Why is My screen white when I power it up and won't change?

There's nothing switching the display. the back of the screen is usually a bank of white LEDs behind a diffuser or a white florescent flat tube. That is what you are seeing. In front of this is a layer with each pixel point represented by a blue red and green LCD cell.
When current is applied the structure of the LCD becomes amorphous and the light shining from behind lights up the pixel through a polarising screen.
If you can see the white backlight then some thing may have gone drastically wrong with the display. that's unusual because normally the display is all 'off' when the display is at rest (no current). So either your display/ video output is in serious trouble or it's another issue that I can't answer because there's not enough info.

You may need to take it to a repair technician to assess the situation in person.

I have a sony vaio vgn ux280p that i bought at a sale and i cant get it to restore to factory specs ive tried alt+f 10, f 11,f 8 and nothing works,what can i do?

Try letting it boot, and look for restore from your start menu. Some makers put it there, others, when you try to access the D:\ drive, it invokes program to ask the user questions on restore....

Do be aware that you need Windows and all other programs' access codes, after a reload. Another option is to create a new user, give that user admininstrator rights, and delete any unneeded users. Also on the boot up, watch the screen carefully, each system tells you how to access the bios, did you try delete? All of the keys you mentioned, try without alt, not sure that works at that boot stage.

Hi, I have a VGN UX280P and tried to install windows xp from scratch and does not boot from the CD or from USB I've configured the bios and nothing

You will have to go into the bios and change the device boot order if you haven't done this already. Google ( how to change boot order )
if you don't know how and you will find many tutorials.

Good luck and please rate if this was helpful.

White screeen

check the video chip by plugging in an external monitor then powering on - if you have nothing, it most likely means that the chip is blown. IME with Vaio laptops, this is pretty terminal as they don't come with removable AGP video boards like the Dell Latitude business notebooks do..

White Screen Of Death

Most likely the problem is the screen or other hardware errors.
If it is the screen, then you should be able to see the Hard drive activity LED flashing as things load.

White Screen Of Death

>  The display of a sudden gave up....I recall that there is some kind of short cut to enable an external monitor.
Dunno about a shortcut but often the VGA port has to be enabled in the BIOS which you may not be able to see right now but the control of the display is primitive under Win starts doing it's *magic* so text may still be visible.  I'd try entering the BIOS menu and snoop around.
