Please help i have a sony vaio vgn cs 290 laptop, recently i noticed a flickering thin line on my laptop screen base my laptop product ID is: 00426-oem-8992662-00400 thanks


Might need new LCD or the video chip on mother board is starting to fail. Connect it to a external monitor and if the line does not a appear in the ext monitor then its the LCD on the laptop. But if the line is still on the ext monitor as well then the video chip on the motherboard is bad. You will have to replace the motherboard or just get a new laptop, all depends of the age of the laptop.

That sounds like you require a new/replacement screen.
Check your date of purchase with a warranty repair in mind.
