Hi all
I have a Presario C500, Windows XP Home, 1GB RAM.
I was givin this laptop because the screen is white and glows.
I figured it was the screen broke so I bought another C500, to swap the screen out. I hooked up the 2nd screen and I still get a white glow. I hear the Windows system boot up but all I get is the glow.
Do you think my motherboard is bad ? How do I test it ?
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated !

You should have tested it first with an External monitor.

Yep, external monitor works so I guess the motherboard is bad. Thanks for your help !

Just a minute :)...if the external monitor works with the system...the motherboard is not bad. The screen or some major necessary part which enables the screen to function properly...may be bad, but not the board.

The external monitor works great. I don't know how to test anything else. Any suggestions ?

I've tried 2 screens and I get the same results. Thats the whole screen and internal parts inside the screen.

Unfortunately...I am not technically proficient/qualified to state anything other than the obvious...and I don't know anything about laptops and all that can go wrong with them.

But the membership has many members who are better able to comment/suggest and I advise awaiting further inputs from some of them.
