Disable some of programs in Startup, especially McAfee or any other antivirus programs.

Turn off any unnecessary background apps in Privacy Settings.

At left bottom of taskbar, click on windows icon, click on Settings, Privacy, and then Background apps.

Update system setup( BIOS) on your computer. Please click on link below:

After you update BIOS then I suggest updating Chipset and Video drivers. Please update drivers one by one or installation order.

If you play a lot of games then I suggest you download the NVidia driver from Dell Product Support page or look for latest NVidia driver from the link below:

I noticed that the dell logo appears twice, once with the loading circle spinning and the other time with the loading circle frozen. It also takes about 130 seconds for me to get to the login screen.

Too many problems. You might as well use the system image that you have created or reset windows 10.

RE: Dell Inspiron 15 3558 SLOW

I too recently purchased this model and am very disapointed. I went to replace the HD with and SSD and increase the RAM but there is no access panel on the back . I tried to remove teh entire back cover by taking out all of teh screws mut teh back cover does not release. I have traced teh edge to find a release point but no luck. This is very frustrating. Any suggestions?

RE: Dell Inspiron 15 3558 SLOW

10 days into my new Inspiron 3558-i5-5200U cpu @ 2.20GHz,  4 G ram, I'm having performance issues.

1. More than 3 minutes boot time and further 2 min until it takes my first command(mouse click)

2. Slow on regular work, a right click menu appears after a delay of 5-10 seconds.

3. Internet speed slows down(As compared to hp-machine placed beside and connected to the same wi-fi)

4. Even the wi-fi signal strength shows low as compared to the adjacent machine

5. The Bottom part heats up and becomes impossible to hold it in your lap.

My usage is limited to only 1-2 hours per day, with no extra software installation other than those provided along with the purchase.

Spoke to customer care but it seems it wouldn't benefit much.

Any Dell repersentative on this forum,

Please help...

Hi maddiot

I went back and made changes to some of my posts on the first page. Please go back and try some of my suggestions. I'd suggest you first update System Setup(BIOS) on the computer and see if that makes a difference. Please watch video I've posted on 1st page to safety install latest BIOS.
