Question about Averatec AV3220H1 (AV320H1-01) PC Notebook

1 Answer

White Screen I was at work with my laptop on a table and it was working fine, I went away for ten minutes and when I came back the screen showed only white. If I hook the laptop up to a monitor, I can see the normal screen. I am able to get into the BIOS by hooking it up to an exterior monitor, but the laptop monitor stays white. I have not as yet attempted a boot CD (cannot try book disk as no disk drive) but will be shortly. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice? I don't know how to take it apart to check the cables, so if this would be the suggestion please steer me to a url where I can follow someone's expert directions. I tried posting this on the Unofficial Averatec Forum but have not yet received a response. Thanks in advance for your help! :)

Re: White Screen

It could be the graphics driver or the monitor. If you had a screen saver on or had the notebook set to hibernate, turn them all off first. If you are able to view via vga port then it could be a screen problem as the driver for graphics probably would give a problem on the vga also but it's worth trying firstly a system restore in case windows has updated the driver to a generic one, which can cause prioblems. What is unusual is you have to set your desktop on the notebook to allow an extended view to your external monitor or a dual view, but your allows it automatically, normally this would have to be done from your notebook desktop view. If no change try to uninstall the graphics adapter. Go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and in the next window look down the hardware list to graphics adapter, click '+' sign and your adapter should be there, so right click and uninstall, restart pc and try again

My HP DV5 1159se was working fine last night and then this morning I go to turn it on as usual and a blank white screen comes up. The start tones are the same and I could even type my password in to log on...

If the inverter board or the back light behind the screen were bad your display would be blank, "but windows would be visible barely" the white screen indicates a bad LCD and must be changed. It is also possible the video cable from the motherboard to the screen has come loose and will need to be reseated back into place to fix it.

Toshiba A105 S2719 screen problem

Is this behavior irrespective of power condition of the laptop, ie both ac and battery?
Please see bios bulletins for your system here. Sometimes a bios update can correct this kind of problem...
However, also note this article.
In the probable event that none of that works, it's probably your inverter or backlight (EL) panel, both of which can be replaced. The white lines are not a good sign. See other thread discussions of same here and here.
Google "diagnose laptop monitor failure" for more, or see this repair guide.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Laptop video failure

Sounds like you may have "hit the problem" But to me sounds like the chip itself is no good anymore. Any chance of getting a chip off another board and replacing it?

When I boot up the screen is all colors and lines

It sounds to me like your cable is loose to the lcd or the video card is not properly 100 percent seeded into the mother board. Prolly the cable in one way or the other, perhaps bad cable.

Doesn't start

hi, if ur screen turns white, it could be any problem starting from ur LCD to motherboard or as u said a virus. to assist u in a right way i need to know what exactly is happening between that short duration between pressing the button and white screen. most importantly is anything else comming up on the screen before the white screen.

I think your laptop might be stuck in SUSPEND mode. Try unplugging the power and removing the battery and waiting five minutes, and then plugging it back in. If this does not work, try holding down the power button for ten seconds at a time and rebooting.

Good Luck...
