Feb 8, 2013

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.

Dell Studio 1555 :: Event 6008 - Computer Shutdown At X Time Unexpectedly

Mar 16, 2013

I have a 4 year old Dell which I have had cleaned and maintained by Dell services in order to keep temperatures and hardware in check.

However, I am constantly experiencing an "Event" according to Event viewer, or "Event 6008". What it says is "Computer shutdown at X time unexpectedly."

I have monitored temperatures, have all latest drivers for all components, yet I continually get the same crash. The computer goes completely off, no bluescreen, no error. I used "Who Crashed" in an attempt to record a dump file, but it keeps coming empty.

The error/crash occurs only during games, some more frequent than others. I have tried all possible options for those games, low to high settings/resolutions/etc, no background programs running - no difference. 

Some days, the error/crash occurs more rarely when unplugged and running on battery(which don't last more than an hour), and once I plug it in to charge it, it starts crashing in a few minutes.

It is also running Windows 7 64-bit, upgraded from the stock Vista(where the error/crash also kept occuring).

The laptop is a Dell Studio 1555(the widescreen version). I took it to one of Dell's shop for them to "fix it", tho after running all their stress tests they told me there is nothing wrong with the computer. So 7 completely different games crash the computer, but Dell's stress tests fail to identify what is wrong with it?

Dell Inspiron 7000 :: Function Keys Change In Use Unexpectedly

Nov 18, 2014

It seems as if the first time after I restart my laptop (Dell inspiron 7000 series, windows 8.1) and I attempt to use the volume/ backlight toggle/ brightness/ etc keys found on the F keys on my keyboard, I can use them pretty much freely. The problem is after I close my laptop for the first time since restarting I then have to hold the Fn button to use them. It can be very annoying at times considering you eventually get used to holding the Fn key, so after the first time using them since restarted you end up hitting F4/5/6 etc instead of changing the brightness or whatever setting you are trying to change. I was wondering if there was some type of setting where I can make these keys permanently free to use as opposed to having to hold the Fn keys after the first time the laptop is in sleep mode.

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Powers Off With Screen Tilt

Nov 17, 2014

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.

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Bluetooth Is Not Finding Any Devices

Feb 20, 2013

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.

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Laptop Has Dark Screen And Beeping?

Jan 19, 2015

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?

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Win 8 Pro App Flips Back And Forth From App To Desktop Mode

Apr 23, 2013

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.

Dell Inspiron 3520 :: Wireless Speed Makes It Unusable

Apr 9, 2013

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.

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Battery Is Marked As IDLE In BIOS

Dec 5, 2012

A few days ago, on my Inspiron 1545, my power adapter stopped working.

I started using an identical Dell adapter (exact same model PA-3E) to supply power to the laptop, power was working fine, but the battery would not charge.  The battery is at 0%.

In BIOS the adapter is recognised as the correct 90W adapter  but the battery is marked as "IDLE".

I have run Dell diagnostics and that says the battery is healthy, how can that be if it wont charge.
