Question about Sony VAIO PCV-W20 PC Desktop
When I power up the display tries to come up, will stay on intermittently for a moment, and then goes dark. I can see an image very faintly, almost as if it's burned in, but it is an image of the currently running program. I tried hitting f8 as it starts up, but that has no effect. I normally just log out and leave the unit on all of the time, and there is a screen saver running. The problem arose when I was away for a few days.
If you can see the moving image faintly then it sounds like a problem with the backlight on the screen. Backlights can fail, but usually a cause is an impact of some kind.
