Inspiron 5459 i5 Display Flickers when receiving and sending a text message

Question: Inspiron 5459 i5 Display Flickers when receiving and sending a text message

The laptop is just 5 days old and I noticed that whenever I receive/send a text message or call (from my phone nearby), the screen flickers about five times. Similar to how speakers make a bleeping noise when near a phone.
I'm not worried about speakers but should I be worried about my screen?
Note: I have used many laptops before, and a lot more desktops; this is the first time that I encountered screen flicker due to my phone's radio.

Recently I've came across a problem while using my dell laptop.
Whenever the brightness is lower than 100% the display starts to flicker in a strange way ( sort of video artifacts) Also happens in bios and on boot. On 100% brightness no flickers are to be seen.
I've tried updating the bios and graphics drivers none of this solutions would help, though, after updating the bios (installing any version of bios) the problem seems to go away for a little while, then it comes back.
I've seen that it is a very common problem. The laptop is fairly new, I have it for about a week or so but the problem had been there since the very beginning. 
I believe it is a software issue but found no solution to it yet.
Returning it to the shop isn't really an option as it would require me sending it back to the country where it was bought from so it will make things more complicated.

My Laptop has not had a working lcd screen for about 3 weeks now but I have still been using it through my television display. When I press the Function and F8 keys at the same time my screen will flicker on for a second then go back off. I am going to take it apart and look for what the problem could be. I have a newer laptop and an external with everything backed up. Where should I be looking for the problem? could It be a simple loose wire or what could it be?
 

Answer:Dell Inspiron E1505 display flickers for a second then goes blank

If you take a flashlight and shine it on the screen, can you see a faint image. The LCD inverter may be bad. Be careful taking things apart. You can really mess things up if you don't have laptop repair experience

I receive multiple text messages of the same message. This can be over several hours. The most recent has been 4 repeats over 10 minutes I note the repeated messages are often the first in a day and are usually short messages around 6 to 8 words. The phone has been tested twice by warranty repair people who can find nothing, SIM card has been changed, updated with latest and still the problem persists. The repeat messages are not from the same sender.

Answer:Why am I receiving the same text message a number of times?

Do you notice if it does it with low signal or does it even do it with all bars too?

Hi,
I was trying the feature to send a text message through Cortana after the Windows 10 Fall update, but couldn't seem to get it to work. Cortana would say she's sending the message through my phone but then nothing happens.
Anyone know if this feature requires that I have Windows 10 mobile on my phone as well? I'm still on WP8.1 and Cortana for phones is still alpha in my region, wonder if that matters?

Answer:Sending text message from Windows 10, does it work with WP8.1 phone?

Yes, you have to have the latest build of Win 10 for it to work.

Hello,
I have a Dell Inspiron 14 5459, core i7, 4GB RAM,
The laptop runs Ubuntu GNOME 17.04.
I always used to get random full freezes and I had to do a forced shutdown.
Most of the times the laptop doesn't turn on, the screen is blank and the power indicator flashes like so:
Two times Orange and four times White. This keeps on going until I turn off the laptop.
I had to wait a while (maybe half a hour) only then it will turn on normally.
Recently, when the laptop froze, I couldn't turn it on even after 12 hours (happened at night, tired to turn on in the morning), I waited for 40 minutes - 1 hour but it still didn't turn on, the power indicator kept on flashing.
So I tried to do a hard reset by removing the AC adapter, battery and the button cell and I pressed and hold the power button for 1 minute or so.
After putting back all the things and when I tried to turn it on, the laptop still shows a blank screen, but the fan goes full speed and the power indicator flashes two times orange and four times white. I tried may ways like AC power only or battery powered only but ended up with the same result.
Can someone tell me what the flashing power indicator means? And how to fix it?
Thanks!

I have a laptop Dell Inspiron 14 5459. Sometimes when I work it suddenly black screen and the fan so noisy. After that, I must press the power button to turn it off  with force. It happens about 3-4 times while I work (typing or just browsing the internet). 
Could you please help me with this situation? What can I do? Fyi I have run the diagnostics and did not found any error.
Thank you for you support

Answer:Dell Inspiron 14 5459 suddenly black screen and shut down

Hi ZADRIANARDI,
Does this happen with or without the adapter connected? What applications are using when the display goes blank? Is the mouse cursor still seen and active when the display goes blank? Does the system overheat? Are there any bluescreens / system crashes? 
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/28V3xvh - and reinstall the chipset drivers and video drivers from the same site and check if it works fine.
If the issue is still unresolved, then connect an external monitor and check if display goes blank on the external monitor and the LCD.
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - do not make any changes here - leave the system in BIOS environment for as long as possible with the adapter connected  and see if the display goes blank while in BIOS.

Hi, 
Microsoft force-upgraded my machine to the Windows 10, version 1703 (Creator) upgrade.
After this upgrade my WiFi stopped working. Is Dell working on a new driver?
I installed the latest driver Qualcomm-QCA9565-WiFi-Bluetooth-Driver_Y8HRF_WIN_10.0.0.352_A08_01.EXE but it is still not working properly. It only works every other boot up and fails in the middle of sessions.
Is there a plan to fix this driver? Or are we on our own?
Thanks!

Answer:Windows 10 Creator Update Caused Inspiron 24-5459 WiFi to Fail

Windows 10 Creators update is another example of poor microsoft quality control.  It BREAKS more than  it fixes.
 
Qualcomm QCA9565 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth  DELL OEM driver was last updated July 20 2017.  
http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=Y8HRF
https://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER04327415M/2/Qualcomm-QCA9565-WiFi-Bluetooth-Driver_Y8HRF_WIN_10.0.0.352_A08_01.EXE
The only possible resolution would be to scorched earth reinstall Windoze 10 1703 clean and see if
everything works.  If not then do chipset drivers and then reboot then do usb3 drivers and reboot then do the QCA9565 driver and reboot.
I think this is a Qualcomm Atheros issue.   My fix for this with my clients is to rip out the adapter and smash it with a hammer on the sidewalk.   I then spend less than $20 to install a dual band 802.11 AC 600 adapter and a bluetooth adapter.

Resolution: Dell Inspiron 5459/5559/5759 BIOS Update - Will not boot after update
"No boot drive found", "PXE... Media test failure"
If you updated from 1.0.x to 1.1.5 (or other) and find yourself scratching your head in a panic that your system won't boot up, reboot and press and hold the F2 key when you see the Dell logo (shortly after restart). When the bios settings page opens, click restore settings to default, save, and then exit. Your system should boot to windows now :-)
If you don't care about default Keyboard LED brightness or Fn Lock key default status, disregard the following:
After your system restarts into windows, restart and repeat to enter bios. There are some minor settings that change -- They are minor and don't affect performance.  Under System Configuration, Keyboard brightness changes from dim to bright. Under Post Boot, Fn lock key changes to unlocked.
Have a nice day. Hopefully if you're reading this you already figured that out on your own.

Are you using an original Dell Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible? Could you check this adapter on another system if possible? When you press the power button on the system, do you see any leds come on atleast for a second or two? Does the light on the adapter stay on and stable when connected to the system or does it go off?

I have a weird issue with my G550 (which is out of warranty).  The screen flickers and distorts (fuzzy colours around objects on the screen).   If I flex the case in a certain way the problem goes away, it's hard to describe but if I apply pressure in a certain direction to the back left of the case it solves the issue... but as soon as I stop applying pressure it goes away.  I'm thinking it's a loose connection somewhere between the GPU and the display, but I'm not entirely sure where to look.  If I plugin in external displays they work fine, no flickering or distortion at all.

Answer:G550: Display flickers / distorts. External display fine.

hi deicist,

Welcome to the Lenovo Community.

If the LCD screen flickers when you open or close the lid or if tilt the LCD screen on a certain angle then the problem lies on the LVDS or LCD cable (possibly got worn out by opening/closing the lid alot of times). If you're interested in fixing it, you can get spare parts here:

I am connected to the internet using a cable modem, but have one computer that will not receive bytes. I have reformatted the drive and installed windows XP and have replaced the NIC with a new one (using a different PCI slot). I get the usual messages when trying to use Internet Explorer--I have noticed the more I use it the more bytes are Sent--but none are being received. I have also used DOS to ping various web sites and the sent bytes continue to grow but the receiving does not.

I have tried connecting it directly to the cable modem, using a Cat-5e cord that does work, and still no luck--any thoughts?
 

Answer:NIC not sending or receiving

So.....this is what im gathering...
You have 2 or more machines, and they seem to ping eachother. You have the connection shared but still cannot recieve data?

Or am I wrong, is it that you cant ping the other machine? Is there another machine at all? What operating system are you running on them?

Hi folks

I have Windows XP home SP2 on a Dell Vostro 200 and connect to the net via a BT Voyager 220v adsl router. My broadband tel no is also my fax number.

Up until now, I have been using an HP 6110 all-in-one fax/scanner/printer on which I have sent & received faxes manually, but I was hoping I would be able to use the Windows fax console to send and receive directly from my PC.

When I try to set this up it tells me it needs a fax modem? Can someone tell me exactly what this is?

Can I not set up my broadband router connection to act as the modem or does it need a genuine (what I thought was old fashioned) modem connections.

I'm hoping that a colleague would also be able to send/receive the faxes on a network and that I'd no longer need the printer fax as I have a better printer.

I'd appreciate any help

Best regards

Jesper

Answer:Sending/ Receiving a fax

Hi,
As far as sending a fax through a computer, the computer needs to have a 56k modem that can support fax. This modem can not be set up through broadband, it has to be setup through the actual telephone frequency like how your current fax is set up.

I am not sure if there is any program out there to send faxs online but there may be for a fee, but you can try to get a all-in-one or set one up so that you can send a fax to it from the computer but i am not sure if that is possible or not since i never tried it and it is just a suggestion to look into.

Sorry if any of my information is incorrect but i have not played around with the fax on a computer in awhile

Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

Answer:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

Click on 'start' and then type 'fax' into the search box. The top option will be Windows fax & scan' - select this and there's your faxing program. Before you can send/receive you will need to have set up your modem so that it can be used as a fax modem and ensure that it's recognised under the phone & modem section of Control Panel."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

If emails are received from four different people, is it then possible to collect these and then send them as one email to a different fifth person.
I know it is possible to send them indiviually.
Any helpmuch appreciated.

Answer:receiving sending emails

Either copy and paste the content into one new email or attach each one as an attachment into a new email and send that.
As far as I'm aware, you cannot simply join them together and forward the lot in one go.

This applies to only one computer (there are two in my house). For some strange reason, the internet on my computer just suddenly decided to stop working about two days ago. I checked the wireless network connection and it received absolutely 0 packets out of the 100 or so that were sent. When I clicked on 'support' and then 'details', the DNS Server part was completely blank, and my computer was telling me that my IP address was 169.254.71.42. I tried in the command manager ipconfig /flushdns, but that didn't solve anything. Also, I tried pinging google, but it came up with: 'Ping request could not find host. Please check the name and try again.'. Now, I have no idea what to do, and it is quite strange that this computer is working perfectly fine, whereas the other one is not. I'm running Windows XP, if that helps. Thanks in advance!

Hello, new to the board

This just recently started happening btw. I have a cable modem hooked up to a linksys router supplied by vonage. An Apple Airport wireless router is also hooked up to said router. I also have a rj-45 line hooked up to main pc. Until recently, I didn't have any problems connecting to the internet. I disabled my on board sound card via the BIOS because I was installing a new sound card. After that, I could no longer connect to the internet. The system tray shows that I am connected, but upon further inspection I am only sending, not receiving packets. Thinking it was a software error, I reinstalled Windows. Same problem. I know my router is ok because I have a mac that I use on it all the time via the rj-45 connection. I typed ipconfig /all in the command prompt and received what seemed to be a valid output. I had a valid IP address for my router, subnet mask, default gateway, etc. Thinking my NIC was fried, I tried connecting via a wireless connection. No dice, same thing. Here are my system specs:

AMD Athlon XP 2400+
768 MB RAM
Nvidia Geforce 6800 GT
Soundblaster Live 5.1
Windows 2000 Pro

My NIC is an Nvidia nForce ethernet controller. I also tried reenabling my onboard sound card thinking that was problem, but I still could not receive packets. I can ping my ip, but everytime I ping the router all of the packets are lost. I even tried connecting directly to the modem. Still nothing.

Since yesterday, April Fools, my msn freezes up for about 10 seconds when I send/receive an IM. First assumption would be this silly April Fools virus thing so I scanned and yes, I got 2 viruses, however, I deleted them and I thought my problems would be fixed but obviously not. So I tried re installing but nope.

I'm running XP2, WLM9.

I can't really get more specific. IMs take about 10 seconds for msn, it just freezes (the whole programme) for that long, then the message sends, then I read reply, etc, I send one then it freezes etc etc etc if I click too much while it's taking its 10 second break it freezes and crashes. Opening the main WLM and browsing through it and whatnot is fine. It's just the IMs, which is what I need it for.

Help please.

I'm sure I did it. My RAM was overloaded, so I looked for programs I didn't understand, tried to read their descriptions (in the "Settings" on the Task Master, and turned off a couple (that I can't recall). OK, dumb.

Now, Outlook 2007 stays stuck on "Preparing to send/receive" forever, with the dialog box either empty or full-green, but without doing anything. (I have 22 accounts, and all were working mid-afternoon. It's now 9p.m.)

When I go to each individiual account and ask for it to "send a test message," everything checks out fine, but nothing seems to happen in the "Outlook Send/Receive Progress" box.

Does anyone know which "Services" are required for Outlook to work? I disabled only a few, and only "manual" services like "peer" this or that...

I have found it very difficult to find an appropriate title to the problem I am raising.My daughter, who runs a small business from "home" has just moved to a new abode where the owner uses AOL Broadband. Her provider is One-Tel and she has the permission of the owner to use his broadband installation but wants to do so utilising her One-Tel email address. Unfortunately she is only able to receive emails this way (she uses Incredimail), not send emails. She has spent hours and hours on the phone to AOL and got nowhere. Can anybody suggest what settings are required to both send and receive emails in the way expalined above?

Answer:Sending/Receiving emails using another ISP

Use AOL's SMTP server settings in Incredimail's options for sending the email. That should allow her to send emails via AOL's connection. If they allow it. Else she could send her emails via One-Tel's web interface on their website, if they have a webmail option.

A wireless modem is connected to the router and it is working, it's just the LAN that does not work.

-turning on 'obtain ip address automatically' and DNS as well.
-resetting the router
-release and renew ip address from cmd
-turning off firewall

I'm assuming it is a wireless LAN adapter attached to the pc. And it successfully connected to the network. Is this correct?

Can you run "ipconfig /all" with only wired connection and paste the results here. And do the same with only wireless connection.
Can you ping the ip address of the router?

Hello thereSuddenly a new problem showed up this morning. It has to do with a computer which sent emails with attachments allright until yesterday. But from today, whenever I want to send an email with an attachment I get the following error. It is strange because if I send the same message from another computer in the same LAN, it does send the message successfully.The first computer which fails in sending the email has win vista and is using windows live mail to send emails.The second computer which sends messages successfully even today has Windows XP and uses Microsft Outlook Express to send emails.The problem with the first computer comes up when you try to send a message and instead of the message being sent you get an error which translated into English would be something like:Unkown error: Subject ", Account: "AccountName'. Server: "mail.accountname.com", Protocol: STMP, Servers' reply: '554 Sorry message looks like SPAM to me'. Port:25, Security (SSL): No, Server's error: 554, Error number: 0x800CCCGFIn conclusion, I am getting this error which seems to be related to the email server's spam filter policy. Nonetheless, this seems strange since there is a computer which can send emails with attachments from the same account without problems.I have to add that both computers have avast installed.Thankshttp://www.arreglaordenador.comIn-home technical services for computers to individuals and small companies.

I have a Yahoo email account and a Cox (Internet Provider) email account. I send & receive a great deal of emails from both. However, I frequently am told that an email I sent did not reach the recipient (from both accounts) + I frequently am asked, "Did you receive my email?" To which I reply, "No." None of my sent messages that do not arrive at their destination are returned or bounced back. They are just "out there" somewhere.

Of course, if someone sends me an email that I don't receive, I don't usually know it. Alternately, if I send one that does not arrive at its destination, I usually don't know that either.

Since I do receive & successfully send so many emails, why are some not being processed properly? At the suggestion of Cox, I uninstalled Zone Alarm & changed from Outlook Express to Incredimail. Neither made any difference. The emails that I do not receive are not always from the same person, & in fact, I might receive one email from a particular individual, but not receive the next one that same person sends. The same applies when I send an email.

Please help!
 

Answer:Sending & Receiving email

It would take a book to describe everything. We don't even know what OS and service packs, if any, you have?

Since you send "many" maybe your emails are being "received" as spam by various ISPs and thrown out before the recipient gets them. Maybe the settings on their computers are preventing them from being received. Do you send in Text Only Mode? Are there files embedded? Attachments?

Check all settings in your anti-virus and firewall. Turn off anything that is specifically for scanning email.

If you want to pursue this, you would have to provide detailed information about specific instances. That would include knowing exactly what the sender is using for emails and other programs that might malfunction.

Received 335.924 bytes.
Thats one of the readings I have gotten. A"expert" told me that there is supposed to be more bytes sent than received. Help!!!

Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600)
MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2
 

Answer:sending and receiving bytes

It really depends on what you are doing with the machine. If you are sending lots of emails, you may see the "sent" bytes are more than the "received" bytes. If you are downloading lots of files, then the received may be larger.

In either case, this is not likely the reason for your PC running slow. There are several things that can cause your PC to run slow. A few things to check:

Check free space available on your drive. Clear temporary internet files, temp files.
Download a program called "HijackThis" from here: http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip (unzip the file and run the program)
Do NOT fix anything just yet - click the "Save Log" button and post your log here. There are several experts stalking these forums for an HJT log to scan They will reply with which items you can remove, or if you do have spyware, how to get rid of it (even if it means you have to download more programs...)
After removing all spyware, run a "chkdsk /r" from a command prompt (your PC will tell you that you need to reboot before it can do this. Save anything you are working on and let it reboot.)
Run a defrag on your C: drive - let this run overnight, it may take a while.
Reboot after the defrag and you should be OK, as long as you have enough free space on your HD.

Is this a bad video card?  Resolution 1280X1024 at 60Hz.The flickering comes and goes but is mostly in bad condition.I knd of reminds me of a flourescent lamp flicker but does not have an overall affect on the rest of the monitor so I don't think it is the display lamps.It looks like a ripple through some of the open windows, especially if they are light colored.All Help will be appreciated.

Answer:Text flickers below the icons on my desktop

Well the 2 possibilities are the monitor...or the card itself...Try another monitor to rule that out.

Any ideas please - a freind is using Outlook Express (5.5)to send mail (like me) and he can receive mail but not send. when a message is sent everything looks as if the mail has been sent, no error messages are provided, all appears to be normal, but none of his messages are received by anyone.He insists on using Netscape Explorer, but is using Outlook Express. This used to work OK, but at some time produced this unable to send problem.Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Answer:Outlook Express receiving but not sending

which ISP does your friend use?You need to check the setting in outlook express for the smtp server name in tools/accounts/properties/serversIf they are leaving the outbox with no error messages then the emails are going to the mail server of the ISP but something is wrong there.

I have lost the program that allows me to send attachments (i.e. jpeg) When I send something out it changes form to a .dat file and duplicates itself to the person I am sending it to. (many times) Also when I click on an incoming attachment I get the following message: The system cannot find the file specified.

I do not know where to find a program or which one I should use for opening the files. I am using ME Outlook. I had a digital camera program installed and it wanted to take over all of the opening of all my attached files...it seemed to mess up my system so I uninstalled that digital camera program and must have deleted the other program.

Can I get out of this mess? Thanks for any help.

My laptop's connection to my router was working but stopped working a week ago. Packets are sent but not received. Is this a configuration issue or a virus issue? Running Windows 2k

P.S. On a perhaps related issue my wireless connection stopped working a few days before my hardwired connection, giving me a Code 10 error. That's why I went hardwired to try to search for a problem to the wireless connection. After being hardwired for about 2 days, that conked out too.

Things I've tried:
-Use Opera browser instead of IE - no change
-Access the router from another laptop - works fine
-Try a new ethernet cable - no change
-Run ccounter, spybot, AVG - no change

Note: I could not run panda or bitdefender because I do not have an internet connection. I am using my local library's computer to research and download possible repairs.
 

Answer:Sending but not receiving packets - hardwired

Further to the original post, I've run (in safe mode) ccleaner, GetRunKey, ShowNew, SpyBot, AVG, and HijackThis (under the name analyse.exe).

Just got home from work and Outlook is not sending or receiving any emails - when I press send/receive button nothing happens. Poss a service provider problem (f2s)? I did download and install Network Magice last night but shouldn't cause a problem? Also was fiddling with my router settings (Netgear DG 834) but can't see anything amiss. Ideas anyone? Maybe I'll reboot and see if that fixes it.

Is it possible to send a secure, encrypted e mail using Yahoo mail.
What does thee recipient have to do to read it?
Thanks.

Answer:Sending/receiving encrypted e mails.

To send encrypted email, you need a "key pair". One is a private key and should ONLY be known to you and reside on your computer. The other is a public key, which is the key that others have to decipher your encrypted email.
This is an article I wrote a while back explaining the system within Linux, but the operating system is irrelevant. The principal is the same for Windows or MAC.
Unless Yahoo has done something specific to block encrypted emails, the transmitting service you use should be irrelevant.

Can anyone help?

I haven't had any email since 6pm last night, and normally I get quite a lot. It doesn't look like there's anything wrong; I'm not getting any error messages and it performs a full and complete send and receive for each of the four accounts I have plugged into it (these are all from different POP3 providers too).

I sent some emails out to inline accounts I have and although it says they are sent and everything looks totally normal, they never get there.

I am totally stumped. Can anyone advise me on something to check? It worked perfectly for most of the day yesterday.

Thanks!

Hello rashidkeezhal, I'm not a mail expert but we will need more info to try and help you. What email client are they using? How are they accessing these emails? this is not happening to everyone, only a few have problems? is there anything unique about the users with problems you can identify?
