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.)

My 3552 has significant performance problems.

When the system is plugged in, it says "AC power wattage and type cannot be determined. Battery may not charge. System will adjust the performance to match the power available. Please connect a Dell 45W AC adapter or greater for the best system performance
Then it will move to a black screen.
I unplug and plug back in again and I get the homescreen.
After 15 minutes plus of booting back up, system performance will be extremely slow. Hard to type or call up any application

As a separate symptom, when I power up with the battery in, a message displays:
When I have the battery in, I get a message, "Your battery is temporarily disabled. Please turn off computer and try again when the unit back to operational temperature."

A:Inspiron 15 3552

A double failure of the battery and AC adapter is statistically improbable -- however, the most likely suspect is also the most expensive one to replace -- the mainboard.  You might try bringing the system to a repair shop (or even Best Buy) to see if another Dell adapter solves at least that part of the issue.  If it doesn't, it's likely a bad mainboard.

Hi,
I have bought for my wife a new Inspiron 15 3552. I want to swap the standard drive with a SDD which I have. Normally you can just open the back and replace the drive. This Dell has however not a piece of plastic that covers let's say half of the back, there is just one piece of plastic covering the whole back.
When I download the service manual which my service tag points to, I get a manual where I can see that you can remove the lower plastic part and see drive and memory. As I already mentioned this model has just not this piece of plastic you can remove. It seems you must somehow remove the whole back.
Is there a service manual which describes this (newer?) model?

Thanks
JH

Looks like all fourteen  screws around the perimeter of the base have to come out  in order to remove the base cover.  Recent systems I've seen have different-length screws in different places, so be sure you label the screws as you remove them.

I have the same problem as given in the following post.

As per the above post my laptop is concluded to be in an 'ambiguous' condition. LOL,
Exactly 4 days before my warranty period could end, I got this error in my PC. because of my exams I could not call dell support immediately. This problem is one of the unique one that I have ever discovered online. One fine day I started my laptop to watch a movie and found that there is a cross mark near the sound notification showing that no sound devices are detected. I tried with the earphone but even that did not respond. I was pretty much confused what to do. Is that what the dell gives us as my fate- a problem which does not has any solution and I have to roam around everywhere to fix this up. I still don't recognize what mistake have I done from my side that I am suffering this. 
As per the dell customer care's  suggestion I have tried installing the latest bios update,followed by all the system updates once again. But the sound/audiojack/recording device still are not detected. I will give you a brief of all what has already been tested.
1. The ePSA Pre-boot test has run and there were no problems detected.2. In the above test quick audio check was performed and it sounded those 8 beeps in different directions properly, proving there's no fault in hardware.3.

I have just received my new Inspiron 3000 3552. It has literally no sound. With headphones, all it gives is a fuzzy feedback. I have updated the drivers from the Dell website and it has had no effect. Any suggestion on what it might be? I don't particularly want to send it back to Dell and wait for a replacement.

A:No audio on my new Inspiron 3000 3552

samboc I don't particularly want to send it back to Dell and wait for a replacement.
Hello. I know what you mean. The difficulty is that it is either a hardware or a software issue. If it is a hardware issue you will eventually have to let Dell fix it unless you don't mind not having audio. You can send it back any time before the warranty expires. But if it is a software issue, the warranty will not cover it, so you can't wait longer than the brief return period before returning it.
I would contact tech support and see what they have to say. In the meantime you could run some tests.
First, switch between the Realtek audio driver (that was pre-installed on the laptop) and the Windows native audio driver.
1. Open the Device Manager (find it in the Control Panel, or type devmgmt.msc into the search box).2. Expand the "Sound, video & game controllers" and right click on "Realtek High Definition Audio".3. Select to "Update Driver Software".4. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software".5. Click "Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer".6. Put a check in the box "Show compatible hardware" if not already checked.7. In the list of devices, click "High Definition Audio" (the native driver).8. Click "Next".9. On the Update Driver Warning box, click "Yes" (install the driver). 10. Restart the laptop if prompted. If not prompted, then no need to restart.[To get back... Read more

One week ago, I purchased a new Dell Inspiron 3552 with Windows 10. It worked well for the first day. The next morning, however, I turned it on (it had been shut down), and the screen crashed after a minute or two. By "crash" I mean that it visibly glitched for a split second, then froze completely (but with seemingly no effect on other functions). I shut it down and turned it back on; the same thing happened a minute later. After a couple more restarts, I got it working fine until the next restart.
For the next few days, the same issue occurred whenever it shut down or restarted, and again corrected itself (seemingly) after several manual restarts. Anytime from 10 seconds to five minutes after startup (with the exception of one time when it made it to fifteen to twenty minutes), the screen would freeze. If it worked, it worked, and if it didn't, it didn't.
Two days ago, however, the same series of crashes began occurring after the computer had sat idle for too long (i.e., overnight). The number of restarts required to get it working again has also slowly increased. The best thing for it now, it seems, is to get it working and use it at least every couple hours.
So on to the point: Is there anything I can do about this, is this a consequence of my own misuse, or is this an issue that would require a professional to correct?

Two weeks ago I bought a Dell Inspiron 3552 (Service Tag<ADMIN NOTE: Service tag removed per privacy policy>) with Ubuntu 14.04 SP1. It was a gift for my mother. She was not comfortable with using Ubuntu so I installed Windows 7 Professional (x64). The problems started immediately. Network controllers drivers were missing, universal serial bus (usb) controller were missing. I tried to install all drivers recommended by Dell Product Support but they there not right for me. For example: wireless card is DW 1801 Card 802.11gbn + BT 4.0, yet the Dell Support suggests drivers for 1707 which fails to install. I found the drivers for 1801 and was able to install them, but so far these things are not working on the laptop:

Hello,
Here is a link to the driver download page for the Inspiron 3552.  it defaulted to Windows 7 64-bit for me but make sure it does the same for you.   Here is a link to the Intel Chipset Driver that goes with the Inspiron 3552 and Windows.  I think that is the driver most likely causing the problems you're seeing.  
Here is a link showing which drivers to install and in which order.  Check that article out and see if it helps. Not sure why the support pages / utilities are suggesting the wrong drivers but you may want to simply install them manually, in the order that article recommends.
For the Dell Webcam Central software, because it's licensed you actually have to log into your Dell.com account to access / download it.  Here is a support article on the Dell Webcam Central software application that explains the entire process.

So, just under a year ago I had bought a Dell Inspiron 15-3552 laptop and it has mostly been a reliable and durable computer. However, I've had an issue with the charger (or charger jack) twice now. The first time was pretty straightforward. It was an issue with the jack (had to plug the charger in at a certain position, computer lagged with it in, "plugged in, not charging", etc.) and I got it repaired relatively quickly. But this time around, I had an identical problem (except now the charger has stopped working entirely) but the place that I usually go to for this kinda stuff was persistent about this being a charger issue.So like anyone would, I went to best buy and bought a charger. Despite the fact that the moron said that it would work with my computer, it didn't (and the dude didn't even allow me to return it). After that whole thing, I decided that I'd just look on the dell website for a compatible charger. However, as shown by this ( image.prntscr.com/image/2ab2913161c0448b9d186f2a33b61243.png ), there was no option for an Inspiron 15 3552, leaving me very confused.TLDR, I need two answers.1) Is this an issue with the charger itself, or the charger jack?2) If it's the former, is there any way I can get a list of chargers compatible with this computer?

My laptop is experiencing 2 issues:
1. The battery is not charging, I've diagnosed this with help from Dell support, that the AC cable that plugs directly into the port is damaged and a replacement has been ordered, i list the issue in the event that it holds relevance or possible to cause to the second issue.
2. The battery is shown as disconnected, strange as i can have my laptop on as long as it has the charger plugged into it feeding at power, although it still will not charge. The Battery indicator light on the external bottom left part of the laptop, left from the touch pad, blinks orange then white, shuts off, and then repeats the cycle. Also a notification window pops up on screen stating: " Your battery is temporarily disabled. Please turn off your computer and try again when the unit is back to operational temperature, although the laptop is not hot, only mildly warm, seemingly standard operating temperature.

Is your monitor LCD or LED?
I think you have run-of-the-mill dead or stuck pixels. Usually is a monitor problem, I heard some Government thing called the "Dead Pixel Policy" but it only applies to brand new monitors or monitors that are still under warranty with dead pixels. There are some sites that host software/programs to diagnose dead pixels by putting different colored slides on the screen, like this program here:
InjuredPixels 2.1 Download - Freeware Files.com - Utilities Category

There are also programs to attempt the fix of stuck pixels. If it's new monitor or still under warranty with dead pixels than you will get a new replacement thanks to the Dead Pixel Policy.

When I drag a window over the pixel its fine...

So what is it?

(I know a screenshot would not capture a dead pixel) Thats why its odd!

I am using HP 15 Notebook PC. It worked fine for many months but then I saw a dead pixel on my top-right side of display. It is increasing day by day. Please help me to remove it.

Hello Peeps,    I just received T520 package today and my excitement suddenly turned to grief when I saw a bright glowing red dot on my screen. OMG... a dead pixel right out of the box! Did I just drop my hard earned grand that I have been saving for months on something that would bug me for the rest of the products life?    I quickly searched Lenovo's dead pixel policy and almost fainted when I found out the unit has to have at least 3 dead pixels to be considered for replacement noooooooo...wahhhh....boohohoho..sob       Why did they ship out a unit with dead pixel??? I'm pretty sure it was NOT missed by QA because it glows like a laser beam in the dark and a dead pixel would not develop while in transit!           I'm going to contact Lenovo post sales tomorrow and really hoping something can be done. I know some of you will consider this as another guy who got a dead pixel rant, but man, when someone spend this amount of cash, and I'm not rich, I would at least expect to receive a non-defective product. Oh Lordy, I should have trusted my instinct and buy something of this value in a brick and mortar store. Hoping for the best but this night would not be a pleasant one. Sigh,Jason

I've got what looks like a dead pixel. But when I run my finger over it, or run my fingernail over it, I can definitely feel something there... Yet I have tried to scratch at it with my finger nail but it won't come off... What is going on? I've got a brightview screen... Could it be an indentation or something like that? What should I do..?

A:Ideapad 310 - Dead pixel

Hi kareem_alaa,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums,
 
As each OEM has acceptable pixel standards, running pixel test would help.
 
You can review the Lenovo Pixel policy to check if it qualifies.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

I just bought the new Sony Vaio Z series.

After 3 days it has a pixel issue:

On a white background, the pixel is red
On a lighter blue background, the pixel is black
On a green background, the pixel is black
On a red, dark blue or black background, the pixel seems normal (the right color and blends in with the rest as it should)

Is this a dead or stuck pixel?

A:LCD Dead or Stuck Pixel?

Stuck.

If it were dead, it would be black permanently.
