Sounds like a system board failure to me. The white line alone could just have been a damaged screen causing pixilation - a common fault that develops into multiple lines. But the symptoms you descibe of the power light coming on but nothing else happening point to the system board. Before anything else try taking ALL the power off the machine ie remove battery and power lead. Press the ON button for a second or two (sounds stupid I know, but do it) if that is still no go then it is most likely a system board failure

It's really not worth the effort of replacing the system board unless you can get a good used one.
Just buy another laptop and get your data transferred. Go for a used Dell D610. Excellent machines, about 4 years old now but I sell loads and NEVER had a problem. Good build quality, unlike most of todays laptops

White screen


If you see the white as soon as you hit the power button (or within 5 seconds of doing so), your Motherboard is the problem, meaning that you'll have to replace the laptop. If it turns white like 10-30 seconds after you hit the power button, then it's the software, meaning that you'll have to either replace the hard drive, or reinstall the OS.

Laptop Screen White


Yup. Bad lcd. If under warranty, have the manufacturer replace it. If not under warranty, visit ebay for the least expensive lcd's. Won't find them cheaper anywhere else. Just buy from a seller with a decent rating. Some are offering 100-120 day warranties on new lcd's. You can also find used ones there, as is.
