Diagnosis:
1. Test using an external monitor. If it works, then either the screen bulb or the inverter board might be defective.
2. Test the inverter. Easiest way to do it if you have a good screen with a good bulb. Connect the good screen to the inverter board & test it. If it lights up, then the inverter board is good. If it did not, then the inverter board is bad & needs to be replaced.
3. If the inverter board is good, then we are left with the possibility that the screen bulb is bad. To fix this, we will need to replace the LCD screen.

External monitor only works if I start windows vista in safe mode


First after you boot it up normally (not Safe Mode) can you move the mouse far to the left or to the right do you see the mouse. If you do see the mouse pointer you are running dual monitor mode and the laptop screen is set as the primary monitor. You have to run it in Save Mode and set the external monitor as the primary monitor. Hit the Start button then select Help+Support and in the search box enter "dual monitors". Read how to set up the primary monitor.

Second maybe you need to activate the external monitor. When laptops boot normally (not Safe Mode again) with a external monitor connected you have to hit the Fn (function) key (probably blue near Alt key) and some other number key (it probably has a blue monitor symbol on it) I'm not sure which one. This key sequence is a toggle sequence. In other words when you boot a laptop it goes directly to the laptop screen then the first time you do a Fn + number key combination it will turn on the external monitor and turn off the laptop screen the next time you push Fn+number key it will turn on both monitors (external and laptop screen) the third time it will turn on only the laptop screen and so forth.

Laptop white screen


Maybe the lcd screen is going bad. Try an external monitor. if the external monitor works fine then your lcd screen on the laptop is going bad. If the external monitor behaves the same way, then the Video Card on the computer is going bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if thedisplay shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crtmonitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vgaport. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will showon most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systemswill require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold downthe FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thruF12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will havethe icon of a display.

If this monitor is new return it to the place of purchase, the problem is in the LCD panel display, if out of warranty! cheaper to replace.

I have a fine horizontal line running 2/3rd's of my hp mini note book.should i be concerned?


This could be a hardware issue with the LCD screen of display card. To confirm the same, connect an external monitor and check if the same line appears on external monitor. If external mitor works fine, then its a LCD defect. If you have same issue on both LCD and External monitor, then it could be due to display card. In either cases you may need to take to service center.

Hello, Matt.

Sounds like a conflict with your VGA card driver.

From Safe Mode, go to Add/Remove programs and remove anything related to graphics. Go to Device Manager and remove/uninstall any listings for Graphics Adapter.

When you restart, install the drivers from the CD. If the drivers need to be "executed" as a program, cancel out of the driver install and run the drivers program when you get into Windows.

Hope this helps.

If you're still under warranty, you can diagnose one possible problem easily enough. Blank white screen with the LED indicator lights running normally otherwise will almost always mean that the LCD panel is bad. If you don't have an external monitor available, find a friend with one and hook up the laptop to that monitor. Be sure to have the laptop power off when you attach the monitor cable. Press the power up button and then the Fn+F? (whatever F key has a little icon on iyt showing a monitor) combo to switch to an external monitor. If your laptop's Operating System shows up on the monitor, you know for certain it's jus your LCD panel that's bad and you can ask the manufacturer to replace it.

Sounds like the lcd screen has gone out . Hopefully you still havea warranty on it. But a good way to test if its the lcd screen or the graphics card is to hook it up to a external monitor and see if the pitcure comes up if it does then its the lcd if it doesnt then its the graphics or motherboard itself
