mode, and sometimes when doing reboot or shutdown.
Computer then hangs for 5-10-15 minutes before rebooting and showing the VISTA error report. Now, 2 days after 1st power on, I've had probably 10 BSOD's during sleep / restart / poweroff operations .....
Dell :: Vostro 1500 LCD Screen Replacement. New Screen Acting Weird
Hi all, new person here. I did a search on LCD screens but can't find my problem anywhere.
Here's the background and problem:
Vostro 1500 with Chungwha 1280x800 screen that got cracked by my kids. I ordered a replacement screen from a company off Amazon.com that was highly rated. Got the screen and installed it. It is make by Chi Mei. When I powered up the computer I got 8 screens of start up and it was very dim. Once it went past the Windows start up screen everything went black. It would only continue to Windows screen, still showing 8 windows in safe mode. I hooked up the old screen and everything worked fine.
I contacted the company and they air expressed me another screen, which I received yesterday. Hooked it up and got the exact same problem, which leads me to believe it's the Dell that doesn't like it. I will try and attach some photos because I am at a loss.
Thanks for your help in advance.
Dell :: Vostro Screen Wobbled/looseunable To Repair, Now Plastic Around Screen Is Loose
I have a Vostro 1500, which I bought 10 months ago. About 3 months ago the screen became loose and wobbled about 10 degrees when computer was moved or if I was on the train and it went over bumps. I tightened the screws as advised but this did not have any real effect. Dell engineer came and replaced the back cover with new hinges, (as they though hinges may be broken/at fault but they were fine,) but some wobble was still noticable so he ordered a new base. He came today and took the screen out complete with all the screen casing out of the old base, and put it into the new base, but still wobbled, so just put it back in the old base as it wouldn't have cured the problem.
Now yesterday, after he put the new back cover on, he had to take the plastic around the front of the screen off. After he put it together I noticed that the screen is no longer flush with the plastic surround and it annoys me! Am I just being finicky/picky or should I ask them to fix it?
Dell :: I9300 Gfx Card Dead - Gives A Black Screen After The Xp Spalsh Screen
I was browsing the internet a day ago and I was on a "COLLEGE" website so i know this is not due to a virus. At this time all of a suden my screen went black.
I powered the laptop off and turned it back on, The Dell logo appeared but the screen was fuzzy and had some "tearing" i dont really know what to call it but it doesnt look right. Kind of like an old VCR playing videos. The screen then whent black after the windows xp splash screen. The laptop still boots to windows but it does not display anything.
I booted into safe mode, everything functions correctly and the way it's supposed to. I then booted into VGA mode same thing everything functions and works the way it is supposed to. I also ran some virus scans just incase, nothing was found.
Whilist in safe mode i changed the resolution down to 800 x 600 and still no luck after booting in regular mode.
In VGA mode i tryed to change resolution and the screen displayed some blue fuzzy lines then whent black.
After this I booted back into safe mode and done severeral diffrent System Restores at diffrent dates. Still no luck
After going through all this I am assuming this is a GFX card problem. The laptop is about 3 years old and ive played games pretty hard on it ever since. The card has defenitly gone through some some stress. Can anyone confirm this?
I know that the i9300 sells for about 400 working, and i checked on ebay for a card that is a whopping 180 bucks. Id just assume buy a new laptop. Then sell the i9300 laptop for parts because everything else works fine. Or maybe buy the card swich it out and sell it for a price. Maybe there is a way to fix it i dont know. can anyone help?
Lastly, i thought i would add that when i check the bios the card is recognized and it displays all the correct info for the card. IS there a way to tell for 100% that the card is bad?
Dell :: Laptop Screen Not Plugged In Properlyred Lines / Screen Distorted
when i first got this laptop i noticed that the screen was distorted and there was red lines everywhere and the screen was shaking abit. so i contacted dell and they sent me a repair guy to fix it. he fixed it in about 15min by pulling apart the laptop and replugging in the screen. but now its happening again. so i think the thing that plugs in is loose or somethin. so what do u think i should do out of the following options.
1. open it myself and replug it (im a noob and will try remember best what he did)
2. get techinician to come in again (bothersome as i have school)
3. ask dell for a replacement laptop.
im using m1530
Dell :: Videos Play In Full Screen..want Wide Screen!!
whenever I play a Dvd or a downloaded video the video plays with solid black bars on the left and right side..
I assume this is full screen! I want to watch everything in Wide screen ( black bars on top running horizontally) have gone into my settings etc..including my ATI ( Catalyst Control Center) and tweaked settings still no joy!
Even on sites like You tube the same happens! Any ideas? Also posted a while ago on a reliable free data backup site! Had Dell Data Safe on-line not impressed and dumped it!
Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Screen Vs. Desktop Screen
Long ago (A year ago lol) I bought the Gateway FX gaming notebook. It was a great PC and could not beat the price with the hardware and performance it offered, however the screen was really bad.
At first glance it wasn’t, 1080p res and good brightness level, but when I plugged in my old external LCD monitor to dual screen, I was floored. My 4 year old desktop LCD screen was almost better in every single way.
The Gateway’s colors were dull, muddy, and dark, no matter how much I recalibrated the screen, I could not get it to look anywhere as good when compared to my Samsung screen on my desk.
Dell :: Ghosting Screen Or Lower Resulotion Screen
If you had the choice to choose either a Screen that has yellow ghosting, or a screen that has a lower resolution - which one would u go for?
Well I ordered a dell notebook with a 720p screen I believe that would be somewhere around 1330 x 780 - however I got a notebook with a 1600x900 screen.
The screen however has quite some yellow ghosting, which I can see for example when my charackter heals herself in oblivion. Or during fast youtube videos - especially changes between black and white, the white will have a yellow ghost following it..
Anyways, I believe if I want to get it replaced they will but the 720p screen inside.
So what are your recommendations? the ghosting is quite annoying..
would I notice a huge difference between the old and the new resolution?
Sony :: Is The 1920x1080 Screen On The Style Uk Site A X-black Screen With Multiple Lamp
is the sony FW35V(customizable) on the sony style uk site a 1920x1080 a dual lamp LCD?
it says 16.4" H1080 WXGA++ (1920 x 1080) Widescreen X-black LCD screen with built-in "Motion Eye" Digital Camera, but is it a 1920x1080 dual lamp, multiple lamp(how many?) orr single lamp? make sure its the fw35v not the fw35x. the fw35v is the one that costs £60 to upgrade the screen. the fw35x says HD1080 (1920x1080) X-black LCD with multiple lamp, which im guessing is a dual lamp LCD right? also is the Dual lamp worth it for £60?
what does it do? give brighter?, sharper?, more deep and rich colours? or something else?
Sony :: Parts Of The Screen Have Low Screen Resolution One Brand New Laptop
I just bought a brand new Sony Vaio VPCF11M1E and I have the following problem:
Because in normal stand the screen is very small, I enlarged it to x150%. Everything becomes bigger, but the following parts are blurry and absolutely not sharp:
-Pop ups, of programs and of windows itself (like advanced settings of something and then a new windows pops up, that one is then totally blurry; you can read it, but it is not the good resolution)
-Google chrome (and with that, all the internet pages)
-The google chrome on the desktop is also very blurry, while all the others, are still sharp (after the enlargement by 150%)
I have tried everything (32 bits colours is on, cleartype is on). I also did a system restore to the first days I bought the laptop and then it was on 100% so the resolution was excellent, but then I put it on 150% and again, the parts I mentioned above, were blurry.
Apple :: MBP : Screen - Pixel - On The Far Left Side Of My Screen
The MBP I bought in Aug '07 2.4 GHz model seems to be having some screen issues... in particular ... pixel issues on the far left side of my screen... I'm attaching a pdf shot of the areas in question that i took with my camera ... there are quite a few patches of pixels that are remaining a shade of white and are not responding to any colour change in desktop wallpaper/ movies/ anything...
I'm terribly dissappointed with this... i've taken pains to ensure that the MBP is always padded when i take it out (and i can count the number of times i've taken it outside home with fingers on one hand) .... so... i'm sure i haven't bumped it anywhere...
I have the apple protection plan...
any advice on what my options might be at this point? would apple look into screen replacement options? I'm in India and there aren't any official apple stores out here either:| (the closest thing out here to an apple store is a premium reseller) ...
on a totally separate note .. my battery seems to be performing excruciatingly badly as well.. health is at 84% after 64 cycles ... and that's after i've done the battery calibration tests ......
HP/Compaq :: Dim Screen After Laptop Screen Replacement
i broke my lcd screen a few days ago and i got a replacement from ebay. i installed it but i can see the image on my screen but it is verrry dim. there's no back light. so i put the old screen and turned it on and the back light is very bright but the lcd is cracked and messed up. i don't understand how could that be that the new screen is dim and the old one still is bright but messed up.
the model of the laptop is hp dv6605us
Sony :: Regular Screen Vs. True HD Screen
the fw series can be purchased with either the
16.4" VAIO Display (1600x900) or the
16.4" VAIO extra-wide HD display (1920x1080)
How much smaller is the text on the true HD screen? I will be using the laptop for charts so more pixels means more screen real estate means more charts. But if the text is difficult to read, then it is counterproductive.
Seeing the gridlines on the charts is also important so if I need a magnifying glass to see what's going on, then the TRUE HD screen is not worth it
Dell :: Which E6400 Should I Get...?
I have a choice between 2 specific E6400's. What I really want is a backlit keyboard and the integrated graphics (battery life is important to me).
The problem is, from the two models available to me, one doesn't have the backlit, while the other has the NVIDIA.
The one with the NVIDIA is $100 more expensive. So the question is, is it possible to either upgrade manually to the backlit keyboard, or downgrade manually to the Intell 4500? How difficult and expensive would either option be?
Dell :: Two E6400
I installed XP and everything seems ok but the computer doesnt want to suspend. When I click the power button (which is setup for suspend) or try to suspend any other way (like shutting the lid) the system will shut down but will come back online after about a minute or so. It doesnt want to go to sleep! Bad Boy. I have noticed that if I take off the power cord, it will go into suspend and stay there properly. I have tried two different power adapters, so I dont think its adapter-related. Its really annoying to have to totally shut down every time. I've tried disabling settings and hardware in the bios to no avail. I have DCP installed.I want to upgrade my WiFi link card to a wireless-n version. I guess this is the wifi link 5300 card. I actually bought one but its full height (533AN_MMW), so now I have to go an get the half height version (model 5333AN_HMW, right?!). One issue though, I dont know if my laptop has a third antenna cord in there for the third leg of the antennas. Can I add one? I am using a wireless N Dlink router.
Will this one work in my e6400?[url] I'm a little nervous about it because of the "G2" at the end of the model #, and the website says its for the centrino and I have a latitude.
Dell :: E6400 Summary
I went through around 100 pages of the long thread on e6400 but could not find much real information on the e6400. Can someone who knows post the following:
1. Good and Bad LCD manufacturers for the WXGA+ LED display.
2. Keyboard - specifically compared to a thinkpad keyboards.
3. Any Heat related issues the laptop has.
4. Other trouble spots to watch out for.
Dell :: E6400 Display
i got my e6400 with 1280x800 resolution screen. I notice that this screen have greyness comparing to other laptops and right colour are really important to me.
Is it possible to replace my screen to high resolution one(1440x800)?
Can i replace processor as well if i decide to do so in the future?...

Dell :: E6400 Or E4300?
I'm in the process of trying to decide between getting an E6400 or E4300 to replace my aging Toshiba A105-4074. I'm somewhat surprised by the lack of discussion here about the E4300 compared with the huge number of threads about the E6400.
I have an E4300 here at work that I have been impressed with, so I have hands-on experience with it. I haven't had any hands-on experience with the E6400, and have only seen one briefly. While I've read lots of good things about it, I wish I could use one for a couple of days in order to get a feel for it .....
Dell :: Configuring E6400...

Does the E-Plus docking station have a built in video card that supports multiple monitors .....
Dell :: Is My E6400 Overheating?
Just got my E6400 from Dell Outlet today and i noticed it's running noticeably hot.
I've read some of the posts on the nvidia overheating problem so I decided to run the same tests other people did. The screenshot is after running 3DMark2006 on Balanced power setting.
Are those temps ok? I talked to a rep who acknowledged the potential problem with the nvidia chipset and said if i send this to the depot now they can take a look at the mobo, cpu and gpu and have it back to me in less than 10 regular days.
Since I have finals coming up, I'd much rather not send it in unless they offer me onsite or some potential freebies, which the rep refused to. So any suggestion would be much appreciated. Should I run some more tests?
Dell :: How To Do 3 Displays With The E6400?
Up until this week I was doing this with my Dell D620 using the PD01X D/Dock which has a PCI slot for a video card.
Well, it's PC refresh time at work and I received a Dell E6400. Turns out the docks for the E6400 and the D-series are different (not compatible) and there is no D/Dock for the E6400, so now I'm looking for a solution that will allow me to do 3 displays with the E6400.
I purchased StarTech's USB2DVIE external USB to DVI video card, but it's only got 16MB of RAM and whenever I scroll or move windows around in the display that is being driven by the USB2DVIE, it's a little choppy, even at 16-bit color.
There are other external USB video cards on the market, but this was one of the most expensive, and I can find no indication on any of the other cards of how much RAM they have. I'm thinking I need at least 64MB, which is what the PCI card had that I was using in the D/Dock with the D620.
Dell :: Latitude E6400
Its a certified refurb; it has everything i want at a great price:
-- Latitude E6400 Laptop: Intel Core 2 Duo P9500 (2.53GHz, 6M L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB)
-- 14.1 inch UltraSharp WXGA+ (1440x900) LED Display
-- Back-lit Keyboard
-- Genuine Windows Vista Business
-- Brushed Metal Black
-- 24X CD RW/DVD Combo Drive
-- 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM 800MHz (1 DIMMs)
-- 90W AC Adapter
-- 9 Cell Primary Battery
-- 125V Power Cord
-- Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD With Express Card
-- 250 GB Free Fall Sensor Hard Drive (7200 RPM)
-- Dell Wireless 1510 802.11a/g/n Draft Mini Card
-- Integrated Webcam with digital microphone
Im upgrading the RAM to 4gb, and maybe the hard drive if its too loud. I got the integrated GPU on purpose so it runs cooler and quieter and has better battery life (I don't play games). Ill try for a new version of vista too. Im happy i got the p9500, that was probably the only one left that was a decent price,
Dell :: E6400 Raid0?
I have been reading through the forums and haven't found a certain answer... I have a OCZ SSD 2.5 inch installed in the laptop. Picked up a adapter to convert my cdrom slot into a 2.5 inch HD.
Just added a second OCZ SSD 2.5 same size same model all the same.
When I go into the intel storage bios I do not see an option to have a RAID0 (stripped) raid. I can only create a mirrored raid... Even though intel clearly states all over the place that the chipset in the e6400 can handle RAID0.
Dell :: E6400 On 64 Bit?
someone said it was better to use 64 bit vs 32 bit for vista and was wondering if this is real? and wat are the benefits of using 64 bit over 32 bit and vise versa? except to utilize all of my 4 gigs of ram.
also the dell rep said their driver support for the 64 bit was not as good as the 32 bit and was wondering if this is true?
and will some games not work on 64 bit or does that not matter?
oh and someone said when you reformat you should reformat in ahci mode, and was wondering how you do that
Dell :: E6400 Graphics
I found a E6400 in my local store that's $1500 (which is way too much) with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M, does that graphics card is the reason why it's so expensive, other than being a C2D P9500 with 4gb ram?
I really don't care about dedicated graphics card, as my current x3100 suffices. And I don't game, expect rarely BF2, which is fine with the x3100
Dell :: E6400 Freeze
I haven't set my E6400 to sleep or hibernate or anything, just the screen switches off after 5min of no activity.
When i get back to the laptop it freezes/hangs a LOT. It can be anything from blue screen, complete freeze needing a hard reboot, hang for a while before active again, nvidia driver unresponsive and reloading. It changes from happening couple of times a day to not at all for nearly a week.
I had this with the last 3 BIOS versions and i've tried ALL of the nvidia drivers available.
I kept thinking it was the nvidia drivers somehow but it just doesnt matter which ones i'm running.
Dell :: Performance E6400
I have an E6400 that I bought at the end of 2008 (IIRC in October, I think they were maybe on the market for a couple of weeks tops when I got it), and have recently been having performance issues.
Even old games & games that should work really well on it (warcraft 3, call of cthulhu, tf2 at lowest settings + 640x480) sometimes start out ok but quickly grind to a halt (slide show kind of speed).
I tried reinstalling windows (both xp and vista) & also tried running warcraft 3 via wine on linux - nothing helps much, sooner or later there is significant slow down.
I would have thought it might be the intel graphics, but then again that card is not *that* weak (warcraft 3 came out at 2003 and I have managed to run it with a 450Mhz pentium 2 + voodoo 2!), and it does start out plenty fast (sometimes).
Dell :: E6400/E6500
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 Configuration
Latitute E6400 (comparing with T400 from Lenovo)
my E6400 configuration options
1.For $50 more i can get a 2.53GHZ processor vs. 2.4GHz.
I can't imagine a noticable difference in performance
2.Should I get the WXGA or WXGA+
I also have an option called "Privacy Flexibility" - I assume it has something to do with
preventing others next to you from seeing your work.
3.My assumption is to go with the express card slot option NOT the PC card slot option
4.Integrated intel graphics or NVidia quadro ?
I don't plan on playing many games. Just want to watch DVDs, Tivo files and youtube videos
5. Backlit keyboard worth $50?
6.How much RAM. With Vista, I know 2GB is plenty. But how much should I get to support Windows 7?
7.How many of you have chosen the 80211.n card vs. the one that supports just B and G?
8.Do any of you actually use your fingerprint reader?
