Question about Sony VAIO FXA63 Notebook

1 Answer

PCG-FXA63 I got a laptop from my professor for FREE... sounds great, but the catch is, the screen is completely messed up... I can barely make out windows and other words, but there's triple exposure, scan lines, ghosting, and lots of pixelation I figure it's something with the gpu setup on this particular laptop, but can't find a way to 1.) trace the problem... 2.) fix it 3.) find something online that will tell me how to fix it Any kinda help would be appreciated, thanx

1st connect the system to an external monitor, see if the issue occurs externally. If it does, next update the video drivers with the latest one from sony. If that doesn't resolve, then replacement of the video card is in order. I'm not positive, but generally the ATI Rage Video card is soldered on the motherboard, if this is the case, the motherboard will need replacement, hance why it was given away

Here is one option for a replacement MB

You could try removing the cmos battery for a few minutes and letting it reset your bios. Not sure if you feel comfortable enough messing arounnd on the motherboard though.

Screen is white


You could have a video controller problem or a LCD screen problem, what you are seeing is the backlighting but no video information.
To check if you have a video problem, connect an external monitor to your laptop and bootup your laptop, if you see Windows booting up the external monitor then the video controller is OK, and your problem is the LCD screen or the video cable connection on the motherboard (may need reseating).
If you cannot fix the LCD screen then use your laptop with an external monitor.

Black screen


Easy Fix! There seems to be a connection problem. If it still powers on, the problem is cable that sends the sigal to the screen. All you have to do is open up the laptop and replace the wire. Simple!
