Since you did not provide the make and model, you will have to pull out the manual and check the settings. It may provide you with a setting change for the background color. Perhaps you can connect it to a computer, open an new blank document and project the blank image to get your white light.

When it goes to the blank screen, are you able to see the icons and such , like in the background? If so then the backlight on the screen has burned out. You could replace the screen relatively easily if you're technically inclined.

I sometimes get a blank screen while i'm using the computer or when i'm watching a dvd? why is the problem?


you may have screen saver active with no background selected, so when it goes to screen saver it only show blank scree. next time screen goes blank touch a key, if screen comes back, it is your screen saver, go to control panel find personalize and go to screen saver, make changes.

Vista Black Screen after Startup.


Try booting into SAFE MODE, usually by pressing F5 or F8 just after turning the power on. This should give you a display. Once you can see your desktop right chick on a blank area of the desktop, select PERSONALISE, then DISPLAY SETTINGS to reduce the screen resolution. Then reboot and try again in NORMAL Startup

I have an ees pc 4 gb i can see the windows xp logo when i turn it on and hear all the sounds but then my screen is blank but i still hear windows help i'm not a computer whiz


Some systems may take a bit to boot at times. Windows has to do a number of functions during startup. Have you tried just leaving it run after you see the windows logo and wait several minutes? If not, give it a try. If after about 5 minutes you see nothing, get back to me.
Since the logo appears, you have video. Although the screen goes blank after this mostly means that Windows is still loading and has to perform some tasks and possible system correction issues. Let it run like I mantioned above and see what happens. Thanks

Hello,
When your computer boots and reaches to the background screen, press ctrl+alt+del and see if Task Manager appears.
If it does, then go to File, New Task (Run) and type explorer.exe and press enter. Your desktop should appear. It may have accidentally been removed from startup.

If it does not, then it might need a repair or recovery due to loss of files.

Thanks,
Lolita
