So are you only experiencing this issue when you have no keyboard connected? Is that correctly understood? A white screen usually indicates graphics issue, if the white screen is there no matter what you do on startup

A white screen is indicative of a failed hard drive or corrupted system. You need anytime of USB keyboard as your bluetooth is not loading. Once you have one hooked up try booting holding down the option key to see if you can access the repair partition and run Disk Utilities. That failing, try booting from an external USB drive with a Mac system on it.
