    I have a HP Pavilion with a VS 17 flat screen monitor and for the past couple of months my screen has been suddenly going blank white or go white with blue pinstripes. When the white screen comes up I can't hear any sound or see anything that was on my screen that was on it beforehand. I have to manually turn my computer off and restart it and then after a few minutes or maybe a couple hours the screen will go white again. When I try turning the monitor off and on it doesnt help the problem either. For awhile I thought the problem might be in my operating system but after plugging in the monitor from my old computer and I didnt have any problems I realized it has to be my newer monitor. Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? Any info would help...

    My screen has been going weird lately, try making sure the VGA cable is tightened (loosely) with a screw driver.

    If it still persists and is still under warranty, then take it back.

    I tried tightening the VGA cable to no avail and my warranty has run out. Any other suggestions?

    Sounds like you know the answer if another monitor doesn't have the same issue, the monitor is the problem.
    Out of curiosity, is a Celeron cpu?

    To reply to both posts, my speakers are intergrated into my monitor and I am not sure if it is a Celebron cpu. How can i tell if it is a Celebron?

    Right click My Computer, choose properties...the screen that come up will tell you the processor.

    I looked it up and i have a AMD Athlon 64 Processor. What bearing might that have on my problems with my monitor?

    Well it doesn't but Celeron cpu's can do that as they start to burn is all, it was a shot.

    I think it's safe to say that your screen has died.
