Sony Vaio Laptop LCD screen pixulates

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop and the colors on the LCD screen are separated out and has a very pixelated (little squares on the screen). Does this mean that the LCD screen is bad and needs to be replaced?

    Thanks So Much....
    If its not under warranty then is it worth it to replace the LCD. I can do the work myself after I buy the parts.

    Thanks Again......

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.

    It is not going to be cost effecient to replace the screen. Most screens start at 300$ I say if you like the laptop go for it, but now adays you can get a new one starting at 500, if your lucky you can get them onsale in the 400$. Price the screen first. They can be tricky to install....

Fuzzy line going right down right side of Sony Laptop VGN-CS26g

The pixels inside of the LCD are going bad. Your screen is going to need to be replaced. When pixels in screens go bad it usually turns colors or gets fuzzy after it heats up.

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

I need to know the pixels for a sony viao vgn-430d screen

You should be able to find the proper LCD screen, by the LCD screen size, whether it is a widescreen or not, and whether or not it's a matte finish.
I need the exact model number. The Vaio VGN-430d does me no good. Suggest you look on the bottom of the laptop. There may, or may not be a Service Tag.
Look for something like VGN-NR , and a number.
What you may see on the side of the LCD screen, or on the body of the laptop, is just part of the VGN series.

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.
