Screen Issues

Hello all,

today when I turned my laptop on, the screen was completely white. The laptop itself works fine, I currently have it hooked up to my TV via HDMI cable. I was just wondering if you all have any ideas as to what is causing this?

 

On a probable connected information, the hinges between the keyboard part and the screen part are actually broken on one side and the connection that has all the wires in it has also broken, not completely off, but if I move it backwards I can see the cables inside.

 

Any help would be amazing

Your second part sounds like it's the cause of the issue. The cables that run through the hinges are the screen power/data, as well as WiFi ariel usually. It sounds like you may have damaged one of those cables, maybe the inverter or the LCD screen cable.

If you are getting the image from your laptop to the tv without any problem, then the fault lies in the connection between the main part of the laptop and the screen. If the screen is still working, it would not cost too much to have the connection cables repaired. If the screen has failed, then the cost of replacing the screen may be nearly the price of buying a new laptop. If you don't want to use your tv all the time, you can attach an external monitor to your laptop.

I've dropped it many times, but the one which happened just before the screen didn't work was roughly 30 cms in height onto a jacket laying on the ground. But I am probably just going to keep it connected on my TV and then get a new one soon. The thing is constantly overheating and turning off as well as speed and power issues.

Sounds to me like it may be your ribbon has become dislodged given that there are broken parts where it would be connected. If your comfortable with doing so, open it up, unclip the ribbon and put it back again to see if this is the cause. Only do this if you are comfortable with playin around with hardware though.
