Re: White Screen
Could be, but conceivably it could also be due to a problem with the inverter (the high voltage power supply for the lcd backlight) or the lcd panel itself. The inverter is immediately below the lcd panel, under the bezel which surrounds the panel. It could also be due to a loose connection between the video cable and the panel (which is only accessible by removing the covers of the lcd assembly).
My guess would be that the panel itself is the most likely culprit.
You can most likely find inexpensive replacements for both the panel and the inverter on eBay, and install them yourself if basic service instructions for the laptop are available at the manufacturer's website.
