White screen usually means you have a loose video cable to your LCD. This happens w/ laptops a lot because they are mobile and get opened/closed all the time. In some rare cases the cable itself may be bad but that is rare. If your savvy, you can remove take the LCD apart, remove the LCD from the rails and simply reattach the cable and tape it down w/ packing tape, otherwise take it in for someone to take it apart for you.

DELL VOSTRO LAP DISPLAY PROBLEM hai when ever i switched on my laptop it displays an empty screen with white color . i didn't get why its shows like that please tell me about that problem

Your backlight is defective. Try plugging your laptop into a regular monitor and usually by pressing FN+F5 (may change via different laptops. See manual or view F keys) you can view your OS. If you can, you only need to replace the screen and you will back to norm. You can order a screen from Good luck
