Specs: xp sp2, 512

So my laptops screen just stopped working and all I get is a blank white screen anytime the computer is on. I hooked it up to an external monitor and it worked fine so I dont really know what that means. I didnt drop it or anything. I have heard about loose ribbon cables or something but would like some input before i go unscrewing everything. Thanks for your help

✔ Best Answer


Most likely it is just a bad connection between the LCD display and the system board. I would try to reseat the video connector on the back of the LCD screen first and check if it fixes the problem. After that I would try to reseat the video cable connector on the system board. I would also reseat cables if there is no video on the LCD screen at all.

OK, thanks will do. Are there any guides online for doing this or do I have to wing it?

Ok took the whole thing apart and reseated the cables in the back of the screen and where it connects to the board but still same result. White.
