You can see other people complaining about very same issue here: http://en.community....t/19290102.aspx
So, it doesn't look, like it's just you.
Did you uninstall Dell Support Center yet?

The Magic Restart Button Has Failed Me! Noo! haha

But still, I have had terrible experience with Dell in the past year, and thinking that 85% of all my purchased laptops (previous and present, about 8) are from dell!


Time to find a new fav. laptop manufacturer :) Ill go with my new best thing. Toshiba :| Hope they dont fail me :)

Alrighty, We shall now wait to see if it will ever come back on!

Do you think this may be malware though? Any thoughts?

Possible too, but you definitely had/have Windows/drivers file issues.
When we're done here, you'll go to malware forum to check your computer there.

I already have downloaded the file that downloads the drivers yesterday.

I re-downloaded it and went to run it, and guess what? Another error, relating to Dell e support..

Don't even touch it.
We have to access Dell site and download what we want, not what Dell wants.

Yup, I clicked on download, it takes me to a DellDriverDownloadManager. Their drivers are available through DM not through the site! That is sad :'(

I cannot run their Download Manager. Here is the Direct Link to what I want:
http://support.dell....=&fileid=305902

EDIT_ I opened it up in a different browser, worked will :) (Had the option to use download manager or direct)

OK, here is your laptop's main page: http://support.dell....ndex=&typeid=-1

I suggest, you reinstall your chipset driver, first: http://support.dell....1&fileid=342057
Make sure, you read installation instructions:

1.Double-click the new icon on the desktop labeled R237653.exe.
2.The Self-Extracting window appears and prompts you to extract or
unzip to C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R237653. Write down this path so the executable (I.e.
Setup.exe) file can be found later.
3.The Self-Extractor window appears.
4.Click OK.
5.After completing the file extraction, if the Self-Extractor
window is still open, close it.
6.Click the Start button and then click Run.
7.Type C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R237653 in the Open textbox and then click OK.
8.Follow the on-screen installation instructions.

Then, go for reinstalling video driver: http://support.dell....=&fileid=305902

1.Double-click the new icon on the desktop labeled R215593.exe.
2.The Self-Extracting window appears and prompts you to extract or
unzip to C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R215593. Write down this path so the executable (I.e.
Setup.exe) file can be found later.
3.The Self-Extractor window appears.
4.Click OK.
5.After completing the file extraction, if the Self-Extractor
window is still open, close it.
6.Click the Start button and then click Run.
7.Type C:\DELL\DRIVERS\R215593 in the Open textbox and then click OK.
8.Follow the on-screen installation instructions.
