My Hollywood story game screen went white. When I go to the app it welcomes me back, but stays white. Nothing happens. I've spent so much money on this game!


If you are playing it on Facebook, I would recommend clearing your browser cache and restarting your computer. This often fixes online game issues.

When i start using my laptop , suddenly white screen and forcible shutdown,.


It sounds like it's overheating, make sure the airways are clear of dust and listen for the sound of the fan inside, this could have failed..
if the processor overheats it automatically cuts out and what you describe is exactly that..
good luck !

Computer Screen turns black, Computer still runs.


Brownsterz,

This sounds to me like the game, caused a fault in your video driver that somehow adjusted your resolution/refresh rate to something beyond your monitors range.

If this is the case we can fix it. Restart your computer just after the logo screen push <F8> which should bring up the startup options for Windows. Select "Start in safe mode" Once up in safe mode adjust the "Display settings" to a more modest resolution either 1024 X 768 or 800 X 600 ( don't worry this is just temporary)

Then restart the system and this time it should let you get into your desktop without the "Black out".

Now go to AMD.com and go through their support page to find the latest drivers for your ATI card (AMD bought ATI a while back) download and install these drivers. then after the reboot you should be all set to change your display back to what your comfort levels are.

If this gets you back to normal, then you had a driver conflict error that corrupted your video cards driver. Try playing the game again, if you get the same symptoms AGAIN then reduce the resolution that the game runs at and/or turn down or off antialiasing / anisotropic filtering and that should reduce the odds of it reoccuring.

If this procedure doesn't help you, please comment back with your results and I will figure out what else went wrong.

Thanks Dave

Computer freezing- blank white screen


Check your connecting cables to the monitor. They can become loose or you may have a cracked cable.

Is my screen broken?


Hello, I am really sorry about what happened to your laptop.
99% of those cases require a replacement of the screen.
I suggest you should visit a technician and check if there is a broken part of the screen where is leaking a liquid. Laptop screens have liquid crystals and probably that liquid is leaking inside.
For sure the laptop screen can be bought seperately and it can be replaced.
