Hello I have got suddenly a white screen after starting the 5 year old Dell inspiron 1300. In the background the typicall sound of the Windows XP startprocedure can be heard, but I dont get any readable...


Hi holm_fischer,

White screen often caused by a defective screen. The easiest way to determine if you have a hardware or software problem is by performing a power drain. Please follow the steps below for additional instructions.

Power Drain:
1. Turn off the computer.

2. Unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet and take out the battery from the system.

3. Now, press the power button for about 15-20 seconds.

4. Put back the battery in and plug the AC adapter.

5. Turn on the system and try observing it.
--> If power drain did not work, you need to consult a repairman to have your screen be checked for possible damage.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

White screen with black vertical hypen lines???


Hi, you should get an update for your graphics driver and the Bios update. After the updates for the driver. Do a hard reset. To do a hard reset. We need to shutdown the notebook. Remove the battery. Remove the power cord. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Do not expect the turn on. That would be weird. Actually we are trying to reset something internally. After this. Test if the issue goes away. Hope this helps!

I keep getting a full white screen on my laptop, how do i get rid of it


See if it is the laptop monitor by hooking up an external monitor. If that monitor works, your laptop screen has a connection bad that might be caused by the ribbon cable (if the cable carries the common), but given the symptoms, it can almost be assumed that some type of power problem exist with the lcd layer. The screen would be all white if the common circuit is open. The screen is white because the backlight is showing - because there are no darkened lcd pixels.
In all probability the monitor itself is not bad, it just has no lcd layer power. Another problem could be in the the video board where the output to the back gives power but does not power the resident laptop screen. Most likely it is a connection though.
If you are inclined (and it is out of warranty!), carefully disassemble it and start gently pressing connectors or wiggling (careful!) the cables. Chances are, the screen will try to work. Find the bad connection this way and burnish the contacts if needed, add contact grease (smathering only) and reseat the cables.

Msi vr610 fan very noisy.how do i cure, get new part


Its a typical failure of MSI fans from those times. Unfortunately the exchange part will not solve your problem. (I read it in comments lots of times.) I own a VR610 and fixed the problem with grease. I disassembled the fan and took out the paddle wheel. I cleaned the pin and the hole both and filled the hole with grease. I used small portion of (lithium based) grease like on bicycle. The fan is noiseless since 1,5 years. :)

White screen or some times white vertical lines at start up


I had similar problem. Sometimes the screen goes white while working under windows and repositioning the display, but most of the time it goes white during power up. I decided to check the display cabling by removing the speaker/power-button panel and display coverings. Although I couldn't find a loose cable, the display was consistently working properly. I put it back together and so far so good.
To expose the wiring:
1. Power off, unplug power cord, and remove battery.
2. Open display all the way flat with the keyboard.
3. The speaker/power-button panel is also the cover for the display hinges. You can pry the panel off by prying up the hinge covers from the sides facing center.
4. The inside display covering is fasten with four screws in the corners covered by the rubber bumpers.
5. The outer display shell is attached by 6 screws. 2 on each hinge and 1 on either side of the LCD unit.
6. The mic and camera cables can be unpluged by gentle prying the plugs out.
