Dell Inspiron 17r :: Won't Turn On - Go Black After Flashing Logo
Feb 13, 2013
When I press the power button it will flash the dell logo then go black and sit there as long as I let it like that without changing. I've tried to research this situation and it seems this is a problem with these specific laptops. However, no solutions (like removing battery and ac adapter, pressing power for 1-2 min, reconnecting ac adapter, etc.) that seem to work for others have worked on mine yet. I'm concerned and starting to get extremely frustrated as I've only had this laptop for a month and a half. I'm a nursing student who has many tasks to complete on my (nearly BRAND NEW) computer daily and have a pretty nonexistent budget (which would explain my hesitancy to take it in for repairs somewhere).
My Inspiron 17R 5720 laptop (which came with windows 8) was working fine yesterday but whenever I try to turn it on today it shows the Dell logo briefly then goes to a black screen and remains like that. The F12 key works, but I can't change any settings as it will only let me highlight the diagnostics option. I've run diagnostics and recieved no error reports. Neither the F2 or F8 keys work, so I can't access BIOS or start in safe mode. I've tried removing the battery and unplugging the power.
I have a new Dell Inspiron 17R with Windows 8 (bought dec 12). From the last two days, the laptop freezes after boot. The screen (touch wood) is fine, since it gives me option to trouble shoot and all. I have a feeling its a windows 8 problem. I have done all the things (such as pressing fn and power logo) as mentioned in other posts. Still its not working. As of now the laptop is in pre-boot system assessment - all are done but Hard Drive 0 is stuck at 10% from the last 15 mins!
Why is the screen black / blank after booting dell logo? I do get 'Welcome' message below the Dell logo but after that the screen is blank.
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.....
What do I do? I have tried copying the files to a USB and powering on with Fn-Esc held down. After letting go of the power button and holding Fn-Esc a different screen appears after 30 seconds. I let go and have given it 30 minutes but it is not doing anything. I have read online from other people the power button should be blinking. Do I need to rename one of the files.
I was using my aspire yesterday to unistal an comodo anti virus program, then it stopped working. So I restarted the computer. it turn on but stay on the Acer logo. i tried the reset (HOLD POWER BTTTON FOR 30 SEC ) . It turned on but it still stay on the welcome Acer logo. whats wrong?.
First - temp issues: The bottom of my Y580 has been getting extrememly hot and my temp monitoring program says "GPU temp limit reached".
By hot, I mean if it comes into contact with your skin, it will give a light burn causing a red burn mark. This only occurs when I run something on my 660m like a game or other programs that make use of it. After it gets like this everything begins to freeze up perodicly and FPS drops to un usable levels.
I know the heat is to be expected with performance demanding applications, but this seems abnormally hot. I've opened the case and cleaned the fans and vents.
The fan doesn't seem to kick up very high like it does on Dust Extraction and I can't find anything to control fan speeds. I've also noticed that the AC power brick gets hot enough to melt thin plastic, like a grocery bag.
While the temps aren't a huge concern, the performance impact/FPS drops is. What can I do about this temperatures other than put a "caution contents may be hot" sticker on my laptop?
Second - black flash. Occasionally (once and hour) during a game or program running on my 660m the screen will have an all black flash for 0.5 second.
If I tab out and have a window running over a program running on the 660m the screen will begin to flicker all black for that window only. Like task manager over a 3d game. Drivers and everything are up to date and I've done clean installs.
I have a envy dv6 serial 2ce2502rs6 product b6b49av. It starts up with hp logo and goes to black screen. I tried repair before and it didn't work. I tried the hard restart and it came on and I selected repair and it didn't work again so I selected turn off and now it goes to black screen.
Once unit is powered on keep tapping the F2 key run the diagnostics test . It saysProcessor check passed. Memory quick check passed. Hard drive smart check passed. Hard drive short DST check FAILED.Failure ID OU7ATA-6B877E-QFPK1A-60U503Product iD b6b49avHard drive 1
I have a HP Pavilion M6-1045DX laptop and I recently tried to plug it into a display through the Analog RGB and I saw a spark and the laptop shut off. During that time I ran the laptop straight from the AC adapter without a battery because I don't really use it.So the laptop shut off and I tried turning it back on and nothing happened. The charge indicator light turned off even though it was still plugged in. I thought maybe the power adapter stopped working or something but I tested it with a voltmeter and there was still power in it.
So I decided to put the battery in and the laptop was able to turn on, but after a while, this one area that i never felt heat there before was really hot and later smelled like something was burning.But anyway, when it booted up, the screen resolution was really low and was on maximum brightness. When the laptop finished booting, it randomly started installing drivers (such as the WLAN and intel rapid storage) and yeah. Sound doesn't work either. I tried to plug the laptop back in and the battery won't charge.I turned it off and took out the battery and tried running it off from the AC adapter only but the power light was blinking constantly and when I press it, the WiFi button light (F12) turned on for a second and back off. I also hear this high frequency noise that I never heard before somewhere in the laptop.
My Laptop is Lenovo G460, I have no problem with it till about a few days ago, my problem is every time I boot my laptop, I got blackscreen between Lenovo Logo --> windows logon, it's took about 2/3 minutes with cursor appeared at the very top left corner which is really make me mad . And every time I shutdown my laptop, I faced a long time shutdown, after my screen off, my keyboard and mouse still on...after about 5-10 seconds then it's all completly off.
I try to figured out what's happened with my laptop, then I change my boot option (F2)
I changed Sata Controller from AHCI to Sata Controller Compatible, and now every thing is works! no more black screen, and not only that, now lenovo logo is just faster, but the problem is still happen, when windows logo going to appeared I got blue screen error (BSOD) then the laptop was restarted by it self.
I try to redownloaded and reinstalled the drivers for my Windows 7 64 bit, here are the following that I redownloaded and reinstalled :
Chipset Driver Intel Matrix storage Intel Rapid Store Intel Sata Controller Turbo Boost
I encountered a black screen while installing Windows 8.1 from a USB after the logo in the beginning.
I format my hard-drive (SSD), I had Windows 7 installed on it.
I removed the harddrive from my laptop.I attached my drive to an USB adapter and removed the partitions on the drive with "Create and format hard disk partitions" on another PC.Put the hard-drive back in the laptop.Tried again and the installation works smoothly!
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 just bought an aspire switch 10 last week, but I already got into problems with it.You see, when I turn it on, the acer logo appears, but then the screen goes blank and black.When I tried pressing some buttons, there is a mans voice and tells what the button I pressed is. Then nothing happens. It's just like that to every button. I tried to turn it of by just having the battery empty. Cause the screens still blank.What do I do about it?
my laptop vostro 3460 won't boot any more. When I turn it on it loads the Dell logo (I suppose it passes the POST) but then it just shows a black page. It could be anything, but I guess that it may have something to do with Windows 8 and the UEFI system. I also would be quite happy to install linux mint and get rid of Windows, but I don't know how to change the boot priority order.
So my questions are:
1 is it a hardware issue ? if not, can I solve my problem easily ?
2 how can I change the boot priority order, to install mint ?
I have a wired problem on my 1340 using windows 7 64bit. From time to time, not sure when but when Im on windows (desktop, surfing with firefox etc..) the screen suddenly turn black, I dont see anything thou the laptop still runs normally - if I press ctrl + alt + del, I do see the menu that lets me choose all the basic options but when I exits it I still see black. This problem solves itself after a min or two and I see everything back to normal - If I was installing something then the install just finishes (the computer works normally during this, its just the screen). When this problem happens something the screen flickers, I see windows back for a sec and then black again - and after a few times its back to normal. Anyone knows how to fix this ? Its quite irritating.
I got the "ATI display driver has stopped responding and has recovered from an error" several times over the last couple of days where my screen would freeze for a couple of second and then start working again and would display that message. I thought little of it as it did always seem to work afterwards.
Last night however it got extremely frequent happening at least once a minute and i decided to try and restart my computer to see if that would work. Now when I try to turn the computer on the screen stays black and will not do anything. I can hear that the computer trying to work as the fans are going and the power light is on, it's just the screen that isn't working.
I found these guides on how to fix the error message but at the moment both are no good as I can't even use my computer to fix the problem as the screen won't work.
I am pretty sure the reason my computer is doing this is because of outdated drivers as I recently did a fresh install of windows and only installed the drivers that came on the CD I was given with my computer. I should have downloaded the latest drivers online.
I am running Windows 7 on a Dell Studio 1558 laptop. I am unsure of the graphics card at the moment as I can't access the computer but I know that it is an ATI of some sort.
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 have a N5010 Inspiron. My battery has been down to a few minutes for a yr or two. I keep my laptop plugged in always unless traveling.
Today, my battery light started flashing. Amber for times then white then repeats. Since I was plugged in I was perplexed. I looked on my screen and it showed 100 percent battery meaning I am plugged in.
Then I turned my computer completely off. THE LIGHT KEPT FLASHING. Now it is getting spooky. I unplug the power supply from the back of the computer and the light went off.
Hours later I plugged everything back in. Started the computer and the light started again. Since it is no warning for anything other than the battery,
I tried unplugging while computer was on. Still flashing.
I turned off. Took battery out and put back in. Still Flashing.
While off AND battery out I plugged in and no flashing
Put batter back in....plugged in and flashing resumed.
when I try to start my Inspiron 15 the battery light will flash and then wait for a few seconds and then flashes again. I put a post tester and it says no codes and restarts and flashes again no codes.
I have been having problems getting my laptop to boot. I've performed a laundry list of repair options and nothing has worked. As of this moment, I've managed to narrow the query down to the flashing LED light code FLASHING Num Lock-SOLID Caps Lock-Solid Scroll Lock. I've done some further research and I've only managed to get sketchy information at best. It is saying that the problem has something to do with the processor or the system dock--if that information is reliable. I've had contradicting answers on that. I've reseated the processor several times, even switching the processor with a virtually identical processor from my WORKING Inspiron 1501 with no change. And just to confirm that the processor initially seated in the 1526 is working, I have put it in the 1501 and it works. I've swapped compatible components between both machines and everything has worked after being seated in the 1501.
I have an inspiron laptop. been working fine now all of a sudden the circle icon keeps flashing in the background it doesn't go out. Ran norton antivirus didn't catch anything. checked register disks everything ok. the computer is working fine except it just keeps flashing off and on again.
I tried rebooting removing battery nothing works. the only msg i received was a box that said wireless configuration OLE initialization failed, make sure that the OLE libraries the correct version. I am running windows home premiun 7.
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 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.
I was using my laptop today, and the battery light just randomly started blinking red, even though the battery still had 33% left. So I plugged it in, and the light still kept flashing and when I held my mouse over the battery icon, it said that it was plugged in but not charging. Does this mean that the battery is toast?
