Graphics Card Sony Vaio VGC -V3M

I have recently upgraded the RAM and to windows 7 and everything is working fine other than the visible screen is much smaller than what is possible and I am told that I need a new driver for the graphics card a nVidia GeForce FX Go5700. Searched on the Internet for one However have been unable to find a fix that does it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    Thank you, I will have a look, the main problem to resolve is that since upgrading there is a black strip at each side of the wide screen.

SOURCE: Installing New Graphics Card.How do you disable the onboard GC?

To disable the onboard graphics go into your CMOS settings and in there you should find something that says Graphics choices should be onboard or add on or some other form. It all depends on who made your BIOS. As far as a sound card not sure.

Hello, I have a Sony Vaio VGC-V3M and I have just a black screen after starting it. I can hear windows loading, and I get the vaio logo, then the Windows XP logo but then blackness. I can get the Bios...


If you can see the windows logo and get into the bios then it is not the graphics card.

Most likely cause is the os itself, just after post press F8 repeatetly until you have the boot mode page open and choose safe mode, in safe mode do a system restore, goto start bar, programs, accessories, system tools and system restore, and start from a resent restore point. This can can take a while, so be patient and let the computer restore itself until you have the windows screen up.

If the restore dosent work, goto safe mode again, right click on my computer goto properties and enter device manager, in there under display adapters click on the plus sign and uninstall the graphics card, reboot. hope this helps post back if need farther help.

Connecting a Toshiba lcd tv to a Sony Vaio VGC-LA3


you should have a (vga) tv-out socket usually blue with about 16 pins in it,if you have not which is unusual then refer to sony for the laptops specs and location of tv-out socket.
The Nvidia graphics card should have one I believe the Gforce go card is the one for your system unless upgraded and is advertised to support this function.
