Question about Sony VAIO PCG-K23 Notebook
Hi! I have a sony vaio PCG-K23. When I turn it on the screen appear black with some spots of light. I have to turned the computer off hours and sometimes a day or 2 to get it work. Also when the screen work and I had it on for a long time, if I had to restart the computer for any reason the screen does the same; black with light spots. I plugged an external monitor and continue working. How can I know if its the screen panel, the inverter; or the video card, someone told me. Please need help as soon as posible.
Hi there, I have the same laptop and issue as you do. Replacing the invertor will not fix the problem. If you see a solid black screen or the screen is very dim then the invertor would need replacing. Based on your pictures it looks to be the lcd screen that needs to be looked at. Bring it to a technician as the screen may not need to be replaced but just re-calibrated.

It is definitely the screen or the inverter. Usually the screen and inverter come as one piece. I would check with the manufacturer. Unfortunately for you, the LCD is one of the most expensive parts to replace on a laptop.
Just the simple fact of you mentioning that it works fine with an external monitor tells me that its not the video card. If it was the video card, you would see the exact same thing happening on your external monitor as well.
Hope this helps!
