InstallatIon of Mac OS X 10.4.10
White screen issues on your Macbook are more often than not, an indication that you may have a connected peripheral or device which may be hindering your Macbook's normal start up function
What you need to do first, is remove all peripherals from (printers, scanners, USB drives etc.) and then reboot your Macbook.
If your Macbook starts up normally without a white screen, leave all the peripherals disconnected and see if you can proceed to run all of your software updates, in Apple menu>Software Updates, first, including updating to the final version of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, 10.4.11.
Once all of your updates are completed, then you will need to go through a process of elimination by connecting one peripheral at a time, then properly shutting down and restarting your Macbook with each device, to see if your Macbook goes to a White screen.
Depending on the number of peripherals you have normally connected to your Macbook, this may seem a little tedious at first. But considering how bothersome a White screen is, it will be worth it solving the mystery of which peripheral is causing the white screen and failure to boot up normally.
If it turns out that one of the devices you had connected was in fact, causing the white screen, this will be the opportunity for to research online, visiting the affected device's manufacturer's website or even use Google, to confirm if there are any known issues and/or updates available to address that issue.
There are other variables which can come into view with a white screen issue, but this is a good way to start in terms of working toward a viable solution to this issue with your Macbook.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have more questions.
