Question about Sony VAIO VGC-V517G PC Desktop

1 Answer

Display Problem My display recently has gone very pixelated. The color gradation is now not smooth at all...for instance, the windows bar at the bottom of the screen no longer looks rounded, but instead has very distinct color lines on it. I have tried the following: - Changing the screen resolution and color quality - Re-installing the graphics card driver Nothing has worked. What is even more wierd about this is that the screen will sometimes randomly pop back into proper resolution...but it usually only lasts 5 minutes or so. Because of how this model is built all into one unit, I haven't had the guts to open the machine up. Any thoughts?

First things is to see if the problem is

  1. memory related(these all in one units have a problem that way.)
  2. Run everesthome and update chipset<NORTHBRIDGE>Google the northbridge for updates.
  3. nVidia GeForce FX Go5700 problem.Make sure all updates for graphic drivers have been installed, then attach an external monitor, the unit should support svga/dvi/s-video. Your graphics card has 128MB dedicated so if the external display responds the same way as internal monitor it's the video card or chipset.

Principle of lcd


Liquid Crystal Display - LCD
There is a Flo recent light that shines behind the screen. This light is what passes through the window or LCD when the shades are open or partly opened.
Think of each colored individual LCD (pixel) as a Window Shade. You have pixels that are made up of 1-red, 1- green and 1-blue light shade.
Your main control board will tell each light shade how much/far to open each colored light shade so it will make the color it needs to.
If the shades are closed (black) if the shades are all open (white)
Hope this helps.

What is the display resolution you have set in your display properties? For this monitor it should be set to 1280x1024 pixels, which should give you proper screen geometry.
