Can you check the function buttons and make sure the primary display is set to show the output on the laptop. Try repairing your OS. If not then re-install the os. As you are saying till the time windows gets loaded, all works fine so it seems the issue isn't really the hardware.

Well its not much of a solution but I have found a way to get on with it. I have set my monitor to turn off every minute unless am watching a movie oor something.
Once the screen goes white, I wait a minute then screen turns off and then I can use again.

White turns to pink on acer laptop


The problem is CCFL light bulb in the screen. It is starting to die :( Can be replaced but that is not an easy task (easier is to replace screen as new bulb comes with it)

My creative zen screen was flickering white


SEEMINGLY RANDOM PROBLEM

I've seen a million reasons why people think their Creative Zens are going to the white screen of death. I've tried a million different things myself in trying to 'solve' the problem. The only quick-fix that has worked consistently was freezing the Zen (in a plastic bag, of course). After freezing it, it always boots fully the first time I turn it on, but your guess is as good as mine as to how many times it will work before having to freeze it again.

PUT THE SQUEEZE ON - CAREFULLY!
To me, the problem has always seemed like it had to do with a lack of connection or contact inside the thing. So, my next theory has proved - so far - to work even better than freezing. However, it's a bit of a risk to the LCD screen. I noticed the casing seemed a bit "loose", so I squeeze it (be careful not to break the LCD!!!!) as I turned it on. The first time I did this was last night. The Zen has properly booted every time I've turned it on since then. I've left it for hours and turned it on occasionally when I've thought of it...and presto!

I ASKED AN EXPERT!
My brother is an electronics expert. I described the problem to him and asked his opinion. Without going into detail (that I can't remember anyway), he concluded that there are contacts in the casing for the LCD that just aren't quite making the contact.

WHY?!
I fail to understand why Creative refuses to do anything about this problem when it seems that it would be a simple fix. I understand that they have more lucrative business to attend to, but selling a bum product and not even acknowledging the problem - much less fixing it - just isn't right.

Sounds like you may have a bug, you could try re-ionstalling everything fresh, it may need a driver update. Check the funtcion keys. Sometimes you can turn up the screen contrast by holding the function key and hiiting the function key that looks like a white and black sun, Black is for darkewer, white is for brighter.

Also, ost laptops when on battery power, will auto dim to save battery power.
