1. What did the repair shop say about the problem?
2. Have you checked the system settings/system appearance and manager settings, as well as your power saver settings?
3. A reinstallation of your base operating system, after loading your important files elsewhere should reset things to initial conditions.

Sony pcg-71315l mother board power on ok cooling fan not working but hard disc,DVD ROM ALL ARE WORKING ok but no display,15.6 screen ok.


Main processor [CPU] do not detect all the other peripherals. Any voltage loss can cause this. Your PCs motherboard need to be checked. It will be best to contact the authorized service centre for Sony; in this case. This is not a user detectable fault.

My screen monitor flickers almost every second.what should i do?it is very disturbing.


There can be fault in the inverter drive, the back light circuit or the main power board.
You will need to open the mother board and check on all leads on the mother board- use a magnification observing lens.
Tighten all connectors and solder suspected joints. Check with an external display to confirm the display circuit and then pin point to the display unit in detail of the drive section.

The screen on my M460E goes blue with two black lines through it. What could it be, video card problems?


Hi,

Yes this indicates that your video card has gone bad and would need to be replaced. Sadly, the whole mother board would have to be replaced. Hope I helped

My laptop turns on, but there's nothing on the screen.It's black.


It will either be your motherboard or LCD. The first thing you want to do it hookup an external monitor to your laptop and then power it on. If you get normal video on your external monitor then it is an issue with your LCD that can either be the cable that connects the LCD to the mother board or the LCD itself.

If you get no video at all on the laptop or the 2nd monitor then it is a problem with your motherboard and you will need to have that replaced. Be sure to test for video on the 2nd monitor with the laptop closed and then opened. Also, make sure you press the function keys on the keyboard to switch displays. It would be no fun to think the mother board was bad when it was really the LCD and you just forgot to enable the external port :)

Good luck!

Windows Vista


What you need is Disable and Turn Off ClearType Fonts in Windows Vista

Windows Vista by default applies ClearType effect to the fonts displayed on screen, in order to improve the appearance of text on certain types of computer display screens, especially LCD flat-panel monitors. As ClearType text actually sacrifices color or chrominance details aspect of image quality for light and dark or luminance detail, some people may not like the blurry font style in ClearType. Here’s a easy way to disable or turn off ClearType in Windows Vista.

1. Right click on any blank spot of desktop, and then select Personalize on pop-up context menu.
2. Select Window Color and Appearance.
3. Click on “Open classic appearance properties for more color options” link located at the bottom of the page.
4. Click on the Effects button.
5. Do one of the following:

Uncheck (untick) the “Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts” box.

or

Select “Standard” to replace ClearType in the drop down list under the above title.
6. Click OK, then click Apply, and finally finish with clicking OK again.

To enable or turn on ClearType effect again, simply reverse the setting in the Effects step.

On/Off power switch will not turn on. Compaq laptop which usually has this problem but seems to always succeed in shifting from off to on if I give the power button a little bit of pressing to the left...


I've seen several of these. All have been the connector. On the bottom of you on/off switch is what Compaq calls a button board. This board if OK but it plus into a connector on the mother board. If you look at this connector closely with a magnifying glass as you attempt to remove the button board you'll notice that the connector is coming off the mother board. The pins for this connector are almost as thin as a human hair. I don't know of any way to repair this. HP is only illing to sell a new mother brd. Good luck.

Hp pavilion dv2000 notebook will not boot up


hi,
i m in Hong Kong. The stupid HP repair center charged US 90 just for inspection!!!!! They they said the whole motherboard had to be replaced, thts additional US 630 dollars, the thing is just 1.5 yr old. They also said i don get to keep the broken mother board after replacement. This is simply irresponsible, unethical, sleazy and UNJUST!!

Thanks. right now the computer is fixed for US70. when i hv time, i'll open it up and see if i can figure it out how it was fixed. The shop suggested tht the computer wont last too long. This is such bad quality for HP... Sorry, i hv to do the following for other victims to find this easily:
(can some creative netizen bring this to the public light to pressure HP to do the ethical things??)

D630. LCD and external monitor does not display.


If its integrated and damaged then You would have to replace the mother bord (pricey)
have You tried reinstalling the video driver?

Alternative would be to get an external video card if rest of the mother board is ok
