touchpad on Inspiron 15 7000 Series 7559

Q: touchpad on Inspiron 15 7000 Series 7559

I have W10 on a new Inspiron 15 7000 Series 7559. When I have a mouse or trackball connected, I would like to turn off the touchpad. Otherwise stray fingers from typing move the mouse around.
I went to the control panel and found an option that says "Leave Touchpad On When Mouse is Connected". If I turn that off, then the touch pad is disabled. But I'm using a wireless trackball. When I turn the trackball off, the touchpad doesn't start working. I have to remove the trackball's USB dongle before the touchpad starts working. Ideally, the touchpad would work whenever the trackball isn't working. But it's not that convenient.
On my old Dell laptop, there was a hotkey for enabling the trackpad. That would be ideal. I'd like to enable it quickly depending on whether I'm using the trackball or not. I can't find any hotkey on this laptop. And I can't even find a quick way to get to the control panel setting.
Any way to make this more functional? Possible solutions would be (in order of preference):1) Have the control panel setting work whenever the trackball is turned off or missing, even if the trackball dongle is still in the USB port.
2) Have a hot-key that could enable and disable the touchpad.
3) Create a shortcut directly to the relevant control panel page.
Thanks for any help,
DaveT

I have recently installed Windows 7 on my Inspiron 15 7000 - 7559. I managed to found most of the drivers and get the hardware working.
However for the Touchpad, I cannot find driver or software for it. Windows 7 just uses the default drivers PS/2 Compatible Mouse. When in the Dell drivers site, it does not have drivers for input devices.
It works fine as a regular touchpad but it does not have the additional function such as two finger scrolling etc. 
This is still fine to me until I realized that my palm will accidentally hit the touchpad when typing. Looking  at my older dell laptops, I saw that there is a palm rejection feature for the Dell touchpad.
Windows detect this trackpad as Atmel Maxtouch.
Can anyone please advise me were to find a compatible driver to solve this issue?
You help and assistance is greatly appreciated.

I have a Inspiron 15 7000 Series 7559.   It is 5 months old.  The left hinge started clicking and now everytime my computer opens the computer is starting to come apart.  I have the premium warrenty.  I have called 3 times today and talked to different people.  I have been disconnected 3 times with no one calling me back.  They say that the hinges are not covered under warrenty.  It hasn't been dropped or mistreated.   I have been a dell customer for over 15 years so i'm not sure  why they are giving me a hard time or not calling me back.    Also while gaming my fan is running super hot.    

Does anyone have any suggestions or a number I should call to get actual decent help.

Thank You ,

A:Hinge and Fan issue Inspiron 15 7000 Series 7559 NOT HAPPY ATM

Hi HIGHMAINT30,
Does the system overheat? Does it freeze or turn off automatically when its hot? What applications are you using when the fan issue is noticed? Is the fan noisy? Does it run with noise from the time the system is turned on? Are there any bluescreens / system crashes?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/2aV8Rib - restart the system and check the fan functionality.
When you contacted our colleagues, do you have the case reference# for us to review?
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

About once every month, my laptop keyboard will freeze up out of nowhere. It doesn't matter what I'm doing at the moment. However, at the same time, the power button also stops responding. In order to turn off my computer, I have to unscrew the panel under my laptop and unplug the battery cable. After re-plugging the cable in and rebooting, my laptop works fine... until the next time the keyboard fails and I have to do everything described above again.
I have attempted factory resets and system restores but nothing I have done seems to resolve the issue. I suspect that the issue may be related to the actual keyboard's hardware but I am hesitant about opening up my laptop unless it's actually necessary.
Anyone who has experienced this problem or has any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there,
I have a brand new (2 days old) Inspiron 15 7559. Today I went to turn it on, and it refused to power up. The backlit keyboard came on, and I noticed that the front LED would come on, then after awhile it would start blinking orange. 
I've tried it without the battery, just on AC mains; and just on the battery and the result is the same. 
I tried looking around for some information but haven't found much related to my issue. Any suggestions or easy fixes? Or is it something that needs to taken into Dell?
Thanks in advance!

Around once a month, my laptop's keyboard will randomly stop working out of nowhere. It doesn't matter if I am playing a game or just simply browsing Google Chrome. At the same time, the power button stops responding as well. The only way for me to turn off my laptop is to open up the panel under the laptop and pull the battery cable out. After replugging in the battery cable and rebooting, my laptop goes back to normal until a month later when one of these random freezes happens again.
I've tried factory resets and system restores but nothing has solved this problem. I was thinking that the root of the problem being with the actual keyboard's hardware but I am hesitant to open up my laptop unless I'm absolutely sure of the cause.
If anybody has also experienced this issue or has any suggestions, they are greatly appreciated.

Hi--
I bought the laptop mentioned in the title, the Inspiron 17 7559, a little under 3 months ago for school as well as some gaming.  A couple days before I spoke with tech support the cpu fan (fan on left side if you're looking at the top of the laptop and are in front of it) began making a horrible grinding/squealing noise.A little background: before going to school, I spent a decade as field technician on both military advanced electronic systems and production-class robotics systems.  So I opened the back panel just to glance at the fan, see if maybe there was a glaring physical abnormalities, as  the fan was clearly grinding on something and when it kicked into high would be scraping fast and hard enough to produce this noise.
I open the back cover, a screw falls out from its happy little home (which is, needless to say, both Not A Good Thing and Ominously Foreboding), followed by the shorn threading which had come from another screw.  Also, three or four  screws were VERY loose.  Which explained why the case had begun to separate near where the monitor pivots attach to the case.  Completely structural screws.  I tightened those up a bit, but didn't mess with any screws in the component housing area, as thos can have specific torque settings and such, and overtightening can do real damage.  As for the fan, its sitting a millimeter or so lower in its housing than the other, and even the slight spinning it did while I t...

I was playing a video game on my laptop around 4:30, when the keyboard suddenly stopped working. The mouse still functioned, so I tried clicking around to see if it was just a problem with the game. Then at 4:32, the mouse stopped working, too. I decided to try turning it off, but neither holding nor pressing the power button worked, so I unplugged the laptop from the charger and left it to run out of power on it's own. At 4:35, the display froze. I know this, because up until then the clock was still working. Currently, the vent fan is still running, and the screen is frozen. No keyboard buttons work, and neither the built-in trackpad nor an HDMI mouse is working.  Is there anything I can do to fix this, or do I need to send it in?The laptop was a brand new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series, with Nvidia GeForce GTX and an Intel Core i7.

I am having an issue with certain games where they have sound, but no visual. Using NVIDIA control panel, I can force it to run on my integrated card, which it then runs extremely laggy because its running on the integrated card, VS the 960m.
I only have an issue with this on certain games, some run with absolutely no problem, games like CS:GO, Skyrim, Garry's Mod, and others work fine. But then games like GTA V, Overwatch, World of Warcraft(?), City's: Skylines, Faster Than Light, and more do not work at all if I run it on my NVIDIA card. I see no pattern to any of these games, its just random games work and others don't unless I run them on my integrated Intel GPU.
Let me add I sent my computer to Dell themselves, and they didn't even fix the issue. So I am completely out of options.

I bought the Inspiron 15 7000 (1TB HDD, non-touch) two months ago and have noticed that my screen flickers slightly intermittently. I'm adding a link to a video showing the problem at the bottom of this message.
I first noticed the problem during my first week of using this laptop and assumed it was a driver or software issue. Since then I've searched through forums to see if someone else has a similar thing going on. A lot of people have commented negatively about the screen for this model but that's mostly because of the colors and low brightness.
I have installed all the latest drivers (video, graphics, BIOS) from Dell's website as well as played with power settings (Dell Power Manager Lite and Intel's Graphics Properties) but to no avail. I should also point out that having the laptop on battery or plugged in makes no difference and the problem persists.
Please let me know if there's anything else I should try before sending it back to Dell. Thank you!

Hello,

Background
I received my Inspiron 15 7000 (7559) gaming edition yesterday. Brand new from Dell.ca, with 4k touch screen and dual HDD & SSD.

Problem
There is a faint, but noticeable and annoying high-pitch buzzing sound coming from near the center of the keyboard. This happens as soon as I use any audio after I boot. 
When I mute my speakers, the high-pitch stops and is replaced by a much less noticeable low-pitch buzz. 
The high-pitch buzzing volume is the same, regardless if my volume is at 2 or 100. 
Headphones plugged in, there is no buzzing from the earbuds, but still a low-pitch buzz from the laptop.
It sounds like as if the speakers were turned up all the way so there's high- or low- pitched static.
Edit: I'm unsure if it still buzzes when video/music is playing.

Remarks
I am considering re-installing the audio driver, and I will also call support in the coming days.
I appreciate all suggestions and input!

Hello, I just bought this Inspiron 7000 gaming laptop as a replacement for my old Studio XPS that *** out recently, and one of the selling points was the ability to add a hard drive in the empty bay. I threw my XPS's HDD into the slot, but then the Inspiron wouldn't boot. Removed it, booted fine. I assumed that this is because the HDD comes before the M.2 SDD in the boot order and tried to fix that, but to no avail. With the HDD removed I set the BIOS to legacy boot, but it appears that reading an M.2 slot is beyond its capabilities, because Windows just cycled "choose a boot option" over and over no matter which Hard Drive disk option I chose (there were 2, I assumed one would be the SDD). I switched the BIOS back and everything's back to being fine.
There must be some way to do this, but I'm coming up empty on searches. Does anyone have a solution?

After Windows 10 upgrade, my laptop appears to be running flawlessly except one major annoyance: the screen no longer auto-rotates when in tablet mode.  This is a convertible PC, so this basically renders tablet mode useless. 
Details:
Fully updated system prior to installation of Win10
After upgrade, I updated all of dell's applications, drivers (one exception, see below)*, and bios.
Display settings - "Lock Position" is turned on permanently (greyed out, cannot adjust)
*When I try to upgrade the video driver, it fails because the recommended driver update for my system (July 23rd, 2015) says its older than the current version.
I suspect this is a driver issue.  Should I go ahead and install the older driver?  I know Win10 just rolled out so I expected a few hiccups but I was surprised to find very little info about this issue as of yet.  I use my laptop as a tablet quite frequently, so I would like to find a solution to this problem quickly.

So I've noticed today that the upper edge of my laptop's touchpad seems to be rising slightly as if something is pushing it up from behind. I can push it back in, but it just comes up again. Initially I was worried I had a swelling battery, since the battery is situated in that area. But I opened up the laptop to check, and the battery shows no signs to distortion at all. My best guess now is that it might be a problem with whatever adhesive Dell used to glue it down.

Hello, I purchased this touch laptop months ago and it has barely been used or even mobile. I have had an issue with the screen flickering for quite some time, it came out of nowhere prompting me to use the laptop less. 
The screen does NOT have an issue with flickering and brightness. The screen flickers EVERY time I move/touch the monitor at all. Sometimes when I move the entire laptop. Please give advice on what I should do as I don't have a ton of $$ to go anywhere to get it fixed and I bought the laptop in brand new condition from Craigslist so there is not a warranty.
Thank you for the help and please do not respond if you have the same problem, but you do not have a viable solution, that helps no one.

I just bought a new laptop a few days ago (no exact model, but it's the 17" 7000 series model, and it has a $999.99 MSRP) and while listening to music, I noticed the bass output is very weak to non-existent. I tried playing with every single setting in Dell Audio/MaxxAudio control panel but to no avail. Even tried reinstalling the Realtek Audio Driver, again solved nothing. My headphones work just fine as I tested them on my other devices and am getting bass output with them.
Any help would be appreciated. I really love this model, but I hope I am not looking at a manufacturing defect. The other aspects of the audio sounds fine otherwise, just lacking bass that would make my music enjoyable since the majority of music I listen to has a lot of bass.

I did the screen's self test by having the computer powered off, holding down the 'D' key while pressing the power button. While it went through its test I could still see this dim area on the screen. very noticeable as is cycled through different solid colors on the screen.  There dim area is still there after the self test is complete and after a normal boot into windows10.

When leaving the room where my Inspiron is, I will often leave the screen open and the laptop will go to sleep and the screen will turn off like it is supposed to. However, after leaving the room and returning about ten to fifteen minutes later, I find that the screen has turned on and the camera is actively taking pictures trying to use the facial recognition function. I don't know how long the camera was actively taking pictures but when I felt the camera, it was incredibly hot, suggesting that the camera had been taking pictures for a while and draining a good amount of battery. This has happened on numerous occasions and I enjoy the liberty of not having to close my computer down every time it is not in immediate use. I was wondering if there was some way to prevent this from happening other than just always closing the screen when the computer is not in use.

So, I've had my Inspiron 13 for about a year or so. I've had no real major issues or complaints, including upgrading to Windows 10 and those that I did have were solved with a simple search. After having my laptop for a year, its storage eventually filled up. I used a program called CCleaner to delete any junk files on my system, doing my best to make sure the program didn't delete any files that I needed, or that were necessary to the system. However, my best wasn't good enough as my system lost its functionality to automatically rotate depending on what orientation the system is in (Auto-Rotate). I went to the support page for my model, ran the system diagnostic more times than I can remember, as well as doing a full system scan twice, but all the tests showed that my system had no errors and was up to date. I reinstalled all the drivers on the support page, and uninstalled and reinstalled QuickSet64 and the ST Microelectronics 3-Axis Digital Accelerometer Driver, as this thread had suggested the problem may lie there. I also downloaded the Dell "Intel Chipset Driver" as this thread had suggested, verified that QuickSet64 was starting up with my system as this thread had recommended, and disabled the sensor in Device Manager and re-enabled as this thread writer had done, along with updating as many items in Device Manager as I could. I did however notice that I only had one sensor whereas others have seen two, and the numerous t... Read more

Hi
I purchased an Inspiron 13 7000 Series 2-in-1 (7347) a few months ago now.
One evening after finished using it, the laptop was turned off and put away as normal.
The next time it was switched on, the screen had cracked!
This now means the touchscreen is useless and makes the laptop unusable at times.
I have already called Dell support and was asked to send pictures to a support staff member.
He has not responded and may have left the Dell Support??
Can someone please assist in resolving this, the laptop has not been mistreated or abused in any way, the screen has simply cracked from closing the lid of the laptop!

HELP!

The touchscreen on my Inspiron 15 7000-series started to go black, 15 months after buying the laptop.  I don't watch movies or play games, or use the touchscreen-feature more than 1% of the time.  The servicer said it cannot be repaired and the entire screen (laptop cover) needs to be replaced by Dell. Is this a common experience -- that is, do touchscreens go bad just after the warranty expires?

Hi there
I'm wondering how to approach this problem. When I use the default setting of "tap in lower-right corner to right click", the area it uses for the bottom right actually uses the majority of the touchpad. I end up with the left most 1cm being left click and the other 10cm being right, which isn't usable.
I have tried switching to 2-finger tap for right click but a number of programs don't seem to register it correctly (I think that's a win 10 issue), and also at random restarts the touchpad will act as though this is disable and its settings are all default, despite not being in the actual settings menu (again a win 10 issue?)
Is there a specific driver I can use to improve the touchpad behaviour or gain more control? Is there anything I can do to change the size of the right click width so it only takes up half?
Thanks

So I was hoping to be able to add a second monitor with my Dell Inspiron, but I didn't have an extra monitor just lying around, so I was hoping to be able to use my old laptop for the same purpose. I tried hooking up the two computers with an HDMI cable, but there was no response. I'm fairly certain that the issue lies in the Inspiron's Display Adapter, which uses the Intel graphics card instead of the Nvidia one that is also installed. Is there some way to change the display adapter that the computer uses?
Or, if I'm just completely wrong about what's causing my problem, is there something else that could be making it so that my two laptops won't connect via HDMI?

Just got my new laptop today, and of course first thing I do is open it up and put in an SSD. Well it looks like the "holder" that you put the drive in before screwing it into the actual laptop is warped... Photo attached. If you look, towards the left of the pic is where the screw is, then the caddy slowly protrudes out, then goes back in closer to the second screw. Do you guys think this is cause for concern (ie will it randomly one day destroy my entire laptop due to the pressure)? Or if I leave it alone should it be fine.

Thanks

You could take it out, take the drive out, then use light finger pressure to straighten it out. From what I can see, it wouldn't cause me any undo concern. If the retaining screw isn't binding I wouldn't worry about it.

Hi,I bought a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series laptop around about November time last year, and after a BIOS update a couple months ago or so it now will randomly go to a black screen, but the backlight is still on. The BIOS update being near the time that this began to happen may be a coincidence, but it was the only real change during this period.On this black screen, I have no cursor and none of the buttons on my keyboard do anything. The only solution I've found is to hold in the power button to shut the whole system down. 
There doesn't seem to be a particular pattern as to when this problem occurs, it will just randomly go black.
This has happened around about 6/7 times in the past few months. All the events did occur late at night though (past midnight). However, this could just be because I usually sit on my laptop longer at night time, and therefore that increases the chances of it happening.
Due to many "Black Screen Crashing" problems with Windows 10 - that aren't the same as my problem - a google search did not help. 
System Specs are as follows: 
System Model Inspiron 7559
OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2601 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)

So Dell made a really terrible decision.  They have a transparent strip in the power button for an LED light to indicate if the power is on.  A power indicator is a given in any laptop, no matter how cheap it is.  However, Dell in all of it's genius decided to not include an LED bulb on laptops up to the Inspiron 7000 Series, despite leaving a transparent slot for it.  Seriously, what happened to this brand?!?  Do children make these laptops now?
I want to fix this, as my laptop is no longer returnable and a power indicator is absolutely necessary.  So the only thing I can think of is replacing it with one from the 7000 Series somehow (with some help probably).
This is a Dell Inspiron 5559.  I also have an Inspiron 5547.  Not sure which exact 7000 model I should get the part for...
Are they compatible?
Is there an easier way? Like how Fn+H turns on the hard drive indicator?
Thanks.

What I have tried is below
- In control panel, sound, communications: when Windows detects communications activity
  Select "Do nothing" 
- uninstalled audio driver and leave it is automatically reinstalled after reboot
- uninstalled audio driver and install the audio driver downloaded from dell support
- do clean boot and uninstall-reinstall driver
It was resolved once when I tried pull off and push back the usb for the logitech wireless mouse. When the volume control got stuck on screen again, I tried this again but it does not help anymore.

Hi everyone,
I am having a problem with the Realtek microphone in Skype.
The symptoms are as follows:
Shortly after beginning of the conversation the other party cannot hear my voice. Video is fine, the voice of the other party is also fine.
When this happens the microphone green bar in Options/audio settings will not be seen when speaking into it.
However I can hear what's spoken into the microphone in the local speakers.
I uninstalled the microphone in manager, re-installed the driver, did not help.
Uninstalled the Realtek hi-def audio driver. This helped first but then after 4 minutes talking the problem returned again.
 
I can see that when this happens the speaker icon in 
Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\manage audio devices\recording\microphone\microphone properties\levels
is crossed out. If I uncross it and put boost and level above zero the other party can hear me again.
This happens spontaneously, by itself. Even without Skype running, so this is why I think it might be a driver problem.
 
Any ideas? (please no "reinstalled driver" advice - has done so multiple times)

Hello!
I got my Dell Inspiron 15 5000 series a week ago, and despite things working perfectly in the beggining, my touchpad stopped scrolling (2-finger gesture).

According to the sticker on my laptop I have a precision touchpad, but I see no "You have a precision touchpad" statement in the settings as I believe I should.
Can anyone help? Is there a specific driver that maybe got corrupted? (I ran the update driver test and it says that my driver is up to date) Or is there a separate driver for the gestures?

I used to have a lot of problems with the touchpad intermittently freezing; it then worked well for a while but is now misbehaving oddly.
 
The right and left buttons on the touchpad work normally, but instead of moving the cursor, trying to use the main part of the touchpad scrolls the screen up and down instead.  A USB mouse connected works normally.
 
It started yesterday.  Only thing I did was run AdwCleaner and delete a registry key it found (I think I had downloaded adware on mistake so I was cleaning it).  It started this behavior a little while later.
 
ScrollLock doesn't seem to be on and I have tried disabling and re-enabling the touchpad.

How many of you are running AMD 7000 Series in your gaming PC's. I will really appreciate if you people can tell your benchmark scores cause in reviews they use latest possible hardware which not everyone runs so can't really rely on them.

I've read loads of reviews about these and come to conclusion that 7870 is best bet at the moment to go for as 7970 is way too expensive.

Moment of truth, shall I ditch my 5770 crossfire and buy one 7870 or wait for prices to go down further.

I would hold, the two current series out right now Nvidia's as well.
These are stepping stone improvements. I honestly believe the next generation will come quickly (fall/winter)
and will be a much larger improvement in real world performance.

The best numbers to look at would be at hardware compare where they just take the actual features of the card and put them head to head for you.

Honestly the 7970 is a serious beast it actually blows away my current card that handles bf3 maxed without complaint. Which is actually kind of my point too though your crossfire rig should be getting pretty good frames even if it's a middle card that kind of sucks at anti-aliasing. I'm guessing your overall experience gaming is not too different from mine right now. (see my specs)
So why bother getting in a rush?
I could be wrong about this, but I am seriously expecting a 7 series nvidia and a 8xxx ati before the end of the year.
...and at the moment I don't see the actual need to upgrade considering the list of games on the horizon and the fact most of them have rather middle range recommended reqs.

The new bioshock I think is among the heaviest reqs of any games comming out before the end of summer anyhow.

Normally just to be fair I would recommend a nvidia equiv for you.

No there aren't any modded drivers for cards that old, there is nothing to mod as there is nothing in the new drivers that would support them. The best he can hope for is to use the last XP driver,

which is a few years newer than what he has now.

In CPUZ the memory is reporting frequency and timings as the frequency and timings on the memory label. 932 11 11 11
However, in the BIOS, the memory frequency is reported at 0 MHz. Will this error in the BIOS be corrected in future BIOS updates?

Phenom Recycled: Athlon X2 7000-Series : AMD Introduces Dual-Core Phenom

Everybody is getting excited about the upcoming Phenom II launch. AMD has already released a bit of information, saying that the 45 nm Phenom II has reached 6.3 GHz cooled with liquid nitrogen, and the pre-release press information indicates that overclocking margins could be as substantial as the potential of a Core 2 processor. However, Phenom II isn't here yet. But AMD {has} just introduced a new Athlon X2 product, which is based on the Phenom's Stars core. We're taking a look at the Athlon X2 7000-series, which brings AMD's dual-core performance up a bit.

The Athlon X2 7000-Series: Phenom Recycled

While AMD's upcoming Phenom II processor represents a new product, shrunk to the new 45 nm DSL SOI process and with more cache memory, the Athlon X2 7000-series is nothing short of the already-well-known Phenom on the bug-fixed B3 stepping. You can tell this by the model numbers, which all end in 50. The 7000 model number most likely was chosen to compete with Intel's Core 2 Duo E7000 series, which includes the same total amount of cache memory. However, while the new Athlon X2 7000 comes with 512 KB L2 cache per core and an additional 2 MB shared L3 cache for both cores, Core 2 Duo E7000 just has its 3 MB shared L2 cache

I have an HP dv7t-7000 series quad edition notebook with a 1600x900 screen and nvidia geforce gt 650m graphics card. I wanted to upgrade the screen to the full hd 1920x1080 screen and found this:

http://www.lcds4less.com/HP-laptop-lcd-screens/682228-001.shtml

I decided this was the best fit because I got the manuel here:

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03221579.pdf

My question is: Can I upgrade to this new fhd screen? Is it compatible?
 

A:HP DV7T-7000 Series Screen Upgrade

I dont see anywhere that says that screen will be compatible with your system, additionally i'm guessing this screen is of different dimensions.

I just bought the highest spec Inspiron - 8gb ram, 4k display, ssd+hdd & I got few issues.

Firstly, the problem with the track pad. Right out of the box the *** track pad was glitchy. The left click wouldn't register all the time, and the track-pad it self has so much play. I get this is their cheaper line, but can anyone else confirm this same build quality? And if they have the same problem with the left click. Right click registers 100% of the time.

Secondly, my windows boots really quick. But there is this weird freaking lag I feel. If I put my laptop on sleep or shut the lid and continue from where I left off every single folder I open is so slow. And regardless of restarting my pc or not, maximizing or minimizing windows has this stutter feel to it. Like the windows fall behind...

I have changed the setting to performance vs visual. I have updated the bios as per Tech support, updated the video card & windows; I still get this really bad lag. I have windows 10 on pc, and I want to know how to fix this issue. I would also like to know if anyone else is experiencing this stuff. And apparently my in home warranty only covers track pad but not the software side of it. The sales person did a poor job at explaining the warranty side by saying everything is covered with in home warranty.

$1600. was it worth it. We will see in 2 weeks. Help

Recently my laptop screen started to go black randomly. I think that the issue started after one of the Dell Updates. What's interesting in never happens during gaming, only when using a browser, Word, etc or left idle. When it happens the laptop is completely unrensponsive the only thing I can do is to hold the power button to turn off the laptop. Also when the screen goes black it seems like the backlight it's still on. I tried already tried to update both GPU's drivers, BIOS drivers, reseted BIOS to default settings and change power settings to maximum but it still happens.

Hi HAMSTERSKY,
Seems like you have tried most possible steps to resolve the issue. What is the current OS installed on the machine? Are there any bluescreens or system crashes?
Connect an external monitor and test the system.
Create a new admin account and test - http://bit.ly/1JoFhcw - link for windows 10
Try reinstalling the video drivers from the vendor site - Intel - http://intel.ly/1Py9EoB and http://www.geforce.com/ for nvidia driver for your specific OS.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.
If the system is under warranty, write me a private conversation with the service tag, your name and email address. 
Keep us updated.

Hi, I have a question that's not directly related to the original post but it also has to do with the Inspiron 7559. I've owned mine for ~3 mo. Two days ago it installed an NVIDIA driver update. Last night a game I was playing suddenly froze and I had to force quit, but after I restarted the game (at which time my internet browsers were also open but they were only displaying gmail and another simple website with no multimedia playing), the computer completely froze. Mouse didn't work, and ctrl-alt-delete didn't work. I finally tried to force shutdown the laptop by holding the power button for a long time, but that also didn't work, which was worrying. This laptop has an internal battery, so I couldn't just remove the battery to force a shutdown. I ended up unplugging the external power and letting the laptop run its battery out so that it shut itself down.
This only happened once, and the laptop turned on ok this morning, but I'm worried that if a similar situation happens again, I wouldn't have any other options if the power button doesn't work like it's supposed to.

A:RE: Inspiron 15 7559

Hi GYDELLCOMM,
Are there any bluescreens / system crashes? Does the system overheat? What is the current OS installed on the system?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/24WBGxK
If the system tends to work fine, create a system restore point, so you could always restore the system back to a functional state if any SW issue is caused.
If the issue reoccurs at any point, then 
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.
Create a new local admin account and check - http://bit.ly/1JoFhcw
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - leave the system in BIOS environment with the adapter plugged in and check if the system freezes at any point. There is a system clock in BIOS that keeps ticking - if the system freezes at any point, then the system clock would have frozen.
Write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.
P.S. I have moved your thread to a new post as it is a different issue to the original post on the old thread.

My contention is that the sales dept. original misunderstood their product and sold me a machine that does not perform the function requested.  They misrepresented the product.
I had the Laptop for 2 weeks before i started having issue with display drivers,  was email tech supports for another 2 weeks before i was able to get any type of help. While on the phone i was asking question about this laptop, and the Tech Support told me i never should have bought this.. its made to do the type of graphic design work i do.
So i immediately called customer care, they wouldnt return my laptop cause i missed my widow by 3 days, Even though it was i was with Tech support for almost 3  1/2 weeks of setting up times to get my laptop looked at, in which Dell missed the schedule appointments  2x..
Sale reps are not educated on the product and shouldnt be selling with proper education..
now im stuck in limbo waiting for a tech to come change out my mother board, honestly as soon as its fixed its going to ebay..

I bought this last week, I have installed a new ssd drive alongside the the original drive. I cannot get the OS to install without errors, I have tried various usb sticks, tried using a Dell recovery usb made on the laptop and from a downloaded image, nothing works. I tried to contact support and I keep getting sent to the Dutch website - as that is where the laptop originated. I would like to obtain a proper dell recovery disc but cannot. as I am told it does not apply to my system - even though I bought it through the UK website?
Any Dell support there to help? I would like my warranty applied to when I registered the laptop - not February and the laptop origin updated to UK

I just bought this Inspiron 15 7559, used.  The previous owner says it was working perfectly when he sent it to me.
When I received it (Oct 24), it would not boot up.  I'd press the power button, and the power button and keyboard backlight would come on, and a fan would come on for about 2 seconds and then stop, but that was it.  Also, the status light would alternate flashing white a few times, then amber.  We took the battery and memory out, and did a power reset.  Replaced the memory and plugged in the AC adapter, and the computer started up.  So we put the battery back in, and everything was good.
Less than a week later (Oct 30), I was using the computer, just checking Facebook and email and such, and the screen went crazy and froze up.  All I could do was do a force shutdown.  But when I tried to turn it back on, it was doing the same thing it did when I received it.  We tried what we did before, removing battery and memory and resetting power and all that, but it still will not come on.  I ran the LCD BIST test, and the screen did come on and flash different colors, so I know the screen itself still works.
The laptop is still under warranty, so I could send it in.  Or, the person I got it from said they'd give me my money back if they had to.  I just wanted to find out if it was something I could possibly fix myself, before having to send it off for who knows how long, or returning it to the previous ow...

A:Inspiron 7559 - Will not Boot up

Alicia.You will need to wait for the warranty to transfer before you can send it in for repairs. The transfer could take 2-4 weeks to get the warranty transferred to your name. You can take the battery out,remove the power adapater and hold the power button down for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Put the battery back in and turn it on. If that does not work it will  need to be repaired under the warranty.

I bought this laptop exactly one month ago, and I haven't had a single problem until today. I was in the middle of typing when my keyboard suddenly stopped working. I went to restart the driver, but nothing worked, so I decided to just shut down the computer and wait it out. The laptop started shutting down, with the screen off and everything, however after a while the fan was still gently going, indicating it was still on, and the light on the power button was still on as another indicator that it was STILL on. Holding down the power button doesn't shut the computer off no matter how long I press it, and it just won't turn off or on, as if it's stuck trying to turn off but can't completely. The keyboard is, I assume, still not working, so maybe the power button is also broken.
Windows 10 automatically updated about 4 days ago for me, but I hadn't had any problem with it. The laptop has been working perfectly until today. I desperately can't afford to lose my files, is there a way to fix this/has this happened before with a solution? I could try taking the battery out as well but I don't think I have the proper equipment to take out the torx screws around the battery.

New laptop arrived today.
First boot no issues, second boot, error message which locked the system as follows:
"Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 353.82 stopped responding and has successfully recovered"
Whole system froze, left it for thirty minutes then had to turn off using the power button, and the same thing happened again, restarted, system ran tests, this time it booted okay, so downloaded latest Nvidia drives and updated the system, all on the system fine, then it rebooted and I got a BSOD that it was impossible to recover from the system basically just rebooted on to the same screen on a regular basis this one is
"DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION", google sends up some many potential answers, finally got in to the advanced system menu and rebooted into safe mode, removed 960M from device manager and then rebooted, no issues.
Ten minutes later, BSOD as above.

Resetting windows and it is buggered, still have the DPC_Watchdog_Violation.
Anything we can do about this or it is just a return and refund?

Hello.

So i received my laptop and decided to install some games on it. I had some issues in one of them and a friend of mine suggest my  to do a Factory reset and when it was doing it i received an error message. I had to do it with a flash drive. I downloaded the ISO file from Microsoft.

I then went to the Dell Support Page. Is there any other driver i need to download and install? i selected scan device & download automotically. I downloaded gForce Experience separately.

I saw an option called PC diagnostic, i wanted to run it. I selected all the devices/hardware on the list.
Is it normal that it lasted 6 hours and something?

Another thing. During some stages of the test, my CPU & Memory usage were on or above 90% (i only had 4 Windows of Microsoft Edge)

Where is the HDD located? is it normal to get hot/warm on the left bottom side? (left side of the touch pad)
Thank you so much
