Question about Sony Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Does anyone know anything about an issue with nvidia graphics cards on the Sony all in one desktop VGC LM1E?

My Sony all in one dektop computer has over the last month developed pink and green wavy lines over the screen which is now turning to black and green and seperatelt white and pink blocks. I understand this is a problem with the nividia graphics card. Sony are washing their hands of it as it is out of warranty but my other searches on line suggest this is an inherent problem. Can anyone help?

Contact Nvidia to see if there is a recall or factory fix for the video card.

SOURCE: Coloured And Dotted Lines Across My Screen

Firstly, start your pc in safe mode (f8) on boot up. This will start your pc in vga mode, and hopefully the lines are still there, which will indicate a faulty graphics card, if they aren't it may be a problem driver. If no lines, go to Add/remove programmes and uninstal your graphics driver. Re boot pc then when it finds your card make sure you point Windows to the folder in which you have saved the driver files. The driver should then install, see if any change. You may have to try some older drivers, as Nvidia can be awkward at times. I have had varying problems with Nvidia and replaced with ATI cards with no problems.

SOURCE: Sharp aquos hdtv has sound but shows a white screen

yes and no. That particular tv you have is done for, but if you just purchased it 6 months ago, you are still within you 1 year warranty with sharp. they will ask you to take it to a authorized service center and you need to follow through with the process. about a week or 2 will pass and the service center will deem the unit unrepairable and sharp will replace it if they cant solve the problem. give em call..good luck 2u

Its a GPU problem.
It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.
1. Uncover ur PC casing
2. Locate the nVIDIA PCI-E Card.
3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU fan.
4. Remove the pin.
5. Switch on ur PC.
6. Still u may get scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes.
7. Press reset button on ur PC.
8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
thats all.

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.

Sony vaio 2a2m video card replacement


Can you please try to identify the correct product number? PCG-2A2M is a chassis number that can be common to more than one model. It may possibly be VGC-LM2E or similar - have a look on the screen surround or a sticker on the back.
If it is a VGC-LM1 or -LM2 series then there is a strong possibility that the Nvidia graphics chip is faulty. Have a look at the following link and type "Distorted video, random characters or blank screen issues due to failure of the NVIDIA graphics chip" in the search field.

Which video card i can get for gaming on this computer the vgc-rb53 vaio sony computer please help!!


You can fit any PCI Express X16 graphics card into your computer. The biggest issue that you may run into is power requirements. However, the majority of inexpensive graphics cards - ranging in prices under $80 - should be capable of gaming very well. If you're looking to go all out and make an investment in PC gaming, replacing the power supply will make the machine capable of using any video card. 1000 watt power supplies can be found online for around $100.

Diagonal screen tearing on laptop's with mobile nvidia graphics cards.
This issue has been here for a long time, and it only does this with nvidia graphics cards, whether vsync is on or off, it changes nothing. Several people have this issue when playing games or editing videos on a laptop with nvidia graphics card. I have posted issues with this on nvidia forums and microsoft forums. Nvidia has acknowledged the issue, but have yet to do anything on there part. So before anyone says "its a weak graphics card" or anything like that, take note this issue only happens when using the nvidia card. No matter how much you tinker with the nvidia control panel, nothibg changes, the issues permains. The goal of this post is to get the message out there to people who have notebooks with nvidia graphics cards, and hopefully someone, nvidia, or microsoft fixes the issues. here a link showing multiple people who suffer with the problem.

You are correct about the Video card that is in the system from the Factory but what you need is the interface which is x16 PCI Express/ So just look for a graphics card with that same interface. I have also supplied a link to Newegg. They have Great deals on viedo cards and they make it easy to search for the one you want. http://www.kqzyfj.com/click-3380368-10440558
