    One more detail, the laptop start sometimes normal, and then shows this lines after 15 minutes or so and then they stay for a while.

    The problem was in thermal paste, fixed by cleaning the poor quality thermal past (that Sony used for this laptops) off the CPU and replace it with a new one.

First of all, do you have any warranty at all? If you do then save all the trouble as the place where you bought from can replace it for free.

If not try this:

Try to slightly twist the screen holding it from the top corners to see if that changes any thing, if it does then you need to check your screen's connector on both the motherboard and screen, if that's not the case, then you have internal screen connection (Screen main board) problem that is killing parts of your screen (dead pixels).

I highly suggest you let a professional look at before you attempt anything. Buy the screen off eBay for 80 dollars or less and have someone with enough experience to install it following proper installation procedure to insure the safety of your laptop's components.

Most profs install screens for about 160 and up. (screen+labor)

Hope that helps.

    Yes, I managed to fix that by tightening some screws that holds the screen on the body, Also the screen panel seems to need some tightening but I don't know how to..

Vertical lines

It sounds like dead pixels in the LCD display. the only way to get rid of the lines is to replace the Display unit in the laptop. This can be a very expensive repair so I'd check it in with an IT professional first.

Sounds like the cable needs reseating in the motherboard - if unsure about this a repair shop should be able to do this for you cheaply.

I have sony vaio notebook VGN-FS8900 with display problem. display showing vertical lines across, and not accepting display drivers such that resolution and color quality not changing.Laptop using nvidia...

It sounds like your video GPU may be burnt or have vertical artifacts. You can try to downgrade the video driver, or if you're tech-savy enough, you can underclock it slightly, and that should get rid of the lines. If you have any troubles, repost and i can try to help some more.

I was playing online games on my sony vaio. Suddenly I got blue lines on the screen and the laptop stopped responding. So I tried restarting the laptop but I get blue thin vertical lines before the laptop...

Blue thin lines before it boots will rule out an operating system or driver fault. So it would appear something in the machine has failed.
Do you have a VGA monitor you can connect to it and see whether it shows the fault? This will show that if the fault also shows on the external monitor, it is likely an electronic fault on the main board, whereas if it works on the external monitor but not on the built-in monitor, my guess would be the cable that goes from the main board up through the hinge of the screen into it, or a connector, or an actual fault with the LCD display.
Windows booting normally once the display drivers were disabled indicates to me that Windows is no longer detecting the faulty display and therefore boots normally - possibly pointing to failed electronics in some way. It could even be corrupt BIOS that controls the video or something along these lines, though that's unlikely.
Good luck, either way it sounds like it's off to a computer repair shop. Is it under warranty?

Lines on screen

The cable that plugs your monitor into your laptop may have come loose. Follow the link below and follow the directions and see if it gets you anywhere. First try to hook up a second monitor. when you plug in the monitor you will have to press Fn + F4 or something along those lines to get the display on both screens. If the lines show up on the second display then it is the computer that is messed up and you will have to replace it or take it to a pro to have this fixed.
