Dell Inspiron 17r SE 7720 :: Don't Start Up Only Show Logo
Apr 13, 2013
I've had a Inspiron 17r SE 7720 laptop for about a month now, and it's worked wonderfully. However now when I go to start it up it gets stuck at the Dell Logo screen, sometimes the bar fills up and it goes to a black screen. And the bios don´t load, only show a loading bar but never loads, i try removing the battery and turn it on only connected to the electricity did not work. always hear the sound of the fan but does not load the OS...
When I power up my laptop it won't go past the dell logo. I tried the removal of the battery test. I also tried running the diagnostics test and everything was good. There were no error messages. What can I try next?
I bought this laptop in December and have had no problems with it. However, today I shut down and updated and then a few hours later i tried to turn it on but it does not work. When i turn it on, the screen shows the dell logo and then turns black. After a minute or so this occurs again and then an empty bar appears at the bottom with text next to it that says "F12 Boot options."
I have a problem with my brand new Dell Inspiron 15R SE, that I bought yesterday.
In the evening I could use it with no problem, other than it unexpectedly disconnected from the wifi once, but otherwise it was OK.
This morning it didn't start at all, when I press power button the Dell logo appears, and it stays like that forever, nothing happens. The power and the Wifi LEDs are on, when the charger is connected, the LED is on too.
Dell Inspiron 7720 (17R SE) approx 2 years old, just started having problems about a week ago when turning on the computer. LEDs flash and dell quickset buttons light up; but then process just dies, screen is black and only the LEDs by the power symbol and on power buttons are lit, never reaches the Dell logo screen, no fan sounds or anything.
At first, hitting the power button to turn off then back on and the second time the boot process would work. Then it failed to do that, so I had to remove the battery, pull the power cord and hold the power button down for 30 sec's, and then it would boot normal. Now even that does not work, just have to keep powering down and re-powering and after a random number of times, 10-30 it finally boots normal, every once in while it will work first try. It seems to be getting worse.
I have used the Dell Diagnostic on boot (though it took many tries to get into the ePSA, that did not detect any problems. When I use the Dell Support Advanced, no problems detected, and I specifically rand the Motherboard (which included CMOS test) and those did not find any problems.
If I put the computer in sleep, it comes back fine. It is only when I shut down, laptop just will not boot until I hit power on (fail) / power off repeatedly until finally, as if by luck it works fine.
I've had this laptop for 2-3 years and It had a motherboard issue within the first month of getting it, I got a new motherboard and all was dandy, but now there is apparently a system timer failure. The only thing plugged in to it is my charger and the last time I used it I didn't even have internet I just watched a few shows that I had on it and then I closed it when it was running out of power. When I hit the power button it seems like its going to start, and the buttons on it light up and then it starts to beep four times then a break then repeated four times. Nothing appears on the screen.
I am currently using windows 8 as my OS. When I attempt to start my laptop the Dell logo flashes on the screen and the screen turns blank/black and sits there for a few min before displaying an empty bar and F12 Boot Options in the bottom right hand corner.
I have attempted to press F12 to try and load windows in safe mode but everything is frozen at this point.
Is there a way to determine if its a hardware issue or windows issue. When I searched for the issue I found some with a similar issue but the link provided for support was no longer valid
I needed to use Windows resore. after restart, the acer logo dont show and laptop stay in black screen and HDD LED blink in aqual time slice. Then after a few minutes acer logo shown and Windows starts.
This, happend few times but now acer logo dont show and it stay in black screen .
I should have left it alone but I've never had a bios go corrupt during update. Had A03 BIOS and attempted to update to A09.
Laptop locked up during the flash and now it doesn't even show the bios start up! I removed the BIOS battery and LT battery. Maybe I need to wait longer then 5 mins for the entire system to discharge and then try power up again. So far just a black screen!
I just got one problem fixed with loading a new hard drive now this.
I have a HP G26 notebook pc, it has windows 7 on it and when I turn it on it only get to the windows start up screen with the little flashing logo and won't boot any further.. I have tried system repair, my back up disks.....
I bought a new Inspiron N7110 about 9 days ago and when I first got it, the dvd/cd drive worked fine and showed up in windows explorer. Starting yesterda, the drive does not show up and will not autorun. The drive does show up in device manager and no problems are listed.
I have a new 17R 7720 SE- that worked great when I got it, but after all the Dell updates- the Waves Maxx doesn't work, and if I use it for more than an hour the screen turns white and the Laptop screen then goes blank! I've called Dell and they told me the 17R 7720 SE runs hot because of the internal 2gb nVidia 650 Video Card.
I spent the money for a Cooler Master Laptop cooler with 3 Fans (separate A/C adapter to run this thing) and the Cooler Master sounds like a jet airplane under the Dell- and the Dell screen still shuts off. The only way to solve this is use an external monitor... if I would have known this I never would have order this worthless Inspiron.
I write this from my trusty Latitude D630- it's never let me down... the 17R 7720 SE has nothing but trouble! Dell recommended I reformat the Hard Drive, and re-install the factory software from the System Restore Disc...
Laptop show black screen when switched on but there's no problem when connected to secondary display monitor. Can still hear the startup sound though. Before this the laptop beeps when charging but stop beeping when battery is inserted.
I purchased my laptop a little over 2 weeks ago. After the first week I noticed that when I turn it on the dell logo will come on and then immediately go to a black screen. At that point I have to power off the back on and it boots normally. I flashed the BIOS to the A11 update but the didn't fix the issue.
Brand new Dell Inspiron 17R SE has started to switch off in a few seconds after I hit the start button. I tried going into setup using the F2 key and just doing that and exiting without saving allowed me to restart yesterday. Today, that didn't work. I had to go to Boot Options F12 and I tried randomly changing secure boot to ON and then exiting by discarding changes. That worked. I don't want to be doing this everyday.
i have a problem with my precius Dell Inspiron 17R SE 7720. I have actually 2 HDD of 1TB. I want to install a mSSD into the mSATA conection. The mSSD is one SAMSUNG EVO 840 of 250GB.
My problem is... all my conections are SATA2?????? I read in this forum than Dell Inspiron 7720 are 2 SATA3 conections, because the HM77 supports only 2 ports of SATA3... but when i passed "CrystalDiskInfo", i see in all drives SATA 300 (2 hhd and 1 msata).
Today when I booted up my laptop, it shows the Dell logo and goes to a screen that only shows me a few things. It says "Boot mode is set to:UEFI; Secure boot:ON" Then there are two categories, "UEFI BOOT: Network" and "OTHER OPTIONS: Setup, Diagnostics, Change boot mode settings" I ran the diagnostics in ePSA and it said there's something wrong with the video card. It gives error 2000-0332 - "Video memory -Video memory integrity test discrepancy"... when I searched for this code, it said the solution is "Flash latest BIOS, retry diagnostics."
I received my new Inspiron Utrabook today . Everything was fine for the first time that I booted. When I tried booting the second time, it's stuck on the Dell screen. Tried hitting F2 as per the suggested posts but to no avail. And how do you remove the battery ?
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.
I recently purchased an Inspiron 7720 in October 2012. A week ago, the laptop started freezing up while playing world of warcraft. I checked my Nvidia video card and there were some updates. I installed them and the computer started working normal again. On Saturday, while I was using Skype to transfer a file, the computer gave me a white screen and I had to hold down the power button to get it to shutdown. It rebooted and was working normal again. Then yesterday (Sunday), while using video chat on Skype the computer screen went into a flashing color pattern and I had to hold down the power button to get it to shutdown. Are there any diagnostic tests that I can run before calling Dell's tech department? I believe it is a video card issue but not completely sure.
I've been expecting a problem recently; when I turn off/restart my Inspiron 7720 and I press F2 to load the BIOS, I notice the bar fills but it continues and loads windows normally. I tried updating the BIOS from A10 to the newest A12. If i press F12 for boot options it works fine, it's only when I press F2 for the BIOS.
