My Laptop Screen Keeps Going White!!
Hello,

I have a compaq presario laptop, about 2 or 3 yrs old. My screen keeps going completely white w/ small lines shooting across the screen where you can see the regular screen. Whats weird about it is..I don't have to reboot or anything like that..depending on how wide I open up my laptop...it stops. Not that I try to use my laptop w/ it half closed or anything..lol But even when its at a 90 degree angle it goes white and it won't stop until I open it up some more and then it goes away. This has started happening a lot more often now then it used to. Can someone tell me why its doing this?

Sounds like the interface cable between the LCD panel in the lid and the motherboard has an broken conductor or two in the area where it passes through the hinge. It only makes cood contact through the break at certain angles of the lid. Depending on the purpose of the voltage or data signal passing through it, it could cause different symptoms such as the ones you mentioned.

EDIT: Forgetting my manners here. Hi mommamea, and welcome to TSG.
