Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Overheating Shut Down Computer
Feb 3, 2013
after reinstall, about 3 weeks ago when i played game i get my CPU and Mainboard to 90C. In 2 minutes, my computer shut down, i tried to start computer by power button, but it shut down in 1 sec... just flashing. After 1 minute i started computer..I upgraded BIOS, install recommended drivers also i have cooling pad which i using on HDDs.
OS: Windows 8 x64..I think it's HDD or Mainboard overheating or maybe CPU, because it has 85C too.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with a Intel Celeron Processor and the past year my cpu has been overheating and eventually causing my laptop to shutoff. This happens a lot quicker if playing graphics intensive games or playing youtube videos. I want a processor that can handle playing games and videos.
Also, one thing I was thinking was that maybe a fan stopped working that is causing the CPU to over heat but when I run a Dell diagnostic no errors come up about a fan not working, so I'm thinking I just need to upgrade.
Below is my System info:
System ModelInspiron 1525System TypeX86-based PCProcessorIntel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 560 @ 2.13GHz, 2128 Mhz, 1 Core(s), 1 Logical Processor(s) Socket 479 mPGA Motherboard model OU990C Chipset Intel GM965 BIOS Version/DateDell Inc. A16, 10/16/2008SMBIOS Version2.4
I have to upgrade the CPU in the Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop?
My computer is about a year old. When I turn it on, it will Go to the home screen & then it will go to a blue screen with a message that says a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to the computer. Technical Information: STOP: 0x0000007E .How can I fix this so I can get back on to use my computer?
Ive had my aspire 7720 for about a month now, and just recently i has started to overheat. i cant get 5 mins into a video without it overheating and turning off. I bought a cooling pad but it really hasnt made much difference.
I purchased my Acer in Dec of 2007. It's worked great except it's overheating problem (got a fan, no more problem). Last month it started intermitently not booting properly, and not coming out of sleep. I "fixed" the sleep problem by telling Vista not to put it to sleep any more. I typically shut it down when I'm finished with it so sleep wasn't an issue for me.
To ellaborate on the booting problem. If I attempt to boot it, the display turns on, and power button turns green, but neither the fan, nor Drive turn on, nor do any of the USB ports get power (I know this because I have an illuminated keyboard, which doesn't illuminate when this problem is occuring). I've waited for as long as an hour and it will never boot. If I hold down the power button for 4 seconds, it turns off. And if I boot it again it boots up properly. Doesn't matter how many times I reboot it after it always comes back up. I've never tested how much time passes before I can't boot it. I also tryed putting it in hibernation manually, that worked twice, the last time it wouldn't wake and had to be rebooted. I've done a check disk on it but all seems fine.
I'm having a problem with my Dell Vostro 3550 Core i5, completely shut down Windows, screen off completely, but the power light and the keyboard still light, until the battery is completely discharged.
I think the reason is the OS I'm using (Windows 8), I have changed the operating system (win7) but the problem is not fixed, I checked the hardware it still works fine
My computer (acer P653-V) is starting itself after shutting it down. Not right away - it takes some random time - sometime hours. In BIOS WAKE ON LAN is disabled. OS is windows 7 and at network adapter configuration - wake on magic packet and all of that is disabled.
Don't understand how is it possible? It is getting little bit creepy and disruptive already.
I bought a sony vaio laptop a little over 2 years ago. I never had a problem untill about 4 monthes ago. I got the "blue screen of death". It said something about the BIOS but would never stay on long enough for me to totaly read it. I went to Best Buy and asked if they had any ideas.
The guy said to contact Sony and get a recovery disk, so i did. I ran the cd but half way through it I got another blue screen that read:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time youve seen this stop error screen, follow these steps: Check to be sure you have adequate disk space .....
I have an Aspire M5-581T. In March of 2014, the battery suddenly stopped working. It would not charge, the unit would not boot from the battery, and if I unplugged the computer from the AC outlet it shut down completely.
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 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...
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 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.
i have encountered another bug aside from gpu boost issue, which is currently still unresolved. Fan speed control is not going idle on 7720 SE, even when temps are very low (below 40c)... on A12 BIOS, I have to restart my laptop to be able to switch to FAN Idle speed again. These are temps iam having and fans are still on.
I have Dell 7720 17r SE for almost a year now,I remember it as a fine gaming rig.I used to play Dead Island, Fallout New Vegas on max settings and resolutions,But ever since the latest A13 BIOS upgrade and the new 314.22 Nvidia Driver.
I noticed a significant drop in performance. Almost every game started to lag when the action becomes too "crowded" (lots of enemies etc).
And as for Dead island I noticed the performance drop after 20min of play.Not sure about overheating. (It seems like the usual temp if not maybe a Celsius hotter)
Noticed gaming performance drop after updating the bios and latest GPU driver???
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...
I love my new Inspiron 17R SE 7720. But I do seem to have some battery issues...
The battery simply never seems to charge to 100%. It charges to just 55-60% or so and never seems to get any higher. I've tried all the various power settings, including the various Dell special setting. Nothing seems to work.
It will be tomorrow before I can run the diagnostics I found in the support pages. But I'd like to make sure I'm not just missing something. Should it be charging when it's powered down but plugged in? I would think so, but still goes no higher than ~57%.
I've just reinstalled win7 Ultimate on my 7720 (09/2012) and have 2 problems: My BT mouse (Dicota BlueLight) stops working after a few minutes, and I have to remove it, and re-pair it several times before it will actually work. Each time I pair it I'm told it's working fine, and the driver is correct, but nothing happens. Ocassionally it will actually work, but only for 3-4 minutes before simply stopping again. The Bluetooth radio is showing as Generic Bluetooth Adapter in Device Manager.Also, in Device Manager I have a USB controller showing no Driver (Location: PCI bus 0, device 20, function 0) and I cannot find an appropriate solution anywhere.
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?
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.
When I turn my Dell Inspiron 7720 on, integrated webcam often does not work. Camera app in Windows 8 shows "there's a problem with a camera", other apps also show error messages or just a black screen.
After several resets the camera may start to work properly till the next reset. The camera is always shown in the Device Manager without errors and in the USBView I see that at least USB descriptors are correct. Moreover, after several disable/enable cycles in device manager the camera may start to work.
I've created two HDD partitions and installed Windows 7 Pro and Windows 8 Pro (both from original ISO files downloaded from MSDN). On clear Win 8 the camera shows the same problem, but on Win 7 it works properly.
There is no camera driver for Inspiron 7720 on the Dell web-site, thus I've used standard Microsoft driver on both Win 7 and Win 8.
I'm still not sure is it a hardware problem, because it is reproduced only with Windows 8. The computer was initially sold with Ubuntu, but Windows 8 is in the list of supported OS.
Camera IDs are: VID = 0C45 (Sonix), PID = 648D, REV = 2206.
