2 possible reasons :

1 - Video controller has failed - (Unlikely as you would normally be left with a plain black screen)
2 - Connector has come loose from main board (very possible due to the way in which they are generally located)

Gray white screen.. Can't hear or feel hard drive or fan


Hi,

It is unfortunate that the Dell Inspiron 1440 has a Gray white screen. Request you to try following the below steps which might help:

    (1)Turn off the computer.
    (2)Remove all the external peripherals like AC Adaptor, flash drives, battery, etc.
    (3)Press and hold the power button for 30sec which releases the static on the computer (if any)
    (4)Put back the battery and plug in the AC Adaptor.
    (5)Let the computer charge for some time.
    (6)Try turning on the computer.

    If the same issue then I would suggest you to try connecting a known good external LCD screen and check if that helps.

    Also check if there are any beep codes from the computer, how the power button light behaves and the system LEDs (located along the front edge of the system next to the media card reader).

    Thanks and Regards.
    Kiran Kumar.

A friends laptop is only showing a white screen


Step 1:
Fix a White Screen on an LCD Monitor

b>When an LCD screen has turned completely white, there are three normal causes: the screen is defective, the video cable is not connected correctly, or the graphics card on the motherboard of the computer is faulty. You will need to troubleshoot these possibilities to determine which problem you have. If you are not experienced in working on computer equipment, you should not attempt to disassemble your LCD screen because you could easily damage it. Seek professional assistance unless you have experience working on computer hardware.

Disconnect the white LCD screen from the computer by unscrewing the blue monitor cable. Connect the working LCD screen to your computer by attaching its blue monitor cable to the same slot. If your computer display does not show on the functioning LCD screen, try rebooting your computer. If it still does not display, the problem is with your computer's graphic card on the motherboard. Seek professional repair assistance. If your computer display shows normally on the working LCD screen, proceed to Step 2. Unplug the LCD monitor with the white screen. Disassemble the rear panel of the monitor with the small screwdriver. Carefully separate the screws into piles so that you can keep track of how to reassemble the monitor. Locate the internal video cable, a gray cable with a plug on the end that connects to the main components of the screen. See the References section for photos of the video cable for assistance. http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2008/04/13/laptop-lcd-screen-turned-white/ Unplug the cable, checking for any debris or blockage. Reconnect the cable firmly. Reassemble the LCD screen. Plug it in and connect it to your computer. If the screen is still white, you have a defective LCD screen. You will need to replace it or take it to a professional repair service for assistance.
b> b> b> Without this test you'll have to guess because as I mentioned before this could either bad motherboard or bad LCD screen.

You'll have to disconnect the video cable from the LCD screen (connector 2) and the inverter board (connectors 3 and 1). After that you connect another working screen and test video. For this purpose I'm using one of my test LCD screens. My test screen is cracked and because of that you see a wide white band in the center but it still works fine for this test.

The original screen is white but my test screen works normal (except the crack of course) and I can see the image. After this test I can tell that the problem must be related to the screen. After I assembled everything back together and connected the original LCD, it's still white. CONCLUSION. In my case this problem is related to the LCD screen and it has to be replaced. b> b>

Lenovo Y410 white screen


All that's left is the Video Cable, and LCD screen, Aberger.

Video Cable connections are tight? LCD screen side, screen Inverter, and motherboard side?

Then a continuity check with a multimeter set to OHMs, for each wire in the cable, or take to a 'Mom and Pop' computer store, and have the tech check it, or replace.

Video Cable checks out, connections check out, the LCD screen is the problem.

My money is on a bad LCD screen, JMHO.
