I have a white screen upon startup. I was able to use my laptop when plugging the VGA cable in the back to an external monitor but that only works with a few tries.
I notice if i put my laptop on sleep for less than 2 hours the external monitor works.
Any time longer and I have to start the process of removing and inserting the plug and playing with my external monitor so it can detect a signal, it usually takes a few tries and a few minutes.
The white screen is always on my laptop throughout the process and even when the external monitor works.
Just determining if i should replace me screen or ribbon video cable or check my connection to my vga cable or could it be my motherboard.

any help or direction is appreciated.
Thank you!

A:Dell Inspiron 15R N5110 screen problem - white screen & external monitor works if I jiggle the plug

Hi FMIT,
We need to isolate if the issue is with the LCD or the video card. So, turn off the system - press and hold the "d" + power key to turn it back on - this should initiate the LCD built in self test. You should see a screen with solid changing colors and the system would beep. If you see this - the LCD is fine. If you do not see the colors changing - then repeat the step again - but this time - swivel the LCD back and forth and see if there is any display. If the display is intermittent then the LCD cable needs reseating/replacing.
Also, turn off the system and press and hold the "fn" key + power button to turn it back on - wait for a few minutes. If you do not see any display, the system should start beeping. Count the number of beeps per cycle. At any point if you see the screen with solid colors changing - the LCD is fine. The issue is with the video card/motherboard. If do not see the changing colors - then we would suspect the LCD.
Test the system with another VGA cable for the external monitor.
If the system is under warranty, then please send me the service tag of the system and your contact details through a private conversation. Or you could use twitter - @dellcares - we can DM through twitter and help you fix the issue.
Keep us updated.

A:why does my screen go dim when i plug in the ac adapter?

Check your power settings. Right click on an empty spot on you desktop, click on screen saver, click on change power settings, change the plan and then advanced settings. You can set the brightness intensity there and a lot of other things that you want to happen when plugged in and not plugged in.

When I plug in for charging battery then screen goes black? when I set the  power plan at HP reccommended)But  I set the power plan at high performance then this one is OK.Please advise me to resolve

A:laptop screen goes black when plug in for charging battery

Did you mean to say that it goes black for a second and then returns to normal? Your notebook sounds like one with switchable graphics.  My HP product loan Envy17-3002ea does that because I have the graphics power options set to automatically switch to the energy saving GPU when on battery.  If you don't want that to happen, just take the tick mark out of the box that say automatically switch. Then it will stay in high powered GPU all of the time, but will always use more battery power when on battery. This is a decision that only you can make.    regards,erico

Hi there, I have a Lenovo Flex 3-1580 Laptop. Last week, this just started happening, when I plug in the power adapter, the screen brightness goes up and down by itself for about a minute or two and then stops. The laptop doesn?t charge the battery. I tried a different power adapter and cable but did the same thing. Is this a battery issue or a laptop hardware issue?

The battery is okay is just that it turns low power even though it's more than half full.. then it revert back to normal.. it occurs a lot of times =(Next is when i browse mozilla, half of the screen went white.. the other half looks normal.. I refreshed the page, most of the page looks normal but some still white...

Hi...I have searched for two days on your website and had no luck. I have an HP laptop:

Windows 7 OS
BIOS Version: F.13
Processor Type: AMD Sempron M120
Processor Speed: 2100 MHz

Start-up test..it failed and short DST failed.
Run-In test...fail and short DST failed.
Hard disk 1 test failed
Memory test passed

When I exit the System Diagnostics it goes to a black screen and I have to restart...hit ESC on HP screen again to get to start menu again...I hit F11 for system recovery...a screen came up saying "windows is loading file" A new screen comes up saying windows is loading and the winpdows logo appears...it then goes to a blue screen, it isn't a solid blue screen, it goes from light blue at the top to a dark blue at the bottom...it looks like sun rays coming down from the top. The cursor is a big white arrow and I can move it but that's all except restart and to back to start menu. If I don't hit the ESC button it just goes to a black screen and if I hit the enter button to continue start up it goes to a black screen also.

It's been a while since this problem occurred. I haven't had time to try work on it but it seems like the last thing I did on it was to download some pictures from my digital camera.

The pin on the inside of the ac adapter plug on the back of my notebook computer broke off. Therefore, I am not able to connect the ac adapter. I have a hp pavilion za4805us model. Does anyone know if that can be repaired. I understand that some plugs can be replaced and others are attached to the motherboard. Any ideas or help.

Thanks

I'm not sure about that particular model, but you would think it would be like anything else, just soldering a new plug onto the motherboard. Not something I could do, but a laptop specialist can do it I would think.

Hello all,

My daughter has a HP laptop and she cannot use it as it wont turn on. I thought it was the a/c adapter but it is not (other daughter has the same machine). I think the problem is where the adapter plugs into on the laptop. Can this be replaced or is her laptop broken completely?

Please help, she is driving me mad x
 

A:Cannot plug A/C adapter in, please help

Which laptop model is it (get the info from the label on the bottom, not the bezel or plastic near the screen.
The adapter plug can be repaired by a skilled technician... but the cost is often as high as $175... the cost of a new motherboard. The part itself is sold by HP for about $40 from their "support" center, but should really only be about $6.00 on eBay. The trick is the soldering, which require skill and a lot of experience.
When we know your model numbers from the bottom sticker, we can perhaps be of more help.
It would also be helpful to know the city near where you live that might have technicians.

 Whenever I plug in any headphone into my laptop I can immediately hear white static noise in the background. This doesn't happen when I play audio through the laptop's own speaker and there isn't a problem with the headphones because I don't experience the same problem on different laptops. Just to be sure I've tried a 5 other headphones/earphone combination from various companies and the white noise problem only ever shows up on the XPS13. I also checked the status of the audio drivers and windows says that they're are all up to date. I bought the laptop around 2/3 months ago and i've had this problem ever since. 

Anyone know how to fix this issue?

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.

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

Hi. And thanks for reading this post.
 
Description: Windows 7 Starter (netbook) loads , desktop is visible for about 30 seconds, then is taken over by a white screen with a submit box on the right bottom portion of the screen. Other than a one-line warning that says "You have 30 seconds to connect to the internet," there are no other messages or directions. I suspect it is some type of flawed ransomware, with an intelligent, very well-hidden code.
 
From a USB, using command prompt, I've tried several dozen malware scanners including HitmanPro and MalwareBytes without success.
 
The computer was infected on 11/18/15 and the virus seems to have deleted any previous restore point(s).
 
The white screen virus locks up Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Networking. The white screen also launches when trying to use explorer.exe or opening up notepad to save a file to the desktop. Tried to use a new user account to bypass the virus, but the white screen locks up the new user account in the same way.

I was given a nextbook several months ago. I don't know how to tell details like what version it is. It says manufactured Sept. 2014, and has serial number.

I do have operating system details though. It was upgraded to Windows 10 shortly before I received it.
My issue: No matter where I plug it in, directly in an outlet, or into a power strip designed for a computer, in a heavy duty power cord, the square plug part (not the cable to nextbook) gets hot. Not just warm, hot. So I can never get the battery fully charged, because soon as it gets beyond slightly warm, I have to unplug it. Worried about overheating and fire. I've never had anything likethis before, but I don't think this is normal.
I've included 2 images of the cable/plug. Also image of system info.

Any suggestions what the issue is and what I can do for it? My Computer just quit on me, so I'm relying on my nextbook until I learn if computer can be fixed or if it's a goner.

A:XPS 17 NEW adapter plug loose and falls out?!?!

There is a simple resolution. Dell has not provided the @malkboy explanation to it phone support, engineering, tech, Terry_B or its partners.
Dell has not made an official statement regadring the design, the problem or a fix. Until then we can assume its a problem because we the customers don't like it.
@melkboy - were it the case that this is the design to prevent the cost of replacing a motherboard, etc., then Dell should so say. As it is Dell has burdened the cost of replacing my XPS17 2x, sending me an XPS 15, providing a daughterboard repalcement, 3x a new powercord and my loyalty and business. I have BEGGED to peak to someone with knowledge and no one has come forward to make your explanation.
@Terry_B has provided the best communication and there has been no communication from him to this effect.
Its a bad design, Dell's intent was not to prevent damage from tripping. Dell is running away from its customers and this problem.

I suppose you're talking about Power Manager, while terming it ugly is subjective but it's not unnecessary at all. It tells you information regarding things the LED indicator nor Windows power manager can. Still if you're not convinced, then you can uninstall it from the Add/Remove programs.

a little bit of background first. i no longer have a battery for my laptop. i can only use it when the adapter is plugged into it. yesterday i tried turning it on, but it doesnt. this morning i tried turning it on again and it turned on, for a few seconds then it died. after a few frustrating tries, i noticed that the AC adapter light would blink on and off, like it wasnt supplying power to my laptop. and because my laptop no longer has a battery, it dies. i tried to plug the adapter to another socket because i thought it was a grounded socket issue, but the same thing happens. a friend of mine suggested that it may be the radeon video card that i had got somehow fried or overheated or something, so we tried uninstalling it(yes, there was a time it stayed on long enough for me to log in and uninstall my video card). sometimes it would take 5 seconds for the AC adapter light to blink and die, sometimes it takes 5 minutes or so. after uninstalling my video card, the same thing still happens. when i turn it on, sometimes it only takes a couple of seconds before it dies. sometimes, even if i dont turn it on, the AC adapter light would go on and off, like there was something disrupting the flow of electricity from my socket to my AC adapter to my laptop that causes the light to blink on and off very fast. could it be a power supply issue?

Hello @Morgan2468, Welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience! To help you get the most out of the HP Forums I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More. I have read your post on how your desktop computer's light on the power adapter shut off. Is the desktop not able to power on? Does the adapter work if plugged into another outlet? Does the adapter light come on if it is plugged directly into a wall outlet? Please re-post with the necessary information, this way I will be able to research this further for you. I look forward to your reply!Cheers!

I am traveling to Hong Kong in a couple of months. My HP laptop is from the US. It has an external power brick that takes 100-240V.

My question is about the cord that goes from the power brick to the wall outlet. The cord has a US plug. Does the cord also take 100-240V and I just need to buy a plug adapter, or does the cord only take US voltage and I need to buy a new cord?

A:Buy plug adapter or new power cord for travel?

You just need a plug adaptor, the power brick and the cord itself already supports International Voltages (worldwide)

(e.g. Hong Kong uses 50 Hz, 200/220 V, so you're pretty much covered there.)

Something like this:-

Hi. Often, not always, when I plug in a USB device to one of the external USB ports on my desktop, my (already plugged in, and working) USB wireless adapter stops working. I lose my wireless Internet connection, and I have to reset it - either manually by unplugging it and re-inserting it, or via Windows' troubleshooting wizard. Is there either a way to stop this from happening completely (preferred, of course), or is there at least a quicker way of resetting it - like a quick program on the desktop I can run - I can even code it in Visual Studio (2013) if needed). I'm assuming that the USB ports are somehow shared and conflicting? FWIW, I have 6 USB ports on the back of the machine, plus a single one on the front access panel. Win 7 Ultimate x86, 3 Gig, no errors/conflicts under Device Manager\USB controllers. Any help is appreciated. Further info upon request....

A:Wireless adapter needs resetting when I plug in a USB device

Hello JDGiants. Welcome to the forum.

Does this behavior happen no matter what port you plug the USB stick into? Even the one on the front access panel?

If this were a power problem then it would make sense that it occurs when two or more devices are drawing power from one USB controller on the motherboard.
USB2.0 can have up to 4 ports on one controller, so I'm guessing that at least 2 ports in the back are on a separate controller. By trying the wireless device in all the different ports you may be able to come up with a pattern.

You might also try experimenting with the keyboard and mouse disconnected. Report back what you find.

My Dell D800 laptop stop working.

When I plug the ac-adapter the power light goes off on the adapter. It is obvious short on the motherboard. I did took it apart and look for some problem around DC-jack, but I don't think the problem is there. All the accessories are off . It is only mobo now by it self and does same thing. Anybody knows where I should look for the short. Which chip or diode it could be? I heard it is very common problem with D800 and D600 models. Since I am pretty good with soldering I think, and it is my hobby as well I would like to repair the mobo my self instead replace. Definitely would be much cheaper as well.

Thanks in advance for any input on this matter.
 

A:Dell D800 AC adapter turns off when plug in

Some laptops have a separate internal DC converter, and some DC converters are part of the motherboard. If you haven't tried another AC adapter, I would do that first. After replacing the AC adapter, check the DC jack for a high resistance using a good multimeter... A normal resistance would be around a half Meg ohm. If the internals are shorted, the resistance would be much lower. Unless you have the skill and tools to do surface mount soldering, I wouldn't attempt a repair

Hi
We recently purchased 4 Optiplex 7050 Mini Towers and 4 QLogic 57810 Dual Port 10Gb Direct Attach/SFP+ adapters. After I installed the Qlogic network adapter to the PCI-E x16 slot, POST failed when power on. The power light flash in yellow but no video output. I tried to use other PCI-E 8X card but the same result. A PCI-E 4x data acquisition card works find in both PCI-E slots (16x and 4x).
It seems the system considered the net network adapter as video card and thus no video output from build-in video card. Also, failed to check and init hardware.
Please correct me if I am wrong and could you advise any possible solutions such changing BIOS setup? 
Many thanks

A:POST failed when plug in PCI-E 8X network adapter

Try this, with that card removed from x16 slot, reboot and immediately press F2 to open BIOS setup.
Look for the Primary Display option and make sure it's set it to Intel HD Graphics, not to AUTO. Save the change and exit setup. Allow PC to boot and confirm that the onboard video is working. Then power off, unplug, and press/hold power button for ~15 sec. Now install that card in the x16 slot. Close up and reboot.
If that works, keep in mind that every time BIOS is reset to the defaults, eg to clear an error when the motherboard battery is removed,  you'll have to remove the add-in card, change the Primary Display option again...
If that doesn't work, you're probably out of luck using that card in the x16 slot.

We have several computers here that are all of a sudden having problems watching radar (weather channel - we're a landscape company)or any video or pictures that change. The screens either get white squares that keep coming up across the area or the area is completely white....several operating systems from XP to 7.

Are they all updated with the latest video card drivers, directx, and flash?

I set up a Hanns-G 28" monitor. It had an area where the back light seemed to penetrate a black background yielding a white smudge. Said smudge was visible only from head-on and from the left. Move your head right, and the smudge disappeared.

Because it resembled a smudge, I took a handy monitor cleaning rag wrapped into a ball, and gently pressed against the screen, depressing its face somewhat. The light smudge immediately disappeared in the area where I had pressed. I repeated the process all over the area of the "smudge" and successfully got rid of the light leakage everywhere.

Can some tech type opine as to what I did, so if it reoccurs someday, I can take a more scientific approach to the situation? tia

I would chalk it up to lucky... you shouldn't press on LCDs.
