My computer screen is just turning white on startup?

So I am currently having a problem with a computer screen I have. Whenever I turn the computer on and then turn on my screen, the screen just turns white and like blank. I don't know what to do, so I just try to turn off the screen and then turn it on a few minutes later. But that never works! I can't even use the screen. It's always white, no matter what. Does it have to do with the graphics card or something? Can anyone please help me with my problem? Thanks.

Same thing has happened with my computer screen. While I was using it, suddenly it would just turn white. So I told my parents, and my dad brought it to a computer guy to fix. The guy said it had to do with the board that is inside your computer (directly under your keyboard). They have to replace the board inside with a new one. What caused this to happen is that on the side of your computer there is something that is breathing out air and you might have just laid it down on a couch/bed and it suffocates because you are covering the holes that are trying to breathe. This causes the board inside to melt. Hope this helped you xxxx

Ok, obviously you know nothing about electronics and most likely got scammed. First of all, the board does not melt. At worst, it will get a cold solder joint. The computer guy was right; is does have something to do with the board, but it depends if its a desktop or laptop, if its a laptop it is most likley cracked or it has a broken/dissconnected lvds cable or it has a cold solder joint under the gpu. If its a desktop it probably has bad capacitors.

For me, it was bad capacitors and now it works fine.

by

Hi Gigabit878, how do you fix bad capacitors? Is it likely to be the motherboard or graphics card? As a non-techie but with some tech knowledge, I wouldn't know how to go about this without changing the board/card.

Thanks

How much did this cost?

by

I'm reading online that you may be able to remedy this by removing the battery and pressing the power button do discharge the laptop. Then, turn it on again to see if that fixed the problem.

Do you have a display or a monitor? If it's a monitor, try plugging it into a computer and turning them both on. You might consider telling us what you have.

um,its a a viewsonic moniter,i've used it for some time and a dell tower.

First unplug both. Reseat the video card and tighten the cable connections to both the card and the monitor. Now plug both back in and restart each.

by

where can i find my video card?

by

It will be in a PCI slot inside the unit. It's the thing the monitor cable is attached to.

huh?im confused,not really understanding

try starting in safe mode with command prompt( hit f8 upon booting up) type explorer in the command prompt and use system restore to the closest point (system restore cannot be undone in safe mode.)then either download a reliable malware disinfecting programme or run the one on your system as I think the white screen is a nasty Trojan that needs to be removed.

Hey, I got the same problem it's not your dell tower but it's the screen....

cause I took off my cable and connected my Cpu to another screen and it worked, I even tried it on my TV through VGA Cable.... and it works.

The Solution:

Turn on your computer

Turn on the Monitor, if it is white(Blank) then press the power button to turn it off and turn it on instanly.

The Screen will continue to be white, then again turn off the monitor and unplug it.(NOTE: Unplug only the Monitor) Now after one minute plug it and turn it on.

It will work...cause I just did it so that I could google search the problem and I fell on this forum....

Well mine it worked,although I had to press it a thousand times to get the screen back to normal,such a total hassle but it works,maybe 1 out of 50 consecutive offs and ons will get it back to normal..............for now..and the symptoms gets back again and the cycle goes on....

by

Mine is having the same issue. Hooked up to my pc and it works fine, which means the monitor went bad.

by

I had the same issue and after several restarting the laptop by using the power button as well as pressing F8 ,the screen first turned black and gradually it started to show different colours in line then it beguns to show me the screen,by now i saw the system performing startup repair but still the screen was sometime white and sometime black... and me waiting and watching , May God help me .. u know i love my laptop so much and this situation is like giving it a mouth to mouth breathing first aid....

Step1- Disconnect monitor with computer. Simply switch on only monitor. If u don't see "no signal" clearly without white display, then I'm sure its monitor trouble. Buy new or repair it.

Step2- if u see no signal message clearly then problem is with your graphic card.

My problem with my monitor is it turns white after a few moment?

by

I had a bad video flicker, the screen went crazy. Then it went white and even if the HDMI cable was disconnected! It is the bad monitor that got smoked by a bad video card!!

by

could be a lose connection going from the lcd panel to one of the boards inside the monitor. corrosion can also cause it along with a bad capacitor

by

* Wait so rajish I connected my monitor blue cable for display and all I saw was a white screen nothing else but I could hear the windows startup sound but when I disconnected the blue cable for display my monitor just went fully black for my monitor which is Acer blue light means it's on and Yellow means it's off I think when I unplugged the blue cable the light went yellow and my screen went black with no message just full black like I never turned it on does this mean it's a problem with my graphics card or monitor

The problem is most likely a capacitor inside your monitor, they burn out after a while, so you might be able to fix it by replacing the bad one. If you're lucky you can spot a bad one by checking if the top metal flat is bulging.

For reference you can look at this link, the second picture shows what I'm talking about: http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?a...

Whiteouts and blackouts can also be caused by other components, so replacing the capacitor may or may not fix the problem.

What is 'safe mode'?

it probably is caused by a damaged LCD, the best option for a case like this would be to get it replace or you can use a cable like HDMI or what works for you computer to project the screen display to another monitor, that is if you want to save time and money.

If you’re troubleshooting a PC monitor (not a laptop), then disconnect everything and plug your power cable into the wall and turn your monitor power button on. If the screen is white, the issue is with the monitor. If the screen displays that it’s not receiving a signal, then it’s a graphics card issue. If it’s white, then it’s likely blown capacitor/s.

Someone else posted it may be battery

To test first remove power cord then remove battery

press start if it tries to start up then it's most likely you need a new battery

I got one on eBay

My laptop is HP and the replacement number is written on the battery

All works fine now
