White Screen

Postby glompos21 » Sun Aug 17, 2008 7:52 pm

I have a strange problem with my amilo 1510.
When i boot the pc the screen is OK but after 20-30 sec the screen goes white.
I also connect a external CRT sceen and when the main screen goes white i lost the
signal to the external.
I think that is the graphic card.

Does it happen when or short before the Windows-desktop should show up?
What happens if you start Windows in safe mode?

Windows covers a window with a white veil when it doesn't respond.

maybe your ATI driver wasn't correctly installed. Have you reinstalled it once or used your recovery disk?

(reinstalling deletes files, recovering with cd doesn't)

When i went to check hikaru suggestions,the screen was white from the boot. I reboot 10 times the pc with or without battery but still white screen.
Then i open the pc and i remove the bios buttery for one minute and the miracle happen.

If this happens again you don't have to remove the CMOS-battery. Just remove power pack and main battery and press the power button for about 15 seconds.
This procedure is called "hardware reset" and should have the same effect.

Until then keep an eye on your temperatures.

Does this mean that the hardware reset didn't help but removing the CMOS-battery did?

The bios reset did not work, i removed the the panel at the back and took out the cmos battery and replaced after about a 1minute or so. I booted up and set
my bios time and date and my boot priority etc. now the laptop works fine. However if dont set bios after removing the cmos and continue to windows start up
the white screen issue will remain, u must set ur bios to slove this problem. Thanks to this forum and its member to solving this issue.


regards
