Dell inspiron 15 7000 7559 Battery Extender (External battery pack)

Q: Dell inspiron 15 7000 7559 Battery Extender (External battery pack)

I've been looking around for a battery extender for an adapter with output 6.7A, 19.5Volts -- 130Watts.
No luck so far, as most of the items I found had max 5A output.
Does anyone know of a solution to carrying extra juice on the go for the inspiron 7559? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Dell inspiron 15 7000 7559 Battery Extender (External battery pack)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi, i have an Inspiron 15 7559. Last week my battery  was damaged and can't use it anymore, since then I have low fps while gaming (gta v, witcher 3, etc.), I've read there is a kind of throttling when there is no battery, maybe the turbo boost is not being enabled.
Is there a way I can make the laptop work again like before, I can't buy a new battery yet because I live in Peru and is hard to find this battery model.

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.

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.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

Recently whenever i attempt to play a game on my laptop (Inspiron 15-7000 7559) it powers off, just like that, instantly (not rebooting). It depends on the game/settings how long it takes but usually around a few minutes and it powers off to black, without a blue screen or whatever notification.
First thing i did was testing different drivers for the gpu, with no result. 

So i started searching the internet ofcourse and i found everyone saying it's due to overheating. I have cleaned the laptop of dust, but there really wasn't that much. Then i reapplied thermal paste (arctic silver 5), it lowered temperatures a bit but not drastically (I have no warranty left so it's no problem opening it).
Temperatures of my cpu never go above 89 degrees C. gpu around 65 while gaming. Seems pretty normal to me.  
i also reinstalled the bios with the original dell driver, same with the gpu driver. still no result.
The event log wasn't really that helpfull because it never gave any reasons, only that the shutdown was unexpected.
I also used MiniToolBox and that gave me a few errors with more info, if necessary i can post those here as well. 
i also tried a full reinstallation of windows with no result.
so yeah i'm desperate by now.

p.s. Minecraft seems to run fine, even on all settings maxxed through the roof.

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series 7559 laptop that came pre-loaded with Windows 10.  The Anniversary update  for WIn 10 refuses to install with error code 0x80070003 and I have tried multiple things from online research all to no avail.  Tired of the thing constantly downloading the update for it to fail... Sick of Win 10 frankly as well as it truly is horrid.  My question:  is there anything preventing me from reformatting my C Drive and installing Win 7 Ultimate x64 on this laptop model?  I assume I could pick up the needed Win 7 drivers from the Dell site.  Please advise.

A:Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series 7559 - Install Windows 7

It can be done, but because Microsoft removed the ability to boot Windows 7 USB media on Skylake platform system (which your system is), it is going to require the preparation of a new set of boot media -- you cannot simply make a Windows 7 or 7-SP1 boot medium and do the install.  It isn't a trivial exercise.  And because Windows 7 lacks support for the advanced power management of the Skylake platform, the system will run hotter and with reduced battery runtimes.
You might be better off doing a clean install of Windows 10 including the anniversary update (the ISOs are available from Microsoft) than in downgrading to Windows 7.  Also, unless you have 10 Pro, you don't have downgrade rights so you'll need to have an unused license key for Windows 7 (they're no longer legally available for sale).
For the process, see

My Inspirion 15 - 7000 Series 7559 is still under the 1 year normal warranty.

The plastic around the left hinge of the laptop seams to have given away and they computer starts to crack up and open when you want to move the screen to open or close it.

I have informed myself on the issue and it seams that Another 20 people have the SAME issue with this dell Inspiron 15 7000 7559 model:  The plastic around the hinge opens up!
Here is the Record of that forum :

 It seams that dell made a sticky post saying hinges are not covered by the warranty. And that the issues is caused by physical damage. the computer is in mint condition and has been taken care  and of course never been drop.

Mr  DELL-Chris  a dell spoke person said on the previous Link I provided:
In our usability labs with volunteers, we noted that the wear and tear on the left hinge was in how users repeatedly incorrectly opened the lid on the right corner putting stress on the left hinge.
Correct = Raise the lid by grasping the center of the lid and opening
Incorrect = Raise the lid by grasping the right corner of the lid and opening which adds twisting torque to the left hinge.
The policy will remain. Hinges are considered a consumable and fall under the Dell Wear & Tear policy.""

Can someone help me with this problem? So I just received my brand new Dell Inspiron 15 3000 and the battery is not charging. It says it's "Plugged In, Charging" but it never goes up and stays at 0%. At first I thought I just need to plug it in for several hours but it's been 5 hours now and still the battery stays at 0%. I tried running the BIOS Diagnostics just to see if there are problems and there's none. The battery status says everything is running normally and the Battery State says it's Idle. I tried draining the flea power several times, removing and reattaching the battery, but to no avail. I'm getting really frustrated and I'm really close to throwing this laptop back to Dell. 
I read somewhere that I have to update the BIOS but it won't update unless the battery is charged at least 10%. Someone also suggested that Windows 8.1 is causing the problem. I haven't even started using this laptop and it's already giving me a *** ton of problems. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks guys! :)

Hi there,

I'm having dell inspiron 3521 laptop. My battery is 4 cell (40WAh) and recently it was permanently failed. So, i decided to replace it with new one. The question is if i replace my 4 cell battery with 6 cell battery, will it leads to any problems? Can some one please help me to resolve this.
Thanks in advance.

A:What will happen when i replace my dell 40WAh battery with 60WAh battery for Inspiron 3521?

As long as the battery is otherwise compatible -- and you realize it will increase the weight AND the size of the notebook (while the 4-cell likely fits entirely inside the system, the 6-cell will protrude from the back of the system), you will be fine.  There's also a big reason (safety among them) why OEM batteries cost more than third-party knockoff units, if that's a consideration.

Hey there,
I've been using my upgraded Inpiron 17R SE happily for a couple of years by now. I've even gone as far as buying an 128GB SSD to futureproof it. This is the only drive - besides the DVD drive - currently present in the laptop. However I've had an issue for quite a while:
Whenever I try to boot the Laptop only using the Battery (even fully charged) it Posts then loads Windows and turns of just before the Login-Screen (I can't see it). When I proceed to turn it back on, it Posts then beeps and says that there is a Real Time Clock Error and gives me the option to proceed booting or to enter Setup.
This however doesn't occur when using the Power-Brick. Moreover it isn't always the case. Sometimes the Laptop boots and works fine just using the battery, but then upon opening a Programm (while under battery-power) it shuts of and gives the same error message again. If it decides to work the battery still lasts for 2-2.5 hours.
I'm really confused to what the problem is. It could be a power delivery problem, but it's still the original battery and laptop with only the HDD changed to a SSD.
I'm aware of it being a rather old machine, but selling it is my only hope for getting a new laptop for college, but I can't sell it in this state. 
I'm at a lost and really really sad because of this issue. I'm sorry for any typos or grammar mistakes, I'm a non native english speaker.

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...

Have just bought a new Inspiron 15 Gaming and noticed that the battery doesn't seem to last nearly as long as the reviews I read. I haven't done a formal check but seem to get only around 4 hours of use, and not particularly hard use (I don't use it for gaming or much in the way of graphics) as it's for business.
Is there any way of checking whether the battery is actually the battery that the configuation says it is? This should be a 451-BBPZ : 74 WHr, 6-Cell Battery (Integrated). I would expect a 74 WHr battery to last a full working day, especially when new. I guess I could take off the bottom cover to check but wondered if there was some other way. There didn't seem to be anything in the BIOS that identifies the battery.
I should add that I'm running Linux.

A:Inspiron 15 7000 Gaming - correct battery?

Your power management settings should list the battery type - there's only one for this model.  And 4-5 hours is about all  you'll ever get from a gaming system like this - especially if it has an i7 CPU and/or a 4K screen.
Even the 97 WHr battery in the XPS 9560 doesn't do much more than 6 hr. with integrated video and a 1080p screen.
If you're looking for all-day battery run, get a system with the smallest, lowest resolution screen you can live with -- and an i3 or Celeron CPU.

I got this laptop recently and ran into an issue when connecting to external displays, in all games I am unable to set my video settings to 60Hz when choosing to project my display to the external screen only. If I duplicate the screen then I have no issue, but I want to be able to close the laptop lid and have 60Hz as an option, otherwise everything shows up as 59Hz which causes stuttering and flickering. The weird thing is that in Windows my refresh rate shows up as 60Hz at 1920x1080 but when launching any game 59Hz is the highest I can go to when set to display as "second screen only" in Windows 10. Please let me know what I could to fix this, and if it is not clear let me know.

Let me start off by saying I love the capabilities of this laptop, but that's where it stops. I got this laptop a few months ago and it has encountered problem after problem, during which process Dell has met it with complacency and inefficiency. 
The original laptop I purchased just refused to turn on one day, I sent it in to Dell and over a month later of constant calling of customer and tech support where I received little to no assistance until I was forced to get upset and ask for a supervisor. Their solution was to not repair my computer or send me a new one, but to send me a refurbished model (I understand that is the policy).
All good right? No, just 2 weeks of having this refurbished model, the battery fails entirely, rendering the laptop a desktop (heaven forbid if I travel). Either Dell has built a model that they cannot support and should discontinue its production, or they are entirely incompetent in repairing, replacing, or refurbishing this model. I will never be purchasing a Dell product again, as I can only imagine that this battery repair will require me to send in this refurbished model yet again -- another month or more without a computer. No one should purchase this model, despite its capabilities, and I highly recommend that Dell look into this model as clearly they are not adept at fixing it.

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.

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.

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,

  Hi, I had bought my laptop in late September of 2016 and am just outside of my warranty period.  I use this laptop for school work (involves some autocad and waveforms 2017 work).  Recently the display has started flashing black with it being more off than on.  This makes the laptop unusable for me as I now have to connect it to an external monitor to use it.  With the desktop extended or cloned the external monitor works fine through HDMI and the laptop screen flashes and pulses.  Some times the screen works fine for a minute and then will go back to flashing.  The first couple of times it happened was while in fullscreen mode watching youtube.  I would close chrome and it would start working normally.  This put me down a software path. 
  I have tried updating both the intel video drivers and the Nvidia drivers.  My current drivers are Nvidia: and Intel:  I recently also updated my BIOS drivers to 1.2.4 to try to solve this issue.  No adjustments I have made in software has made it better and it seems to be getting worse with time.  The screen on this one is the 4k touchscreen.  I mostly keep it in 1080p though due to software compatibility issues. Even with the screen flashing the touchscreen still functions normally and tracks at all corners.  I am hoping this is not a hardware issue as I will be extremely disappointed if that is the case.

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?

Dell support has only been able to tell me to send it in for repairs. That is not really an option for me, and it is a bit ridiculous given that it seems to be software.

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

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?

Over the last 2 days I have been having a problem as indicated in the title of this post. The fault has rectified itself 3 times, but again today, it is back to "battery plugged in, not charging." As I am running the laptop (Windows Vista Home Premium; 32 bit) on the adapter without problems, I assume that the adapter itself may not be faulty.
I also have a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop running Windows 7.  Can I safely use that adapter with the Vista laptop, without causing damage to the Vista ?  If it is safe to do so, and the battery on the Vista starts charging, then it would indicate that the Vista adapter/charger has some kind of fault.
Hoping someone can give me some guidance. Thanks.

If the adapter has the same plug and the same or higher power rating, you can swap them.
Check to see whether the 1545 recognizes the AC adapter or whether it shows unknown (F2 at powerup).  If it shows unknown with two different adapters, you have a bad power jack or a bad mainboard.

I Purchased a Dell N5050 J1KND Battery . I needed to verify that is that battery Genuine Dell Inc. manufactured/marketed or Just a Replica!? Its Part no. is 4YRJH. I Would be highly Grateful to you if you could please verify it for me. Please resolve and reply ASAP. Thank You

A:I Purchased a Dell N5050 J1KND Battery . I needed to verify that is that battery Genuine Dell Inc. manufactured?

This is  not genuine.  The 9C5 would mean the battery was manufactured in March, 2009.  And Dell's labels don't have the date posted as 2017/07/27.

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.
I can post specific specs if needed but here is a screenshot of some of my general specifications: i.gyazo.com/da92a4946a6acafa272ec0811f14c5e3.png

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!

UPDATE: I sent the laptop back to Dell for repairs and they replaced the system board. Unfortunately, it has made no difference and the screen flickering still persists. Really bummed.

Hi everybody,
my warranty expired in January and since then i had only problems. The most recent is that my Microphone doesn't work depending on the angle of the laptop screen!  I'm guessing that some contact or cable is broken. Does anybody have an idea how to fix it / whats the best way to access the damaged cable?
Thanks in advance!
Most expensive laptop i ever had, worst build quality i ever had, most problems i ever had. I am very disappointed in Dell.
