Title: white screen
Post by: nanners on November 03, 2012, 12:12:27 PM
Upon starting up my HP Desktop Vista 64 bit I get a white screen. I can't do anything, it just sits there.........white.

I can get to safe mode command prompt , but I don't know what to type in the box.

any help appreciated, thanks

Thanks for the info , but this is happening on my desktop computer. Since it happened when I turned it on this morning, I have been able to get to the screen for system restore and restored it back a few days, before this happened to me. Hubby was looking at a joke site and the screen went completely white, no task bar, nothing.   I am going to run Malwarebytes to see if anything shows up there.

Once again, thanks  ;D
