White light on monitor when it is turned on. nothing else

\015 When I turn on the machine it boots up but i can't see anything but a white light on the monitor. I know it boots up because i can hear the sound which indicates this and I can use the keyboard to turn it off.\015

Answers :

You could have a faulty LCD screen or a faulty video card.
\015\012To determine which fault you have, connect an external monitor to the video port on the laptop, power up the monitor first then bootup the laptop. The video will automatically switch to the monitor.
\015\012If you do not get a Windows image on the monitor then you have a faulty video card and this is a motherboard problem.
\015\012If you get a normal Windows image then the video card is OK and the fault is in the LCD or the video cable/connector.
\015\012First try reseating the video cable/connector which connects the LCD screen to the motherboard.
\015\012If the doesn't solve your problem the the fault is most likely the LCD screen.
