Screen goes completely white. Sometimes happens at startup (can hear the startup music in the background) and other times after being used for a while. Using windows 98 on laptop. Not sure if this would be a hardware or software concern. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks

Try to find a way to make it turn white, then try to do the same thing in safe mode.
Or just boot to safe mode, tap F8 while the laptop turns on, run something like a search, see if it will turn white.
If it turns white in safe mode you have a Hardware problem, if it doesn't software becaomes more plausible.

I believe it is a hardware problem, the dell laptop has screws on bottom which I loosen then tighten with computer shut down and when reboot most times the white screen disappears and I can go for days with no concern. It is happening more frequently now. Any ideas where to start looking??
