RE: Optiplex 9010 AIO Screen goes black and freezes on logout.

Adam,

Your post about how windows is being loaded sent me back to the drawing board and I found something interesting.  First though, I do have to apologize I thought we tested a windows install from disk, but apparently we did not so I was wrong about the black screen happening.

So.. I decided to test all angles. 

Win 8.1
- loaded from disk with all default drivers
- Logged on and off 50 times
- Did not Crash


Win 7 X64
- Loaded from disk no drivers installed (left default)
- Logged on and off 50 times
- Did not Crash

Win 7 X64 
-Loaded from disk (drivers installed from dell support site)
-Logged on and off 50 times
-Did not Crash

Win 7 X64
-Imaged using Symantec Ghost
-Logged on and off 11 times
-Crashed

 

I'm going to look at a few other things today but I wanted to go ahead and get this posted.  Because I think you might be on to something.

Then at this point I say we compare contents of the image and find out what additional components may be causing the issue with the hardware in the 9010 AiO. We have pretty much this same build on other workstations and haven't seen this issue repeat itself. 

Here's a dump of Add/Remove Programs on an affected machine here. How does your's compare?

DELLOSD 1.0.0.11 is also installed but for some reason didn't come out in the export using WMIC.

RE: Optiplex 9010 AIO Screen goes black and freezes on logout.

Since DELLOSD stuck out like a sore thumb, I removed it.

Since then I've been able to logon/logoff 50 times without incident. 

You got that in your image?

RE: Optiplex 9010 AIO Screen goes black and freezes on logout.

Funny you mentioned DELLOSD.  I thought that looked very odd as well.  Im reimaging one the machine again.  I will get you the software dump but from the looks of it we only have a couple of similar items. 

Im in the process of imageing this machine using SCCM.  I expect to get similar results considering its the same image just a different deployment method.  If I do get it to black screen I will try it without the dellosd software and let you know.

Were getting very close to solving this I believe!!

I forget to mention. I do not believe I installed the DELLOSD driver with all of my disk test.  So if were on the right track that could be why those worked so well.

RE: Optiplex 9010 AIO Screen goes black and freezes on logout.

Well I checked and it appears Dell released version 1.0.0.11 of OSD on 7/9. On 7/22 version 1.0.0.16 was released. hmmm...

I'm not sure if 1.0.0.16 fixes whatever was causing this issue, but removing 1.0.0.11 altogether sure seems to.

I am going to re-install version 1.0.0.11 and see if it breaks things again.

If it does, I am going to install 1.0.0.16 and see if it fixes the issue.

If it doesn't, we will remove this altogether from all 9010's.

RE: Optiplex 9010 AIO Screen goes black and freezes on logout.

Reinstalled v 1.0.0.11. Crashed after 4 logoffs.

Uninstalled v1.0.0.11. Rebooted. Installed v 1.0.0.16 (note: running the 1.0.0.16 .exe over an existing 1.0.0.11 install will NOT update the application).

I've had 50+ successful logon/logoff's since updating to v 1.0.0.16.

This appears to have solved our issue with 9010's locking up at logoff: Remove DellOSD v 1.0.0.11. Install 1.0.0.16 (or don't use DellOSD on the Optiplex 9010 AIO period).

hallelujah

hope it fixes your issue also.

RE: Optiplex 9010 AIO Screen goes black and freezes on logout.

Yes sir!!  I got the exact same results!!  Excellent work buddy!! 

Thank god because we were just about to create a project to replace 900 of these 9010s and it appears we probably would have still had the same issue.

Have a good one!

RE: Optiplex 9010 AIO Screen goes black and freezes on logout.

We are experiencing the same issue. We have over 500 Optiplex 9020 AIO i7 and we have over 10 PC's that if a user walks away and it locks or locks on its own after time, it will freeze and user cannot use their keyboard or mouse. They have to reboot manually, that is the only fix.

I have tried all drivers including BIOS A14, chipset and all, nothing seems to fix. I am afraid it might be a motherboard issue. Still nothing from Dell on this?? Wow!

RE: Optiplex 9010 AIO Screen goes black and freezes on logout.

After updating the OSD drivers to fix the black screen issue and then updating the chipset drivers to fix USB devices from not loading we seem to have everything working properly.

Is the screen going black like what I was experiencing or is it just frozen at the lock screen?
