I have bought a new inspiron 15 3521 & after going through the community i think i have made a mistake of buying this particular model. Still trying to resolve my Bluetooth problem. I have installed dual booting Windows 7 & 8 also
I own a Inspiron 3521, and about 6 months after I bought the system my Bluetooth stopped working, I search for devices, and the only device that shows up is my LGP-769 cell phone, and none of my Bluetooth headsets or other audio devices. However after pairing I cannot establish any kind of connection with the device. My Bluetooth icon still appears in the system tray but the settings will not open, even in the Device Manager the phone reads as a normal Bluetooth device. I've tried updating the drivers, but whenever I try to install a new driver it says that the OS is not compatible, even though it is for Windows 8 64-bit, and from the Dell website. I have searched every form and looked into every possible system setting, and no one seems to be having luck finding a solution to the issue, none of my previous Dell systems have done this.
I ordered Dell Inspiron 15 3521 (with Intel Celeron 1007U) online when the website said this has optical touchscreen capabilities. But when I got it (2 days ago), the touchscreen is not working and I don't think it was installed on the laptop. Will Dell exchange the laptop for the tochscreen free of charge?
i purchased a dell Inspiron 3521 in July 2013 and i encountered this problem When i push the power button, the only thing i get is the power LED which is illuminated without blinking.... I waited for a while but it changes nothing the only way i can switch the power LED off is by removing the battery.... Holding the power button for a few seconds doesn't switch it off... Also when i plug the power adapter without battery, i can see the power adapter LED also lighting....No fan spins, no HDD light. Tried with Other new universal adapter and new battery. Not working.
Removed Battery and pressed power button for 30 seconds and tried removing static power if any.Nothing happens. Only power light is on No fan spins, no HDD light.
I bought A new Dell Inspiron 3521 Laptop and after installing windows 8 I was about to download the drivers from dell site any way I found that all drivers links are not working and it'd always popup a message saying :
The requested file could not be downloaded. Invalid File I.D. The file does not exist.
I tried to change my country but the same results coming out...
My laptop (Dell Inspiron 15 3521 model) was working fine until this week. It suddenly slowed down.
Once I turn it on, it works fine but after 30 mins - 1hr, it begins to slow down. While I type words on my keyboard, it would take a minute or so for them to appear on screen in MS Word. My browser would also slow down in loading. When I try to close programs, they would go "NOT RESPONDING" and when I try to open programs, it would take minutes for them to open up. I also tried plugging in a flash drive and the laptop took 3 minutes to recognize it.
What caused this sudden slow down? Is it because of an update? Or does my computer need repair? I've only used it for 7 months.
My sound is no longer working. At all even off of my videos stored on my laptop. Around the same time I lost my sound my laptop also stopped playing and videos from the internet (YouTube, Facebook, Etc.) I've installed all the driver as I had read. But and still nothing.
Purolator dropped off the laptop today and I was quite excited. I tried the Bluray and it's definitely worth the extra money. However, some things are going wrong.
First, the damn touchpad sucks. I want Synaptics back. But at this point all I can do is BAWW about it, so whatever. But when I try to install the drivers, the cursor flips out every time I touch the pad at all. It goes all over the screen in random directions.
Second, my bluetooth doesn't seem to be working. I installed the drivers on Windows Vista and Windows 7, but neither of them yielded results. The drivers install without a problem and then tell me to enable Bluetooth using the radio button. The radio button is already enabled, as Wi-Fi is working, but there is still no Bluetooth option in the Control Panel or anywhere else for that matter.
Third, Bluray movies seem to not work with WMP. What's the problem? If it's not supported, what program do you guys suggest I use for Bluray movies?
Fourth, no matter what I do, Catalyst Control Center just won't install. The drivers are there, but CCC just won't work at all, let alone show up in my desktop context menu.
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.

I bought my dell 3521 laptop on sep 2013 , I shut down the laptop last night now I couldn't turn on the only thing I get is power light on without blinking No fan no had to switch off I need to remove the battery no other way. I removed the battery and hold power button for 1 min to remove static power but nothing happens. Tried with new dell 65w AC adaptor but no luck only getting power light on.
Is that my battery is dead? Laptop will not turn on by only AC adaptor ? Coz even only with AC adaptor only power light on without blinking nothing else
I have inspiron 15 3521 and when ever i try to switch on, it runs for 3 sec and gets switched off back again. I tried switching on even removing battery and i face the same issue. I also tried switching on pressing function key + power button but nothing happened.
I've had a Dell Inspiron 15 3521 since May 2013; it has been updated to Windows 8.1, 4GB RAM, etc. It's been a great laptop in all honesty.
However, in the last few weeks, I've had some issues with the laptop booting up. Originally, it would turn on, but then stick with a black screen (no other sounds of the computer starting up), and then beep 7 times. Per another forum post I read, that's indicative of a Processor Failure.
In this case, I'd remove AC Power, the battery, give it about 15-20 seconds, then reconnect the charger. The laptop would turn back on, no problems. I'd end up popping the battery back in a little later, and it'd charge with no issues. This has been my fix in the meantime for the last month or so.
Now, I can't get my laptop to even register that it's connected to AC Power. It'll just stay black, and then beep 7 times in a row repeatedly. I've tried using another AC Adapter, in the case my adapter died, and no such luck.
What are my options? My laptop is no longer under warranty, though I do have my service tag.
When I start my laptop, I hear 8 beeps and nothing appears on screen. This keeps on happening until I keep it upside down for 2-3 minutes. Than after it startups normally and works fine. This happens everytime I start my laptop.
I have a Dell inspiron 15 3521 and it was built in the year 2012, and it is a Laptop. It was given to me band new in July 2014. From that very first day "the numLock key" would not come on, I called Dell and they told some things to try. To make a long story short, it still won't come when I I power up the next day Same problem, won't come. The program I have I Windows 8.1 ....
From last 2 days, I have seen that my laptop 3521 Dell doesn't switch on at all. Second thing I have observed is that, when I have my charger connected to the plug point (not connected to the laptop), I see the green light on the charger as ON, but the moment I connect it to the laptop, the light from the charger turns OFF and ultimately, my laptop doesn't charge. I mean no power supplied.
The steps I have carried over so far are -
1) I have tried checking the laptop battery by taking it out and reputing it in the laptop and trying to see if it works, same problem.
2) I have tried checking if everything is okay with the charger, but still the same problem.
I was busy replacing my laptop screen on my inspiron (second time in 4 months!) and this time the screen doesn't turn on turn on when I start it. I can hear the OS running in the background and it make all the boot sounds.
I own a Dell Inspiron 3521, and I'd been having an issue with apps not opening and closing when I do try. I went to fix this error. That's when I made a grave mistake. Somewhere along the line of me trying to fix it, I messed with something I shouldn't have and when I finished with my task, I was told to restart the computer to activate the settings. After I turned it back on it seemed normal up to the point after I saw the dell logo. It went black. At first I made the assumption that since I changed settings that it was still trying to configure them. But soon after, I saw my mouse and a little signal flash in the bottom left of my screen. So I checked around and found out that I needed to reinstall windows with disc or USB. But I don't have access to either of those.
My laptop takes ages and ages to open applications, new browser tabs and websites. Quite often websites I visit give me a "session expired" message. Sometimes an application will give me a message saying "program not responding" but if I stay patient and don't close it, after some time the application opens!
I have a Dell Inspiron 3521 Laptop. I get this message from My Dell:
Dell Notification about Antivirus Conflict: You have more than one antivirus software enabled. This can lead to conflicts that may impact performance.
I have bought and installed BitDefender Antivirus ... the conflict must be from Windows Defender. Maybe I should uninstall Windows Defender ... how do I do this?
