Screen is white, no picture

My laptop screen is white, but everything works and the picture comes on my monitor when I am attached to the port replicator. No picture comes on the laptop even when I press F10 to change from the monitor to the laptop screen.

I just fixed this problem on my Toshiba Satellite. I had to take the screen apart. There are 4 scews on the corners that remove the front tim. (sometimes they are covered by rubber bumpers)

This will usually expose more screws to remove the back of the LCD screen. Follow the ribbon cable up the back of the screen to where it plugs in to a circuit board.

The problem for my laptop was the cable had come un-seated from the circuit board. I push it back in and the display worked.

Note... the cable did not look un-plugged;
becareful not to touch the top of the display where all the wires from the circuit connect to the LCD display;
You may want to add some tape to the cable to keep it in place. There was some there but it was working well.

MSI Laptop have no disply only white screen


What can you do if the laptop LCD screen turned completely white?


1. Loose connection between the video cable and the LCD screen.
2. Defective LCD screen.
3. Defective motherboard (I assume the graphics card is integrated into the motherboard).


Here's an example of a laptop with white screen.

When you turn on the laptop, it starts but the image on the screen is completely white right from the beginning.


Most likely you still can use the laptop with an external monitor.

Just connect the monitor to the VGA port on the back or side of your laptop and then switch the video output from internal to external mode.


On Toshiba laptops you can toggle between internal and external screens using Fn+F5 keys. Hold down Fn and press on F5 until you get video on the external monitor.
On IBM laptops use Fn+F7.
On HP laptops use Fn+F4.


It's possible that you have to use a different key combination on your laptop but you get the idea.


On some laptops, in order to be able to use the external monitor, you have to connect it to the laptop and then restart the laptop so the external monitor is detected by the laptop.


In some cases the laptop screen may turn white because of poor connection between the video cable and the LCD screen.


If you want to check this connection, you'll have to take apart the display panel because the connector is located on the back side of the LCD screen.


These laptop service manuals and disassembly instructions may be useful.

Always check the video cable connection first. Reconnecting the video cable may fix your problem.


If reconnecting the video cable doesn't help, most likely you have a problem either with the LCD screen or with the motherboard.


The best way to find out witch one is causing the problem is testing the laptop with another working LCD screen.


you will need to connect to another monitor or your television to your computer with the vga lead monitor connection


click start control panel display change display settings adjust resolution this may vary depending on your operating system


you should see a no 1 and a no 2 with detect and identify keep an eye on the screen when you select the number tabs this may vary depending on your operating system

when you select the no 2 tab this should be the extended desktop always click apply after making any changes

or click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to monitors right click select scan for hardware changes

if you can get an extended desktop your monitor is faulty

if you cant get an exended desktop


hope it helps

Fujitsu lifebook screen will not come on


Could be a dead screen, use your vga, hdmi or svideo port to an external monitor or tv, if you get video there, then your laptop is still working and it is your screen. Check to see if you see any pictures on your screen but it would show in really really dark picture... if that is the case it is your screen backlit bulb that gone bad and the screen will need to be replaced. If nothing appears on your screen but you get picture to a external monitor via s-video, hdmi or the vga port then it could be that you have a loose cable connection or bad wireing somewhere between your latop base and the screen. If nothing at all appears on your screen or the external monitor source then you have a promblem with your laptop.... and those promblem can be in a wide range of trying to seek out the defective part.

I would like to pull some data from the computer before anything else goes wrong. Can a external monitor be attached and how am I to use it?


Yes you can attach an external monitor to your laptop. External monitors have a serial cable which plugs into the serial port of your laptop and the monitor also needs to be plugged into the power mains. When you restart the laptop it may pick it up automatically. If not you need to hold down the Fn key on your key board and press one of the Fkeys. The F key that you need to press will have a picture of a monitor on it. On most laptops it's F7 but I've come across some that use F5 or F6 so there may be others that use a different F key.

When you press the F key while holding the Fn key down if nothing happens press it again and if nothing happens press it a third time. This cycles it through 3 options Laptop screen only, Monitor and laptop screen or Monitor only.

Screen went white


The white glow with no picture means that either the ribbon cable connection between the logic board and the monitor has come lose or dirty contacts, or the LCD Controller (T-CON) board (part of the LCD panel is not getting 5v or 12v depend on LCD panel from the logic board or the LCD controller board has blown fuse, see pictures here for guide (note pin on the LCD board with arrow mark is pin 1 and is the incoming DC power supply line): http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/LCD%20panel/?action=view&current=DSCF0881.jpg
You may also want to look for bad caps (bulging top) on the logic board. There should be 5vdc feeding the logic board also.

My toshiba laptop has a thick white line down the screen


The normal cause of lines across the LCD of a laptop is a damaged video cable. The unusual cause would be the video card itself.

To determine which item is at fault, you need only attach an external monitor to your laptop's video-out, and then swap your monitor view to 'both' or mirrored (usually just the function key (FN), plus one of the Fkeys...look for an off-blue picture of a monitor on the Fkeys).

If the lines across the screen also appear on an external monitor, then the video card is damaged.

If the lines only appear on the laptop's LCD, but not the external monitor, then just the laptop's internal video cable is damaged.

Hope this helps.

My laptop display only shows half a screen. The rest shows a white background with thin black lines. I can attach an external monitor and see everything without an issue.


i have solve the problem for my hp nx7300. mine used to show everything that should be shown on the screen but had the screen placed in a Conner so small. i solved this by uninstalling the monitor and unknown device drivers. i have then installed the unknown device as a blue-tooth adapter to avoid this problem recurring. hope this sorts out some people's problem. the other half screen with half completely not shown has to do with the cable connecting the monitor and the CPU. remember solving this for my friend by cleaning the connection port.

Gateway flat LCD dead


I'm not sure if your referring to the lcd monitor (gateway brand) or a laptop's lcd screen not working anymore.

1. if it's an lcd monitor...
a. test monitor in a different pc before assuming the problem is the lcd screen
b. replace the monitor if after testing monitor is in deed the item failing.

2. if it's the lcd screen from your gateway laptop.
a. you may be able to attach a regular analog monitor to the paralel port on your gateway.. test and see if the monitor that you attach will give you a picture (you may have to toggle with some some keys on your laptop keyboard to make have the signal going to the "externa" or attached monitor.
if the other monitor does not work either.. you video controller on your motherboard on your laptop may be failing and you may not have other options that to replace your laptop.
b. if the external/attached monitor works.. very likely the problem is the lcd screen for that you need to get a replacement and you may have to contact gateway to find out about pricing (or places to send your laptop for service if you're still within warranty). if you have an old laptop you may have to considere simply replacing the unit as buying a new lcd screen may very likely be more expensive than the same working laptop.

Monitor non functional


Am I correct in understanding that your MacBook is operating properly, but when you attach your external monitor it doesn't show anything?
I often connect my black MacBook 2GHz to my flat screen's VGA port. Sometime the screen doesn't respond for one reason or another. The fastest solution is typically to mirror the screens then return to normal. When that doesn't work, it's usually enough to restart the MacBook while it's still plugged in to the external monitor. If neither of those work, try connecting to a different monitor or finally try replacing the connector.
Unfortunately those connectors don't have the best life spans. (See Apple's customer reviews on DVI connectors.)

Sony Viao Display Problem


Sounds like you have some internal issues going on with this Laptop! If you are getting the same response when you connect an external monitor, then you more than likely have a few things going on here: A bad VGA port for starters, Issues with the Data card, and your graphic card is cetainly not helping. In addition you may want to check appropriate drivers as they are sometimes updated! But my best guess is that you are having issues internally! That could be costly! Sorry!
