17R 5737 Sleep issues

Jump to solution

I just bought an Inspiron 17R 5737.  I had Future SHop swap out the HDD for a SSD. When I close the lid on my system for more than a few seconds, it takes about 30 seconds to re-start, and I lose all of my open Web sites, documents, etc.

I've had it in to Future Shop twice for this problem. This is totally unusual behaviour for a laptop.

Papaclaude,  Try this out  4th post down by Rong - R. 

http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3519/t/19542884.aspx?pi239031352=10#20517102

Worked for me.  Can't believe how long this issue has been going on and Dell have done nothing in the way of a fix.

Hi Papaclaude,

Welcome to community.

This may be an issue with the driver.I would suggest you to reinstall the Video card driver on the system to check for issue resolution.Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the video card drivers from Video section onto the system and install it.

Also, I would suggest that you run the diagnostics on the computer by following the steps mentioned in the video below and check if there is any issue with the hardware on your system.

Mohammed, based on what I've read on the other thread link you provided, this seems to be an ongoing issue. I have re-installed my OS and had it in the shop for a week to try to resolve this, Let me tell you that I am VERY, VERY disappointed in Dell. When I tried downloading the drivers last week, it did something to my OS, and I spent a whole day re-installing it. I tried all of the diags, and also flashed the BIOS to the latest version. If you can provide me with a proven working fix, I will give Dell a further chance, otherwise, back to the store it goes and I'm getting something that works

Hi Mohammed, I am trying to send you a PM, but when I click on "Send", I get the little round "working" icon, but it just keeps turning and the message does not go.

To be fair this issue has been affecting lots of dell laptops with the amd 8xxxm gpu and I find it ridiculous that the admin are suggesting to check out a possible fix from 7 months ago.  Muhammad,  Is anyone at dell actually going to do anything about this issue or is it going to go ignored for another 7 months?
