Q: new dell inspiron 15 gaming series hard disks

Hi,i found this new laptop amazing and i wanted to buy it on the dell italy ecommerce.
This laptop has a double hard disk system, hdd 1tb 5400 rpm and ssd 128 gb. I just wanted to replace the hdd 1tb because it's old and get a 512 gb ssd.I couldn't find some specs so i asked twice to che assistance chat,but they seems a bit counfused about my request.
The first one told me that the hdd and ssd are welded to the motherboard and not replaceable.
The second one told me that the 128 ssd can be upgraded to 256 but the hdd 5400 is the only compatible.
Can you please help me? i like this laptop and i want to buy it but i don't want an hard disk whith a 10 years old technology.
Thank you

I am trying to fix my friends' slow computer. I was wondering if there is a set of keys or a way to restore the data from the beginning of the computer. Basically, is there a way to do a factory or hard reset a Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Here is a link to the computer from the dell website: www.dell.com/.../pd

Hi,
I am planning to buy New Dell Inspiron 15 series 7000. I would want to replace the harddisk with SSD by next year or so. But i wanted to know if i can have SSD along with hard disk in this laptop.
I wanted both good performance along with large storage. So i was wondering if i can have two disks at once.
Thanks in advance

A:Can i have SSD along with hard disk in New Dell Inspiron 15 series 7000

mSATA and mini-PCI express have the same form factor but are electrically different.   It doesn't look like any of the newer Inspiron 7000 series models have mSATA connectors -- the older 3rd generation ones did, though.
If you want an SSD along with a hard drive, you'll need to consider  an XPS system - not an Inspiron.

While playing CS:GO, my laptop froze and won't shutdown with holding down the power button, had to open up the back panel and pull the battery connector to shut it down. This is the first time it happened, had the laptop since Feb.
Is it related to cpu temperature management? Ambient temperature in my room is kinda high lately would peak to 87 degrees C using HWMonitor from 80 normally.
Any feedback/replies to this post is pretty much appreciated! Just want to know what to avoid to keep it from happening again.

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.

A:Can I replace a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series power board with a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series power board?

The systems use different case and mainboard designs -- and may even be made by different companies.  The answer in all likelihood is no.
I don't think Apple has produced a Macbook with a power indicator -- the PC vendors are playing follow Apple.

Is there anyway i could upgrade Dell Inspiron 15 7000  to Dell Inspiron 15 7567 Gaming for extra bit of money?? i am looking to get better performance on gaming?

A:UPGRADE Dell Inspiron 15 7000 to Dell Inspiron 15 7567 Gaming??

You'd need to sell the system and buy the new one.  The "extra bit" of money will likely be more than a bit, as used computers will sell for 30-50% of what they did new -- warranty or not.

My computer is exactly one month old.  I have move it to tablet mode 5 times.  The sixth time the left hinge literally snapped and disconnected from the computer.
I have always been a Dell customer, but I will not purchase from them again.  I see many people have had this issue.
It is not because of wear and tear. It is because this model has a defective hinge and dell should honor replacements.  I am so disappointed in the craftsmanship of this computer.  Dell used to be number 1... not any more in my book.
Now I have to deal with sending it somewhere to get the hinge repaired and be without a computer for 2 weeks.  Thanks Dell for standing by your products.  NOT

Hello my laptop is bought in 2015. When I switch it on it turns on and then the first screen is dell and it dosen´t change when I put F2 or F12 then the blue ribbon comes bellow and it goes to the end and then it stops, but after that still nothing. Blue ribbon stays below and the dell logo What to do?

A:Problem With Dell inspiron 15 series 50000

Unplug the system, disconnect the battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.  Verify that the LED on the AC adapter is ON before you connect the notebook to it.  If it's not, the adapter is bad.
Remove both memory modules and the hard drive.  Reinstall them.
Try powering up with no battery. If it will, but won't with the battery installed, the battery is bad.
If it still won't power up, remove the hard drive.  If it'll power up to a BIOS screen, the drive is bad.  
If it still won't complete poweup, the mainboard is bad.

Morning all,
I'm trying to fix a friend's Dell Inspiron 11 3167 (I think that is the #) as it was filled to the brink with files and programs only leaving 500mb of the 30GB free. I cleared enough to try backing up the files which worked. I then tried to restore the laptop to factory specs which got to 81%, sat there for 10 minutes and then a message saying the operation could not be completed with the only option being to cancel.
I hit cancel and the machine restarts to the diagnosis program. Everything checks out only now it will not boot and keeps cycling through the Dell screen at the beginning.
My guess - OS is now corrupt since the program stopped at 81% telling me it couldn't complete. So now I'm stuck with a laptop that won't boot.
Is it possible to get Windows 10 back on this?
Thanks in advance!

Hello, I would be grateful for some help.
I've been researching laptops and think I have narrowed my choice to either Sony Vaio EB or Dell Inspiron 15R. The screen clarity is important to me and sometimes the Sony Vaio screens in stores I visited didn't seem too clear. Also came across some reviews of people who really had problems with Sony Vaios and/or customer service. But then, have also heard scary stories about Dell too!
I do mostly document work, some photo editing and video watching (NO GAMING), lots of internet research.
I think an i-3 or i-5 with 4GB (or possibly 6GB) RAM and 500 GB hard drive would be about right.
I may be able to get more for the money with Dell but will I be happier with Sony quality in the long run? I would like to not have to replace it in 2-3 years. Also am wondering about the extended warranties. Am thinking 2-or 3 year extended warranty?
Your advice would be appreciated! Thank you so much...

Am wondering if SONY Vaios EB series and Dell Inspiron 15R are comparable?

I am not happy with this product. I have submitted a second trouble ticket today. The first was for a hard drive issue and the second is probably a motherboard as the customer support alluded to. Less than 6 months and now twice I am going to be without my laptop for an extended period of time. The first time was a for a week. For the second issue, I will have to send my laptop into the service center and even though they said they would expedite it, it will probably take at least two weeks for just shipping back and forth. 
I was thinking of getting something similar for my daughter, but after my experience with how inconsistent the laptop has been and how fixing the current laptop I have will take awhile, I can't see buying another Dell laptop. I was thinking of starting on my Master's next year, but obviously I may have to think about purchasing a second laptop to ensure that I have a trustworthy device to use for my school work. 
Honestly, right now, I feel that with every new Facebook post that Dell has about new products, I would like to tell my story on each and every post to ensure everyone thinks twice about buying a Dell computer. Just looking through the posts in the forums, it doesn't seem like many people are getting the support that they should be getting for spending a good chunk of money on these computers. The last time I had this much trouble with a computer was with E-Machine and their service was terrible. Is Dell going the way of E-M... Read more

ianboy76,
How long ago did this start happening, was any changes made to the system just prior to when the system lost sound?
If you haven't tried already connect external speakers or a earphones and see if you get sound then, try to find out if this is a absolutely no sound issue, or simply that the integrated speakers aren't working.
Check the playback devices and make sure that the correct one is set to default, right click on the speaker icon on the taskbar and choose playback devices; Windows may show a number of different playback devices, look for Realtek High Definition Audio, is it set to default and if not what is? Right click Realtek and choose default click on the test, do you hear sound now? If not, test the other playback devices in the same way and see if you get sound back.
Do a search for Dell Audio and if listed select the Dell Audio Utility and run it. Check here to see if the speakers are muted, click the advanced tab and if nothing else seems to help choose to restore defaults.
I will be sending a friendship request but please report back here with the results.

Hi 
Recently my dell inspiron 7537 is having problems opening properly. I am not sure if it is the way I carry it in my back back (college student) but I always use a case with it and make sure to be gentle setting my backpack down, etc. I have had this computer since 2014 and never had any problems, I love it!. But recently when I try to open the laptop for use the right side makes a popping noise at the crease and the bottom right of the screen (not the touch screen portion but where it is black at the corner) is popping off. I can see the lights behind it. I am able to press on the screen to get it to pop back in place but even when it is in place and I test it by opening and closing it the same popping noise happens and the portion of the screen is raised again. 
Is this a problem I live with now? Any solutions? I bought my computer at costco but I can't remember if I had a warranty or if it even lasted this long. Any suggestions?
Also the actual computer functions just fine, no problems booting up or anything.

Hi

I have re-installed the operating system on my Inspiron 1545 a few times now with varying degrees of success.  I used the operating system disc and the drivers and utilities disc which came with the inspiron when I bought it several years ago.  My problems relate to the utilities disc. I am uncertain as to whether I need to reinstall the drivers etc which are on the disc and also as to whether I need to do this in any particular order.  I want to keep Windows 7 also,  as installing later versions seems to create problems.  Problems also arise when I access drivers and downloads on the drivers and downsloads section of the Dell site,  as those on the site are newer than my laptop and compatibility issues seem to occur because of that.  I don't want to use the inspiron for anything other than occasional internet searching etc as I have a newer laptop.

Hi.
I have got a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series Laptop and recently my screen got cracked, I purchased it in March from Dells official eBay store and I have still got warranty on the laptop till March 2017.
The laptop has a big slash on the screen and starting from the left bottom of the screen to top middle of the screen. I can still see like 30%-40% of the screen well. But the rest I have colourful lines going on on the screen.
I contacted Dell customer support and they told me that they do NOT cover such damage and I have to pay for the repair. I tried to escalate this issue to the complaint department but I have been rejected. Long story short they sent me a quote of;
$891.00 for the parts needed and,
$165.00 for the repair, which makes it the total of $1065 in Australian Dollars.
I find that ridiculously expensive and am not willing to pay for it. The total cost of the laptop was $1,119.20.
I was wondering if anyone ha had the same issue before and if they did how they ended up resolving this issue. 
Can anyone also recommend me a solution?
Any help I appreciate it.
My laptops screen is 15.6" and 1920 X 1080 Full HD

No manufacturer's warranty will cover a cracked screen - the damage is considered accidental.  Those prices are quite steep -- you might want to contact a local repair shop for a quote.  Assuming both the glass and LCD need to be replaced, in the US, the parts would run about $250-300, plus an hour's labor - a fraction of what you were quoted.

A:Dell INspiron 13 5000 series Battery not charging

Hi JSuboh,Thanks for posting.How new is your Dell Inspiron?  A battery that won't charge can be due to several factors.  If the battery is over a year old, if the power adapter is not charging, or if the motherboard has a bad charging circuit.If you have a "new" system, best thing would be to run system diagnostics by pressing F12 at startup, make a note of any errors, then give Tech Support a call.  You can contact them at 1-800-624-9896 or 1-800-288-4410, or you can initiate a chat session at: http://dell.to/2v4snVm

Hey guys,
Ive recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 7559 laptop and installed windows 7 x64.I've installed all the drivers from the Dell website that matched my model, however i still have issues with the touchpad. I'm able to right/left click but not scroll. I tried downloading the alps and synaptics drivers for touchpad and restarted the pc without any help.
Anyone experienced issues like this and found a solution?

Cheers
