comes up normally, but within less than one minute the entire LCD screen
turns white (lit up, but no image: solid white). It happens in both
Windows and even in BIOS setup, so it's not an OS or driver issue, it's
hardware. I've updated the BIOS, that made no difference. If you
switch the screen off and back on with Fn+F5 (toggle between LCD and
external CRT), it comes back, but it goes white again within 30 seconds.
While the screen is not white, it's perfect.
Does anyone know what is most likely to cause this symptom? Something
in the LCD panel, or something on the motherboard?
