First test if it is the screen by connecting to an external monitor, if the picture is good, the issue is with the screen or the VGA cable.

Remove the screen bezel (rubber stoppers cover the screws), ease it away from the laptop after checking that there are no other screws holding it in place. It will unsnap fairly easily but with gentle persuasion.
After that, undo the support hinge screws that hold the screen in place and gently let it move forward. Check the tightness of the 30 pin connector into the screen and refit if loose (should not be loose).

Reboot and see if the problem is still there, if it is, you need to replace the screen
COULD also be a faulty cable, but replacing the screen is the only real way to eliminate the screen being faulty. If it points to the cable after all, it will need replacing and with the same verison number as the original...

If the picture on an external monitor is as bad, then the problem is with the graphics on the motherboard. Could be signs of the chip beginning to fail, in which case repair or new motherboard needed

In the above link where it states in bold letters -
Service manuals for Sony VAIO laptops and notebooks,

,left-click on - Get it here - to the right of VGN-AR.

This Service Manual is in PDF file format. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name, (VGN-AR), it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

Not your laptop, but perhaps this will give more guidance, in removing and replacing the Keyboard,

Just follow the steps up to removing the Keyboard. These are listed just to give you more info on replacing a Keyboard, not disassembling the entire laptop.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

[ WOW, that Keyboard is expensive! Suggest you look around for a better deal. I just posted that example to give you info. Average price SHOULD be no more than $40 to $50. Ebay? ]

Upgrade your graphic video driver from here:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGN-AW330J/H

Select first the windows you are running 32 or 64 bit system.
Its in the video map and it is an nvidia driver.

If it does not help your screen has a defect or damaged
Replace the screen.

Hope this was helpfull.

What is the average price for the Sony Vaio VGN-AR230g?? what is the difference between that sony vaio and the Sony Vaio VGN-AW190? which would be more recommendable?


Briefly:-
The Sony AW models only came out in October 2008, whereas the AR series started back in early 2007.

There are a great many AR models, and you can judge their degree of sophistication by the last letters of the model numbers. As I remember these last letters are E, M, S and Z, E being pretty basic and Z most highly featured.

The S and Z models tend (but do check this!) to have higher screen resolutions, viz 1920 x 1280 or something of that sort, whereas E and M have fewer pixels. The hard disc sizes vary from about 300 to 640 GB, going up the scale, and also the graphics cards vary, the best possible (on the Z models) being NVidia 7600 or 8600 GT.

All the AR laptops are big, about 3.7 kg weight, with 17" screens. They all have 2 gigabytes of memory apart from the very latest S and Z models, summer 2008 onwards, which have 4 gigabytes.

ARs now (March 2009) are officially discontinued, but you may still find them on line. Prices range enormously, from about £600 to about £1600. They were very well reviewed in their time, though some people disliked the keyboard, which is rather small.

The AW series so far as I know includes only 2 models, one at about £1400 which is very similar to the Z series AR except for being quite a different shape - widescreen, 18.6 inches diagonal and abou 1000 x 1900 pixels - with a higher spec graphics card, NVidia 9600, and another which is similar but about £1000 dearer, because it has a partly solid state disk.

That information is the fruit of my own recent exploration of this topic - I ended by buying a Z series AR. Hope this helps!

You won't be able to see video if your LCD screen is cracked.

Connect a monitor to the VGA port , the hold the Fn key and hit F7.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
