Dell laptop user guides are available for all Dell laptop models. A guide is typically included with every laptop, but can also be downloaded from the Dell support website. Every Dell laptop model has its own guide with model-specific instructions and tips, and beginners and advanced computer users alike may benefit from reading them.
Dell laptop user guides are small books packaged with your laptop. The guide is divided into sections for different parts and functions of your laptop, such as the keyboard and purpose of each function key. Guides are available in several different languages such as English, French, Spanish, Italian and Chinese.
Dell laptop guides provide users with step-by-step instructions for using their specific Dell laptops and diagrams for easy reference. Guides also include information for ordering new parts, troubleshooting current parts, and installing and removing parts.
Dell laptop user guides come in different sizes, depending on the format you download. The print version of the main user guide is typically less than 50 pages. Individual guides for different components and setup guides are smaller file sizes than the main user guide. Dell laptop user manuals are approximately 5 to 6 megabytes. Other Dell laptop guides, such as hardware- or task-specific guides, can be anywhere from 100 kilobytes to 3 megabytes.
Each Dell laptop guide is different. Using the wrong guide can result in errors in usage and troubleshooting. Find your service tag, which is a small sticker on the bottom of your laptop. It includes identifying information such as a serial number. Enter this information on the Dell support website to find the correct guide.
Dell laptop guides are available in digital and print format. After choosing your model, download the guide in PDF or HTML format, which is typically smaller in size. In order to view the PDF version of the guide, you need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is free to download. Mini user guides are also available for individual components, such as network, security, software, display, case assembly and accessories.
