I have a VAIO PCV-W700G. I turn it on and it shows the windows logo and then it blacks out. I try to go into the BIOS by hitting F2 and it will go into the BIOS and show the screen for about 3 seconds but then it blacks out there too. The screen won't stay on long enough to go into windows or if it does you cannot tell it is in Windows. ...and I cannot check the settings in the BIOS because it will show the BIOS screen for about 3 seconds also and then it blacks out and you get a black screen.

I might advise you to check the peripheral device inside of the computer if properly inserted to the slots. or reload the operating system of the computer. Memory Dump is something that is not working properly on the computer.

Also try booting using KNoppix or Ubuntu, make sure u set to boot from a CD in the BIOS. If Ubuntu or knoppix boot's you'll know it's the Hard disk, if they don't, it may be the RAM,
I have a PCV-W20 and I had the issues with the flickering screen and
blackouts. After reading a few postings i discovered the issue was a
faulty CCFL. There are two in this unit. I did not know that when I
ordered just one. When it arrived I had already taken the unit apart
and was ready to replace the lamp. After soldering the connections the

it has something to do with the light escaping from the side. I'm not
