No display on my sony vaio :-(

Hi all I'm new here, I hope this is the right place
i was given an old sony vaio pcg-fx101 with win ME - Millenium Edition: on.
the problem i am having at the moment is there is no display just black, the backing lights come on but thats it, if i plug in a external Monitor it all works
is there a switch display mode button ??? ( i have no manual)
also the cmos battery is dead and i also think the keyboard is not working right can that affect the screen display in any way.

Re: no display on my sony vaio :-(

Ok " try going into control panel , find monitor and click on it
go into advanced setting and see if you can reset it.

also : there is a thin cable that runs from the computer to the screen , it may have to be replaced if worn or broken.

Can you hard reset bios on sony pcg-k115s?

Find and fix errors in your system BIOS
BIOS Patcher can find and fix errors in your system BIOS (only AWARD BIOS for now) and also it can add or open new features, i.e. some features that your BIOS has but they are closed by manufacturer of your motherboard. It scans rom file. If it finds any known errors it fixes the errors. If it finds any closed features it opens it. hope this helps
