I am operating a Dell Inspiron 3520 and have been having trouble with the machine powering down and becoming unresponsive with screen tilt (not closure). The computer appears to be functioning normally until I tilt the screen forward, at which time the screen goes black and all lights indicating power turn off, as if the machine has powered down. I cannot make the machine power on again for some time until I have taken the battery out, put it back, and pressed the power button several times. This problem has occurred more frequently in recent days and I currently cannot turn the machine on to troubleshoot.
My fear is a dysfunction in the sleep trigger within the screen/lid closure system.
I have a inspiron 3520 laptop. A little over a year old. Lately my screen has been going white with black lines and swirls going through it. Sometimes it will clear right up and sometimes I have to restart the computer. I have tried installing My Dell Client but it will not install.
Have Inspiron 3520 with W8 - daughter has infected it via Minecraft update. Original issue was dark screen and beeping, 8 at a time. Put on a external monitor and am going through the long process of digging out the bugs with anti-virus and malware removal programs.
Question is this - how can I stop the infernal beeping? It starts up if I insert the power cord or disconnect/connect the external monitor. Is there any way to silence it?
I fitted a new LCD panel to an Inspiron 3520. Upon boot, it showed the Dell logo, then went all white and then displayed a grid made up of RGB pixels across the screen. I checked the panel was connected properly and the tried to reboot but now the screen doesn't power up at all. The laptop also now plays 4 beeps while trying to boot. I've tried connecting an external monitor, but it also does not display anything an plays the 4 beeps.
I have a Dell Studio 1737 that is having problems shutting down. While it's running; if I tilt the screen slightly the power light will flicker on and off and the laptop shuts down completely. When I tilt the screen again, the laptop will power back on and start booting up without having to press the power button. I have all the power settings set to never and set the laptop to do nothing when I close the lid. Seems to be a short in a power cable somewhere in the screen? Running Vista 64 SP2. This laptop is a month out of warranty. Does the whole screen have to be replaced or can the power system be replaced?? Haven't opened it up yet to see how the power system is set in the bottom of the screen.
I inadvertently upgraded to Windows 8.1 which I had been trying to avoid doing and don't know how it happened as I had continually knocked back prompts to upgrade. I originally did upgrade to 8.1 last year and had such major graphics issues I eventually restored factory settings to get back to Windows 8 which solved all the issues. Now the same problems are happening i.e. breaking up of the screen with loads of horizontal lines running across it.
I downloaded all the updated drivers I could from the Dell site but the graphics driver and video driver would not work and I kept getting the message that the laptop was not compatible with the downloads. It is a Dell Inspiron 3520 and the recommended drivers just will not install. I don't want to have to go through all the hassle of restoring factory settings again. I am sure the problem is with these 2 drivers mainly the NDJN4 video driver.
I don't know what happened, but my laptop's not working.
I was using my laptop as a desktop computer (no battery) when I accidentally switched the switch off. After switching it on, I tried to turn on my laptop and the first thing I noticed was the blank screen. Then the power turned off, and then turned on again. The fan is working, but nothing else is. I don't hear or notice any processing, so I'm pretty sure nothing's working right except for the fan and the lights indicating that it's on.
I tried to reset the laptop by disconnecting it from power and then turning it back on after 30 seconds - but no luck.
Notebook used very little, so jam shocked at the dysfunction I've experience since a recent windows update. Was looped in a repair function, and I was able to restore. Now it powers on, fan runs but black screen and no keyboard function.
My acer aspire v5 - 122p went through an automatic update recently after it powered back on it never booted past the initial Acer boot screen I eventually did a hard resetbut now the screen stays completely black the fan is on the blue lights are on but nothing else. From what I have read online you can flash the bios but the file I have downloaded on the Acer website does not match any of the tutorials I have read or watched.
I bought a new Dell Inspiron 3520 in November 2012 with Windows 8. Since then, I have been trying to use the CD/DVD player but unable to do so. When I insert a disc in the drive, nothing happens. Whether it is music CD or data CD, nothing happens. Am I supposed to do anything different?
recently i purchased one dell inspiron 3520 laptop,but some of my software is not compatible with windows 8 operation system. where i can get the drivers for windows xp sp3 and i want to have dual operating system on laptop windows 8 with windows xp sp3.
I've already given hdd serial num service tag express service tag and white sticker serial under battery for motherboard.
I can't do anything why should i have to go buy a new harddrive and reinstall windows to use my laptop that's under warranty
I have 4 numbers now for dell
18004563355 and 3 others
I first called about a bios password that was given but after it was erased the bios that is now i am being presented with a hdd lock 3 times and it shuts off no error code this is not a 595b legacy system i am familiar with dell but this is more work then requesting a carrier subsidy unlock.
I have DELL 3520 with window7 64 Bits, I have installed QuickSet 64 bit drivers from Dell website.
The brightness doesn't get reduced when I press fn+F4, However, when I press this, one image appears which shows that brightness is being reduced but it get reduced only by 1 point, doesn't matter how much time I press fn+F4.
I am using Dell Inspiron 15, Model 3520. I bought laptop in January 2013 and its started giving this kind of error.
When I am using it continuously its working fine , when i go away from system(kept idle for sometime) it gets shutdown. So I need to re-login and it closes all the application which i was using before shutdown.
I already did some initial checks like scanning entire system for virus(i hardly have any data on system) and Dell online PC Check which passes all the test.
I purchased dell Inspiron 3520 with Linix OS. i formatted and installed Windows 7 home premium. downloaded and installed all driver files from dell website. no device is unidentified in the device manager. everything is fine except the blue tooth. Device manager shows bluetooth as working and i can click the bluetooth icon in system tray. but strange thing is it wont detect any Bluetooth devices. another issue i observed is that when i try to install a Dell device driver for blue tooth it will generate an error message "Activate Bluetooth Using Wireless Switch". i tried FN +F2 key but it works with wireless only. i tried PC health checkup utility . and all kind of checking. checked bios whether Bluetooth is disabled. i could not find option to enable bluetooth. tried windows update.
This laptop has win8, I am trying to load win7 on this laptop but I am not understanding how to change the boot order to boot from the cd drive, what's listed below is what I am seeing in SETUP? Boot list option [UEFI] File browser ADD boot option File browser Del boot option Secure boot [Enabled] Load legacy option rom [Disabled] Boot option priorities Boot option #1 [Windows boot manager] Boot option #2 [UEFI OS] Boot option #3 [UEFI IP4 Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller] Boot option #4 [UEFI IP6 Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller]
Also, my research is showing this is a 64 bit unit.
I have an Inspiron Windows-8 (pro) laptop, that I purchased on 3/23/13. One strange issue I've noticed, is when I'm in a Windows-8 app (i.e. Mail), I'll start to move the cursor (via the touch-pad) to perform an action (like delete), and then all of a sudden, I'm "switched" into Desktop mode. Sometimes the OS flips back and forth between the app and whatever I was on previously (usually the Desktop). Is this a
1) keyboard issue, 2) a touch-pad issue, 3) a Dell issue (defect, or driver issue), or 4) a Windows-8 issue, or 5) something I'm not aware of?
It doesn't happen all the time, but is frustrating when it does. I usually have to close the app, go back to the Windows "metro" screen, and re-launch the app.
I had bought a Dell Inspiron 3520 three weeks ago from Best Buy ( stupid) and the hard drive is no longer working. I didn't opt for the warranty (dummy me). Which hard drive I should buy to replace it.
Last month I got a Inspiron 3520 for my daughter and have had nothing but trouble with it. When I plug it in to the router I get download speeds of 35-45 mbps, when I check speed using the wireless connection they range from 11 mbps down to less than 1! It is not the drivers, the power settings, the router as I have followed all of the "fixes" suggested in other threads and run through a 2 hour session with the Dell online chat rep which ended when he had to reboot the machine and the link to return to the chat that he left on my desktop was invalid.
If I move our other HP laptop to the same location (less than 5 feet from the wireless router) that gets download speeds of 25-30 so I am sure it is not the wireless signal. Also we have iPads and smartphones that all work just fine from anywhere in the house. I have tested the Dell speed when there is no one else home and all other devices are turned off and it is terrible. I know this is not a top of the line laptop but I expect it to work at least well enough to be functional. Based on my reading of this and other sites, I am making a guess that the wireless card is faulty.
This is regarding my Dell inspiron 3520 . core i3 + 4gb ram with windows 7 home basic 64 bit . I noticed the feature Called "DESKTOP charging mode" under extended battery life options. unfortunately i am unable to select the desktop charging mode. It seems disabled. i have enabled Extended battery life and it is working well. I am getting more than 4 hrs battery backup also. i would like to enable desktop charging mode.
It has occurred to me that there's an issue with either my Dell Inspiron 3520 Laptop Computer or my Windows 8.1/Windows 8 OS. Occasionally, running the computer (sometimes when it's overheating or just when unplugging the laptop), the computer just crashes, i.e. Screen goes black, power light and HDD light stays on for a about 2 seconds before powering off. No blue screen, no warning, no updates. There's was no reason for it to go off, but it did. It's frustrating because:
1.) When I'm working/playing a game/hosting a multi-player server, the computer tends to crash in the middle of it causing my work to go to waste.
2.) I believe it will damage my laptop and cause further problems in the future
I've researched a bit about this issue before and people have said that it's due to overheating, but I have proven that this is not the case for me as I have placed my PC beside a fan where it kept a steady temperature of about 50-65 Degrees Celsius and I've still faced the issue.
