Hello...I wanted to know if anyone has been able to use Debian wheezy on
the laptop Dell 7535.
I have been able to install Debian on the laptop successfully...however I
got some issues after installation:

- No Sound
- Can't control screen brightness
- No Wifi..i have already followed the steps on (
https://wiki.debian.org/WiFi) and tried several drivers but it still does
not detect any wifi connection.

I would suggest debian jessie for best hardware support, especially for a
recent notebook. However, take care that many wifi drivers are inside
non-free repositories.
try with dmesg and lspci to understand the exact chipset/driver you need,
than verify with modprobe if the right module has been loaded.

kernel from wheezy-backports helped me much with Dell 3540 - kernel
- video driver
- wi-fi driver

... and the firmware from non-free repository.
I usually don't use testing/unstable on my HW.
