Here's what to do:
first find a way to hook up to and external monitor and see if the picture is the same
if so then its a ruined motherboard which is too expensive to repair
otherwise its a screen or a ribbon cable that connects to a screen
that can be fixed at a store or if you know how to then by a screen off ebay and put it in
but first find out if its a cable or screen

Laptop screen blank all white


Either your LCD Video Cable is not plugged in snuggly or the monitor is slowly going bad. The fact that you can see the images on an external monitors says your Video Graphics Card is working fine. You'll need to disassemble the laptop to get to the cables. Get a quote from your local computer shops, then try the guys at: http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com Most times they will fix it and ship it back by Fedex or UPS cheaper than any quote you obtained including the shipping.

Can you check the function buttons and make sure the primary display is set to show the output on the laptop. Try repairing your OS. If not then re-install the os. As you are saying till the time windows gets loaded, all works fine so it seems the issue isn't really the hardware.

SPLIT SCREEN


First, plug a external monitor and toggle the screen with ALT+F5 to check that the video card and software are working correctly.
If the image is correct in the external screen you have a hardware problem, in the LCD or its cabling.
You can get the replacement parts here and change it yourself:
