Preferred Solution: To resolve issue in my dell inspion 5558 laptop.

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Dell Inspiron 5558 - Keyboard Backlight Issue

Dell 5558 comes with an optional keyboard. Apparently, the bios is tweaked for machines that come with a backlit keyboard while your machine doesn't. The only option is to purchase and replace a new backlit keyboard from EBAY or AmaZon and install it. That will work, do check out instructions before replacing keyboards.

I am having a boot problem that seems to have occurred right after I removed devices from the usb ports . The usb ports work fine now however.  After I rebooted the system it requested repair or restore disks.  I tried the self repair twice and rebooted twice each time and windows loaded. I would like to go into the repair/recovery and diagnose and fix the problem.  I have made copy of the factory recovery media on a dvd using the Dell software, but after reading some win 8.1 docs that a usb drive is needed as a boot drive in case you can't boot to windows.  Is this correct?
 
This pc also requires update to the application, bios and non critical windows updates as shown below. is there any I order I should do the updates?

I have been having this strange issue that I may just be missing a simple fix.  When I plug in my power cord to my computer my screen shuts off.  It will turn back on once I give it a second and then press the power button to wake it up.  Once I log back in it is all good, but it is still just frustrating.  It is like when I plug in a power source my laptop goes to sleep.  Does anyone know what it could be?  Is it a setting?  Maybe a problem with my power cord?  Or my laptop?  Any help would be much appreciated!

The system can sleep, but not shutdown or hibernate. This just occurred in the last week. A pop showing "Airplane Mode is On/off" in the Windows login screen and will toggle each time I try to shut down. I have tried shut off the laptop wifi, but this made no difference.

I have tried all methods suggested on Dell faq,s to boot xp from cd, pressing F2 only gives me the option of booting windows normally,can anyone tell me how to do a clean install , wipe the hard drive,repartition and reload XP Home.I have also tried pressing F12 to boot from cd. Please help .Thanks Andy

A:Clean install of windows xp on dell inspion 5100 notebook

Hello,

This is Richard from Dell's Online Community Outreach group. The way to boot to the install cd is by pressing F12. You must do this as soon as the Dell logo screen appears which is right after pressing the power button. Pressing F12 will prompt the one time boot menu. Look for CD/DVD/CR-RW, select it by using the up/down arrows. When it is highlighted press the enter key.

When the system tries to boot off the cd-rom drive, there will be a message on screen that says, "Press any key to boot from cd". This is a confirmation that you want to boot from cd-rom instead of the hard drive, just press the space bar to acknowledge the request. Problem is that if you do not press a key within like 3 seconds the system will automatically boot from the hard drive so you must be quick to press the space bar.

This should then take you to the installation process.

Good luck,

Richard B

Please help me, can anybody tell me. What I can upgrade my laptop Dell 15 5558 Core i3 upgrade to Core i7 ? if can how much i spend to do it ?

A:Upgrade Processor Dell 15 5558

You can't change just the CPU - it's permanently soldered so you must swap out the entire mainboard.  It looks like the boards with i7s run between $225-300 depending on speed and whether or not you want discrete video or integrated.
If you now have a 65W PS, you'll need 90W or 130W for an i7 board depending on integrated or discrete video, so add another $30-50 for a power supply.
If you're moving from integrated to discrete video, the heatsink assembly will need to be replaced - add another $30 for that.
If you can't swap the parts yourself, add $100-150 for labor - so all in somewhere between $400-500 to upgrade.
parts-people.com should have the parts.

The crash happens as soon as ac power cord is plugged in, with the USB connector installed in the laptop and the adapter power switch off per the instructions. This adapter uses a combined sata power and data connector..

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 15 5558 Signature edition laptop which runs windows 10. I've only had this laptop for 4 months. I've noticed that the laptop will go off for no apparent reason. I've checked the sleep settings and changed them to no avail. It goes off while I'm reading or watching a movie...just randomly. The only good thing is that when I turn it back on, it returns to whatever I was doing. If I was watching a movie when it went off, if I press the power button I will hear the audio continue while I'm unlocking the lock screen. It's a random thing that happens and it's very frustrating especially as this is a new laptop. Please help

I'll start off by saying I bought my laptop back in Oct of 2015 and I've been using my Inspiron 15 daily, and most part it gets the job done. I'm able to use my Wacom Bamboo easily and Adobe Flash works well enough but takes a minute to open. I've noticed the HDD is starting to show its age already. Bootup takes minutes now, and the Disk is constantly running at 100% when only Chrome is open. I'm no tech expert but seems to be early signs of hard drive failure even though it barely leaves my desk and has about 870GB/1TB free.
So I hopped on Amazon to get a replacement SSD, a SATA 3.0 USB connector, and a 16GB thumbdrive for backup & recovery.

This is my first upgrade, I've been looking up videos but just don't wanna mess anything up when I take the 1TB HDD out and put the SSD in there. Will I be safe making a backup of Windows 10 to the 16GB thumbdrive, then proceeding to replace the HDD for a clean install of Windows?

"No bootable device found."

How can i recover my harddisk and all the files?
 

A:Dell 5558 internal hdd failure

Check the BIOS to ensure the HDD is one of the options as a boot device, just in case it has been omitted by mistake. If the disk has failed, you can always try booting from a flash drive with a Linux distro, so you can interrogate the HDD and see if you can rescue the files. Another alternative is to remove the HDD, connect it to a working PC using something such as this, and then see if you can read the drive.

Just received my Dell Inspiron 15 5000 (5558) yesterday and I'm thinking of upgrading the Hard Drive to an SSD and wonder what problems if any I would encounter?
Any Bios Settings to change?The SSD will have a smaller capacity than the 1gb HDD it came with.
I would prefer to use the current Licenced version of Windows 8.1 that’s already installed on the Hard Drive that came with the laptop, I know there's cloning software out there but would prefer a clean install. I've made the Dell recovery media using a USB stick would this be all I need to reinstall Windows 8.1 on the SSD?

Thanks..

A:Dell Inspiron 15 5000 (5558) SSD upgrade

Hi,
If you have already created a recovery media onto a USB key, That should take care of the licensing issue with 8.1 as the product key is injected into the motherboard, not the hard drive.
Please disable "Secure boot" and ensure the USB boot is enabled in BIOS before booting from the USB key to reinstall Windows.
Thank you

Does the system correctly identify the AC adapter or does it show unknown?  F2 at powerup to check.
If the adapter IS recognized, replace the battery.
If the adapter IS NOT recognized, and is a non- Dell adapter, replace it with a Dell adapter.  If it's a Dell adapter and it's not recognized, replace it with a new Dell adapter first.  If that doesn't solve the problem, replace the DC jack in the system:

If that doesn't solve the issue, replace the mainboard.

I've already updated the bios, yet the processor fan is still not working. I've run a diagnostic previously and the processor fan speed is 0 rpm. Also the processor thermistor says its 106 degrees. What should I do?

First thing to try would be replacing the fan.  If you need help choosing the correct part we'll need to know whether the system as integrated or hybrid video.
