I have a sony viao vgn-ar270. The screen was pixellating so I restarted. Went to the 'safe boot' screen. Clicked on start windows normally. Splash screen had some strange lines running down in a striped pattern. Then went to blue screen of death and back to crash screen. I used safe mode and it boots. I am not sure what to even look for - suggestions?

try to restart your laptop in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING. once you are in safe mode with networking change power settings from power option in control panel. Try SYSTEM RESTORE. Still you face problem press F8 when you turn your laptop on. You will get advance options. Select LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION.

I need to know the pixels for a sony viao vgn-430d screen


You should be able to find the proper LCD screen, by the LCD screen size, whether it is a widescreen or not, and whether or not it's a matte finish.
I need the exact model number. The Vaio VGN-430d does me no good. Suggest you look on the bottom of the laptop. There may, or may not be a Service Tag.
Look for something like VGN-NR , and a number.
What you may see on the side of the LCD screen, or on the body of the laptop, is just part of the VGN series.
