Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FS980 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen issues I think that there is something wrong with my video card. I am getting two solid grey to whitish lines throughout the screen. One line is towards the top and the other is close to the middle of the screen. I plugged another monitor into this laptop and there was no lines. What could be causing this. Thanks Sean

    If the external monitor has a perfert image the the fault is the LCD screen.

    If this is the case let me know and I can give you a fix.

It's not the vedeo card, it's the LCD issue and will need to be replaced. You can order a replacement from ebay and unscrew the frame and replace the inside screen, you may need a manual to do this, contact your Laptop company for manual to replace LCD inside the LCD frame.

Why are there vertical interference lines (coloured) on viewing panel and on photos?


if you are getting lines on screen and photo then there is probably something wrong with the sensor.
If it was just the screen its dead pixels in the screen. Unlikely to be a foreign body, eg hair or dust, inside as there is no way to open this camera up like a dslr.
to test this just take a photo of a plain grey card, and check the result.

From what you are describing it sounds like there is an issue with the video card or the connection from the card to the monitor.

Try:

1. Checking the cable going to the Monitor. Try another cable if you have one.
2. After powering off the computer and remove and re-seat the video card.
3. Does the video card have a fan? Is it spinning? - overheating could be an issue. Check for dust on the fan as well.
4. Do you have a spare card you can use to test?

It could also be an issue with your motherboard, this would probably need to be replaced.

My screen is grey with multi colored lines. If I hook up an external monitor I can run in safe mode but the laptop screen is blank, Possibly video board?


it could be a video board. but the only for sure way to find out is if the screen is grey with multi colored lines during the boot. If it only does it after windows starts then it is probably either a driver issue or the wrong resolution ( which i doubt). If it does it during the boot then i would have to say its the video card and i would try to maybe see if its not just the lcd itself. hope it helps let me know if u need more help

Dell Inspiron Screen Shake


sorry, can't tell you "no cost fix".

Either you've got a motherboard-screen cable failure(harsh, but not too bad) or you're
video card is fritzing. The green/grey line usually indicated a line break in a data line of the monitor cable. The fuzzy shaking is an indication that one of the sync signals may also be compromised.

To eliminate the video card as the problem... plug a monitor into the external video port, and see if the error is ghosted there.


If this doesn't work, Dell actually has some pretty good tools for you to use in troubleshooting it for yourself. The troubleshooter page begins here. There is a good video of using dell's built-in-to-laptops LCD screen test utility here.

Hope it helps you.

My Ibm Laptop r51 has a vertical lines on the screen


Our service have 3 pcs of IBM r51 note. All of them has the same problem with the display (vertical lines). When I changed the LCD panel itself, I found that the source of the problem is the panel, not the video card, not the wireing... You only need to drop out the old LCD panel and get a new one. You cannot repair the wrong panel...

Solid line completly across screen, monitor is brand new


Your comp's video card refresh rate (in Hertz, abbreviated Hz) may not be totally compatible with the monitor. Check the properties of your video card, and change the refresh rate (you may have to look around for it) to 60 Hz. This is a pretty standard refresh rate that works with just about every monitor. If it's already there, I'm afraid someone else will have to try and help!

Hope this helps, and please rate my answer, good OR bad.

Good luck!
