A couple of years ago when the model just came out I bought two of them from Game Stores in Kitwe. I regretted after months of troubleshooting the laptops. Dell Inspiron 15 3000 takes 7-10 minutes to boot. And like me all complaints about this Dell are from Day 1 of purchasing the laptop.

This laptop is frustrating the <Substitute character removed>out of me, it isn’t even 5 months old I paid $1200 for this which I think is a pretty expensive price for a laptop that runs slower than the one I was replacing (8yr old Toshiba Satellite).


omg just bought this machine yesterday. 9 minutes to boot up!!!!!!!!!!!! Ran diagnostics. No issues. What the he’ll did I get myself into!


Same problem to me…Please give me a solution other wise i can’t use this..It taking 5-6 mins to start the laptop 

I have the same problem, really frustrating.. I also missing my 10 years old Toshiba Satellite. Someone contact you with a solution?? I just bought this computer, please let me know if I just lost my money. First time with a DELL and I’m not happy at all.


I have the exact same problem. Ran Diagnostics. No problems found. Takes 9 minutes to boot up to start screen and a further 10 min for the system to become responsive after logging in. Laptop only few months old. 

I bought the Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series months and months ago. Since day 1 it has been slow. I get so frustrated that I want to throw this lap top over my roof. I just cant afford to buy another one. I never go on forums and finally wanted some answers to my question, is it just me? I find out, its not just me. What is wrong with my lap top? Sometimes is works, I come back 1o minutes and its slow as ***. Took my 15 hours to download some software, everything freezes, i have to do a hard reboot sometimes. 


RE: Inspiron 15 3000 series laptop has run slow since day 1! PLEASE HELP!

Good morning. The system that nothing wrong has been found. Even this morning in trying to run a simple program and 90 % of the time i get “program not responding”. so i have to wait. This is extremely frustrating because this has happened since day 1 i got the computer. Also the diagnostics took 4 hours to complete.
