Dell Inspiron 3521 :: Laptop Not Switching On?

Sep 23, 2014

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.

Dell Inspiron 15 3521 :: Random Blue Screens On Laptop?

Jan 20, 2015

I'm using a Dell laptop, I bought it like 9 months ago so anyway, I get these random blue screens sometimes twice in the same day, sometimes I get a blue screen after 6 days or so. I'm not sure what is doing this because I tried a memory test and hard drive one and everything was ok, I tried updating a couple of my drivers and I still got it. I think it's because my graphic card's driver is not supporting my OS(I'll put my specs down below) :
CPU: Core i3-3217U 1.80GHz

GFX: Intel HD Graphics 4000 Mobile
OS : Windows 7 64 bites
My laptop model : Dell Inspiron 15 3521

The blue screen(I got this one Bad_Pool_Header when I tried starting my PC up in the morning, it happened yesterday and today, they are probably random) [URL] .....

Dell Inspiron 15 3521 :: Battery Failure - Laptop Plugged In All The Time

Nov 28, 2014

I have a Inspiron 15 (3521, Late 2012) and my battery has failed 7 days after the warranty was up-Murphy's Law.

I keep my laptop plugged in all the time  and therefore do not run it off the battery.

I don't see how the battery could fail, when I don't run (use it) the computer from it, especially after only 1 years usage?

Dell Inspiron 15R N5110 :: Not Switching On

Apr 10, 2013

when I tried to play any sound (details at bottom ). Anyway, I went onto the dell website to get a driver to see if it would fix it. I had to fond this service key thing, and then it told me I needed to get these three things. They were a couple of number with a letter or two in there, meant nothing to me. So I installed one, and it came up with this grid, and the boxes were getting filled in, and then some of the, were red in the middle. My laptop was reeeaaally loud at this point. But then, the power cable went out, and I've had this problem where the laptop loses connection to battery, and it went. So then, my laptop went off. And now when I tried to switch it back on, what happens is the power button lights up, three buttons on the right light up momentarily. But the screen stays black. So then the only things indicating it's 'on' is the power button, and the three lights on the bottom of the laptop, which I have no idea of purpose. Also, my laptop is very very quiet at this point. Anyway, yeah, I've taken battery out, charger out, both out, left both out, put both in, that hasn't solved it. 

I had been messing around with my playback devices (enabling/disabling) because I had tried using Skype. Originally, I had a problem where my skype calls were coming through my headphones (plugged into the headphone jack), but any other noise, coming through my laptop speakers. I sorted this by disabling my "communications headphones". And then now, I had a problem where I was in a skype call, when everything else stopped producing sound, bar the skype call. So I tried reopening my browser, but nothing, checked iTunes, and the music wasn't playing. So I thought it may have been the skype call. It wasn't, as I ended it, and still no noise was coming through. Then after a few minutes, there was a just this background noise coming through my headphones, like a fan. I noticed that it was coming out of my headphones when plugged in, but also my speakers when unplugged. Also, when I muted sound, the noise stopped, so I thought that may hint at where this problem may occur.

Dell Inspiron 3537 :: Switching To GPT - Windows 8.1

Nov 27, 2014

When I bought my Inspiron 3537 it came with Ubuntu, for business reasons I needed Windows, so I removed Ubuntu and installed Windows 8.1.

Now, I'm considering switching MBR to GPT, I'm 99% sure that my pc supports UEFI and that it will work fine. In order to do that I must clean my whole hdd, that's not really problem because I have backup. What bothers me is this.

There were few extra partitions on my HDD, 350 (empty) partition with no label (it's not windows system reserved) , 3GB partition with label OS. They were put there by Dell. 

Now, considering that I have to Clean my hard disk using Diskpart, and this partitions will be removed, will I lose something? Some BIOS functionality or something like that? Is it safe to just wipe them out?

Dell Inspiron 15 3521 :: Not Registering AC Adapter

Jan 18, 2015

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.

Dell Inspiron 3521 :: Apps Are Not Opening And Closing

Jan 10, 2015

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.

Dell Inspiron 3521 :: Slow Response Of Applications

Jan 4, 2015

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?

Dell Inspiron 3521 :: BIOS Password Lockout

Jan 19, 2015

I have a friend whose father owned an Inspiron 15 - 3521 and died several months ago. Another friend of his tried to unlock the user password and somehow ended up screwing it up more, so now it boots asking for a BIOS password that no one has access too. He doesn't have the receipt for the computer, because his dead father was the owner but he does have the box. Its warranty is expired as well, but I was wondering if having the box was enough for Dell to generate a BIOS bypass or what other options are available.

I recently purchased a stock-standard Inspiron 3521 Touch running windows 8.

The touchscreen worked for the first few days but has subsequently stopped working which I suspect is due to windows/other software updates.

The system is not showing/recognising any Tablet and Pen hardware/drivers.

Dell Inspiron 15 3521 :: Windows 8.1 Update Failed On New PC

Dec 6, 2013

I have a new Inspiron 15 3521.  I tried to update to Windows 8.1 several times.  It downloads to 50% and then says Installing for a few seconds and then Getting PC Ready for a few seconds then it starts downloading again.  Steps taken so far

1. I ran Windows Update and the Intel Storage Controller 7 Series Controller needed to be updated.  The update failed. 

2. I went to Dell's Driver Support site and it detected the same driver needed to be updated.  I ran the update and it installed successfully.  I restarted the PC.  I ran the Dell driver update again just to be sure and it said it needed to be update.  I tried it 3 times and every time it said success but it never updated.

3. Downloaded driver from Dell and tried to install from Device Manager.  It said the driver was up to date.

I googled this and it appears to be a common problem but no solution was stated.  Surely others are having this issue.
