Q: Screen Display Boxes Sometimes White -

Win 8.1 Pro Update
Firefox 28.0
Win 8 Desktop Mode

Example attached is a screen clip from Google Map - the + and - (zoom ) not shown in the box.

User error is most likely the cause; but Personalization changes have not corrected the issue. The Win 7 box does not have this problem.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

After installing these drivers the display on the X1 Yoga remains black and is unsuable when docked or undocked; however external monitors are functional. Any ideas on what is causing this? The OneLink+ dock is also at the latest driver/firmware. Rolling back to the previous version resolved the issue, but I continue to still have the random black,white and/or gray blocks that randomly appear within the Office Suite. I was hoping the 21.20.16.4505 Display Drivers would help with this. Thanks

Any chance we could get your system specs, my crystal ball is in being repaired.

Does it do the same when you boot into safe mode (F8)?

Dear mods, I have noted a faint white dash (about 3 inches) in the middle of my P51 Screen which appeared a couple of days back. It looks somewhat like a stuck/dead pixel case. As possible solutions, I have tried the following : i. Battery Drain for 30 mins, and re-checkii. Disable/Enable the Graphic Card Provided that there are no easy solutions, I wish to know whether the replacement of screen of my product (which is still under warranty) will be covered or not? Regards,B.

hi sameerjha28,
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
?
You can try doing this:
-Turn off the computer.
-Unplug AC Adapter and remove the battery.
- Hold the Power button Down for at least 10-15 seconds, Then try reconnecting the AC adapter only and leave the battery out, turn it ON and see if it will make any difference.
- If it powered on Try it with the battery and check if it would still turn on properly.
?
If the above steps did not work Try an external monitor and check if it works there.
 
I would suggest Contact Lenovo Technical Support for service if the steps above did not help.

Hope this helps,

Hi there,  i was working on the computer yesterday when all of a sudden my screen turned black and white, and hasn't gone color except when it's locked. I can't find anything in the control panel to fix it, and my drivers are up to date. The one solution I saw offered for a similar issue was to put windows+ctrl+c, but that doesn't do anything for my screen. I've restarted it too, of course.  Help!

There is an 'external frame', 2cm  width from the screen edge, all around.In the external rectangular form, the white color seems yellow.  At contrary the center one has perfect white. As you can see here : Note: The problem is permanent. It also appears in the bios and in the display checking control. My laptop costed me almost $3k, I'm really disappointed. Is anyone experiencing the same problem ?

Hello,

My Sony Vaio recently started acting up. I've been using this laptop for a couple years now and works perfectly fine. All of a sudden, it started showing white line and blurry display whenever I turn on the computer. I have tried to "drain power battery" but didnt work. When I plug it with an external monitor, it works perfecly fine with that external monitor. I have tried to take out the RAM and clean it and put it back in, however doesn't seem to work. Is the RAM my problem? Maybe replacing a new RAM will fix it? I'm a student with a tight budget and cant afford to buy a new RAM without knowing if it work. I was wondering if you guys can come up with a solution. That would be appreciated. Thank you for your timing and have a nice day!

I have an IdeaPad 710S 13" non-touch laptop that I've had for a little over a month.  Sometimes when I touch the lid/screen - for example, to move the laptop closer or adjust the tilt of the lid, or when opening the lid - the display distorts. Sometimes it is just this one vertical section of the screen (first image below, though sometimes the black areas are white) and other times it is the entire screen with vertical gray lines/sections (second and third pictures below).  I've updated the display driver but that didn't help. I think it happens only(?) when there's some pressure against the screen/lid.  Sometimes closing the lid and opening it back up fixes the issue, but other times I have to reboot to fix it.  Ideas on what's wrong and how to fix it?

When I go to some web sites I see little white boxes with red X instead of the graphics, why is this and how can I correct this problem?
Thanks,
GVD60
 

A:little white boxes with red “X”

There are three things you should check:

1) On the View menu in IE, point to Encoding , and then click Western European (Windows).

2) Verify that Show Pictures has not been disabled:

- On the Tools menu, click Internet Options .
- Click the Advanced tab, and then verify that the Show Pictures check box is selected under Multimedia .
- Click OK .

3) Restore Default Associations for Graphics File Types :

Go to Folder Options/File Types, and make sure that the following file types are associated by default with Microsoft Internet Explorer (Iexplore.exe):
ART image (.art)
GIF image (.gfa, .gif)
JPEG image (.jfif, .jpe, .jpeg, .jpg)

It might also be a good idea to install the latest version of Microsoft Virtual Machine
And here are two MS articles:

Hi, newby here. I have Windows Vista home premium. When online, I'm getting the red x's in white boxes where little icons should be, under my user profile only.

Under my wife's profile (administrator), all the sites work fine.

Like on ebay or paypal, some buttons I can't even see to click, until I run the mouse cursor over the spot.

I'm a member on other forums. Some of the forums are worse than others when it comes to the # of icons screwed up. Like the "add image" and "wrap quotes", all of those options are red x's in white boxes.

I've tried googling this many times and tried to fix it myself, but I need specific help to narrow down the problem. Please help! I payed for Norton and some kind of PC boost from them(live guy takes over your computer and "cleans it up), hoping that would help, but no.

They did help me narrow it down to a problem with Internet explorer, maybe. They downloaded Mozilla Firefox, and when I get online with that everything works fine!?

I'm not the most computer literate person. I'm comfortable with Internet explorer (all my favorites and what-not) and don't want to lose that or swith to something else.

I did do a system restore to a point months before. It worked for a day or two, but that was it.

Thanks in advance for any help, Mike

A:little white boxes with red X

The white box with a red X means that there is an image supposed to be there, but it is not diplaying.

The reason can vary widely, from incorrectly written webpages, Internet servers that hold the image being off-line or down for maintenance or ad-blocking software on your own PC, or seetings on your own PC to prevent image disply, or ....

Perhaps if you post a link to one such site we could comment further.

About a month and a half ago, I was on TheJigsawPuzzle Site and this little white box with "Adobe Flash Player Settings" on it popped up with "TheJigsawPuzzles" asking to occupy 10 Kb of space on my computer. At that time they told me they already had 2 Kb (which I figured was a cookie.) I denied them that permission about 20 times and it started to block the jigsaw I was doing. I figured "what the heck, it`s only another 8 Kb!" and allowed them to do that. Other comanies asked the same thing but I ignored them.

hey, didn't know whether to put this in utilities or games. it's all game-related so i figured here would be best.

ok. *deep breath* lately i reinstalled windows XP Pro SP2, and i believe my CPU is slightly unstable, either that or my memory. either way my computer needs some new parts. but it runs fairly well. but when i reinstalled it, i gained an unsightly problem.

Upon installing xfire, i discovered that at least 3 parts of it were malfunctional. the ad bar at the top, the info sidebars of the chat windows with avatars, profile links, etc, and the screenshot window you get when you exit a game are ALL white. i can't even click them. and i soon discovered that my problems were not limited to xfire, and this confused me even further.

Steam suffers as well. I installed Steam today and everything works fine. i can see the buttons, tabs, and toolbars at the top, but the actual content in the window is white. nothing. it gets even better....

I own the game pack Star Wars: Best of PC (amazing game pack btw), and when i run the autorun, GUESS WHAT? IT'S BLANK!

this is bugging the crap out of me, because i don't know what's causing it. my main thoughts were Flash Player, Shockwave, or Javascript. nope. i installed them all(correctly as far as i'm aware) and it didn't help a wee bit. my antivirus is Avast! Antivirus, and i've reinstalled xfire 3 times with no luck.

Hello,
I continued to have loading problems with Half Life 2 using my WinXP OS but since I have a dual booting PC with 2 operating systems I switched to my WIN98 OS and succeeded in loading Half Life 2 as a single player game in off-line mode. So, I now have Half Life 2 running on my PC with WIN98 OS but I contantly see small white flashing boxes appearing during game play of Half Life 2. Any ideas what the problem is?

PC system specs: dual booting PC, Pentium 4 (2.0 GHz), MSI 845 Ultra-AR motherboard, 512 MB of RAM (pc2100), ATI Radeon 8500 LE 128 MB video card, Win98 on the 10 GB hard drive, and WinXP pro on the 120 GB hard drive.

As a guess i would say your gfx card doesn't support the game very well. does that card support DX9?, my son can run the demo with an FX5200 just fine on medium settings.

Every morning (This is not exaggeration) I do mean EVERY MORNING, I get Event ID 1002 DHCP-Client that says:

"The IP address lease 192.168.x.x for the Network Card with network address 0xE0CB4E2F7281 has been denied by the DHCP server 192.168.x.x (The DHCP Server sent a DHCPNACK message")

When this happens all my icons on the desktop turn to blank white boxes and then 1 by 1 change back to their correct icon picture.

How can I stop the desktop icons from change to white then back to normal? I have already tried renaming the icon cache to OLD and restarting. Didn't work/Problem still happens. Half my desktop is filled with shortcuts and icons and it really distracting/annoying when they all go white and back to normal.

Hi
I am new on here so not sure which forum will best help me. I used a keyboard shortcut to change the display on my sony vaio laptop. Found it on a web forum. It was used to make viewing video downloads better quality.
it was something like cntrl upper case and f12 and then you pressed the same keys to revert back to original display. I have now forgotten the combination and my display is stuck in a lower resolution and has a purple and white display on my desktop.
cntrl alt and f12 just brings ups the intel graphics box. can anyone help? I have been told I will need to do a refresh if I cant find the answer and I want to avoid this.

Hello. This laptop is almost a year old (still under warranty). It was in HP service center and their conclusion is that everything is OK with laptop because they could not reproduce error with their HDD and their OS (that is what they actually said). Problem is with display. From time to time (not always) thin white line is shown on top of blue or gradiant blue or similar color (I'm attaching links to photos because they are too large to upload - if you look closely at photos, you will notice it on blue color): Photo 1Photo 2 Now, I picked up laptop from service last week and my warranty is valid for 2 more weeks or something like that. Any suggestions what to do? It seems that HP Service Center (MR Servis d.o.o., Zagreb, Croatia, Europe) doesn't care or they are not capable to properly test laptop. I paid for laptop almost 1.000,00? and month or two after warranty goes out I will have broken laptop? Thanx in advance,Stanislav Vlasic

Plugged a new gpu and installed the latest drivers but I am getting small boxes on my screen. They are "ghost images" of what was on my screen before, and they multiply if I scroll up of down. Also, the same thing happened when I put my old card in the same system. That card was a GeForce 7600. Here are some screen shots of what it looks like.and a video (sorry about the quality)My specs are: CPU: AMD Athlon™ 64 Processor 4000+Motherboard: ASUSTeK (A8N5X)Mem: 1023mb DDR400HDD: 300gb (WDC WD3200AAKS-75L9A0)Video: NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT 1GB DDR3Sound: Creative Audigy Audio Processor (WDM)OS: Microsoft Windows XP SP3(2600)Monitor: SyncMaster 940BW/199BW/941BW, SyncMaster Magic CX915BW(Digital)ISP: Time WarnerPower Supply: 350WI have tried to re-install the drivers and rolled them back as well. I was thinking my psu may be too weak for both cards, but it meets the minimum requirements for the gpu. Also, I may need more RAM, so that might be the problem. Any other thoughts on what it is or what I should do?

It looks like your mouse cursors are all messed up.

Do you use custom mouse cursors?

I have the same problem. When turning on the laptop screen goes to white, I can hear windows starting but cannot see anything. I connected it to an external monitor, which will only display once windows has loaded. I then took the whole laptop apart and discovered the LCD cable was frayed due to a faulty laptop hinge. I replaced the cable and it was the same, just white. The problem I think is with the motherboard and the intergrated video card. Upon taking the whole thing apart I noticed that where the video card plugs in is right where the heat sink is and the cooling fan which gets exceptional hot. I figure it has fried the board to the extend the monitor will not work where it is plugged in, but the external monitor will work but only when windows boots. So sad to say because of the the heat this laptop puts off and if you have it sitting on your lap or bed or anywhere else that it cannot cool properly it has over heated and you will have to get a new motherboard.

A:Laptop screen starts up white and stays white

"I connected it to an external monitor, which will only display once windows has loaded"... This is normal behavior because the video signal to the external monitor is not sent until Windows loads. If you can see normal video, the motherboard video chip is good

Computer covers whole screen with either white, or white with black, and blue stripes. Multiple times a day.?
This computer was bought in 2005, (HP Media Center PC). Within the second week this freezing(it freezes, and the screen has a white or white with black and blue stipes) occured( yes second week, my brother was uninformed and thought it was normal and didnt return it. It happened often enough as to save anything you were working on every ten to twenty minutes on a bad day. It settled and slowly became less of a problem, then stoped. One day he got a virus and had to restore the computer, the freezing started up again. same as last time, it settled then stoped, a month later, i recieved this computer as a hand me down, as my brother went to college and got a MAC. That was in mid summer of 2008, a week and a half ago, i got a huge virus, i restored my computer, and the freezing started up again, after not doing it once for over a year. It has gotten as bad as freezing every 30 minutes some nights. And earlier today it froze, i turned off and on my computer, went down stairs, and when i came back it was frozen again. I had not even used and program. Please help if you have any idea whats wrong!
Things to keep in mind...
-It only happened after the computer was restored, or bought(ish)
-Its not a normal freeze where you see the programs on the screen still, the screen goes completely white, or white with black and blue stripes.
-4 years old

Thanks!

A:Screen Freezes and turns white or white with stripes

Then maybe it isn't freezing at all. Maybe there's a problem with your monitor, vga cable, or video card.

Try a different monitor/cable and see if that changes anything. If it doesn't, then try reseating the video card--if any--and if that doesn't work I suggest getting a cheap one from someone's old pc at least to test with.

Installing a new video card can be complicated, but google search for a guide or follow the setup instructions for the video card to the letter and you'll have no problems.
