Re: Screen goes white
Hi this is the way how to
examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the
screen went white, you have to check that if you can see the image on the
screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find
the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the
icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps
inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you
cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter
board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by
yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show
leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have
soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If
anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know. Thank you,

Hi there i read your report. OK go to your power options and turn off your hibernate and restart your computer.allot of times after you have reformatted your hard driver. the hibernation doesn't work correctly. Try this tip and let me know how it goes. Thank you for writing to fix ya.
hold down the Fn and F8 keys, and it worked fine for me.
if your problem is you cannot wake from power saving mode (after your PC goes to sleep, then its probably just the driver for your video card). VISTA has some issues with certain drivers that the PC cannot wake from sleep
Perhaps your computer is hibernating instead of going into standby which takes a little longer to wake up from. While you are playing plugs and cables it give it enough time to come out of hibernation.
When the computer is in this mode the USB ports turn off which disables keyboard and mouse so the only way to wake up the computer is to press the power button on the computer itself.
One tell tale sign a computer is in hibernation is that the power light on the computer will slowly blink.
Your computer may be in screen saver mode, it has instructed the monitor to go to power saving mode, or the the monitor's video cable is not properly connected to the computer. Another possible cause of this is a locked-up or in-operative computer since the computer is what supplies the monitor with all the display data or information. Move the mouse or press a key to de-activate the screen saver or power saving mode. Check the monitor's video cable and make sure it is snugly connected to the computer. To see if the computer is operating properly, press the CAPS LOCK key on the keyboard repeatedly while checking the CAPS LOCK light. If the light is not turning ON & OFF, the computer is non-functional. Contact your computer manufacturer for help.
The problem seems to be with the monitor.When there is no Display,if you power-off and on again do you get a Benq Startup screen?If not the problem should be dry solder on the Invertor board.Try tapping screen lightly,if it comes on the problem is dry solder on Invertor board.

It is with your system. You might have hibernation enabled and many advanced video cards cannot recover from a bios or control panel timed hibernate. Start by using the Power Options from the control panel. Select "Always On" for everything and select the Hibernate tab to be sure that the Hibernate check box is not selected. Make sure you APPLY the settings. If the problem goes away, you can tweak the settings to get the power savings features you want without losing your system..
right click on your desk top then left click on 'properties' in the white box that appears.
this will bring up a 'display properties' box which should have a tab headed 'screen saver' amongst others.
select the screen saver tab.
in this tab there are 2 sections. one to select which screen saver you want to use (and what settings are applied to it), and another section which should be called 'monitor power'.
click the button here which says 'power...' to adjust your power settings.
in the next window there are 4 tabs. select the first tab (power schemes - which should be already selected by default) and you now have 4 options. leave the selected 'power scheme' in the top of the window as it is and just alter the settings for the selected power scheme.
your 4 options are: 'turn off monitor', 'turn off hard disks', 'system standby' and 'system hibernates' i would recommend setting all of these to 'never', and don't forget to click the 'apply' button after you've done this.
i would also recommend disableing hibernation in the 'hibernate' tab (this is in the same window as the power schemes tab).
once you've adjusted your power settings, don't forget to activate one of your screen savers. this is only important if you leave the monitor on for a long time with no changes taking place in terms of what is being displayed. if you leave a static image on for hours you will end up with permanent screen burn. (a ghost image that is always there - even when the monitor isn't switched on!).
i don't bother with screen savers personally as i find them annoying, and find it much easier to simply turn the monitor off whenever i'm not going to be using it for the next hour or more.
hope that solved your problem. apologies if it doesn't.
by the way, the tabs etc i described are what i have on my OS (windows XP pro) and may be named differently if you're using a different version of windows. the 'power options' settings will still be accessible via 'screen saver' tab in desktop properties though.
