Default blank page when errors occur

Can somebody please tell me what is set up wrong on the server or how to overcome this. I am on a windows server. The problem is when I have any kind of error I get a blank page. I doesn't matter what it is.

I got this example out of the beginning php book, str_replace("hello", "hillo");, this produces a blank page on my server, I tried it on a friends server and get the following message

Warning: Wrong parameter count for str_replace() in /hsphere/local/home/mysite/mysite.com/errortest.php on line 2

I ran phpinfo() and it shows display_errors as being on. Any suggestions?

How about error_reporting? Is it set to E_ALL? Is the log_errors directive set to off?

I've had a similer problem for a while on my XP development server (running PHP 5.1 / Apache 2). However, instead of bothing with tracking down the real problem I set error_reporting(E_ALL); at runtime, which seems to counter-act the problem. Though my INI file says error_reporting = E_ALL, display_errors = On, and log_errors = Off. Dunno what else it could be.
