Customer Question

White screen on power up Lenovo X1 carbon
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Computer Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: When I power up Lenovo X1 Carbon the only thing that comes up is a white screen. Control alt del produces a black screen which then turns white again. Power on of etc does nothing
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Computer Technician should know?
Customer: Don't think so
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Computer Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

I'm on holiday in Australia with no access to tools or even the simplest of diagnostics. I'm communicating with an IPhone via 3G. I guess I'll have to take it to a repair shop if I can find one.
