Q: My laptop display is white

anybody help me .. my laptop display is white

Preferred Solution: My laptop display is white

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: My laptop display is white

Hmmm...check your dispaly properties and make sure its set to dual output. that is not the exact name of the option but it should be of that nature. hope it helps.

Dell Inspiron M731R
When turning on the laptop it has white screen at boot-up. I hooked up an external monitor(hdmi) and when it reaches the window 8.1 splash screen then the external monitor kicks in and everything works fine(laptop lcd is still white with vert and horizontal lines (I can kind of see whats displayed). But when I tried in safe mode the external monitor doesn't display anything. I can barely make out what is displaying on the laptop but when I try to project on to the external monitor I get a message 'your PC can’t project to a second screen. Try reinstalling the driver or using a different video card. 
Could it be an inverter for the white screen and driver for not projecting in safe mode? Reinstall the display adapter?

I have an intermittent problem with my Dell Inspiron 2650.

Occassionaly, the display gets screwed... but not in anyway I've read about on google so that's why I've joined here to see if anyone knows what may be the cause and can recommend a solution.

White stops getting displayed correctly, everything else is fine. Only areas that should be white seem to be affected. Other light colours, even almost white seem unaffected. The white areas become grey, first light grey, then after a while dark.

The first time this happened I thought I would have to buy a new Laptop, but the problem went away. Now it's come back (after several months). It's very annoying as I must work with imaging programmes... not really possible when you can't see white correctly.

The laptop is about 8 years old (so no free repair from dell). Windows XP sp2. Has anyone else experienced this?

A:Laptop Display Problems: White appears greys, other colours ok

Try moving screen in different angle to check if the problem is from the connection of your lcd....if nothings happen try to unisntall and reinstall the video card driver. If all fails contact dell support.

Hi All,From the past few days my laptop is showing a spot on left corner of the display. It shows as pink when the background is white and sometimes it looks like there is no spot at all- like for example when the background is blue or something. I am attaching the photos as well The cursor is still visible at the back  as you can see as well. I sense it is some pixel issue and I am quite worried about it. Ideas please?Thanks in advance.

I turned my HP 15-R006TU laptop to hibernate mode before going to sleep last night. Today morning when I turned it on left half of the screen was white with some lines in it.

I have not changed any drivers or anything recently. I have windows 7 ultimate 64 bit and I use Tata Photon Max dongle for internet.My laptop is only 2 years old. I did nothing that I can remeber to damage the laptop and Last I used it, everything was fine. what should I do?  How to fix this? can virus do this or is it display problem?

Hello. Since a year ago I have been seeing white lines across the screen of my laptop. I have a Sony Vaio VGN-NR430E Laptop. The white lines/band running horizontally across the screen is not permanent, and goes off if point pressure is applied from the top coverside of the screen, or on the face of the screen.

The problem seems like a lose connection but one could not be found when the laptop was opened up.

Do note, that the LCD screen does work and does not go off or black when these white lines take over. Also the white lines are not constantly going across the screen and usually only last for a few seconds. Also when the laptop is hooked up to a TV via a VGA cable, the white horozontal lines do not show up on the TV even when they are on the computer.

A:Daily white lines across Sony VAIO laptop display

The LCD panel needs to be replaced. It probably got damaged by excessive pressure on the top of the closed laptop, one too many times

Hey all. I have a 5 yr. old HP Pavilion dv6t 3200 CTO Laptop. I have had a 1/4 " white vertical line on the right side on my display for awhile now. It is there all the time, even in safe mode, even when I run computer error scan.( Black Screen with white line still) The pointer will disappear under the white line when trying to scroll making this difficult. I have used HDMI cable to my TV and the display on it shows no white line. I then assume that it is either the screen or the display cable. I would have to open it up either way, but was wondering if there is a way to figure out which is the culprit ? Or just go for a new screen, just do not want to open it and replace screen to find out cable is bad. Any ideas ? Thanks

A:Vertical white line right side of Hp dv6t 3200 laptop display

I believe the HP Pavilion dv6t 3200 has integrated graphics, meaning the graphics are soldered to the motherboard.
It is possible that it is the screen, but personally i think it could be the graphics chip. You mentioned that when you connect to an external display the "white line" is no longer visible.

You refer to the cable possibly being the problem are you referring to the HDMI cable or the cable that connects the screen to the motherboard?

If you are talking about the cable that connects the screen to the motherboard, the cable is soldered to the screen therefore if it is the cable a new screen will be needed. Can you take a picture of the line you are seeing please as this will help me diagnose the problem.

Hello. This laptop is almost a year old (still under warranty). It was in HP service center and their conclusion is that everything is OK with laptop because they could not reproduce error with their HDD and their OS (that is what they actually said). Problem is with display. From time to time (not always) thin white line is shown on top of blue or gradiant blue or similar color (I'm attaching links to photos because they are too large to upload - if you look closely at photos, you will notice it on blue color): Photo 1Photo 2 Now, I picked up laptop from service last week and my warranty is valid for 2 more weeks or something like that. Any suggestions what to do? It seems that HP Service Center (MR Servis d.o.o., Zagreb, Croatia, Europe) doesn't care or they are not capable to properly test laptop. I paid for laptop almost 1.000,00? and month or two after warranty goes out I will have broken laptop? Thanx in advance,Stanislav Vlasic

I have the same problem. When turning on the laptop screen goes to white, I can hear windows starting but cannot see anything. I connected it to an external monitor, which will only display once windows has loaded. I then took the whole laptop apart and discovered the LCD cable was frayed due to a faulty laptop hinge. I replaced the cable and it was the same, just white. The problem I think is with the motherboard and the intergrated video card. Upon taking the whole thing apart I noticed that where the video card plugs in is right where the heat sink is and the cooling fan which gets exceptional hot. I figure it has fried the board to the extend the monitor will not work where it is plugged in, but the external monitor will work but only when windows boots. So sad to say because of the the heat this laptop puts off and if you have it sitting on your lap or bed or anywhere else that it cannot cool properly it has over heated and you will have to get a new motherboard.

A:Laptop screen starts up white and stays white

"I connected it to an external monitor, which will only display once windows has loaded"... This is normal behavior because the video signal to the external monitor is not sent until Windows loads. If you can see normal video, the motherboard video chip is good

I have read and tried many different suggestions, but I have no idea what is going on. The white on my dad's laptop is showing up with thin aqua vertical stripes in it. I have tried many different things (system restore, updating drivers, etc) and nothing has worked. The only thing that helped a little was when I calibrated it and it made the white in the window look white, but everything on the desktop that was supposed to be white, was not.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on here?

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

Did you check with external monitor, if the same issue occurs then it could be with the system board.

Well I had my computer on sleep last night. The power went out.. which shouldn't be a problem, as the computer went to the regular resuming windows(vista 64) screen and everything seemed to load up correctly. However, when the desktop came up everything was black and white!

I've had the Nvidia GTX 260 216-core for a few months and it has worked pretty well, except for a few odd sounds. (clicking, buzzing)

I just updated my drivers in the last couple weeks. Tried restarting. Tried changing settings in the nvidia control panel. Nothing worked. Please help!

For no apparent reason a band of white that fades at the edges now appears down the centre of my display. It comes and goes when I log on/off, I'm sure the display is fine as it's brand new. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced a virus or worm that would cause this.
The display is a 19" HANNS-G using a DVI cable to connect. I'm new to this so I'm hoping I've posted OK.

A:White Line Down Display

Hi mickbenn,

Try a new driver(s). Look for new drivers for your video card and display and try that first.
Try reseating the video card and reconnect all cables.

One word about something being new... it doesn't mean it cannot fail. In my experiences, parts fail very early - dead out of box/dead in a month - or the fail after being in service for a while. (Of course there is the occasional lightning kill ) If you can try your display on another computer, or try another display on your computer, that will help rule out parts.

I hope this helps...

My laptop has been diagnosed with a display issue.There are white patches on the display edges which are undetected in the day time and with using low brightness.And when I raised this issue up to HP ,they simply tried to get away by pushing the blame on me.This is not what we expect from a company with such a repute.Like how can one detect such problems when one purchases in the day time?And no one has the time to look for minute details during buying.And when one actually detects it,the company tries to make it look out fault.Seriously very disappointed.

I am having somewhat of an issue with the video options for Black & White 2....The problem is, that I would like to play the game with maximum display options, but it only restricts me to low, or on or off in the check box things... It is quite frustrating because B&W 2 looks like such a beautiful game, and as far as I know, my PC setup meets all of the requirements. Here are my specs:

Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3000+, MMX, 3DNow, ~2.0GHz
Memory: 1024MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c

Display Memory: 256.0 MB
Monitor Max Res: 1600,1200
Driver Version: 6.14.0010.5673 (English)

As you can see, my system meets all of the requirements, so I do not understand why it will not allow me to play the game at full settings. Even with the lowest possible resolution, it will not. I also updated the drivers for my video card, so I know there is nothing wrong with that... Please help a f00 out you guys!
edit: I also uninstalled and reinstalled, and downloaded the 1.1 patch, and it is still doing the same thing... It also crashed a few times.. lol

I have a 2014 era Lenovo X1 Carbon (20A7 -- not sure if it's 2nd or 3rd generation -- it's the one with the touchbar along the top of the keyboard)I get a number of bright white spots on my display. I had the screen replaced and this fixed the problem, but only temporarily. The spots came back exactly as before. Today, the IBM tech came in to fix the touchpad and I had him look at the display a second time. He removed the screen from the laptop lid to see if something was pressing against the display -- which would explain why two different displays would exhibit the same problem over time. Behind the screen is what looks to be an antenna that runs diagonally from about an inch down from upper left to the lower right corner. Sure enough, the white spots are appearing along this diagonal. When I run my finger across the antenna, I felt it was a bit lumpy in the area of the white spots with some speck of debris exactly behind where the brightest spot is. This makes me wonder if the irregularity in the antenna installation, as subtle as it is, is causing the backlight to become damaged over time.Lenovo seem inclined to just replace the display, but this doesn't seem to be the complete remedy. The mis-installation of the antenna in the backlid is the root cause of the problem

I've encountered an issue that is new to me. I'm working on an HP pavillion dv9000 notebook with the nvidia GeForce Go 6150 with the nForce 410 chip set and the AMD Turion 64 X 2 Mobile TL - 56 processor, using Windows Vista Home Premium.

I'm also aware that HP has identified a number of defects involving Nvidia cards that are utilized on the dv9000 notebooks. This computer is well beyond that warrenty period, so that is not an option.

Earlier today, after a few days without any power source, I replaced the video cable and the notebook LCD display was flawless, for about 3 hours, after which it went to a solid white. I restarted and got the same results. Restarted with an external monitor attached and the external monitor display the desktop properly while the LCD display was once again a sold white - indicates that its just displaying the backlight. When I say solid white, I mean no latent image at all.

I tested against a second LCD panel and got the same results - solid white (just getting the backlight).

Everything seems to point to a problematic systemboard. However, my question is, has anyone ever encountered a notebook LCD panel with an intermittant failure? Where it will display properly for a while and then displays a solid white? From my experience, they either work or they don't.

Recently fairly often, defintely intermittent, when starting up my PC, the display fails to produce the usable XP desktop. Instead, the screen is totally white, no cursor, key press has no effect. Must reset or power off and then on again to reboot the PC. Then, XP starts correctly and a usable desktop appears.
My only fix attempt was to refresh the display driver to the latest available.
My system info appears below.

I've been using my TV as a second monitor to watch movies for about a month now with no problems. But today when I tried to watch a movie I got a black and white image from the TV. Everything is displaying correctly (with sound) but there just isn't any color coming from the TV.

I've ruled out the cables being the problem, as well as the TV, because they all work fine under different circumstances.

I've looked for a solution on the internet and now have wound up here with no success. I've tried changing the signal format from NTSC to PAL (i.e. M/NTSC --> B/PAL; though when I change the settings here, the computer changes both displays, one and two, to NTSC or PAL; meaning I can't have one as a PAL and the other as NTSC), disconnecting and reconnecting all cables, and of course re-booting.

My computer is a Dell Dimension 9100, with Microsoft Windows XP ver. 2002, SP3. The information that comes up from my ATI Catalyst Control Center says that the graphics adapter is a Radeon X600 256MB HyperMemory [DELL E173FP]/[Default TV]. Oh and the TV's a Magnavox, but like I said, the TV's working fine (cable, PS3).

I'm not sure what other information to give right now so let me know if I need to provide anything else.

Also feel free to contact me via e-mail if it suits you (<email removed>).

I'm lost! I have little knowledge about computers. However, I moved my home computer from one room to another and noticed that the display was a little off skilter when I got it up and running again. I went in to Start, Control panel, display and screen resolution. I slid that little arrow all the way to the right and when I clicked apply (or whatever), the screen went all white and it has lots of white noise. I can see the "ghost" of screens but I can't really see to do anything. Have I ruined my monitor? will buying a new monitor take care of the problem? I' really don't know how to get it taken care of. Thanks for any input!

A:Changed Monitor Resolution, Now The Display Is All White

Don't panic Is it Windows XP? Turn your computer off, (unplug it or keep power button pressed); turn it on again; immediately after the POST (the very first messages you see on screen after power-on) press F8 key repeatedly, until a list of options appear; choose the one that says "VGA mode" (can't remember the exact words); once Windows finish loading, your screen will be configured at minimum resolution and you can choose the right resolution or let Windows apply the best by itself.

If you have Windows 98 or ME, select the "Safe mode" option from the list after pressing F8 key, once Windows has loaded; go to screen properties, it must be configured to 640X480 at 16 colors; click on "Apply"; you'll see a warning about changes taking effect upon restart; accept and restart. When Windows has restarted, change resolution and color depth again (you'll have to do it twice: one for color and another for resolution).

Good luck.

A:Lenovo G580 screen goes white display

hi sameerjha28,
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
You can try doing this:
-Turn off the computer.
-Unplug AC Adapter and remove the battery.
- Hold the Power button Down for at least 10-15 seconds, Then try reconnecting the AC adapter only and leave the battery out, turn it ON and see if it will make any difference.
- If it powered on Try it with the battery and check if it would still turn on properly.
If the above steps did not work Try an external monitor and check if it works there.
I would suggest Contact Lenovo Technical Support for service if the steps above did not help.
Hope this helps,

On my Dell Studio 1749 a vertical white line has appeared about 3 inches in from the left hand side.  It started off about 1mm wide but is gradually increasing in width and is now about 4mm wide.  There is no problem on an external monitor when connected.
Is this likely to be a fault with the panel or a chip problem?
Thank you.

A:Vertical white line appeared on display.

Hi  Ian,
This could be an issue with the LCD. To isolate the issue follow below steps:

Check if the vertical lines appear in BIOS screen (Restart the computer and tap F2 on Dell logo).
Also restart the computer and check the display in Safe mode (Restart the computer and press F8 on Dell logo and select Safe mode)
Run the diagnostics on the computer (Restart the computer by holding the” D” and power button and wait till the LCD test completes) and let me know the test result for LCD.

Awaiting your response!

First I am fairly sure MS doesnt have a windows 7 version called "ultimate black edition". Where did you purchase it?

We can only support legit software according to site rules.

My computer is acting strangely. When I type in an address or google search for a link, most of the time (not always) a white page will show up with a list of symbols. I can not access my Gmail account either, it again just shows symbols across the page. I have also lost the icons for Firefox and MalwareBytes and Adobe Flash player keeps crashing. I'm not sure if these all related, but I would appreciate your help!

Thank You!

Hi, I was working away on my laptop earier and Microsoft and the screen has turned black and white.  I was typing at the time so haven't adjusted any settings.  The screen is capable of displaying colour as when I re-boot the system I get coloured photographs - but as soon as Microsoft gets started it's black and white through all the applications/files/photographs.  It is just literally out of warranty - Can anyone help please?  Thanks in advance.

The computer is a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop Computer running Windows Vista.
Last night a small white line randomly appeared underneath the taskbar, bumping it up a millimeter and then it grew and covered the whole taskbar and parts above it as shown in the pictures (attatched).
This white line shakes a bit and reflects the actions of the mouse (Pic 2).

I restarted the computer to see if it would fix it but instead, i got a BSoD when the computer turned back on.

Can you please tell me the resolutions to this and if you need any further info ill post it.

If possible go ahead and send a crash dump over. Though honestly that looks like the backlight on the monitor has gone crazy, or perhaps a video problem, so the bsod may be unrelated. Still doesn't hurt to try.

At least from the pictures that looks like it's a physical light being emitted from the back (kinda like the monitor went bonkers there on the bottom) and less of a software predicament. Again though, best to test out software possibilities before considering it hardware.
