I stupidly bought a cheap charger of ebay that after a few hours of charging my laptop it ended up blowing while still plugged into my laptop. My laptop still works but it will not charge at all I've tried 3 different charges and still no joy. I no its not the battery as if I tuck it out and just left the charger in the laptop wouldn't turn on at all. I tuck it to some little corner shop but after 3 weeks of nothing i rang them and they said they can't fix it. So I was wondering how do you find out which version Inspiron 6400 motherboard I have with out taking the whole find apart. The laptop is out of warranty so I need to replace the board my self

I would take it to another, this time reputable shop. While it could be the motherboard, it could just be a fusible link in the charging circuit that needs to be replaced.

Well, I wish I had more to offer. Sorry. Certainly Google is your friend. If you enter Inspiron 6400 motherboard, you will get many hits, including this one: http://www.parts-peo...on=item&id=3438

It might be more cost effective in the long run to buy a new notebook.
