    When I turn on my Vaio VGN-UX280P a white screen appears before a splash screen with Sony Vaio Logo is displayed, sometimes it turns on normally and works fine, but most cases don´t do it. Even the white screen appears Windows XP is loaded normally and I can connect an external monitor and work perfectly. The Vaio was bought on 09/11/2007 on USA and I´m in Venezuela right now.

Most likely the problem is the screen or other hardware errors.
If it is the screen, then you should be able to see the Hard drive activity LED flashing as things load.

Dunno about a shortcut but often the VGA port has to be enabled in the BIOS which you may not be able to see right now but the control of the display is primitive under Win starts doing it's *magic* so text may still be visible.  I'd try entering the BIOS menu and snoop around.

Screen gets white


I think that problem lies in the LCD cables... mabie in top of screen or mabie in motherboard conectors..

becauseif your lcd would be broken, u could se somethink diffrent than white... White means that Liquid cristals ar not activaed, not filling screen, and this can cause only cable problem, or Physical damage..

How to remove white and black leakage screen


Your lcd screen has gone bad and needs to be replaced. To isolate that it's the screen or the video card borrow a monitor from a relative, neighbor, friend or co-worker and plug it into the laptop. If the borrowed screen displays fine without any problems then your original screen is bad. If the borrowed screen shows the white area with black leakage ink as your old monitor then the video card in the computer is 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.

My acer aspire one laptop screen is completely white how can i fix it


Power down the laptop (press and hold the power button).

Try turning it back on, and hitting the F8 key to get boot options. Start in "Safe Mode" or some other configuration that worked and see if that fixes the issue.

If the screen does not show anything at all, try connecting the laptop to an external monitor while starting up.

White Screen Issues on Toshiba M115-S1061


connections could be good in ribbon cable
but still needs to be replaced

the white screen indicates that the inverter is still good
if the laptop works with desktop monitor, then video card is good
if you tap the lid to the lcd and it goes on and off ,ribbon cable for sure,
everytime you open and close the screen , it tugs on the ribbon cable also , only tape holding this in place

Laptop Screen faded white


There are a couple of possibilities.

1. A cable has come loose inside the computer4.gif.

2. A cable has become defective.

3. The LCD is defective.

If you wiggle the LCD back and forth and you can get the picture to work again intermittently then answers 1 & 2 above would be more likely.
