Laptop white screen


Having a laptop screen turn white is one of the most frustrating problems a user can experience since it prevents use of the laptop to find a solution.
A white laptop screen indicates a serious problem with the laptop's hardware, and no easy solution to this issue exists.
Just diagnosing this condition requires advanced computer knowledge.
Identification

With this problem, the laptop itself will power on and load the operating system as per usual, but the screen will become a complete, static white, according to LaptopRepair101.
No particular brand or make of laptop falls prey to this issue more than any other; it can happen to any laptop.

Causes
Since so many different brands and models of laptops exist, specific causes of a white screen vary from laptop to laptop.
The likely cause in most cases of a white screen on a laptop is a connection problem between the LCD screen and the video cable running from the motherboard.
The issue can also reside strictly with the motherboard or the screen might contain a defect.

Considerations Users can diagnose a white screen problem by opening up the laptop display case to determine whether a loose video connection on the back of the LCD screen exists.
Reconnecting the video cable should resolve the white screen; a video cable reconnection that does not fix the white screen narrows the root cause to a problem with the motherboard or the screen.

Motherboard Problems
The only way to determine if the laptop screen turns white due to a motherboard problem is to test out a different, working LCD screen with the laptop.
This requires the user connect the inverter board--the power supply for the LCD backlight and the video cable to the test LCD.
If the test LCD works with the motherboard, then the laptop's screen needs replacing; otherwise, a new motherboard is needed because there is no way to replace an integrated graphics card on a laptop motherboard.

Prevention/Solution
Taking apart a laptop screen may make some users feel uncomfortable, so you can use an external monitor connected to the VGA port common to most laptops if the processor and hard drive still work fine. Using an external monitor requires finding the proper function key command to toggle between the LCD and external monitor.
Warning
Taking apart the LCD screen on a monitor likely voids any manufacturer's warranty.
Consider visually checking the video connection to the laptop screen as a last resort if no other viable options exists.
The service manual that came with your laptop likely offers some tips to disassembling the computer, or conditions that could void the warranty.

Do you have the latest version of web browser (you don't say what you use) installed in the computer? If not do that first to see if that clears up the problem. Also delete cookies and web browser history.

This is caused by a bluescreen or overheating. To see if its a bluescreen, fress f8 on boot and select disable automatic restart on system failure, and wait for it to reboot. This time, it might show a blue screen with white letters. Then you know its an issue with your operating system.

You say the laptop all of a sudden flashed off.

How old is the laptop? You may have suffered one of two things? First of all, if the hard drive will not boot back up, even after using the recovery discs, then that would explain it powering off. I have seen this happen on old desktop hard drives.

Next, try to get the transformer or adapter tested. It may not be putting out enough amperage to run the laptop.

LCD screen not lighting


It sounds like the Backlight for your laptop gave out.

Heres a simple test to see if THAT is the case

Power it up while under a bright light 100W or better possibly even sunlight on a sunny day. Move the screen at varying angle to the light. If you can see what appears to be a "Shadowy" image of your desktop then YES indeed your backlight went out.

Your backlight should be replaced by an experienced service tech. Unless you are comfortable with working with high voltage electronics (The backlight has a charge capacitor) that can injure you if you are not careful.

There is a VGA connector on the back of your laptop. You can plug in a monitor to that so you may use your laptop. (Until you can get it fixed) Just plug in the monitor and press <Fn> and <F5> to switch to the external display

Hope this helps

After aol main computer went down they told me to reoncifugre the router i dont know how to do this and as i dont have a home fone line i cnt ring them any help please?


First thing to do is try to connect to the Internet without AOL then sign on to AOL using the broadband connection. When Internet Explorer is open, even without a connection, go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections and check the 'Never Dial a Connection', Click on Advanced and check the 'Automatically Detect Settings' check box. If you are not connecting to the Internet then turn off or unplug the power to the modem, turn it back on and wait 2 minutes. If you don't connect then do the same with the router power. If you still haven't connected using just Internet Explorer, NOT AOL, then talk to your router directly:) Do this by Start>Run>type http://192.168.1.1 (Linksys) or http://192.168.10.1 (Motorola). A logon screen appears. User Name is the manufacturer's name and 'admin' is the password. A web page or dashboard will appear. For a cable modem select DHCP. For DSL select PPPoE. Static addresses can also be entered if you know what they are but probably not. When you see ip addresses listed open Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome or whatever browser flavor you like EXCEPT AOL. Once connected to the Internet then go to AOL. More specifics on your broadband service and hardware makes will get you more specific help if you need. Happy surfing!
