    White Screen on Windows 10


      Hello, I have an older Compaq Presario CQ61 with an AMD Radeon HD 4200 Graphics Card.

      A few weeks ago, I started getting a White Screen. Sometimes the system comes back in a few seconds or a minute or two, sometimes I have to hibernate.

      Any ideas on how to fix this? The only other thing I have found is to wait for another update from Microsoft.

          1.       Do you receive any error message?

          2.       Have you made any changes to the computer prior to this issue?


          There is a possibility that some third party programs installed on the computer is causing the issue.


          Method 1:

          Step 1:

          You may try to boot the computer in safe mode. Refer the following link.

          Step 2:

          If this issue doesn’t occur in safe mode then you may perform a clean boot. Refer the following article.

          NOTE: Once you are done with clean boot, please follow step 7 in the article to set your computer back to normal startup.


          Method 2:

          You may try to perform SFC (System File Checker) scan on your computer and check. Refer the following article.

          Method 3:

          I would also suggest you to scan your computer with Microsoft Safety Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.
