I have been having this problem for a couple of weeks. While working on my computer my screen will just turn white and freeze up. To fix I just hit the power button on my monitor and turn it back on and then it happens again 3-4 times.

My first piece of advice for these sorts of occurrences is to go to your computer manufacturer's website and check for driver updates.  It's interesting how many problems old drivers are causing with the introduction of Windows 10 and the fact that they're generally sporadic/erratic in nature.

It says that Dell Optiflex 750 will not be updating drivers for Windows 10 :( It has been more then 30 days since I upgraded to Windows 10 and it says if I revert back to the old version the file automatically deleted. Am I out of luck?

If the only thing you need to do is power cycle the monitor, not reboot the computer or anything else, the fault is in the monitor. To prove absolutely you could use the monitor on a different computer, or borrow another monitor for a while to use on your computer.

 

If it is confirmed that it's a monitor fault, the commonest cause of a complete white screen is a supply voltage failure inside the LCD panel. It can be something like just a cracked solder joint, but the board where it happens is not always accessible and you'd need a technician to locate and repair the problem if it is possible to reach on the LCD in your monitor.
