My inspiron 11 3147 laptop will not:
-go out of airplane mode
-adjust brightness
-adjust volume

I have tried with no success:
- pressed fn + prntscr
-gone in device manager> Human interface devices > uninstall device then reinstall device. Then restarted computer.
-Went into settings and unchecked put in airplane mode when low power.

My first line of advice is to follow what I have written up in:

     Presenting the willfully ignorant with facts is the very definition of casting pearls before swine.
