Laptop screen help

by 324343128 / November 6, 2017 6:30 PM PST

My laptop generally works good, but recently, whenever I close the lid or wake it up from sleep, this screen appears, any tips? I've tried updates, reboot, and scanning for hardware changes, but none of it has helped.

Use Hibernation instead.

This can be a failure or just a bad driver. If you install drivers from other than Dell, for example.

-> Hit, put in your service tag and I can't guess what driver system they use today but use Dell's offer for drivers next. If they offer a Dell update system, use that. If drivers ala carte then install the latest BIOS, motherboard then audio and video drivers.

I most often run into this with folk that installed PC acceleration apps, registry cleaners and driver finders. In other words, stuff I never use.
