My 17" laptop has a bright white screen and nothing works

My 17 inch MacBook Pro (6 years old) has a bright white screen when I turn it on and nothing works. Is there a fix?

Have you tried to boot from installation disc one that came with your computer?

    My ipod touch only has a bright white screen .Restoring doesnt fix it

    Try:

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • My ipod 4g has a frozen white screen and will not turn off, any advice?

    My daughter's ipod 4th gen (only 4 months old, bought direct from Apple) suddenly has a frozen white screen and will not turn off. We cannot reboot it by pushing and holding the two buttons, even when held up to one full minute. When we plug it into the computer, the computer does not recognise it nor does iTunes, so we can't even do a full system restore. Help! Any suggestions of how we can reset to factory settings without using iTunes please?

  • Iphone 4s will not turn on, you can not restore with itunes. What to do? Phone lit white screen and nothing can be done

    iphone 4s will not turn on, you can not restore with itunes. What to do? Phone lit white screen and nothing can be done?

    Reboot computer. Open iTunes on computer. Connect iPhone to computer with USB cable. Hold both home and power buttons until iTunes recognizes iPhone in Recovery Mode. This usually takes about 20 seconds of holding both buttons. Click the Restore button of iTunes. If still problem, all iPhone 4S have full Warranty. Make Genius reservation and take to Apple for resolution.

  • My iPod 6th Generation has a blank white screen and is apparently corrupted

    I have tried restoring, and just don't know what else to do, pleeaase help!
    Also, what happened to cause this? Is it the iPod? Or computer? (Macbook Pro)

    Have you tried a reset or restore of the device in iTunes to see if that helps?  To reset the device, press and hold both the Select (Center) and Menu buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.
    Otherwise, connect the iPod to your iTunes library and click the Restore button from under the iPod's Summary tab.
    If the issue still persists, it's likely hardware related. A white screen could be the result of a loose LCD ribbon cable, or a damaged LCD screen.  Either way you'll need to have the iPod serviced in order to gain fully functionality of it again.

  • ITunes opens to a white screen and nothing more

    Hi all,
    I updated to the latest iTunes 11.whatever and my iTunes just will not open despite my trying all the suggestions in help articles by Apple:  opening in Safety mode, restarting computer, reinstalling iTunes, updating Windows, deleting Security software.  etc.  etc.   Suggestions?  I've never had problems like this before.  I'm on an Acer Aspire laptop running windows 7.

    I've been having the same issue. Updated to the latest iTunes and the first thing that happens is it displays "Checking iTunes Libary" for about 5 minutes. When iTunes finally opens, all I get is a white screen with my cursor displaying the spinning blue donut indicitive of waiting for the program. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes as well as completely uninstalling all the Apple software on my computer and reinstalling iTunes. I've never had this problem before and at this point I'm considering switching to different software if I can't get this resolved. I'm running Windows 8.1 on a Samsung laptop that is only around 3 months old.

  • White screen and nothing else

    I installed mountain lion, after I decided to update iPhoto and iWork, during updating I got message that finder doesn't work properly and my Mac quit to do anything, I decided to reload, after that I was stocked in the entrance white screen, with no any option to improve the situation. Is there anybody who can tell what's wrong with that OS? And what should I do?

    Try resetting the PRAM by restarting your computer while simultaneously holding down the Command-Option-P-R keys until the computer restarts a second time.
    Hope this helps
