    Inspiron 1525 boots fine and about five minutes it goes white and doesn't come back. If you hit the HOME keep the dialog box for Dell Media comes up and the task bar apprears. Close the dialog and everything goes white again. Restart the machine and it comes up and repeats above.



    I had just install AVG-8.0 when this started. Any connection?

If the display on the external monitor is fine in that case it is an issue with the LCD as you get a video output on external monitor
you have to get the LCD either repaired or replaced.

I have the same problem. I have to connect my laptop to an external and reinstall the ATI drivers, shutdown, disconnect the power cable, pull out the battery, put the battery back in and reboot.

It's not a hardware problem, it's a software problem. Do not replace your screen. It will cost more than your laptop is worth.

Now if somebody has a real solution, that would be great. Thanks.

Computer screen is white and blank..the last thing i did was run a disk defrag and now its completely white...i dont know how to reset the monitor and i hook it up to my laptop to a double monitor options...


Not sure what you mean by resetting the monitor but pulling the power should get it back so you can see the Onscreen menu. If you can get inot the menu there is usually a reset or factory reset option.

As for dual screen w/laptop. The hardest part is telling the laptop to use the extra monitor. On my laptop the Function Key and F8 cycle the external monitor. You also need to tell windows if the new monitor sits to the left or the right of the laptop so the mouse works correctly.

Blank screen/white screen


Plug in a monitor to the VGA connector on the side. The white screen usually indicates a failed inverter. By using an external monitor you will cut down the likely causes.

Laptop screen blank all white


Either your LCD Video Cable is not plugged in snuggly or the monitor is slowly going bad. The fact that you can see the images on an external monitors says your Video Graphics Card is working fine. You'll need to disassemble the laptop to get to the cables. Get a quote from your local computer shops, then try the guys at: http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com Most times they will fix it and ship it back by Fedex or UPS cheaper than any quote you obtained including the shipping.

Blank white screen in my Acer Travelmate 5730 Laptop


Hello Karthik,
This must surely be a problem with your monitor, because you say that you see the white screen while boot up. If this is a graphic driver issue, you may have the problem after booting up in windows. Since its been only a month old laptop, the product must be in warranty for sure. Take away any CDs in the drive, any USB drives and see if this white screen appears. Let us know.

Thank you!

Montor shows a blank white screen and is unresponsive


Please try to connect the monitor to another PC, if it continues to happen, then probably an internal electronic part/s of your monitor is cold soldered / defective which failed to send signal to other hardware parts of your monitor thus you only see white display. I suggest to bring the unit to an authorized service center fix / replace the cold soldered / defective part/s. regards

Purchased a Acer Aspire 2930z. i get a blank white screen.


Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the laptop up, if you get a normal image on the external monitor then you have a faulty LCD screen and may be replaced. If you still get a white screen then you most likely have a faulty video card.

The video card is part of the motherboard and usually cannot be repaired, the motherboard is normally replaced but it may not be cost effective to replace. If the laptop is a several years old then it is time to get a new one.
