I have some problems with a new Dell laptop (bought a few weeks ago). The model is Dell 15.6'' Inspiron 3542. I've searched on google and on other forums but i didn't found something useful for my problem.
The problem is that when i turn on the laptop, running only on battery, after starting the windows, it freezes. If i turn on the laptop, with the AC adaptor plugged in, it works perfectly. But if i remove the AC adaptor, the laptop freezes after a while. If i turn off the laptop without the AC adaptor plugged in, the screen goes black but the laptop dosen't shut down completly, it freezes. And every time it freezes, the only way to shut down the laptop is to press for 5 sec the start button. I can use the laptop on battery mode, only on "Safe Mode" option of Windows.
I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits, and i installed all the drivers from Dell support site.
I bought a DELL Inspiron 3542 4th generation recently. there is something wrong with the battery i charged it 100% i unplugged the charger after about an hour and a half the battery was 55% and suddenly it shows a message that my battery is only 7% remaining! I don't understand why that happened my laptop still has 105 days warranty.
I recently purchased Dell Inspiron 3542 (Nov14), and I'm getting a battery error when my house is a bit cold."Your battery is temporarily disabled. Please turn off your computer and try again when the unit is back to the operational temperature"...This message shows up at bios check and only option is for me to press f2 to enter bios, which doesn't give me any other option. This occurs very frequently, and I never saw such an issue with any other laptop I have owned.
To test, I removed the battery and ran the PC plugged in -- and it worked just fine. Is there a way to prevent this message from showing up and allowing me to use the laptop?
I've got a DELL Inspiron 15 3542 . with Win7 64 bitsi downloaded all drivers from this sitewhen i try to install Bluetooth driver (Network_Driver_NT9P6_WN_220.127.116.11_A00) it shows an error message "Activate Bluetooth Using Wireless Switch" . i can't find a solution ....
I want to install a program that automatically installs the drivers from the dell website. I thought that Dell Update was such program, but it doesn't work. There are drivers that need updating since I installed them on the 19.12.2014 from the dell website, but the program says "Your system is up to date", even after manual scan. What's strange is that the latest Dell Update version on the website is 1.3, but the program updates itself to 1.4.
I bought an Inspiron 15 3542 laptop and it works fine; the Power button has an LED which never lights up; also, the system LED at the right bottom (front of the laptop), does not light up all the time. It only lights up in white when I start the laptop from sleep or shutdown. Is this a design flaw or is something wrong with the laptop? I have never seen the Power button LED light up, which is annoying since the keyboard area is always dark without any lights; I have a HP Pavilion which has many blue LEDs on the surface and front of the laptop, so I find it weird not to have any lights on the Dell.
I just purchased a new Dell inspiron 3542. it came with a preinstalled Ubuntu. touch pad was working fine. I deleted Ubuntu and installed Windows 8. Now touch pad is not working and Wifi adapter is also not working. I swear its only 7 hours when i purchased this laptop. and facing these issues.
I also tried the drivers from dell website. downloaded and installed. my win8 is 64 bits.
How to resolve it. is this issue is under warranty?
i have windows 7 64bit and can't get Bluetooth to find any device have updated driver and check every thing and it's still not work, when run dell diagnostic it's say all good but can't find my phone or any other device.

Bluetooth is not at all working on my dell inspiron 15 3000 series 3542 after i installed win 8. I downloaded several Bluetooth drivers from dell, but nothing seems to work. I Have a Bluetooth icon on my task bar but when i connect device it says"no device found."I have run many tests but no luck so provide me with correct Bluetooth software and installation instructions.

unfortunately I made a mistake in my order and I bought a T440s without backlight. if there is a possibility to let to T440s officially upgrade by Lenovo to a backlighted version? or can I only buy a backlighted Keyboard and I have to install it on myself?
Just got my Inspiron 5748. Requested a backlit keyboard. Didn't get one even though i was told i had to buy the 17" in order to get the backlit keyboard. I also requested Microsoft Word which is not installed. I guess that i have to download the software from the internet which i do not have access to on a regular basis.
