Touchpad not disabling in tablet mode- Inspiron 11 3000 series

Q: Touchpad not disabling in tablet mode- Inspiron 11 3000 series

When I fold the screen back and use the laptop in "tablet mode", the keyboard automatically get disabled but the touchpad does not. I have tried looking in the mouse and touchpad settings to no avail and it is very frustrating!

Preferred Solution: Touchpad not disabling in tablet mode- Inspiron 11 3000 series

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Touchpad not disabling in tablet mode- Inspiron 11 3000 series

I had the same problem with the Inspiron 11 3147 2-in-1 and discovered that it was because a program called Quickset was not running on start up. QuickSet is responsible for this icon in the task manager that alerts you when the keyboard is locked and unlocked. Evidently, it is also responsible for locking the trackpad when the swivel hinge exceeds 180 degrees. You can check to see if you have it by clicking the arrow on the task manager icons, clicking customize, and scrolling through the icons. There should be one there called QuickSet that says "Keyboard Unlocked."
Even if it is there, just to make sure its installed properly, go to the drivers page here:
Inspiron 3147 Drivers
Under "Applications (3 Files)," download "Dell QuickSet Application (14 MB)." Run this installer and it should ask you if you want to install, repair, or remove the program (assuming QuickSet was already installed). In this case, use the "repair" installation option. If QuickSet is not already installed, it will ask you if you just want to install.
After the installation. the QuickSet icon should now be visible in the taskbar (click on the small arrow to show all icons if necessary) and should be locking the trackpad in tablet mode.
To make sure QuickSet runs on start up, go to task manager (CTRL + SHIFT + ESC or just search for "Task Manager" in the charms bar). Hit "More details" and go to the "Startup" tab. QuickSet should be listed among the programs that you can choose to run on start up. Make sure it is enabled by clicking it and then hitting the "Enable" button on the bottom right.
UPDATE: As Pam C has mentioned, the IC2 controller that you can grab from the drivers download page appears to be important in the proper functioning of the touchpad. If you have problems with the touchpad not disabling, I'd definitely recommend installing the IC2 controller as well as the touchpad driver and QuickSet program. When I was installing all the Dell drivers after doing a clean install of Windows 8.1 (was upgrading the HDD to an SSD) on the 3147, the proper functioning of the touchpad and the appearance of the Dell touchpad options in the taskbar appeared to have coincided not just with the installation of the touchpad drivers, but also with the installation of the IC2 controller.

Just purchased a new Inspiron 15 3000 series laptop and booted it up for the first time today.  I am having difficulty figuring out the touchpad, specifically the scrolling.  It worked initially during set up, but then once I had that done, I can no longer get it to scroll - at all.  I have looked through all settings, and it seems like everything is right.  The drivers are up to date as well.
What can I do?

Hey! I've got a Dell Inspiron 3000 series which just recovered from some boot problems--I had to reinstall a Windows 10 image from the Microsoft website; was having problems downloading the Dell factory image.
One thing is still bugging me; I'm convinced that before the troubles, I could tap with two fingers on the mouse touchpad to send a right click. I've grown very used to this and can't figure out how to get it back. I downloaded and installed the touchpad drivers listed for my service tag, and the touchpad is working just fine for basic operations, but I don't have any control panel options to customize the touchpad beyond what a generic mouse could do. Is there any way to get this option back? Thank you very much.

Will this series work without a battery plugged in? One of the options to reset the Bios is to remove the battery, plug in the AC while holding down the Control Escape Keys. Without the battery the laptop never turns on.

Can anyone advise?
Thank you 

A:Inspiron 15 3000 Series

Unless something other than the battery is faulty, yes - the system will run on AC only.
To reset the BIOS to defaults, simply disconnect the power and battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.

Hi Guys. UK based owner from yesterday. I have the above laptop and this being the first I've owned (always had PC's) I hope you won't mind me throwing questions out there. The model (D2XH6) I have was advertised with the specs of 2GB RAM and 32GB eMMC, 11.6" screen.
I began the quick start and went through the booklet procedure. No problems; prompted to register with Dell etc and let the machine do the rest. Teething problems with the finger slide mouse thing but found out where to press eventually. I checked the drive as I was curious about the storage. It shows that I have 10.8gb free of 28.0gb. I had expected to have a reduced storage as I know there are programmes pre-installed but, all the way down from an advertised 32gb to 10.8gb seems a bit harsh. Am I reading this correctly?
2. As with my Dell desktop PC I had expected to be able to put my most visited and favourite sites on the desktop. Thought I could do this by click, hold and slide, as I do with my 7" screen Tesco Hudl.
Can't get any of the website icons ie. BBC news, local sport club, Orange email, Yahoo, Spotify etc. to appear on the laptop desktop.
also missing dropdown boxes when I want to highlight to cut and paste.
Not deeply techie questions as I'm not deeply techie so nice simple answers please. Here's hoping.

This may be a dumb question but I'll ask it anyway.  I love my 3000 3157 win the pentium quad core but I notice there is the same machine out with the faster i5 and/or i7.  As you know the cpu is not socketed on this motherboard so I am wondering if the faster i5 + motherboards keep the same general design so that it may be possible to upgrade the motherboard in this laptop at some point?  To mean anyhow upgrading to a motherboard with a faster non-socketed cpu would be more cost effective than a new machine.  The only thing that really bothers me at this moment is the lack of good stylus support and a second minicard slot for cellular network would be very desireable as well.


This isn't a practical upgrade -- there's no guarantee the higher-end models are even built by the same manufacturer, and while they make look similar externally, retrofitting a mainboard from a higher-end 7000 series into a 3000-series may not even be possible.  By the time you pay for a board/CPU AND replace the display assembly (it's the display that differentiates a true tablet notebook from one that just has a touchscreen like the 3000 series), you're likely to spend over $700 just in parts -- and wind up with a Frankenstein system that may or may not work properly.
There are true tablet systems in the 11-13" range -- these generally run at or over $1,000 new -- you just won't find those features on a $350 system such as your 3000 series, nor is it practical to upgrade the internal parts.

My laptop keeps shutting down after about 1-2 minutes of me trying to do anything on it. A few days ago an 'activate windows'  screen pops up. However, when I click it, it will not let me update or install. Today, it just keeps shutting down. I have not put in new hardware.
When the computer shut down this last time, it said installing updates. After about an hour of installing, the computer had to restart... When it did, I'm now getting a message saying, 'we couldn't complete the updates, undoing changes.'  Is this the end of life for my laptop I just got 2 years ago, new? I'm usually good with computers and I just can't figure this last one out.
Thanks for any help.

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!

I purchased an Inspiron 11 3147 with what appears to have a non K-Slot security slot. However I have been unable to find out what kind of slot it is. Along with the laptop I bought a Kensington security cable (Dell part number A5883764). The bar on the cable is too wide to fit into the slot on the notebook. The cable fits fine into my other devices with a k-slot. The only explanation I can come up with is that Dell just didn't make the slot big enough, which I also find hard to believe.
I opened a case with Dell, but the support tech was not able to find a compatible security cable and advised that I contact Kensington.
Attached is a picture showing the slot and cable.
Has anyone else had similar problems?

A:Inspiron 11 3000 series Security Slot

I recently received my Dell Inspiron 13 7000 and I had the same problem with my Kensington combination lock.
Researching information in the web, it looks like Dell changed the security slot to a shorter one (Noble security Wedge) for some Tablets, Ultrabooks (including Dell XPS 12) and Inspiron 14 (7437) - 7000. There is not information for Dell Inspiron 11 3000 or 13 7000 series but as I can see in some pictures the size of the slot is the same that the Inspiron 14 7000.
The new slot is using Noble security Wedge (Manufacturer Part# : TZ08 | Dell Part# : A6451164) and the link to buy it in Dell store this special security cable is:
I will buy this cable hoping it fits my Dell 13 7000.

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

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 community and DELL
I recently bought a Inspiron 15 3000 Series (Intel) - 3567.
Excellent choice I have to say, I am swapping my old Mac Book with this DELL Laptop.
I have the following recommendation for improvement.
The touch pad is not in the proper position, as it is on the left side of the laptop and this creates a problem on the alignment of the fingers with the limits of the left and right parts of the touch pad. This creates also an issue with the right arm as it needs to be extended to  the left side to do the work.
I am looking forward for your feedback and improvement in the future.
Thanks a lot

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.

We bought the Inspiron 11 3000 series 2-in-1 with the Intel pentium processor and Windows 10 back in August 2015. We've recently been having problems with the audio, it goes from quiet to loud and then loud to quiet without touching the volume. It almost sounds like it's skipping, but the volume just goes so low you can barely hear it, then goes so loud you almost have to turn it down.
When the laptop is plugged in the problem seems to vanish and the volume is constant.

Does anyone know what might be the problem? Software, hardware? I appreciate any replies.

Please what should I do?

If you're not happy, you can return the system for replacement within 21 days of shipment.
Remember - this is a very low-end system -- basically a glorified tablet.  It's not capable of high performance in any sense of that term.
