Hi,
Sony vaios are very tempramental.
Did you drop or bang the machine, before this happened ?
There are a few suggestions.
1:) the screen catch mechanism is jammed.
Solution:- turn on laptop, using a small blunt screwdriver. where the laptop latch, goes into the laptop base. gently push the latch mechanism a few times, to see if it,s jamming.
2:) if the screen display shut off mechanism is under the actual laptop screen lid, push the small plunger, up down several times.
These are common likely causes.
3:) press and hold the power on button for 15-30 seconds, this is in case the system has gone into hibernate/sleep mode.
4:) ensure The battery is fully charged. And the laptop power supply is plugged in.
If none of the above work for you, you may need to take into a repair specialist.

Desktop screen


try booting in safe mode and see if the screen displays properly.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.



Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor shows the 1 inch black space then your video card might be going bad or you might have a virus infection. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok then your original monitor is bad.

When you first power on the computer does the monitor work fine?
can you boot into safe mode? - Click Here for step by step to boot into safe mode.
If the Monitor works in Safe mode or works when you first power on the computer then it could most likely be an issue with your Video Card.
Try testing the Monitor on the laptop to see if it gives you the same issue. If it doesn't then you know for sure it the Desktop. I would most likely say its the video card.
If it turns out to be the Desktop, post the model of the PC and I can help see what other options you have.

The l226wtq goes black


Try shining a flashlight on the screen, or without the flashlight, try to see if you can distinguish anything on the screen at all, if you do, the backlight is dead, or the monitor has an internal most likely unfixable problem.

Monitor not working


It may well be dead. Try testing the monitor on another working PC. Also try a working monitor on the problem PC. Then you will know whether it's the monitor or the PC graphics card that's faulty.

Black Screen


Look in the back of the Gateway where you currently have the video cable connected. If there are two connectors, (Side by Side) there than disconnect & re-connect to the other. Your display should come up. Don't be fooled. Most Pc's that have no display on their monitor is not a monitor problem but a computer problem.
