I have an IPC Powernote M laptop.When I boot up the screen is all lines then it goes white!
I have conected it to an external monitor but am unable to find what is wrong.
Is my laptop dead or can it be fixed?
Many thanks in advance

You don`t actually say, but I assume that when you connected it to an external monitor all was well.

If thats the case, then probably your TFT display is faulty. If that`s the case, then it is certainly not worth repairing.

Have you tried adjusting the brightness, my laptop went through a phase when it appeared dead on boot up, but adjusting the brightness revealed that contrary to initial appearances all was actually working. I put up with it for some months, it only went away when I reformated after a Kaspersky AV trial caused terminal problems.
