A few days ago, a black screen with white text appeared on my laptop giving me the option of starting up in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, Last known configuration that worked, or starting windows normally. When I attempted to make a selection, the computer was unresponsive, so I did an emergency shut down and attempted to start it up again. Afterwards it brought me to the advanced start up options screen. Now, I've tried starting up with each one, and each time it's brought me to the same blue screen of death with the stop code 0x000000ED, then shut off and restarted on it's own again only to repeat the process. At times, instead of the blue screen being flashed after the splash screen, the screen will begin to go almost completely white, starting from the edges and melting towards the center. you can barely make out what appears to be mozilla firefox, which is what I had running before it began acting up.Also, on one occasion, I turned of the wireless to see if that would have any effect, and a message flashed for a spalit second saying "starting memory dump", then restarted and did what it did before.
My laptop is an HP pavillion ze2000 (ze2113us) and is almost 4 years old. If anyone could help me regarding this matter, I'd appreciate it.

Re: Blue screen...sometimes a white screen?
This error is caused by a bad sector or error on the HD. The best course of action to start with would be to either boot up from a windows XP CD or you can try going into safe mode with command prompt. Once you get to a command prompt you will want to type the command chkdsk /r. This will run a scan of the hard drive and repair any issues it is having. If you are booting from an XP CD you will want to choose the options for repair and go to the repair console. For further information please read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297185

Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They also appear smaller, so more items fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items fit on the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images might have jagged edges. Please follow the steps below on how to adjust your screen resolution.
Windows XP 1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
2. On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply.
3. When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. Your screen will turn black for a moment.
4. Once your screen resolution changes, you have 15 seconds to confirm the change. Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to your previous setting.
Windows Vista/7 1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.
Notes : When you change the screen resolution, it affects all users who log on to the computer.
When you set your monitor to a screen resolution that it won't support, the screen will go black for a few seconds while the monitor reverts back to the original resolution.
Yeah, I have this exact same problem, except my mom slammed my laptop shut in frustration around half an hour ago, so that's why it's like this. The right half of my screen is black with two colorful stripes (mostly white), but the left half is visible. I've researched a bit and found out that this is because the LCD in your monitor has burnt out, and since you don't have a monitor to attach, the only thing you can do is to go to where you bought the laptop and either get it fixed for free or return it for a brand new one (if your warranty still stands). If not, you might as well get a new laptop. I think my warranty has expired, so I'll get a new laptop, hopefully.
There are a few things you can check.
First, try to see if the monitor cables are firmly connected on both sides (computer and monitor) no need to remove any cable for now just check the monitor cables (ends should be blue or white on both sides)
Then check if you got an imput button on your screen (like all TV and some monitors now has) This input gives you the choice between a few possible connections and it may be on the wrong one. Just cycle trough the input modes and I think you will have your image back.
If Still, you dont see anything, try a different monitor or try to connect your monitor on a different PC/laptop.
In fact blinking blue could be there because the monitor is awaiting a signal on the input it's listening. At worst it could be because your video chip/card dont send a signal to your monitor, could happen, but imo it's probably not the case.
Go to => http://www.samsung.com/us/ Type 910mp in the search dialog box. Select Download English Manual. It's about 20mb. The manual has instructions for setup including adjusting your monitor. There is even a section troubleshooting and a self-test. Good Luck.
Check with www.lcdrepair.net if you want a repair. Something is wrong with your LCD controller and or GUI interface circuit or the circuit supplying power to it. If your technically endowed, you may want to open the monitor case and clean the dust and lint from around the circuits using a Small paint brush to sweep away any built up dust. These circuits take the Signal from the computer and controls the 2.5 million pixels on the LCD screen. Dsut can cause major problems with handling all that data. Give it a shot, what do you have to loose, its not dangerous if the monitor is unplugged.
