    Hello everyone,

    I need help fixing a dell latitude e6410 Core i7 Laptop. I tried removing and reinstalling the cpu on the laptop and I put everything back together. When I turn on the laptop, it wont display anything on the screen. What would be the cause of this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I made sure I put in the thermal paste on cpu and installed Heatsink and fan.

    The fan was clean and aswell as the heat vent.

    I already tried other cpu's and it didn't boot up aswell.

    Is there any special key combination do I need to press when I power on the system.

    Can you think of anything else that can be useful to resolve the issue.

    Are you sure you followed all the Dell procedures for safely removing/reinstalling the processor? Here's the Dell™ Latitude™ E6410/E6410 ATG Service Manual, to check your work with, if you don't have one available.

    I'd suggest looking at these LED Error Codes (found in the Service Manual) that includes display and video card error codes. There don't appear to be any key combos that would do you any good:

    Dell Latitude E6410 Function key combinations (Laptop)
    F2         key during POST to get into BIOS.
    F12        Boot device menu.
    Fn + F1    Sleep/Hiberate per power management settings.
    Fn + F2    Switch battery charger on/off.
    Fn + F3    DCP Power Manager Battery Status.
    Fn + F4    Switch Num Lk on/off.
    Fn + F5    Switch Scroll Lock on/off.
    Fn + F7    Launches DCP(Dell Control Point).
    Fn + F8    Switch between laptop screen and external display.
    Fn + D     Switch display off/on. Helps save the battery without shutting machine down.
    Fn + Z     Reset fan temperature table and sensor.
    Fn + →     keyboard illumination off/on.
    Fn + ←     Switch Display Ambient Light Sensor off/on (brightness varies with ambient lighting).
