Hey I have a quick question. I have a friends laptop they wanted fixed. Within 2 minutes after turning it on and it is loading the screen goes white. If you turn it off and back on it goes white immediately. If it sits for a while it can turn on and last about 2-3 minutes before going white. It never gets a chance to go to the sign in screen. In your opinion do you think the issue is the screen or is it a hard drive problem. I was able to get to the setup screen to see how long it stayed there and I was in setup for while. As soon as I exited the setup and it went to load after about 1.5 minutes it went white again. Can anyone help?

Try using an external monitor to see the difference. The ribbon cable might need to be refit/replaced or most likely the screen itself.

I tried to hook it up to a monitor but it would not work on the monitor. However since I tried that a few hours ago it has turned white since. I noticed that it would flicker for a while likes its about to go white but it stabilized. Any advice?
