Hi tahseen_huss. If you are sure it's the graphics card and not the monitor. It could be expensive to replase because it's on the motherboard and you can't replace it. You will need to replace the whole motherboard. Prices could range from $350 to $600 just parts, you will need to add the labor. So it's up to you. I hope this helps and don't forget to rate and write positive feedback for our free support today. Thank you :D

This may come too late to help, but I had problems with the graphics card and it turned out to be a known problem with the Nvidia graphics card. Sony will fix for free as per this link embedded in their support website (in the UK) http://genesis.sony-europe.com/instranet/ccil_sony/selfservice/search.jsp?DocId=35880&l=en_GB&m=VGN-FZ21J
Hope this helps someone

From the looks of things after searching Google, it looks like Sony has admitted that there is a factory issue with that laptop and that video board. Contact Sony for a factory repair.

1 LONG BEEP 2 SHORT BEEPS


Does anything ever post to the screen when you press the power button? if not, it's your video card. The links below are for 1 long and 2 short and they say it's the video card. I've heard that Sony extended the warranty on some models so you might want to go to their website and check yours or in a google search type: Sony GPU Extended Warranty. I did and I see they extended it from one to three years. They have the faulty Nvidia Graphics Card which was a major problem for many manufacturers.

I have sony vaio VGN-CS12GH so can i use graphic card in my laptop.


The graphics circuitry is integrated into the motherboard in a laptop and you can't install a different card. If you are looking for a way to improve graphic performance, your only option is to download the latest video drivers from either the computer manufacturer or video chipset makers' websites, and see if any new capabilities have been added.
