Is the screen just all white or does it have writing and something about active desktop on it?

If yes -> Click the 'Restore Active Desktop' button on the screen and then right click and click on 'refresh'.

You need to flash the latest bios on your computer....go to support.dell.com and click on the option drivers and downloads and type the Service tag of your computer and you need to download the latest bios and save it on the desktop and after that run that bios and if after that you still get the same white screen...connect the external monitor with your laptop and work on that for some time...after connecting the external monitor use Fn+F8 to toggle the screen and after some time when you get the white screen on your laptop monitor adn you don't get the white screen on your external monitor..it means that the lcd screen needs to be replaced and if you get the same white screen on external the mobo needs to replaced if it has the integrated video card otherwise video card needs to be replaced....tell me if that works for you?
