Inspiron 5755 - Video Streaming Color Problem While Charging

Q: Inspiron 5755 - Video Streaming Color Problem While Charging

I'm having the exact same problem as http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3519/t/20004345 who reported: "I have been experiencing distorted color while trying to watch certain videos online. For example if I want to watch [a video] the thumb nail and video advertisements are in color, but the video content from this and other sites plays in black and white or only in very [washed out] colors. Even more confusing is the fact that this only occurs while my laptop is connected to the AC adapter. If the computer is unplugged the color returns to normal then goes back to black and white when the charger is reconnected."
I'm using the factory AC adapter, plugged into the wall. I've tried updating "AMD Radeon R5" video drivers to no avail.
The problem started the day after warranty expired - I kid you not :[

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 been experiencing distorted color while trying to watch certain videos online. For example if I want to watch a video on ESPN.com the thumb nail and video advertisements are in color, but the video content from this and other sites plays in black and white or only in very dull colors. Even more confusing is the fact that this only occurs while my laptop is connected to the AC adapter. If the computer is unplugged the color returns to normal then goes back to black and white when the charger is reconnected.

I have tried updating all my drivers but it hasn't had any effect.

What specific laptop model?How long have you had the laptop before the issue started?Is the AC adapter plugged directly into the wall outlet?Is that the original AC adapter that shipped with the laptop?

Just after I purchased this inspiron 13-5378 (intel core i7) immediately after setting everything up and running smoothly, I tested it by watching a few videos on youtube. I noticed that videos just stop loading and the whole chrome browser just hangs for a couple 10seconds if i "jump" along the playbar too quickly/repeatedly. Then the video would just show a green screen and I have to reload the page to continue watching. Was a bit shocked since it was a new PC, and that other than that it is much faster than my previous laptops (which were admittedly quite old, 5 years or more old haha)
This still occurs occasionally for about a month now. It's really irritating so i decided to post here. Is there anything i can do to fix it? Is it a problem with this model's weak graphics card? Do i have to upgrade to a new one to resolve this? 
Sorry, I'm not really a tech enthusiast so i'm quite unknowledgeable about this things. Any advice is very much appreciated. Thanks a lot! (:

Is there any way to change the colour of the led which glows white when charging and orange when battery low?

If you solder in a new LED, possibly.  Short of that, no.  Doing so will void your warranty if that's a consideration.

I bought new and have had the 5755 for 3-weeks.  The problem is the touchpad.  The thing is all over the place.  You have hardly any control at all.  It has a lot features but all is ***. Everything is made together, when you hold the area of the left mouse button the mouse arrow still moves too.  This makes it very challenging to control it.  Just wondering if anybody is having this problem and what is the fix?

I received an Inspiron 5755 as a birthday gift in November. Since then, I have been having an issue where it will crash multiple times a week (sometimes multiple times a day). I have run every diagnostic Dell recommends but to no avail. I even followed their instructions TO THE LETTER that resulted in bricking my laptop and having to send it to Dell for repair.
This is extremely frustrating that a practically new laptop has this issue. All of the "solutions" that I have been told to try so far, have not worked at all.
I thought maybe it was the network card causing the crash because it only seemed to crash when I was using WiFi but now it has starting crashing when connected with an Ethernet cable.
Attached is the crash report

I recently became an owner via my mother in law. I reset the computer from windows, but during the update it froze and I had to do a hard reboot. Now it takes me to the critical update (light) blue screen, flashes the loading icon, and then goes to a black screen with only my pointer in attendance. I would appreciate help fixing it from inside the setup utility.

Dell Inspiron 5575 with AMD A8 & Windows 10 is only 30 days old. Was working fine then screen went black. I can see display if I hold a flashlight to the screen. I've tried several fixes: put in safe mode, updated drivers, run diagnostics. Now it just goes to nothing after Dell logo or just stays on Dell logo but still has black screen. I've read that several others have had this issue after a Windows 10 update, which is what I originally tried to resolve but now it's gotten worse. Can someone please help me? Really dont want to return the laptop is this is fixable.

Hello,
I just recently got an Inspron 5755 to use for school and have tried really hard to adjust scrolling preferences, but to no avail. It's set to the two finger scrolling and it's honestly driving me up the wall. I've tried changing it, but when I go to mouse setting and then select the "Dell Touchpad" tab that's where it all ends. When I click on the image of the touchpad, nothing happens. When I click on the "Click to Change DellTouchpad settings" same things occurs.There will be a blue spinning wheel, but nothing opens. I checked in programs and features and Dell Touchpad is installed. Also, I'm using Windows 8.
I just want to scroll with one finger.
Thanks!

Hello, 
I have an inspiron 5755 with an AMD A8-7410 APU with AMD Radeon R5 Graphics. I am trying to connect my laptop to my external Dell U2211H monitor. 
I was a support technician for moer than 8 years, so here's what I've done so far, along with general issue information.
I was able to get the external monitor to work with the laptop for all of a day with a DVI to HDMI adapter. However it took some wiggling to get it to work and when it stopped working I purchased a Display Port to HDMI adapter in case the DVI port was the issue, which still isn't working. 
I have tested both adapters, and they both work fine. and I have tested the external monitor, which works fine. 
The monitor recognizes that it is plugged into something, but it says it is not receiving a signal from the laptop.
I know the monitor is good, both adapters are good and the HDMI cable is good. 
I've updated every driver I could find for the laptops current configuration (only thing Ive changed is more memory and an SSD Hard Drive, but it was working with both those in) and specifically for the R5 and this specific external monitor. I've also updated the BIOS to the latest "A15" version. 
Id really like this up and running again, so I'm open to ideas!

Its not something as simple as 'detect display' as no display is detected and the display settings show only one monitor.

I recently installed Windows Service Pack 2, actually three times after reinstating my computer software to the original state by erasing and reinstalling the full software install CD on my computer's hard drive for Window XP Home. I have no problems playing games with my new FX 5200 Ultra video card by BFG, but I am at random times getting the annoying green screen that blanks out my videos I am streaming or playing(happens when I am streaming more often). Then after that happens usually, the computer reboots or shuts off. I never had this happen before. My computer's memory tests ok so why can I play games with this never happening but when I am streaming or watching video through Windows Media Player, etc do I get the "green screen blankout" and then often the shutdown of my computer? I have 512 MB of system memory and 128 MB of video memory! I use System Mechanic and it shows I have at least half of my memory even during playback so what is the problem here? I can attach my system computer file of my information if you like in an e-mail if it will help. AND YES I HAVE THE DIVX CODECS. I thought about that to and uninstalled and reinstalled them with the same random problems. PLEASE HELP ME. This is really annoying.
 

A:video playback and streaming. Video card problem or software?

Well, it seems u dont have a hardware problem. this problem occurs only when u r watching videos. so i guess its the media player. take my suggestion, stop using it. Download this pack: KLite Codec Pack. I think the latest version is 3.2. Its got all the codecs u need to play compressed videos, and dvds. Its also got an advanced media player which can play any video u open it with like wmv, dat, mpg, rm, mov, avi, divx..... of course, the codecs for these formats r included in the pack.

Hi there, ive had this problem on my dell inspiron 1545 for as long as ive had it and havent been able to find a fix for it.

Basically if im watching a video stream on my laptop(youtube, megavideo, bbciplayer, googlevideo etc) the screen goes into idle mode(black blank screen) after about 20 mins of watching and i have to press a key or the mouse in order for the picture to come back and have to do this every 20 mins. So if im watching a programme that lasts say 1 hour and a half, i cant just sit back, relax and watch the entire thing, I have had to get up and press a key/mouse 4 times(every 20 mins) to stop the sreen going blank.

Does anyone know how to stop this or increase this 'idle time' or whatever it is from 20mins to say 2 hours etc?

I have had a problem for some time now with WMP9 and streaming video. the problem is with all formats EXCEPT .asf and .wmv. those two work fine, all others crash WMP9 with an "unknown error". After this had happened a few times I decided to send an error report on it to see if it might find a fix. It came up witth an article that said I needed to update my copy of MPEG Encoder. I do not have that application(yes it was refering to an application, had a link for me to dl it)
I did at one time attempt to install Adobe Premiere but it did not install correctly and I uninstalled it. it included a version of MPEG Encoder in it, so gave that app a shot, it did not fix the problem.

I can play all media formats if they are on my machine. I can also stream these files using Quicktime or RealOne(but I don't like those apps)
The problem also seems to occur in K++(Kazaa) If I try to preview any video types other than wmv or asf, I get the same error as when streaming.

As I said, this has been going on for a while now, I've looked around, asked around and searched old threads here. I can come up with nothing and no one seems to want to help me other than suggesting a format. I do not subscribe to the theory that a format is a fix for anything, so that is not an option. I need to fix this, it has gone from being a slight annoyance, to being a huge headache.
 

A:Streaming video problem

Adobe Premiere is known not to uninstall the codecs it has installed and I personally have had problems with this. IIRC all i had to do was to delete the offending files from windows system folder.. I'm sure you can find the exact instructions how to do this if you search the web (that's how i got them).

I am having issues with streaming video from my PC to my TV by means of an HDMI cord. It used to be very simple: I would plug in the HDMI cord to both the PC and TV, change the settings on the T.V. to "HDMI", and on the PC press the "windows key + P" to change the settings to "duplicate" or "extend". I tried clearing everything up with my Norton services, but I can't find any issues.
Now the streaming won't work and I am not sure why. If I create another account on the computer it sometimes works but after enough times of streaming video, that stops working as well. The last time I tried the visual part worked, however I couldn't transfer the sound to the T.V. even when I tried adjusting all the settings. Anyone have any ideas?

I have a Dell SC600 tower computer, several years old. It has a P4 with 2.66 GB speed. I have 2 GB ram, 7200 rpm hard drives and an Internet Connection that varies between 2 and 5 MB. I'm guaranteed 2 MB...but most of the time if I check it, it's a lot faster.

This particular problem has started since I installed Windows 7...I never had it in XP. When I installed Windows 7, I didn't have the problem, it seem to have started recently. It could have started when I replaced RC with the Release version.

When I try to play a Video...regardless of the source, it plays for a few seconds, then stops, then plays for a few seconds, then stops, and never just plays. The Video buffer never fills up...it just stays at the current location. \

I don't mind waiting till the buffer reaches 100% and then start playing the video...but no matter how long I wait, the buffer indicator doesn't move.

Hi there :)


I'm running into an odd problem. It started a couple days ago for reasons unknown. If I try to play an embedded video, such as this, the video will begin to play in media player as normal, but a download progress window will also open. This didn't use to happen, but here's the really weird part- if I cancel the download progress window, everything is fine; if I let it go the video will either restart, or stop playing all together along with an error message stating that the file cannot be found.

I tried clearing my TIFs, relocating my TIF folder, checked and rechecked every setting I can see, and everything looks fine. It's kind of baffling =[

Any ideas?

I've been having the same problem for a while now. When I try to watch a video online, I can only load a small portion of it at a time. The progress bar will only move part of the way (usually only a minute or two out of a 30 minute video) and then completely stop. I've tried waiting for several hours to see if it's just slow, but it just stops.

It's not a matter of a slow connection--mine is very fast.
This happens both in IE and Firefox. I have cleared my cache and reinstalled Flash Player, but that didn't help either.

However, I recently installed Nero, after which I find that streaming to WMP 10 no longer works. Instead, the files have to be downloaded first. I've checked the file associations in WMP 10 and Win XP, and ensured that .wmv and .wma files are to be opened with WMP, but that doesn't help.

Shall I try re-installing WMP 10? Or is there some setting in WMP that was overwritten by Nero?

I can't figure it out. It has nothing to do with my firewall since the other computers that work fine are on the same firewall. Even reformatting does nothing! Is there a substitute for Media Player that I can use? If I download the file first then play it, then it works fine, I just can't stream direct.

I just set up a brand new computer that is having problems across all browsers streaming video from sites like YouTube or Facebook. The video appears to be in slow motion/stuttering.

The PC is a Dell Precision 3620, intel (quad core 3.2 GHz, 3.6 Ghz Turbo, 6MB, w/ HD Graphics 530); 16 GB RAM; integrated graphics card. Windows 7 Professional.

Here is what I've already tried:

*I disabled Hardware Graphic Accelerator on all browsers.
*I made sure Adobe flash is up to date.
*I cleared internet history.
*I made sure windows is totally up to date.
*A different computer at the same location (network drop) did not have trouble streaming videos. Other computers on the same network are not having trouble streaming video.
*I checked memory usage and performance when the videos are stuttering and nothing appears to be taking up an exorbitant amount of resources.
* I checked to see if there was an update for the graphics driver (there wasn't)

I rebooted the computer and for a little while, videos streamed ok, but after a few hours, the user reported that videos were once again stuttering/ appear to be playing in slow motion.

Hello,

I recently did an upgrade on my laptop, just so I can have a clean version of Windows 7 ad start from scratch as the system was feeling a bit clunky. I m planning on doing a clean install and formatting soon (maybe tomorrow), but for now I currently have a problem.

So before the upgrade, I had no problem playing YouTube videos, or any other videos on streaming sites using both Mozilla and Chrome. I could watch videos on wither piece of software at 720p without any problems with lag and stuttering. After this upgrade, nothing seems to work. When I try to watch YouTube videos, even on 360p I will get major slowdown on the video itself and when using the laptop. Thos only occurs when the videos is playing, and when stopped it goes away. I have looked at task manager to see the CPU usage and when playing videos the usage of it is in the high 80s and lower 90s percentages.

The current actions I have taken are these:
I have disabled hardware acceleration in both Adobe Flash Player and Mozilla.
Removed enhancements on audio in case it was audiodg tampering with it (had this problem before)
I have disabled all of the add-ons I have present in the browser, including Adobe Flash Player
When I did this, the Mozilla's own container was still giving me high CPU usage
I have tried booting with just Microsoft applications and drivers running and still get the high usage
I am currently doing the following:
Running a MalwareBytes scan
Running a MSE scan
Uninstalling Adobe... Read more

A:Video Streaming Problem

Have you installed/updated ALL of the system and hardware drivers? You should be using the drivers from the manufacturers website, not the default drivers installed by Windows.

OS: Windows XP
Video: Intel on-board
Ram: 1gb

I've got a PC having video problems streaming but only with these sites that stream live football games and sports events. It runs fine with youtube etc. No problems with movies or anything like that. All the basic stuff checked like updated video drivers, disk space, flash etc. Also tried disabling hardware accelerator. The sound works fine but the video runs in slow motion. My thinking is the on-board card or lack of memory but the fact it runs other site such as youtube I'm doubting this. BB speed is excellent so this is not the problem. Any ideas?

A:Video streaming problem.

Look to the web pages FAQ's and see what the minimum requirements are. You may need a video card with separate video memory to play this site. Also when streaming, stop the video from automatically starting, and let it buffer for a few minutes (there may be a grey progress bar ahead of the actual playing progress bar)
Be sure to update Java and Shockwave.

I seem to have a very unusual problem with video streaming on my computer. Whereas all the other computers on my network stream videos fine, my laptop 'stops' continually whilst watching flash or quicktime videos. I have a very fast and reliable internet connection, and my laptop is high spec. I've tried everything from firewalls, antivirus, settings, I even have the same problem in safe mode.
Can anyone help? Thanks.

This is a Windows 7 machine, Pentium 4, 2.667 GHz. I have 2 GB Ram. I got hooked on You-Tube and the old Star Trek series
http://www.youtube.com/show?p=Zk2dX5DnW_c&s=1

It worked great for a couple of episodes, then suddenly it would only play for a couple seconds, then a few seconds of loading, then play a few seconds, etc.

It's doing it in nearly every video application.

I have a 5 mb internet connection. When I had the 1 mb connection it worked fine.

I've tried running in full performance mode with none of the Win 7 graphics enhancements, that doesn't help. I'm not sure what else to change.

Long story short: Whenever I try to view streaming WMV video in my Windows Media Player 10, all I get is the audio. The picture is just black. All local files work though, and my roommate (on college network) CAN view the files that I cannot, so I don't think it's a network thing.

Two videos I cannot see:

Any idea what my problem might be?
