White screen appears on computer at startup

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

I deleted all the Sony Ericsson x8 things including system and software, I have the Sony Ericsson logo and the other nothing. Can you help me get back to the system and software?


You will need to hard reset the phone.

  1. Turn the power off. If your Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it
  2. Hold the Left and right buttons located beneath the display
  3. Press and release the Power button
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to hard reset your Xperia X8
All data including third-party applications will be deleted from the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8. Once the wipe is complete, the phone will reboot to its factory fresh state.

I have a Windows 7 home premium computer using a 1280 720 screen resolution. This is the recommended settings and everything looks right, shapes aren't distorted and such. But i installed Service Pack...

try to auto adjust with your monitor if possible or try a different resolution to see what works better
beyond that you may wanna try to rollback your display adapter's driver

Computer screen too wide

You just need to change your screen resolution to fit the monitor. Right click an empty spot on the desktop and left click on Properties. This will bring up your Display Properties. Click the Settings Tab at the top right and you will see a slider bar on the middle left. Move the slider bar to the right or left one bit at a time and hit the "Apply" button. The screen resolution will change and if it does not look right, then cancel the change and go to the nest resolution setting. Repeat this process till you get a resolution that works well with your monitor. Cheers!

How to make mirror image of second monitor we cannot make the mirror image in our pc which is also connected with first monitor by rgb connector

Select CLONE, Y not spanned desktop. Clone and Span modes tell Windows that only one monitor is present on the machine. They don't give Windows control over individual monitors, but they don't require Windows to support multiple monitors either.

True Multi-monitor mode is different. Here, the display driver tells Windows the actual number of monitors attached to the computer. Each monitor can have its own display and each can have its own independent display resolution and color depth.

Does your computer have True Multi-monitor support? One way to tell is to right-click the Windows desktop and choose Properties from the popup menu then click the Settings tab of the Display Properties dialog box.
You MUST have latest drivers from manufacturers web site installed to. Us the control panel from that to adjust.

View sreen smaller than monitor size

Well a few things can be assumed, I think.
You're monitor is a CRT(not LCD - which has auto-adjust), and possibly you've just finished installing windows on that machine, and maybe your video card drivers are not installed.

For this step-by-step, it will likely require that the correct video card drivers are installed.
Lets move on and assume they are fine:
-Right-Click on your desktop, click Properties.
-a Display Properties window will pop up, click Settings(usually the far top-right tab), near the bottom right of the Settings panel is Advanced.. click on it(Advanced)
-what will pop up is "'something' Monitor and 'something' Properties", and from here you'll go to the Monitor tab.
-the setting to adjust is the Screen Refresh Rate. Select a different number, click Apply... see what it looks like, and try a different number if that's not good enough - rinse, repeat.... at least until you get what you're looking for, or close to...
-Then close out all of it.

Beyond that adjustability, the only thing to be messed with is the monitors' vertical and horizontal sizing adjustments, which are only accessible using the buttons on the screen, and how that works will vary depending on the brand & model.

I hope that works out for you

P.S. Avoid un-checking the 'hide modes that this monitor cannot display' ... going beyond the monitors ability will blank out your screen and then you will hafta adjust the settings back, literally BLIND(not very fun in my experiences).
