Buy a new computer from the sound of it, or take it to a repairer, if the screen is white instantly after power on, there is noting that you can do yourself.

It seems that you're having issues with internal video card. Here are the steps that you can try to identify the problem:

1. .connect your notebook to an external monitor.

2. activate the external monitor by pressing fn+f4. the display should transfer on the external monitor. If you're still getting a white screen it means your video card (motherboard) is bad. if you get a display from your external monitor, it means your lcd panel is bad and your video card works fine.

Good luck,

Ryan

White disply how to repar


Usually an all white display means that the connector from the screen to the main board has come loose. If you feel comfortable enough, split the case open and look for the connection for the screen. If the phone was dropped and this happened, it's likely the scenario that fits the best for an easy repair. You may need some specialty tools ( read: tiny jewelers screwdrivers ) to open it up completely to get access to the screen. Otherwise someone that advertises that they fix small electronics could check it out for you for really cheap, if they charge you anything at all.

When you flip phone open inside screen stays white


Moto RAZR phones are notorious for this. Best thing to do - Get a new phone. Inside of the hinge, there is a sensor that detects if the phone is open or shut. When you open the phone, it still thinks its closed, so the screen stays white, and if im correct the outside display should still work. Pretty much not-fixable unless you know someone who can take it apart and re-position the sensor (will void the warranty)

Best thing to do....Upgrade.

Screen fades to white


Most probably failure in the LCD controller IC in the lcd controller board. that no signal was sent out to the lcd driver IC thus you could only see white display. A replacement of LCD panel is the best solution. best regards
