    Greetings :rolleyes:

    I have a Compaq Presario 1685 notebook, and its TFT display has clouded up on me till its all white and nothing is visible on the desktop.

    An external monitor works fine on the system (which kinda eliminates the video card) but I beleive something might be up with the screen itself.

    The problem occurred previously, and I solved it when I noticed that applying delicate pressur to certain spots behind the screen, cause the display to return as normal..

    This doesn't work anymore though.

    Another thing is.. when the computer is off for a long time (about a day) it takes longer for the screen to get cloudy white. For example.. the system would boot normally, the red COMPAQ logo would appear, followed by the initialization screens, and the Windows 98 startup screen.. then the desktop would appear.. and a couple minutes after, it would turn white.. boom..

    If anyone has any ideas on this.. I"d love to hear 'em... THANX!

    It sounds like the laptop display is shot. Contact Compaq to see how much it will cost to replace it.

    Compaq also has a pretty good website.
