It started a few days ago.... My computer started freezing when left idle. I had to restart it. Usually I could just tap mouse or keyboard to resume. Then I couldn't recover from hibernation anymore. So i started shutting down completely. Then yesterday I got a white screen, I restarted and as soon as I clicked on a program( Internet browser) the screen went white, so I rebooted to safe mode, 30 minutes later safe mode goes white. I do a mem check, nothing, pc goes blank after boot screen. So after some researching I remove gpu and ram, reinstall in same place, pc boots fine I play games for a few hours an search the web. I wake up today to start it, it goes black after I click logon. Then it goes blank before the logon screen. I remove mobo battery reinstall, the factory mobo boot screen starts, I click delete, go to boot screen, it says no something, long story short i had to press f1 to go to bios settings, 5 seconds later the screen goes black. Now it won't Sven get that far. I start the computer, the mobo factory boot screen appears for 2-3 seconds and screen goes black.

Could be video card or monitor, could be the motherboard or power supply also. Test with another monitor first.

It's a brand new monitor. The video card is used however, and the mobo is refurbished.

But idk, my video card has inputs for two separate monitors. When I use the top one, the screen stays black the entire time, but when I use the bottom one it only goes black after a few moments.

But wait a sec, could my keyboard be responsible? I left my keyboard at my dads house, so I've been using this old keyboard from a windows 95 computer. I disconnected the ram and gpu, and started it, then restarted it with the gpu and ram connected. It booted, and was stable at the login screen, then when I plugged in the old keyboard, a few seconds later my screen went white. Also when I was at my dads house I used another old keyboard instead of my usual one. That's when these problems first started. I'm not saying its the sole answer, but it makes some sense. I may have o ly made it worse by not using the safe mode in the best way and restarting the wrong way. What do you think? I've heard of a similar effect by keyboards when I was searching for answers.

If you think it's the keyboard, try another one. I doubt it though, it's probably the video card or motherboard. Power supply may be causing this, but not as likely.

Netbook screen turned white. Can't even open it up.

I have the ASUS 1025 C Eec series. The netbook is with my daughter. Can't get to it. Screen is white with some black lines. Never dropped. Plugged into another laptop and all the data is there. Suggestions? She is in Honduras. Will look for a repair/service center in Capital. Anything in the meantime?

Dead screen, for a netbook it's probably cheaper to buy a full working one instead of paying someone to swap out the screen. Also do not post in other people's threads, it's against forum rules and also causes confution for whoever started the old thread and anyone that replied in it as they often get emails when a new answer is put in.
