Inspiron 13-5378 Video streaming problem (Green screen)

Q: Inspiron 13-5378 Video streaming problem (Green screen)

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! (:

Preferred Solution: Inspiron 13-5378 Video streaming problem (Green screen)

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.)


Inspiron 13-5378  2 in 1. 8 gb RAM, 1tb hard drive. Received this laptop yesterday 1-20-17. Touch screen didn't work. I disabled the touch screen driver, rebooted then enabled the touch screen driver and it worked for a while. While installing software it stopped. tried several things including uninstalling the video driver. i downloaded the video driver from the Dell web site, installed it and the touch screen worked. I shut the laptop down and when i booted up this morning the touch screen was not working. Tried disabling the touch screen driver, rebooting and enabling it again. no luck. I then tried to reinstall the video driver, also no luck. can someone help or do I need to return?

A:Touch Screen on Inspiron 13 - 5378 not working

Since no one from Dell has shown up yet, I will share my experience.  A couple of years ago I got a system with the Nvidia and Intel Display Adapters.  I noticed the Nvidia one would lose it drivers and would disappear from the Device Manager.  
The device was intermittent, although basically unusable, for a couple of months and then finally completely failed.  
If something is not dependable possibly the system is losing contact with the device.  Maybe it is only a connection problem or something worse, but at the very least I would start a conversation with support.

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 :[

Hey, would really appreciate some help with my problem it is driving me crazy! I am running windows 8 on a 500gb hdd 4gb ram laptop. I have been putting videos from my SLR Camera in .mov onto my pc and suddenly I can't play them. On quicktime/media player there is sound but no video. On VLC there is video but with these white lines all through it and very jittery, sound works ok though... Then also online (using chrome) facebook and vimeo videos have no sound and a green screen... I tried to disable graphics acceleration on adobe but this didn't help with any of the problems.

Some videos still play on VLC like .mp4 but .mov definitley doesn't seem to work anywhere... I am preety sure these issues are linked (online green screens/.mov not working) since both started today.

Thank you,

On my Windows XP professional I am having a problem viewing not all but many video's. What is happening is when I go to "Full Screen" option the entire screen turns green, and only the audio from the video is heard. After the picture turns green in "Full Screen" if I go back to the small version of the video that played fine, it is green now too. Can anyone answer this questions below:

1) Does anyone know why this is happening when video's played fine with "Full Screen" for over 3 years?

2) What can I do to correct this problem?

3) Why does some video's play fine in "Full Screen" option?

Hello everyone. I recently just purchased two of the Dell Inspiron 13 5378 laptops. Both are Core i7, 8g ddr4 and 256SSD. 
Can a second SSD be added?

Can the fan be upgraded? It seems a bit undepowered and the laptop gets very hot as a result.


A:Inspiron 13 5378

The system has space for just one 2.5" drive -- and no M.2 connector for a card-type drive -- so one drive is all it can take.
No, the fan cannot be upgraded.  Be sure the system is being run on a hard, flat surface - NEVER in your lap or on upholstered or other cloth surface (which will block the cooling intakes and lead to rapid overheating).

I bought three of these laptops from Costco for my business because the great price and specs.  One of the units is kept at a remote location, and I use TeamViewer to access it.  I disabled all power management features except for turning off the screen.It repeatedly/consistently goes blank when I'm away, where not only is the screen off but the computer disconnects from the internet and is offline in TeamViewer.  When I physically get to to computer to see what's wrong, the laptop is still powered on but the screen is off.  Nothing will get the screen to come back on, and the only option is to hard reboot the computer by holding in the power button. I ran Dell's Diagnostic tests, and everything checked out as "good".  
Has anyone experienced and corrected this type of problem?

I purchased an Inspiron 13 5378 which comes with a 1TB HDD. I'd like to upgrade to an SSD. I'm wondering if there is an unused M.2 slot where I could insert a new SSD? Would it be possible to transfer data such that the SSD is the primary disk, and the HDD is just for data storage?
If there is no M.2 slot, I suppose the only option would be to replace the HDD with a 2.5" SSD. Is that right?
I haven't received the laptop yet, just asking in advance.

A:Inspiron 13 5378 SSD upgrade

You need to move to the 7000 series to have an M.2 socket - the 5000 and 3000 series do not have them.  You'll need to replace the hard drive with a 2.5" SSD.

About once a week (it's happened twice) I get 2 amber then 6 flashing white lights on boot up and the laptop appears dead. I did the diligent thing and Googled it, leading to a post that suggested that disconnecting and reconnecting the battery would solve the issue. It did, but that involves undoing many screws to get inside the case. I don't mind doing that, in principle, but it's a workaround not a fix.
Has anyone else had this problem? Should I just call Tech Support?

I purchase Inspiron 5378 last December in USA and used in Korea.
Today, I noticed my inspiron 5378 power button retracted and it did not work.
So, I went to Dell service center in Korea. The technician opened the cover and showed the switch off from the power button circuit and button broken. They said they cannot repair it in Korea.
So, I tried to contact DELL service by chat, but no way to contact except the this fortum.
What can I do? Can I get the power button circuit and the button parts? It looks easy to repair with the parts. I have to stay Korea for several months. So, I hope to fix it here even for myself.
See the photos. 

A:Help! Inspiron 5378 power button broken

That's not going to be an easy repair - essentially you need to replace the base assembly and swap all the parts inside the system into a new base - while the part isn't likely to be expensive, the labor involved is significant - everything inside the system has to come out and be transferred over to the new chassis.

I have an Inspiron 5378 on the way, and my understanding is that it has two DDR4 slots.  Dell advertising suggests this machine can only use 16GB.  But around the web, I have seen folks suggesting that some of the earlier versions of this 2-in-1 could indeed take 32GB as 2x16GB sticks.  The CPU in this machine (Core i7-7500U) supposedly supports 32GB so I am wondering if anybody has actually tried 32GB to confirm that it works.  Thanks for any comments!

My new Inspiron 5378 running Win 10 has an intermittent crackle when playing mp3 audio from local drive under battery power. The crackle often appears when a window is moved on the screen or the mouse is moved. I've tried disabling various devices shown on Device Manager on the basis that the crackle is caused by excessive latency in one of the drivers. All drivers were updated by the Dell service person as the machine is still under warranty. The motherboard was also replaced.  The crackle is reduced in severity sometimes but does not disappear. The computer uses MalwareBytes for additional malware protection. Can anyone offer any suggestions for tracking down the cause of the crackle and removing it?

Good morning,
on my Inspiron I'd say 80% of the times the headphones don't work: I plug them in and the sound still comes out of the speakers. I can't select them either, because when I check playback devices I have only one listed as "Speaker/Headphones", and I of course can't disable it.
At the beginning I used to see a MaxxAudioPro pop-up whenever I plugged the headphones in, but then it stopped appearing; I tried to delete and reinstall drivers, install the ones on Dell website, install the default windows one... Nothing seems to work.
Help? Thanks!

A:Headphones not working - Inspiron 13 5378 2in1

If you open Task Manager to the processes tab, you should see two Waves entries.  One blue square and one green circle and if there, you should get the popup if the headphones are plugged in correctly.
If you don't have them check the startup tab to see if the Waves MaxxAudio Service is enabled.

When I was using my laptop (it was working perfectly a few hours ago) it?s battery was low enough that a screen in SupportAssist said that the battery was critically low so when I tried to reboot after letting it charge for a bit, it kept wanting to do a RAM test and when it would finish, I would hit Esc so it would reboot. I would end up getting to that screen yet again so this time I just rebooted and sure enough, I was back st that screen yet again. I did the diagnostic preboot or whatever it?s called and after it was done, it rebooted the computer and now I keep getting the No bootable devices found screen. What do I do? How can I fix this?

I just bought this laptop and literally right out of the box I have been having this problem. I did some research on this and nothing fixes it!
I am running Windows 10, that I installed cleanly.
I updated my audio driver to the current one available at Dell's website. Version 
I only use my laptop when it's plugged in. 
I tried unchecking all kinds of stuff. 
I tried turning off the EQ in Maxx Audio and that doesnt work and when the audio is working, it sounds like *** with the EQ turned off. 
I tried to reproduce the problem and can't figure out whats causing it. 
When the problem occurs, and it occurs whether Im streaming something or playing something off my drive, if I stop the song or movie and hit play again, there's an audio spike and then plays at low muffled volume. 
When the audio is screwed up, if I go into the advanced settings of the speaker properties and change from 24 bit to 16 bit, the audio will work after Ive closed everything out and open the song or whatever again.
Whats going on here? How did Dell allow this? You can't tell me they don't know about this ***! Unbelievable!

A:Audio randomly fades out on my Inspiron 13 5378!!!

Hello. I have some info I condensed from a thread about Inspiron 13 series, but the exact model names were not mentioned by the participants in the thread. The issue is this: every few seconds, the audio through the speakers fades in and out, and becomes muffled. The audio through the headphones is not affected.
Solution 1a: Right click on the speaker icon on the lower right part of your screen and choose "Playback Devices", to go to the Sound menu. Click on the Communications tab. There you'll find a set of options to "When windows detects communication activity:" Choose "Do nothing". [This solution was confirmed by several owners, but did not work for others.] Solution 1b: Solution 1a worked for one owner until the battery got very low, then problems returned. Solution was to go to MaxAudioPro>Playback>Advanced screen. Uncheck "Switch to battery save mode when battery is low".
Solution 2a: Turn off the MaxxAudio Pro Speaker Enhancement. The fading in and out will stop, but the volume becomes much lower. Solution 2b: Keep MaxxAudio on, but go into advanced settingsand uncheck MaxxVolume. Doing so keeps the volume louder. Solution 2c: Keep MaxxAudio on, but go into advanced settings and uncheck MaxxLeveler. Solution 2d: Disable MaxxAudio and enable Equalizer.

We recently purchased some of the Inspiron 5378 2 in 1 laptops. I installed Windows 10 Enterprise x64 LTSB 2015 like I have on the previous model they are no longer making, Inspiron 5368. The problem is the device "HID Sensor Collection V2" driver on dell's website nor any of the drivers from windows update will work. In device manager three out of four parts of the HID Sensor collection v2 have an error code 10 (device cannot start) failed to initialize sensor from HID collection descriptor. Specifically Locations 0, 1, and 2 are the devices not working. The machines came with Windows 10 Pro and the drivers are working correctly. I was under the assumption the driver pack in pro would be the same for enterprise but, I could be wrong.
I have tried uninstalling the drivers and re-installing them, some forums have mentioned disabling auto-rotate but that option does not show up for me anywhere. Microsoft says the manufacturers make the drivers not them and would not help unless we purchased a $500 service contract and the Dell technical representative said they do not support windows 10 enterprise for those machines and would not help me further. I am at a loss to what to try next any help would be appreciated.
