My computer screen is white

Walked into the office today and the screen is white....i know the computer is working fine because i can log into it from from another computer. I believe it may be something with the contrast or brightness, but I cannot change it back to normal...any suggestions are appreciated!

Here are the things I would try:

First, if you have another monitor I would plug it in to see if the problem is actually your monitor or something else. If you don't have access to another monitor then I would try to reset the monitor to factory defaults. I know this will not be easy because you cannot see the screen, but I looked at the manual and I believe this is how to do it:

Press the "1" button on the monitor, then press the downward arrow 6 times, then press the "2" button. I think this will reset the monitor. Take a look at the manual:

And you'll see what I mean.

If that does not work, I would double check your cable connections (you have probably already done that). I woud then use Device Manager to make sure there's no known problem with your video adapter. To use Device Manager do this:

Right click on My Computer and select properties. Now select the Hardware tab and then click on Device Manager. Find the entry for your display adapter and verify there are not exclamation points or question marks next to it. If there are, let me know and we'll go a different route.

If the above does not pan out I would reboot the computer in Safe Mode to see what happens. Safe Mode loads Windows with a very minimal set of drivers including the most basic VGA driver available as opposed to the more capable one your most likey using now. If the monitor works in Safe Mode then it's most likely a software problem, but it does not totally rule out the possibility that the VGA hardware is going bad.

If it worked in Safe Mode then I would try a System Restore to a date before the problem began. To use System Restore do this:

Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore.

It's pretty self-explanitory and it will restore many critical files that may have become corrupted. It will take a while to complete, but it is reversible so you have little to lose.

If all of this fails to help then I would do whatever you need to find another monitor to plug in before you go any further. It could be a bad monitor after all.

Now the editorial section. I don't get paid for this. I know it's a strange hobby, but I like to help if I can. If you found any of this helpful I hope you'll give this post a positive rating. Nearly half of the solutions I've posted have never been rated. Thanks and good luck.

It would appear that I am not the only one who had a white screen problem. I say 'had' because I fixed the problem easily and everything is back to normal with colors and the elimination of non-responsive clicks on web pages with the white screen.

The White Screen of Death (WSoD), not to be confused with the BSoD, infiltrated my computer several weeks ago, and I finally eliminated the problem by changing my Back Ground Theme (which I had for years) in the Control Panel, Personalization, Windows 7, to another theme, "Blue Skies", which I downloaded from Windows' other themes.

I am amazed at my simple discovery, but it worked for me. I can't imagine why the first theme went bad, but I assume in through out the years, my updates, upgrades, changes, and downloads of other applications finally destroyed the integrity of the original theme.

This fix will probably work with any Windows theme and not just "Blue Skies".

    Many thanks for the suggestion - it worked for us!! The computer screen kept going white, but only for one user, so after changing the theme/background (we have windows XP) for that user - got a few seconds to do this before the screen went white, everything is back to normal. Thank you.

Does Hijaak Pro version 5 run on Windows 7 64-bit? I was running it fine on XP Pro SP2 (I believe). I have now installed it on my new laptop the newer OS and it fails to let me open any files...saying...

I installed it today on my system - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit operating system. It installed and took a while, but I didn't select the CAD drawing part to install; I just selected the Hijaak part to install to get screen clips. That part installed, and works, but differently than on XP. You can't change the option for the key to get the clip, so it is Ctrl/Shift/C. Then a white screen comes up (wish it didn't). If you know about where it was you wanted to clip from the picture you were seeing, you can select it using your choice that was set up before the clip - rectangle, window, screen, free selection, star, etc.. On the white screen make your "blind" selection and then it clips from the picture you were viewing. Then you can paste this into a MS Word or Photoshop. If that white screen didn't come up covering your picture, it would work fine -- don't know how you could get rid of that. In Photoshop the layers show the background as total white and then your clip as the 2nd layer and it has the white outside the selected area, which can be inverted to delete that white background. If anyone knows a work-around to not have that white screen cover up what you want to see - that would be great!

Also in the Windows Pro 7 64-bit you can choose to install Windows XP SP3 from the MS site and work with your old programs that way. I haven't tried this.

My HP DV5 1159se was working fine last night and then this morning I go to turn it on as usual and a blank white screen comes up. The start tones are the same and I could even type my password in to log on...

If the inverter board or the back light behind the screen were bad your display would be blank, "but windows would be visible barely" the white screen indicates a bad LCD and must be changed. It is also possible the video cable from the motherboard to the screen has come loose and will need to be reseated back into place to fix it.

My computer screen is white

When it turns colors that usually means one of four things. 1 cable is not set write, 2 monitor is bad, 3 settings are out of whack or 4 the video card is going bad. I would try to mess with the cables and if that does not work plug that monitor into another computer to see if it work and plug a new monitor into that one. You should be able to solve what it is then.
Good luck

First of all go for monitor self test. disconnect your monitor cable from the back of ur CPU and turn on ur monitor, if you see some colour(red, blue, green etc) boxes in any shape that means your monitor is fine, make sure colours are not hazy. If this succeeds that check the pins of the monitor connector, make sure pins are not bent or broken. Just Give it a try ... Cheers!!
