Dell Inspiron 14R/15R/17R Turbo Laptop Thread

well, that seems to perfectly fit my case..
as i got this error after 2 days of BIOS update, searched the internet, and found 3 possible culprits:
1. Either the pin of the charger is not properly seating to the jack, so either replace the charger or mobo..
2. Either any capacitor or part of mobo is broken, in this case replace mobo, but this might not be the case with me, as it's automatically fixed both times, if mobo had failed, then the problem must have been permanent.
3. Either a stupid BIOS update is conflicting with the charger settings, this was the case many people faced, after BIOS update, system would sometimes refuse to accept the charger, this probably seems to be my case..

So anybody who has updated to A09, do post that if you have faced this problem or not???
Also after BIOS update A09, my wifi sometimes disconnects and reconnects, but this happens rarely, hardly once for a second or two in 2-3days..

i m using a09 but not any such issue

Some of the Dell 14R and 15R models come with 4GB RAM. Has anyone tried upgrading this to 8GB? If yes, whats the approx cost of the additional 4GB RAM module? Should I purchase it from Dell or buy it through another reseller like Flipkart?

Guys, can anyone tell G.Skill SQ DDR3 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) Laptop RAM (F3-1600C11S-8GSQ) - G.Skill: Flipkart.com 8gb ram from flipkart is compatible? I am not sure about the latency thing

yes, the latency is same, so i think this should be compatible..

@ Ratul
I then advise you to redownload the bios,install it...If the issue continues,better roll back to previous bios

ok, re-installed the bios, let's see what happens.. :pray:
and how to downgrade it??? is it like just install the bios, or some other procedure is followed, as i have heard that it's difficult to downgrade the bios.. :?

Has anyone with Dell technical support if installing additional RAM will void the warranty? I tried getting in touch with Dell customer care, but as I haven't purchased a system yet, they wouldn't give me a concrete answer. one representative told me that depending on the model and if that part is a CRU (customer replaceable unit), the warranty won't be void.

until you don't physically damage the laptop doing this, adding RAM does'nt void warranty..

I wonder what happened to Inspiron 15R. I contacted dell sales rep and they advised me to buy turbo. I think they are making changes to dell 15r config

Dude, there's no wifi driver in there. There is only quick set, and card reader and touchpad drivers.

i think you must be downloading for windows 7...
wifi driver has been updated for windows 8... :p

same here, I think they want to push out all the remaining inventory before introducing new models. It sucks that I cant get the laptop that I want. Have started looking at other models mainly because of this.

guys please help urgent:
i've bought Dell Inspiron 15R 3rd Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 500GB/ Win8/ 1GB Graph from homeshop18.com from their superdeals
today it got delivered, the piece seems fresh.
however, there's a problem, when i played some songs, the sound seems less in the left speaker compared to right
can this be a hardware issue?
or it might be windows 8 audio drivers problem?
what should i do to get this rectified?

Try reinstalling the drivers first, check volume settings for proper mid-balance.
If still it persists, then there's some problem that you should refer to CC for.

difference is minute, but its noticeable.
i tried reinstalling latest drivers for windows 8 but the problem is still there
even i'm disheartened to know, one of my friend told me, even if u will take this to dell service center, they wont entertain for such small issue, they would probably say, "sir, both speakers r working, there's no problem"
can this be windows 8 problem? i'll be switching over to windows 7 in a day or 2
