    Oh wow! 6 months, that's a long time without usage. Sounds like it got malfamished and died!

    Check the Apple Support Forums at the Apple website there is some discussion
    about white Screens.

    Command+Option+P+R at boot might do the trick. A PRAM reset (what this is) is a good starting point :)
