Mountain lion really bright white screen on boot?

Since I installed Mountain Lion I can't seem to get rid of the really bright white screen with Apple logo at bootup.
I RESET the PRAM and it will work for one boot and then go back to the really bright screen burning my irises out.
It can't be the battery because my computer keeps the time and date correctly.
I have also checked the STARTUP Disc and that is working right too. I even tried redoing permissions through Disk Utility and that didn't help.
Anyone have any ideas on this one?

Anyone have a answer to this?

  • Bright White Screen.

    My Ipod Nano was working fine. I turned it off, and went to bed. The next morning I got up and turned it on. All that showed was a bright white screen. I reset it a couple of times, I pluged it up to the USB port, and I let it die completely. None of those things helped to fix my Ipod. It was not dropped and it did not get wet. All I did was set it down. When plugged up to the computer the computer will recognize it, but then it won't, yet after that it accepts it again. Does anybody have any words of wisdom? Does anybody think Apple will fix it?

    Try this:
    When your iPod comes up with the white screen, hold the center and menu buttons simultaneously until the screen goes black, then immediately hold the center and left (rewind) buttons. A menu should come up that shows you a few options. If this menu comes up, it might just mean that your internal storage is dead. If nothing comes up, then you might have a total hardware failure. If it is just the storage, the repair should cost less than buying a new nano or having an Apple Genius go in and repair multiple components. You might be able to attempt the repair yourself, but I really do not recommend that.

  • Installed os X Mountain Lion and now computer won't boot (first had keyboard issues-reverse caps)

    Hi all,
    I just updated my macbook air to osX mountain lion and now it will not boot at all.. At first I was having issues with the keyboard and keys typying weird characters.. and the caps lock was stuck on reverse.  Now I have nothing.. Can someone help.

    What happens when you try to boot?

  • I have big problems with mountain lion. you can not have a boot disk system I resulted in the need to re-download the os from scratch impiegandoci 8 hours, it is outrageous even with windows 95.

    at least that the operator has confirmed to me that he called me. I also have problems with either the start of the mac with the power off. I can not understand if it crashes or is just very very slow.
    Finally, I have a problem with the external hard disck. I often said to have been ejected incorrectly (not true) and I start to restore the startup recovery disk because disk utility is ineffective from the normal operating system .. is a shocking thing, but how you reduced. in four years it had never happened. seem to have windows or worse. Wake up.

    You are on Windows 2000, you do not have a "Firefox" button, and should consider yourself to be fortunate in that you still have menus and don't have to do anything to get the menus back instead of the "Firefox" button. (The same applies to Windows XP users).
    Use the "File" menu to get to Import. You are not on Windows 7 or Vista, and don't have to put up with the nonsense added for Aero.
    If you want the "Firefox" button you can get it with View -> toolbars -> (uncheck) Menu Bar. The menu bar and the "Firefox" button were supposed to be mutually exclusive (which is impossible in some cases without being incompatible).
    Once you are using the "Firefox" button ...
    Use the "Alt" key to view the menu bar (temporarily) containing File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, and Help. On Windows 7 and Vista, the menu bar was hidden by default in Firefox 4 and above. These menu items are more or less available under the "Firefox" button which has the most used of the built-in Firefox menu items available in a different format.
    To get back to having menus again. "Firefox" button -> Options (second column) -> (check) Menu Bar
    You can make '''Firefox 7.0.1''' look like Firefox 3.6.*, see numbered '''items 1-10''' in the following topic [ Fix Firefox 4.0 toolbar user interface, problems (Make Firefox 4.0 thru 8.0, look like 3.6)].

  • I have a bright white screen when turning on my ipod nano 7th gen.  Have tried resetting etc etc. Any further ideas?

    I have a bright white screen when turning on my nano 7th gen. Have tried resetting and restoring settings - no change. Any ideas please?

    Hello pipworms,
    I would be concerned too if my iPod nano's was just showing a white screen.  I recommend following the steps below:
    Display shows a white screen
    Try putting the iPod into disk mode:
    Reset the device (Reset the device by pressing the Sleep and Home buttons simultaneously until the display shows the Apple logo. This should take about eight seconds).
    When the Apple logo appears, press and hold the Volume Down and Volume Up buttons simultaneously until the device enters Disk Mode.
    While the device is in disk mode, sync it to iTunes and try to restore.
    I got this information from the following article for the 6th generation iPod nano.  The steps are the same, except I updated the reset steps with the reset for the 7th generation iPod nano:

  • IPhone frozen/no brightness/white screen

    So yesterday it start with my iphone telling me that I needed to connect to iTunes and restore because I couldn't make or receive calls. I reset it, and seemed OK. I later tried to play doodle jump, which crashed upon opening, so I reinstalled it to no avail. I discovered this morning that wasn't just doodle jump, but all 3rd party apps. It also went through stages of not turning on, telling me to restore it, and still having an image on the screen but there was absolutely no brightness to it, and instead of the screen going black when I press the sleep button on top, I would get a bright white screen. Giving up on resets, I came home from school and restored it, and it worked perfectly. Now it's 5.5 hours later and it just froze, unfroze, and had no brightness. I reset it, and now it wont turn on.
    Any suggestions? Thanks

  • Bright white screen when video is paused.

    Hello All,
    I've looked everywhere for a solution to this problem and there has been no previous discussion. Basically, whenever the Video is paused, instead of the paused frame being shown, there is a bright white screen. It is worth nothing that this issue happens when I use the Darwin Streaming server. If I serve the video using IIS, the issue is not present.
    This issue using the  Quicktime plugin is present in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and IE.
    If someone could push me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated.

  • I have a bright white screen on my Gen 4 ipod nano. I can still see text if I look hard enough, and it still plays music and stuff, but it's really hard to see.

    As described above, my screen is bright white, but it still plays music. It's really hard to see, and I've tried everything. I manually restarted it like 20 times, I updated software and reset it, and I've just waited. It's happened once before, but after I waited 20 minutes it worked, and that was 6 months ago. But this time, it seems to just stay with a white screen.
    If anybody knows what to do to solve this, and what caused this, please answer.

    Water damage is not covered, and I guess Apple tech will find out about it as soon as they open the device.
