Sony Vaio Laptop LCD pixulates

I have a Sony Vaio laptop and the LCD display is very pixulated and the colors are separated out. Is the LCD itself bad and needs to be replaced? Or could there be another hardware problem that I could fix? I am very tech savvy and can replace the parts if necessary. I am just looking for the right direction to go in.

Thanks in Advance

    I ran dxdiag and it yielded no errors. I also went to sony.com and updated the driver to latest according to the Model#VGN-FS680. The laptop still had the same issues.
    when the laptop is docked it displays graphics on an external monitor fine..... The LCD screen still remains the same.

    I am just going to have the monitor replaced.

    Thanks for the help

Its a sony vaio right? does it have the latest video drivers installed? have you tried running dxdiag? try this ones first and see if there are errors found. if eveythings fine with the drivers and dxdiag. probable solution for the lcd is to replaced. check it out first and post your findings.

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 sony vaio vgn-nw320f was totally dead.i had pulled up the battery cause it could not log off.please help me.....


Most sony laptop power supplies have a power LED that indicates if the device is A) plugged in {ok it happens!}, or B) fried and not providing power to the laptop. Check this first. If the power supply is plugged in and the LED is on (usually green or red) then see if you have ANY lights on the laptop itself. Its possible that your LCD display went bad but that the laptop is otherwise running. You may see a power, hard drive or wireless network light on if the laptop works but the LCD went bad. You can also connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up to check the LCD.
I've also seen where the battery goes bad and it keeps the laptop from booting. Try removing the battery and power up (with the ac adapter plugged in) again.
If neither of these helps, you may be looking at some kind of internal short on the motherboard which is big money. Hopefully that isn't the case.
Hope this helps!!

I need to know how to install a laptop hinge on a sony vaio a690? Is it required that I remove the lcd when I attempt to install the hinge?


As the hinge is what binds the display assembly to the laptop itself, you will need to remove the display assembly in order to replace the hinge. However, if you are only replacing the hinge cover, then you don't have to remove the display assembly.

Sony du-42pz60 has colored bars on screen


1. unit seems to be in the "test" mode
2. some how it has defaulted to this mode.
3. Disconnect all device to the TV and then power unit on.
4. If tv turns on without color bars then a device connected is the culprit.
5. Try each device separately and see which has a colorbar displayed.
6. if the latter doesn't isolate then it is the unit itself and need a tech to look at the main board for video malfunction -- test

Sony Vaio Laptop LCD pixulates


If you cannot change the resolution greater that 640X480 and the color quality greater than 16 bit, then the video driver appears to be faulty or not installed.
Check the video driver in Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, the video driver.

LCD monitor has no display


It's possible you have a problem with either the LCD or with your system board or CPU. Plug an external monitor into your laptop and then boot it up. If you get a picture on the external monitor, the problem is your LCD. If you still get no picture, you likely have a bad system board or processor.

YES, if you are under mfg warranty from best buy or bought their service plan and it has not expired they will ship it for you. They will need your receipt or they can search for it. If this was not bought from best buy, contact who you bought it from or the mfg.
