It could be your GPU or your monitor.

First, try a different cord to see if that helps. If not, try a different monitor. If the problem goes away, it's with the monitor.

If the problem persists, it's time to take a closer look at your GPU. If you have another GPU to switch, I would do it in this case.

Good question.

Did you try another cord?

Does the power LED go off or stay on when you shut down?

When an LCD display goes white, it's one of the indications that it's dying.

I remember seeing this happen to an iPhone once, and then the display eventually stayed white (while on, of course).

If you're inclined, you could check the inverter and other components inside.

This could possibly be a broken solder joint.
