Either of 2 things.
1. The ribbon cable that connects the screen to the board may have become loose. If you have tools it should be a quick fix.
2. The screen is smashed.

I have a Vaio PCV-W20, and a few months ago the screen went black. The problem is that now I only get a visible screen for a few seconds and it goes black again. For example this is what I see when the...


Ok try this, at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems.

Black screen with curser


It is what is called the "Black Screen of Death (BlSod)/(KSOD)" if you are using Vista or the later Windows 7. There are many causes for the BiSod/KSOD... some may say it is due to Micro**** updates and patches or as what Micro**** claims that is is due to malware infection, most likely something from the Daonol family of Trojans.

Google for it or I'll share you this site to give you some insights of the BiSod/KSOD.

here's one of many you could read:

For a fix you may follow these steps:


After the black screen with cursor appears, press the shift key several times (5 to 10 times). A window should appear that reads “Go to the Ease of Access Center to disable the keyboard shortcut.” Click on that item, then follow these instructions:
  1. In the explorer window that appears, clear the address entry and type MSCONFIG then press enter. Run MSCONFIG.
  2. Uncheck the two items in selective startup and press apply, then restart the computer.
  3. The computer should start normally. Now click the Start button and type MSCONFIG again, then press enter. Uncheck Windows Event Log and Windows Event Collector, then restart the system.
This may or may not work on your state but your last resort is to extract your hard drive and back-up to another unit before re-installing your OS.


Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate.

3 month old Sony Vaio notebook keeps turning off by itself, won't even last more then a couple seconds to a couple minutes, tried system restore and defragmenting, and disk cleaning...still nothing!! could...


Try on the BIOS/System Setup and check if its turning off there as well. To entere there, start your computer up, and when you see the Vaio logo press [Delete] several times. You will see a blue screen or black with information of your computer, leave it there for as long as it takes to shut down, if it doesn't then please let us know.

Problem with Sony Vaio pcv-rx860 (screen goes black at startup)


I would suggest first to try to take one stick of memory out and try to boot up the pc. Sometimes, one or both of the memory sticks can go bad or the memory slot on the motherboard itself can go bad. If that is not the case I would then remove all of the usb connected to the computer and last i would test the power supply.

Cannot start Sony VAIO PCG-5J2L /Goes to black screen only


During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.

If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.

If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".

Won't boot


Try pressing F8 as your machine gets ready to start windows. Keep tapping it until you get a menu. You can try "most recent settings that worked" or failing that try starting Windows in safe mode. If it will start in safe mode regress it to a point before your failed download using System Restore. If it won't start at all, you may need to reinstall Windows.
