Preferred Solution: Got a white screen with in the top left corner "Please connect to the internet"

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.)

I have an issue with a white rectangular box appearing in the top left corner of my laptop screen.

It covers the icons behind it and renders them 'unclickable'.

Nothing happens if the box itself is clicked on.

It does not stay on top of other windows, just the desktop.

It appears after the laptop has been to sleep and on occasions, just seems to appear randomly.

I believe it may be a problem with Display Link drivers i use for a universal adapter for multiple monitors. I have asked around on display links forums but i am yet to find a solution (updated all drivers, uninstalled, re-installed, etc.), so i thought I would ask you guys if you have any ideas.

Other places i have found similar issues:
White box in desktop corner on Dynadock with Windo... - Toshiba Forums
White Box on Desktop with Dynadock - DisplayLink Forum

I have attached a screenshot of the issue.

any help would be appreciated.

Many Thanks

So I just got my new Dell studio xps 16" laptop on Saturday. I reinstalled using my own Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit disk and have had absolutely no problems.

However today, I noticed that there is a single bright white pixel in the top left corner of my screen exactly at the (0,0) position.

It seems to only show up on the desktop, because running pictures over the corner where it shows, it does not show up. I also have run several programs to check for dead pixels, and it does not show up.

I know it is not a dead pixel because it shows up in a screenshot which I have included.

My video card is the Radeon 4670 1GB.

I have found a few threads online where people have the same problems but none of them really gave any soloutions.

I have found that if I terminate the wdm.exe (Windows Desktop Manager) process it disappears. However, that stops my window peeking from working.

Another thing, it does not appear right after I log in, maybe about 10 seconds after windows has loaded.

Any ideas?

Update the ATI Catalyst Driver to the latest driver. Older versions of Catalyst have been known to cause this.

On a side note, Update your System Spec. It helps in trouble shooting.

Hello, my computer will freeze every 2 hours or so and I have to restart it by holding down on the power button.

Then when I restart it I get a black screen with white underscore in the top left corner. Or sometimes a screen that says no boot device available.

I can still start the computer by going to boot menu and choosing HD at the start of setup. But if I don't press f8 then my comp will not boot up.

I don't have a clue whats wrong with it. I had to reinstall vista but still the same problems. Please help.

English is not my native language, but hopefully I can explain this well enough despite not knowing the technical terms.

I have been googling like crazy trying to figure out what this can be, but to no avail. It started after the Windows 10 anniversary update and it might be related to either chrome cast or spotify, as after resetting laptop to factory settings I did not see this problem again initially until I started using these again. However, when the white square pops up can be completely unrelated to using these, and uninstalling Spotify did nothing.

The white square isn't always visible either, but is still there as a large unclickable area. If I right-click on it, a menu comes up that says back forward and reload, but clicking these does nothing. The only way to get rid of it is to restart, but it will come up again pretty soon. Any ideas?

My computer is about a year old now, built by me and my dad. Recently it's been having some issues though-- for a while I think it was over heating, causing it to reboot. At least I hope it was just overheating. One time when I booted up my computer it told me overclocking failed, which was odd because I hadn't messed with any of the settings (all still defaults).

But heres the major issue: If you boot it up, after the BIOS it'll give you a black screen with a blinking underscore up in the left corner. If you're quick enough you can get it to go into safe mode, etc. You can also choose which drive to boot from--- I found that it only gives you the black screen with certain drives. But, I did notice that its very slow when you have the "loading" screen for windows-- it'll slowly fade in and start loading, then it goes to a normal speed.

So I have this white pixel on my top left corner... It's not a dead pixel, but it's there. Did not seem to notice it before, but I am sure it was not there when I got the laptop. I'm not sure what might have caused this. It rotates with the screen. A full screen app like chrome covers it, but it is very visible when on the desktop. It's not my wallpaper. When I hover over it, I get a loading cursor. Nothing happens when I left or right-click on it. Does anyone have this as well?

Acer Travelmate 5542 turns on to a black screen with white line in the top left corner. I have changed all boot devices and still nothing works. will not boot t oCd drive USB or HDDProblem Started: Acer utility said the original hard drive was going bad and to back up all data. So i did. Then i went out and bought a new Toshiba 500gb HDD. I've installed probably 200 HDD into computers so i had no worries. I then went to boot to a USB drive with window 7 pro installed. However i couldnt get a boot menu to come up with F1-F12 and even ESC. So i then went into the BIOS and changed F12 to be the boot screen. ( Also while in the bios i was able to see the computer can see the new HDD and the Sandisk USB) So after i saved teh settings and restarted i was able to get the boot screen but when i select anything it goes to a black screen with a little white line in the upper left corner. I was able to remove the hard drive put it in a different computer and it worked fine to install Win 7. So i put it back into the laptop and still same problem. I cant boot to CD/DVD, USB, or HDD

I would like you to use the tutorial below to access the Command Prompt to rebuild the Boot Configuration Data.
The tutorial below includes a link to download a Windows 7 ISO image and instructions for burning this to a disc to create a bootable installation disc.  You will need to follow the instructions to step 7b, in the instructions there you would normally choose the Startup Repair from the System Recovery Options, but in this case you will choose Command Prompt.  You do not need to use these instruction any further than step 7b.  This will open the elevated command prompt, it will look similar to the image below.

Copy and paste the command below in the command prompt, then press Enter.
bootrec /rebuildbcd

Instructions for a Windows 7 Repair installation.
A Windows 7 Repair Installation will require a installation disc.
If you do not have a Windows 7 installation disc you can download a free legal ISO image of Windows 7 SP1 at  Windows 7 Forums.  You will need to download the same version of Windows 7 that you have installed,  This image is hosted by the Digital River store which is an official distribution partner of Microsoft.  This is a genuine untouched image which is safe to download. 
Attention:  If you do have a Windows installation disc, skip Part A and go to Part B, Step 1b.

I'm a network admin for about 30 users. About 10 of them are having a problem with any new document in Word (both XP and 2003). A small hollow square appears in the upper left corner. They're unable to delete it, and it freezes the "File" button on the Menu bar. Sometimes it freezes Word totally. They are able to print existing documents opened in Explorer. Very annoying! Any thoughts?

Hiya! and Welcome to TSG!

As nobody has an idea yet what might have cause the issue (as it is unusual), maybe uploading a screenshot would produce some ideas to resolve the problem.

I have a co-worker who's computer this morning just displayed a white screen with the words (in the upper left corner) "Please connect to the internet."
You can not get into task manager.  You can only restart or shut down.
I tried to boot into safe mode, but it's not really safe mode.  It says safe mode in the 4 corners of the screen, but has a standard-looking Windows logon screen in the middle with username already filled in, and waiting for you to fill in the password (I didn't).
It's a laptop running Win X Pro.
Where do I start ??

A:White Screen - "Please connect to the internet"

Based on what you said, you have successfully entered Safe Mode. So ask your friend to enter the password,
But it is probably a graphic card problem, so if your friend has a spare grahpic card, try it and see how it goes.

Ok, I have Windows XP Home Edition and I seriously doubt it has anything to do with this but, well.. the top left corner of my screen is like faded a small tint of green. it's not just one window, it's everywhere... desktop, any screen, any game, any program. Then, going down, it's sorta darker.. it's like fading into black but just barely. It's kinda blinking too, like an old flourescent light about ready to go out. Could this have something to do with my monitor? I checked to make sure all the plugs were in tight.

A:Top Left corner of screen...Fading?

Sounds like the degaussing circuit is going in the monitor and the screen is getting trashed. All color TV's and color monitors have these degaussing circuits built into them and you cannot replace them they are actually an integral part of the monitor. Save your bucks and purchase a new monitor.

Hey I just went through something very similar. I found that my SATA cable connecting the hard drive to the motherboard had failed. I replaced it with a new SATA cable, and it booted right up. Try the cable first if you have one lying around, plus its a cheap solution. If you replace the cable and it still won't boot up, it might be your hard drive. Seeing as how your machine is that old, it could fail at any time.

Do you get anything on the screen when you turn it on?

Hey guys I have a Song Vaio RBG-53 (I believe) with XP. I was using google images when I clicked on a picture and got a fake anti virus pop up. It wasn't the normal one I've seen quite a few times so I alt f4 closed it and immediately ran my AVG virus scan. That found nothing so I ran Malwarebytes which found 4 infected files. Two were in the registry and two were in my temporary internet files...I believe. Then I had it remove them and it said I needed to reboot to safely remove the files. I did that and when the computer started back up, it showed the initial Sony Vaio screen and then it goes straight into a black screen with a blinking cursor at the top left corner. The fan in my computer will run pretty loudly for about a minute and then slow back downto normal. At this point I'm not able to do anything. None of the F keys do anything. I tried ctrl alt del and that has no effect either. I can't get into safe mode or recovery console or anything like that. I've been researching google for the last hour on this and all the fixes involve just going into safe mode or using a repair cd, which I do not have. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks.

After i press no do not continue executing this script the rectangular screen stays in place and wont go anywhere, when i try to drag the screen across all i get is the Logitech logo.

I tried system recovery, antivirus scan, anti malware scan, and addware scan.

Unfortunately no result. Im out of ideas and i was hoping you guys would have some.

Hello! I was replacing the rear cover of the LCD. You know: the back cover with the Lenovo and ThinkPad logo on it. While moving all the antennas over, I found out that there are two magnets in the top left and right corner of the screen. The genuine rear cover with the same FRU as the original I ordered is a newer version I think, the magnets of the old version were less than a millimeter too high for this one. After a while I got sick sanding those magnets down, and to make things worse, I also lost one magnet while doing so. It's somewhere on my bench, but I can't find it.Anyway, I installed the screen without the magnets, and everything works just fine. I thought that they may be needed for standby, but I couldn't find anything like a sensor or something in the palmrest to which they 'magnet' too (if that's a word). Standby does work perfectly without these magnets. So my question is: does anyone know what these magnets are ment to do? I've added a picture of one of them below. Thanks in advance!

I don't know if this is the correct place to post this question. My daughter was using my MSI laptop and when she tried to start the computer all that came up was a black screen with the cursor in the upper left corner. She selected the restore option which came up because the other options would not do anything.

Is there any possible way to recover my files, pics, etc. or is it just gone now? I'm really upset because I had five years of photos of my grandchildren. =(

Any help at all is greatly appreciated.

I have seen this problem once before [posted in a different forum on this site] but it was a problem someone had on a laptop and it was for Windows XP.

I am using a desktop PC [Windows 7- HP] in a nutshell.

Anywho...The Problem.
I was minding my own business, listening to music and editing on a photoshop program, when suddenly my computer shut off on me. So, thinking that I might have accidentally pressed the power button with my leg, I restart it. Only to get a black screen with a little white flashing line at the top left corner of my screen.

I've heard people say to try to load it in Safe Mode. But I honestly don't know how to do that with Window's 7. I'm at a bit of a loss really. I've tried numerous things. I'm close to giving up...and so I'd really really REALLY appreciate any help given. I have a lot of files and etc...on this thing, and I really don't want to hear that there's nothing that can be done to retrieve them! :(

Device is a HP Pavillion x2 - Detacable Tablet/Laptop Combo

OS: Windows 10

I'm getting random right clicks in the top corner of the screen. These don't occur too frequently to make using the device impossible, but often enough to be irritating.

The phantom clicks occur at random points, sometimes when nothing is being touched whatsoever, sometimes whilst typing and sometimes whilst browsing the web etc.

This almost always occurs whilst using Chrome Browser, and is always a right click - bringing up the options to close the window, minimise, task manager etc.

I've tried toggling various mouse settings, and turning off SnapGo. I've also recalibrated the touchscreen.

If anyone has a fix for this, many thanks

Hi, I have an Acer laptop - Aspire 5315-2470 and when my son turned it on it goes to the Acer screen and then goes to black screen with cursor in the left hand corner.

I have tried to reboot in safemode but all I get is beeping noises. I also read in the manual on how to restore the computer back to day one we bought it, by holding ALT and F10 upon turning on . All I get is the same beeping noises.

This computer is only 1 year old , so if someone can give me any advice on how to fix this I would be very happy.

Thanks In Advance...

A:Vista with black screen and cursor in left corner

Look at your BIOS settings. The Acer screen may tell you how to access the BIOS (boot) settings with a function key - probably F2. Press that F2 or whatever it tells you when the Acer screen comes up. When the BIOS screen displays, make sure the "boot from" setting is your hard disk. If not, change it.

A:black screen with someting blinkin at top left corner

It's not booting to your Hard Drive. You can set the boot order in your BIOS. It is either F1, F2. Delete, F5, sometimes F10. HP usually uses F10, try that first.

Then set your boot order as follows:

CD/DVD first, Hard Drive second, then it does not matter after that.

Also, in your BIOS you will be able to see if your Hard Drive is being detected, if not, try unplugging the power and Data cables and plugging them back in, HP's are notorious for dropping the Hard Drive, you have to buy new SATA cables constantly. You may need to do this.

The Start button in lower-left corner of screen/desktop is not responding to left click.
Is there something an amateur can do?

A:Start button lower left corner of screen

Assuming RIGHT click at Start button still works ?..................

Run a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.

Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
sfc /scannow

> press Enter.
It will take quite sometime.
When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
1. No integrity violation.
2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
If the report is #3, use this method................
In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

> press Enter.
Again it will take some time.
When finished, it will give you a report.

Hi, I have a windows 7 Gateway computer. A few hours ago this problem started suddenly happening. Anytime I press the spacebar, a box in the top left corner of the screen opens up that has a list of the following options: "restore, move, size, minimize, maximize, new tab, reopen closed tab, task manager, close". I've already tried a full virus scan, rebooting the computer a few times, unplugging and replugging in the wireless keyboard and mouse, and checking to see if sticky keys/filter keys is enabled. From what I understand, the box coming up when I press the spacebar is the same box that's supposed to only come up when alt + space is clicked. This problem is making my computer pretty much unusable. Any ideas/suggestions?

A:Space bar opening small box in top left corner of screen?

As a first troubleshooting step, can you remove the wireless mouse & keyboard and connect wired ones? If the problem vanishes then you would have identified the culprit.

If the problem remains then it would seem to be a software issue. Possibly a setting got changed. Or possibly there was an update (Windows or Gateway or some app?) and it has caused some conflict. If it is a software issue you can try a System Restore but bear in mind that if an update caused the problem, it might happen again once the update is installed again.
