Solved White Screen Dell Studio 1745

April 9, 2013 at 07:35:42
Specs: Windows XP
When I boot up I see the Dell screen telling me Windows is starting...then I get a green screen for a couple seconds, then a white screen. Meanwhile the system appears to be working (the little circle is turning and the "startup notes" play). Tried hooking up another monitor and that shows the same. Any ideas greatly appreciated!!!!

This could be a bad graphics driver or it could be a bad GPU. Try safe mode and if that works then uninstall and re-install the graphics driver. If it doesn't work, then try to start in VGA Mode.

Let us know.

✔ Best Answer
Ended up being a virus, had to have the computer stripped and reset to factory settings (virus scrubber did not work multiple times). Fortunately had backed up to an aux drive and the virus had not gotten into that.
