Sony :: Brand New Vaio Z Screen

Jan 23, 2010

I just got a Vaio VGN-Z890 off the sonystyle website. As soon as i turned it on I saw a red screen with a pixelated windows symbol. When I got to the desktop screen it looks like there's a red tint covering the whole screen, kinda like someone put red cellophane over it. I thought it was the video card so I updated it from the drivers on the sony support website but I got the same result. I hooked it up to my 32" Samsung tv and it looked beautiful with the right colors. So this leads me to believe that it is a problem with the notebook's lcd. The funny thing is, if I go in and change the gamma and other display settings I can get the screen to change to a green or purple tint. I thought that a failing lcd screen could only be red?

-Also, although I am mechanically inclined, I'd rather let sony open up the laptop and check the gpu connection, lest they blame any problems on me in the future for tampering.

Sony :: How Can You Explain To Be A Reliable Brand For Vaio

Jun 10, 2009

I have been an avid HP user for quite some time in the recent years. Now graduated from HS, I'm off to the University in search of a reliable notebook. I have looked everywhere!
HP, Dell, Apple, Lenovo, Newegg, eBay, and now Sony. Out of all these, what makes Sony a brand I can truly consider to be my trustee for 4 more years?

Some questions to consider:Has the Sony brand kept up to its name? (i.e-build quality)Customer Support for the Vaio, how would you rate it? Are they quick, responsive, and ideal to the typical consumer who might experience problems from time to time?Updates, drivers, and firmware-are they constant?

By quick glance, Sony is the Apple's PC. The company is for style, easy user experience, and simplicity, all with the love for Windows. Ultimately, can you tell me if and why Sony is reliable to purchase from?

Sony :: Brand New Vaio Z 2010 128gb SSD RaidFailed

Apr 10, 2010

I know Raid 0 is not very reliable, but can it be so unreliable that it dies after sitting shut for a day.

The laptop battery had 90% charge.

This was my third boot which I made to create a backup disk. I turned it on last yesterday and when I turned it on again today this is what I see.

1 .So I am left without recovery disks what to do?

2. Can we change the SSD's to Intel?

3. I tried a JBOD and tried installing Vista 64bit and it worked although I did not go
ahead with the setup.

4. Are Jbod drives slower than RAID 0? If so by how much.

Sony :: Parts Of The Screen Have Low Screen Resolution One Brand New Laptop

Apr 18, 2010

I just bought a brand new Sony Vaio VPCF11M1E and I have the following problem:

Because in normal stand the screen is very small, I enlarged it to x150%. Everything becomes bigger, but the following parts are blurry and absolutely not sharp:

-Pop ups, of programs and of windows itself (like advanced settings of something and then a new windows pops up, that one is then totally blurry; you can read it, but it is not the good resolution)

-Google chrome (and with that, all the internet pages)

-The google chrome on the desktop is also very blurry, while all the others, are still sharp (after the enlargement by 150%)

I have tried everything (32 bits colours is on, cleartype is on). I also did a system restore to the first days I bought the laptop and then it was on 100% so the resolution was excellent, but then I put it on 150% and again, the parts I mentioned above, were blurry.

Dell :: Studio XPS 13 And 16 Screen Brand Survey

Jan 17, 2009

Dell uses a selection of display panels from different manufacturers on laptops, even if they are described by dell as being the exact same display when you ordered your laptop.

For example, if you were going to order an XPS M1530 with a WSXGA+ resolution, you have about a 75% chance of getting a Samsung screen, and a 25% chance of getting an LG screen.

(The samsung screen is usually very grainy, and the preferred LG screen has a great contrast ratio, is slightly brighter than the Samsung, and is perfectly clean with no grainyness). Dell pretty much builds your laptop with whatever screen they have left on the shelves.


The purpose of this survey is to find out which LCD panels are undesirable or have anything wrong with them, and which ones you should request when ordering your Studio XPS.

HP/Compaq :: Huge Crack Where The Screen Connects To The Laptop HDX16 Brand New Out Of Box

Dec 2, 2009

I recently had an HDX16 and tried out a DM3, but ended up returning the DM3 because I simply wanted a bigger and more powerful setup. Well, I had gone through 3 previous HDX16s because of various issues. Now I get one of the last ones they made (I got it about a week ago but was out of town for Thanksgiving.) Anyways, there's a huge crack in the plastic on the long roundish bar that connects the screen to the laptop. I don't know what to do. I can call, but they can't even send out another replacement, as the 16 doesn't exist anymore. To me the DV6/7/8 series isn't even comparable in my mind. What does everyone think I should do? I get the feeling they'll offer me say $50 which isn't worth the crack. I mean to me $200 is about where I'd say I'd be okay. But even then, I'll use it every day and think of the crack.....

Sony :: Brand New TT- OS Not Found

Feb 14, 2009

I've just received my VGN TTWN/B two days ago. It has Vista Business installed by default and I've been going through the guide page by page to ensure everything's just right as I set it up. It's just fab!

Tonight I opened the power icon on the tooltray when the machine was connected to the mains (window showed: connected. Not charging. 80% charged) and proceeded to the lid/button power functions. Here, I found four boxes, two for AC functionality and two for battery. All four boxes were set to 'sleep'. To experiment, I changed one - the AC lid function to 'hibernate'.

I then closed the lid and returned a while later. By now the screen was black, but the power indicator (on/off button) was still lit green. I attempted to restart using the return key. Nothing happened and several minutes later, I decided to hold in the power on/off button for 5 seconds to try to shut the machine down and restart.

It didn't shut down, and once more I repeated trying to unhibernate using the return key, except this time, up came the phrase: 'Operating system not found.' I used various keys and the same message came up again and again.

Now the machine has been sitting there, black screen and with this message. It's disconnected from the AC and the on/off is still lit green.

I have been tempted to remove the battery and replace it, and start again, but this is where I run out of talent. I don't want to do anything to the TT which will screw it up.

System restore discs were made at the very outset.

Lenovo X1 Carbon X Series ThinkPad :: Brand New Touch Blue Screen After Sleep?

May 3, 2013

I just got my new carbon touch thinkpad today, and I couldn't be happier, until I closed the lid and reopened it a couple of minutes later. The screen froze for a while and then I got a BSOD with the notice CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED. I hoped it would be just some coincidence, and updating my drivers and installing windows updates would solve it. So I did, and closed the lid again. After reopening it, I got the same error. So I figured I could just as well restore to my factory settings. Without luck. After updating everything for a second time, still no luck. I check the disk and did a memory check, but everything seems fine. The lenovo Solution center isn't reporting any issues either. I looked into the minidump created by the blue screen, and it seemed the process failing is called csrss.exe.

Sony :: Stuck Pixel On Brand New FHD VPCZ1

May 2, 2010

I try a lot of methods for fixing it..(software + tapping, massaging..) but it's there...

I'm noticed it a couple days after purchase.. A red dot is nearly center of the screen and especially to become visible on white background.. FullHD resolution is hide it because it's toooooo tiny.. But if you know it's there, damn.. it's there...

I'm think to change it.. But i'm worry about to another bigger issue on new unit.. Louder fan, uneven backlight lcd, build quality issues...etc.. I have a one change right.. It's not warranty procedure because one stuck pixel is not meet warranty conditions..

Sony :: Vaio FZ Screen

Sony Vaio FZ Screen

Overnight a problem with the screen on my Sony Vaio FZ has become apparent. A think multi colour bar had started to appear at the bottom of the screen. I am not entirely sure if the problem is related to the 8400GT graphics processor, I have had a preciously faulty one replaced which I hope reduces the likelihood that the graphics processor is the culprit. I am just going through now backing up my data in case the fault spreads further. My eye sight may not be sharp enough but it may have expanded.

Note that in the pictures attached it appears green but when I have something else up as wallpaper, or a program open, the colours change to reflect in some way what is on the rest of the screen. For example when I have word opinion the blue background appears black on the bar, the text area is a shade of grey. Also, my taskbar is not that thick. My available space on screen has not gone away as much as the fault bar suggests it should have, it is as though my screen has adjusted in some way.

Sony :: VAIO AW Screen's Buzzing!

Oct 25, 2009

I have Sony VAIO VGN-AW360J.
About two weeks ago I noticed something weird with the brightness regulation of the display. When I tried to change the brightness

(always set up to the maximum) to a lower degree using the keys (Fn F5) a high pitch noise can be heart coming from the screen (to be more exact -

from the lid of the laptop, below the VAIO logo), and it is very noticeable in a quieter environment. Continuing lowering the degrees of brightness would cause higher or less noise. The nosier setting is at 90% of brightness

Sony :: Vaio Z Screen That Would Dim And Comeback On Again

Sep 5, 2009

I purchased a Vaio Z about 2 weeks ago. Last night, I brought the notebook out of standby and after a few minutes of working with it, I noticed a vertical region on the right side of the screen that would dim and comeback on again, just like you see with florescent lights when they are faulty. There was no specific pattern to it, just random. I turned the notebook on and off, and the problem seems to be gone. I was wondering if anyone has ever had this problem before or know what it is.

Sony :: Water Under Vaio FW LCD Screen

Aug 19, 2009

I would like to know if there's a way to remove the liquid under my LCD screen.

At first there was a big circle with a diameter of 3 inches. then after leaving it idle for about 3 or 4 days, the circle shrinked with a diameter of 2 cm. after that, I left the computer alone for another 4 days and that 2cm circle is still there. i turned the laptop and viewed the screen at a 45 angle and i see one normal drop of water and many small drops in that one area.

should i wait until it dries out? or should i disassemble the screen?

- considering there's no air or anything in the LCD screen itself, i dont think the water will disappear anytime soon. possibly 2 or 4 months? lol =(

water came in contact with the SCREEN only, all other parts (keyboard, speakers, cpu, etc. are CLEAN)

Sony :: Vaio Z11 Screen Brightness

May 22, 2010

I just got a z11 and will be returning my macbook pro soon.

The only thing that is making me hesitant is the screen brightness of the z. With the plug in and full brightness, it's not that bright, at least NO WHERE NEAR as bright as the macbook pro with high res anti-glare. Is this normal?

How many of you Z owners find the screen brightness too low? Even at full, it feels dim.

Sony :: Laptop Screen- Vaio

Dec 10, 2009

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop. Its warranty ended 7th December. Phoned them to get it picked up and now they have it so any work should be covered under warranty.

There is a particle under the screen. I took a picture of it and emailed it to Sony who diagnosed it as dead pixels. They said they would repair it for free under warranty.

Now that they have the laptop they say there is a particle under the screen. They sent me a picture of it and the photo looks identical to what I sent them earlier which they diagnosed dead pixels.

Now they are saying it was accidental damage by me and want to charge to replace the screen (same price as I paid for the laptop).

I think that this is ridiculous and that they should repair it under warranty. They will not accept these two arguments:
1. If I damaged it then I would have had to have opened the screen which there should be evidence of.
2. If the particle got in some other way through a gap then it is a manufacturing flaw because there should be no way of a particle getting in there.

It noticed a small mark on the screen right where the screen folds down to the track pad. It seems the Back ridge of the track pad, has pushed onto the screen creating this mark.
