DELL LATITUDE E6400 take apart video, disassemble, how to open disassembly


No music. No talking. Just work.
If you are taking your DELL LATITUDE E6400 laptop apart be careful and wear an anti-static wrist band or use other anti-static device. If you need to change a LCD usually you don’t have to take screen out of a laptop. You can leave it on a laptop and watch the last part of the video where I am taking LCD apart. If you need to change a keyboard, you don’t have to take all bottom screws out. There are usually some marks, like a keyboard picture, on a case bottom. If you need to put a laptop back to work be aware of screws. They are different and you better remember or mark them somehow to insure that you will put them back in to a right place.
Some laptops I take apart first time, so don’t be serious on my time and performance.
If something got broken – ooops, it’s your fault.
Believe me, some parts in your laptop are already broken, you just don’t see that.
This video is like insurance for your laptop. With this video and some skills you will be always sure that at least you can try to repair your laptop. If it’s broken you don’t have to sell it or throw it away. You can find some new or used parts somewhere and change it. It maybe will be your new job or hobby. And if it didn’t worked out you still will be able to ask somebody else to fix it.
So, just watch this video and fix your laptop.
Have fun and good luck!!



  1. 10:16 Now great grandma you can leave the cellar if you can reassemble the laptop in 20 mins with your blindfold still on. 🙂

  2. So my Dell LATITUDE E6400 LATCH HOOK broke.. $8 part on eBay ..looks like it could be simple.. any suggestions.. thanks

  3. Great video except for one big NO-NO. You never use power tools for electronics work unless you like to damage parts and items. It's an electronic, not a car you don't need torque or power like that but, thanks for the video overall. Made this a bit simpler.

  4. Спасибо! И насчет инструментов – за время работы хотя бы полгода у каждого появляется набор инструментов, который мастер любит. Привык и работает с наибольшим комфортом. Поэтому виват мастеру, который с ножичком и минимальным набором каких нибудь девайсов сделал реально работающее видео. Нет музыки, нет дурацких разлагольствований. ТОлько работа! Виват!

  5. +regazzz I Broke the backlight connector that you disconnect in min 8:2 dou you know if there is replacement for this ? or I have to get the whole LCD ?

  6. Wish to know that if dell latitude E6400(having core 2 duo with a processor of 2.9 GHZ& 4GB RAM) with nvidia graphics cards is suitable for gaming.

  7. I would like to get to my headphone (audio) jack to see if I can either solder or fix whatever is wrong with it. Is it necessary to disassemble the bottom portion of the laptop prior to going in under the keyboard? Thanks.

  8. Thanks much for vid, perfectly clear with no noise or fast-tracking 🙂   I need to replace the power jack in a e6410, what a pain, thank you Dell for building it ass-backwards…

  9. Very good thank you.
    Would you know what would cause laptop not to power up, power cord and battery are good?
    Thank you
