Have an HP Touchsmart 300-1000 I'm working on. Chief complaint so far is that upon booting into any operating system, either the screen goes dark (Linux boot CD's) or the screen turns white (Windows 7, it's main OS). Even tried Windows 7 safe mode, and same deal. When it gets to where it's about to show the desktop, screen turns white.
What's strange is that when I ctrl+alt+del, I get the normal blue Windows 7 screen with the usual options. Task manager, etc.
Any ideas on what could be the problem? I'm frustrated so far.
