I can see on this page (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam/Dell)
that no-one has done official testing on the Dell Inspiron 8500. If

I'm sure someone will have a solution to this - try reading some of the
other Dell laptop test reports, maybe there's a solution there.

Sorry I can't help you myself, Duncan
