    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.

I have the White Screen of Death


Try pressing the reset button underneath the antenna and if this doesn't help, then you'll need to have the LCD display replaced.

White screen, have to do a soft restart and then words show up


I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.
