Paul -
This absolutely could be the ribbon cable connecting your screen to your motherboard. If you know how to check this, it would be worth trying before spending $150+ on an LCD. Any way you look at it, this is definitely a hardware issue. Just hope it's not the motherboard's onboard video card. Here is a modified answer I gave to a question similar to your issue:
If you turn on your laptop and the display is bad, your issue is with either the LCD screen or the motherboard (since the video card is built-in the motherboard). This will be easy to diagnose.
1.) Plug an external monitor (one which you know works) into the VGA port of your laptop.
2.) Turn on the laptop.
3.) Hold down the FN key (lower-left corner of the keyboard) and press the "CRT/LCD" key (it will be located on the number keys or F1-F12. You do this to tell the laptop that it needs to send the video signal to the external monitor instead of its built-in LCD screen.
If the display is good on the external monitor, then the issue is with the laptop's LCD screen (about $200 for the part plus labor to install). If the display is still messed up on the external monitor, then your problem is with the motherboard ($300-$500 for the part plus a lot in labor cost for installation).

Let me know if this helps you!

Sounds like you have a bad video card if so your looking a new motherboard to fix the issue. If you plug in an external monitor using the vga port on your lapop and you get the same thing on the external you have a bad video card.

I have been having white screen on my nc10


White screen usually means fried video card or graphics card on motherboard. Can you plug into a external computer monitor? If you can do that there maybe a shortcut key on your F-keys to display screen on external monitor.

So I'm turning on my inspiron 5100 and all i get is a white screen. It sounds like it's on but the screen remains blank white?


Hi Donny,

A white screen usually means the LCD panel has failed/worn out. Here's an easy way to make sure. Get your laptop to an external monitor, whether at your home or a friend's place, and with the laptop off and the external monitor off, connect the monitor video (vga) cable to your laptop. Turn them both on and then on your Dell laptop hold down the fn key down in the bottom left hand corner of the keyboard and press the F8 key up at the top. That transfers the video signal to the external monitor.

If the external monitor shows your laptops normal desktop and icons, then you know for sure the LCD screen on your laptop is worn out. If you get the same white screen on the external monitor, it means the video card/controller on the motherboard of your laptop has worn out and you can move ahead with deciding on repairs or other options.

Good Luck.

PS....if the F8 key doesn't transfer the video signal. look at all the F keys for one that says CRT or one that has a little picture of a monitor to transfer the signal.

Color output to screen lacking red


Hi,
You have ruled out the graphics chip by plugging an external monitor in, the chips fine.
Now you have to look at the inverter. Sometimes a cable will work itself loose from the inverter, causing the display to go wild and show strange colours where is should be white.
What you have to do is remove the screen bezel (the plastic screen surround) this reveal the screen, look at the bottom of the screen for a thin circuit board with cables coming from it and make sure the cables a plugged in properly.
If you need anymore help or advice please post back.



Good luck.
