Graphic card on sony pcg-gr15

This notebook feel to have a defective graphic card: image on internal lcd screen appears shadowed, but on external screen is good. I think is a fault of a grapic card, or not? I don't know wich card is mounted (i see only a chip: is "ATI mobility radeon" and some labels "K6210090" and "VIF-17 KS-112" SONY). Someone can give me info to find a fault and where to find (if there is a case) a replacement card?

There is no replacement for this as the graphics controller is onboard, as in built into the motherboard and not a seperate dedicated graphics card. You can try updating the driver but i would firstly go to my computer>right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager>click '+' sign on display adapters, select the adapter and right click and select uninstall. Restart pc and the graphics driver will be reinstalled. If no change, then it could be that the lcd or the back lighting is faulty and requires a qualified repairer.

Unlikely to be a vga cable loose, but you can check by removing the switch panel cover and the screen to check it is still firmly housed.

test the laptop first in an external monitor, if you get an image, then the graphics chip is still ok

This then points to the screen, may appear undamaged, closer inspection with a torch, shone through the back of it will show any cracks you do not see straight away.

If the screen will not light up, fault is probably with a damaged backlight or inverter, you are then looking at a new (or 2nd hand) screen

Hello
These symptoms are not the inverter problem, What can you do if the laptop LCD screen turned completely white? From my experience I can tell that this problem may be related to the following: 1. Loose connection between the video cable and the LCD screen. 2. Defective LCD screen. 3. Defective motherboard (I assume the graphics card is integrated into the motherboard).
Check these by yourself or get assistance from sony support.
Good Luck

My sony vaio vgn-n365e screen is Dim


The fault could be a faulty CCFL lamp or inverter.
To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Sony Viao Display Problem


Sounds like you have some internal issues going on with this Laptop! If you are getting the same response when you connect an external monitor, then you more than likely have a few things going on here: A bad VGA port for starters, Issues with the Data card, and your graphic card is cetainly not helping. In addition you may want to check appropriate drivers as they are sometimes updated! But my best guess is that you are having issues internally! That could be costly! Sorry!

SONY PCG-GR315 graphic card


If it appears fine on an external monitor, it seems to me that the problem is most likely in the laptop's LCD panel rather than the video card. I did a google search and turned up exactly zero results regarding the SONY PCG-GR315 Are you sure you got that model number right? In any case, chances are your laptop's video device is not upgradeable. My advice is to go to a repair center or what-have-you and find out if it's the card or the panel; panels can be replaced more often than other integrated hardware.
