Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?
Battery plug-in black out
\015 I am getting the opposite to most people. My laptop will run fine without the plug-in. It will charge with the plug in. But when I try and use the plug-in and run my laptop (for better light and longer use) it turns my screen black. If I disconnect the plug-in battery and close the lid on the laptop, my screen will come back and I am good to go. Can someone help me.\015\012\015\012tks \015\012sandy\015
Sounds like a ground issue between the AC adapter the motherboard. Have you tried another or spare AC adapter?
