A few weeks ago, I my computer screen started turning white, specifically while I was playing games. THe screen would last for only a few moments, and I was then able to resume what I was doing before. Lately, the white screen started to last longer and longer, until the point where I am at now, where my laptop's screen is permanently white.

I've plugged it into an external monitor, and I'm able to do use it as if it was my normal computer
I've tried reconnecting the video chord to the screen itself, that didn't work

The laptop is a Pavilion g4-1016dx and I am using Windows 7

Thanks in advance

The White screen problem you are seeing is possibly dueto a dying controller located on the LED screen its self Since you havereseated the video cable and made sure the connections are secure and thelaptop is still exhibiting the problem it leads me to believe the display itsself has suffered a failure at this point I would recommend a replacementscreen.

I know I haven't responded in a while, and I would like to thank anyone who responded, but while I was trying to fix my laptop, I hit the escape key a couple of times and next thing I know the screen was back to normal
I was wondering if anyone knew why this happened, and if there is a way to prevent this from happening again.
