Try the following:
Sometimes when you press and hold the corners of the LCD area (not on the LCD itself, but on the frame), and see if it gives you a picture (or at least flickers when you do so).
My opinion is that your LCD could need rewiring or replacing.

Is the laptop getting very hot if so then the laptop is turning off because of this. You will need to get it cleaned out around the fan, if you are still getting the same problem after this you could ues one of these USB cooling fan stands. i use one with my acer6530g when i am working with it for hours at one time. hope this helps.

Yes, the VAIO model VGNSZ220/B is shipped with two Video Cards. Original - nVIDIA GeForce Go 7400 Graphics Controller Driver and Intel 945GM Express Video Driver. As far as I'm aware, the Speed mode uses nVidia and Stamina mode uses Intel Video driver. As you said, you already tried performing a system recovery using the recovery discs, it is clear that the issue is hardware related. There is a button on the Computer to change the modes among Stamina and Speed. You may try pressing that button and then try to boot the computer. But based in the information you have provided, the issue seems to be with both the Video card or the motherboard.
As you tried connect the notebook to a external display and it didn't work. The best option is to get the unit serviced. Either you may contact your favorite technician or you can contact the Sony service center at:
