Dell Inspiron 7568 Troubleshooting

Computer will not power on ¶ 

The laptop will not respond or show any sign of powering up

Faulty Power Adapter ¶ 

Ensure the power adapter is plugged in and the charge light is on. If the light is not on, and the adapter is plugged in, the adapter is faulty. Consider purchasing a replacement adapter.

Faulty Battery ¶ 

If the power adapter is plugged in, and the light on the adapter is on, make sure the adapter is connect to the laptop. If the laptop only powers up when the adapter is plugged in, regardless of charging time, then the battery is faulty. Replace the battery using our battery replacement guide.

Motherboard is Faulty ¶ 

The Kindle is a relatively simple device in that it does not contain many components. Through process of elimination, faulty parts can be narrowed down easily. If the Kindle does not turn on after the previous steps, it is likely that the motherboard needs to be replaced.

Keyboard not Responding ¶ 

The keys on your keyboard won't respond or appear to be broken

Faulty Keyboard ¶ 

If the entire keyboard fails to respond, try replacing it with our keyboard replacement guide.

Unresponsive Touchscreen ¶ 

The monitor on your Inspiron 7568 does not respond to touch and display remains the same.

Outdated Display Driver ¶ 

Use Dell's "Detect PC" tool here. Select "Drivers & Downloads" and ensure that your touch drivers are up to date.

Defective Display ¶ 

If updating your drivers does not restore touch functionality, it is possible that the display assembly needs to be replaced.

Device is Overheating ¶ 

While you are working, your computer randomly shuts off without notification.

Dust in Vents or Fans ¶ 

Computers can overheat due to excessive dust and other materials stuck in the vents or fan. To fix this, use a compressed air duster to carefully blow the dust off the vents and fan.

Faulty Fan ¶ 

If the fan shows no sign of turning on when the computer is powered on, you may need to replace it.

Touchpad not working/Frozen mouse ¶
