Dell Inspiron 13 7347 :: Screen Flickering Every 10 Seconds Or So
Jan 21, 2015
I just returned my previous Inspiron 13 model 7347 (the i5) because of screen flickering thinking I had a bad computer. The replacement is doing the same thing.
On battery the screen will flicker every 10 seconds or so. It is especially noticeable when the brightness is turned all the way down. I have tried going into the Intel HD graphics control panel and disabling the display power saving technology. I have also gone into Power Options and disabled adaptive brightness. I even went into the Dell extended battery life options and disabled Dell Intelligent Display. Nothing has worked. The screen still flickers and it is quite annoying. This is the second computer doing this in 4 days. I don't want to go back and return the second laptop if I don't have to.
Yesterday i bought a Dell Inspiron 13 7347 and I dont know whats wrong with the touch screen on my Dell Inspiron 13 7347. The screen keeps flashing white bubbles, white streaks and the icons are all moving around, shrinking/expanding; and jumping from one screen to another?
I disabled the touchscreen driver and now its working fine without the touch screen; by the time i enable the driver
So I was using my Inspiron 1545 and everything was going fine, then suddenly the screen just went nuts. It was green and pink, flickering, and had bars flashing everywhere. I turned it off manually, and after that it would turn on a few times (BIOS graphics were fine) but the desktop would be messed up. Then soon after that, I couldn't even get to BIOS. I press the power, the fan starts for like 2 seconds, then the laptop completely shuts down. I've tried removing the power supply and battery, holding the power button, then putting them back to no avail. I've also tried having it only connected to the power supply. I've even tried removing one of the two RAM.
I have an Inspiron 15R Windows 7. Set default power setting "Ballanced" but screen goes blank after 1 minute and 5 seconds not moving my mouse or depressing keyboard key on both battery power and plugged in. Screen should remain on 5 minutes on battery and 10 minutes plugged in. Tried resetting default power settings without success. Very distracting when trying to read anything that takes longer than 65 seconds.
My laptop DELL INSPIRON 5520 purchased from US was working fine for almost 2 years . Suddenly today screen started flickering and there is a white dotted line appearing at top .I have already run the diagnostic test and reduced the refresh rate to 40 hz from graphics card menu...
I turn my laptop on and the screen is dim but I can see everything fine it works fine but then I plug in the power and the screen brightens up to normal then 3 seconds later it goes blank everythin in the back round is still running everything is fine but I can't do anything because the screen is blank. So I usually have to turn it off and let the battery charge all the way which it does and that works fine. So then I can start it up on the battery working fine but as soon as I go to charge it while its on the screen goes blank...
I have a year and a half old Inspiron 5010N and after about 5 minutes of being on (plugged in BTW) the screen goes dim for about 5 seconds and then comes back to full brightness. It only seems to do this once, then is fine for the rest of the use. Power setting is for "performance".
Any need to worry about an impending failure or any way to troubleshoot? It's just unnerving and doesn't seem right.
I just received my new Inspiron 13 7000 series after much waiting... First use, all goes well, I set up windows 8.1 without any problems, look around, install a few software like google chrome, vlc player. All goes well.
But then, I shut it down and go run some errands, and when I come back it won't turn on anymore. The the LED on my charger is on but the one on the laptop isn't. what I could do?
I have a dell laptop computer (Inspiron 13 (7347, Mid 2014)). I tried to restore the win8 to a point but it failed. Now it can not start windows 8. "Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We are just collecting some error info, and then we will restart for you". My computer was restarted again and again but the problem is still exist. I think I need run windows 8 system restore but I do not know how to do it...
I just picked up an Inspiron 13 Signature Edition from the Microsoft Store. Pretty decent hardware so far. This is the model with Core i5, 8 GB RAM and 1080p screen, and was only CAD$699+tax after a $100 discount.
I noticed in store that I could not find any options to change touchpad behaviour in detail. Specifically I would like to disable single tap to click (considering this touchpad can press-click I'd rather not accidentally tap-click). I would also love it if I could have the gesture working where triple-tap is like a middle mouse button press.the non-Signature edition of this unit comes with Dell's touchpad driver and all I'd have to do is get the driver from Dell. However when I entered the service tag into Dell's site I did not find a Touchpad driver. I found one from Synaptics for its smaller cousin the Inspiron 11 and guessed it might be the same pad but I could not get the driver to work successfully.
I have had my Inspiron 7347 for a few days. When operating on the battery, the touchpad exhibits some quirks that make this P:C extremely hard to use as a portable laptop.
The mouse on the touchpad hangs up intermittently, sometimes for several seconds. This erratic behavior makes using the mouse terribly difficult.
When scrolling using the mouse on a vertical scroll bar, the right click menu for the desktop keeps popping up. I must move the mouse away from the scroll bar, left click to get rid of the right click menu, and return the mouse to the scroll bar. Sometimes this behavior is constant when scrolling through a long page, making it impossible to use the mouse to scroll.
Brand new Inspiron 13 7000 (7347) 2 in 1. Its just out of the box, and I'm just finishing windows updates and Dell Drivers.I seem to be getting this error message when I boot up, maybe 10-15 % of the time"AC power adapter wattage and type cannot be determined"..As with others, Press F1 to continue, F2 to check Bios, F3 to ignore this.In bios I see <unknown power adpater> I unplug and replug the power supply and it magically comes back as <65 watts>
When this issue is occuring, the battery won't charge, it held at 91%. I also got the warning in Windows one time.Is this just the power supply, or the laptop itself ?
I replaced HDD with SSD on my new 7347, and then did a clean install of "Windows 8.1 Enterprise N" in order to be able to run Hyper-V virtual systems. I have applied all Windows 8.1 updates and installed Dell 7347 drivers and updated the BIOS to A03. All is working except screen auto rotation.The Device Manager indicates that HID Sensor Collection has a driver problem and cannot start as shown below:
Clicking on the HID Sensor Collection shows the unable to start (Code 10) issue.Is there some other DELL driver I need to install? I have tried running Windows 8.1 Troubleshooting app and it shows this: I have also run the DELL Support "System Analysis" option as shown below and it loops on requesting me to install the 7347_Chipset_Driver_NDGM4_WN_220.127.116.110_A00 driver which I have done multiple times.
I'm thinking of buying a new 256GB SSD for my Windows 8 and music files, documents, steam games, etc. But I'm somewhat hesitant because I don't want to lose all of the data and reinstall games. How would I move my OS over to a SSD without losing everything on my hard drive? And is 256GB enough for these staffs?
Have disabled the auto adjustment option in the power settings -> advanced settings -> adaptive brightness.Have disabled the dell extended life battery options.Have tried the proposed workaround to cycle between local and external display settings.I received this laptop in Dec 2014, although it says it is a late 2013 laptop.
I just got my M1330 and so far its been working great. Except I have Just come across a problem. On the lowest display setting the screen flickers, does anyone else have this problem? I have been using the display in the lowest setting brightness to conserve battery, and it has never flickered or pulsed before?
I purchased a dell studio 17 off ebay and that is fully working and has a new battery.
The man selling it sells alot of laptops that he has fixed or replaced stuff on. He told me it was not refurbished at all but looking at his feedback i think he has replaced the screen and casing on the laptop.
Ive only had it a few days and noticed that the screen has started flickering in terms of going light and dull on and off very quickly. It only seems to happen though when im running on battery as its fine when its plugged in.
Is this laptop faulty or is it a minor problem?? as i won the bidding very cheap so i want to keep hold of it if there is nothing major wrong with it.
I've had this new XPS 17 laptop for less than a month. The screen started flickering about a week ago. I haven't dropped it or anything, and it doesn't stay black for any length of time. It will flicker off and on a few times in less than a second. I was just wondering what should I do?
I have a 4 year old Dell Inspiron 6000 that has recently been giving me a number of problems. For the past two days the laptop has been flickering between the display and a black screen, with it becoming somewhat more frequent as time went on.
I had read that it may be a loose wire and I had planned on opening it up and attempting to fix it myself (the warranty is over and I'd rather attempt to fix it myself first before paying to have it fixed at extremely high prices).
However, the lower right corner of the screen has recently started to become incredibly hot and noticeable smoke and burning has begun to occur. I immediately shut off and unplugged the computer and have not used it since .....
I posted it in the accessories forum, but didnt get much response..was wondering if you dell guys have a better idea on this.
Basically, I have a 2.5 year old Dell E1505 with ATI x1400 on it. I just bought a new Samsung T220HD monitor and I love that thing. But, when I first hooked it up and everything and ran dual monitors, my external screen flickers about once every 5 mins.
Then when I adjusted a few things, the external screen stopped flickering, but my laptop screen started to flicker, once every 5 mins or so. When I watch tv on my this monitor (it has a tuner built in),
there is no flickering, and when I use my external monitor as my main monitor (by closing the lid of my laptop),
I bought my Dell XPS 13 laptop (L321X) in December of 2012. Beginning in the middle of 2013, I began experiencing my display screen suddenly become scrambled. I am attaching a photo of what happens. I did not think anything of it at first, and honestly it would happen maybe once a month. I figured it was maybe that I had the laptop on my lap and it was getting overheated. In any event, I didn't think much of it.
Since the beginning of this year, I saw that it started doing it more frequently. Within the last month, it has been happening more and more frequently, to the point that it is disrupting my use of the laptop.
I have not yet tried connecting the laptop to an external monitor to see if the issue is with my video drive or screen. It's just difficult to attach it to an external monitor in time when the problem starts, because the scrambling goes away within 20-30 seconds.
my dv5t that is 11months old has been having flickering issues for like the last couple months. random lines just start appearing or screen goes dimmer, and it usually is fixed but just moving the screen back and forth. no idea what causes this. so i read other people have had the same issue and have sent it into hp, which fix it temporarily but the problem comes back. so my questions include
1. by now, does hp fully fix this problem yet?
2. what is usually the turn-around time? if i sent my laptop out on monday, when would i expect to get it back? i'm from TX btw
3. do i have to pay for shipping to ship it there? or will they cover that?
4. will my harddrive been reformatted when i sent it in?
5. can i remove my harddrive before i send it in (to verify i still have all my data)? where is HD located?
I have the new Macbook Pro 15" and went online to do some stock trading with my new Macbook. It seems like either my new Macbook doesn't like Scottrade's stock streaming or Scottrade's streaming quotes don't like Apple products
Anyone here use their Apple with Scottrade for online streaming quotes? The screen flickers like crazy when one inputs sell or modify orders.
