Laptop screen starts up white and stays white

Q: Laptop screen starts up white and stays white

I have the same problem When turning on the laptop screen goes to white I can hear windows starting but cannot see anything I Laptop white starts and white stays screen up connected it to an external monitor which will only display once windows has loaded I then took the whole laptop apart and discovered the LCD cable was frayed due to a faulty laptop hinge I replaced the cable and it was the same just white The problem I think is with the motherboard Laptop screen starts up white and stays white and the intergrated video card Upon taking the whole thing apart I noticed that where the video card plugs in is right where the heat sink is and the cooling fan which gets exceptional hot I figure it has fried the board to the extend the monitor will not work where it is plugged in but the external monitor will work but only when windows boots So sad to say because of the the heat this laptop puts off and if you have it sitting on your lap or bed or anywhere else that it cannot cool properly it has over heated and you will have to get a new motherboard Moderator note Moved from this thread - http www techspot com community t up-white-and-stays-white post- nbsp

Preferred Solution: Laptop screen starts up white and stays white

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

"I connected it to an external monitor, which will only display once windows has loaded"... This is normal behavior because the video signal to the external monitor is not sent until Windows loads. If you can see normal video, the motherboard video chip is good

My Hp pavilliin g7 series laptop running windows 7 home starts up with white screen and no beeps or sounds . Started freezing on Hp logo screen last week only sometimes. Id turn off and it would work on second try. About a year and a half ago I used laptop to preview windows 8. And after I reinstalled windows 7 it has been acting funny. Ie freezing and louder fan noise. I did recently update the bios and a pci device driver that never installed. But now it has white screen this morning. I shut off and powered up and still white.
I took off battery and pressed power for 10 sec plugged back in and still white. Still no noise.
Any ideas?

Can anyone please tell me why my laptop screen turns white and stays that way when i start up?
 

A:screen stays white

Hi steveicw

Just guessing here but it sounds like the LCD screen isn't working. Basically you are getting the backlight on with nothing in front to change the display. Is there anywhere on the laptop that you can plug in a external monitor and see if the system is booting? I had one laptop like this where the external display worked fine but the screen was all white. Replacing the display fixed the problem. Laptops are expensive and hard to fix. You may need to take it to a repair shop. BOL

A:Screen Freezes and turns white or white with stripes

Then maybe it isn't freezing at all. Maybe there's a problem with your monitor, vga cable, or video card.

Try a different monitor/cable and see if that changes anything. If it doesn't, then try reseating the video card--if any--and if that doesn't work I suggest getting a cheap one from someone's old pc at least to test with.

Installing a new video card can be complicated, but google search for a guide or follow the setup instructions for the video card to the letter and you'll have no problems.

I have read and tried many different suggestions, but I have no idea what is going on. The white on my dad's laptop is showing up with thin aqua vertical stripes in it. I have tried many different things (system restore, updating drivers, etc) and nothing has worked. The only thing that helped a little was when I calibrated it and it made the white in the window look white, but everything on the desktop that was supposed to be white, was not.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on here?

Hello,

I have a compaq presario laptop, about 2 or 3 yrs old. My screen keeps going completely white w/ small lines shooting across the screen where you can see the regular screen. Whats weird about it is..I don't have to reboot or anything like that..depending on how wide I open up my laptop...it stops. Not that I try to use my laptop w/ it half closed or anything..lol But even when its at a 90 degree angle it goes white and it won't stop until I open it up some more and then it goes away. This has started happening a lot more often now then it used to. Can someone tell me why its doing this?
 

A:My Laptop Screen Keeps Going White!!

Sounds like the interface cable between the LCD panel in the lid and the motherboard has an broken conductor or two in the area where it passes through the hinge. It only makes cood contact through the break at certain angles of the lid. Depending on the purpose of the voltage or data signal passing through it, it could cause different symptoms such as the ones you mentioned.

A:Laptop Screen Turns White

If the external monitor is fine, then you know the problem is from the mother board cable connection to the screen itself.  The problem point for notebooks is where the cable goes through the hinge.  You could try to wiggle that to see if the picture changes. The other possibility is that the connection from the cable to the screen has come loose and the final solution I can think of is that the screen itself is bad.

Hi,

My Dell laptop's only a year old, and its started randomly going white, with faint lines across it occasionally. I've found that I can fix it temporarily by pressing the F1 key (which doubles as the toggle between monitors). Anyone know what the problem is/how I can fix it?

Cheers

I have two white lines down my monitor. They always appear when the monitor is on, but not when the monitor is off. Any ideas? I can't take a screenshot of it, so it isn't an OS thing (I think). I'm using Windows XP SP2.

Hi Guys
The other day while using my dads laptop, i closed the screen, and on reopening it, it displayed a blank white screen.

I turned it off and back on again. It seem to be booting normally until it was time for the desktop to load, at which time the white screen returned. It boots in safe mode and i tried a system restore, which was unsuccessful.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Laptop boots to White Screen

Go back in through safe mode, disable Hibernation in your power management settings, and then look for and delete a file called hiberfil.sys.

Restart your laptop and hopefully it will spring back to normal - however you will lose what you were working on as it went into hibernation.

Microsoft have produced a fix for the Hibernation bug somewhere, if you need to use Hibernation that is.

Please try this at your own risk, as you may have to restore/reinstall XP if it doesn't work. Backing up vital data is important.

My computer was working fine the last time I successfully used it, which was about 24hrs ago. Today, I opened the laptop, and when the screen turned on, it was solid white.  Tried CTRL+ALT+DEL, Windows key, etc but computer did not respond.  Had to hold down power button to restart -- screen went straight to white when it turned back on.  Tried to get to Safe Mode by restarting again and pressing F8, no luck.  Tried letting the computer just sit with the white screen, nothing happened. I honestly have no idea what could have caused this.  No error messages, no recent updates or installations, etc.Any suggestions?

I have a toshiba satellite laptop. During use the screen has started going pure white. The only way to get the display back is to turn it off and back on again. It often flickers. I think it is a connection issue. Is there a way I can check this myself ?
If I plug another monitor into the back when in this state, the other monitor shows the display with no problems, so I don't think it is the video card or motherboard. Any ideas and is it possible to

Dear Customer,  1)  To determine whether its the Drivers or the Hardware Screen, please try to go the BIOS by tapping F10 Key at the Start up.a) If you see the same white screen on the BIOS screen aswell. It could be a screen issue.b) If you see BIOS screen, then the screen and the laptop both are fine. 2) To connect to external monitor you have to use VGA cable connecting from your laptop VGA port to the external monitor.NOTE: Make sure its a working monitor. Please go through the below document:http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-2000-Notebook-PC-series/5145724/model/5180004/document/c03504...  Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee

So, when I use my laptop, the screen randomly goes white for a few seconds at random times, I haven't tried anything yet but I am sure it is not software related at all as it once happened on the start up on the bios splash screen, my laptop is a Fujitsu Lifebook AH530 using integrated graphics.

With no actual Windows 7 errors of any kind (? and 7 is running fine otherwise?) and sounding like it's a serious hardware problem:

When using my dell laptop, the screen will get quick tiny color lines and then go white blank and the only way to get it back up is to close my computer and wait about 2 minutes and sometimes I have to do this several times. This usually only happens if my computer is not plugged but also happens when it is just not as often. Any suggestions you have would be awesome! Thanks!

I have a Philips Freevent X54 laptop 2gb memory + Nvidia Go 7400 graphics card. It's worked perfectly since I've owned it (2+ yrs). Suddenly this week I am having trouble with the display.

50% of the time it boots to a completly white screen. The rest of the time it displays white or multicoloured vertical line randomly all over the screen and then I get the blue screen of death complaining of a memory error.

I can sometimes boot to safe mode with vga display mode. I have tried updating the display drivers but it made no difference.

If anyone can give me any advice I would be grateful.

Cheers

Don't connect to the mains, make sure your X54 is shut off and try removing the battery for about 20 seconds then put it back. You may just have a static build up, it happens occasionally, anyway something you could try first. Has worked for me on occasions.

Yes Tariq_01. That indicates for the replacement of the display panel.Before that, I suggest you do a hard reset.Shut down the system.Unplug AC adapter, disconnect it from laptopDisconnect all the external peripheral devices attached.Remove the batteryPress and hold POWER button on the laptop for 15-30 seconds.Wait for few minutesConnect batteryPlug in AC adapterPower on.If this doesn't help, only option left is display panel replacement.

Hi,

I just replaced my LCD screen. Now when I'm booting it up, all I get is a white screen. I have an external moniter connected with an HDMI cord, but that moitor is not reading anything also. Any idea what's going on? In case it's important, before replacing the screen, I did see a blue screen pop up. I completely shut down the laptop when that happened, then replaced the screen.

Thanks for your help!!!

A:Vertical white line on the laptop screen

Hey Patrizia,Welcome to the HP Forums!The first steps that you should attempt is to make sure that the vertical white lines do not appear in the BIOS. To do this I have included the steps below.1. Turn off your computer2. Make sure you have connected the power cable3. Turn on your notebook, as it is starting press the  F10 button repeatedlyOnce you are in the BIOS, if the lines are still present, it is likely a hardware failure. The next two steps may resolve the issue. The first one is to do a hard reset. I have included the document 'Performing a Hard Reset or Forced Reset'. The next and final step is to perform a BIOS update. I have included the information here for you 'Updating the BIOS'.Let me know if the issue does not appear in the BIOS.Hope this helps!

A:Laptop Screen turns White / Rainbow

Since no one has any info here, I'll post what I learn. Might help others.

Since the backlight is working fine, it is not and Inverter or a Backlight Issue.
And I can hook it to a external monitor (when my screen is knocked out) and it works fine. Thus motherboard and video card are fine as well.

That leaves us with the LCD wiring / cable and the Panel in itself.
I have decided to wait for a few days before I take it to a tech because I do not move the panel at all and it seems to be stable for now.

Will update.

Well, when i logged in, the Webroot Security said it will expire in 3 days, i dismissed it...opened up minecraft, being the second day after 1.8, I destroyed a block in minecraft, and my computer crashed with a white screen and blue stripes going verticly down. I panicked and spamed the ctrl alt del, ctrl alt, esc, then unplugged t, and took out the battery in panic.
Now whenever i turn it on, it gives a black screen, it still runs but it doesnt do anything more. Can i please have any suggestions, tips, tricks, and or help on getting around this?

Edit: Forgot to mention it is a Toshiba, model no. PSK2LU - 001003

A:Laptop crashed with white screen and blue stripes

Hi explosm357 and Welcome to TSF,

How far the boot process do you get? I'm just curious as to if you see anything at all in the beginning, the black/white text?

As my first thought it's a hardware issue, so i'll move it over to the hardware part, so we can still use this thread.

You could try another monitor, and try tilting the screen up/down to see if it reacts in any way. Does the PC turn hot if you have it on for a while?

It's either a GPU or PSU fault i'd suspect.

I have a lenovo laptop,Z580 Today out of nowhere the whole screen turned white. I shut down the laptop but when i tried to reboot,The screen was still white.Something told me to just remove the battery and see if that would at least get it to boot and here i am,However,the battery is currently out. What could be the problem?Will it happen again? I only have a month left until work starts again,Can't have it breaking </3

A:Lenovo Laptop Screen Turns White Upon Boot?

Hmm sounds like you may have a monitor problem mate - can you get into safe mode?? if you can run these
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Disk Check < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

NB SFC best run for about three runs

if no go then do these
SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!
Malwarebytes | Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium
AdwCleaner Download
ADW download from bleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans
(NB If one is running Kaspersky security it may rant about ADW - just ignore it or disable Kaspersky while the ADW is being used)

One last thing try leaving the battery out unplug form the power source and hold down the power button for around 10-20 seconds and then power up again.

Not likely a general firmware flaw as I've not seen this discussed before. Unless reflashing the bios helps (so you have a corrupted bios) or resetting the firmware to factory default settings then I fear a hardware fault. Sounds like something to do with the screen rotation mechanism as connecting a second monitor as the primary will force landscape rotation (simply disabling rotation may have an effect, may not). Thing is, this is happening before even the bios is fully engaged so it feels like a problem with the hardware mechanism/detector. Do try imaging the drive then restoring to factory install. Just in case it is the UEFI boot mechanism getting messed up. This is just my thinking. I may, of course, be very wrong. This is where I would start to work it out from though.

What operating system did you have before you installed windows 7?

what is your system specs?

Things that could be wrong

1. Loose connection between the video cable and the LCD screen.
2. Defective LCD screen.
3. Defective motherboard (I assume the graphics card is integrated into the motherboard).

While using my Gateway laptop it will frequently fade white and freeze. This problem is sporadic at times and constant other times. I cannot figure out a pattern to the problem. I am unclear whether this is a software or harware problem. All I really know is that it is really annoying. I am wondering if anyone out there could help me diagnose this problem. Sometimes, faded white lines appear on the screen and become more intense, depending on the amount of time it is frozen. The problem can last anywhere from a second to almost a minute. When it fades you can still see the the monitor picture kind of, but like I said it is blurred. Someone please help!

Hi

I have a Toshiba Satellite L300-PSLB8E. I initially bought it with Windows Vista already installed on it. After some years I changed the operating system to Windows 7 Ultimate. I installed the display and all other necessary drivers (i.e sound, network, etc).

After installing Windows 7, when I use the laptop for some time the screen goes all white and the laptop hangs. This happens spontaneously. Sometimes it happens in less than 10 min and other times it can work perfectly for hours on. I have checked for loose batteries and other components but everything seems fine.

The only physical damage it has is a tiny crack on the screen at the bottom right corner of the screen. Could it be that the operating system isn't good? Should I put back windows Vista as it was?

Please advise and assist me figure out what is wrong with the laptop.

A:Satellite L300-PSLB8E - screen goes all white and the laptop hangs

Before we start discussion can you tell me what you must do when this happen?
Hard shutdown and restart?
Is everything OK again when you do this?

It is not easy to say what is wrong exactly but I don?t think there is problem with OS and preinstalled display driver. Long time ago I?ve installed Win7 Home Premium on friends L300 and it works perfectly.

What you can test is to use external monitor for a while and see if everything works well. If yes, there is no problem with OS, drivers or graphic card. It can be than display problem.

Hello!

I am posting for my grandfather...he has an older gateway laptop that's giving him a bit of trouble. Whenever we try to boot it up, it shows the regular screen for about 2 seconds, but then there is a all white screen and the web cam light is on. I've tried the (esc) button and the task manager hoping that its the webcam software, but it does not work.

So the only time he can access his computer is if I go to shut it down, and then press the "cancel' button if it gives me the option, which is usually only when there is a program running.

His laptop has windows vista, which I hear tends to produce a multitude of technical issues...but is there any way that we can fix this issue without having to pay to upgrade it or pay to have it fixed?

6 inch thick white lines down my laptop screen. 2 of them are solid white the others are fairly transparent but very noticeable, spaced out across the whole screen. The laptop itself works perfectly and the lines have been there a long time. There was only 1 to start with but its gotten worse over time. I am using an external monitor and play games a fair amount without any problems. I am wondering is this a screen or inverter issue or will i need a new motherboard for my laptop for a new graphics chip?

If you know about how to open inside the laptop, first check out the connection cable is seated properly between screen and mobo. But mostly times, you have to replace screen. There is no problem on Motherboard and screen inverter.
