Question about Sony VIAO P4 PCV-RS712 3.0GHz 512MB 200GB DVD RW DVD BRAND PC Desktop
All time, i turned on my computer, then it just went BLACK-OUT or a while. i turn it back on, then my screen does not work anymore. the PC system is on, but the screen, have reccived no message. and it is just dead. the power is on, but i do not think the screen is working. i need to ask you why or what happened?
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.

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
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.
