Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Get Black Screen When System Loads Indicating A Previous Incorrect Shutdown
Feb 7, 2013
Using Windows 7 on an Inspiron N5110. Get a black screen when system loads indicating a previous incorrect shutdown, with the options to load Safe or Normal. But the system will not accept any of these options, as a matter of act, the system will not accept anything.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 and have had this laptop for 3 or more years. Last night I shut off my laptop normally but today, upon booting, the screen just turns black and nothing else.When starting up, the Dell logo still loads and the screen still shows "safe mode or start up regularly."
Upon choosing either option, the screen loads for awhile then fades into black. Nothing else happens after.I would atleast like to know how to save my files within the laptop. [Atleast to start it up once more to save all the files to a USB and not lose them forever..]
I have inspiron N5110 . I recently upgraded my bios version from A9 to A11(to solve the Win 8 black screen problem) . But unfortunately the battery timing is reduced to 2 hours only . before that it was nearly 4 hours. I switched back to windows 7 and i want to get that bios version back..
Every time I start up my computer, it flashes the Dell logo loading screen, and then displays this message on a black screen:Intel UNDI, PXE-2.1 (build 083) Copyright (C) 1997-2000 Intel Corporation.

I ran the diagnostics but shows that everything is fine.
I tried hitting f8 to get into safe mode but again nothing.
I have install windows 8.1 Enterprise in Dell n5110 its giving me black screen ,I tried open in safe mode , and uninstall display driver and again restart , i got the login screen after login screen appear for 5 miniutes after 5 min again it goes BLACK ,
My laptop is Dell N5110 (Inspiron 15R), it suddenly shutdown when I try to type on the keyboard. Then I tried more and more to open it again, but it didn't work. After a while, I opened it, and when I tried to write something again, it suddenly shutdown, and so on.
I can't turn off my laptop. Widnows shuts down, the hard drive LED doesn't blink, just the power LED and I can hear the fan from time to time and it just hangs there. So, all I can do is hold the power button and force it to shut down. Even more weird is the fact that I can restart the computer. This started about a month ago and I've tried everything I could think of... to no avail.Here's my system info:
Computer Type ACPI x64-based PC (Mobile) Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate OS Service Pack Service Pack 1
CPU Type Mobile DualCore Intel Core i3-2330M, 2200 MHz (22 x 100) Motherboard Name Dell Inspiron N5110
Motherboard Chipset Intel Cougar Point HM67, Intel Sandy Bridge System Memory 8098 MB (DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM)
Video Adapter Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 (2108 MB) Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M (1048384 KB)
Here's what I did:
1) I suspected a Windows update, so I tried to restore to a previous point. 2) Didn't want to reinstall Windows, so I tried to boot from the Windows CD and shut it down from there. 3) I tried to let it hang after the shutdown. This brought up a BSOD two times. It was DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. 4) Then I started suspecting the BIOS. Updated to A13 (the latest version for my model) 5) Resetting the BIOS to default settings. 6) Updated all drivers to the latest. 7) Restored the MBR. (Windows repair said that it couldn't find my Windows installation, even though I was able to boot) 8) Tried to shut down without the battery. 9) Tried to shut down without the power adapter. 10) Ran all Dell support center tests. The short ones, though. No problems were found.
My laptop is still under warranty, so I won't open it, but I'd like to know that I have tried everything before I contact the support center.My job is on my laptop. I don't have a PC, so if I take it to support, I won't be able to work.
I have bought my new laptop 3 months ago.My laptop was running fine and I happily played counter strike on it.After some days while listening songs. My laptops speakers stops working than I go to the dell warranty claim centre they took my pc and change the speaker of my laptop and give me back after one week but after getting my pc back I am trying to play the counter strike game but when I run the counter strike game my laptop shutdown immediately. My laptop is dell core i5 n5110 with 4 gb ram and 1 gb nvidia graphics card.
System Will not Wake Up from Sleep Mode / power button continues to glow even when shutdown option is selected Motherboard failure due to any internal short circuit could be the reason of this technical glitch...
I have a hp envy m7j010dx with windows 8.1. it came preinstalled (windows 8) on a 1 tb hdd. I recently purchased a samsung 840 pro 250 gb ssd that i wouold like to make the system drive and make the original drive my data drive. confused on how to do so. want it fresh not clone. all i can find is restore or backup stuff. i just want to put the original computer on the new drive.
I inadvertently upgraded to Windows 8.1 which I had been trying to avoid doing and don't know how it happened as I had continually knocked back prompts to upgrade. I originally did upgrade to 8.1 last year and had such major graphics issues I eventually restored factory settings to get back to Windows 8 which solved all the issues. Now the same problems are happening i.e. breaking up of the screen with loads of horizontal lines running across it.
I downloaded all the updated drivers I could from the Dell site but the graphics driver and video driver would not work and I kept getting the message that the laptop was not compatible with the downloads. It is a Dell Inspiron 3520 and the recommended drivers just will not install. I don't want to have to go through all the hassle of restoring factory settings again. I am sure the problem is with these 2 drivers mainly the NDJN4 video driver.
getting the password for a Dell N5110. A friend of mine was having display problems so we tried resetting factory defaults and now we are completely locked out of using the computer.I read on some previous posts of DELL users saying message me the details, with proof of ownership however the posts were a little dated, is this still a viable option, and in which case who do I need to message?
I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 15R N5110 which consists of a nVidia GT525M graphics card (as per the configuration).But when I check the system specs under system rating -> details; it is showing only Intel HD graphics with a dedicated graphics memory of 64MB and complete shared graphics memory of 1696MB. My card of 1GB is not getting displayed.
But, in device manager, I can see my nVidia card.how do I enable my graphics card? Is there any problem only with my system? How can I see the nVidia card in the system specs?
I have had my Dell inspiron 1420 for at least 2 years now..The problem last year: While I am not giving input to the laptop, but I am connected to the internet, and firewall is on... The top left LED light will suddenly flash blue and a indicating sound, I can only describe as "do-doop" occur simultaneously. This would happen several times before (completely without my doing anything on the computer) the dell livecam prompter would pop up. I have NEVER used my webcam... so why it would start up automatically is beyond me.
The problem now is the same light flashes and the same sound occurs, repeatedly and at an inconsistent frequency. The only difference this time, is the dell livecam thing has not popped up, So I don't know that the indication is related. The sound+ flashing will happen one minute, and again maybe 10 minutes later. Then it will happen one minute, and again 30 seconds later. Then happen once, and happen again 2 minutes later. (its very sparatic).This time, I went into task manager and ended the "livecam automatic startup" process, but that did not end the problem.
What this is being caused by or how to make it stop. (I watch low-quality lectures for class on my laptop on full volume, so this sound is super loud and way too often to live with.)
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've dell Inspiron N5110 and I'm using it since past 3 and half years. In 2013, base of the laptop was broken and I had to replace it with a new one though there was no problem in hardware at all. Soon after the dell representative installed the new base and left my house I was facing a weird problem. When I power on the laptop, my screen gives a mild flash but does not start (6 out of 10 times, not always), but I can hear windows start up sound in the back ground. I use to press power button again to lock or stand by the laptop and then move my mouse. After performing this I can see the screen glows and log on screen shows up.
I was using my laptop like this for past 1.5 years as pressing a power button was no big deal. Today on the eve of new year, I saw my trick does not work any more. I was not able to start my screen even after repetitive attempts. But I remember I used it last night, display was really fine.
I am very upset that my expensive Dell laptop has stopped working when it's less than 2 years old. When I turn it on it beeps 8 times and does this over and over Nothing comes up on screen just black? A friend said I need a new board thing as video card is on that.
I have a compaq presario CQ61-420US with similar problems below, except I have a black screen, fan turns blinking lights are the same (num lock and cap lock) but they are flashing continuously every second or 2. I have tried the hard reset with the ram fix, connecting an external monitor, changing the battery, and the power adapter to no avail. I also used compressed air on the vents just in case was stuffed with dust since it will overheat and may cause problems, but nothing.
One option I can think of is purchasing a new MotherBoard, but I'm trying anything else before that.
I have a dell inspiron n5110 laptop that was recently slammed to the floor because of some crazy incident. Anyways, the screen shattered so i replaced the screen and attached the cables properly. The laptop powers on, but no display on the screen what so ever, its completely black.
I did the take out the battery and power cord, held power down for 60 sec. that was a no go
I don't know what could be the problem. I even hooked the laptop via hdmi to my tv and it works fine on the tv so i know the laptop is working. Also my warranty expired so that won't do. would really like to resolve this issue without forking over a couple hundred bucks.
My puppy jumped on my lap when I was on the computer and the screen went from horizontal to vertical. A quick fix is changing the screen projector mode from 'not connected' to 'extended'. Unfortunately I cannot use dual screen and have lost my mouse more then once...
I bought inspiron N5110 laptop from about 8 months from middle east. From 5 months when I came to USA the laptop stop working. I tried to send it to dell as it was still in the warranty but they refused to take it because it had not an international warranty. I sent it to a technician in USA who told me that the motherboard is overheated. I got a motherboard that has the same part number and install it in the laptop.
The problem is that when I power it on some times the screen not display anything although it logs in windows as I hear the sound, and sometimes it log to windows and after about 15 min the screen stop working.
I do not know why it do this is this a problem in the new motherboard? or in the CPU?
I've just dropped my laptop (dell inspirion n5110) while it was on (about a feet) and now it's beeping. I also noticed that the bottom left of the screen disattached, but I was able to put it back in. I understand that 8 beeps mean LCD failure. I've tried to do the test run by pressing "D" but nothing shows up, only a white screen.
