Sony Vaio VGN-SZ440n11-Blank Screen

My two-month-old computer is already broken...I was watching full episodes online on and then all of a sudden, the screen freezes and the back righthand corner of the computer starts rapidly clicking. I powered off the computer by holding the power button. When I turned it back on, the computer was running but the screen didn't turn on. I tried removing the battery and running only on AC power. Nothing is working. It's been 24 hours and the screen still wont turn on. I have Vista Business. I have never dropped or spilled anything on the computer.

You have a warranty. You should contact the appropriate people. Do not try to fix this yourself. If you return the machine for service, ask them to get any data off of it that you need. It is possible that your drive has crashed.

I have been connecting my Sony Vaio VGN-FE21M for several months with the LG LCD monitor to watch TV while online. Then yesterday all of the sudden the laptop shows blank screen, but the LG monitor is...

I need to know what operating system you're using (like windows vista). However, it seems like the control has moved to the LG screen, and not laptop. You can set several options when connecting a monitor to a laptop - both screens are available, one screen is off and the other screen is off.

Please post your operating system so that I guide you how to change these settings.
