A part of the outer case my PCG-61411W Sony Vaio laptop is broken at the place of the hinge, how can I replace it ?

See if you can find a bottom case and lcd hinges on ebay.

Just put in your computer's make and model in the search box.

My Sony VAIO VGN-AR290G laptop cannot view another external screen. Originally, I closed the laptop lid on my charger and cracked the screen. Now the screen just shows white. I connected VGA cable to...

Hummmm.... are you sure your cable is good? Can you try connecting with another cable?...

Check the cable CONNECTORS and be sure NO pins are pushed back into the molded body. All should pins should be quite 'flush' with the outer connector metal frame.

Does your display work if you connect your cable and monitor to another system?

Gee I'm trying to envision a LCD display and it's associated electronics AND your SVGA connector?... I mean I know they both process video, but they should be independent of each other?

I have a newer TOSHIBA that had a LCD so trashed it kept dumping junk from the display... So I cut the display hinges OFF and cut the supporting cables to it too... hoping for no shorts!

That system is still working GREAT ~ with a external monitor... and no Wi-Fi and sorry that does not really help you.

Dear sir i have sony laptop pcg-81114l when i turned on my laptop there is no display on laptop screen or external monitor i have been testing ram lcd and processor these things are ok but no display plz...

In my opinion it sounds like the onboard video chipset has failed. That would explain why neither LCD nor outside monitor are showing any output. This is especially likely if you are not even getting the initial logo or Power on Self Test showing on the screens when you first turn on the laptop.

My laptop comes on, and the screen stays blank, (black ) nothing, I tried hooking up an external monitor but it does nothing also, could the invertor be the cause? Unit is a Sony VAIO PCG-TR3A

If the invertor was faulty you would get a picture on the external monitor, assuming that the external monitor and the laptop was configured to work. Check the Fn key and F5 at the same time. That should switch between internal/ external or both displays.

Hope that helps.

My Sony Vaio PCG-K23's LCD screen shows thin red, green & blue streaks running vertically. When I hook up an external monitor, it's still streaky, but I can make out the icons and see the mouse...

SInce the same problem appears on the external monitor, you have a failing video card/controller chip on the motherboard. Had the problem been absent from the external monitor you would merely need to replace the LCD panel and the Screen Inverter.

Your next move will of necessity be to count the cost of a motherboard repair service where (1) they fix the board at the individual coponent level, (2) you replace the entire motherboard or (3), your laptop has a discrete (not soldered to the board) video card which can be replaced.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this is a serious hardware problem and not a simple driver update.

Good Luck

LCD turns white.

probably failure in the LCD controller IC in the lcd controller board. that no signal was sent out to the lcd driver ic thus you could only see white display. A replacement of LCD panel is the best solution. best regards

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.
