Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

2 very annoying problems.

\015 My Dell Inspiron 6400 has problems when standing by. Quite often, I shut the screen and the laptop fails to power down. I open the screen and the laptop goes into stand by. When I push the power button to bring the computer out of stand by, the laptop powers back up; however, windows immediately shuts down. If I try to circumvent the problem by placing the computer in stand by through windows, the laptop does power down. However, the slightest nudge will power it back up and the problem described above ensues. Why?\015\012\015\012When my charger is plugged into the wall and my computer, it runs fine. If for some reason, the charger is disconnected from my laptop, then the screen often goes black. I then have to hold the power button to shut the computer down. Other than a short battery life, I do not have a similar problem when the laptop is not connected to the charger. \015

Answers :

Plz stand by is just a power safe option for ur laptop. with some laptops when u shut the screen they hibernate with others they go to stand by and others too shutdown. and the power button on ur machine is also configured to shutdown ur machine when its being pressed. u can change these setting in the control panel\\power options. hope it solves ur problem
