Question about Sony VAIO GRX550 Notebook

1 Answer

Sth video related?


I am having some graphics problem with a Sony Vaio PCG-GRX550 laptop lately. Unfortunately I dropped it on a table (actually one end was in contact with the tabletop & the other end was hardly 6 inches above the top of the table). I suspect that some chip or connector has been loosened (providing almost no connection) - what’s your opinion on this one. If my assumption is correct then please let me know the solution (detailed). Even if I am wrong, let me know what to do. I am attaching (to: some screenshots for you with this message. Thanks a lot.

I have a Sony VAIO PCG-K25 Notebook Problem. When I Push the Power on Button, A flickering white screen comes up. The system goes throught boot up just fine but the LCD screen remains white. When hooked...

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

I need a video card for a sony vaio pcg-3a1l. I have display problems when it gets hot later the display works fine. I opened the laptop to clean it- it wasn't that bad. I would like to replace the video...

The graphics cards are actually integrated onto the motherboard and are unfortunately not inter-changeable like desktops. Your next option would be to purchase a new/working motherboard. Good luck!

go to the following website, scroll down and download mobility modder. you will also need to download the lates catalyst software from ati don't worry that it isn't for your graphics card because mobility modder will change the files. finally follow all the instructions on the dh modder webpage where you downloaded it from and you can't go wrong. i used to have a sony vaio and i couldn't beleive how sony supports their customers after sale. they haven't and probably never will release a driver for these graphics cards. Shame on Sony!

I would like to replace the hard drive in my Vaio PCG-6F1L notebook and can not figure out how to open the case. there is one release I am missing. Bruce

Usually there is a side or a bottom part of the case where you can pop the hard drive out. My best advice is to refer to a manual or sony directly.
