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: Solved: Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Series - Wake on LAN & Wake on RTC?

Since I did not get an answer here, I went ahead and ordered the machine anyway, and took a chance. It does NOT have either feature in it.

It passed my other tests, so I'm keeping it and the next computer I get will probably have both of those features, but for this one, I guess I'll live without, since the network isn't finished to the point where I could actually use it anyway yet.

Hey all,
Before begining to explain how it got fixed it, please get to know what was wrong first. Here's the text of the original blog I posted months ago: 

Dear all,                                                             
These (MJU7NHY6) keys in my laptop dell (Inspiron 11-3000 series) keyboard stopped working this May 13. They wouldn’t function unless pressed so hard.
The onscreen keyboard is working fine. I updated the keyboards driver but it didn’t help. I’m sure that no liquid was spilled over the keyboard. Maintenance shops where seem they can’t help. Some said would give it a try but that there’s a chance it may screw up the whole. Please advise what to do. Enclosed is a snapshot of the keys in questions.
I appreciate your advice.
Best

Here's the fix: Please note that I'm not an expert in whatever has to do with laptop and my suggestion here, however crazy it sounds, shouldn't be taken for granted. So, here's how it was fixed. I was carrying my laptop while switched off with the lid closed the other day in hand while heading to my bedroom when the laptop accidentally fell to the ground (some 8-10 feet long).... Read more

I just recently bought this laptop and the audio worked just fine then. I don't know why the audio isn't working anymore. I updated my audio drivers and checked if my audio was muted. Still ends up not working. Any answers?

A:Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 Audio

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.

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!

Hi everyone,
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series laptop, and while I was using it tonight it suddenly turned off.
I know it wasn't because of overheating, because the computer was cool to the touch right after it shut off.
All I had open was Skype, and I was watching a video in Windows Media Player.
The specs: 4th-gen i7 CPU, 8gb ram, 1TB HDD
Devices plugged in: Samsung 21.5" monitor via HDMI, Logitech G430 via USB, Logitech G302 via USB, Acer keyboard via USB, Blue Snowball via USB.
The laptop was on AC power and was fully charged when this occurred.

What could've happened?

A:Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series sudden shut down?

Could have still been an overheating problem. The CPU has autosense heat protection and will shut it down and may do that even if the case is not hot to the touch.

I see a lot of USB ports being used, is this your usual setup? If you are watching a video, the USB mic did not need plugged in.

Hi all,
My Dell Inspiron 15, 3000 series, tells me the battery has failed completely and needs to be replaced. The laptop is only 2 years old and my battery use has been low. A new battery appears to be about half the price of the machine and I'm loathe to pay that for only another 2 years of use.

 Is this normal? Can I check that it is actually the battery that is failing and not something else?

A:Dell Inspiron 15, 3000 series battery fail

A normal lifespan for a lithium ion battery is 300-500 charge cycles or 18-24 months, so it's not out of the ordinary.
OEM batteries are expensive - though there are third party ones at lower cost, it may not be worth the risk to save the money -- safety can be an issue with them.

This proves that the reason in not a BACKGROUND application in Windows that remains hanging and does not allow the laptop to shut down.
The laptop cannot wake up after Sleep or Hibernate either.
I have tried every solution that you advised to all the other people in the forum that have the same issue.
1. The laptop cannot shut down in Safe Mode either.
2. It cannot shut down even after Clean Boot Mode - all non-MS services disabled and all Startups disabled.
3. I tried changing the Advanced Power Options of "Allow Hybrid Sleep" - both ON for "On AC Power" and "Running on battery" - no change.
4. I tried installing the latest video drivers for Nvidia. This did not help either.
5. Running only on battery does not change anything - still cannot shutdown.
6. Running only on AC adapter without battery - still cannot shutdown.

Remove the keyboard and palm rest (guide from dell shows you how) and you should see a small coin cell battery. Remove it for at least 10 seconds, then put it back in. Enter BIOS and make sure there isn't anything weird that was changed. It should work properly now. I have had this working in Ubuntu 12.04 for the last few days, with no problems.

First of all, when I go into my BIOS settings, there isn't even an option for Power Management or the like in order to set remote wakeup. So I don't even know where to proceed from here.

I have a Dell Inspiron N5110 with the A11 BIOS. I'm running Windows 8 64-bit.

I'd be more than happy to provide any additional details and even pictures of my BIOS screen options if my description isn't clear enough.

Thank you!

What directions? How do you know that any change is needed or possible in the BIOS?

I probably shouldn't be posting here, as I have never used WOL, but I thought it was just a matter of enabling the feature in the Properties of the adapter (in Device Manager). It does make sense that it could be an item in the BIOS; I just don't recall ever reading that anywhere.

I have read that some touch-screen laptops support backlit keyboards. However, I am not completely positive this model can do so. I have not found any info on the Internet.

Thank you.

This is not a typical BSOD crash. My Dell Inspiron's monitor intermittently doesn't wake up once power management shuts it off. The problem is monitor doesn't fully shut off. One way to know the monitor won't wake up is when the CPU is griding away, fan is on full blast, laptop heated up, monitor still has a faint white brightness but no disk activity. I have tried connecting the laptop HDMI and VGA output different monitors and TVs but the monitor/ TV doesn't recognize any input signal during this phase. Yesterday, CPU suddenly started griding away without a pause while I was working and the base plastic was so hot I couldn't place it on my lap anymore. System Idle was 95-99%; I wanted to check whether laptop will not wakeup after power management kicks and this morning I couldn't wake up the laptop and had to cold boot it

I cannot put my laptop to sleep or hibernate when this occurs, the computer will just keep griding away with fan at full blast but will never hibernate or sleep.

I've run chkdsk, defrag etc but no issues were reported. I have checked for viruses etc, nothing obvious. Any help on what I can do next and how to investigate this further would help.

Thanks in advance

I am using Dell Inspiron 13 series 5000 laptop with Windows 10 pre-installed and I have the following problem.  I have an external monitor connected via VGA cable, VGA to HDMI adapter and to HDMI port on laptop. When I put the computer to sleep, disconnect the VGA - HDMI adapter and then connect it back, it is unable to wake the computer up from sleep. The only solution is to disassemble the back cover and unplug and plug again the battery (it is quite annoying, since it is not possible to unplug the battery without disassembling the back cover). The problem persisted if I was testing it with only the adapter (without monitor VGA cable plugged into it). Therefore my question is: Is it hardware or software problem? If it is hardware, which component should be replaced? Battery, motherboard, HDMI connector or something else? Thanks in advance!

Did you try lifting the laptop lid so the operating system now appears on the laptop, then disconnect the HDMI to VGA converter from the laptop, then put the laptop to sleep?
