If you get the problem on startup and externally then it's the GPU. You can fix it by reflowing the GPU on the motherboard, but it's NOT easy for the average user.

You might be able to find someone on Craigslist who can do it. I'd pay no more than $50 for someone to do it, but depending on where you live the price could be higher.

One thing you could try is to update the bios firmware. It's definately worth a shot.

Let me know what happens.

I have a black frame around the tv picture.


Go into Settings and play with 'Aspect Ratio'. Remember though, not all shows are made in Widescreen format, and certainly nothing made older than 10 years ago.

Monitor is only showing vertical/horizontal gray/white screen


Your video card has fried unfortunately. If you are familiar with the internal workings of a PC you can open it up and check the power cells on the video card itself, they will usually show signs of damage such as cracking etc. I would have a qualified professional take a look at it. I would recommend www.tigerdirect.com as a starting place for finding a new one

I have a sony VGN-AR41M laptop is just 2 years old & still in excellent condition. i got a vertical lines problem.My screen is full of colour lining from top to bottom as i start the laptop and...


Move the screen around while on, do the lines disappear when you hold it in certain positions? If so, your LCD needs to be replace. If the lines don't disappear when bending the screen, it could be a broken motherboard as well. Youcan try to open the laptop and check the dc connection. There is a Laptop Repair Guide that shows you how to take apart a laptop, the sony may be made in a similar way. Sony Repair NYC

you may have a slightly damaged power supply...although swapping the main supply chassis may solve, I have seen front panels that have an additional supply section. look on the front panel board for any TP's and probe with an O-scope. if you see a TP that may also show (+ xx V), where xx is a numerical value-may be one x only, the scope must show a straight horizontal line that is shifted vertically away from its normal (ground) position. that confirms a DC value present. then determine the DC value of the shift. Another possibility, since you invested, is to search ebay for a second unit for part swapping. look for as-is units.
