Question about Sony VAIO VGN-CR220E/P Notebook

1 Answer

Horizontal lines Hi Andrew, I have had my Sony Vaio for only 1 year and I've had several problems with it. My current problem right now is that every time I put my computer on hibernation and turn it back on, I have colorful horizontal lines that appear on my screen. What can I do to prevent this from happening in the future? Or what can I do to fix it? Thank you so much! Regina

I am a laptop/PC technician and this problem is probably being caused by either a loose or damaged screen cable inside the laptop, a faulty or overheating graphics card or an incorrect graphics driver.

Unfortunately without actually seeing it I can't say which it is, but I would first off get a PC or laptop specialist to check to see if the graphics card driver software is correct, as this is easy and quick to sort out if this is your problem.

If this isn't the problem then I would just backup all your documents/files and return the laptop to Sony under warranty as a hardware fault could be expensive to repair.

I hope this helps.

Does anything ever post to the screen when you press the power button? if not, it's your video card. The links below are for 1 long and 2 short and they say it's the video card. I've heard that Sony extended the warranty on some models so you might want to go to their website and check yours or in a google search type: Sony GPU Extended Warranty. I did and I see they extended it from one to three years. They have the faulty Nvidia Graphics Card which was a major problem for many manufacturers.

Hi, I purchased the same model in November 2009. About 2 weeks ago a single horizontal line appeared. Each day another appeared until today when the video went out. Now it displays bands of vertical colored lines like a pastel colored rainbow. Did you find a solution to the problem?

Making a buzzing sound, and displaying horizontal lines


Contact Sony and tell them the problem. As long has youve had the playstation3 for under one year and have not touched the warranty seal at the side of the playstation then you can have your old playstation3 replaced.

Sony Laptop screen problems


Hi,
I always think Vaios are worth Repairing.
If It,s An FX model Or F they,re a great Machine. P3 were the Most reliable Processor Made ( in My opinion )
I see Sony-Vaio As the rolls-Royce Manufacturer Of Laptops.
Therefore i would suggest Purchasing a replacement Screen.
It,s not that difficult to replace. With A service Manual ( e-Bay ) you,ll get a Screen 14" Or 15" Depending On Model. For About £80-£140. for a laptop that Probably retailed At Over £1000.00 in it,s day. i,d say go for it.

I have several replacement Screens myself, if your in the UK.
i,d offer you a full replacement Screen Fitted On your item.

Sony Bravia XBR 40" LCD


First, HORIZONTAL CENTER.
1) Press MENU.
2) Scroll to SETTINGS.
3) Scroll to SCREEN.
4) Go to HORIZONTAL CENTER. Move the picture to the right. Hopefully, the line will go away. Otherwise, there is a problem with the pixels or the signal processor. Call 1-800-222-SONY. Or, http://eservice.sony.com. Have a high-limit credit card handy for out of warranty repairs. Sorry about that.
