spiderlucci, much more information needed.
Take us through your boot process, do you get into windows normally?

Make and model of your machine would help also.

What was the reason to uninstall the display driver?

Could be a system restore to resolve this and it might be a good idea to do this from safe mode

sorry about that.. ...
Model: 1066AWU Laptop
Lenovo Windows 7 service pack 1 64bit 6gb ram
intel coro 2.50
display - standard VGA

I uninstall my display driver to see if the white screen would go away... which it did.

I woke up and the white screen with the windows logo show up at boot ... than the blue screen show right away with the windows logo than boot normal

I hope this helps and thanks Spider :)

your running on the standard VGA Graphics go to control panel device manager and try updating the IntelĀ® HD Graphics 3000

try that and it didn't work I called the Lenovo and they said this is normal since Im not having real issues!!! why I don't believe that?!... also it seems the touchpad doesn't seem to work also.

I hit fn +F6 to try to enable the touchpad and it didn't work.
also went in safe mode and it still gave me the same problem

now could this be an Operating system issue that may need to reinstall?
I know the bios may need to be cleared anyway because the tech guy that use to fix my friends laptop put a password on it and now never responds to his phone since he doesn't do computers anymore.

so I understand if this is the cmos and I have had exper in working with some laptop... more on desktops. here is a link of the motherboard of the V570

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lenovo.....7675.l2557

i notice a red and black wire connected to the cmos "IF THIS IS THE CMOS"??? right next to the ram.... just never seen one like this and I also understand that some laptop won't let you remove the cmos either "Force it off" if this is the cmos how should I remove the battery... just disconnect the wires only?, battery only?

if I should have made a new post... I wasn't sure.

thanks for the help Spider

The red and black wire connects the CMOS battery to the mobo through a connector (slot). Every laptop manufacturer/model has its way of clearing CMOS. Maybe the user manual will help you with this or the manufacturer's site. You can try disconnecting the battery and hope that works but be sure to return the settings to optimal and save.

Unless you update the graphics driver from standard VGA to your model's graphics driver as mfletch said, you would experience anomalies.
