Sony vaio tr3a screen is black, but safemode lettering shows when I reboot with f 8 held down so I know the monitor is working but when I choose safemode and the computer tries to get into windows...


Hi ponotoc2,
On my acer I have some F buttons with little symbols on, I know that if I press FN + F6 it will switch my laptop screen on and off, I also can use FN + F5 to swap between monitors.
These could be different on a sony though and I can't remember what F numbers you need to press, I've seen some people say FN + F4 but im not 100% sure on this..
The symbol you should be looking for could look like 2 boxes one dark one and one coloured to simulate brightness.
I hope this helps
Myke

Battery or Screen problem


Solution? - not sure yet but having read solution by Hector_ahab, tried various F() buttons in conjunction with Fn button. Pressing Fn with F6 switches between black and normal screen on my Acer Aspire 5920. Fingers crossed!

Power Light on but screen black


Try powering up with no battery connected. If that works then the battery may be faulty or too old.

Try Screen switch function to switch from Internal screen to External monitor to Both.
Normally FN + F4 (on Compaq or FN + F7 on Lenovo check the Function symbols on your Keyboard: allow few seconds after command to refresh configuration.
try Safe mode also. to check if display shows in VGA format.
