Question about Sony VAIO VGN-S170 PC Notebook
Have you tried connecting it to an external monitor? Are you sure the heatsink fan is not defective? If the screen works on an external monitor you know the video card is good. As long as the cable is plugged into the motherboard to provide power for the heatsink then it's either a bad heatsink fan or the motherboard connector for the heatsink is bad. My money is on the heatsink fan if you can get video from an external monitor.
