Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 :: Webcam Does Not Work Properly With Windows 8

Mar 28, 2013

I got Inspiron 15R 5520 with Windows 8 and after I installed this OS my webcam doesn't work properly anymore.Well, actually it's work but sometimes.  But almost all the time Skype telling me that I should close all the programs that may use the webcam, but I haven't any other apps that uses webcam, Is there some additional drivers or application I should install?  BTW it worked properly on Windows 7. And it IS working on Ubuntu so I presume that's a software issue.

Dell Inspiron 15R-5520 :: Cannot Boot Windows 7 Install DVD In UEFI Mode

Oct 22, 2012

I received my Dell Inspiron 15R - 5520 laptop and am attempting to set it up to perform a UEFI boot to a Windows 7 (64 bit) installation.  I am using bios version A11 which is the latest available.

If I use legacy, I am able to boot fine to the Installation DVD and install/use the system.   If I use UEFI (non-secure boot),  it will freeze during the boot process for a long period of time.  I do not ever get to the GUI to attempt installation. I have tried clearing the disk partitions using diskpart -> clean to ensure it is not due to having GPT vs MBR and have also tried changing the SATA adapter to ATA vs AHCI.

Alternately,  I am able to boot to,  and install Windows 8 RTM in UEFI mode.  

Before I get a lot of responses of "Don't use UEFI",  the reason I purchased this laptop was for the purpose of dual booting between windows 8 and windows 7 for development purposes,  and require the use of secureboot to properly test the software I am developing.   If this laptop is not able to run Windows 7 in UEFI mode,  I will need to return it and select an alternate vendor.

Dell :: Will Upgrading My Inspiron 1520 From Vista To Windows 7 Void My Warranty?

Mar 10, 2010

Just as the title states. Dell has not given me a straight answer. When I asked in their support they said and I quote.

"We do offer upgrade packages, for windows 7 if you would like to do that it is very easy to do. I can help you with that now"

However He didn't answer my question after asking twice he gave me similar replies.

I have Hardware warranty and currently my pc is having a few hardware issues.

Would It void my warranty if I send it in with windows 7?

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Won't Turn On

Jan 11, 2015

A few days ago I was using my laptop when the notification that I had to plug in the charger or my computer battery would die popped up. So I plugged it in and used it for a few minutes when suddenly the screen went black and the computer just shut off while plugged in. I noticed that my charging cord had a green light when it was plugged into the wall but the light went off as soon as it connected to my laptop. I've tried letting it charge, I've tried holding down the power button, I've tried removing the battery and plugging it back in, and I've tried a newer charging cord but the computer still won't turn on. No lights come on even when it is plugged into the wall.

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: External HDD Not Detected

Feb 24, 2013

I have an Inspiron 5520, with Win 7 Home premium 64 bit and an external Western Digital HDD My passport Essential SE (3.0). The laptop is fairly new, I purchased it last June. From first day it seemed that something was wrong with the connection with the hdd. In case I was even touching the cable of the hdd it was disconnecting for example, and since yesterday it doesn't detect it at all!

The light of the hdd goes on, and I can feel it working, but I get no beep sound on my computer, I dont see the drive on device manager, and in general its nowhere!

I tried the hdd in all four USB ports and nothing. The drive has no problem on other computers (with OS Vista and Win 7). My mouse works perfectly on all four usb ports.I updated the drivers for BIOS and chipset, I run pc check up. I checked both laptop and drive with antivirus and antispyware programs. I reinstalled the driver from WD website.

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Programs Keep Minimizing?

Feb 27, 2013

Here are my computer specs:

Manufacturer: dell
Model: Ispiron 5520
Rating: 5.6
Processsor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i%-3210M CPU @ 2.50 GHz  2.50 GHz
Installed memory (RAM) 6.00 GB (5.86 usable)
System type: 64- bit operating system
Windows 7

I don't know why, but anything I have open- chrome, games, word, windows, periodicly acts as if it is minimized, except I can still see it. If I am on word, I might be typing. Then it happens, and no matter what I do nothing happens unless I click the window again. That means something else, not an application, is opening and closing in the background. The border color changes when this happens. It happens about every minute to five minutes. I think it might be McAfee, but I'm not sure- I can't uninstall it anyways, wont work enough to uninstall or let me delete the files. I did the whole dell scan thing from their website, everything twas fine it said. Sometimes, my computer also fades black and back on, again and again and again- unless I restart it.

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Boot From USB Device?

Oct 1, 2012

I got a new Inspiron 15R 5520. The problem is I can't boot the laptop from a USB stick like I did on N5040(My 2 years old laptop), and there is no option to do this. First, I hit 'F2' to enter the BIOS setup page, there are only 3 options under the boot device: Hard Drive, CD/DVD, Network. I restart the computer and hit 'F12' to select boot device, still no USB.

Does Dell freeze the function to boot from USB device?

Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 :: Battery Not Charging?

Nov 29, 2012

I have had a Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 since late august now. Not long ago an error message appeared saying my charger wasn't working. I knew that my battery was messed up. I went to a best buy and I was told that I had to buy a $80 universal charger. I knew right away this was false so I left. Is there anyway I can get a replacement battery off the warranty or some other way?

Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 :: Battery Capacity At 83%

Apr 5, 2013

I've had this laptop for just over a month and the battery capacity is only at 83% (tested with Dell Support Center). A couple of days ago this was at 87%.

If this is normal for the battery to lose capacity so quickly (nearly 20% in just over a month seems a lot to me..) or should I consider asking Dell for a replacement?

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Datasafe Local Backup 9.4.67

Mar 2, 2013

I've just got a new Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 5520 latop.  I'm trying to create a set of system recovery DVDs for it.  I used the Datasafe Local Backup with my Verbatim DVD+R dvds, but it just spat these straight out and said insert writable DVD.  I thought it could be a problem with the DVDs (they have RW logo on them) so I got some DVD-Rs which don't.  However, Datasafe still spat them out.  So I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling the latest version.  This accepted the DVD-Rs and wrote the first DVD, but got to 5% of verifing the disk and then crashed out, asking for a new disk.  I put a new disk in and it started again, and fell over at the same point.  Then I abandoned the process, restarted the whole thing from the beginning, and it failed at the same point again. How I can create a set of system recovery disks.

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Beeps When Started And Shuts Down?

Nov 25, 2014

My dell inspiron 5520 beeps when I turn it on. It is a series of 4 beeps, 4 beeps and 3 beeps. It shut's down when it's on the battery. When I have it on the mains power after the first three series of beeps it shuts down but 15 seconds later it reboots and continues the beeping, this time it is 4 beeps, 4 beeps, 4 beeps constantly until I turn off the mains supply.

They are short beeps, lasting  for 2 seconds for the 4 beeps. The gap between the series of beeps is also 2 seconds. Recently it has been left in a room that has no heating and it has been quite cold lately, if that has any effect on it.

Dell Inspiron 15R 5520 :: Few Specific Characters Appear Only After Typing Key Twice

Jan 6, 2013

I'm facing a very strange issue in my Inspiron 15R 5520 which I bought in August 2012. There are few characters, which appear only after typing the corresponding key on the keypad twice.

e.g. If I want to type tilde(~) character, then I have to press the key on the lest side of Numeric key 1. But, if I press it once, nothing appears on the screen. And If I press this key twice, then I get two tilde (~) characters. Same behaviour happens for four other characters. Given below is the list of characters, which do not show up by pressing key once, rather twice.


Surprisingly, when I was typing keys Shift+6 in the compose area of this forum, then the character caret (^) appeared after pressing key once. Whereas, if I try it in Notepad or Word Pad or in the address bar of Mozila FireFox, I'll have to press the key twice so that character appears twice and then delete the extra character...
