Unable to Shutdown or Hibernate Inspiron 15 5558

Q: Unable to Shutdown or Hibernate Inspiron 15 5558

Win 8.1
When I try to shut down the system using Windows Shutdown , the system returns to the windows login screen. I do not use the hard power switch as it has always caused improper shutdown. 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. There are two Event 1001, which I can post details if needed. These did not occur after all the no-shutdowns, just the latest.

Preferred Solution: Unable to Shutdown or Hibernate Inspiron 15 5558

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.)

Hi,

I was bought the above laptop as a present to replace my ancient Inspiron 1525 two weeks ago and since pretty much day one it has been rebooting randomly and displaying "whea_uncorrectable_error".

Machine runs Windows 10 (supplied with) and has not been fiddled with or messed about with in any way. I have updated all recommended Dell drivers including BIOS and Windows is fully up to date. I have not overclocked or adjusted the processor.

I must admit is rather dissapointing on a brand new machine as I really hoped it would just work without any issues and I want to use it for work purposes so it really needs to be reliable.

You might be experiencing a corrupt windows update. Please type troubleshooting control panel onto the (Cortana) search box, click on "View All", and then windows updates.You can click System Maintenance as well.

Hi,

I recently bought a the 5558, roughly six or eight weeks ago; I have been very disappointed with the performance since day one. I do not use it often at the moment, and only for browsing and Office. 

I've tried all the 'tips' that I found through Google searches, plus Advanced Systemcare 8 to defrag and optimise, plus the Dell System Detect (No issues).
Programs often take a long time to load, if at all, especially Chrome. Downloads are painfully slow (e.g. 15 minutes for a 70kb .doc file) despite speedcheck showing a 4.9MBps rate. Chrome and Firefox both frequently stall and a popup offers me to 'kill' or 'wait' for the page. Also when opening file explorer, it can take fully 5 minutes to 'find' anything - even in near-empty folders. 
Any other ideas? Has anyone else had any similar issues?
The laptop did come preloaded with Windows 10 and I double checked the minimum requirements, there really shouldn't be any issues.

Thanks for any replies

A:Inspiron 15 5558 - very slow

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
This could be a hardware issue we would suggest to run complete diagnostics to check if there are any issues .
Kindly also private message the service tag of the system.

I'm trying to install a new 480GB SSD in my Inspiron 5558 (came w/ Windows 10 installed on a 1TB HD). I made a USB recovery drive, swapped the disks, and booted from the recovery drive. Diagnostics finds the new SSD and says its OK. However, when I choose the Recovery option the process stalls at 37% completed and says "Failed to apply image". I have tried this with Secure boot on and off. Dell wants $$ to send me OS media for a clean install. Any suggestions?

Hi all, 
I have been having an issue with my Inspiron 5558 for a few months now. The screen will flicker when the lid is moved, and sometimes when it's stationary. This issue occurs in BIOS. I have sent the laptop into the Dell repair depot twice now to be repaired, but it's such a terrible experience (they replaced my hard drive, put my laptop on hold, etc etc) and they haven't solved the issue so I'm going to have to take the issue into my own hands. I have seen a few posts that mention a loose connection wire - can anyone confirm this? Has anyone had similar issues? I'm getting very frustrated at this point.

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?
Thanks!

Inspiron 5558, plugged in not charging with orginal dell charger that came with the laptop and 0.48 ghz instead of 2.4. I am 100% sure that the cords are 100% fine. The wierd thing is that it sometimes charges and sometimes it does not. But when is starts charging, it will not stop until I remove charger or battery. I found someone on reddit that had the exact problem with the exact things that happens to him and the exact model. I updated the bios and all other stuff on my pc up to high performance. Sometimes it will charge in 1 hour and sometimes it  automatically charges. Sometimes it take about 2 minutes to start. Once it took up to 5 hours. And Dell of course wants that easy money by not letting people buy cheap good chargers and letting them buy there <profanity> $60 chargers.

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

I have the Inspiron 5558 laptop with  Warranty up to may 2017.  From the date of purchase I noticed that at the time of lifting the screen the hinges are not comfortable. When I reported  to customer care about the problem they simply said " it is new product after some days you can be comfortable to lift the screen" But now after 5 and half months of being used at the right side big gap is there between the hinge and and the screen. I called customer care they said its not covered  in warranty because its broken due to my negligence and i have to fix it by paying Rs-7000/- . I don't understand why dell is not willing to accept their manufacture fault as my laptop never fell down and i never misused it? I also have heard of the similar problem from my colleagues even.

I have a 6 month old Inspiron 5558 that won't close properly due to a bad hinge on the right side. Spent an hour with support, only to tell me that this is not covered under warranty, even though there is still another 6 months left under Mfg warranty. The hinge is cracked, which in turn has cracked the cover of the LCD. In order to close the laptop, we have to squeeze the hinge with the screen, and slowly close. From reading through posts, it appears that Dell has ongoing issues with hinges. I totally understand and would expect a two year old device not to be covered, but at 6 months? And a broken hinge is not covered? Anyone have any thoughts?

A:Inspiron 5558 - 6 Months Old - BROKEN HINGE

Nope. Nothing. I had many calls with support and they still insisted that it's normal wear and tear on the machine. I purchased through Costco, and they tried calling support and received the same answer. Long story short, I will never purchase a Dell device again. Ever.
