Jessc7 is correct.  This is most likely a memory addressing problem or a video driver problem.  I would suggest following ibexsystems advice and ensuring that you have the latest video card display drivers since it is the simplest of the 2 potential solutions.

Dell SE178WFP
DELL SE178WFP is the model of the monitor ???? http://reviews.dell.com/2341/320-6139/reviews.htm

when talking to some of my colleges at work about this problem one of the guys here says his got the same problem with his pc and he says its down to the monitor.

Could you try another monitor on this PC?

To find out what video card  you are running
click the vista start button --> right click computer --> select manage --> click device manager -->display adapters

this should give you what name for what adapter you have.

Intel G33/G31 Express Chipset family
Logmein mirror driver

Really don't have another monitor that would work
Ok make sure you get the latest chipset drivers from here http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/CS-026488.htm

then as explained above go to device manager but this time right click the Intel g33/g31 express chipset family and click uninstall and uninstall logmein mirror driver the computer will be asked for a reboot.

Reboot the pc and install the latest driver that you downloaded from the link above

Also why do you have logmein installed do u remotely connect to this pc ?

We use logmein here and the reason for the white screen could be because your computer is reconnecting to logmein I know when we connect to a PC it can make the screen go blank for a few seconds. Which sounds like your problem......?

Done all of that and still have the blank screen
as you have tryed all of that i would defently put it down to the monitor.....

try another monitor on the pc to rule this out......its the only thing we not tryed
