Black/White screen on laptop

Hi guys dont know if anyone can help with this puzzle i have an advent 7116 laptop.
I am having problems with the booting up of this machine,when i put in the hard drive and try to start it up you can feel/hear the hard drive reading but nothing appears on the screen so i thought it may be a video card problem,so i removed the video card and tried to start up the laptop and the screen was white,doe anyone have any idea what this could be.thankyou in advance.

Go to Control Panel
Click on "Hardware and Sound"
Scroll all the way to the bottom and click on "NVIDIA Control Panel"
This will open a new window where you can set the color on your screen back to normal.

hope this works for u..
