Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FE660G Notebook

I need a video card for a sony vaio pcg-3a1l. I have display problems when it gets hot later the display works fine. I opened the laptop to clean it- it wasn't that bad. I would like to replace the video card although I wasn't able to tell which card it was the video card. Thanks for any help in solving my problem.

Hi tom4ward

Video card in a notebook is integrated you cannot change it.
Try to update your video card driver if it boots you to O.S
Check also your memory. try it on a different notebook if its working, if its not then its your memory is defective if not,
the motherboard or video card is the issue.

Hopefully it helps,
Thanks

The graphics cards are actually integrated onto the motherboard and are unfortunately not inter-changeable like desktops. Your next option would be to purchase a new/working motherboard. Good luck!

Hook a spare monitor to the video output of the laptop, if picture okay! the LCD panel display is defective and most be replaced. But if symptom is the same on both screens it indicates a bad Video Graphic Card normally built into the motherboard.

My laptop ( sony viao laptop) fell and now once turned on I have a black screen all lights and sounds are good. Could this be a led disconnect problem or a video card situation. What type of video card...


Unlikely to be a vga cable loose, but you can check by removing the switch panel cover and the screen to check it is still firmly housed.

test the laptop first in an external monitor, if you get an image, then the graphics chip is still ok

This then points to the screen, may appear undamaged, closer inspection with a torch, shone through the back of it will show any cracks you do not see straight away.

If the screen will not light up, fault is probably with a damaged backlight or inverter, you are then looking at a new (or 2nd hand) screen
