One cause of the white screen is that the video card inside of the laptop is not working. The pixel distribution of colors and the screen uniformity wont work. If your service provider replace the video card already and still did not work, another cause is that the motherboard is not responding. It is because the circuitry from the motherboard to the video card is off. The manufacturer needs to check its circuits and probably they will replace the motherboard..

Laptop screen white and cloudy


From your description I would expect that the LCD panel has shorted or gone open. Either way the panel needs to be replaced. Depending on the age of the laptop you may be better off getting another laptop, new or used, and just swapping out the hard drive to your drive. If you decide o do this be sure that the laptop you buy is compatible to your old drive.

White screen "


Your display problem may be in the graphics controller on the motherboard. It might also be in the display itself, which contains a lot electronics. Yet another possibility is that the system is freezing up completely, and the white screen is the result.

Since it takes a while for the screen to go white, the trouble is most likely due to something heating up. I've fixed a lot of laptops that freeze up because the processor chip overheats. Sometimes it's because the fan isn't working, or the screws holding the fan assembly down work loose.

Hook up an external monitor to the laptop for testing. You might need to enable the external VGA connector with a function key before you'll see anything. If the motherboard is freezing up, the external monitor will quit as well when the laptop display goes white. If the computer keeps working normally with the external monitor, though, you know the trouble is in the graphics circuitry or display.

Unfortunately, it's hard to say for sure whether the motherboard or display is at fault. My experience has been that a completely blank display is usually a motherboard failure, but not always. Failures in the display itself usually cause lines or other problems with the image, but you still see something.

Replacement motherboards are often available at reasonable prices, but displays often are not. You may want to take this computer to a service shop and let them figure it out and give you a repair estimate. That way you won't wind up buying a part that may be costly and not fix the trouble.

I hope this helps you decide what to do. Thanks for using Fixya!

White screen display on Nokia N70


Good day sir/maam, the white screen problem is a serious one. problem on the main board, decide first if you want to fix it yourself or not? if yes there are several hot fixes you may need to do and that involves using(buying) a hot air gun. the technique is resoldering all main IC circuits on the mobile phone and pray that the circuits are in good order. If not, better bring it to a service center.

White screen


2 possible reasons :

1 - Video controller has failed - (Unlikely as you would normally be left with a plain black screen)
2 - Connector has come loose from main board (very possible due to the way in which they are generally located)

My acer aspire4310 notebook suddenly displays a white screen


If you have blue strip running down vertically from top to bottom then normally there is a problem with LCD or a loose LCD cable.But what I recommend you to test more is tha,t if you tab at the back of your screen ...does this problem occur ???
Incase it does,then its a loose LCD cable problem.You still need
a qualified person who knows how to open the monitor to repair inside.
And again for the White screen it can also be both cases I mentioned above

ByeBye,takecarfe

There are two types of lines.

Lines caused by a bad LCD screen and lines caused by poor sync.

A bad LCD will cause perfectly straight vertical and horizontal lines that don't move at all. This is because the row and column addressing ICs have gone bad, so you will end up with rows or columns of bad pixels.

Poor sync looks more like what you are describing. The picture will flip vertically and horizontally.

Poor or missing sync can be caused by a bad video cable, or a bad IC on the main board.

If the monitor has a removable video cable, borrow another one from a friend to test if the monitor is working. If it works, head to your local computer store and buy a new cable.
If the monitor still doesn't work with a different cable, you may have a bad main board. The only way to repair the monitor will be to replace the board.

If you open the monitor, be sure to check for bad capacitors. They can cause all sorts of strange faults. Look elsewhere on this site for how-tos on inspecting capacitors.

If your video cable is not removable, there's not much you can do. You will need a way to test that each pin on the cable connector on the main board conducts to a corresponding pin on the other end of the cable. You can do this if you have a multimeter, or a continuity tester.
