    I have a Gateway NE56R41U laptop that had a cracked screen.

    I ordered a new screen and connecting cable (from mother board to back of new screen), the cable was severed in one spot.

    When I reassembled the unit with the replacement parts, all I get is a completely white washed screen display!

    I can hook up an ext monitor via the VGA port and see everything OK, startup graphics, login, Win 10 screen, go online, play Youtube videos, etc..

    It seems as though the ext VGA Monitor screen functions OK (No GPU problems), unless the "VGA out" is different than the "video out" to the attached 15.6" WXGA screen?.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance cmangle
