Dell Inspiron 7568 cannot use SSD?

Q: Dell Inspiron 7568 cannot use SSD?

I have Dell Inspiron 7568 and about to replace the hard disk with SSD (Example: Samsung EVO 850). However, Dell online customer care told me that I can't do that because my laptop doesn't have "SSD slot" (I don't know what he called "SSD slot") . What's weird is that there's a video on YouTube about replacing Dell Inspiron 7568 hard drive with SSD using the SATA interface.
I just want to clarify this. Can my laptop use SSD using SATA interface?

Preferred Solution: Dell Inspiron 7568 cannot use SSD?

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 7568 cannot use SSD?

Yes, as long as you use a 2.5" SATA SSD - the system cannot take a card format (M.2) SSD, however -- meaning you must replace the hard drive, not add an SSD in addition to it -- which is what the technician was telling you.

I purchased the Dell Inspiron 2 in 1 touch screen a couple weeks ago and I have been having issues with it ever since. The computer works fine for several hours and then it just freezes up. The keyboard and touchscreen are both frozen, so I am forced to manually restart the computer. I have a feeling this is only occurring when there is a lapse with internet connectivity. I live in a residence hall and the wifi can be pretty intermittent. Any idea how I can prevent this from happening? Its no big deal when I am just watching netflix, but it happened today while I was working on research for my dissertation. It occurs about once a day now, so its getting to be pretty problematic. Its running on Windows 10 if that helps.  I welcome all suggestions!!

I just bought a Dell inspiron 15 7568 2 in 1 with touchscreen. The device is currently running window 10(not the latest window 10 version ) but my touchscreen worked well with the same window version for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks my touchscreen starts to fail sometimes I switch on laptop and touchscreen takes about 30 minutes to work but sometimes it works perfectly. Now my touchscreen has not been working for 1 month before that my touchscreen is clicking on the bottom left corner automatically without even touching the screen. I've checked the Driver and tried enabling and disabling but it doesn't help me to solve the problem. I have no idea what to do now . I don't think it is hardware problem but my laptop is still new or may be the factory fault? Am i the only one who is facing this problem ? Window 10 caused this problem? Could anyone guide me to solve this problem please?

Greetings
I recently purchased the Dell Inspiron 7568 FHD laptop and the Dell Active Pen PN556W.
I was informed by the website that these would work together.  I paired the pen with the laptop, downloaded the control panel and set up the buttons with my preferences.
Here is the issue, the pen and barrel buttons do not work.  I have tried replacing the batteries but it will not work.
However, I am able to pair it with my laptop, and use the top button to open certain programs.
I do not understand why this is not working, and I would imagine that if the pen wasn't working, then no part of it would work.

Could anyone help me find some answers?

Thanks.

A:Dell Inspiron 7568 and Active Pen PN556W

That Pen has two sets of batteries.  The very small button batteries are easy to miss.
Otherwise, mine will not interact with my screen (QHD) on occasion and I have to gently tap it on something near where it screws together.  When it gets within 1/2 inch of the screen it should show a marker.

A:DELL INSPIRON 7568 TOUCHSCREEN NOT WORKING

The following are needed before you can transfer the warranty:
1.  You must have upgraded (or upgrade now) the warranty to onsite service -- the basic 12 month return to depot warranty is not transferable internationally.
2.  The model must be sold in the market where you want to transfer the warranty.
Start by contacting Dell in India -- you will likely need to purchase a warranty upgrade first.  Then see here:

Hi, when using the laptop in tablet mode or tent mode the screen does not rotate accordingly. I installed the ST Microelectronics Free Fall Sensor Application but in Device Manager I only see "HID Sensor" under the Sensor category, nothing STM-related. Also, no conflicts in Device Manager and no missing devices either. I tried going to Display/Advanced Settings but the option to "Allow the Screen to Auto Rotate" is not present. Any hints? Thanks

I am trying to figure out if I have a faulty hardware or if there is a software solution to this issue.
My laptop has a 4K touchscreen and has only Intel Graphics 520. It has i7-6500U CPU, 8GB RAM and 256GB Sandisk Z400 SSD. Running Windows 10, latest updates etc.
Every time I disconnect the power cable and it switches to battery, the screen starts glitching and switches between regular screen to one with vertical green and red lines (still readable but heavily distorted). It usually stops glitching after a minute or two.
This is what I did/try so far:
- updated BIOS
- updated SSD firmware (laptop was randomly freezing for 30 seconds prior to that)
- tried 3 different Intel drivers (even manually installed latest one that refused to automatically install)
- disabled dynamic brightness settings in Power Options
- forced maximum graphics performance when on battery in Power Options
Nothing works, the screen is still glitching. At this point, I suspect perhaps there is some hardware issue with the graphics (motherboard).
Any other things to try?

Friends, My Inspiron 7568 Laptop fan will not spin, actually the fan blade spin a couple of revolutions immediately after powering on but that is all. I tried HWinfo, SpeedFan to no Joy.
I took the fan off and bench tested it with 5 volt dc and it work, I reconnected the fan to the mother board and tested the terminals at the "fan side" of the connection and 5vdc is there? The fan is clean and nothing is preventing the fan blades from spinning. This is very flabbergasting ! ! !
This is a four wire fan,  Black and Red for power, Yellow for sending the RPM signal to the motherboard and Blue for receiving the speed control signal from the motherboard which is my problem.
The fan always have power to the black and red power terminals, normally the blue terminal controls fan speed with negative five volt pulses, when my laptop is on there is a constant negative voltage at the blue terminal causing the motor to not spin but why?
In BIOS there are no option for fan control however the HWinfo & SpeedFan does show the fan information and indicate zero RPMs but the control to adjust fan speed does not work.
Do anyone have a solution to my DeLemon? Please help
I suspect that if I cut the blue wire the fan will spin at full speed when the PC is on and I will do that if I don't find the right solution.

A:Inspiron 7568 Laptop Fan Will Not Spin

Bear in mind the fan is controlled by a thermistor on the mainboard - it won't come on until a temperature setpoint is reached.  If it's not coming on at all, even when the system is hot, it's more likely it's the thermistor that's bad - not the fan.

Hi everyone, so here is the problem I am having.
I got the Dell Inspiron 7568 FHD laptop so I could use the PN556W pen with it to sketch and draw on it. The pen didn't work when I tried to use it, and before I sent the pen back I was gonna try doing anything I could.
While trying new Chipsets, Drivers, BIOS and Firmware, I installed the latest Touch Firmware (Blackwood_MLK_Wacom) and I noticed the Touch Screen stopped working. I tried different updates and disk cleans/debugging and nothing worked. It still said I had active HID drivers for it but it wouldn't work, and Dell Support App says there isn't anything wrong.
Also, I couldn't system restore due to no restore points.
When I was going through HID, I turned on Hidden Drives and I found two Hidden HID Touch Screen driver with Code 45 on them. I saw an article (can't find it now of course) that said the touch screen could have disconnected internally and I could open up the base and reconnect it.
Can anyone back this up? Does anyone have anything else I can try?

I disabled my touch screen a couple of months ago and I wanted to re-enable it again today. But when I looked at the "HID-compliant touch screen" on the Device Manager it was already enabled. So I disabled and re-enabled it again (also restarted the computer) and my touch screen still won't work. I also tried rolling back but it wouldn't let me.
It's still compatible with pen and touch (it says "Pen and touch support with 10 touch points). I've even went on Troubleshoot and did what it said to do and the touch screen still isn't working.
I checked the "Events" for the "HID-compliant touch screen" and at the beginning it says it migrated on 9/22/16, which happened to be the day I got the new Windows 10 update. I'm assuming that the reason for my touch screen not working was the windows update.

When touch is not working, Win 10 reports no touch capability and in Device Manager one USB device has an error "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed". After the restart everything is in order, until try to get it into tablet configuration.

Any suggestions before it goes to Dell Support?

A:Inspiron 7568 - Touch stops working when in tablet configuration

I am sorry to read that you are having this problem.  Is this something that has always happened since getting the notebook or something that recently started?  Has anything been changed with the system just prior to when the problem started?
If you haven't tried already please download the 0006, a00 version of the touch firmware from here.  I also suggest installing the chipset and Intel Serial I/O drivers as well.
I will likely shoot you a friend request but please reply here if you have tried the drivers that I mentioned and if it made any difference.

When my Inspiron 15 7568 is flipped around into tablet config, both touch and stylus stop working.
Is there a firmware fix?  It appears to be a problem inside the machine and not Windows.When I open the lid all the way, a number of items instantly vanish from the device manager.  -Which is smart for things like the touch pad and the keyboard, but somehow the touch screen and stylus got included in that feature.

A:Inspiron 15 7568 - Touch stops working when keyboard flipped around.

Come on!Nobody knows a thing?
-I was thinking of perhaps hardware-chopping the switch which tells the computer it's in tablet mode and just disabling the keyboard and touch pad manually when I don't need them.  That way the computer would never realize it's not in lap-top mode, (where touch still works) and I'd be able to use the machine as a tablet. But I can't find the switch!  There's no obvious board or reed switch or anything which would interact with the magnets, and none of the repair literature has anything to say about this.  So even though that solution would work, it's a bust.But it's also nonsense.  It's obviously some simple binary switch in a piece of deep code on some bit of firmware.  -I blanked everything, rolled back drivers, pulled both batteries, (main and coin) and did a BIOS reset in an effort to hunt down this deep code and hopefully reset it to something sensible by re-installing everything. (A hopelessly ridiculous approach when all that's needed is a 1 to be a 0 or whatever it is), but all I managed to do was destroy my Windows 10 installation, so I had to re-image my SSD from the original drive the Inspiron shipped with.Basically... what I need is for there to be a specific driver update which grants the user access to the lid sensor and adjust its behavior according to the user wishes.  "And golly, alls I wishes is that it works."Is there any chance of this ever happeni...

Hi,
I've created a bootable USB Drive which contains Windows 10 installation using Rufus. When I try to boot from the drive, the laptop shows me SupportAssist diagnostic screen and doing some tests. When it shows up, I press ESC to cancel the test, then the laptop turns off. But, when I try to boot to Windows on the internal hard disk, it works fine without any problem.
Please help me identify the problem.
Thanks

I found an old Dell Inspiron 530a in my house, it was stored because it didn’t work anymore, so I got in the job of restoring it. I found out the problem was the PSU, so I replaced it and it worked fine for about a week but 2 days ago, the computer froze for almost 2 hours, so I turned off the CPU. After that, the computer does not want to boot, I press the power button on the front of the PC, and it remains in an orange light, and in the inside, there is also another orange light in the Motherboard. The fans start very loudly and don’t stop until I unplug the CPU or I turn it off from the power button. I have tried these “solutions” for what I think is the problem:
 
Removing the Motherboard battery
Removing the RAM
Disconnecting the 24-pin from the motherboard
Disconnecting everything from the PSU
Switching the jumpers near the batteries
 
I don’t know what the problem might be, but I am almost sure that the PSU is not, since I bought it with a higher capacity than the original PSU and I have done the tests with a jumper in the 24-pin connector
The new PSU is a  “Coolmax V-500 Series 500W 120mm ATX Power Supply” and everything else are original Inspiron 530a parts.
Thanks for any assistance you can give me

Hello everyone,

Both the laptops Dell Inspiron 15R and Dell Inspiron 7548 came with 6 GB of RAM. I'd like to upgrade it to at least 12 GB by replacing the 2 GB dimms in both laptops with 8 GB dimms.

Was wondering whether it is safe and okay to combine different memory modules from different manufacturers.

I'm also leaving the US next week and so would prefer getting RAM that's more reliable and wouldn't mess up the laptops.

Could you guys please recommend which ones you'd get? I've bought Samsung and Crucial in the past and didn't have any issues.

Here's the existing RAM information from CPU–Z:

Inspiron 15R:

Inspiron 7548:

Based on the above information, could you please recommend the sticks that you would get, preferably from Amazon?

Dell's upgrade page for Inspiron 15R recommends this one:

Dell 8 GB Certified Replacement Memory Module for Select Dell Systems - 1600MHz LV SODIMM : Memory | Dell which is 1600 MHz.

So can I get this one for that laptop: Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8 at Amazon.com

This would match the manufacturer of the existing stick (Kingston).

Dell's upgrade page recommended the same stick for Dell Inspiron 7548 as well.

Since I wasn't able to locate Hyundai's 8GB stick, is it okay if I get Kingston or Crucial's stick:

Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8 at Amazon.com

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.

A:Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. Battery plugged in not charging. Can I use adapter from a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop ?

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 have a dell inspiron 1150 and 5160, they look very alike. Does anyone know if i can put the 3.06 mobile pentium 4 processor from my 5160 into the 1150? 

Only difference is the fan is much bigger on the 5160 and it runs very hot. The 1150 has a celeron 2.8 and the fan runs slow or not at all. 

Is there any other significant differences between these two laptops ?

A:Dell Inspiron 1150 Vs. Inspiron 5160 Processor compatibility?

While the CPU will work, it's a power hog and runs hot -- I would not try it without moving the larger fan to the 1150 (if that's possible).  The Celeron CPU is the reason why one system runs much cooler than the other -- Intel had pushed the mobile P4 further than it could go and ultimately had to redesign the chip to make it more efficient - - which led to the Core CPU line.

There's absolutly no mention about the pressure sensitivity level on Dell Inspiron 13 7373 + Dell Active Pen.
It's very important aspect when choosing touchscreen products with stylus.
Also, which pens do exactly work with Dell Inspiron 13 7373 and are they all have same pressure sensitivity level?

A:How much is the pressure sensitivity level of Dell Inspiron 13 7373 with its designated Dell Active Pen?

The system has a touchscreen - not a digitizer, so it's not going to be pressure sensitive at all.
If you want that feature, the only Dell that has it is the 13" XPS 2-in-one (XPS 9365).
