Question: Dell Inspiron 15 7567 GPU Performance limited by temperature on Battery power(GTX 1050)

So the GPU performance drops on battery power because it is limited by temperature although as you can see the temperature only reaches 62C but when i plug in the charger the temp limit is gone.How can i disable it?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Greetings! I just got my laptop recently and when I installed some games(Overwatch specifically), I would stutter like *** even if I installed the latest nvidia driver and lowering the graphics settings aswell. I did the same thing with the other games like CS:GO and Bioshock Infinite, I would still stutter even if lowered the settings down. I just feel like the laptop should be performing much better. 
Any way I could boost things up and/or utilize the laptop itself?

I'm pretty confused, there is "Dell Power Manager Service" for  Inspiron 7577: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/drivers/driversdetails?driverId=DY59W
But there is not "Dell Power Manager Service" for Inspiron 7567.

Is here real hardware difference what limits the using of "Dell Power Manager Service" for Inspiron 7567 or it's *** Apple-style marketing move?

Although the notebook seems to be powerful enough, I am having problems when it is connected to the external monitor (via HDMI, I have tried different monitors and cables):
1) When the notebook lid is closed (or the Windows Display settings is set to "External only"), Windows is very slow, all the animations are lagging. When both notebook screen and external monitor are on (set to "Duplicate"), everything is fine.
2) In games, I have a noticable FPS drop (up to 20 - 30 FPS in Witcher 3) when playing on external screen (even on "Duplicate" and "External Only" modes). I can have full FPS just when playing only on notebook screen.
any solution?

Answer:Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming (7567) + external monitor = (performance) problems

Hi mahdi1994,Thanks for posting.Apologies that your computer is not working the way you expected.  Other users with a similar issue as yours have reported success by updating the BIOS and/or disabling Turbo Boost.  You might try those to see if it resolves your issue.Here is some information you may find helpful: http://dell.to/2y6sGN3

Hello,
few weeks ago, I have bought Dell 7567 in following configuration:
CPU:  Intel Core i7 7700 HQ
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 630 + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti
HDD: 1TB 5400rpm

Although the notebook seems to be powerful enough, I am having problems when it is connected to the external monitor (via HDMI, I have tried different monitors and cables):
1) When the notebook lid is closed (or the Windows Display settings is set to "External only"), Windows is very slow, all the animations are lagging. When both notebook screen and external monitor are on (set to "Duplicate"), everything is fine.
2) In games, I have a noticable FPS drop (up to 20 - 30 FPS in Witcher 3) when playing on external screen (even on "Duplicate" and "External Only" modes). I can have full FPS just when playing only on notebook screen.
I was not able to solve this problem (probably it's some bug in drivers from Intel). I have tried more different drivers (from Dell and also stock Nvidia/Intel) but without success. Currently I am using the latest ones from Dell website. 
I would be very happy if someone could help me to solve this problem as it drives me crazy to not be able to enjoy full (gaming) performance of this laptop.

Hi all,
I recently purchased an Inspiron 15 7567 gaming laptop from Dell and have encountered a few issues.
Computer Specs:
OS: Windows 10 Home 64 Bit
CPU: Intel Core i7 7700HQ Kabylake
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB 
Memory: 8GB (1x) DDR4
Storage: 1TB Hybrid Drive
The rest can be found here
Problem:
Upon first setup there were issues installing the NVIDIA drivers where the install would fail multiple times - eventually I got the driver to install. Then I had some issues with the graphics card enabling when I would play games so I just changed the setting in the NVIDIA control panel to always use the dedicated GPU. After playing some AAA titles such as GTA V and Arma III, I am experiencing what appears to be throttling. On low or ultra settings, my FPS remains around 45-50 (sometimes a little higher before stutter) on most games which surprised me because the dedicated GPU is a 1050 Ti which has higher specs than what the games need. After playing for maybe an hour, the game starts to frequently stutter, dropping frames for a couple seconds then boosting back and so on. I have monitored the temperature of both the GPU and CPU which reach ~56 degrees Celsius and ~70 degrees Celsius respectively. I have also monitored the usage of the CPU and memory during play, the CPU not reaching full usage and the memory reaching about 90% usage. I have also monitored the GPU performance through GPU-Z and will attach the file below. I have virtually tried everything that I can thi... Read more

Hi all,
I purchased a Dell inspiron 7567 laptop in mid to late January of this year. After a couple months, I had an issue with the battery not charging. I contacted support and searched different solutions, and all of them said to remove the battery and restart the laptop, then reinstall the battery. This worked temporarily. I had the problem again not long after, but again the solution worked. Recently, however, the problem has resurfaced. I've tested every solution I can find, I've contacted support and tried their solution, and nothing has worked. When I boot up the system and look at the bios, the AC adapter is recognized and working. When I look at the battery in the Dell Power Manager, it is confirmed to be a Dell battery. The health of the battery states unknown, and I've read that this could mean that the battery itself is bad, but since this problem has occurred before saying the same thing and then later been resolved and since the system is only 6 months old, I have a difficult time believing that the battery is bad. There is a BIOS update I can download, but with the system at 0% there is no way to install it without risk to the laptop. Dell support has told me I will need to send it in for repairs and pay for any parts needed, but I require the laptop for classwork and such, and sending my laptop away for 2 weeks would only be detrimental. My question is is this a common problem with this system, and if so is there a solution I haven't found yet.... Read more

Hello, 
I just bought my laptop 2 weeks ago and it has been saying that the battery wont charge since it isn't a genuine dell battery (which it is) but it would still charge. Recently that notification has been removed and now at the bottom right it shows no battery is present. Now I'm not sure if the battery is still charging because it still works even when I am unplugged. Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:Dell Inspiron 7567 says no battery present but still works

Since this is a new model, it is covered by warranty - contact Dell to have the battery replaced under warranty.

Hey,
I have bought a dell inspiron 7567 gaming laptop about 2 months ago.. I facing few problems.. 
1. first month the laptop used to run on batter for about 5-6 hrs browsing internet and watching movies as well.. but now I hardly get 2 hours only browsing without any other tasks running in parallel..
2. The laptop heats a lot at the bottom even when I do browsing only
3. Right hinge make a kind of 'tick' sound while opening and closing.. and after I close completely, I have to press a bit at the right hinge to close completely.. (When I press it makes a small tick sound and is closed completely)
I'm worried to see so many issues within a year and that too for just 2 months.. The main problem is this laptop my aunt bought in United States but I live in India. So it is not easy to send the laptop to US for  such issues.. I hope I will get some support through this post..

Answer:Dell inspiron 7567 Gaming - Battery and Hinge problem.

You'll need to start by transferring the warranty to India -- however, this requires:
1.  Upgrading the warranty from depot repair to onsite service -- this will cost a couple of hundred dollars.
2.  That the model is sold in India -- if it's not, the warranty cannot transfer.
To transfer:

Then contact Dell India or US for repair.

Hello, I had the Power Manager from the windows store and it was working fine until today. Today, I decided to reset windows to refresh my system (there was nothing wrong with it), Now, I install the power manager and it gives me the picture attached here:

Unfortunately, when I hit no, the program closes. If i select yes, I can only view the battery's life and not the ability to set max charge or minimum charge or adaptive  charge etc. If I try to download this same program off of Dell's website (which is compatible with 7577 NOT 7567 for whatever reason) it won't let me. The easy fix is to of course find the DPM component service but I cannot find that anywhere!! So any help will be appreciated. This is a big pretty deal, as I made an account just for this reason. I find the  dell power manager very helpful and love the program, but now I am beginning to question whether Dell intentionally makes the programs only for their latest laptops and products, which is ***.

A few months ago I purchased the Dell XPS 15 9560. I have used it on a daily basis since, but I noticed performance issues. The SSD and RAM works fine, but benchmarks for the CPU and GPU are very low. I have gone through extensive testing, but can not seem to find the problem. Dell's own performance testing made the laptop max out, and found no issues, but third party testing or gaming on the laptop will not make the laptop reach its capabilities. The specs should be very high end, but do not live up to them when processing tougher tasks. For example League of Legends runs very poorly compared to the specs. It almost feels like there would be some kind of cap set to the performance, but no such things are enabled. If there is anyone that could help with this I would be very grateful. 

Answer:Dell XPS 15 9560 i7/GTX 1050 Performance issue

By what standards are you comparing?  There are desktop CPU and mobile CPUs - the latter will never perform as well as desktop CPUs, as they're optimized for lower power consumption.  That's why a lot of the high-end gaming notebooks use desktop CPUs (such as those built by Clevo and the boutique brands like Sager and Falcon Northwest that build systems using Clevo chassis).  
There's a desktop 1050, but the mobile version won't run as fast as it does either - further, in a desktop, the 1050 is the true, dedicated GPU that League of Legends recommends -- and it's not what you have in your system, which is a hybrid of an nVidia co-processor and Intel graphics (the former cannot operate without the latter in your system).
It sounds like you're looking for a high-end gaming notebook - that's not the way your system was designed to operate.  It's a slim, portable all around notebook - yes, it can do some gaming.  It will never deliver flat-out gaming performance -- it's not large enough to support the cooling requirements of a CPU and GPU running at the levels that sustained gaming requires.

Hi,
I have a recent DELL laptop:
Inspiron 7000 (Inspiron 17 7778 2-in-1),
Core i7, 16 Gb RAM, 128 GB SSD + 1TB HD...
Not a lot of programs and lots of space available.
In the last few months I have had a lot of poor performance issues. I finally figured out it is related to Windows 10 Power Plan. When set to "Power Saver", the performance is awful. The CPU is maxed to 0.80 GHz. So when browsing the net or looking at my picture gallery, the computer hangs, and it becomes impossible to use. If I change the plan to high performance, the computer behaves normally - fast!
And even if I change the plan to another plan (i.e. High Perf), the next time I restart or wake-up the computer, the "Power Saver" power plan is set back... Very frustrating. And as shows the image, it is not the "bolded" option in the list. What can be changing constantly that parameter??
I contacted DELL chat support and they asked me to re-install Windows! There is probably a better way to fix this. It looks to me as a DELL Driver conflicting with Windows. Also, my mother has an older DELL laptop on Windows 10 and she experiences the same issue...
Any help would be very appreciated!
Cheers,
Jean-Daniel

I have a Dell and can say I have left it on for long periods of time, sometimes until the power is drained and it shuts down. Recently I have noticed the power slowing down as I have fully charged it multiple times. It used to max out at 2 hours but has slowly made it's way to 20 minutes. I also found myself recentlyangling the AC cord in the back to keep a steady charge. The cord became harder to connect over time as well. Before you know it my CPU was dead but my AC power cord remained green. Is there a chance my battery is dead and needs replaced or I need a better AC pwer cord Connection. Or could it be something worse?

Now, my question, is there any way to to install a 1TB HDD, keeping my 256GB SSD undisturbed. I did some research and found out that my laptop supports 2.5Inch SATA hard disks but does it only support SSD or both SSD AND HDD
Is there any free internal slot for the installation of 2.5Inch HDD/SSD ? Please anyone ?

The new Dell Inspiron 7567 is plagued with a BSOD issue when updating the Nvidia video driver.
The driver provided by Dell is stable, however does not support the latest and greatest games (BF1 is a year old and will not launch on Dells driver).
I've spoken with several owners of the new 7567 and they are all experiencing the same issue.
There has been some issue with dell keeping up to date with the latest Nvidia drivers for the discrete GPU (you can't take regular NV gpu updates from NV experience unless you want to deal with BSOD GPU fatal errors) . From what I have read this notebook employs Nvidia Optimus technology- in short it uses the Intel GPU (on CPU) for low power applications and then seamlessly hands off to the GTX when the workload becomes too much (gaming). There is no way to disable this handoff from within bios NV control panel or windows power management to use only the GTX. Using any other than the dell supplied driver will result in extreme system instability and frequent crashes. Using the dell supplied drivers your new 1050 Ti is about 15-20% lower performing than on the newer (but unstable) NV supplied drivers.
Competing manufacturers like Acer do not have this issue and Acers machines will perform significantly better than Dells due to this driver conflict. 
I urge Dell to address this issue ASAP for it will cause a very big issue for them in the near future as Acer and Lenovo flood the market with their new systems.

So I recently (it's been about 3 weeks) purchased a refurbished dell Inspiron 15 7000. Sometimes, when I put my laptop to sleep, it wakes up with this screen. That smaller box is the mouse apparently because it moves when I move my mouse. It doesn't go away, at least when I left it for 10 minutes. 
Also, another freezing problem that I have is that sometimes, my computer spontaneously freezes while I am watching a video. It may have to do with my RAM usage (I've noticed that I have at least 4-5 tabs open) but I also have 8gb ram, which has never been a problem on other computers. The screen doesn't change, and the audio stutters loudly for about 10 seconds before cutting off immediately. Nothing on the screen moves.

All parts are stock.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 with Windows XP Pro, Intel Pentium 4.

When I plug in the A/C adapter, the battery will not charge and the computer will not boot if the battery is dead. If I charge the battery in another laptop and then put it in this one it will boot up, but only on battery power and until the power goes out on the battery. I have replaced the A/C adapter twice to double check the adapter being bad/good and have had same results with all of them. I have also bought a new battery as well with the same results.

Is there an alternative to replacing the motherboard? Is there somehow I can charge the batteries without having to put them into another computer?
 

Answer:A/C Adapter will not power Dell Inspiron, but charged battery will.

Did you test the adapter ? Is there a light on it ?
try wiggling the adapter where it goes into the computer. and watch for a light on the front of the laptop, if it comes on then you'll need to replace the power jack.

Other then that I don't think there is an external battery charger you can purchase.

Hello, I currently have Dell Inspiron 7567 and I had this for 10days.
Here is the spec of Dell 7567 that I have:
-Intel Core i7 7700HQ
-Nvidia gtx 1050ti
-16gb ram
-128gb SSD and 1tb HDD
-1920*1080 IPS panel
Whenever I play any games with AC adapter plugged in, the FPS is more than 100 and it makes loud fan noise. However, the FPS drops to 30FPS and fan does not make loud noise when I unplug the AC adapter. I have changed the NVIDIA power plans in NVIDIA Control Panel. I have also altered my power options in control panel and turned off Battery Boost in GeForceExperience. Can anyone please tell me what is causing this FPS drop and loud fan noise? 

Answer:DELL INSPIRON 7567 FPS drop when unplugged

The system switches to lower power mode on battery - while you can adjust this setting in power management, it will reduce the battery runtime (and it's unlikely the battery can supply enough power to allow the system to run as fast as on AC power even if you max out the settings).
When the system is working hard, it generates heat that must be dissipated.  That causes the fan to run faster -- and be noisier as a result, just as your car's engine gets louder when revved faster.

After i completely dignosed the issue it seems to me that there are problems in BIOS, Drivers and thermal management as when I start playing a game (GTA 5, Battlefiels 1) i runs smooth for 5 minutes but after that i starts lagging and freezing. I have also run some benchmarks but results are similarly as there is the issue of cpu thermal throttling. And audio distortion is due to unstable and poor compatibility drives. In dell forms i read people saying that all this is caused due power management issues which i have also noticed as when CPU is idle is consumes around 20 watt at 50°C but when put under load it once reaches 50 watt of peak usage at 100°C but with in few seconds it thermal throttles and used only 15 watt at 80°C which is even less than idle speed which causes many problems and freezing also all with in few minutes of gaming or proper use. Many uses are facing same problems as i have read on reddit and dell community form but not all the systems are affected as the review units that some YouTube channels and Websites like Laptop Mag reviewed did not exibit such problems or otherwise the reviews are fake. I don't know why dell is not solving the issues and sending me the same problematic Laptop again for the third time.!!

I have had my Dell laptop for almost two years now. I replaced the battery before the warranty expired (1 year?). The battery was working fine, but I was starting to have to jerry-rig the angle of the power cord in the socket to charge the battery. I purchased a knock-off AC adapter replacement. I started getting error messages almost immediately when booting up that cord might not be compatible with the laptop. As it was working, I didn't worry about it. The power light start flashing in a particular pattern then, which it has been doing for months (three fast orange flashes and one long white flash). Historically, a white light has meant "charged" and an orange light has meant low power. The AC adapter became increasingly less efficient in charging the battery until it ceased to charge it at all. I purchased the Dell AC adapter recommended for the newest version of my laptop model. There was no noticeable change. (I understand from Dell that the problem may have been that I purchased a 90W adapter, compatible with newer versions of this model, but that I should have purchased a 65W adapter as my laptop is older.) I returned that adapter to Dell and then purchased a re-furbished Dell 65W AC adapter through Amazon. Again, no noticeable change. The battery is taking absolutely no charge from these cords. As I remove the power cord from the socket, the computer instantly shuts down.

When I hover over the battery icon, it says the battery is 0% charged and that ... Read more

I have a Dell E1405 Inspiron laptop with a 100% battery charge. The issue is that the computer will not function without the adapter plugged in, rendering the battery as dead-weight. In the boot menu, the battery is showing as "Idle: 100% charged". However, Battery health is telling me "This battery can no longer provide sufficient power to your system and needs to be replaced'. So, I'm wondering, is my battery bad or is my PC not synchronized with the battery?

Does anyone know what the symbol means on the S key, it looks like a FAN or propeller?
And how does it function, does it need to be combined with FN key or other key combination?

Answer:Dell Inspiron 15 7000 gaming (Intel) - 7567

RePaRaQu,Some keys on your keyboard have two symbols on them. These keys can be used to type alternate characters or to perform secondary functions. To type the alternate character, press Shift and the desired key. To perform secondary functions, press Fn and the desired NOTE: You can define the primary behavior of the function keys (F1-F12) by changing Function Key Behavior in BIOS setup program.

Hi everyone!
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 7567 gaming laptop, and today I noticed, that my laptop makes very quiet ticking sound when it is plugged in. This is strange, because the sound very similar to a HDD's head movement ticking. The only problem that there's no winchester in this laptop, only SSD-s (1 X M.2 NVMe PCI-E x4, and 1 X SATA3 2,5") working in my laptop. In this series there's no optical drive, so the only mechanical units in this laptop the 2 cooling fans. But strangely the ticking is exactly can be heard, when the fans stop. So when the fans don't spin (0 rpm) the quiet ticking sound can be heard.
The second strange thing, if I unplug the laptop from AC, the ticking slows down. After i plug in it again, the ticking continues faster...
Do somebody sensed the same? The ticking comes from under the keyboard, if I lean forward, I can hear it well. I think, that this ticking might caused by one electical unit, and I worry that my laptop will go wrong, although now there's no other problem, just the sound...

Hi!
I have bought a Dell Inspiron 15 7567, and yesterday I noticed, that my laptop makes very quiet ticking sound. The sound very similar to HDD's head movement sound, the only problem is, that in my laptop there is no HDD. I use just 2 SSD (1 X M.2 PCI-E x4 [Samsung 960 EVO], and 1 X SATA 3 2.5" [Samsung 850 EVO]). In this model there's no optical drive, so the only mechanical part of this laptop, that coud generate this sound, if it would be mechanical sound, is the fan system. but strangely the ticking sound only hearable when the fans stop spinning.
So I don't think, that the fans would create this sound, because when I can see in AIDA64 that fans speed is 0 RPM, the ticking sound exactly then hearable.
Additionaly strangely, when I unplug the laptop from AC, the ticking sound almost stops (It not stops, but the click sound becomes rare)... After I plug the AC back, the ticking continues...
Do somebody sensed the same? Is it normal? My opinion, that the sound caused by on of the electronical units bad groundings, or something. Although there's no power or other issue with my laptop now, but I don't want to wait until it gets bad...
Thanks!

Hello, I noticed recently that when my fan is at its fastest rpm and the laptop keys are pressed lightly there is a buzzing noise that can be heard. this noise goes away if the fan slows down or I press harder on the keys. Recently I also discovered that adjusting the screen physically as in moving back or forth seems to take it away as well. Any thoughts?

So i bought a Dell Inspiron 7567 last week - TN model with the 1050TI and 1 tb hdd model. I have win10 home , i installed all the drivers(nvidia, intel graphic ...). The problem is when i connect to an led display . The led display is a Samsung 27 inch S27F350 . The problem is that it's all blurry, the text, the colors are not there and i cannot change the sharpness,gamma for my screen at all it's like the driver blocked me , only the brightness of the screen , that i can change. When i put the led  on the eye saver mode i can change the contrast, the sharpness, but not the brightness of course, because it's the yellow light and yeah in the eye saver mode where the sharpness exists, it's all more clear the text, the images  . I have native settings on the screen.
I connected to a TV that's full hd 1080p, i cannot see the edges of the screen. I think the drivers are not set correctly and the problem is with in the driver of nvidia or intel graphic. If you know the solution please help ?

So a few days ago, I turn my less than 3 week old Dell Inspiron 15 7567 Gaming on, and notice that there is now what appears to be fan noise coming from just the right side of the laptop. Prior to this, the fan would only kick on when the laptop hit a certain temperature, but now there is fan noise constantly. I'm worried this is the sign of worse to come. Uninstalling Windows updates, updating the BIOS, and reinstalling windows have done nothing to help. The only other piece of hardware on that side of the laptop is the hard drive.

Hello! Recently i have played AAA games (Witcher 3, Battlefield 4, Mirror's Edge: Catalyst and other) and i saw that framerate is too low (~30fps) even on medium settings without (or low) anit-aliasing, but everything was perfect about a month ago (50-60 fps on high settings without anti-alising until this moment).Relying on similar issues and CPU-Z information, i think that it is proccessor throttling trouble.But why? Proccessor temperature isn't high enough. (50-70 degrees Celsius) The problem persists even with connected AC adapter, disabled battery boost and other "great" nvidia settings. Also it seemed to me that the cooling became quieter and it works only on the part of the full strength. (a few months ago cooling was really loud)Can the problem be related with the windows 10 update?

My laptop configuration:
OS: Windows 10 (default)
CPU: Intel Core i5 7300HQ
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 4GB
Memory: 8GB

Recently bought a model 7567 and paired it with an external monitor via HDMI. All my drivers are up to date. Ever since pairing the both, every few minutes, the laptop and external monitor both freeze for about a minute, then both screens flicker and return to normal operation. 
This only happens when I use HDMI output. If I'm using the laptop alone, it works perfectly. I should note that this only happens when browsing webpages or small tasks, and not when gaming. I have ran full system hardware diagnostics and found no problems.
Any help would be nice, as it is becoming a pain to use. Thanks!

Hi,
Been having a problem with my new laptop that's getting progressively more annoying.
Every so often Power Monitor Lite pops up a dialogue box that states that it does not recognise my battery & that 3rd party batteries could catch on fire. I should order a new Dell battery to fix this.
Originally this happened maybe once per day. Now it can be once per hour. It now also stacks, leaving multiple instances open in the background after I leave the system on with no activity.
Seeing as my laptop is pretty much fresh from box and has had no hardware changes made to it this is obviously wrong.
It is more frustrating that if I open Power manager Lite It shows Dell as the battery maker. The only thing on the info screen is that the program cannot establish "battery health"
I would normally remove this software as Windows perfectly good power management built in but I cannot find anything listed under add/remove - this seems to be a Win 10 thing as I have found advice for Win 8 saying it can be removed this way.
Any advice on how to remove this program or at least disable it's notifications?
cheers

Post Windows 10 Creators Update, there have been several issues affecting the Dell Inspiron 7567.

I've made several posts on this forum and the Nvidia forum outlining my issues:
CPU throttling while system is being stressed (Aida64: CPU+GPU stress test replicates this issue within the first 2 minutes).  See the attached video demoing the issue: 
www.youtube.com/watch
I've discovered with the assistance of Yan(MELSunny) from this forum (a user who recently purchased the i7 variant of this laptop) that the throttling is caused by the later builds of Windows 10 (creators update).  WIN10 build 14393 is confirmed to be working without these issues.
If you expect to play any video games on this "gaming" laptop, you CANNOT update your operating system.  If you enable windows update, Microsoft will pull the latest build immediately causing your system to become unstable and throttle for no reason.
I HOPE Dell reads this and works with Microsoft to address this in future Win10 builds.  If any of you are experiencing this issue, roll back your OS or reformat.

Good afternoon. So I purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 (7567) for my wife on July 13 and it was delivered on July 21st without any issues. The purpose for the laptop is more work and school since my wife is not a gamer, but I wanted to get her the best possible specs for the long term. All drivers on the laptop are from the Dell site and the laptop shipped with Windows 10 Pro. On the night I received it, my wife decided to watch some Netflix while I slept and the next morning, she sent me the attached screen shots. According to her, the screen just turned that way after having watched about 30 minutes of full screen material. She also stated that it flickered and that Windows was for a short while somewhat unresponsive (she couldn't restart the system). The following day I turned on the laptop without any screen issues. I did research and noticed a lot of driver issues with the Nvidia GeForce 1050 Ti GPU were being posted, but most specified BSOD issues with the Nvidia drivers not the Dell drivers. Nevertheless, I removed the Dell drivers and clean installed them again. Afterward, I did a barrage of tests on the laptop to see if the problem was hardware or software related. These are some of the tests I ran:
- Dell BIST tests
- AIDA64 Extreme Stability and Monitor Diagnostics tests
- Futuremark 3DMark SkyDiving Benchmark and Stress Test
None of the tests could replicate any issues with the screen. No artifacts whatsoever.

Anyone see the same problem like this? I think this HW spec should be fine for playing 4K video?

Answer:Dell Inspiron 7567 UHD model problem with 4K Video on Youtube

What kind of bandwidth do you have?  Are you using a wireless connection?  If so, what speed - and what type of Internet connection do you have (DSL, cable, etc.)-- and what speed?
4K video is a lot more demanding than FHD video -- rough estimate is that you need a spare (unused) 15-20 Mbps just for that one stream.  If your cable bandwidth is 30 Mbps (common), make sure no one else in the home is using bandwidth at that time.   If you have a DSL connection (Frontier, etc.) you can just about forget 4K streaming - you're lucky to get 6-10 Mbps total.

I recently (June 2017) bought a Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567computer with Windows 10 installed. I have created a backup image of the OS and also burned a bootable disk so that I can reinstall Windows 10 at a future date.
My old computer (which uses Windows 7) permits me to change the boot order sequence by using the F12 key during the startup process to access the BIOS and then edit the boot order sequence so that the machine boots from a DVD or USB drive. This makes it possible to restore a backup image from a previous date or even to use a different OS, e.g. Linux.
My problem is that the F12 key does not work on the new machine and I do not know how to create a boot order sequence that will permit me to boot from a DVD or USB drive instead of the hard drive. So at this point, I cannot use the bootable recovery disk that I prepared. I understand that there is now UEFI technology that controls booting.
Question: How can I make make the new computer boot from a DVD or USB drive?
Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Richard

Answer:How To Change Boot Sequence in Win 10 on Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567

The new computer is faster than the old one so you have to try tapping F12 as soon as you turn the computer on to get to the boot menu. Keep tapping without waiting for any screen. You can also use the built in solution--which is useless if the computer won't boot so you need to know the tapping trick. Open Settings, Updates and Security, Recovery to see the options.

Answer:Audio playing through left speaker only on dell inspiron 7567 laptop

sandy5837Is there some setting i am missing out on or is it a hardware issue.
Hello. This is the audio hardware test for the laptop's internal audio hardware. It works differently from the other tests. If no sound is heard through the laptop's right speaker during that test, then the cause is hardware failure. If it passes, then it's software.
If it is software, then download and install a fresh copy of the audio driver. Get it from your model's support page, or I can give you a link. Installing a fresh copy will re-set the audio settings, which would fix it if the cause is mis-configuration of the settings.

Hi All,
I received my Inspiron 7567 Laptop yesterday. It has 512 GB Toshiba NVMe SSD. Windows 10 is preloaded on the laptop. SATA is set to RAID 0 in the BIOS.
I downloaded and created a bootable usb drive for Ubuntu 17.04 using Rufus. Tried installing Ubuntu from usb. Laptop didn't detect the usb. Disabled the secure boot and changed the SATA to ACHI in the Bios. After this, I was able to install Ubuntu 17.04 along with Windows 10 in the free space of 30 GB which was created by shrinking the C drive.
But after ubuntu installation was completed, I was able to login into Ubuntu when as SATA is set to ACHI. But Windows 10 failed with error "no bootable device found". I changed the SATA to RAID 0, then Ubuntu 17.04 doesn't load.
I restored the laptop to factory setting. Still the Ubuntu Grub remains in the system. Currently I have changed the boot order to 'Windows boot manager' in boot sequence. I am able to login into Windows 10 successfully. 
I would like guidance on setting up Windows 10 and Ubuntu 17.04 in dual boot mode. I already have a working Inspiron 5520 laptop which has Windows 10 and Ubuntu 17.04 in dual boot mode. But it has HDD. 
I never knew I will run into issues (dual boot) while ordering NVMe SSD. Any help/guidance in this matter is highly appreciated.

Hello,
I have bought a i5 variant of Inspiron 7567 recently (in Turkey -  1 weeks ago). But I have some problems with it. I thought Dell branded tech products would be superior to some random Chinese garbages.
First of all, look at this nonsense:

After 6 days of usage, I wanted to look inside of this laptop. And when I opened the bottom cover I saw this [Admin note,edited per TOU policy].
The wifi card is not screwed at all. These kind of things generally happen with very low quality laptops without brands. Even QA of Chinese laptops are better. And I am not joking.
Here is what I have found on the internet: (This is a picture of a review unit from gotten from Notebookcheck)

Yeah wifi works without "that screw" but this could lead to shorting issues. I would definitely do not want to use a laptop like this so that I inserted SSD screw to there temporarily.

Second problem:
Look at this image:

I have only recharged it 3 times (3 cycles) and battery health is 91% now. And when I first opened it, it was 4.9%. Is this for real? Brand new laptop with a battery which has 95.1% health out of box.
Why my laptop has inferior quality SMP (Simplo) battery instead of superior Samsung battery like others. Why the capacity is now 67000~ mWh instead of advertised 74000 mWh?

Hello all, I've recently purchased this laptop (Just out of best buy direct return policy) and It has remained docked at my desk since.  

I used the keyboard briefly during setup, but otherwise have been using my mechanical - well the other day I decided to use it and the backspace key popped up. Saw that the clips on the key itself were broken on one side.

I don't want to have to wait without my computer in hopes that this may be covered by warranty repair if I send it in, but I cannot find this keyboard anywhere but Ebay.

I would purchase it from ebay but the only sellers are located in hong kong and it would take quite a while and not be an assured fit.

Any ideas? Part number, etc? Basically I would just buy a new keyboard and take the backspace key off of it. 

I saw that theres a website for laptop replacement keys, but this particular model isn't listed. Is this keyboard shared with other models, just with either no backlight or with white text instead of red? I would accept a different kind of key if its the right size.

Thanks, sorry for the wall of text. Just wanting to get my keyboard back to new :-(

My current specs from Speccy if that would be useful to anyone:
Operating SystemWindows 10 Home 64-bit
CPUIntel Core i5 4460 @ 3.20GHz 26 °CHaswell 22nm Technology
RAM12.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)
MotherboardDell Inc. 088DT1 (CPU 1) 28 °C
GraphicsDELL S2340L ([email protected])Intel HD Graphics 4600 (Dell)
Storage931GB TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 (SATA) 36 °C
Optical DrivesHL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GHB0N
AudioRealtek High Definition Audio
I'm using the power supply that came with the computer (I assume 300W?) along with the above specs. So my question is will this video card upgrade work with my Dell Inspiron 3847? And if so, will I need a new power supply, or can I keep the one that came with the computer? If this upgrade isn't realistic, then a recommendation for the right direction to go towards would be appreciated as I am very new to messing with computer hardware/building or upgrading a computer.
I heard that the size of the video card could be a problem for the Dell Inspiron 3847, but this one is only 1.5 x 5.7 x 4.38 inches according to Amazon, so I'm pretty sure it is small enough for the case.
If anyone can help a newbie out then that would be greatly appreciated. If I am missing any details that are needed so you can help me I will try to provide with those if I can.

I got a new dell gaming laptop less than 2 months ago. Yesterday I turned on my computer and noticed that even when the actual fans were making almost no noise, there was still a fairly loud and irritating sound coming from the right side of my computer. After listening to it to see where it was coming from, it seems like the source is the right bottom vent, but I'm not 100% sure. Also, I'm running windows 10 and just now updated the BIOS.

Hi,

I have a new Dell 7567, i5, 8GB, GTX1050.
Problem is it runs smoothly on battery but as soon as plugged it, I see FPS drop till battery reached about full.
I've checked and re-checked all my windows/software settings. They're same for both modes (Power and Battery).
I'm honestly clueless what's happening.
All my drivers are up to date. Windows is up to date.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,
Shantanu

Answer:Dell 7567 lags/FPS drop while plugged in but runs perfect on battery

Please verify the System Setup(BIOS) version on the system. Type msinfo32 onto [Cortana] search box, and then stroll down to BIOS Version / Date. You should see it.

Over the last 2 days I have been having a problem as indicated in the title of this post. The fault has rectified itself 3 times, but again today, it is back to "battery plugged in, not charging." As I am running the laptop (Windows Vista Home Premium; 32 bit) on the adapter without problems, I assume that the adapter itself may not be faulty.
I also have a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop running Windows 7.  Can I safely use that adapter with the Vista laptop, without causing damage to the Vista ?  If it is safe to do so, and the battery on the Vista starts charging, then it would indicate that the Vista adapter/charger has some kind of fault.
Hoping someone can give me some guidance. Thanks.

Answer:Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. Battery plugged in not charging. Can I use adapter from a Dell Inspiron 630M laptop ?

If the adapter has the same plug and the same or higher power rating, you can swap them.
Check to see whether the 1545 recognizes the AC adapter or whether it shows unknown (F2 at powerup).  If it shows unknown with two different adapters, you have a bad power jack or a bad mainboard.

Recently I observed that my laptop was running a bit slow. On observing the temperature using SpeedFan I found the following readings
1) CPU core temp 59 degrees centigrade  at 100% CPU Load.
2) GPU temp 57 degrees centigrade at 50% CPU load.
3) HDD temp 47 degrees centigrade
Now from what I know the average temperature should remain in the range of 40-50 degrees centigrade. While the temperatures that I am seeing are all in excess of that. So here are my questions
1) My laptop is in excess of 7 years old. Is it time to change the thermal paste? Will I get some improvements and decrease in the temperature readings?
2) The Fan speed being reported in Speed Fan is a steady constant 922 RPM? Should I look at getting a new heat sink for the CPU and a new fan for the laptop?
3) Does it make sense to get a liquid cooler for a laptop? Basically I want to extend the life as much as possible of this laptop.
    Any comments guys?
-------------------------------------
Have a nice day

Answer:Steps to control the temperature of a dell Inspiron laptop

I suggest running Dell diagnostics; they often include a thermal test that may help let you know if the system is getting too warm.  
If you haven’t already done so, try a can of compressed air and fully clean the fan ports out. If you have already opened the chassis, check and make sure that there isn’t any dust or debris caked on the heat sink / processor.  Once cleaned out verify if any cooling fans are functional.
Try these basic steps first before considering replacing any parts, it can save you time and money.

The problem still exists even after Dell repaired the laptop. It took two weeks to get the repaired laptop back from Dell.

The problem is:
When I plug or unplug the charger while playing music/video on laptop, the laptop is freezing with buzzing sound for 1-2 seconds when the laptop begins charging. Even after Dell repaired the laptop, the problem still exists.
Tried installing the updated drivers, the laptop works fine only for a short period and then after some time the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.
Also, if the laptop is restarted it works fine for a while and then the same freezing with buzzing sound problem comes back.

Not satisfied with the Dell and Dell repair services.
Need help with this problem.

So Dell made a really terrible decision.  They have a transparent strip in the power button for an LED light to indicate if the power is on.  A power indicator is a given in any laptop, no matter how cheap it is.  However, Dell in all of it's genius decided to not include an LED bulb on laptops up to the Inspiron 7000 Series, despite leaving a transparent slot for it.  Seriously, what happened to this brand?!?  Do children make these laptops now?
I want to fix this, as my laptop is no longer returnable and a power indicator is absolutely necessary.  So the only thing I can think of is replacing it with one from the 7000 Series somehow (with some help probably).
This is a Dell Inspiron 5559.  I also have an Inspiron 5547.  Not sure which exact 7000 model I should get the part for...
Are they compatible?
Is there an easier way? Like how Fn+H turns on the hard drive indicator?
Thanks.

Answer:Can I replace a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series power board with a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series power board?

The systems use different case and mainboard designs -- and may even be made by different companies.  The answer in all likelihood is no.
I don't think Apple has produced a Macbook with a power indicator -- the PC vendors are playing follow Apple.

Can someone help me with this problem? So I just received my brand new Dell Inspiron 15 3000 and the battery is not charging. It says it's "Plugged In, Charging" but it never goes up and stays at 0%. At first I thought I just need to plug it in for several hours but it's been 5 hours now and still the battery stays at 0%. I tried running the BIOS Diagnostics just to see if there are problems and there's none. The battery status says everything is running normally and the Battery State says it's Idle. I tried draining the flea power several times, removing and reattaching the battery, but to no avail. I'm getting really frustrated and I'm really close to throwing this laptop back to Dell. 
I read somewhere that I have to update the BIOS but it won't update unless the battery is charged at least 10%. Someone also suggested that Windows 8.1 is causing the problem. I haven't even started using this laptop and it's already giving me a *** ton of problems. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks guys! :)

Hey there,
I've been using my upgraded Inpiron 17R SE happily for a couple of years by now. I've even gone as far as buying an 128GB SSD to futureproof it. This is the only drive - besides the DVD drive - currently present in the laptop. However I've had an issue for quite a while:
Whenever I try to boot the Laptop only using the Battery (even fully charged) it Posts then loads Windows and turns of just before the Login-Screen (I can't see it). When I proceed to turn it back on, it Posts then beeps and says that there is a Real Time Clock Error and gives me the option to proceed booting or to enter Setup.
This however doesn't occur when using the Power-Brick. Moreover it isn't always the case. Sometimes the Laptop boots and works fine just using the battery, but then upon opening a Programm (while under battery-power) it shuts of and gives the same error message again. If it decides to work the battery still lasts for 2-2.5 hours.
I'm really confused to what the problem is. It could be a power delivery problem, but it's still the original battery and laptop with only the HDD changed to a SSD.
I'm aware of it being a rather old machine, but selling it is my only hope for getting a new laptop for college, but I can't sell it in this state. 
I'm at a lost and really really sad because of this issue. I'm sorry for any typos or grammar mistakes, I'm a non native english speaker.

Answer:Inspiron 17R won't start. Only the first light turns on and of when I power up without the battery and Plugged power.

Unplug the system, remove or disconnect the battery, and hold the power button for 30 sec.  Remove the base cover and memory modules;  reinstall both.
Try powering up on AC only - if it will but won't with the battery, the battery is faulty.
If it still won't power up  after the foregoing, the mainboard is bad.

Hello, 
I have been looking for verification that if I buy the Dell 24 Gaming Monitor – S2417DG and attach it to my Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI that I will get full 2560x1440 resolution refresh rate 165 Hz with 1ms response as the Monitor specs are listed.
I can find no information that the HDMI will pass this level of output.
I have talked to Dell tech support and they do say that the HDMI port is connected directly to the  NVIDIA  GeForce GTX 1050T i with 4GB GDDR5 but I also have seen information that HDMI will not support this.
So I am looking for verification on this configuration being compatible/able to output the full capabilities of the video card to the monitor via the on board HDMI output?

Answer:Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI Specs/Does HDMI out support full bandwidth for G-SYNC Dell Gaming Monitor – S2417DG

First of all, G-Sync as far as I know requires DisplayPort and will not run on HDMI.  Even if it does, I don't think even HDMI 2.0 has enough bandwidth for 1440p @ 165 Hz.  And even if it does though, all of the Dell systems I've seen have only had HDMI 1.4, which is only enough for 1440p @ 60 Hz.  But even if all of that isn't a problem, does the Inspiron 7567 have ONLY a GeForce GPU, or does it have an Intel GPU plus a GeForce GPU?  If it's the latter, G-Sync will definitely not work because in almost all systems that have both GPUs, only the Intel GPU is directly wired to the display outputs.  If your system has ONLY the GeForce GPU, then G-Sync should work in theory, but again you may have the bandwidth problems I mentioned above.

My Dell Inspiron 1750 is a 2Ghz Dual Core Pentium CPU & has only 2 X 1GB of DDR2 PC2-6400 800Mhz SODIM Ram & uses a Hitachi 160GB HDD Sata 1.

About a year ago I upgraded this computer to W10 for a family member who has now given it to me & I have re-installed W10 on this laptop which has no drivers to instal as it is all done by Windows.

The performance is very sluggish like it has always been but thats why i'd like to try 2 X 2GB DDR2 PC2-6400 80Mhz SODIM Ram (can get some new ram for <?14 (DDR2 PC2-6400 2 X 2GB)) & run a mSata in it for the new performance it will have.

What I want to know as could not find out what is the max speed & size ram I can use & will the above improvements work my A/V software has reported to me "low ram" & "high disk write".

Could I put 2 X 4GB of ram in this or not as speeding it up would make it sellable

Answer:Dell Inspiron 1750 Performance Problem

From this: http://downloads.dell.com/manuals/al...uide_en-us.pdf

It looks like that system supports up to 8GB RAM that is DDR2-800. Get two 4GB DDR2-800 modules and pop them in. That will get you 8GB of RAM, much better than the 2GB you are dealing with now.

I recently purchased the 3656 desktop with the AMD A10 8700P, Radeon R9 360, 8GB (Single channel?) RAM.  Tried loading GTA V on it. Even at lowest graphics settings this game has major problems keeping up with the game.  Is there anything I can do to this PC to get the game playable? I understand this is most likely a processor issue from what I have read...
Obviously, I am very new to this, sorry if these are very bad questions. 
If I upgrade the RAM to 16GB with 2 separate 8GB cards will that 1) help and 2) be dual channel?
The RAM is DDR3L, which I guess runs at lower voltage.  
The processor says it is 1.8GZH but maxes out at 3.3 in turbo boost.  I set my PC to high performance and still had same issues on GTA V.  FPS were between 20-40. 
Am I SOL with this box? CPU cannot be replaced from what I read too.

My three year old Inspiron 7737 running Windows10 Home has ground to a halt mainly because of 50-100% ST1000LM014-1EJ164 disk utilisation. I was thinking about replacing this disk with a 500GB SSD however I do not have my original Windows8 media and associated license key (and this would need to be upgraded to Windows10 which I achieved free of charge). I currently have  643GB free of 913GB so this would be feasible if this could be achieved ideally without the need to purchase a Microsoft license and installing from scratch. 
Is there a cost effective way of speeding up my laptop using my current licensed Windows10 OS?
Thanks in anticipation. 

Answer:Improve Disk Performance : DELL Inspiron 7737

1) Your Windows 8 key would be embedded into your BIOS, so you wouldn't need it if you wanted to reinstall Windows 8.  But you don't even have to do that because....
2) When you upgraded to Windows 10, your system would have received a "digital entitlement" license.  Basically, Microsoft's activation servers have recorded that your system has a Windows 10 Home license, so you could perform a clean install of Windows 10 at any time and your system would activate just fine.  You'll never need a product key for that.
3) If you still want to avoid doing a clean install, use a tool like Macrium Reflect Free to capture an image of your system and restore it onto the SSD.  Or even better, buy a SATA to USB 3.0 adapter so you can connect your SSD temporarily that way, then do a direct clone of your existing drive onto the SSD, which Macrium Reflect Free can also do.  Then shut the system down, install the SSD internally, and you're good to go.
