New laptop screen shows just a blank white screen

Q: New laptop screen shows just a blank white screen

I've got a problem with my laptop, a 2010 HP G60-635DX. First, a little history. This was my wife's laptop until she dropped it and broke the display screen. We hooked it up to a monitor and she was good to go. Last Christmas I got her a new computer and again she was all set. In the meanwhile I've been using this old Dell laptop from 2006 with WinXP in it. Works, but is slow as all get out. A few months ago I decided to use my wife's old computer for myself. It comes with Windows 7 and works quite well. Last June I made the mistake of trying the Windows 10 upgrade, and what a disaster that turned out to be. So I reverted back to Win7, but I lost all the drivers that came with it, so I was stuck. So recently I bought a new screen for my wife's old computer, and I installed it today. So guess what? The screen works fine, but all I get is a blank white screen Nothing at all! It's as if the computer can't display anything at all. I just don't understand it. The computer fires up, but that's it. No start screen, no nothing. Just a blank white screen.
Anybody have any ideas as to what's wrong, and how I could fix this?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: New laptop screen shows just a blank white screen

I got the computer working! Last night I rechecked the connections to the screen and made sure that they were solid, then all of a sudden the Startup Utility came on, asking me what I wanted to do. So I opted to wipe the HD clean and revert it to the original factory specs (don't worry, I have all important files backed up already). I made sure the connector cable was in there good, then I stuck a piece of electrical tape on it just for safety. Now the computer runs as good as new, and I don't have to spend any money taking it in to a shop.
 
The moral of the story is this - always check and recheck your connections. Lesson learned!

I have a curious error occurring on an Advent 7006 laptop loaned to me by a friend.

A few days ago it booted just fine and was running well but tonight I fired it up and got a blank white screen with some fine lines vertically. No bootup splash screen, no HDD check - it's just white from the moment the machine comes on.

The laptop shunts around a bit then all HDD activity stops, the screen goes off and it goes through the same thing all over again. Nothing has been installed, updated, modified or hacked about with - it simply decided not to come back up again.

I plugged my monitor into the laptop to ascertain whether it may be screen failure and I get vertical black and white bars. The laptop had been left without power for some days so the battery may be low.

I have googled some, but have found nothing of significant relevance and wondered whether anyone else has encountered this before?

I fear that deep down it may be hardware failure (and in all honesty, being a bloody Advent it's likely to be). Any ideas before I tell the person who loaned it to me????

Best,

First thing to check/replace is the wiring harness that runs between the mainboard and display.  If that doesn't solve the problem, replace the LCD screen.

I just bought an Acer AL2216W monitor for my Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop. Sometimes it works like it should , but after a while the screen turns white. It still gets a signal to turn on and off using the function keys, but it is white. If I remove the software and reinstall, it works for a while, but then turns white again after several hours.

When using my dell laptop, the screen will get quick tiny color lines and then go white blank and the only way to get it back up is to close my computer and wait about 2 minutes and sometimes I have to do this several times. This usually only happens if my computer is not plugged but also happens when it is just not as often. Any suggestions you have would be awesome! Thanks!

I connected it to an external monitor and it still shows the white-blank screen on the external monitor. I did an HDD test in the BIOS and the hard disk passed the test. I un-seated the ram and re-seat it but still I get white-blank screen.

I'm not sure if this is one virus or if my computer has somehow picked up several, but it is pretty much completely screwed. I can't access ANYTHING properly so i am posting this message from another computer.

This is what happens when I turn my computer on:

1. blank blue screen with program error message: "explorer.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows....".
2. if i click "ok" the message goes away and i am left with a blank blue screen and i have to reboot the computer
3. if i don't click ok windows starts to load up an looks normal at first but then another error message pops up (the same one) and the screen turns black and says some junk like "Warning! You're in danger!" and then some junk about spyware.
4. then a few seconds later another error message pops up and the screen turns white and says "Active Desktop Recovery. Microsoft Windows has experienced and unexpected error..." It gives me an option to "click here to restore" but nothing happens when i do click it.

Yes, you've got a few malware entries in there (a CoolWebSearch hijack, and a couple of trojans), though it's not going to be easy to remedy without seeing the complete HJT log. Can you possibly copy the log to floppy and then post it from the other computer?

What's the Windows OS?
eg. Is it Windows 2000 sp4? Or is it WinXP Pro sp2?

What version of HijackThis is it? v1.99.1 is the latest version.
Is HijackThis.exe running from a permanent folder, and not from within a zip file in a Temp folder?
This is important. Make sure HijackThis.exe is installed in eg.
C:\Program Files\HijackThis
Re: your questions at the end of your post:
Don't worry about WINNT / winnt and System32 / system32
They are both exactly the same (whether smallcase or uppercase or a mixture).
svchost.exe is legitimate and is an integral part of Windows NT/2k/XP (Services Host).
It is normal to have multiple instances of it running.

Yesterday my vbulletin forum started only showing a white screen. http://www.348-409.com/forum/index.php? It happens with ALL pages of the forum including the admin area.

I've been in contact with my webhost and vbulletin and it's been back and forth, neither actually getting me the help I need.

Can anyone tell me what is causing this?

So far I've reuploaded a fresh copy of all vbulletin files making sure it was done in ASCII format. It is the lastest 4.1.3 version. Folder permissions are set to 755 and all php files to 644.

Prior to this I've been having page errors and believe there was malware as my users with Norton reported warnings to me. I was working with vbulletin to help resolve those problems when everything just stopped last night. Forum worked, came back a little later and only the white screen. It's been 24 hours and nothing I try will fix it.

During a two hour period using my laptop, blank white pages appeared, seemingly at random times. There was nothing on the screen apart from the cursor pointer except for a "greyed out" slider bar on the right margin.

There were no options available, except for "right clicking" which did not give an option to exit. The only option appeared to be to switch off the machine.(I realise now that I could possibly have used the task manager)

After a few futile attempts to discover what the problem was and a solution, I called my retailer's technical guys, who tried various things, including testing the hardware. They concluded that the blank page was a pop-up window, initiated by a virus or spyware. I have NOD32 and Spywareblaster installed and neither indicated a problem. I ran a full system scan and again, no threats were found.

Finally the technical guys recommended that I reset my PC to factory setting, by reloading all my original software.
As it is a new PC, only a few days old, this was no big problem.

I'm on Vista Home Premium.

After returning to factory settings and reinstalling everything, all seems well.

Does anyone agree that it was caused by a virus or spyware and if so why was it not detected?

Any comments will be appreciated.

I am running Vista Home Premium SP1. Several times a day, for no reason, the screen goes completely white with exception to the task bar. When this happens, the Internet icon appears on the task bar. The only way I know how to cancel this is to click on the icon, then Close OR press Alt+F4 to close the current screen. This is very annoying as it happens regularly. It also happens sometimes after bootup and everything has settled down. Without touching the keyboard or mouse the screen will go white.

My Windows XP machine has just given me a blank white screen!! It happened while browsing the net and I can do nothing now. The screen is totally blank and there is no response to any keystroke or mouse click. I switch off and restart: the Windows Welcome screen appears, in blue as it should, plus the fanfare; then instead of booting properly, it waits a bit then all goes white again. The hourglass is flicking on and off showing that some booting-up is perhaps going on but I cannot even get a response from Ctrl-Alt-Del. There is no Start button or way of accessing anything!

When I press the button to switch off, my desktop briefly appears (in full colour, just as it should be) followed by the message that I'm logging off and Windows is shutting down. So it doesn't look to me that the machine is totally dead, just diverted to this blank white screen. Unfortunately, after a virus infection some time back, this machine will not start in safe mode (I just get a list of partitions and drivers) so I am really stuck. Can anyone please help me here? It really is urgent.

My laptop screen goes completely white. It used to be less frequent before and would start working when I restarted the laptop. However its happening more often in the last two days. It does not go back to normal even when I restart it. The screen is totally white (no icon or windows). When i restart i see the DELL screen for a split nano second and then the screen goes white. I think the laptop is still functioning but its just the screen that goes blank. I say this because I was videochatting the other day when the screen turned white. I could still hear the voice and continue the chat. Also the numlock and capslock seem to be working. I am just worried cos its happening more often now and I think one day it will totally shut off and I will lose all my files. I had to restart my laptop atleast 5-6 times while following the 'spyware 1st steps'.

I don't think I have a Windows Install disc, or a Boot CD.

I have asked for help in techsupport forum before and also regularly follow all the steps you have suggested to keep my computer safe from virus but dont know why this is happening. So please help me. TIA

I saw this issue in the forum. And I'm having the same problem as the original poster. If anyone has a solution, I'd certainly appreciate the guidance. This laptop (Compaq CQ-60) is about 6 months old. Because it was so cheap, I didn't bother buying the warranty. It got dropped, so naturally we had to replace the LCD screen. It worked perfectly after that for about 2 weeks. Now when you turn it on, it's just a solid white, blank screen. If we connect an external monitor, we can use it. But otherwise, we're kinda screwed. Using my troubleshooting skills here, if it has a display (externally) then the motherboard and video card would apparently be functioning as expected. One other thing, I can adjust the brightness using the function key and the corresponding f key. Did this new LCD screen just go bad?

Help.

Thanks,

Randy.

I can press CTRL-ALT-DEL, and i can log off and shut down, but I can not use task manager, and it gives me an error message saying something like 'it can not run' or something. I DESPERATELY need help on how to fix this. is it to do with my Ubuntu? I hope someone can help me quickly, i really need it.

Many thanks,
Sammy Boiii

When I go to this forum, a blank white screen appears. It started happening just today and is just with this one site. I can acess the log in page ONLY IF I click 'Cache' at the bottom of google. But when I type in my password and username, the same blank white screen comes up.

I'll also add that yesterday, and earlier this morning, this specifica website began running pretty slow for me. And now, I can't get to it at all because of the blank screen.

I made a screencap. Does anyone know what it could be?

I am running windows XP,mostly use google chrome.I run ESSET,Malwarebytes and CC cleaner often........My problem is when viewing multiple windows,1or many,when going back to any of the windows I was not viewing the screen is white except for the addres bar.It will take up to a minute for the sites screen to reapear and if I try to reload the page it will eventually but it is better if I close the window and start from scratch.I constantly get the error message that my shockwave app has crashed and to reload but I am not even sure if I have shockwave as if I try to reload it nothing happens...If you need further info just ask...

A quick-fix might be to simply reinstall Shockwave.

Login as the Administrator and then download and install Shockwave from Adobe at the URL below. If you do not want the Google Toolbar then remember to untick the GT box before installing.

Shockwave should be updated at least once a month.

My Windows XP machine has just given me a blank white screen!! It happened while browsing the net and I can do nothing now. The screen is totally blank and there is no response to any keystroke or mouse click. I switch off and restart: the Windows Welcome screen appears plus the fanfare; then instead of booting properly, it waits a bit then all goes white again. The hourglass is flicking on and off showing that some booting-up is perhaps going on but I cannot even get a response from Ctrl-Alt-Del.

When I press the button to switch off, my desktop briefly appears (in full colour, just as it should be) followed by the message that I'm logging off and Windows is shutting down, i.e. it doesn't seem as though the machine is totally dead, just diverted to this blank white screen. Unfortunately, after a virus infection some time back, this machine will not start in safe mode so I am really stuck. Can anyone please help me here? It really is vital.
 

A:Solved: Just got a blank white screen !

Well thanks folks - another nil response, not the first time either. My problems must be a bit naff so I will not be posting here again.
In the off chance that anyone is remotely interested, my blank white screen problem has healed itself. After a day's worth of switching on and switching off again, I suddenly got a message that a program was failing to respond and did I want to close it now? It was a Real Player update, never requested or agreed to, that was not responding and when I closed it, bingo, I had control of my machine again and it proceeded to give me my desktop and everything.
Just so as you know. I won't trouble you again. Adios.

I did a system scan with Spybot Search and Destroy along with Hijackthis. The computer was working just fine until start up. When everything loads a white blank screen randomly pops up and disappears. The computer is running just fine but it's bugging me what the white screen is cause it never happened before. I restarted the computer a few times to see if I can crash the white screen which I did. It gave me a CPAX20 error. I did some research on it and it says that I must of downloaded an adware which I don't think can be possible because I've been dealing with virus, maware, and adware for years and I can't find anything I've recently downloaded that would have any viruses because I download programs from a friend that's very reliable.

Anyone have any idea on what this is?

(Note: If this is in the wrong section then I apologize before hand)

And let me know the results.

seems like one to MOVE to the hardware forum, likely a Monitor issue. But it won't hurt for you to run these tools free from links below... adaware/spybot/spyware blaster, in the meantime while you wait for further analysis in this forum.

My computer a Dell Vostro 1510 is fairly new however I keep getting a random blank white page to pop up, this happens when I am connected to the internet and when I am not. If it does happen when I already have an internet explorer page open then I can go to the tab on the taskbar and right click and close, but if i dont have a ie window open then my whole screen goes white and the only way to get rid of it is to open the task manager and close it there. I have run mcaffee virus scan, avg virus scan, spybot and windows defender with no problems found. The problem doesnt seem to be causing anyother problems other than annoying the dickins out of me.
