Question about Sony VAIO FRV37 Notebook

1 Answer

Video problem....... Hello, I finally got my pcg frv37 to boot up and found that the cpu was not secure and now I have no video. I have another pcg frv37 and plugged the monitor in to that one and everything is fine. I checked that the ram was seated properly and done this many times thinking that was the problem but still no video. I also clicked the reset button on the underside of the laptop and was wondering if this is why I have no video. Should I reinstall the video driver and if so how would I do this? Thanks

    No, I don't see any video at all, no logo's no nothing. I tried all the function keys and also tried hooking up to an external monitor and still nothing. Like I said in my previous post the laptop monitor is working when hooked up to another pcg frv37. Unless I am not using the function keys correctly what do you propose I use for the function key and how do I do that?

    I attached a seperate monitor to my Sony pcg-frv32 and both screens worked well. I went to control panel/display and tried to fix the laptop screen so it didn't display. I was sucessful in only having it show a green square. Not satisfied I tried to make it dark and I lost display in both screens. I tried the recovery disk and nothing happens. It seems that the computer is still working, just not displaying......Help!

Do you see video at any time on the screen? Like when the VAIO logo appears?

It may be that you need to use a function key to return the view from an external screen to your laptop's screen.

try to boot up on safe mode. If successful, you may the wrong video card settings or driver. Unistall ALL video drivers and re-set the screen resolution and colors to 800 x 400 and 16 million respectively. then, restart and let boot normally

Hello, SONy Pcg-FRV37,Power problems


Clean the metal contacts on the Battery and in the compartment. Then, reset the BIOS to its default settings.
Next, plug in the AC Adaptor to charge the Battery.

If the issue persists then the problem may be related to the power circuitry.

Screen is white


You could have a video controller problem or a LCD screen problem, what you are seeing is the backlighting but no video information.
To check if you have a video problem, connect an external monitor to your laptop and bootup your laptop, if you see Windows booting up the external monitor then the video controller is OK, and your problem is the LCD screen or the video cable connection on the motherboard (may need reseating).
If you cannot fix the LCD screen then use your laptop with an external monitor.

Pcg-xg28 no display


Either the video card is bad, or the memory is bad. Replace the memory first to see if that fixes the problem. Also, if capable, reseat the CPU, which is located beneath the Keyboard.
