Question about Computers & Internet
Screen white sounds like a video adapter failure.
unplug and take battery out. open up the memory cover in the bottom ofthe laptop, take both memory modules out from the laptop, now with nomemory plug in the power adapter and try starting up, wait 1 minute andturn the laptop off, now place one of the memory modules back into thelaptop and try starting up again, remember to unplug the power whenyour connecting or disconnecting parts from the laptop.
Does thelaptop start up? If not, then take the ram module out from the laptopagain, this time place it on the other memory slot and try again. If itstill doesn't start up repeat the above with the other memory module ifyou have two.
if theres no improvement take the laptop apart, just disconnect allextra not required components of the laptop, modem, wireless, dvd, etc.
see if it boots up with just motherboard, cpu, cpuheatsink, other heatsinks, and one memory ram module, on power adapter.
ifit doesn't start up, reseat the cpu you may also want to replace thethermal grease between the cpu and the heatsink, remember to wipe theold gease off, use DRY toilet paper or similiar, DO NOT USE WATER.
Ifthe machine still doesn't work at all, it appears to be either themotherboard or the video adapter on the mainboard that has failedpossibly due to overheating. You will most likely have to replace thewhole mainboard. I would take the laptop to a local professional toconfirm the fault.
or you could possibly buy a card like this
shouldcome with a good manual of the code meanings, plug it in to thecomputer on the mini pci slot or the printer port and use USB forpower, USB NOT NEEDED WHEN USING INTERNAL MINI PCI SLOT.
thecodes that come up and the manual will point us to the direction of theproblem. It does not guarantee that we can fix it. It helps in doingdiagnosis at home and then replacing the part that is found faulty.
I'mpretty sure the issue is the mainboard or the video adapter. take it toa local professional to confirm the issue as I can't test your laptopover the internet.
