Question about Sony VAIO PCG-K25 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-K25 and currently when I access the web or any kind of graphics related application my screen freezes and othe times I get the BSOD. Thinking that a new install of XP would fix it was a mistake. After researching the web I found out that others that experienced the same issues with their VAIO resolved the issue by updating the BIOS. Do you recommend the same and if so then where can I get the drivers for it? Thanks in advance.

Put model number in and see if yours is affected.

Hello
These symptoms are not the inverter problem, What can you do if the laptop LCD screen turned completely white? From my experience I can tell that this problem may be related to the following: 1. Loose connection between the video cable and the LCD screen. 2. Defective LCD screen. 3. Defective motherboard (I assume the graphics card is integrated into the motherboard).
Check these by yourself or get assistance from sony support.
Good Luck

Hi,

This laptop has its own graphics card that doesn't rely on system memory for the graphics.

There should be no reason why its not detecting all 1GB of ram that you have installed.

Open the ram cover and make sure that you have clipped the ram into place properly.


Regards.

My Sony Vaio PCG-K25 wont gp pass the black screen. I hear the fan and the power is on but the screen remains black. I took the battery out and had it powered through the chord. Still now working. Please...


Hello.

Either you have a memory issue or operating system problem.

First, try reseating (removing and reinserting) your memory (try one module at a time to test).

If still a problem, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

If still a problem, the last choices are Factory Restore and reinstall. Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.

When i turn on my sony vaio pcg-k25 it will go to the start it will say the logo then goes to a baclk screen with a dash then goes comptele balck?


I think i know the problem - your pc is trying to display on an external monitor but im guessing you dont have one. If this is the problem simply press Fn and F5 at the same time on your keyoard. Sometime you may have to press it multiple times.

Thanks

Hello, please when i put no my sony vaio notebook, the colors are mixed on my screen, i have changed the screen and the screen cable but the problem is still there


Try taking out one ram stick at a time in between boots. It sounds like you make a bad stick of ram and that is causing video issues. Just a thought.
