Need to update protected display drivers

Hi, I have a Sony Vaio Laptop VGN-FS315S, and am trying to get the display drivers to work clearly on an LG 19" wide screen monitor - Sony have own labelled and protected the display drivers, so I can't use the updated NVDIA branded drivers - any tips? Thanks

Sony vaio laptop half screen black on the right


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 Hope this helps.

I have Sony Vaio VGN-FZ15G motherboard working but have no display


First step is to hook it to an external monitor. If the monitor has signal, then you should be able to re-seat the video cable on the system board. If not, then something internal, like the motherboard, is defective.

My Sony Vaio VGN NW225F laptop won't start up.


First thinkg I'd do is to connect an external monitor to the laptop to see if you can get an image, any image, during booting. If you can't see anything, either using the laptop's screen or external monitor, then you have a hardware failure in the laptop that's probably beyond the abilities of a novice to repair. Get somebody who knows about how to clear the CMOS of the laptop.

I have been connecting my Sony Vaio VGN-FE21M for several months with the LG LCD monitor to watch TV while online. Then yesterday all of the sudden the laptop shows blank screen, but the LG monitor is...


I need to know what operating system you're using (like windows vista). However, it seems like the control has moved to the LG screen, and not laptop. You can set several options when connecting a monitor to a laptop - both screens are available, one screen is off and the other screen is off.

Please post your operating system so that I guide you how to change these settings.

Sony Vaio VGN-Cr220e "Blurry colored lines all over pc screen"


that is a faulty data cable from the system board to the back of the lcd screen. you can try reattaching the cable yourself, or replacing the cable with a new one. You can use an external monitor and it should be very clear. That means the issue is not the system itself, but rather, the cable that connects the screen to the board.

My sony notebook working but the screen went all white


Hi elibert, do the following: first connect your notebook pc to a regular monitor and use the function key(fn) fey on your keyboard to toggle between the monitor, the laptop screen & both monitor and laptop screen. If images display on the monitor, you likely have a display problem.First resit the LCD panel & then the video inverter card (video card).If problem persists, try replacing the relatively cheaper video inverter card b4 replacing the more expensive LCD panel altogether.Do this if you are a pc support technician else,i'll recommend you take it to an experienced technician or an authorized service centre.Cheers!
