My computer screen turned white and now it wont boot up

I was using my gateway amda turion 64 2 and all of a sudden the screen just turned white with black lines. I unplugged it, and took out the battery so it would turn off. Now whenever I turn it on the screen is black, and it just makes sounds like it is on, but none of the start up sounds come on. Also when attempting to give solutions please keep in mind that I am not a computer person. Computer lingo goes straight over my head, please be as basic as possible.

What is the best processor to get for upgrade?


Here is the Fastest processor that will physically fit Turion 64 X2 TL-68, but this will use more power and generate a lot more heat. The best I would advise is the Turion 64 X2 TL-60 This draws the same power and will increase the speed to 2Ghz on 2 cores. So the extra heat produced should be minimal and your battery life should be very similar.

I have a gateway gx7022e windows xp computer. When i try to boot it up the white letters pop up then the screen goes to the gateway screen and freezes. Then my num lock comes on but my keyboard wont work....


At power on / power up, look for the key during the bootup (black screen with white text), that allows you to enter SETUP. If none designated such as F1, F2 F10 etc, then quickly click the delete button a few times and that may get you into setup. You may have to turn off the computer if you miss that window of time if it rfequires pressing the delete button a few times. Keep an eye out for the Enter Setup key though. To turn off the computer press and hold the power button 'till is shuts down and resart the process until you get to the setup screen in bios. In setup bios environment, look for set factory defaults and then save and restart. That may solve the issue of the lockup.

If heatsink is very hot then apply thermal grease between the processor and the heatsink or you can test if it's cooling problem by cooling with an external, powerful cooler.

Laptop screen turn blank


Are you using the nVidia GeForce GO 6150 video card? If this is the case, and I'm pretty sure it is, the NV driver is not being recognized and the system is starting in VESA.
On the nVida, HSYNC/VSYNC frequencies need to be specified, after that the MIXIMUM resolution of 1280x800 should work for you.

Clean the CPU cooler and everithing else from the dust!

Turn off,open the case, use air spray to clean.
