    I have a year old laptop and all of a sudden out of nowhere the LCD monitor goes white. I replaced the invertor in the the screen and it was fix for a little while but came back. I am desperate in finding a way to fix this. But, I can tell you that, my laptop is on right now and the screen is white, but I have another screen externally hooked up so I can use the thing. Please tell me this can be solved. I have done hours of research and nowhere have a found someone who has fixed this problem pernamently.. please help!!

    I've split you off from the other post. I don't what what it good be, if I was guessing I'd say its a bad connection between the laptop and the screen

    Or, the LCD controller may have simply failed, hard to know. It's almost certain to be a hardware issue. Does it change when you slowly change the angle of the screen? If there's a place during the open/close cycle where you get a picture, even momentarily, it's probably the cable between the MB and the screen, which can be replaced.

    I'm Having The Exact Same Problem, the Laptop works perfectly fine on an external monitor. I tried disconnecting the cord and putting it back in but no luck. I am using a Dell Inspiron 5100 so i tried FN+F8 But no luck, Any Help Would Be Appreciated.
    It Started After A Bus Ride, The Screen isn't cracked or anything. :)
