Unplug everything, remove the battery and try again tomorrow.

What model of Dell laptop is it?

A number of Dell systems had the video card on a module at one point. In some cases, a model might have 2-3 video cards. Sometimes the difference was just in the amount of VRAM onboard, but sometimes Dell made entry-level discrete cards for the Latitude (or Inspiron) version, and a higher-end card for the same notebook relabeled as a Precision mobile workstation.

A number of people sell these cards on Ebay. The highest-end one for any given model tends to be pricey, though the lower ones may be relatively cheap and easier to find.

From Wikipedia:

Inspiron 6400/E1505

Mid-size (6.18 lb, 14" x 10.45" x 1.42"), mainstream models with an Intel Centrino or Core (Solo, Duo, or 2 Duo) at up to 2.16 GHz, 15.4" WXGA, WXGA+ or WSXGA+ display, SATA hard drive (up to 160 GB), and DDR2 SDRAM up to 2 ( 4 GB with new bios version). Both models feature an integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950, ATI Radeon X1300, ATI Radeon X1400, or NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300. Included are 7 multimedia buttons on the front. Offered with Windows XP Home, Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, Windows XP Professional, or Windows Vista Business. May include Dell Media Direct. It was offered with optional Wireless N Intel OR Dell Wireless Mini-Lan Cards. It included a 53 WHr 6-Cell Smart Lithium-Ion battery, the 85 WHr 9-Cell Smart Lithium-Ion battery was included as an option which gave it 6 hours of general use with WiFi.


So there are probably at least two mainboards. One with Intel graphics, one that uses a graphics card. And, there are three graphics cards.

You can probably flash a 6400 BIOS with an E1505 and vice versa.
