Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-S2HP laptop which is having a boot up problem. I have searched online for ways to overcome this with no success. After calling a laptop repair company I have been told there is a chipset problem with the model and is unrepairable!! Is this true? If not how can i repair it? Thanks.

The problem is that on pressing the 'On' Button at Start up the computer starts up but the screen doesn't work! After about 20mins of turning on/off it was occasionally boot with the screen coming on, however it will not come on at all now. When it did turn on occasionally the computer would turn itself off for no apparent reason or sometimes crash and the dreaded blue screen appear.
Any ideas?

I need schematics for Sony Vaio VGN-NR21z


I don't have the schematics for the Sony Vaio VGN-N series laptops, but I can provide a link to the disassembly instructions,

I'm hoping this is more inline, with what you really are after.
Scroll down with your eyes to the bottom line of listings in blue.
The line that starts with VGN-A
Scroll over to - VGN-N, and Left-click on it.

This is a PDF file.
You may have to wait up to 30 seconds, before you see the first page come up.

I have sony vaio VGN-CS12GH so can i use graphic card in my laptop.


The graphics circuitry is integrated into the motherboard in a laptop and you can't install a different card. If you are looking for a way to improve graphic performance, your only option is to download the latest video drivers from either the computer manufacturer or video chipset makers' websites, and see if any new capabilities have been added.
