Inspiron 13-5378 Video streaming problem (Green screen)

Question: 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! (:

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?

Answer: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 think that is being caused by the Bluetooth.  You might try disabling it in the Device Manager or Bios to see if the entries stop.

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?

Answer:Video green screen problem.

Question: Inspiron 13 5378

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.

thanks

Answer: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?

Hi,
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.
Thanks

Answer: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 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 6.0.1.8029. 
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!

Answer: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.

Hello,  
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. 

Answer: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.

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!

Answer: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.

So, I'm baffled by this issue and it actually makes me wonder why the heck a company would do this. So, this computer is lightning fast because of its: DDR4 2133 MHz memory, SSD, and i7-7500u with intel HD 620 graphics. I'm half-way happy with it and makes a great school computer for I can write on it and it currently has no problems running the processing software required for my EE major. But I have a big issue with its processor safety precautions.
Just making it clear..... I didn't buy this laptop to game. I bought it for school and wanted to lightly game away from home because the components are suitable to do so.... or so I thought.

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.

Good Morning all:
I have a brand new Dell 5378..I have only plugged it in, done the registration and done the 2 downloads waiting. Then I get the APPLICATION ERROR: EXPLORER.EXE.  tHE EXCEPTION UNKNOWN SOFTWARE AT THE LOCATION 0X00007ff92467e5ec.  I've been my own tech for 25 years in my own business but i am afraid to keep this computer! Should I return it or do i need to do something to fix it on my own.  I can't believe it! Thanks for any help.  I have not put any software on it since i got it yesterday.  Is it explorer?  Should I use Chrome will that eliminate the situation?  HELP! thank you

Answer:Should i return it before i start using it? Error Dell Inspiron 13 5000 series 5378

This may not be your situation but I got a new Inspiron 17 and it Blue Screened three times in the first hour.  The dump file pointed to the Product Registration software from Dell.
I would give it some time to see if it settles down...  Mine has had no further problems since that initial situation.

Hello,
I have been using my Inspiron 13 5378 since December 2016. After working normally for few days my screen stopped auto-rotating. I sent my laptop back to Dell for repair and received it after a month in April. Very frustrating thing.
When I received the repaired laptop the auto orientation was working fine but it stopped working again after a couple of days.
I don't know what is triggering this but I have tried myriad of solutions available online including reinstalling chipset and sensor drivers, disabling and re-enabling sensors in device manager, setting sensor services to start automatically and much more.
But still, the auto-rotate feature is not working.
I don't want to send my laptop back to dell again for another month, please suggest any solution if you know it.
Thanks in advance!

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.

Answer: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.

I am getting this type of green band repeatedly on YouTube video's in IE 9 on Windows 7 64 bit if Nvidia is engaged. Not with the Intel graphics. I have removed Flash but it won't play or display therefore it using Flash 64bit is installed. I was not able to repeat the problem with Chrome. But lately I can't seem to get Chrome to call on the Nvidia GPU even though its selected in Nvidia Control panel. I ran the 32bit IE 9 or 64bit but the Flash will only install the 64bit version even though I tried to manually install it. (Adobe says that both are built into the same download and only applies the one). Chrome runs the video without Flash installed. Weird there! I've spent a lot of time already and need to get other work done. Anyone see this problem? Is there a Nvidia GPU/memory diagnostic utility? I am wondering if its GPU fault. I did not see this before and I know my MB was replaced from before. I am not getting this on MSN.CA video's.  Thanks

Hello,

I'm new here and I don't speak engish very well so please bare with me.
I have a Sony Vaio VGN-CR420E that I bought 2 years ago.
I used to have Vista and I recently upgraded to Seven Ultimate.

When I still used Vista my laptop had blue screens when streaming video. It doesn't happen all the time, sometimes I stream divX and youtube with no problem and sometimes it just crashes with no reason. I tried updating my drivers but everything is up to date.
So I thought that maybe the problems will dissapera when upgrading to Seven but I still have the same problem. Sometimes I can stream videos with no problem and sometimes I have crashed so I'm starting to wonder why this is happening.
p-s: I haven't yet experienced blue screens while playing video files already on my computer ( as in non streaming videos)

So this is my configuration:

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?

Answer:Blue Screen help while gaming and video streaming

Your dumps are reporting cache errors from the cpu, this could be caused for various reasons
First thing to check is that the machine is not simply overheating, install speccy or similar and check temps while at idle and then under load, you can use prime95 to stress test the cpu if you want
If temps are getting high then try cleaning out whatever dust/dirt that you can as quite often it is simply dust clogging up the cpu cooler/cooling fans not allowing enough airflow to allow the system to adequately cool

If temps are ok then other things you can try are resetting bios to defaults and/or a bios update
Updating chipset drivers

There are only two dump files in your upload its good to have more than this to check for patterns in the crashes please do not run disk cleanup or programs like CCleaner as these will erase dump files

I have a Dell Inspiron 12-5378 Signature Edition computer, and I recently bought SkullCandy Crusher headphones. The headphones do not seem to be working and are not even showing up in my playback devices. I'm wondering if there is something that I can do to get them working?
My other question is that the Mic Cable for the SkullCandy headphones is 3.5mm plug which seems to be sticking out a tiny bit when I plug it in. Is it possible that the computer isn't recognizing the device because the plug is too long? I can't seem to find any detailed specs on the headphone jack for this computer. If this is the issue, does anyone have an adapter they recommend?
Is the issue my headphones or the laptop?
Thanks

Answer:Dell Inspiron 13-5378 Headphones Not Working (with new SkullCandy Crusher headphones)

Hello. Push the plug extra firmly into the jack and see if it can go in the rest of the way.  When it is detected, you should get a popup asking you to select the type of device you are using.
There aren't any detailed specs from Dell about the combo jack, just general information that we pass along on this discussion board. We have been getting reports from owners that the jacks on some late model Dell are tight.

hi, need help..

i'm experiencing a major problem with video streaming or watching videos from sites such as yahoo, nba for morethan a week already; but has no problem watching videos from youtube, metacafe, & the likes or flash videos.

everytime i click a link to a video it doesn't load, and it will stay 1 or 0% all the time. clicking play does nothing. it's just stuck at 0 or 1%, play state is always stuck at "ready". whatever browser i use the result is still the same.

from what i know, nba & yahoo (like featured videos, news) either use Quicktime or Windows Media Player to load & play videos. my prob is it suddenly stopped playing videos for no reason. my media player is upto date, quicktime, realplayer & other codecs are upto date. just wondering why i can't view a video from those sites? does anybody know a solution? anything i need to do?

Ok I am a techy myself, and am no novice to compters. But this problem has stumped me cold in my tracks. Heres my info

Windows XP SP1 with patches dating up to SP2
VII 100Mbs/sec NIC Adaptor
Router disabled for this problem
Pentium III 1.7 ghz processor
1 gig ram
300 gigs HD's, partitioned, 150gigs free
Windows media player 10
DSL internet connection

When tring to stream a video, any video, any web site, though to the windows media player, it doesnt connect. It tries at first then just returns to the ready option. Refreashing the page does nothing but agravate me further. So here is where I started.

First I checked my nic, ping 127.0.0.1 -t, tried the video with that running and I got complete replies to my nic, the video never came up.

Then I thought, maybe my router is going bad, I removed the router and went from extenal modem strait to pc (rebooting of course). Tried the video again, nothing.

Thats all the hardware I can test, thus I moved on to software tests. I checked windows media player. I uninstalled it, and reinstalled WMP10. Once again, nothing.

Here is a stumper and maybe a root cause, while downloading the WMP10, I noticed I was only downloading at 40k/sec. Slow for even dial up, however I'm on DSL. AND the connection status screen shows a 100Mbs/s connection. Could have been the servers I was connecting to, but it was 1:30 in the AM, so I ruled that out.

This computer has streamed video perfectly before, and I dont think its the ... Read more

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?

Thanks

My system specs are below. I use XP home SP1 everything updated execpt SP2, including video and audio codecs. My browser is MSN premium and I use to be able to use MSN priemium to stream online video via mediaplayer on my last comp with XP home. Now when I left click it gives me three options: open file (which fully downloads in to a temp folder), save file, and download file later. There is no stream option.

How do I set left click to automatically stream with media player the video or even the audio link?

I am having problems with streaming videos from some, er, adult sites and also, intermittently, from the eminently respectable BBC iPlayer. The problem is continual buffering so the video plays in short bursts, which destroys the impact. Sometimes the buffer counts down which is equally odd. It does not seem to affect YouTube though. Is this a problem for my ISP, which is AOL? Suggestions welcome.

I consider myself to be quite good with networking, but I have stumbled across a problem which is starting to bother me. Basically what is happening is when I play any kind of video stream from any given site on the net, my internet connection drops and the only way to revive it is a power cycle of the router. I haven't had this problem until recently (past few months) and I have owned this current router (Linksys Wireless B router) for 3-4 years. I've gone over all of my router settings and everything is set properly. I thought to myself perhaps my router was blocking that video stream via a port block on my router. But this can't be since I even tried opening every well known port on my router (0-50k) for a few minutes to see if that would work but to no avail. Therefore I believe it could an actual router hardware issue. The conclusion I've come to is that I think the router's buffer is recieving the video stream packets in the router's buffer but cannot handle the flow and is discarding them, which in the process locks up my router and thus requiring a power cycle. I think it may be time to buy a new router! What do you guys think?
 

Answer:Odd video streaming problem...

Put a hub on the outside of the router and sniff the traffic. You might see something in there.

I'm having a problem playing any kind of imbedded streaming video. I first tried to watch a streaming broadcast, and the site told me I needed to download Media Player, which I already had. However, I thought I might need an update, so I downloaded the newest version (9) and it still didn't help. As you know, this version cannot be uninstalled, so now I'm stuck with it. I think there may be a conflict between Media Player and Real Player, but I'm not sure. Can anyone please help with this???

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.

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?
