My computer screen is white

Walked into the office today and the screen is white....i know the computer is working fine because i can log into it from from another computer. I believe it may be something with the contrast or brightness, but I cannot change it back to normal...any suggestions are appreciated!

Re: My computer screen is white

Here are the things I would try:

First, if you have another monitor I would plug it in to see if the problem is actually your monitor or something else. If you don't have access to another monitor then I would try to reset the monitor to factory defaults. I know this will not be easy because you cannot see the screen, but I looked at the manual and I believe this is how to do it:

Press the "1" button on the monitor, then press the downward arrow 6 times, then press the "2" button. I think this will reset the monitor. Take a look at the manual:

And you'll see what I mean.

If that does not work, I would double check your cable connections (you have probably already done that). I woud then use Device Manager to make sure there's no known problem with your video adapter. To use Device Manager do this:

Right click on My Computer and select properties. Now select the Hardware tab and then click on Device Manager. Find the entry for your display adapter and verify there are not exclamation points or question marks next to it. If there are, let me know and we'll go a different route.

If the above does not pan out I would reboot the computer in Safe Mode to see what happens. Safe Mode loads Windows with a very minimal set of drivers including the most basic VGA driver available as opposed to the more capable one your most likey using now. If the monitor works in Safe Mode then it's most likely a software problem, but it does not totally rule out the possibility that the VGA hardware is going bad.

If it worked in Safe Mode then I would try a System Restore to a date before the problem began. To use System Restore do this:

Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore.

It's pretty self-explanitory and it will restore many critical files that may have become corrupted. It will take a while to complete, but it is reversible so you have little to lose.

If all of this fails to help then I would do whatever you need to find another monitor to plug in before you go any further. It could be a bad monitor after all.

Now the editorial section. I don't get paid for this. I know it's a strange hobby, but I like to help if I can. If you found any of this helpful I hope you'll give this post a positive rating. Nearly half of the solutions I've posted have never been rated. Thanks and good luck.

Re: My computer screen is white

It would appear that I am not the only one who had a white screen problem. I say 'had' because I fixed the problem easily and everything is back to normal with colors and the elimination of non-responsive clicks on web pages with the white screen.

The White Screen of Death (WSoD), not to be confused with the BSoD, infiltrated my computer several weeks ago, and I finally eliminated the problem by changing my Back Ground Theme (which I had for years) in the Control Panel, Personalization, Windows 7, to another theme, "Blue Skies", which I downloaded from Windows' other themes.

I am amazed at my simple discovery, but it worked for me. I can't imagine why the first theme went bad, but I assume in through out the years, my updates, upgrades, changes, and downloads of other applications finally destroyed the integrity of the original theme.

This fix will probably work with any Windows theme and not just "Blue Skies".

Have owned a iiyama 17" pro crt for a few years,

These were a fine monitor and with the kind of image quality you cannot get on TFT's.
If you know the graphics card you are using is working ok, have checked the VGA cable connection and socket at the monitor and computer and have tested the monitor on another computer, that would rule out any problems as far as connected devices are concerned.

The problem you describe, and it is unusual that it has happened so quickly, points to a failure of the monitor internal board. You may be able to get this repaired at a reasonable cost by seeking the opinion of a TV repairman, who might be able to fix it.

Pink Screen

Probably the color temperature setting or some other color settings - since you didn't specify your monitor's brand and model, it's hard to guess.
Anyway, most monitors have a "Reset to factory defaults" feature - you may want to make use of this...

Ok i have an hd pc monitor and when i turn on i get a whit screen

dani. If you can verify your PC is working ok and capable of driving a known good monitor, you will at least narrowed down problem to your white screen lcd! Always state the make and model in the text body of your post to fixya. I usually only do BLACK screen fails, but here goes anyway. The vga input to LCD digital output interface board is telling the lcd panel to turn all pixels "ON" !! If monitor worked ok the day before--then it should work fine today? NO! something has changed! When strange things start to occur on lcd panel I would first suspect the "switch-mode-power-supply" as the trouble maker. If you haven't a clue as to how a SMPS does what it does, then you will need to find technician or TV repair shop that also knows forward and backwards all about lcd monitors. I do suggest that you visit youtube for videos on lcd monitor disassembly and LCD monitor repair so you can see what is inside a typical unit. FYI visit and Well, anyway, your CCFL backlights STILL work!!
Although most of my responses are to Black/Blank screen you may find other options that will suit you a little better. 12fixlouie

Hp vs17 has white screen at boot. I have eliminated the chord from the tower and the tower works fine. I have audio, no video. Only a white blank screen. It does not blink or flicker. It just stays white....

There are three choices here...bad screen, bad connection, or bad video card, if the card is integrated onto the motherboard, then that part of the motherboard could be bad. If you have access to another monitor or a TV with a vga input, try the computer with another monitor. If you get a signal on that other monitor then you know you either had a bad connection with the other monitor or you lost the screen on the old one. Go back and reseat your video connections with the computer off. Don't ever remove or move cables to the monitor and video with the computer running...the screen can suffer permanent damage. If there is no signal on any monitor, then either you have a bad vga cord or your video graphics card had died.

My computer screen is white

When it turns colors that usually means one of four things. 1 cable is not set write, 2 monitor is bad, 3 settings are out of whack or 4 the video card is going bad. I would try to mess with the cables and if that does not work plug that monitor into another computer to see if it work and plug a new monitor into that one. You should be able to solve what it is then.
Good luck

Had a Acer al2017

If your picture was okay when it was running and the screen was not pinkish then the power board inside the monitor is in need of an overhaul.
Your unplugging it and plugging it back in just did a temporary reset by discharging the capaciotrs for a bit.
It more than likely needs new capacitors installed.
I have done a few of these and do a lot of inverter power board repairs through ebay id bammbammfran

First of all go for monitor self test. disconnect your monitor cable from the back of ur CPU and turn on ur monitor, if you see some colour(red, blue, green etc) boxes in any shape that means your monitor is fine, make sure colours are not hazy. If this succeeds that check the pins of the monitor connector, make sure pins are not bent or broken. Just Give it a try ... Cheers!!
