Acer :: 5290G White Screen While Starting

Feb 23, 2010

my 5290g broke yesterday morning. after switching on, checking my emails and viewing some forums I decided to give old Silent Hunter 4 a go and then IT happened. Screen went pitch black, I could hear game's background music for few seconds and then all froze. After reset instead of ACER start screen I got white screen with some vertical stripes. I can hear HDD working, after a while I can see colours of my logging screen but everything is still a mess: after putting my password in screen is divided to 2 parts - one with my wallpaper colours and one black with single dots of different colours.

First suspicion was of course graphic card, but after opening the laptop I couldn't smell anything. So maybe it's LCD screen itself. I'm trying to borrow LCD monitor and check if the video-out socket is working to eliminate the graphic card.

My question is:

1. Did anybody had same experience with 5290g?

2. Can you recommend any decent online shop selling MMX graphic cards or LCD screens - UK only pls.

3. Any tips to improve cooling in this type of Acer?

Dell XPS L702X :: Flickering White Then Screen Turns White?

Mar 19, 2013

I have a XPS L702X, purchased it last year at the beginning of the summer. After a couple of weeks of use, the colors would change on the screen and the screen would start flickering. The dell people did a remote assistance and updated the bios and graphics software. It stopped for a little while. Then the colors would just change but not flickering yet. Then it started all over again, but now it would flash and lock up my keyboard, but I could still control the mouse with an external one. So I got a live CD to see if that works and it runs, but the screen still flashes white and gets static. I can see the desktop and move the mouse but it eventually turns all white and static comes through the speakers. Now the computer will not even turn on at times, it sounds like it is booting up, but then just shuts off.

I have also tried doing a system restore but it will not stay on long enough to go through the process, this last time it shut down completely before even finishing.

I have also tried using an external monitor and it will go through until the screen starts flickering.

My Acer Aspire V3 laptop (with Windows 8) stopped working and I tried to reset it but it fails after around 50% operation. I tried both reset and refresh options both not working.

Acer :: Screen- Wierd/white'ish

Apr 16, 2009

The other day my daughter clicked off the internet, and shut the laptop. I have the laptop set so if you close the lid it shuts down instead of "going to sleep". When I tried to turn the laptop back on I got the Acer screen, and then it went wierd/white'ish and I held the power button to shut it down so I could restart. When I tried to restart I got the "safe mode" restart screen. When I procceded past that I got a black/blue screen. Shut it down again with the power button. Now everytime I try to restart the laptop the LEDs light up, the fan kicks on, and the HD clicks and the laptop powers off. Then it will restart on it's own. LEDs come on, fan starts, and HD clicks and shuts off. It will do this as long as you sit there and let it. Doesn't matter if it's on battery power, or plugged in. I removed the battery and let it sit over night, reinstalled, and that exact same thing happens...

Acer Aspire V/-582PG :: White Screen Now Computer Is Dead?

Dec 12, 2014

I bought an Acer Aspire V/-582PG 15,6" HD touch a month ago. Today I was playing games with a couple of friends when the screen suddenly turned white. I could still hear the game music and could talk to my friends on mumble. I tried to put the computer to sleep and turn it on again, but the screen was still bright white. I then tried to shut it down and start it again; the screen was still white.
 
I then connected it to my tv using hdmi. This enabled me to see the Windows login screen. Shortly after I logged in to Windows, the computer shut down. Now i can't start it and none of the lights on the computer are on.

Dell Inspiron 17R N7110 :: Red Screen When Starting Up And Bad Quality After Startup

Apr 11, 2013

I have a Inspiron 17R N7110  and since yesterday i have a very peculiar problem. When starting the pc, instead of a black screen, the screen is red, the windows logo is very unclear. After the startup and at the login screen there are red stripes ( like clouds) all over the screen. 

And when logging in the quality of the screen is bad. When attaching an external screen there are no problems. I have checked all setting on the display to no avail. I ran the diagnostics on the bootup and found no errors.

Dell Inspiron 14z :: Stuck On Logo Starting Screen - Windows 8 Not Booting

Dec 25, 2012

My brand new Inspiron 14z remains on the starting DELL screen after boot up.

The initial windows 8 parameters have been registered properly (it seems...) and since the second requested reboot the PC does not go to windows 8. I have been suspecting a hardware problem and ran the full diagnostic (success!). There is nothing into the setup (F2) parameters which looks wrong and none of the boot options (F12) I tried have been successful... Is there a way to run a windows 8 safe mode boot or equivalent (note that I cannot go inside windows 8 top change this kind of option of course), and to move forward?

I desperate to see the someting else than this Dell Logo in the middle of the screen (forever?).

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Won't Boot - Stuck At Screen Starting Windows

Mar 6, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 that doesn't boot successfully. It gets to the screen indicating "Starting WIndows" and then just sits there. I tried safe booting but when it should be displaying windows files that are loading, the screen just stays blank. I tried selecting "Repair" boot but the system just blinks and returns to the window that asks me to select Repair or Normal Boot. (If I select Normal Boot, it gets to "Starting Windows" and that's it.

I checked out the hard drive externally and it appears the hardware is functioning normally. I successfully booted with Hiren's Boot CD. I would like to attempt a RECOVERY but can't get beyond the Repair screen.

Since Dell doesn't provide an OS disk with the computer that would allow me to reinstall Windows 7...

HP Envy15-3000 Lockups :: Notebook Freezes On Starting Windows Screen (booting Up)

Aug 15, 2014

My Envy15-3000 notebook freezes while starting up.  It only makes it to the Starting Windows screen then Microsoft  icons stop moving.  This has been going on since Tuesday (8/12).  I ran checks and the memory and harddrive (quick and full) tests came back positive - i.e. no problems.  I finally decided to reformat it yesterday (8/14).  It gets all the way through the reformatting process until it wants to start the system for the "first time" (I imagine that this will be the last time it restarts in the recovery process) and still freezes on the Starting Windows screen.  If I try to hard shut off and try any other boot up option I can think of (Safe Mode, etc.) it says Recovery Failed and asks me to retry, get details or Save Log.  When I retry, it goes back to the freezing.  As such, I am now in a seemingly endless loop of retrying the recover to get to the freezing start windows screen.
 
All I want to do is wipe the hard drive and reload everything.  I'm not interested in recovering the old data as I have everything backed up.  I got no error messages in my Run it, Memory, etc tests, so I am at a loss as to how to proceed.
 
I have the original drive recovery/windows 7 DVDs that came with the system.

Dell :: White Screen All The Time

Nov 21, 2007

I have a 9400 with a 7950gtx in it. I recently had to replace the inverter in the lcd because it was giving me problems. It worked fine for a day and occasionally I would get a white screen randomly but it would go away and the normal one would come back. Now its white screen all the time. Its definately not the videocard because i can plug in an external monitor and its fine. Is this the inverter? lcd? bulb?

As soon as he leaves, the laptop just shuts off. I try to turn it back on, and all three of the lights (caps lock and number lock and the other one) plus the three lights on the hinge light up for 5 seconds and then shutoff.

On the few times I have been able to get it to start, if I moved it at all, the entire system would freeze and I would get a white screen with a message that says "You have inserted a module into the D-Bay attached to your docking station, but this module is not supported by the D-Bay

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X220 Stuttering System - Screen Automatically Dims Itself While Starting Windows

Feb 3, 2011

My x220 is driving me crazy these days. Some days ago I experienced very strange behavior of my system. I was just using the notebook as always as it started to stutter.

With stuttering I mean everything is working for 1-2 seconds then is stuck for 1-2 seconds, working, stuck, working so on so forth.

With everything I mean the mouse movement, hard disk load, graphics movement, audio, everything simultaneously. This problem does show up not only if Windows is up but also when Windows is booting or if I start a live linux distribution.

I also noticed that sometimes when I'm moving around the ultranav trackpoint the cursor jumps to one display edge and opens a context window as if I had pressed the right mouse button.
 
What I did so far:

Reboot my system several times.
Checked Task-Manager: nothing out of the ordinary
Reset BIOS to factory settings
Updated everything to newest stuff
Started a live Linux distribution instead of Windows 7
Decrypted my system (TrueCrypt)
Deactivated Power Management/SpeedStep via BIOS settings
Switched to Single-Core processing via BIOS settings
Swapping RAM from 2x8GB CORSAIR to 2x4GB KINGSTON
Swapped SSD with original HDD
Try booting windows in safe mode

I'm almost at a point to say this can't be a software issue and that it is something mainboard/CPU/GPU related, but I want to be certain before contacting the support.

Another thing I noticed: The stuttering starts exactly when the windows logo shows up and the screen automatically dimmes itself while starting windows. Something is happening in that moment. I may need to add that I did not install anything prior to the current situation. That does support the hardware relation.

Lenovo X220 (Model: 4290-G51) | Intel Core i7 2460M | Intel HD 3000 | 2 x 8 GB CORSAIR DDR3-1333 RAM | 256GB SAMSUNG 840 Basic SSD | 9-Cell orig. Lenovo Battery 29++ (FRU: 42T4942, LGC) | BIOS V1.29 | Power Manager V6.65.1 | Power Management Driver V1.67.04.05 | Windows 7 Professional 64Bit (up-to-date)

Dell ::White Vertical Patch On Screen (E1705)

Feb 8, 2009

After a few years of good service, I noticed a white vertical patch about " thick on my E1705 yesterday. It's always there whenever the screen is on.

I haven't connected the laptop to an external monitor yet to completely rule out graphics card issue, but it seems like a screen issue to me. Last year I had a graphics card issue (garbled screen) and Dell replaced it under warranty but it's out of warranty this time ......

Dell :: Inspiron 8600, Straight To White Screen

Oct 15, 2009

We replaced the motherboard. Then it would start up but then shut back down. Swapped out the video card on a hunch, then we got a white screen with an odd color line through it periodically.

We can plug it into another monitor and it works fine so we're getting output.

Would this mean my screen is shot? If so, are there other models that will have compatible screens (17" XPS, for example)
