Screen Freezes and turns white or white with stripes

Q: Screen Freezes and turns white or white with stripes

Computer covers whole screen with either white, or white with black, and blue stripes. Multiple times a day.?
This computer was bought in 2005, (HP Media Center PC). Within the second week this freezing(it freezes, and the screen has a white or white with black and blue stipes) occured( yes second week, my brother was uninformed and thought it was normal and didnt return it. It happened often enough as to save anything you were working on every ten to twenty minutes on a bad day. It settled and slowly became less of a problem, then stoped. One day he got a virus and had to restore the computer, the freezing started up again. same as last time, it settled then stoped, a month later, i recieved this computer as a hand me down, as my brother went to college and got a MAC. That was in mid summer of 2008, a week and a half ago, i got a huge virus, i restored my computer, and the freezing started up again, after not doing it once for over a year. It has gotten as bad as freezing every 30 minutes some nights. And earlier today it froze, i turned off and on my computer, went down stairs, and when i came back it was frozen again. I had not even used and program. Please help if you have any idea whats wrong!
Things to keep in mind...
-It only happened after the computer was restored, or bought(ish)
-Its not a normal freeze where you see the programs on the screen still, the screen goes completely white, or white with black and blue stripes.

Preferred Solution: Screen Freezes and turns white or white with stripes

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.)

Then maybe it isn't freezing at all. Maybe there's a problem with your monitor, vga cable, or video card.

Try a different monitor/cable and see if that changes anything. If it doesn't, then try reseating the video card--if any--and if that doesn't work I suggest getting a cheap one from someone's old pc at least to test with.

Installing a new video card can be complicated, but google search for a guide or follow the setup instructions for the video card to the letter and you'll have no problems.

I everyone,

Last night my pc was working just fine, but this morning when I wanted to start him up I could smell a light burn. When I started the pc up(after checking that everything was fine inside), the screen came up white with colorfull stripes and then changed to a black screen with color stripes. Its the first time this has happened and I'm not sure if its the videochip or what. I've build the pc myself and had no problems for 2 years. The specs ar below:

Asus Crosshair Mobo
AMD Daul-Core 6000 Chip
4x1G OCZ PC2 6400 memory
Kandalf case with build in watercooling
Samsung 26" T260 monitor (please dont say its the monitor!)

I also considered the mobo, but I dont have the knowledge you guys have so I'll leave it in your capable brains.

Thanks for reading.

A:Black screen with colorfull stripes and then white screen with stripes?

I have the same problem, it was my video card. Try taking out the video card and putting it in a buddies system, then try putting theirs in your system. First make sure they are compatible though. That's the easy way to either say it is the video card or isn't.

Hey, im pretty new to this forum and i need some help. Well recently, my computer has some strange lines on the left side of the screen, and a large black dot near the bottom. I don't know what the problem is or how it happened, i tried restarting my laptop but its still there. I am using Windows 7, 64 bit on an Acer Aspire 4736ZG. The stripes also get in the way of the start button. I would post a screenie, but it's on the monitor itself and print screen doesnt capture it.

A:[HELP] White Stripes On Screen [HELP]

My guess is you need a new monitor. It could be a motherboard problem though too.

Try replacing the monitor, or if you have a PC you can connect to, try connecting the laptop to the PC and switching your display to the PC monitor. If the lines appear on the PC monitor, your problem will be motherboard related.

A:Laptop crashed with white screen and blue stripes

Hi explosm357 and Welcome to TSF,

How far the boot process do you get? I'm just curious as to if you see anything at all in the beginning, the black/white text?

As my first thought it's a hardware issue, so i'll move it over to the hardware part, so we can still use this thread.

You could try another monitor, and try tilting the screen up/down to see if it reacts in any way. Does the PC turn hot if you have it on for a while?

It's either a GPU or PSU fault i'd suspect.

I didn't really know where to post this. I'm new to this forum and I got a problem with my very old and bad PC.

Specs: (don't laugh)
Motherboard: Leonite-GL8E / ASUS P5LP-LE / leonite 5.00
CPU: Intel Pentium D 915 2.8GHz
GRAPHIC CARD: Idk how to check this without turning the pc as it doesn't load the windows?

Whenever I turn my PC white stripes appear on the screen while booting and loading windows then they change to blue. I had Windows 7 Ultimete x64 and a blue screen appeared all the time while loading the system and said something about graphic card. I then done a format to Windows XP as it didn't even let me instal new any Windows 7 system and the XP worked fine but the stripe were still there although only while booting.

There's few pictures how it looks. Please help.

A:White stripes on the screen while booting then blue screen.

Either power supply can't deliver enough power for graphics card or graphics card is dying but this white stripes indicate that it's probably second one.

Well you can check graphics card model by looking at it-you may recognize it;or there is a sticker on the graphics card from which you could read it's model.

Try to start in BIOS and leave the Screen on, see if it shows the same problem?
You could also start up in safe mode and wait till it shows tha problem or not.
In the first option no Windows is active and therefor no software related error can occur.
In the second most applications are out of order. you could also after start and exeute MSCONFIG command unselect all unnecessary startups and restart.
It could be your videocard or driver or your screen.

My HP Pavilion G4 laptop screen is white when I turn it on. When connected to an external monitor, it works fine. Any suggestions for the cause and a solution?

View Solution.

A:Laptop Screen Turns White

If the external monitor is fine, then you know the problem is from the mother board cable connection to the screen itself.  The problem point for notebooks is where the cable goes through the hinge.  You could try to wiggle that to see if the picture changes. The other possibility is that the connection from the cable to the screen has come loose and the final solution I can think of is that the screen itself is bad.

A few years ago, I purchased an HP 2311x monitor from a friend. About a month ago, my screen went completely white and after some troubleshooting I determined that the problem was the monitor and not the video card. I was about to put the monitor in the garage, but with three kids my budget is tight, and replacing it would put a strain on things, so I went to HP's site and read about some folks who suggested turning the monitor upside down and tapping on the top would fix it.
Surprisingly, this worked! So after about a week, when it happened again, I turned the monitor upside down a few times and my screen returned. This week when it happened, usually when the computer is unattended (maybe gone to sleep) I merely had to tilt the screen forward and the picture would come back.
Also, I noticed that the power adapter looks broken, like it is coming apart, as if my four year old child has stepped on it. I am sure that it should be replaced, and this is pretty doable for me.
One person suggested that something inside the monitor is loose and turning it upside down restores it; albeit temporarily. Should I start to save for another monitor because eventually this solution may not work anymore? Or is it possible that the problem is being caused by the adaptor that is breaking apart and I might just have to replace the power adaptor?
Thanks in advance, any insight into this issue would be appreciated.

I have Windows Vista SP1, Home premium, 32 bit on my laptop and lately it has been doing a very strange thing. All of a sudden my screen goes completely white, and the only way to get rid of it is to hit the "show desktop" button on my keyboard, then right click the button that has appeared on my taskbar that says "blank page-Internet Explorer", and click "close" from the menu. Why is it doing this? Can anybody help me?

I was talking with people on bleepingcomputer.com about this but we never found an answer. I have ran several recommended scans, and one scan found a trojan and deleted it, however, the blank page is still happening, and with even more frequency than before.

Oh, I also tried updating my video driver (at their instruction) and I'm not positive that I did this correctly, as nothing on the list was actually called a "video" driver, and I'm not completely literate with computers..lol, so I updated something like..NVDIA...or something like that.
Thank you, Karen

you would need to re-install windows and also the chipset drivers for the new motherboard - unless its identical to the old motherboard ?

is it an identical replacement ?

and the same for the new motherboard

Hi guys

I am having a problem deducing the issue with a friend's laptop.

It's a Toshiba Equium U400, not sure the rest of the specs are relevant.

Basically the screen ONLY works if it is angled all the way back. And it works 100% perfectly fine in this position. However, if you try to angle the screen down (in a closing direction), the screen will immediately turn white. You can then tilt the screen backwards again and press FN+F5 (shortcut for alternate display) and it will flash back to life again.

I assume that it is a cable connection issue? And would rule out faulty LCD/inverter if it works at one angle?

I have tried researching this and have only found issues where the screen turns black, not white.

I don't have my screwdrivers with me and cannot open the screen yet to check connections. I am just curious if anyone knows if this behaviour is linked to motherboard, etc.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Hi there,  My Lenovo Yoga 710 IKB 15'' Laptop has had many problems. The fan was making noise and I started a topic here that was ridiculously marked solved when it wasn't, and now I have this new problem. For some reason, my screen has been blinking white (see attached pictures). Sometimes the white screen is blinking, sometimes it stays for a few seconds and other times it's not there at all but is clearly still an issue. I have already updated both the Intel and NVIDIA display drivers and when I run a scan I'm told there are no updates available. When I run a game or anything that requires the computer to switch to using the NVIDIA card, there is also a buzzing sound coming from the side of the computer, although this is not present when the Intel card is being used (the white screen appears no matter what I'm doing or which graphics card is being used).  I like this laptop but these are really too many problems. I bought this as a replacement for another laptop as I'm a student who really urgently needs to use a computer. Is lenovo going to fix this??

A:Lenovo Yoga 710 Screen turns white

I didn't see or respond to your first thread, but the temperatures (42C idle and 65C gaming) see normal.  85C or 90C is a high temperature under load but not temperatures in the 60's.  (Most CPUs, desktop or laptop, have thermal shutdown when a CPU hits about 105C.)  The thread said to contact support and gave you a support document to reference for fan noise.  Your fans would be running when your temperatures are in the 60's, but not at high speed.  Did you do that?  I didn't mark it solved, but if I read the questions and the response, I would have thought the issue was solved, although someone should have said that 65 was OK.  If you had posted back and support couldn't find the support document, that would have meant that it wasn't solved.
Regarding the white screen,  you are going to need to contact support for warranty repair.

I am using a Compaq Presario V2000 since 2006.
Win XP Home, AMD Sempron 3000+, ATI Radeon Xpress 200M, 1Gb Ram.

Since the last couple months, once in a few weeks, while I am using my computer, my screen turns to what is depicted in the Image file attached here. Earlier it would fix itself in about a minute or two. Or I'd have to move or twist the screen a bit. But recently, the only fix that works is a restart. I can not see anything on the screen and thus use a keyboard shortcut for restart.

From what I have read around, its probably the Inverter (or whatever is the chip behind the screen frame where it says "Compaq") that is troubled and replacing it would fix it. But before I take it to HP and get myself ripped off, I could use some advice.

Thanks a ton and ask if there's any more info that is required.

PS: The picture does not reflect the rainbow colors because the colors are due to the background. During me clicking the picture, there was nothing running I guess.

A:Laptop Screen turns White / Rainbow

Since no one has any info here, I'll post what I learn. Might help others.

Since the backlight is working fine, it is not and Inverter or a Backlight Issue.
And I can hook it to a external monitor (when my screen is knocked out) and it works fine. Thus motherboard and video card are fine as well.

That leaves us with the LCD wiring / cable and the Panel in itself.
I have decided to wait for a few days before I take it to a tech because I do not move the panel at all and it seems to be stable for now.

Will update.

With my old mx440 card everything was showing perfectly on TV but now with my new pc and NVIDIA 8600gt card when I connect to TV I have these problems:

1. White, bright horizontal stripes from text, folder corners and other places also in games!!!
2. Lightening changes every few second from bright to dark and then again from dark to bright, but only when I move my mouse or work with pc!
3. Every few minutes picture becomes black and white for a second, also in games!!

The 8600gt has 9pin out connection to that I connect component cable with 4 pin out on the other end and then to that 4pin out I connect s-video to scart cable!

I have no idea what these bright stripes are called so I cant find anything in Google! Only thing that reduces a little bit these stripes is if I set flickering to max, but then picture is to blurry!!

Look in to picture at folder corner to see what I&#8217;m talking about!

I'm started having a weird problem that I don't even know what caused it. I was using my PC and it fine, no problem then a friend came over and I left my PC for about an hour. When I came back I noticed that my screen was turned grey and PC was not responding so I reset the PC manually. After bootup, it went fine but then again after 5 mins my screen turned white and it stopped responding, and that's how it behaves whenver I try to bootup now. Sometimes it asks for Username/Password and then after 2-3 mins it goes white or sometimes it doesn't even present me with the Login screen. It works fine in the Safe Mode. Another weird thing that I found is the problem perishes when I remove the Nvidia driver in the little time that I get between the 2-3 mins before the screen goes white and if it succeeds in removing the driver and asks me to reboot, now here's the catch. If I remove the driver and don't reboot, the system works perfectly, no matter how long I use it. Hell I upgrade it to 1607 through that. But if I reboot after the driver uninstall, I can see that driver has been removed because my resolution turns to 640x480 but after sometime it automatically gets the driver, almost instantly restoring the resolution and the same problem with white screen.

Right now, I'm writing it using the safe mode. Any idea how can I debug or solve this issue?

By the way, I'm running Windows 10 x64 and have Nvidia 970 with Intel i7 4770 (not K).

My Laptop screen had been working perfectly for months. Then out of the blue It started to get washed out white.
I do not know how long this has been happening or when it started but I just noticed it recently on a trip.
I use my Acer Laptop as a work PC so it's generally plugged into a Monitor. I was traveling & I brought it
with me. I turned it on & all seemed normal. The 4 flying Win7 colors did there dance as the system started to boot up.
Then I'd see the "Login" screen for a second or 2 then Bam, the screen went white out of nowhere! I thought I was the
victim of some kind of "white-screen-of death". The Laptop is barely a year old. Then I noticed if I tilted the screen
all the way forward I could make out the Login screen icon & window. I typed my password & it continued to boot up.
Now my desktop was normal with all the colors correct. I figured it was a weird glitch, a 1 time thing. After about
20-30 second the screen when white again! Now there was no way to get it back to normal. I could see everything on my
desktop in the faded white washed out background. I ended up doing emails in that condition. it sucked.

-I've check & installed all latest Windows Updates.

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

My Hp pavilliin g7 series laptop running windows 7 home starts up with white screen and no beeps or sounds . Started freezing on Hp logo screen last week only sometimes. Id turn off and it would work on second try. About a year and a half ago I used laptop to preview windows 8. And after I reinstalled windows 7 it has been acting funny. Ie freezing and louder fan noise. I did recently update the bios and a pci device driver that never installed. But now it has white screen this morning. I shut off and powered up and still white.
I took off battery and pressed power for 10 sec plugged back in and still white. Still no noise.
Any ideas?

Hi all.

Last night I was watching a video on YouTube and also using Google Earth, when out of the blue, my screen changed to these white and light blue vertical stripes running down it, I'd say about an inch in width. These stripes took up the whole screen. The Caps Lock light did not turn on when I pressed Caps Lock, which meant my computer had crashed. Can anyone tell me why this happened?

I haven't had much luck with finding anyone else with the same problem

Welcome to TSF....

I would try first removing the video display drivers from device manager and then rebooting the computer to see if windows will re-install them.

Also downloading the drivers from the manufacturers web site for the video card might also be a good idea and try updating the drivers thru device manager.

Another thing is if you have another video card you might want to give installing that one to see if it fixes the problem...

When I try to go into windows Explore to copy or delete files Explore freezes but it does not crash and speed is incredibly slow. Many times Freezes but I can X out. Internet Explorer works but mainly Black and White background as ALL areas in the sites I visit I cannot see the color coded prompts. This just happened. I was using Microsoft Essentials but that even froze. Now I have Kapersky trial but that did not find any viruses or malware after scanning. Any suggestions please? Thanks - DennisM

Hi i don't know if this is the right place to post this but i need some advice about my computer. Whenever i use my computer after it hasn't been used for a while when i open it it gets a white line across the top of the screen. Then my screen freezes up and my screen goes funny. The only way i can get it to work again is to hook it up to an external monitor. When the screen finally clears up and i unplug the monitor it starts working good again. Do you have any ideas about why my computer would be doing this? Any help would be appreciated.

My computer is a Toshiba Satellite A665 laptop with x86/x64 and is running Windows 7 for operating system. It is my 1st windows 7 computer. The problem began several weeks ago when I was in Facebook playing Castle Age. Thew entire screen turned a milky white and it stayed frozen that way for a minute or so, but came back with no apparent change. Since I wasn't downloading anything, I wondered if I had gotten a Trojan or other virus from Facebook, as I had read about such things recently.
So immediately I began AVG, Ad-aware and Malwarebytes, leaving the computer running until evening. No viruses were found. I wanted to be sure, so I downloaded spy-bot from cnet.com (the only place i will download a program unless it is directly from the manufacturer.
Several days later, I became determined to win a particular battle and found that castle age's "washing machine" animation telling the site was working, could be stopped sometimes, speeding the action, by clicking more often. My computer responded like lightning! I was so pleased at my purchase!
As the days went on though, the white screen popped up more often and the "hold" or "freeze" action would extend a little, until it was like a minute long. I started to tell friends in chat and they said there was a virus that was downloading with "gifts" from the other players.
All of the sudden, I started to receive emails saying I had been sending out links to porn sit... Read more

While using my Gateway laptop it will frequently fade white and freeze. This problem is sporadic at times and constant other times. I cannot figure out a pattern to the problem. I am unclear whether this is a software or harware problem. All I really know is that it is really annoying. I am wondering if anyone out there could help me diagnose this problem. Sometimes, faded white lines appear on the screen and become more intense, depending on the amount of time it is frozen. The problem can last anywhere from a second to almost a minute. When it fades you can still see the the monitor picture kind of, but like I said it is blurred. Someone please help!

A little something before I begin, I have an old Acer laptop, Windows XP and the screen is all ******, so I use a monitor to view the screen.

And this afternoon I was using my laptop and all was fine until there was a short circuit, all the appliances in the house was shut down.

3 hours later when I turned on my laptop the screen started acting up. One particular problem is my cursor, it had black and white stripes, and I never heard this happened before. Next is my screen which freezes very frequently and then it goes black and goes back to normal. This is getting annoying and I have no idea what is wrong. I did a system restore to yesterday's date and to no avail, nothing was changed. Freezing screen, blinking screen and black and white cursor.

Please help? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi. And thanks for reading this post.
Description: Windows 7 Starter (netbook) loads , desktop is visible for about 30 seconds, then is taken over by a white screen with a submit box on the right bottom portion of the screen. Other than a one-line warning that says "You have 30 seconds to connect to the internet," there are no other messages or directions. I suspect it is some type of flawed ransomware, with an intelligent, very well-hidden code.
From a USB, using command prompt, I've tried several dozen malware scanners including HitmanPro and MalwareBytes without success.
The computer was infected on 11/18/15 and the virus seems to have deleted any previous restore point(s).
The white screen virus locks up Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Networking. The white screen also launches when trying to use explorer.exe or opening up notepad to save a file to the desktop. Tried to use a new user account to bypass the virus, but the white screen locks up the new user account in the same way.
Safe Mode with Command Prompt works.
I am thankful to be here for some professional help and look forward to the learning experience.
I followed Bleeping Computer's directions and uploaded the relevant logs from a recently run Farbar scan.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
