My screen is white


Sony Vaio is one of the most prominent brands of laptops on the market, and also one of the most expensive. The laptops, created by Sony, are known for their efficient processor functionality and sleek designs. While the Sony Vaio line of laptops are considered high-end, they are also prone to display problems.

Symptoms
Among the problems facing Sony Vaio laptop screens are blackouts. When these blackouts occur, the monitor turns solid black, and upon rebooting the laptop, light will briefly flash on only to blackout again. Additionally, there have been reports of an issue which causes the screen to flicker intermittently until it goes out all together. b> Troubleshooting b> Blackout displays and the continuous flickering of Sony Vaio screens can be caused by various issues taking place inside the laptop. It is not necessarily true that the problem lies within the LCD screen itself, with display issues often occurring as a result of problems with other parts of the laptop. You can test whether or not the screen is defective by connecting the laptop to an external monitor. If the display comes up normally, then the problem lies within the laptop's LCD screen. b> Parts b> If your Sony Vaio is connected to an external monitor and suddenly goes black, then the problem may have to do with the laptop's sleep button. The sleep button latch located inside the device may be jammed or broken, thus putting the screen in a permanent sleep mode until the latch is fixed. Encountering hissing sounds when the laptop is running indicates a faulty circuit board, usually damaged due to overheating. Display issues can also occur when certain parts of the laptop, such as the hard drive, have been replaced. b> Design b> Some owners have made complaints about Sony Vaio design flaws, specifically mentioning defects in the laptop's boards. Among the problems discovered after opening the laptop include burnt LCD fuses, as well as worn out circuits and internal latches. Some of these events may occur even in newly purchased units. Sony has not yet responded to various consumer complaints and has not yet issued any recalls in response to reported problems. b> Repair b> When repairing a defective Sony Vaio laptop screen, it is important that owners remain aware of the nine screws which hold the laptop cover and the board together. Not doing so can easily lead to further damage to the Vaio due to static electricity, and may even lead to a short circuit. For owners who are experienced in the area of laptop repair, parts are readily available for purchase, allowing for cost efficient repair. b> Extended desktop You will need to connect to another monitor or your television to your computer with the vga lead monitor connection. Click start control panel display change display settings adjust resolution this may vary depending on your operating system You should see a no 1 and a no 2 with detect and identify keep an eye on the screen when you select the number tabs this may vary depending on your operating system when you select the no 2 tab this should be the extended desktop always click apply after making any changes. or Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to monitors right click select scan for hardware changes if you can get an extended desktop your monitor is faulty if you cant get an exended desktop

It sounds like you may be having a video related issue. These issues may indicate that you have a problem with either your video card or your lcd screen. To isolate the issue, you have to connect an external monitor to the VGA port of the portable system. There should be an S2 button on your laptop which should allow you to switch videos. Press that and if the video appears on the monitor, then it is an issue with the LCD screen. If nothing happens, you have a video card failure. These are due for replacement already.

It is a knwon issue with the VGNAR100, 200, 300 series Computer that the NVIDIA Card shiped with the Computer is malfunctioning.

In July 2008, NVIDIA announced that some notebook computers with NVIDIA graphic processors manufactured with a certain material set were failing in the field at a higher than normal rate. Since that announcement, Sony, in cooperation with NVIDIA, has been looking into any possible effect to VAIO® notebooks with NVIDIA graphic processors. Until recently we had not identified any VAIO models that were affected by this issue.

Have you guys heard of any problems with the Sony VGN-CR507E


Well this sounds like to me that it has spontaneously failed, (No LED lights no anything" (sic) during that "Updating" If you have NO led's then in all probability, the PSU has faulted. Maybe it suffered a Power Spike? Or Power Outage? In any event, try troubleshooting the power supply.

Screen faded into black


Yes, usually the tubes in the LCD go dead or another cause of this problem is the LCD inverter board that goes dead. I suggest you take it back to where you bought it or to a sony service centre.
