Question about Sony VAIO (PCWA-A200)

1 Answer

Laptop Screen turns black or red all of a sudden

I own a VAIO FS97OP model laptop. While I was using it, it turned red after a while. Though I could still hear the sounds from what i was previously watching, the screen was still red. I remember the screen kind of blinked twice or once before the whole screen turned red. I had to resort to turning it off by pushing the off button because it won't hibernate as well when i try to close the laptop. It was alright (turned normal) when i turned it back on. Can anyone tell me why this is so? Should i be worried of what happened or is this normal? thanks :)

Re: Laptop Screen turns black or red all of a sudden

Hi, Sounds more like a glitch in the movie file you were watching which caused the video problem. Something like this is rather common while watching CDs with scratched surface. Since there is no apparent problem after rebooting, then you probably need not be worried. However, if this frequently happens, then you probably should have the memory upgraded or at least checked. Good luck.

Mylaptop turns on and runs but the screen is completely black. What do I do? The power button is on and the battery charging light is on but the screen doesnt come on at all. I can hear the laptop booting...

Connect an external monitor then power up both the monitor and laptop. If you get display on external monitor, you have 3 possible problem. First, LCD is bad, Second, CFL on your LCD is bad and Third, the cable connecting your motherboard and LCD is bad or the connection is loose. It is better to replace the whole LCD assembly than to repair.

If you have external monitor but still can't get a display, your problem may be on the motherboard.

Wireless internet on my computer is switched off

If you're using a laptop, you need to turn on the wireless switch. For most laptops, there is a wireless button or the combination of Fn + F2 keys.

I dropped my vaio P11 and now the screen is red or mauve. Isn there asny solution?

Dropping your PC is never a good thing. I'm sorry, but you probably damaged something inside the laptop itself (more than likely the monitor)and there probably isn't going to be any solution that you can do to fix it yourself. I would suggest taking it to a qualified technician and have them look at it. Its going to cost $$$ so you need to decide do you want it fixed or just scrap it an buy an new one altogether? Good luck, sorry I was unable to provide happier news.
