Inspiron 7559 unable to detect the power supply

Q: Inspiron 7559 unable to detect the power supply

My laptop is less than 2 weeks old and everytime I turn it on, it gives me a bios screen saying it can't detect the power supply. I'm using the 130 watt power supply that came with it. Any ideas on what the issue could be?

A: Inspiron 7559 unable to detect the power supply

Hi Scooch,
I would suggest you to update the BIOS on the computer. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, then download the BIOS required onto the system and install it.
http://dell.to/18r60nI
Also, we will need to determine if the issue is with the AC adapter or Battery. We will have to check the status of the adapter in the BIOS; if the adapter is not detected properly the system will continue to receive power but will not charge the battery. Please follow the steps mentioned below to check if the adapter is detected properly.

Start the computer by pressing the power button
Press the F2 key 2-3 times you will now be on the BIOS screen.
Under the Main Tab look for the option that says AC Adapter Type If the Adapter Type says Unknown or None with the adapter plugged in.
Reconnect the adapter to the machine and if the status now shows as Unknown then the AC Adapter needs to be replaced.
Also, I would suggest you to run a thorough test on the battery. You can download Support assist from the link below and run the PC CHECKUP on Battery to check for issues

Please let me know the findings.

I have tried repeatedly uninstalling and reinstalling both intel and nvidia drivers, using the stock dell drivers and the latest from each manufacturer.  Did a clean install of windows.  The computer beeps when I plug in the monitor but other than that pretends as if it doesn't exist.  Nothing shows up on boot even on the 2nd monitor.  It shows up as a grey screen in display properties but attempts to clone/extend display doesn't do anything.  I can't change resolution or anything either.

Just since yesterday my six week old Inspiron 7559 sometimes fails to start and when it does this, the Power and Battery Status Light blinks, two times amber then seven times white, repeats forever.  What does this 2/7 blink mean?  Is it a clue to what is wrong?  The laptop does start sometimes if I hold it at an angle.  Makes me think something is not connected properly inside.  Any ideas?  

A:Inspiron 7559 Power Status Light Blinks

Hi,
System LEDs are not Diagnostic Indicators. I’d suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below and check for issue resolution.

Switch off the computer.
Disconnect the AC adapter from the system.
Remove the battery from the computer.
Press and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.
Then connect back all the peripherals and check for issue resolution.

Also, I would suggest you reseat a few components, like memory, hard drive and optical drive and see if that makes a difference. In the link below punch in the system service tag or express service code and you can access the user manual for removing and reseating components. http://dell.to/18r60nI Please let me know if this helps.

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.

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.

Long story short. My power supply shorted mid week while my computer was booting up. Snap, crackle and then a dead computer. I replaced the power supply after 3 days and crossed my fingers. Computer came up but was slow going though the USB configuration in post. Taking about 2 to 3 minutes to get though the post and then load Windows XP pro.

Eveything seems to work except all my USB ports do not pickup any thing plugged into them. I have 4 on the back of the MOB and 4 extra on the case in the front. I uninstalled the USB controller, shut down the computer and started it back up. Found alll the controllers and installed them again but after they all were found it showed 3 unknown device when I checked in device manager. I did not have any usb devices attached or plugged in at that time. I then decided to flash the bios with latest version which went fine. No luck with the usb. Updated my intel chipset to the latest from ASUS. Uninstalled and reinstalled the USB controller. USB configuration now zips by in the post, no unknown devices showing up in hardware manager but the usb ports still do not detect anything when I plug into them. I have devices that need the USB ports.....printer, cd rom, zip drive, several thumb drives. ?????? Do not know what to try next except to reformat a HD, install windows and start over. Did not want to spend several days doing that if I do not need to. Anyone have any suggestion? (my profile has my computer specs)

Hi, I have been thinking of upgrading my inspiron 580s desktop for a while now. I checked the unit and it currently has a integrated HD (R) 4000 Graphics unit and a 250W power supply. I know I need to upgrade the power supply for a new card but what semi powerful cards are able to operate with the unit and that can fit in the unit since the max height is 3 inches (checked the case and the outlets). 
So to sum it up is there any power supplies that are able to fit inside the unit and that are compatable with the unit. 
Also what GPU's can work with the unit due to the space restrictions and the age restrictions of the unit since it was produced in late 2009-2010

There are no upgrades.  The case is too small to accommodate a better power supply.

I am looking for a 400 Watt or more power supply under $60 Which will be compatible with my Dell Inspiron 531. The reason I am needing this is because I recently purchased a Nvidia 9600 GSO video card and my computer [I guess to save them some money] does not have the connector required to connect the video cards power adaptor to the power supply. I am looking for a power supply that will let me connect this video card to it AND have connectors for my hard drive dvd driver etc which are sata I believe.

Or if you want a power supply that you can use afterwards, (next time build your computer rather than buying a Dell, we will advice ) get the 600 W version: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341010
OCZ power supplies are good quality, and cheap.
But there is a slight possibility that you will need a special-made power supply for your Dell. Though, I googled a bit, and saw a power supply that was said to be "made" for your Dell, it was actually physically the size of a normal ATX power supply, and had all the same connections (at least if it doesn't have a custom 24-pin mobo connector) as a normal ATX PSU.

I have a Dell Inspiron 660 desktop.
The good news is that I have a pretty high quality HD video camera.  The bad news is that it requires a firewire port to connect with my computer.  No problem I thought. I got a PCI card to provide one.  It requires that a power cable be plugged into it for it to work.  I popped open the case expecting to find the usual compliment of unused power lines available for just such a purpose.  There are in fact none at all.

Hello,

My brother has a Dell Inspiron 530s, and it needs a new power supply. Could anyone possibly tell me what type of power supply I will need? I know it all depends on what type of connectors and wattage. I know that I will need at least a 250-watt power supply, but I'm not sure about the connectors. I tried to look it up on their website but they didn't specify. I just don't want to have to buy a power supply from dell's website, I'd prefer to get one from newegg.com or amazon.

Thanks in advance.

That's a SFF [small form factor] power supply. Doubt you'll find one that is higher watt rated. Amazon has the following:

and this one

I do not see any screws or anything holding the drive in place. When I press the clip on the side of the case to release the drive, it slides out about 1/2 inch. That is the maximum that it slides out. I could really use some help in removing this drive. Thanks!

Hi Everyone,
I apologise if this has been asked previously, but i wasn't 100% clear in the other answers to this,
I have a Dell Inspiron 3847 desktop (not slim), purchased in Jan 2015. It has an intel core i5 4460 cpu and an INVIDIA Geforce GT 705 graphic card, 16gig DDR3 ram,
It has always run very quite, but just recently (within the last couple of weeks) i have noticed it making more sound then normal, it's soft but a constant high pitched sound which appears to be coming from the stock 300w psu,
If i wanted to change the psu, what make and model would be compatable?, sorry, but i am not really savy with voltages and figures etc, that is why i have asked purely for a make and model number that has been used in this model before, and would work,
From what i have read on this forum, a few people seem to have had issues with the stock psu after a period of time. Any recommendations would be greatfully appreciated, especially from users of the Inspiron that have upgraded their psu,

Thanks Again,
Mr Anthony

Hey. I'm mainly looking to upgrade my video card. Which is pretty much going to require me to upgrade the power supply also. Unless someone throws a video card in my lap that will work on a 250W power supply. The problem I'm running into is this: my tower is too slim for pretty much everything. Dell sells upgrades through their site but I'm wondering if there are other brands that sell something better/cheaper/fitworthy. Thanks in advance.
 

A:Upgrading power supply and video card for a Dell Inspiron 530s

These use a slimmer PSU if I remember correctly.

Your probably going to need to replace the case to be honest, which will also mean you'll need to replace the CPU cooler, because Dell use a screw-in design, which relies on the tray behind the motherboard having screws to hold the CPU cooler in place.

You could just get a bigger Dell case, pretty much any Inspirion or Vostro case will fit your hardware, plus you can then use a ATX PSU too. That will be your cheapest solution, purely because you only have the case to purchase.

If you want an aftermarket case your going to need the case, and a new CPU cooler, and possibly a new motherboard, dependant on whether you can remove the insulation tabs on each side of the cpu cooler mounting holes.

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

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.

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.

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.

When we purchased this laptop, I tried to verify with Dell Support what ssd would fit before the laptop arrived so we could order and have it I hand. I was told the m.2 2280 ssd format was correct and ordered the Samsung 850 EVO. After both arrived, I went to install the ssd and the slot was not the same as the layout of the ssd - it only had one notch vs. two for the Samsung 850. I did some research and found out it the mobo was designed for the pcie m.2 ssd. So I sent back the 850 and ordered the Samsung 950 PRO. I installed it and nothing - could not get the laptop to recognize the ssd no matter what. SO here it is, about 8 months later and I still have a $200 ssd doing nothing. Anyone have any ideas? We'd love to put the operating system on the ssd and use the 1 TB hybrid for everything else!

When you installed the Evo card, did you check to make sure the system was setup (F2 at powerup) for AHCI mode - NOT RAID mode (which likely was the default when the system arrived)?

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.

Hi,
I've had the Dell Inspiron 15 7559 4k laptop since around January 2016 and I've had a lot of blue screen errors. It's always the 'whea_uncorrectable_error' blue screen that I get.
It mostly happens when I'm in the middle of using a program like Gamemaker, Photoshop or Maya and even when browsing in Chrome, but it's never once happened while playing a game, so I thought it might of had something to do with the Intel graphics, which I changed the drivers multiple times and nothing changed.
Most recently, the laptop has been giving me a critical error (shown in Dell's Support Assist) while going to Sleep or Hibernate mode. I noticed it when I had closed the lid for it to go to Sleep mode, about 2 hours later, once it automatically goes to Hibernate mode, the laptop would just switch off. I noticed this because when I switched it back on, I would have to switch the numlock back on to enter my password and none of my programs were still loaded. I checked Support Assist and another Critical Error had popped up, but with no error report.
I've tried reseting the BIOS, but nothing changed apart from the function key was reset - I've never needed to change anything in the BIOS. All drivers and the BIOS is up to date. I also switched off Fast-boot as it was one of the many things I read that might help the issue, but didn't. This was a clean install onto the M.2 drive I bought, but also did a full reset via the Windows setup thing, to... Read more

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

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..

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

My Inspiron 7559 is an i7 model, with an added 8GB RAM stick.Since the past week, games which used to run at 60 fps are now running at below 30 fps (Witcher 3 used to give me 50fps and now gives me 15-20fps).
I have already tried the following:
1) Disabling Game DVR in the Xbox app
2) Doing a clean install of  all drivers available on Nvidia's website
3) Installing all the above drivers after deleting the old one using Display Driver Uninstaller
4) Installing the driver available on Dell's website
5) Checking all the settings in the Nvidia Control Panel
As it sits now, the laptop is running on driver version 368.71 from Dell's support page.
Also, Here is what I've noticed:
If I launch a game immediately after installing the graphics driver, it performs at its actual 60fps level. However, 15-20 seconds into any game, the game crashes with no "XXXXXX Stopped working" dialog box. If I launch the game again, it then gives me the horribly low fps. This isn't specific to any game. The Crew, Rocket league, Witcher 3, Battlefield 4, Project CARS, you name it.
I am now at my wit's end on how to solve this problem.
Please help.

So I've been having some serious issues with poor performance on my Inspiron 15 7559.  It's really any one thing, most of my interactions are bad.  When I try to play videos from sites besides YouTube or Netflix I get a very stuttery playback.  It also loads pages slowly as well on chrome and firefox.  I've had Dell reimage the drive with Windows, and have had the motherboard already replaced due to a separate issue with the speaker.  Have anyone else encountered these issues?  After spending $1200 on a laptop I would expect much better performance (at least equal with my 3 year old Alienware, which has an older generation processor yet is super smooth).

Just got my computer back from Dell tech support having sent it because of an issue with no audio output device installed and the red x on the toolbar. The computer is in the exact same state as before I sent it with nothing fixed. I've tried reinstalling the drivers multiple times, checked if audio services were running and all of that. Feels like a huge waste of money at this point and is especially disappointing because this computer was actually a gift for someone. Has anyone had this issue with this computer and have it resolved without resorting to an external usb sound driver?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 7559 No Audio

You can diagnose this by performing a system recovery (reset the laptop back to the original factory configuration.) If there is still no audio immediately after recovery, before getting on the internet, then the audio hardware has failed and Dell will have to fix it under the terms of the warranty. In other words they could not say it is a software issue and therefore not covered.
If the recovery does fix it, but the problems recurs after getting on the internet, then probably some Windows Updates-related issue.

I've had my Dell Inspiron 7559 since Christmas Eve 2015 and I have the 4K touchscreen i7 6700HQ 16GB Ram GTX 960M 4GB VRAM, 128GB SSD, 1TB HDD and I want to start with the minor issue about some pixels being blurry and the wrong color, I painted a single free form white line on paint on a black background and inspecting the pixels closely I saw that some pixels were turning green despite being supposed to appear white.
And sometimes automatically the screen adapts its lighting depending on what range of pixel color takes up the most space, for example resizing  a steam window (dark) will affect the overall mood of the screen slightly changing the color of other windows, especially noticeable with white windows.

My main complaint is this: I've had lots of trouble with audio.

Hi,
My new Inspiron 7559 wont detect my LG monitor and I cant figure out why so would appreciate any advice that can be offered.    
Heres the problem:

Dell Laptop works fine apart from this issue.
Monitor works fine when connected to my old desktop pc (directly into an amd radeon graphics card via hdmi)
Dell Laptop with same HDMI to my 32" lcd tv works fine as second monitor.

This hopefully rules out a hardware fault.  The HDMI on the dell laptop works to a tv, the hdmi lead works and the monitor works with another source input.  For some reason the dell laptop will not detect the monitor.
I can't try another output as the laptop only has hdmi out. 
I've tried updating all drivers no luck
When the laptop is plugged into the TV,  two generic pnp monitors are displayed in device manager
When the laptop is plugged into the monitor only one pnp monitor is shown (the laptop screen)
Have tried deleting drivers and rebooting with basic drivers but no luck.
Monitor is a LG m228wd - have contacted LG and they say the problem lies with the laptop. 
Machine specs:
i7 6700HQ,
Intel HD graphics 530, drivers 20.19.15.4352

Hi All, I recently got a Dell Inspiron 7559. It came with a 8GB Skhynix "hmt41gs6bfr8a-pb no aa 1506" RAM stick. I'd like to upgrade it to 16GB. I thought I had bought the same 8GB RAM model from ebay, but I had received an 8 GB Skhynix "hmt41gs6bfr8a-pb na aa 1511". Are they two completely different models because of their different nomenclature? Can I still use it to upgrade my ram? Thank you

A:Dell Inspiron 7559 ram upgrade

There's only one memory socket on this model, so an 8G isn't going to get you an upgrade.  You need a 16G module to upgrade.
These are available, but brace yourself of the price - they're expensive:

Hi
I have a new inspiron 7559. Sanity checks like updates and antivirus interference are all good.
The audio driver comes with this maxxsense audio "enhancement" filter. There's a bug in the driver that causes it to re-enable itself after I switch it off. I want to turn all the filtering off and just get my pure sound, but simply opening the config window from the control panel re-enables the master switch. it shouldn't do that: it should stay off when I turn it off.
Can I report this to dell and get a driver bugfix update somehow? I get the feeling dell itself doesn't lurk on this forum much and I'm assuming they won't be seeing this.

If that's the case (as is common with Insprons), this system is software-controlled - the Intel GPU alone has a connection to the screen and handles all video data -- even if it's processed through the nVidia GPU.  You cannot disable the Intel GPU nor make the nVidia GPU the primary one - the hardware is wired such that the nVidia GPU is a co-processor - not a true discrete GPU.

I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 15 7559 a month ago. The first week it was amazing with no problems at all. 
Then when I was working on it, left it plugged in and left is for a while, then came back to it after 1 hour or so, I noticed that the battery was discharging. 
Did not mind it until it went to "plugged in, charging" 0% and it shut off completely. 
I tried to turn it on several times and it did not turn on. 
Called Dell service center and advised to remove the battery. I cannot remove the battery completely because of the screw type but managed to remove the cables. 
I turn it back on and it worked again. But after a few days the probem kept recurring. 
Its going like "plugged in, charging" but it is not charging. Or "1 hour 05minutes to full charge" but after an hour it will be "1 hour 40minutes to full charge". I mean what gives. 
Have done all that was advised in the internet but not hing is working. 
I have done restart task manager, uninstall API, and all that, but the problem is recurring.
BIOS was updated recently also. So is it hardware of software. 
Please help for anymore ideas?
Its brand new, it rocks when it is working, but I dont have the patience to kept on checking for hte battery status. It is getting annoying also. 
Thank you.

Hi SANDMAN99,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible? 
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
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.These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
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.

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

Hey everyone,
I was using my Dell Inspiron 7559 this weekend and suddenly the audio from my headphones quit. I had no problems in the first month I had the laptop, and the audio from the speakers still works fine. When I plug in the headphones the dialog box also doesn't show asking me about the audio device connected to the port. I know the headphones work on my phone, and I've tried deinstalling the Realtek audio driver and using the native driver. Nothing seems to work. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm grateful for any help!
Best,
Cameron

My 7559 laptop is still relatively new but I feel like ever since an update in June it's been acting strange. It froze for no reason and wouldn't shut off when I held the power button. I had to unplug it and let the battery die. When I restarted everything was fine so I ran McAfee got nothing and moved on.
That said, ever since it can't seem to handle sleep mode as well as it use too. I was able to leave it on for a few weeks at a time and now I feel like I have to turn it off daily or it's Memory goes up. It's also frozen once since the initial freeze but that time it actually let me hold the power to turn it off. 
I'm fairly certain I'm not the only one experiencing this. I think it's the update that caused it, but I don't really have any proof other than McAfee hasn't found anything. I've been keeping the task manager up to keep an eye out but the only things that are noticeable are System and Compressed memory and McAfee. Well those and Chrome but chrome's always been a hog. 
I can deal with it for now, but I'm hoping there will be an update or something to fix it. I'm really just posting to see if anyone else has experienced this or something similar.

There is no need to wait until the battery runs down to turn off a frozen laptop nowadays. Simply hold down the power button until it shuts off. It will take 30-40 seconds.
You can uninstall updates if you think there is a bad update. Open Settings, Update, Advanced Options, View update History, Uninstall updates. Not all updates can be uninstalled but some can. You should also check the Event Viewer for clues as to what might be hanging up the computer.

Hello,

I installed Windows 7 on a 7559 and installed all drivers listed on the support page. Unfortunately, there is no integrated webcam driver listed on the support page. I checked the Device Manager in W7 and did not see any Imagine Devices listed. After calling the support line and explaining  my issue multiple times to the same person I decided to come here for some help.
So, how can I go about getting the integrated webcam in my 7559 to work on Windows 7? Is there a driver available? 
Thanks!

Hi,

I recently bought inspiron 15 7559 i7 and found that the keyboard is bilingual.
It's little bit hard for me to type as the enter key is really small. 
Would it be possible to get another keyboard (with different layout) and replace it? 

Thanks

Hello,
I have bought this laptop about 2 months ago. Since i bought it, I have noticed that it's performance is not what i should expect.
I mean, i can be in Google Chrome viewing a page, and in the moment i scroll using my mouse, the laptop like freezes for a milisecond and then continues. Same happens when playing videogames, i can be playing at low/ultra details, 60+ frames per second, but every now and then i get a frame drop and then it goes back to where it was before, it's super annoying and shouldn't be happening.
I always thought it was something with the game, that it was not well optimised but it seems to be the computer.
Things i have done:
1. I reinstalled Windows 10 using the software provided by Microsoft.
2. All my drivers are up to date
What could it be? my laptop specs are:
6th Generation Intel Core i7-6700HQ Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz)]NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB GDDR58GB Single Channel DDR3L 1600MHz (8GBx1)1TB (5400rpm) Hybrid HDD with 8GB Flash
All these things occur with the laptop plugged or not, it doesn't matter. Gaming, i have used Balanced and High Performance battery mode but i don't see any difference. This has happened to me for example in CS:GO, LoL, World of Warships, etc.

This is a benchmark i did with HDTune: http://imgur.com/a/wf68f

A:Dell Inspiron 7559 video stuttering

When you are saying that it is stuttering, does it do this all the time or is it something that will be working and then you get a quick stutter and then things return to normal?  If this is happening, it's most likely just a point in time where the files that the processor needs to access files haven't been loaded into RAM yet.  Your processor then has to wait for the HDD to load the file and continue on from there.  Does Google Chrome do this all the time?  Again, when it first boots or if there is something that computer has to load on the webpage such as Flash or anything like that, it can cause a temporary delay in the time that it is loading.  If it's doing it constantly then it might be something to look at, but once in awhile, it's not uncommon for this to happen during loading.  5400RPM is slowest speeds for HDD and it can cause your computer to have to wait for loading here and there.

Hi everyone,
I want to exchange the HDD in my Inspiron 7559 with a normal SATA SSD (I have a Crucial MX300 750 GB).
I did that, and when I'm starting the PC now, the screen stays black, although the light on the power button turns on. To clarify, I can't enter the BIOS, I don't see the DELL logo, the screen just turns, and stays, black. After switching back to the original HDD, the system behaves normally.
First I figured that the laptop required some files on the HDD to start, so I reinstalled the original HDD and cloned it via the Crucial cloning software. That didn't help, the screen still stays perfectly black.
I tried detaching power-adapter and all USB devices, to no avail.
What can I do here? I don't want to keep using the original HDD until Amazon finally has my M.2 SSD in stock. I already updated the BIOS to 1.1.8, after which I was able to boot from the SSD ONCE, after the next reboot the problem was back.
I'd appreciate your help!

Hello, I'm having a small problem with my new Dell laptop.
I can't find the option where I could set my keyboard backlight to stay on constantly. It keeps falling asleep (turning off) after a short period of time. It is really annoying late in the evening as I always have to wake it up. Is there any way I could turn off the automatic sleep mode or atleast prolong it?
Thanks in advance :)

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.

Hi,

I bought a Inspiron 15 7000 Series (7559) less than a month ago. Today, when I was playing an online game, the keyboard suddenly stopped responding while game is still otherwise running perfectly with mouse still responding. After about 30 seconds, the laptop freezes, with sound still playing and fans running at high speed.
After about 5 minutes, game music stopped and turned into a light buzzing sound, fans still running at high speed.  I tried to press the power button to force shut down but had no effect after faithfully holding it down for a good 1 minute. 
The laptop is still buzzing right now and it has been an hour. I will have to wait until the battery is dead.
My question is, what the heck is wrong with this practically brand new laptop? I don't want a buzzing heater on my desk, not at this price. :(
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

I have a brand new Inspiron 7559 and noticed that occassionally it registers the letters I type twice. After some quick research I realized that it is a common issue with various dell llaptops, although not with my model. Is it a software/bios issue or is it a faulty keyboard? does anyone else happen to have that issue with that specific laptop model?

As the title says how exactly do you achieve this?

I have an ISO Ran RUFUS 2.6
GPT Partition Scheme for UEFI
Fat 32
8192 Default
X Quick Format
X Create a bootable disk using
X Create Extended label and Icon Files

so the next part is the Kicker Dell did a number on their Bios and rather than using standard logic as we have done so many years just setting the boot order to "Boot USB" first, you "Only" have the option to create a "Boot Program"!!! so you select your USB Drive then which ever file you want it to boot I'm Assuming? So I tried selecting Setup, bootmgr.efi, and autorun with no results!

I get the secured boot error crap, turn that off and I get Legacy BIOS (that defeats the entire point) What the hell happened to Win95 Boot Discs and FDISK?

I am so frustrated with this garbage, I found out the hard way with Windows 10 and trying to nuke the SSD and put a clean install of 8.1 on it.

Any directions especially concerning Dell's wonderful BIOS would be appreciated!

Thanks

The Graphics card was working fine the other night, the next morning when when I booted up I noticed I not longer had the Nvidia control panel or Geforce experience. I looked in device manager and the graphics card was hidden.  I tried uninstalling the drivers and re installing them but the installer said it could not find compatible hardware. I then uninstalled the gpu from device manager and rebooted but it never came back. Im unable to install any drivers and my computer acts like there is no nvidia card.  There is no setting in bios regarding discreet video cards. I've done a full factory reset on the laptop as well and the video card still does not  show up. I have verified i have installed all the latest drivers from the dell website and even spoke with dell support but got after an hour of troubleshooting I've just been handed off to multiple other people some of whom were in departments not able to handle my request. Any ideas?

I bought a Dell Inspiron 15 7559 laptop about a week or so ago and several days later realised some odd USB transfer behaviour. Tried all 3 different usb3.0 ports, same problem.
(Bios was updated immediately after cloning hdd to m.2 ssd and all drivers updated.)
(I swapped the 1TB hybrid drive with a Samsung 850EVO and installed an m.2 Samsung 850EVO) (OS and most files on the m.2 drive)
External hard disk: Transfer of large sizes or even a single large file (GoPro video near 4gb) occurred rather erratically (fluctuating between 90+ and 40+ mb/s) and eventually reaching 0mb/s and pausing there for quite awhile before transferring again at fluctuating speeds, sometimes reaching 0 and pausing again. File transfer completes eventually, but after a ridiculously long time.
The same hard disk works fine with my desktop (writes at a steady 90+mb/s)

External ssd: transfers for awhile before reaching 0 and giving an error code. (works fine with my desktop) (error code: 0x8000745D)

Thumb drive: writes fine at 90-100+mb/s, just like my desktop.  
Notes: File transfer problems mentioned above were from both the m.2 drive and 2.5mm drive, internal transfer from the m.2 to the 2.5mm Samsung 850EVO ran fine. Samsung Magician installed, problems persist with RAPID either enabled or disabled.
 
Solutions I've tried but have not made a difference:
Chkdsk /f /r
Booting into safe mode (transfer problems existed even in safe mode)
Uninstalling and reinstalling usb drivers
Disable/... Read more

I have brand new a Dell Inspiron 7559 (Core i5 model) which i received 2 days ago.  The inbuilt speakers work fine.

When I check the left and right sound in the sound properties, both the test sounds appear on the left side only. The earphones I am using are Klipsch R6. And here are no issues with the earphones since they work perfectly with my phone and other Dell Inspiron laptop.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
