Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Flashing Colors On Screen

Feb 25, 2013

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.

Acer Aspire E1 :: Screen Began Flashing Random Colors

Oct 13, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire E1 model Q5WPH, runnng Windows 8.  All has been well until this week when the screen began flashing random colours.
 
I powered the machine off and from then on it refuses to boot back up.  Power appears to be getting through as it starts up the DVD drive but then the power light goes off - then back on and the process continues until I power the machine off again.

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Start Up Black Screen No Boot

Jan 11, 2015

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.

My mums computer has ended up in a Black screen "Preparing automatic repair" loop and therefore will not boot :(

None of the repair options work from the boot options etc, so I need the OEM win 8.0 installation disk, so that I can at least boot to safe mode and maybe correct from there once out of the boot loop.

Dell :: Studio XPS 16-lcd Screen Colors Are Over-kill

Mar 14, 2009

I have seen this issue posted online (via Google) but I haven't been able to find a resolution to the problem (because I don't feel like sitting here reading through hundreds of pages in forums or trying to search using the perfect keyword to pull up my answer).

The color saturation on the 1080p screens that come with the Studio XPS 16 are extremely over-kill.

This notebook comes with a ATI card and not NVidia (I'm use to NVidia and being able to use the "digital vibrance" setting to 'calm down' the over-kill of the colors. However ATI's setting for this is greyed out and can't be accessed ......

Dell :: Got A New Studio 1745, Dissapointing Skin Colors On Screen

Nov 5, 2009

My old notebook keyboard died, and despite my apprehensions about buy a notebook with a glossy screen, I recently purchased the most recent upgrade of the Dell Studio - a 1745 (according to the number on the bottom of the laptop) from Best Buy for about $800.

While I was worried about the glossy part, it turns out there's another, much larger problem - I intended to use it to edit photos (I'm not professional, just like to play around with them sometimes) and I've found the colors, despite being a "truelife" display (I got the "900p" one, 1600x900) to be kind of crappy when it comes to viewing skin tones. They're just sort of...flattened. My pictures that look good on my regular lcd (21.3" Samsung SyncMaster 213t) and my hd tv look weird and unnatural on my studio laptop. The pictures that look borderline-ok on my other monitors look terrible on my laptop because the skin tones are all messed up.

And I don't mean that like "I'm super picky about skin tones", I mean more like "anyone looking at the picture on the laptop lcd would notice it looks noticeably weird".

Naturally, there are a picture or 2 that actually looks better on the laptop screen - in one of them, there's a yellowish cast in the background when viewed on the camera lcd and my tv (it's also a common issue with pictures taken with my camera), but it's not there on the laptop screen. Unfortunately, since I need to be able to adjust the white balance on my laptop to look good on your average monitor, this is kind of a problem for me.

I really hate to wait a month for a new computer, but I was thinking that maybe the "17.3 Full HD (1080p) B+RG LED Display with TrueLife and Camera" would be better with colors? Or is there something wrong with my particular screen? The Studio with the same specs costs $1,139 online (as opposed to the $780 I paid at Best Buy) so it's a lot more money, but I could probably do it. I considered ordering a refurbished Precision m6400, but some of the reviews of the screen seemed kind of down (especially for such an expensive computer), plus it sounded like it's pretty huge to lug around.

HP Pavilion G6 Lockups :: Screen Distorts To White And Various Colors

Aug 3, 2013

My g6 has had many problems.  I really regret buying it.  First we had a freezing issue which hp resolved  I thought that was the end of it.  Now when my screen is open at a 90 degree angle to the keyboard Lines appear then the screen turns white with various colored lines running through.  When I open all the way it is fine or close to a 45 degree angle.  Is there a bad wire or connection? I have a prepaid box to mail to hp still.  I thought hp was better than this!

Sony :: Any ECO-screen Users Try To Reduce Gamma For Darker Colors

Jul 27, 2009

So I noticed having hopped on my FE790 (3-years old) with Hi-Color technology that the contrast is SOOOOOO much better than on my FW465.

The colors on me FE790 look so much more vibrant and it was rather painful to look at the same picture of a multicolored flower on the FW with the FE790 right by its side.

I decided to use the Catalyst Control Ceneter from ATI to try to tweak the settings

Also found on HP Envy drivers, SP63750.exe, Version 10.18.10.3304, dated November 8, 2013. Made no noticeable change.
 
In some cases, I could get the color acceptable for one mode (Viewing JPG file), but unacceptable for screen display.  I tried the high contrast mode, but made the screen really hard to follow with all those text boxes, like looking at a brick wall.
 
If I look at the same files with my (Win 7 Updated) Netbook mini 1101, all the graphics are really normal color and contrast. (Maybe the drivers got messed up when I had sent it on for repair to the HDD/MoBo). I haven't tried a total reset yet, it's always such a pain to do a master reset to see it is a hardware failing or not.
 
How to get my colors and contrast back to normal????

Dell :: Flashing Screen

May 16, 2010

Hey guys I have had my SXPS 1645 for almost 8 months now and I recently have had issues with it. Whenever I turn it on, it seems to boot fine (maybe a few more clicks then usual) and the boot up screen is tinted blue and the screen flashes. The OS seems to work fine as it logs in and everything, yet the screen tint and flashing remains. I assume its a problem with the RGBLED display, but I am not sure how exactly I can remedy this problem.

Dell Studio XPS 1647 :: Stuck At Splash Screen - Volume Down LED Flashing In PSA

Sep 10, 2014

Studio XPS 1647 laptop can't boot past POST and stuck at Dell splash screen with progress bar at ~80%. After holding down FN and pressing the power button, all three volume LEDS would flash twice, immediately followed by the volume UP and DOWN keys flashing, and then followed by just the Volume Down LED flashing.

Recently my Studio XPS 1647 has had overheat problems, and sometimes they would cause BSOD with broken screen images. The BSOD always came with bcode 116 error: this is apparently video card related. So last weekend I opened the case, removed the heat sink and the fan. The heat sink vent was completely blocked with a thick layer of dirt, so it's no wonder for overheating.  I cleaned up the heatsink vent and the fan, cleaned up the top of CPU chip and the top of GPU chip, reapplied thermal paste and put everything back together. After that, the machine couldn't pass the Dell splash screen on boot.  I've already checked the discussions here and followed suggestions on holding  down the power button to remove static, reseating the memory card etc., but they are of no use.

Finally I followed the instructions on starting up ePSA. I've tried it repeatedly, and every time the boot always stuck at the Dell splash screen with the progress bar at about 80% with or without applying ePSA. The SPA screen never came up if I held down FN+Power button. The difference between a generic boot and a PSA boot is that if I held down FN+Power button, all three volume LEDS would flash twice, immediately followed by the volume UP and DOWN keys flashing, and then followed by just the Volume Down LED flashing.

I've read from a few discussions talking about all three volume LEDS flashing would be a motherboard problem. But in my case it's three LEDs flashing twice, followed by volume UP and DOWN keys flashing once, and then followed by just the Volume Down LED flashing continuously. What this PSA blinking code means?

HP/Compaq :: DV4t-1000 Screen Flashing

Jan 26, 2010

my daughters DV4t began having video issues. The unit had been flawless for a year but after the unit had run for 5 to 10 minutes, every 4 or 5 seconds or so it would begin flashing a pencil thin green line horizontally across the entire bottom of the screen. The longer the unit ran the larger the line would become until it consumed the entire task bar. It demonstrated this behavior in normal mode, safe mode, and in BIOS mode. I tried everything I knew (drivers, BIOS, etc) to solve the problem without resolution.

Luckily we have an extended 3 year warranty with ADP. The unit is/was just over its initial 1 year warranty period (Christmas). The unit was returned for repair and HP replaced the lid, LCD, and associated parts. Im happy to say that in 8 days the unit came back with no issues and in flawless condition, but I must also say that its a bit disappointing that such a failure should occur so early in its well cared for life.

Nov 21, 2014

My laptop turn will not power up, circumstances I shut it down yesterday, packed it up, when I tried turning it on an hour later at school I couldn't get it to turn on. 

Is this a hardware issue that can be repaired?

Computer: Inspiron 7720-17R, i17Rse-3589BK, Intel i7-3630QM

A. I have checked the power chord it works on my older backup Inspiron17, I two power adaptors the work. the original Dell and an after market rocket fish. both work on my older model Inspiron 17.

B. Without the power chord: open the lid, press the power button, it does not turn on the computer on or light up, none of the indicator lights do not light up.

C. When I plug the power adaptor in to laptop:

1. the power indicator light on the laptop does not light up showing it is plugged in.

2. pressing the press the power button it does not turn light up or turn the computer on,  none of indicator lights do not light up.

3. (Original Dell power adaptor) the blue light at the end of the power chord goes out.

4. (Rockfish aftermarket power adaptor) the blue light on the adaptor goes from a solid blue to a blinking blue light.

Dell Inspiron 17R 7720 SE :: How To Reformat The HD

Feb 11, 2013

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...

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Battery Light Flashing

Jan 6, 2015

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. 

So for now I am trying to ignore it....

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).

Dell Inspiron 1526 :: No Boot Up - Flashing LED Light

Feb 3, 2013

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.

To recap the light code...Flash/Solid/Solid.
