White flashing screen?

Q: White flashing screen?

Hi I have a lenovo g500 laptop running windows 10. It has recently started giving me a white flashing screen with bits of grey and vertical lines. It stays on and does not flicker.
I have to turn off the laptop to get the screen back to normal. Moving the screen back and forth doesn't influence it in anyway and all display drivers are up to date.
I have ran a hardware scan (with the lenovo solution center) on the graphics chip and it passed.
The graphics chip is an intel hd 4000.
What could be causing such an issue?
Cheers

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A:flashing white screen

Welcome elfinwood.

Just to clarify... It sounds as if you have been playing Second Life with your computer for a while, which has always worked fine, until recently, where you have this flashing screen problem? When does this problem occur? Is it after playing the game for a while or as soon as you start the game? Or does it start as soon as your turn on the computer?

If it is when you start the game, does it do it when you start other games (games that require good use of the graphics card/system)?

> When was the last time you updated your drivers?
> Have you changed anything before this started to occur, such as installing new updates?

Hi, I've been having this problem. When I start my computer, the whole screen is white for awhile, then it turns black. There is no windows startup logo or my computer brand logo. Then my screen starts flashing and the power button on my monitor blinks and the monitor makes TOK sounds every 2 seconds and then the screen flashes and starts doing that over and over until it decides to make the whole screen white and stay like that. Here's what it looks like: 
 
I tried manually restarting my computer by holding the power button and after a few tries, sometimes, if I'm lucky, it will let me login and then everything is fine.
 
Today, I went through this process and today I tried turning off the monitor when the screen was white. It restarted and black flashing but made the screen turn white faster. I just kept trying, turning the monitor off and on again because I didn't know what to do. Then I was so lucky, the login page for windows came up and I was able to login; now everything is normal. I can go online and everything without any problems until I shut down my computer and start it up again. Then it's back to square one.
 
Can anyone help me fix this problem? Should I buy a new monitor? I've had this one for a few years, but my desktop is new; It's one year old in 3 days. (April. 4)
 
Thanks in advance!

I'm sorry for the lack of any technical terms used to describe this but I'm a complete novice with computers.

I was watching a video when some warning messages popped up saying something like harmful stuffs trying to access your computer, then it restarted. Now it starts up, goes to the motherboard thing, goes past that then hits a black screen with a little white line flashing in the top left corner.

I've tried to use F8 to enter the safe mode start up but when I press F8 it comes up with

'PLEASE SELECT BOOT DEVICE

SATA:3M-STM3250318AS
CDROM:3S-TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S22'

I tried the SATA option twice, first time the white line vanished so it was just a black screen and then it restarted. Second time it just went back to the screen with the white flashing line.

Any help in sorting this out would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure how else to describe it. I started up my computer this morning and when it loaded the login screen it started rapidly flickering in white with very small pink pixels visible all over the screen. The login screen was not visible at all, the screen just turned white. I could see my mouse pointer and I could move it around, so the computer didn't freeze or anything. I then performed a hard reboot and now everything is back to normal. Never seen anything like this before, and I'm running on a clean install of Windows 10 Home x64. This is not a problem with my monitor as I reconnected all cables during this. My computer itself is pretty much new, less than a year old.

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 and whenever I boot up the computer, either from sleep mode of from when it's off, I get a flashing white screen. The screen has vertical zig-zag lines on it that are spaced out and it just keeps flashing. I have to turn my computer on and off enough times for it to finally boot up properly. 
I've had the computer for a little over a year it has an Intel graphics card. I tried to restore to an older system image, but I have no system images on my computer. Would resetting the computer help? If so, how do I preserve Microsoft Office on my computer?
This is a really frustrating and time consuming issue, and Dell has really *** customer support, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

Today I started up my pc and after the BIOS screen (the place where you can press f8-f11 for various options) it went to a black screen with a blinking underscore in the upper left corner and stayed there indefinitely. It did this even after reboot.

I tried using the diagnostic tool and everything it tested passed (including HDD). I did this test twice and the same results were produced.

I also googled for similar problems (one topic mentioned that the op disassembling his computer and physically tapping a chip on the motherboard caused it to work) but I have no experience with taking apart my computer and i do not want to break it accidentally. I did however chance upon a topic advising him to do a CMOS reset which apparently helped that op, so i looked through the various options on the BIOS page. There was one option (f10 I think) mentioning CMOS on its fourth sub-window, so i pressed the reset option but I'm mot entirely sure if I used the right function.

I uninstalled kaspersky pure and replaced kaspersky pure for kaspersky anti-virus yesterday, dont know if this was the cause.

I am using windows 7 64 bit.

Hi sherm12789 and welcome to TSF

Start up your computer by either tapping the F1, F2, F4, F6, F8, F10, F11, F12, or Delete keys to access the systems BIOS. For the exact information on what key to start up the System BIOS refer back to Original Manufacturer System Documentation.

After getting into the BIOS, look for a page that would have something like, eg. PC Health Screen or System Monitoring Page. When you have found a page similar to this post back what the BIOS says for your temperatures, voltages, and fan speeds.

This recently started happening. Sometimes when I boot my computer, it displays a white screen with colorful pixels scattered across the screen. It starts by constantly flashing from the white screen to black. Eventually, it stops at the white screen. I can still see my mouse pointer though and move it around. It's happened three times now and it only happens every few boots. I have to hit the reset button on my case to get out of it. Any idea? Thanks.
 
Here's a picture of the white screen: http://i.imgur.com/mPLw38I.jpg
 
OS: Windows 10
MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte 970A-DS3P
CPU: AMD FX 8320
GPU: EVGA GTX 970 FTW
 
I have also attached the event error log.
 
EDIT: I think the problem has to do with the constant spamming of this in the logs:
"Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered."
 
So GPU drivers or GPU failure? :\
 
By the way, this only happens on SOME OS BOOTS. Games/video run fine without crashing if the OS boots up properly.

I have a Dell Inspiron with Windows 2000 and it has been on the brink for a while. Two nights ago it told me I needed to run a Windows Update. I have never done that before but I clicked ok. Then when I tried to restart the computer - blue screen - memory available is less than memory installed - something like that. Tried to restart to last known working configuration - did not work. Tried to restart in safe mode - screen ran a list of code lines and then went back to the same blue screen memory message. Then I ran a diagnostic and there was a DST short test failure. While I was looking up DST failure I turned to look at my computer, with the diagnostic still running, and all of a sudden the screen was totally white, then green, then red (not in that exact order). I screamed and turned off the computer. Can anyone help me turn it on for at least long enough to back up some files that have been created since my last back up??? Thanks.

Google for and download Hirens BootCD which includes a number of tools and a stripped down version of XP called MiniXP. That should enable you to pull your files out and prepare the hard disk for a fresh installation - if you have an XP CD.

Hi Everyone!

I just joined and hopefully I can be of some help for others, but for starters I need to ask for help for myself! Before posting this, I did a search of the forums here but did not find anything identical to my issue.

I have a 10-month old Acer 5100 notebook that will no longer start Windows Vista (Home Premium if that matters).

A few nights ago I noticed the machine was at the "Windows did not shut down properly" screen (black background/white text). Unfortunately I was not around the machine when it got into this mode. The screen showed a list of 5 or less choices - I think the default highlighted choice was to let Windows search the hard disk for errors. I chose this but it didn't seem to start after watching it for several minutes. So being the impatient sort, I rebooted the PC and the same black screen with choices displayed. This time I selected 'Start Windows Normally' but when the system came back up it ends at the same screen again. (I believe the "Windows did not shut down properly" screen I was seeing was not the normal one I've always seen, but a different one with less choices, if that makes sense)

So I said forget this, I have a backup. I tried restoring a backup of the hard drive I made with Acronis True Image (I booted off the True Image CD). I chose to only restore just the C: partition. Both times I tried, it gets to over 50% complete then there's a message about the image being corrupt.

Hi Hajira,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I am sorry to hear that you are facing the issue with display as there are white circles.
 
Try to update the display drivers and check for the issue.  
 
Connect to the external monitor and check if there are circles in the monitor.
 
As you have also mentioned about the cursor try to reduce the sensitivity and update the touchpad drivers.
 
Hope this helps! Do post us back for further queries.

Hi, I'm having an issue with most of my games. For some unknown reason the programs will flash white and say that they are not responding, this only seems to happen if I use my mouse and click on the actual window. Considering most of the games this happens with require the mouse to use, this can get really irritating.

Another problem, which I'm sure this is related to the flashing windows, is when I click out of a game. It doesn't show up, it will still be in the taskbar but I will be unable to play it.

This problem doesn't work with any other programs (i.e. Google Chrome, Steam).

If anyone has a solution for this, that would be brilliant!

My S10-3t (new almost exactly a year ago) is not booting. Please note that when I got it I upgraded the RAM to 2gb and the Hard Drive to a 500gb drive that has not failed me. I am using Linux, and threw out all the backup stuff, so that is not an option. The problem is that the battery indicator light is flashing orange and white at the same time (a mix of both colors), and it does this when the battery is in and out. The AC adapter works fine, since the netbook is getting power from it when the battery is out. If you need more info then tell me and I will provide it. TL;DR: The computer does not boot and my battery indicator light is flashing two colors at the same time, no matter if the battery is in or not. The problem is not with the AC adapter. EDIT: Update below.

Hello, Please try hard reset first :  Shut down the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold  down the Power button for a full minute.  Plug in the AC Adapter ( leave the battery out for the moment ) and see if the notebook will start.  You might want to take a look at this document: Battery Does not Power Notebook or Hold a Charge. It suggests troubleshooting steps to determine if the problem is the battery, the power supply, or the system board.You might find the answer to your battery/power issue as you work through the steps in that HP support article. Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

Hi,

Apologies if this question has been answered elsewhere.

I have a Dell GX Piece of $H!t and when I boot it up all I get is a flashing white line in the top left hand corner. I don't see a BIOS screen. Am happy to install linux on it - just need to get to the BIOS screen so I can boot up off a USB drive.

Any suggestions gratefully received!

Thanks,

Ross

My battery light is flashing four times orange then once white.  It's showing "54% available (plugged in, not charging)".  When I remove the power supply the light keeps flashing and the computer enters power save mode like normal.
I thought my issue was with the batter so I bought a new one.  I switched them out and the battery light stays solid white and shows "63% available (plugged in, charging), but I left it for four hours and didn't charge at all.  And on this battery whenever I remove the power supply the computer immediately dies.
What is my issue and how do I fix it?

A:XPS L502X Battery light flashing orange/white

Hi THEMACKATTACK90,
Thank you for writing to Dell Community Forum.
Please update the BIOS to the latest version from our Dell Support Site.
Check in BIOS if the adapter or battery is recognized.
Check if the light on the adapter stays on.
Please private message us the service tag of the system along with your email id.
(Note: please don't mention the service tag or email id on the public forum as it contains your personal information).

In random locations, at random times, my screen will flicker white lines across it with varying frequency. It because most frequent when at high RAM usage, just turned on, or charging at full battery for awhile. I tried sending it back once for repairs, but after a two month wait, it failed. I requested another repair, but tomorrow being my deadline, I believe I am unable to send it back once more. I attempted to contact warranty support, but after filling in my serial number thousands of times, the site believes I am possession of a Vibe series C phone. Is there any way I can fix this issue? Thanks in advance.

A:Lenovo y50-70 thin flashing horizontal white lines...

Hi One3 , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
This solution may help from this article :

Update BIOS to V3.03 9ECN43WW (or later version). http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS100998
Update the Intel VGA driver.
Change the Panel Self-Refresh setting to ?disable? in the Intel HD Graphics control panel. (some versions do not have Panel Self-Refresh setting, skip this step.)

If the issue persists, hardware defective is highly detected. Please contact Lenovo local support center for hardware troubleshoot.
 
If the serial number would show mismatch from the website,  verify again from the label or use the auto detect feature but if that fails , provide a direct call to tech support . You may have the issue also documented that this behavior is an issue you noticed before warranty expires specially if the above solution did not work.

Wonder if anyone can help. My Windows 7 machine was updating to Windows 10. It it to 100% and then rebooted. It starts up with a white cursor in the top left hand corner then reboots and does it again. I've tried f12 to recovery mode but that just restarts and does it again. I've checked the hard disk in bios and it's still showing it as a boot device. F2 and f12 seem the only keys to do anything. Even a USB bootable image of Windows 7 to try and recover the Windows partition is booting... Any help would be most appreciated.

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.

Any way to stop it?

A:Inspiron 1545 Power Light Constantly Flashing 4 Red then White

Hi
Are you able to turn on the system ?
I believe by power light you meant the battery charging indicator.
If you are able to load into OS, Update your BIOS.
Here is the link to BIOS for your system.
