I have a three year old Inspiron 1545. About a month ago the computer stopped detecting the wifi at home. It never had this problem before, and the other household laptop and iPhone had no problem detecting and getting onto the the wifi. The problematic laptop will connect to the net via wire.
The optical drive may not be able to read or write CD/DVDs due to an issue with the Operating System, DVD burning software, optical drive firmware or the drive itself. Please click on the link below for troubleshooting the issue you are facing. http://dell.to/16y0CTh
