Has any one purchased a Pearl White laptop and noticed the edges of the top of the computer are streaked with grey?

    The discoloration is under the shine and appears to be a manufacturers defect ... possibly using the Pearl White is not the best color selection ...

Yes ive had my white laptop for just over a year after abt 4 mnths after id got it i noticed the top of my laptop was turning grey so i contacted sony and sent my laptop back to them but after a wk they phoned me to say that they had checked my laptop and they couldnt find any fault so it must have been me that had caused the makes and if i wanted to replace the case of my laptop it would cost me £210 even tho my laptop was still in warranty.......andrea

How can I safely clean out the dust inside of Sony Vaio Laptop?


You would need to open up the computer and clean it with a vacuum. If you don't know about how to do that, then I suggest that you get it serviced by a computer technician. If you do that yourself, you might just mess up everything. A technician fee is more affordable than a new computer.

Why does laptop cursor freeze and screen turn white?


Have you ever had the inside of the laptop cleaned out?

If not this needs to be done. If it has been a longtime, this needs to be done also.

What is the model number of the Sony VAIO?
Bottom of laptop.

PERHAPS I can find a Service Manual, and/or pictorial disassembly information. Then we will see if you wish to perform this procedure.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist. (Sorry Gort!)

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

How much the price of vaio sonny lop top thanks a lot.


I'm glad to provide the price of the VAIO Notebook. Please click hear to view the price of the Notebook.

However, I have seen the same model with white color with a little low price. The only difference between E/P and E/W is it's color and P refers to Pink and W Refers to White.
Click hear to view the price of the E/W from Sony itself.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

I dropped my laptop, Vaio VGN-NR185E, and the screen is turning blue with the white colors, so if there's a blank page it's blue instead of white, I believe it's the inverter or maybe a loose wire, What do...


If the unit was dropped, it could be that a wire /cable came loose,but it most likely is the LCD screen. Was the unit dropped on one edge of the unit or did it land flat?

on edge: probably the LCD screen
flat: loose cable or inverter

Best guess....without seeing unit.
