Dell :: Inspiron 3737 - Windows 8.1 Lid Close / Display Never Comes Back From Being Blank

Aug 20, 2014

My laptop is Inspiron 17 3737. 

When I close my lid, with the system set on not sleeping (just turn off back-light) and reopen it the screen remains blank. It happens even if I'm logged in, or not, or from sleep. So, basically, the display never comes back from being blank. 

I tried updating all the drivers, I tried with the original ones, same problem....

Browsers/Mail :: Suppress Display Of Close All Tabs - Close Current Tab

Aug 10, 2014

I am running Windows 8.1 and IE 11. When I have multiple tabs open and click the X in the upper right hand corner I get an option that asks me if I want to CLOSE ALL TABS - CLOSE CURRENT TAB. I always want to close just one tab. How can I suppress the display of the Close All Tabs - Close Current Tab question and still be able to close just one tab?

Hardware Drivers :: Dell Inspiron 1545 - Blank Screen After Installing Graphics Driver

Nov 14, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545, the screen is broke so I use an external monitor which doesn't project BIOS or Boot up so I cannot see anything. I found a thread on here that adds the Intel Graphics Driver for Mobile 4 Series for Windows 8 which I supposed would work on 8.1.

The link I installed:

Mobile Intel Series 4 and Intel HD Graphics 1st Generation. I installed it and restarted the laptop for the GUI to start.

But as I restarted, the screen was blank. I tried cycling through projection modes as I usually do, but this time It didn't work.

I have no clue of how to remove the driver to as I cannot see anything on the external monitor as I've tried it on 2.

I've tried booting into Safe Mode but as I've said, I cannot see anything on the screen so I'm not sure where I am.

Maintenance :: Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Laptop Display Brightens And Dims

Sep 15, 2014

I have a new Dell Inspiron 15 7000 laptop with an i7-4510U, Intel 4400 Graphics, 1920x1080 screen, and Windows 8.1. I have noticed that the display will brighten and dim when switching between apps. For example, going from a dark desktop background to a white background such as File Explorer, it will take the display about 5 to 10 seconds to brighten to the appropriate level. Going back to the desktop it will dim and sometimes even show a quick flash. I have the display set at 60% brightness and have turned off the adaptive brightens. Also using the latest Intel drivers. Exhibits this behavior on battery or AC. Never seen this on a laptop before.

Windows 8.1 Update - Blank Flicker Occurs When Open And Close Programs

Oct 23, 2013

How big this new 8.1 update is and can it be downloaded as an iso? Also, does it contain any driver updates. I installed Win 8 on a Vista machine and it runs well, except for an annoying blank flicker that occurs when I open and close programs. Tried both a Vista and Win7 video driver but made no difference.

Windows 8.1 Not Shutting Down - Display Turns Off Then Comes Back

Feb 23, 2014

I have Hybrid boot a.k.a Fast Boot enabled before.. This occurred to me last week.

When I click on shut down, It shows shutting down and displays turns off.. little later the screen turns on and the desktop comes back.. If I have turn it off, I have to force the PC by holding the Power button. I googled it and they said to turn off Hybrid boot, but it was the only reason I installed Windows 8..

Now that I turned it off, it takes a while to turn on/off the PC..

This not only affects Shut Down but Sleep, Hibernate and Restart too..

Win 8.1 - Display Won't Turn Back On After Automatically Turning Off

Oct 28, 2013

I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and all has been great except one thing. When I leave the computer for about 10 minutes or so, the display turns off like it is supposed to. If I want to turn the display back on though, I find I'm unable to with the mouse, keyboard, or power button. It's like it is stuck in limbo and I have to restart the PC.

Setup Installation :: Dell Ultrabook - Windows 8 Install Blank Screen

Feb 15, 2013

The problem I have now is when turning on my laptop it stays at the Dell logo for about 5 minutes before continuing to attempt to load windows, this is in UEFI mode. In legacy mode, it loads past the Dell logo in seconds, but this does not load windows.

I am trying to reinstall windows with the Dell windows 8 Home premium disk. When the disk finally loads, it just stays on a black screen, and I've left it for about an hour and it will not load.

I have tried using Hirens boot CD (USB) to load Mini windows xp, but that does exactly the same. I can load Linux from the usb but not windows. However, I have never used Linux so I cannot do anything in Linux to attempt to fix it, as I do not know what I'm doing inside Linux.

Can Run Windows 8 On Dell Inspiron 1521 Laptop

Jun 13, 2013

I have a new laptop with Windows 8 and I really like it. I also have an older Dell Inspiron 1521 with an AMD 64 bit processor, 4 gig of RAM and a 160 gig SSD. It runs Win7 just fine and I believe it will run Windows 8. My new laptop came with 8 installed so I don't have a box to check the low end specs for running 8. I have Linux on it now and I would like to run both. It boots in to Linux in 20 seconds, about the same time as my new Windows 8 laptop.

Dell :: Inspiron One 2330 - Windows 8 Not Booting At All

Oct 8, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron One 2330, which had Windows 8 Pre Installed, one fine day it stopped booting windows 8...

No matter, I had the recovery media... I made a full system restore... and nothing... it still does not boot.

Black screen after windows logo.

Dell Diagnostics accused no trouble whatsoever, all the tests performed successfully.

After a lot of tinkering, I managed to go back to Windows 7, the system runs fine, but I am running a trial license of Win 7, as I have not yet bought a license (I actually tried restoring the system using the Dell generated backup disks AND the Windows 8 OEM Disk, provided after those did not work).

What could be preventing Windows 8 from booting, since neither the installation fails, nor the HDD acuses any problem?

Dell Inspiron 7250 - Windows 8.1 Freezing On Desktop

Nov 13, 2013

Since I've updated to 8.1 my laptop is taking a long to boot up and when it finally does load it's slow as hell.

I'll then be playing Football Manager and when I hit the windows key to go back to my desktop it freezes. I've tried opening task manager and that freezes too, the only thing that functions properly is the metro screen.

I thinking it's a compatibility issue with a program that's causing it.

Graphic Cards :: Dell Inspiron 15 With Windows 8 Is Not Recognizing AMD Rad

Aug 15, 2014

Yesterday, I restored my Inspiron 15 to it's factory settings. Post-reset, I installed all drivers for Windows 8 directly from the Dell website except for the AMD driver which I took from the AMD website (just wanting to get the latest directly from the source, I guess). I also used that "Dell Detect" thingy to make sure I have all the latest drivers for everything.

After installing, everything worked great, but I realized that when the display turns off / when I shut down the laptop / when I close the lid, it does not turn off the computer or hibernating it or making go to sleep - it just keep running but there is no display, total darkness. Trying to press the power button / F4-F5 / any other button-pressing related solution did not work, only hard-reset.

Googling this issue, I found that it is very common, and many people with almost brand new Dell laptops, just like me, have encountered the same problem. In most of the solutions offered it was said that doing so would cause the system to mainly use the Intel Graphics HD card and not the AMD, meaning that for games and graphics, the AMD won't matter, which doesn't seem to be fair after paying extra exactly so I can have a dedicated card.

Either way, I started with the first which was using Windows Update. After checking the Windows Update updates list, I saw 2-graphic card related items - something called Graphics Adapter WDDM, one for the AMD card and the other for the Intel Graphics HD. After installing this update, I realized I can successfully turn off the laptop.

Once I turned it back on this morning, I got a pop-message:

I then realized that it just simply doesn't see/use/detect the AMD card. This is how my AMD Catalyst looks right now:

Looking at Everest, you can see it only sees the Intel Graphics HD:

However, device manager is still listing the AMD card as if it's properly working:

And if you look at the event log, you can see that initial driver was installed right after the Windows 8 fresh install I made a day and a half ago, and then there's other events, last night, around the time when I installed the Windows Update thingy:

Dell :: Inspiron Rs7720 / Windows 8 Booting From 2nd Time Only?

Jan 19, 2013

I have a laptop, dell inspiron rs7720 with windows 8 on it. Once i tried to boot a different operation system from a memory stick, it didn't work, nothing happened. From that day after a first boot(doesn't matter through restart or by shutting it down) I always keep getting a quick dell logo for 1 second and then a black screen. By pressing buttons like Esc-f12 the ~Boot options F12~ appears on the right bottom of the screen. If I press F12 no reaction happens. If i just turn the laptop off by holding a button and turn it on again it boots up properly. Tried to reinstall bios, didn't work, but the bios does work. However boot options doesn't(if you press f12 at the dell logo).

Dell Inspiron / Windows 8 - Grey Screen On Startup

May 26, 2013

I have a fairly new (bought in December) Dell Inspiron/Windows 8 that is used mainly by my kids to play games. It's minimally loaded- Windows Office, Adobe and generally starts up fast. Today they report to me that "something is wrong." On start up all I get is a grey screen. I tried F2 and F10 - no response. Doesn't even respond to Control/Alt/delete. I've searched the forums and the only thing that seems to come close is that they have possibly enlarged a split screen somehow so it's hiding everything else- but what to do? It has to get to Windows to do that, and we're not there yet.

Windows 8 On Dell XPS PC - USB Back Up Drive Loses Files But Not Folders

Jul 31, 2014

I am running windows 8 on a dell xps pc. I have 2 large 3tb and 4tb external seagate drives. After a day or so they lose part of the connection. You can see the drive and folders a couple of levels deep but you can't see files. If you unplug and start again everything is there. On other machines it's not a problem. When you try to eject usb hardware it displays that something is accessing the device. So it's not the drive, it's a driver or something else.
