I've been trying to do my own research here and solve this problem but can't seem to. Basically, my laptop screen is going white at random times and for random amount of time.
All the drivers are up to date. The laptop gets hot, but it always has for the past 3 years with no recent change to make the screen go white. When I plug the laptop into a tv via hdmi, the laptop screen will go white while the tv continues to work fine. This leads me to believe its an issue with the lcd.
When the screen goes white, I have tried opening and closing the screen to see if there's any change. This doesn't seem to do anything. I have tried gently tapping on the screen and where it connects to the computer. At 1 point, I thought this did help. I tapped the screen, and the white flickered and color came back. But other times trying this it doesn't seem to do anything.
Are there any suggestions for me? Any other self checks I can do to see if the screen is broken, or any self repair I could try and do to see if its simply a loose wire? Thanks for the help!
