Out of a dozen Inspiron 6400s I am pretty sure eleven of them suffers from wobbling screens. Of course, mine wasn’t excluded from this “disease” as well. So today I decided to fix this problem and at the same time create a different post on how to disassemble the bezel and replacing the LCD panel.

Wobbling screens are most of the time a result of

  • Constant adjustment to the screen
  • Opening and closing the screens in an extremely fast manner
  • Aggressive/fast screen movements

We all know how irritating wobbling screen can be sometimes, especially when you know there is something lose inside but you have no idea how to fix it. Thus, this article is written to solve the wobbling screen problem.

First I must confess that my wobbling issue was not severe, therefore I can easily solve it with my method. For those who have serious wobbling cases, you can try this method but I am not sure that it will 100% help you fix your problem.

Fixing Wobbling LCD Screen

  1. Remove the LCD Screen.
  2. Remove the Display Bezel.
  3. As the display bezel is removed, you can see four screws (2 screws every hinge)
  4. If your Dell Inspiron 6400 suffers from wobbling screen, most probably screws near the hinges are lose.
  5. Tighten all the four screws on the both the hinges.

And you are done, wobbling screen fixed. Enjoy using your Dell Inspiron 6400 without being irritated by wobbling screen.

  3. Steve Says:

    awesome post. thanks. This wobbly screen is annoying.

  4. used tires Says:

    Yeah its frustrating when this happens, this happened to my dell laptop, where it won’t hold certain positions anymore, it will stand up straight sure, but I can’t refine the position anymore like I use to, so I wound up giving away the laptop to my sister for relatively cheap, Had I know it was this simple to fix it, I would have not given it away, LOL ooops.

    Till then,

    Regarding the Inspiron 64000 wobbling , i need to follow all the disassemble or only the bezel desassemble and adjust the hinge screws?

  6. James Says:

    You only need to remove the up to your LCD screen, then you can follow step 2 to remove the bezel, then back again at this article to fix the screws.

  7. Angel Says:

    James thanks for your suggestions, i can fix it very easy, I got my laptop for a little while, she’s running perfect and i can fix a few things she have.

  8. Ricky Smith Says:

    Can you take the display bezel off the display and tighten the screws on the display hinge without taking the display off the laptop? Can you tighten the hinge screws on the lower part of the hinge just by taking the hinge cover off?
    Is complete disassembly necessary? Thanks for a great article.

  9. James Says:

    @Ricky Smith
    It is not advisable to do that because you do not have the flexibility at all. And it is not easy to take the bezel off. It takes time.

  10. Joe Says:

    You’r the ONE. Congratulations and thanks

  11. Steve Says:

    I tightened the screws. Not wobbly any longer, but screen still flickers, but not as much. should I take it to someone? WHO?

  12. Eduardo Says:
