Dell Inspiron 17R :: Laptop Screen Becomes Green 5 To 15 Minutes After Startup
Jan 25, 2015
My Dell Inspiron 17R laptop boots normally. I can use it for some time, until the entire screen turns green. I still see the mouse cursor and I can move it around. Ctrl alt delete doesn't work. The only way to shut it down is hard restart.
I have dell inspiron 15R, 1TB HDD, i7 processor, windows 8.1. My C drive has 500GB(approx) memory out of which 200GB(approx) is free
It used to work fast but suddenly it became very slow. I tried restarting , it got shut down but was unable to start. So I ran diagnostic test which gave an error in hard disk with error code :2000-0142. The next morning I ran the diagnostic test again and it ran successfully without any error.
I formatted it from my recovery disk and it took me almost whole night as the formatting process was also very slow. My laptop still works very slow. It takes almost 15mins for start-up and my applications are also opening too slow.
So I just bought a new HP ENVY TouchSmart 17-j130us (Windows 8.1) a few weeks ago and now something is wrong with the screen. I decided I would connect my laptop to my TV monitor via HDMI. I set the laptop on top of my Xfinity cable box while it was plugged in (HDMI cable is too short) and continued doing my homework. A few hours later, when I unplugged it from the HDMI cable and picked the laptop up, the screen turned greenish and flickered. It went away eventually. But then I noticed that when I tilted the screen back or fowards or even slightly moved the laptop, the screen would turn green again and flicker green a little. I hope this is not my fault in some way. The touchscreen and the backlight works just fine. I can still see what's on the screen while its green. Right now it's fine unless I move the laptop or tilt the screen in some way. Also, when plugged into the TV, that’s fine as well.
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.
Recently my Dell Inspiron 1545 screen is showing green patches. They are only increasing day by day and after rubbing the screen they disappear for some time before appearing again. I tried some software solutions like pixelhealer etc but no use.
Is there any other way to eliminate dead pixels? How much the hardware replacement will cost ?
I have a Dell Inspiron 15 (N5040) and currently having problems with it. I was watching something this morning and suddenly the screen turned green and then shut off. It turns on but the screen refuses to. I first expected that the screen is just unplugged inside the computer so I tried to hook it up to my TV via Hdmi and oddly it didn't do anything.I took it all apart disconnecting everything and then reconnecting everything. Everything seemed to be in good shape. No signs of shorts. Then after letting it run I noticed it beep 4 times. According to Dell 4 beeps mean "Read/Write error." I don't know if they meant the ram or hdd so I tried isolating both sticks of ram and no difference. I tried putting in two different hdds, nothing different. Even if they were I don't know why the screen wouldn't turn on and the bios wouldn't try to load. I suspect that the gpu is just fried. Dell Inspiron 15 (N5040), Intel i3, 8 gb of ram. Windows 7.
I've had this computer for a long time. Last night it was working perfectly and then when I tried to turn the computer on, it loaded and went to the startup screen with the microsoft logo and from there it got stuck. I tried to hit F11 and do a diagnostic test but when it was finished it told me the computer was not able to restart because of memory or something like that. I've also tried to take the battery out, but that didn't work either.
I have a screen problem on my Laptop, on start-up it shows a white screen with black lines (Picture below) only happens once every 5-10 start-ups. Only happens for 5-10 Secs & sorts itself out before it boots up.
Other time it happens is when I'm using the internet, the screen just sticks, but then when I move the screen, it stops.
Had the laptop for 11 months no issues, I woke up to find the computer stuck on the startup screen. Tried rebooting, took out the battery, tried it pluged in, unpluged and it keeps stopping at the startup screen.
For the first week or two it worked fine and everything was going really well. Then about a week or two ago it started acting up. It is freezing programs(firefox, IE, Chrome, explorer, Flash CC, blender, and a few other programs I needed to install for school. It sometimes freezes on startup and I have to hold the power button down to restart it. Sometimes when it restarts it takes 10-15 mins to fully boot up and load up to the login screen.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1545. So, a few months ago, I got mad at my laptop and slammed the screen down. I think it was taking its sweet time shutting down or something. I can't remember. Anyway, the next time I tried to turn it on, it goes into Startup Repair, and then comes up with a screen of errors, namely "StartupRepairOffline", "Autofailover", "NoOSInstalled". I can go into advanced options and go into DOS command (it comes up to the X drive); I was able to successfully pull off stuff I wanted, but I'm thinking I damaged the hard drive. I've let this sit for awhile, using my daughters' laptop, but now I want mine back and want to repair it. What should I do first? Also, I don't think I have any startup disks or anything like that.
I was busy replacing my laptop screen on my inspiron (second time in 4 months!) and this time the screen doesn't turn on turn on when I start it. I can hear the OS running in the background and it make all the boot sounds.
My Inspiron 5521 warranty has expired a month back and now suddenly my laptop shows a message saying your battery has encountered a permanent damage during startup...The battery bar shows the mesage plugged in , not charging message and when i disconnect the ac power adapter my laptop shuts down...I tried updating my BIOS to A12 but it did not work...What is the problem here..Do Dell companies manufacture products which last only upto the warranty period or what??
My Inspiron N7010 was working fine until 2 days ago. I had it playing a movie through the HDMI port to my TV & then the video started to freeze up. Starting the next day, when I tried to start it up, it beeps 8 times & goes to a black screen, then eventually it turns off. I opened it up & re-seated the CMOS battery & checked all the ribbons. Tried holding the "d" key while powering on, the screen cycles through the colors & then goes black & powers off. Tried connecting to 2 different external monitors, could not get a picture on either.
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.
I have a dell Inspiron 15 N5010 which is about 4 years old. It was working properly, but suddenly it went off and when i restarted it, there was nothing which appeared on screen, but there was a beep sound which went on until i turned my laptop off. Even the startup screen didnt appeared during this. The power button lights up, fan is running, but the screen is not coming up.
I have noticed one thing also, if i put it on for long time, so that it gains enough heat due to constatnt running and then I restart it, the screen will come. and after sometime, the screen distorts and after few seconds, the laptop screen turns black and the beep sound appears which start crying until i turn laptop off.
My Inspiron 1525 when it starts up and I choose startup repair after a few seconds the screen will go black. If I start up windows normally, it will think and then shows a window that says " a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer".. I pressed F12 at startup and chose diagnostics and I got the error code 0142. What should I do??
I have an issue with my Inspiron N5010 screen, it doesn't work when switching on my laptop on Battery or AC mode. It happens a lot of times when I turn on the laptop the power button, the power indicators at the bottom turns on normally and the laptop is running without any weird sounds. But the screen is pitch black even doesn't show up anything when I concentrate on it in with a lamp or any light.
When I press the power button again even after 5 mins from the start time of being running the laptop just turn off immediately and doesn't take time to switch off as If the windows wasn't loaded!
I was resolving this problem by disconnecting the AC adapter > removing the battery > Pressing and hold the power button for 20 seconds technique.but today it doesn't work anymore, If there's anything I can do to get the screen backlight to work normally ....
it's just stuck there, the blue progress bar doesn't show up, I tried pressing f8 but nothing appears. I have also tried draining the battery and recharging then rebooting but nothing happened. It is completely unresponsive. It used to work just fine, just last night I've been playing games and it was working smoothly. But when I woke up and booted up my laptop, nothing was working. By the way, what's the small button underneath the laptop, I think it is the master reset button, because my brother was thinking of pressing it.
I am having DELL Studio 1558 laptop. Recently, my laptop is getting overheating problem. Once I start it, gets overheated within 15 minutes causing my machine to respond slow and finally it gets stuck. Then I have to hard-shut down it and wait till it cools off.
Configuration: 2nd gen i7,4GB RAM DDR3 1333MHz,750 GB(7200rpm) HDD, nVidia GT 540M 2GB DDR3 I bought a Dell xps 15 laptop with above configuration on August,2011 with an intention to play latest games.
I played Split/second, NFS:the run ,Max Pyne and recently NFS:most wanted. Split/second and most wanted runs on intel HD with sluggish graphics performance. But the run does not run intel hd,it requires discrete graphics. When I switched to nvidia graphics, every time the game computer hanged down after 5-10 minutes of playing the game. Computer screen froze and sound was looping. Control+Alt+Del didn’t work at this occasion.
I had to manually restart my computer. And a point here,there is over heat beneath the laptop though I use Logitech laptop cooler. Games run on nvidia on battery for about 20 minutes on battery power and heat produced under the laptop was also less. This thing happened with every game I listed above and some other graphics demanding games also. Same games worked fine on my friends Dell inspiron 15 laptop with an 2nd gen i5 ,4gb ram and nvidia gt525m 1gb ddr3 graphics card. And of course,these games were installed from same setup file those I used to install games on my computer. So,there can’t be problem with games file itself.
I called Dell xps premium customer support over phone. They told me to install all latest drivers and bios. I did all the things they told. They also remotely diagnosed my computer but nothing good happened. I then went to dell service Centre at Kolkata. I showed them the problem by playing games before themselves. They reformatted and installed all the things again and changed my harddisc. But my problem was not solved. I contacted service Centre again. But they found no problem after diagnosing my computer. But games did not run. In a nutshell, through a span of 1 year my problem could not be solved. And my warranty period has also expired.
I have a Dell E4310, about 2 years old. When I connect the charger just to a power socket the green light on the charger comes on but when I plug the other end into the laptop the green light on the charger goes off, I have taken the battery off the laptop and it still does the same thing, and in both cases the laptop will not power up and no light appears on it.
So I got this laptop 3 weeks ago, it would take 10 seconds to boot. now it takes like 2 minutes, all i did was change my anti-virus. i just finished a system restore, but still the same speed. im starting to think its a hardware problem, but all the diagnosis test show no results.
The operating system is loaded, and the computer (XPS M1330, Service Tag 7GQ814J) monitor glows white. Then appear on the screen gray vertical stripes. Until this fault computer worked with green vertical stripes on the screen.
I bought this laptop of your company pavilion p077tx 3 weeks ago........... in the starting it worked fine but now every time when I switch it on it freezes after 5 mins, I have to use the power button to turn it off....... what should I do??
Recently after my computer screen crashed: my screen froze and all over the screen green stripes were visible. After a forced shutdown and restart, my computer screen started up with the screen flickering red-green-blue-white-black all over again.
To see if it had anything to do with my LCD I connected my laptop to an external screen. (I'm currently writing this on my TV-screen with input from my laptop, but all over the screen there are vertical green bars, 5 of them) If I set my resolution lower, the screen bars seem to spread out over the screen as if my screen was woven together with green cloth. I have tried another input with a different cable(DVI) but the same problem occurs.
Atfirst I thought it could be a virus, as I wasn’t really doing anything heavy for my CPU. Since my computer wasn’t really able to start up, I thought I couldas well just install Windows 8. I deleted everything in the process. After this I’ve installed every driver necessary (Windows 8 does this automatically for the base drivers I think). Both my graphics card run the latest Nvidia Driver,downloaded from their site. Only one stopped working(image) Also my PCI device says it has no drivers. Only there are no drivers downloadable from Dell that are compatible with Windows 8.
Main question: What causes the problem described? Is something repairable or do I have to buy new things?
The last 2 days I have wasted my time trying to fix my laptop. I have tried many things en read many advices all over the internet, but unfortunately every post is a little outdated and not similar to mine.

I have attached the images in which the error message is shown. For my graphics card I have installed the latest Nvidia drivers available. It might also be a problem that my graphic cards aren't used for the output of my display.
The drivers for the PCI device on Dell are outdated and not compatible with windows 8, which I run my computer with now.
