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

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 everyone,

Last night my pc was working just fine, but this morning when I wanted to start him up I could smell a light burn. When I started the pc up(after checking that everything was fine inside), the screen came up white with colorfull stripes and then changed to a black screen with color stripes. Its the first time this has happened and I'm not sure if its the videochip or what. I've build the pc myself and had no problems for 2 years. The specs ar below:

Asus Crosshair Mobo
AMD Daul-Core 6000 Chip
4x1G OCZ PC2 6400 memory
Kandalf case with build in watercooling
Samsung 26" T260 monitor (please dont say its the monitor!)

I also considered the mobo, but I dont have the knowledge you guys have so I'll leave it in your capable brains.

Thanks for reading.

A:Black screen with colorfull stripes and then white screen with stripes?

I have the same problem, it was my video card. Try taking out the video card and putting it in a buddies system, then try putting theirs in your system. First make sure they are compatible though. That's the easy way to either say it is the video card or isn't.

Hey, im pretty new to this forum and i need some help. Well recently, my computer has some strange lines on the left side of the screen, and a large black dot near the bottom. I don't know what the problem is or how it happened, i tried restarting my laptop but its still there. I am using Windows 7, 64 bit on an Acer Aspire 4736ZG. The stripes also get in the way of the start button. I would post a screenie, but it's on the monitor itself and print screen doesnt capture it.

A:[HELP] White Stripes On Screen [HELP]

My guess is you need a new monitor. It could be a motherboard problem though too.

Try replacing the monitor, or if you have a PC you can connect to, try connecting the laptop to the PC and switching your display to the PC monitor. If the lines appear on the PC monitor, your problem will be motherboard related.

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 didn't really know where to post this. I'm new to this forum and I got a problem with my very old and bad PC.

Specs: (don't laugh)
Motherboard: Leonite-GL8E / ASUS P5LP-LE / leonite 5.00
CPU: Intel Pentium D 915 2.8GHz
GRAPHIC CARD: Idk how to check this without turning the pc as it doesn't load the windows?

Whenever I turn my PC white stripes appear on the screen while booting and loading windows then they change to blue. I had Windows 7 Ultimete x64 and a blue screen appeared all the time while loading the system and said something about graphic card. I then done a format to Windows XP as it didn't even let me instal new any Windows 7 system and the XP worked fine but the stripe were still there although only while booting.

There's few pictures how it looks. Please help.

A:White stripes on the screen while booting then blue screen.

Either power supply can't deliver enough power for graphics card or graphics card is dying but this white stripes indicate that it's probably second one.

Well you can check graphics card model by looking at it-you may recognize it;or there is a sticker on the graphics card from which you could read it's model.

Try to start in BIOS and leave the Screen on, see if it shows the same problem?
You could also start up in safe mode and wait till it shows tha problem or not.
In the first option no Windows is active and therefor no software related error can occur.
In the second most applications are out of order. you could also after start and exeute MSCONFIG command unselect all unnecessary startups and restart.
It could be your videocard or driver or your screen.

My HP Pavilion G4 laptop screen is white when I turn it on. When connected to an external monitor, it works fine. Any suggestions for the cause and a solution?

View Solution.

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.

A few years ago I purchased an HP x monitor from a friend About a month ago my screen went completely white and after some troubleshooting I determined that the problem was the monitor and not the video card I was about to put the monitor in the garage but with three kids my budget is Monitor White Screen turns tight and replacing it would put a strain on things so I went to HP s site and read about some Monitor Screen turns White folks who suggested turning the monitor upside down and tapping on the top would fix it Surprisingly this worked So after about a week when it happened again I turned the monitor upside down a few times and my screen returned This week when it happened usually when the computer is unattended maybe gone to sleep I merely had to tilt the screen forward and the picture would come back Also I noticed that the power adapter looks broken like it is coming apart as if my four year old child has stepped on it I am sure that it should be replaced and this is pretty doable for me One person suggested that something inside the monitor is loose and turning it upside down restores it albeit temporarily Should I start to save for another monitor because eventually this solution may not work anymore Or is it possible that the problem is being caused by the adaptor that is breaking apart and I might just have to replace the power adaptor Thanks in advance any insight into this issue would be appreciated justyermama nbsp

Today I upgraded my motherboard and when I booted it started up normally, showed the first second or so of the windows logo then went to an orange screen with white stripes, as in the picture below:

I have tried:
Booting into safemode
Replacing the GPU
checked the RAM
Rebuilt the MBR
Checked the partitions
Made Sure everything is plugged in

I have an SSD with windows on the C: and a HDD with a few programs on D: . I have ran the Windows recovery programs as well.

you would need to re-install windows and also the chipset drivers for the new motherboard - unless its identical to the old motherboard ?

is it an identical replacement ?

Working on my laptop for about an hour and closed it. Booted it back up 15 minutes later and opened Firefox...all of a sudden the screen started turning white.

Hi guys I am having a problem deducing the issue with a friend s laptop It s a Toshiba Equium U not sure the rest of the specs are relevant Basically the screen ONLY works if it is angled all the way back And it works perfectly fine in this position However if you try to angle the screen down in a closing direction the screen will immediately turn white You can then tilt the screen backwards again and press FN F shortcut for Laptop at most screen white turns angles alternate display and it will flash back to life again I assume that it is a cable connection issue And would rule out faulty LCD inverter if it works at one angle I have tried researching this and have only found issues where the screen turns black not white I don t have my screwdrivers with me and cannot open the Laptop screen turns white at most angles screen yet to check connections I am just curious if anyone knows if this behaviour is linked to motherboard etc Thanks in advance for any replies Josh nbsp

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.

When I turned it on it had some white stripes on the screen, as you can see on the attached screen shot (I drew the lines in Photoshop, since they donīt appear on a screen shot, but thatīs how it looks). Obviously this is because of the computerīs fall, but I would like to know if someone can tell me if this is could be a problem with the LCD-screen, the graphics card or some loose connection?

I know it may be difficult to say without looking at the computer, but maybe someone can make a guess?

"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

Welcome to TSF....

I would try first removing the video display drivers from device manager and then rebooting the computer to see if windows will re-install them.

Also downloading the drivers from the manufacturers web site for the video card might also be a good idea and try updating the drivers thru device manager.

Another thing is if you have another video card you might want to give installing that one to see if it fixes the problem...

A little something before I begin, I have an old Acer laptop, Windows XP and the screen is all ******, so I use a monitor to view the screen.

And this afternoon I was using my laptop and all was fine until there was a short circuit, all the appliances in the house was shut down.

3 hours later when I turned on my laptop the screen started acting up. One particular problem is my cursor, it had black and white stripes, and I never heard this happened before. Next is my screen which freezes very frequently and then it goes black and goes back to normal. This is getting annoying and I have no idea what is wrong. I did a system restore to yesterday's date and to no avail, nothing was changed. Freezing screen, blinking screen and black and white cursor.

Please help? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

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!

Greetings to all,
I have this annoying screen problem that has finally taken its toll on me. While doing anything online (Google, Email, Surfing etc) my computer screen will freeze and then go a white translucent color.
It happens across the board on anything I may be working on.
If I am in Google, and I'm also checking email, or working on an Excel Sheet, all 3 things will freeze and go white.

I have attached my HijackThis Log, as well as the DDS and Attach txt.
Please let me know if there is any other info that is needed to help me solve this annoying problem.

The freeze usually lasts a minute sometimes 2...and as you can imagine, when you're working at a frantic pace, having to stop and start is really annoying.
I have run all my antivirus software (AdAware, AVG, CCleaner) but nothing fixes it.

Hope someone can offer some help.

I have a Fujitsu-Siemens Scaleoview W19.

When I leave my computer for a good while (like overnight) and come back the monitor only displays a white screen. Restarting the computer or plugging the monitor in and out does not help. The only solution I've found is to turn the monitor off and on again until it works, and that took me about 50 tries last time.

So if anyone has any suggestions I'd be very grateful

A:LCD monitor turns white

1. Don't leave your computer on overnight?
2. If you do, at least turn off the screen. You can set it to turn off after a set period of minutes.
3. Buy a new screen.

I don't know whats causing the problem or if it can be fixed so best wait for some of the others to reply.

Have you tried the screen on a different computer and the computer on a different screen?

Hi, as I mentioned in the title my monitor has just completely gone white. It doesn't seem to be the graphics card, because I plugged in my laptop to the monitor via VGA cable and still it turns white. But I can't really confirm whether if it really is my graphics card or my monitor cause I don't have another monitor to test it out on.

A:Monitor turns white!

SO basically you have tried the monitor on two different computers? if this is true, in doing this did you use a different VGA Cable or the same one in both cases? Also does the monitor display it's on screen set up display when you press the control buttons?

I could be as simple as a bad VGA Cable, or it could be the monitor itself.

I have the same issue as another user on this forum. Not sure why, but his thread was closed -- despite not actually being solved.

A few important pieces of information:

- The LCD monitor can be revived by hooking it up to a specific laptop (in my case, the Acer that I'm using is able to get it back to normal again).

- Second, it is not an overheating issue -- as suggested in the closed thread.

- Third, it is not a fault with the backlight (also as suggested in the closed thread).

Finally, this issue began, around the same time that I was hit by a virus.

Is it possible for a virus to attack the circuitry of a modern energy star rated monitor?

... I've seen stranger things, in my time.

A:BENQ monitor turns white

This is usually the monitor or the cable. The fact that it seems to work on the laptop raises the possibility that it's the video card, but I notice you said "specific laptop" Does that mean that sometimes it stays white with other laptops? What is the refresh rate and resolution on the desktop?

I have a Benq T701 17" LCD monitor that works fine for about 15 minutes or so, then the screen will quickly disappear into a plain, bright white screen, and the monitor then goes into standby - the only way to restore normal operation is to leave it off for a few minutes and then it works fine.

I've tried it on more than one system and with a replacement video cable, but it's still the same.

Any ideas on what may be wrong with it?

Sounds like something in it is overheating........could have a repair look at it but usually not cost effective depending if its under warranty and how old it is.

I am so puzzled with this problem I have. I have Windows xp: Service Pack 3, and when I open Windows Internet Explorer 8, It turns white and closes almost immediately after I open it, or i'll open it and it'll turn white and stay like that for almost 10 minutes straight and do nothing. I tried resetting it in control panel, and it didn't help at all. Why doesn't it----referring to my browser;Windows Internet Explorer, work?

I purchased an HP Spectre x360 Convertible 13 about 1 year ago.A couple of weeks ago the Notebook started to freeze for a few seconds and pink vertical stripes would appear. It froze for about 3-5 seconds and then everything was back to normal again. But now it happens quite frequently and the screen also stays frozen for around 15-20 seconds. Usually I have no problem when I am just using word or excel, but when I am surfing the web or watching videos etc it happens regularly.What can I do? This is what it looks like:

Hi @danidano, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!I came across your post about the Notebook, and wanted to assist you! I have looked into your issue about your HP Spectre Notebook and the screen showing lines on Surfing the Web. Make sure your Windows Updates have been completed. Here is a link that could help. Try to connect to a monitor to see what happens. If the Notebook is not having an issue displaying anything on the Notebook screen, it is not a graphics card. Please get back to me how this goes. Thanks for being a part of the HP community. Please let me know if this help resolves the issue by marking this post as Accept as Solution.  Thanks.

Hi all,
i'm having some issues with my computer. There's no pattern, but if I try to transfer a large amount of data or try to convert a video file to another format the computer freezes. There are no entrys in event viewer logs. Only that the computer was not shutdown correctly. Attached you can see a pic from the screen. I tried to figure this out, but no success.
Do you guys have any idea?

I have a new laptop with a gig of Ram and very few programs on it It runs Vista I ve been building a huge mansion in Sims basic white in white red with X box gives 2 box suddenly Sims prog only and it s run just fine I have about items of CC and it still ran fine Yesterday I discovered I could change some settings and make the picture more detailed so I did so Things looked so much better but as I began having a display Sims 2 suddenly gives white box with white X in red box driver error message I figured I would see if mine needed updating I had trouble finding the right one but finally did on the Gateway site It said my driver is up to date Today I was testing out some new CC files and the game began crashing so I worked and found the bad files The game Sims 2 suddenly gives white box with white X in red box was working ok I began slowly putting some of the files I had removed back in to be tested I was trying to make it easier by renaming the downloads dir to downloads and making a new downloads dir At some point and I can t recall exactly when I began not even being Sims 2 suddenly gives white box with white X in red box able to load the game at all I d start it and before it even reaches the first screen I began getting this white box with a red box with a white X in it Nothing else will happen First I removed the files I d put into the new downloads dir No change Then I deleted the dl dir and renamed the downloads dir back to downloads in case there was a conflict though I couldn t imagine why there would be except they were in the same main directory No change This means that the problem has nothing at all to do with the downloads as the game crashes whether there is any CC in the downloads dir or not Now I can only assume there s something wrong with the increased detail settings and the display driver If this is the problem then Im really in a quandary as I can t get into the program to change the settings back HELP Thanks Jeanne nbsp

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?

Hi DougOh,

Let’s try few troubleshooting steps to check if issue gets resolved:

1. Try a clean boot to check if it would work, providing the link to do a clean boot for reference: How to perform a clean boot to troubleshoot a problem in Windows Vista or Windows 7
2. Go to safe mode and check if you get same error message. Please use the following link for detailed instructions to go safe mode: Safe Mode
3. Also follow the steps in the below given link and check if it helps: Log on process has failed to create the security options dialog - - Microsoft Community
4. You can configure the windows to ensure that minidump files are created, please follow the steps mentioned in the link: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD - Windows 7 Forums
5. With this information we can help: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions
6. Also, run the built-in diagnostics provided by the manufacturer on the computer to check if the hardware is working fine.

Please post back the results.

When I turn on my computer, the desktop goes white and the taskbar goes white in 4 seconds. When I open my task manager, it crashes too. I can't do any "run" commands or anything casue my taskbar is just frozen. Is it another explorer.exe crash? I've looked for the solutions but all of them say something about opening run and typing in something or cmd typing. I can't open neither of those. I can access google chrome through steam. It shows someone's playing something, I click on it and go to their profile to open steam. I can play steam games and stuff but I can't open everything through steam...
This seems like way worse than the average desktop freezing problems I've googled about.

Dear support,

On startup, all I get is a blank white screen. I can't see anything.

But, I can plug in a monitor and do everything else just fine.

I tried twiddling the drivers, but maybe I did it wrong or overlooked the right one(s). I tried a system restore, but that threw an error on restart.

I even dove in with my screwdriver to make sure no plugs got knocked loose (don't worry, warranties were long voided).

Please help.

HI Mike46, How did you remove the spyware and malware? I would try un-installing the video driver and reboot the computer and let the Windows XP Pro re-install the video driver and see if that works. If it does not then I would backup all of my important data and do a repair-install and you will need the Windows XP Pro install disk and your COA.

Run CCleaner then malwarebytes. Eliminate obvious malware. See what the issues are then..
Personally I would also uninstall Norton Internet Security, AVG and all toolbars, then install Microsoft Security Essentials, do a full scan.
You may want to run the Norton removal tool as well to remove all traces, registry entries, etc
Reboot pc after this, then I bet it will also run a lot better at that point..

My laptop will only display a white screen on its LCD. The VGA out to an external monitor works fine.

I took it all apart and found a broken wire in the vid cable from mobo to LCD (wire broke at hinge joint). Ordered a replacement and it did not fix the problem.

So, do I take it a step further and order an entire LCD display unit off ebay for $130? This laptop is a $400 jobber I bought 2 yr ago.

A:White screen - VGA out is ok

Could be the inverter card that rests in the back of the screen at the bottom. It is about the size of a ball point pen. You can usually replace it for $9.00 to $15 US, if you are good at disassembling the screen from the screen frame. Inverter cards are available from the manufacturer and are also found on eBay and other sites.
You start by removing the keyboard and the ribbon cable, but it sounds as if you already know how to get that far.

If so is it booting past the BIOS screen into Windows? What do you see on the monitor screen? If it's also white then it sounds like the video chip is failing and may need replacement. If the monitor gives a picture then it could only be the laptop screen needing reseating or replacement.

Your files should always be backed up against failures like this. If you cannot get your screen working then you can remove the Hard Drive from its bay underneath - instructions for most models are found by asking Google - and connect it via a converter cable to USB or to plug it in internally to a desktop's SATA port, giving access to your data.

I have a Samsung 204B monitor that failed yesterday with an all white screen. The monitor turns on and off OK, but is all white as soon as it turns on (I am sure it is the monitor as it does this when not connected to a PC).

I have viewed a few Youtube videos and websites suggesting bad caps or ribbon cables. I am curious if anybody here has actually repaired a monitor with the white screen problem?

Edit: I opened it up and found 3 capacitors that are bulging, so I will replace them first. Radio Shack was a complete waste of time, so I will have to buy them online.

While working on my computer, the screen suddenly turned white leaving me with no option beyond re-booting. After re-booting, there was no change in the screen. I, then, turned off the computer until the following day. At that point, I turned on the computer and it booted normally. Any idea what caused this problem? Thank you for your help. Jerry

Saying "while working on the computer" doesn't tell us anything.
Exactly what were you doing to it when the display issue occurred?

Is it still working okay now?

How To SOLVE

When this happens press CTRL SHIFT ESC all at once to open Task Manager. In the list of processes, look to see if "explorer.exe" is running. If it isn't we need to see what is stopping it.

It sounds like it ran a chkdsk to correct errors and fixed them. You can run it yourself and defrag your computer periodically. To run the check disk, open My Computer, right click on your system local disk and select Properties. On the Tools tab click the button Check Now.
Check the boxes and click Start. You will be asked to run the chkdsk at reboot, just click Yes. The check will run the next time your computer boots up. You can run the defrag later from the same Tools tab or from Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Disk Defragmenter.
