Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 7579 that I bought last November from BestBuy. It first shut down automatically a month ago, with the screen turning blank followed by the back-lit keyboard. At that moment I was looking up new articles with Word and Spotify running in the bg, so the use was fairly light. I use it for school (homework, video meetings), photo editing, digital art and some video streaming, so usually only 6-7 of 12 GB of RAM is used.

Is there a check I should do before heading to BestBuy? Any tip is appreciated.

Sora

Hello Sora,

Looks like a power supply problem. I would not even try to find a solution on the net.

Your laptop is still on warranty but not for long. Unless you purchased an extended warranty, Best Buy will not take it back or exchange it.

I suggest you hurry and contact Dell warranty support at:

1 (800) 847-4096

Here is the web address:

Do not delay and good luck
