Title: Laptop white screen
Post by: sony mavica on February 08, 2018, 04:01:02 am
i had posted on facebook wanted old or any computers people don't want

got a huge bunch of laptops and some desktops from one guy who used to repair them

was able to fix up the desktop pc fine all where core 2 duo but one will make a really nice older gaming pc even has a dvb-t capture card in it so i might use it to record tv also

most laptops where completely broken good for only the ram and cpu have like 29 ram stick ddr2/ddr3 did get a nice working dell mini 910 with power adapter and a nice amd laptop with decent video just needed new hdd :) and and a nice i5 laptop need hdd and keyboard was removed from it so need to get one for it

but one of them i have this problem

my laptop boot into bios fine but if i have windows 7 dvd in the computer as soon as the dell logo screen where it says press f2 to boot into bios i get a white screen and nothing happens i checked the hdd on the computer with my desktop pc and it works fine no bad sectors or anything i did try another hdd in the laptop with windows 10 installed on it then it starts booting has the windows logo and circle spinning around showing its loading then after a couple of seconds i just get the white screen


what can i try to get it working as its a really nice laptop
