IF YOU TAKE THE HEATSINK AND FAN OUT AND BLOW THE DUST OUT OF THEM IT MAY HELP AS THE PROCESSOR MIGHT BE OVERHEATING WITH AC POWER. MAKE SURE TO REINSTALL THE HEATSINK WITH THE PROCESSOR PIN PAD IN THE UNLOCKED POSITION THEN TIGHTEN TO THE LOCKED POSITION.

Sounds like a motherboard fault/short, especially if youv'e got on board graphics and if there are smells coming from fan.

Yellow screen


You could try re-installing the graphics drivers, but it may be more serious, you may need to take to a local tech for testing as it could be 1 of 3 possible faults, graphics chipset, LCD/LED display or the LCD/LED display cable, let me know what happens. good luck.

Dell Laptops (Has power no display issues)

1. Immediately run PSA. (Make sure laptop is connected to AC Adapter. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the Fn key then press power button once).

2. Just wait for about 3 to 5 minutes then you might will hear beeping sounds (no display with beeping sounds) this means that laptop is working fine but no display. This might cause by either the video card or LCD.

3. After hearing beeps turn off laptop. (Press and hold on the power button for about 3 seconds)

4. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the D key then press power button once. If full screen colors appears this means LCD is working fine and the problem is the video card. If no display from the LCD no colors were displayed try the test again just to make sure. If still the same no full screen colors then the problem is the LCD.

White screen


The white screen you are getting is it just right after turning on the computer? If yes it means that you were not able to see the Dell logo correct?

Try connecting an external monitor thru VGA. While monitor and laptop is on with white screen please do this. Hold down Fn key then press F8 at the same time. This will toggle the display from the laptop to external monitor. If laptop displays to external monitor means that laptop LCD needs to be replaced.

If you do not have an external monitor try this.
While laptop is OFF. Do this. Hold down the D key then press power button at the same time.
Check if the laptop will display colors the whole screen. If you still see white screen then LCD needs replacement.

LCD mean LCD panel or the whole screen together with LCD cable and Inverter.

Hope this helps.

A white screen display on my laptop


Hello,


You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB. If the laptop will not boot by doing this, take it to the nearest repair center or contact ASUS (if in warranty) to have it check for LCD problem.

Possible bad connection on the LCD cable. Check and reseat the cable on both end( the cable to the laptop and the cable to the LCD panel). If that doesn't work you will need to replace the cable.

White Display


Here is two solutions:

1. Grab a LCD Color Tester, Run it through RGB.
- If it is still white its the LCD
-If it not at all either the inverter board is bad or the mainboard.

2. Sometimes its brightness control, look under the manual.

I think there is some severe problem in the VGA of the laptop, that is not supporting your LCD. There may be some thing relating to a very sensitive golden color strip in the laptop that is used to VGA signals. If you have opened the laptop for repairing then it can be a issue. Better to try another VGA first and then tell me what happened.

The white screen tells me that the display cable (inside your monitor) may be unattached or broken.
The color bands if they are vertical or horizontal lines tell me that your display cable needs to be replaced.

So overall replace your display cable. If this doesn't entirely fix the problem your logic board (inside the monitor) needs to be replaced.
