99% of the time this is caused by a blown VIN fuse. This is a tiny 1-2 amp slow blow fuse that is attached to the video board on the back of the interior LCD (usually hidden behind an aluminum plate). It can be replaced, but requires knowledge of electronics and soldering know how. If you feel up to it then here you go:
Remember that all monitors are different, but have the same general set of components, so be sure to look around. This is only general instruction, so location may vary slightly. Now that that is out of the way, open monitor and remove the LCD panel. At the back of the panel there will be a ribbon cable. Follow it up the the top of the LCD where it will usually terminate behind what appears to be a metal panel. Behind that plate is usually a video card and in the general area of the video cable connector (where the ribbon cable ends) will be the small fuse usually white, yellow, orange or green, but slightly translucent. Take a voltmeter to it and test for continuity, if you get no reading, then the fuse is gone. You can find these tiny fuses online. Or buy a new monitor.

Best of Luck,

Why does my monitor have a white screen

First, it could be out of adjustment--turn the brightness and contrast controls up and down to see if it makes a difference.
You could have a bad video card in the computer. Do you have another monitor to try to see if the actual video output is good? This is the easiest way of troubleshooting.
When you start the computer, can you see any white printing on the screen indicating it is booting? Does the problem start once Windows starts? If so, try starting in safe mode. If you can do this, then I'd suspect video driver problems.

The screen my laptop is white like white bord

If the laptop's screen is white, try connecting it to an external monitor (at work or at a friends if you don't have one) and see if the output is normal on an external monitor.

If external output (to a monitor) is normal, then in all likelihood, you have a bad screen.

If external output is problematic (like the laptop's LCD), then in all likelihood, the motherboard is bad.

Without knowing what model your computer is, that'd be how I'd go about trying to nail down where the problem is coming from.

Computer was working fine we powered it up and the screen is white nothing else happens

What happens if you connect an external monitor to the VGA port on the laptop? Is the output "white", or is it what you expect?

If your LCD shows 100% white, then the LCD is not getting the correct "signals" from the computer's video-card.

Take your laptop to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting.

The screen is white, can not get to 'catch' the computer output.

If the screen just have white glow and no picture, it can be that the LCD controller board (part of the LCD panel) is not getting the 5VDC from the logic board (ribbon cable came off), or the power supply problem due to failed caps. I assume that you are getting the same result when it is connected to other PC. You can open it up and inspect the inside to get some idea what is going on, see:

Lcd monitor 20.1

The white screen is caused by a total lack of control over all pixels. The opposite effect; all black, happens when a failure turns all pixels on, blocking all but a small amount of light.
This could have more than one source; one output of the power supply has failed so the logic section no longer is receiving supply voltage or an external source has damaged the video input of the monitor. The backlight responsible for the white screen is obviously working as this is a separate power supply output to an inverter that powers the backlight lamp.  I'm afraid this is not a DIY repair.
