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.

I'm interested in buying the Dell Stylus for my Inspiron 13 5000 2x1. So, I need to know if this product works on my laptop.
Have anybody tried it?
Because I have searched on the internet but i'm still not able to find anything about the Synaptics Digitizer.
thx in advance

A:Does the "Dell Active Stylus 750-AAHC" work on the latest Inspiron 13 5000 2x1?

None of the Inspiron series support active pens, which require an active digitizer the system does not have.

Someone else posted this same exact problems.  The Dell response was to download the latest drivers.  I experienced the same problem as they did but I have more to add.
I'm trying to use the Dell Active Pen 556W.  The bluetooth connectivity works fine, Windows 10 sees it. But my touchpad does not recognize it.  When I download the drivers, as the last post suggested, it tells me "no suitable device was found on this system".  But wait, there's more.
Contacted Dell Warranty support.  They told me to return the pen and get another one.  But that's not the problem.
Took the laptop to Best Buy where we bought it.  They were stumped.  Here's the weird part that I can't figure out.  To isolate it, we took it from the Geek Squad table back to the computers for sale and matched it up with the 7579 that was on the floor.  It had a Bamboo Pen attached.  The Bamboo pen worked on their 7579...and it worked on my 7579!
But wait, there's more.  We took another Bamboo pen out of the box and paired it up.  It DIDN'T work on their laptop, and neither did it work on ours!  It was the same pen as the one that worked!  So we tried another model of the Bamboo Pen with the same non-working results.  Stumped the Geek Squad guy.
I wish we could have cut the cable on the pen that worked and brought it home.  That was his suggestion too.

A:Dell Inspiron 7579 2-in-1 Active Stylus

This model does not support an active pen (it does not have a wacom digitizer) -- you CAN use a capacitive stylus (which some of the bamboo pens are) but you cannot use an active pen.

I've been reading online and it seems that there are some active stylus pen's that are not compatible with my laptop. I'm wondering which ones are compatible?   I'll be using the pen in my classroom so I want there to be some functionalities, specifically it should have the 2 side buttons, for erasing and for highlighting. I'll also be using it to draw diagrams so I also want it to have palm rejection capabilities. 
Any suggestions?

The stylus was able to connect to the laptop via wi-fi but was unable to function with the laptop. Whenever I pressed the top button of the stylus (to open up a drawing software), the stylus would just reconnect to the laptop. I also cannot draw anything with the stylus either.

I need to know if there is a stylus I can use which looks and feels quite like a pen, I don't like the compressible rubbery feel of some stylus, they are not smooth enough.

A:Which stylus should I use with my Inspiron 15r touch laptop? Will a 'Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel' work with it?

Hi Shaurya,Welcome to Dell community.
Yes you can use stylus pen with this system.
15z has 15.6" LED-Backlit LCD Capacitive Multi-touch screen, so you can use Targus Stylus with this system which Dell recommends. For further help you can click on the below mentioned link:
The Wacom Bamboo Stylus Feel is the newest stylus from Wacom that a user in that forum said works well. The site, http://bit.ly/WSqVAQ  , says it's compatible with the Latitude 10. Technically, any of the non-battery (somehow powered wirelessly by the tablet) powered Wacom stylus should work.
Please reply me if you need any further help.

When the latest Windows 10 Update came out, the Tips showed using a stylus to write and some other creative things. This isn't a normal stylus. I have looked all over for one that is compatible with Inspiron 15-7579 2-in1, and resembles what I am seeing.  I have yet to find it.
Any ideas?Thanks! ~ TL
(I posted this over over on the Alienware club, with no replies.Think it was the wrong place to post?)

A:Inspiron 15-7579 - Active stylus?

There isn't an active stylus (the type that supports pressure sensitivity) for this system.  For that you need a screen with an active digitizer -- of which there are not many in the 15" size class.
The Inspiron 7568 had that option but sold in a higher price class.
You can use a passive capacitive stylus on the system you have -- just don't expect it to perform the way an active stylus does.

Hello, I just bought new Inspiron 7359 with Active Stylus because "SALES REP SAYS IT IS COMPATIBLE WITH ANY DELL COMPUTER WITH TOUCH SCREEN."
These screenshots are the proof of chatting with customer rep. ( Apparently, I do not have original conversation, so I chat with other reps again)

 I was really exited about active stylus because I saw this review: 

Apparently, it is not working at all.
First, I though I received the active stylus, which is dead on arrive.
So, I went to Bestbuy with this stylus. It worked fine with Venue 11 and 8. (NOT INSPIRON SERIES)
Also, my device manager does not have "HID COMPLIANT TOUCH PEN" or some digitizer drivers too.

Of course, I talked to technical support rep, and she told me that my computer is INCOMPATIBLE with the active stylus. ( I do not understand how this guy also said inspiron 13 7000 is compatiable. Link to the forum: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19614567 

Does anybody have exactly same problem with me?
How did you solve it?
Should I just talked to rep to return this?
I am very disappointed with Dell.

A:Active stylus is not working for Inspiron 13 7359?

Exactly the same problem here, watched the same review, read the same forum post and even confirmed compatibility in Dell Chat! Also spoke to Tech who says it is incompatible and advised to contact Customer Care, so I am also unresolved atm.
Really needed a decent pen for Photoshop use, so yeah, I'm a little disappointed too and would like a solution.

I am a college student and am looking for a fine tip stylus to take notes with. I find the average stylus with the rubber ball tip to be difficult to write with, as the tip is kind of bulky. I just purchased my R-15 this week and am wondering if there's an active stylus that would be compatible with the touch display.

I have purchased two HP Active Stylus Pens, the first from Best Buy and the second from HP.com.  Unfortunately I have not been able to get either to work with my HP Pavillion 360 13" Windows 10 laptop. The symptoms are as follows:  I pop the battery into the pen and move the pen towards the screen and . . .  nothing.   Nothing happens.  This pen is also supposed to have the ability to magnetically attach to the laptop screen but that doesnt happen either.  I does not show up in the Bluetooth devices as well.   I took the pen into Best Buy and had their tech support guy look at it and their diagnosis was that it was a bad pen.  All they could do was refund my money as THEY NO LONGER SELL THAT PEN!  GRRR.  So I logged on to the HP site and chatted with one of their sales reps to confirm this pen is compatible with my PC before placing another order, however I am still getting exactly the same results, which are a BIG FAT NOTHING.  The PC does not recognize it  at all.  What is even more frustrating is that I cant even call anyone beause the tech support line does not recognize the pen's product code.  I hope someone call tell me what I am doing wrong because I do long this pen and would like to use it.  Please advise

I have a Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 Touchscreen laptop. I wish to know whether a Dell Active Stylus would work with my laptop, which currently runs the latest version of Windows 10.
If YES, would I be able to effectively draw / write using this Stylus.
If NO, please suggest Styli that works best with this laptop.

A:Dell Active Stylus

No, it won't - the screen lacks a digitizer.  A generic stylus should work - non-active, but bear in mind it won't add any more functionality to the system than your finger provides.  
This isn't a digitizing screen, which is what's needed to function as a write-on surface.  For that you need to look higher in the features chain toward something like a Yoga Pro or Surface 4.

I got a DELL Inspiron 7559 in July 2017. The rear left corner is already pulling a part at the seam. It doesn't seem to be the hinge, but it does pull further a part when opening and closing the screen. 
I called DELL support. Even though the computer is only 5 months old, this problem isn't covered under warranty. 
Online, it looks like several other 7559 buyers have experienced the exact same problem. It seems unethical of DELL to have a recurring manufacturing problem and refuse to repair it.
Any suggestions on options to get the split repaired without spending $140?

Hi, I can't seem to get anything higher than 1920x1080 in the list of available resolution options when I connect my Dell U2713HM monitor to my Dell Inspiron 15 laptop. I've run this monitor at 2560x1440 on another laptop over HDMI in the past but that was with Windows 8. The Intel HD Graphics 530 Control Panel doesn't offer any resolutions above 1920x1080 for the external monitor and adding custom resolutions results in the error "the custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity". I'm using the same high speed HDMI cable that worked at 2560x1440 with this monitor on my previous laptop. I'm fully up to date on all of the drivers for the laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not sure what else to try. Could this be a Windows 10 issue? Should I try the standard Intel HD Graphics 530 drivers from the Intel website?

I also purchased HP Active Pen (the product name is actually HP Active Stylus which is Synaptics compatible. HP compatible table has a wrong picture. Check product manual for each HP Active pen). I does not work at all. I could not send my PC to HP Cust Support because this PC was for my daughter and she needed it while school was on going. I finally sent this PC to HP Customer Support about a month ago. They changed display and main board.Now I need to test this again, which means I have to re-purchase the HP Active Stylus (Synaptics one) for testing. Then I found this posting. If any of HP Active Stylus won't work with my x360 w/OLED display, then I am thinking about filing a complaint to FTC for a false advertisement.

My laptop suddenly went off and now it wont turn back on it would switch on all the lights would show and the dell logo appeared but would switch back off immediately. By constantly pressing the on off button i managed to get it to turn on for a few minutes until it suddenly did the same thing again. However now there is no logo and the lights just flick on once and back off.
Thereafter I tried to get into the BIOS diagnostic mode by pressing f12 as soon as I managed to get it to turn on. once more however it went off as it was loading this up. Now it just wont go any further than flashing all the lights once and turning back off

A:Dell Inspiron 15 7559

Unplug the system, remove the base cover and disconnect the battery, and hold the power button for 30 sec.  Try powering up again.
If you can, you're set.  If not, call Dell - it's time to have the mainboard replaced under warranty.

Like so many posters here, I am now a among the ranks of those complainants that active pen Stylus will NOT work with this model.  HP.  Is there a simple answer, a a clear declarative sentence, for this reported problem by many, many buyers? Frustrating things more is a call to tech support. 1st call:. " I can confirm no pen Stylus will work with your model.". Then, "Checking further literature, only three models of touchscreen HP computers are compatible with a stylus". Next call to tech support on a hunch no two answers will be same.  This time, "Oh, yes.  I can confirm all touchscreen models are compatible with pen sylus". Me:. Are you sure.  Second tech: "Yes, I assure you".  Me: "Can you explain why the first tech stated none are compatible then found documentation that only three were and mine was not one of them?" Answer:. "No, don't worry.  It is compatible".  Me: "When "Pen and Touch menu is accessed in control panel, only provision shosing as active is 'touch', not pen.  Does this mean drivers are needed or not activated unless stylus contacts the screen".  Answer, "Yes". Me: "Which is it".  Answer:.

I have purchased Dell Active Stylus (750-AAGN to be exact) on October 2016.
For the first for months I have used it only occasionally just for a stroke or so (more like to confirm it works)
Sometime around January 2017, I have realized that the pen is not functioning unless I remove the battery and reinsert it. It completely gave out a month later.
Replacing the battery fixed this problem... Or so I thought.
I had the same problem again and finally, the battery gave out in July with less than 20-30 hours of total use.
I put another  battery in late July and used it less than 5 hours in total till yesterday.
And now, it acts like a cursor when I bring it close to the screen but for some reason it doesn't register anything or it cannot be used to "click" on anything.
It is definitely obvious that the pen is drawing unnecessarily large amounts of power or just defective.
1) Are these pens supposed to have new batteries every 5-10 hours of use or is my unit somehow defective?
2) Is there any way to have my pen sent to Dell somewhere in Germany?
3) Is the fact that the pen randomly stops registering when not in use and works again as soon as I reattach the battery an indicator that the battery is failing? How is this pen supposed to be "reactivated"?
I sincerely doubt the manufacturers intended for the back of the pen opened every time before use.

Thanks a lot in advance

I've purchased a new Dell inspiron 7559 with an i7 6700HQ processor, 16GB ram and also with a 4k display at the dell retail outlet. There are several problems occurring with this device right now.
First thing is the Windows animations, the operating system that is provided with this device is a Windows 10 home version and the windows animations on this device ***. If the scaling of the screen is reduced to 1080p then the animations workout pretty decent and I've used other branded devices featuring a 4k screen and the animations on that devices work normally, if the problem is with the 4k display then why did they launch this device featuring a 4k screen?
The Second thing is the Touch Pad, occasionally the Touch pad doesn't respond to the input and points where ever it likes and the cursor takes a free tour all over the screen.
The Third one is the Screen Brightness, when I reduce or increase the Brightness with the function keys, after the level which I fix, the brightness automatically adjusts either by going up or down the level from the level which I've fixed.
I've contacted the Dell Tech support team, that was of no use, But how the *** even they can solve the problems which is with the mismatch of the build specs of the laptop?
The Dell Software Team should release an Update of the Windows 10 rectifying just even the animation problems with this device.

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:
(as you can see, going from 8G to 16 causes the price of a module to rise by a factor about five).

I had purchased Dell Inspiron 15 7559 laptop in Jan 1st week , 2017. After around a month, windows 10 started giving me issues related to password after the anniversary update. It would not let me enter the password and would just reset. Dell support team helped me with system restore and it worked fine for few days.But later the same problem was back and dell support team told me to reinstall windows which I did and same thing kept on repeating and I had to reinstall windows as usual. At times, the BIOS would ask em for system password followed by HDD password followed by admin password which I didnt even set. Made this to work by randomly tapping a key 4 times and then clearing passwords in bios setup.Even tried calling Microsoft and all they did was re-install windows 10. As usual same issues were coming. In the end before sending laptop for repair I started getting BSOD. After I got the laptop back from repair on March 23,2017 where they changed the motherboard and HDD same problems are coming related to password. I tried changing windows to 7 and started getting BSOD, even tried with 8.1 but same result. It even ran diagnostic tests on its own when shutdown(Nothing was connected to the laptop. Not even the power cord).Is there any way in which I can sort this out because the dell repair center has just made things worse for me? I have already lost my labs and assignments in it. I don't want to waste time on this laptop anymore.

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 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.

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.

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 bought Dell Inspiron 7559 and I am very happy with laptop. However, I noticed that there is some backlight bleed on the bottom of the screen. I dont know what is acceptable level. Is this good or defect?
Thanks for help.

In my opinion that is horrible and looks like there is some damage or the panel wasn't seated correctly.  I would warranty it if you are still under warranty.

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.
