Has anyone else noticed marks on their screen caused by the ridge that sits just above the trackpad?
I always ensure that the screen is against a folder or other flat surface in my bag so that it is protected from pressure. I have previously had screen damage to other laptops caused by keyboards and parts of the inner surface rubing against the screen when the laptop is closed.
In the last few months I have seen marks on my Z11's screen in the form of a line across the screen 2/3 of the way up where the ridge between the trackpad and keyboard occasionally presses against the screen but they had always wiped off. Yesterday I went to wipe them off and it seems as though thay are permanent
On a cheap laptop bad design like this is acceptable but on something this expensive it really isn't OK!! Especially when they market the screen as being resistant to marks...
I have noticed some problems with my Screen, its like a faint line and a few dots in the top middle of the screen, it looks like its been caused by the keyboard when the lid is shut. It not a scratch but i think more marks than anything, tried cleaning but still no luck ?
Okay so i probaly have the weirdest problem ever with this laptop, so the issue started when the display stopped working properly and would only work at a certain angle or when u would apply slight pressure on a certain part of the screen, faulty monitor correct?wrong. When i uninstalled the intel gpu drivers and reverted back to the standard microsoft display adapter all these problems disappeared, screen would work at all angles and the display would have no issues, so that sums out the possibility of the monitor being faulty. The display starts having these issues everytime the intel display drivers are installed, it just blows my mind how this is even a thing. The screen flickers twice and turns off after windows is done booting when the intel drivers are installed and works perfectly without them.
I am considering some laptops and the sony vaio is one of them. I have heard great things about the screen but it is glossy, something I have sworn off all these years. I have seeing reflections on my screen. how the anti-reflective screen performs?
I have had my Dell Inspiron 5110N for just over 15 months and it has worked perfectly in that time. In the last week however it has started to crash unexpectedly. At first it just wouldn't work when I opened it.. And I hadn't a clue why. It didn't work for several days. I took the battery out and cleared out any dust and it then worked. However it continued to crash and I noticed that it was when I lifted the laptop up and then put it down again.. Any pressure on the bottom and it seemed to crash completely. I presume there is a loose connection somewhere. What the issue could be?
This machine was not dropped or damaged in any manner to cause this. Last couple of weeks when I open the LCD lid past 90 degrees upright, the LCD screen letters of words turn fuzzy and page colors change.
For example, if I push gently back on the LCD lid of my right now as I type here on this forum page, the white background of this web page turns 2 shades of pink with what looks like large square-like pink pixels. When I let up on the pressure, and the screen returns forward to 85 degress upright, the LCD screen colors of this web page go back to normal -- white is white and the image is sharp.
It is the entire page -- no pressure spots or issue limited to around the edges, its the whole screen that is affected.
LCD going bad or something else? This is definitely related to the angle of the lid and the issue is both position and pressure sensitive.
i used a 100% cotton cloth and some warm water to clean my LCD. Now I have streak marks and dont now how to get them off. I think its 'runoff' cotton from the cloth. I have a bottle of Isontpoyl (wrong spelloing sorry) alcohol but havent used it. Was wondering how you guys manage to keep it streak free?
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.
I have a Inspiron E1705 GO 7900 GS graphics card Intel Core 2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz Vista 32 bit
Ok so here is the deal, I can't overclock my card with atitool...I try running it as administrator, everything, and it wont run properly for me. Anyways can you give me some ideas to improve this free? Or help with Atitool.
After fooling around with various websites and downloading multiple versions. I got it to work....i got the core overclocked to 570...and every time i click the (+) button to up the memory, my computer freezes for maybey 2 seconds tops, and it doesnt budge at all.....
i have had my Studio XPS 16 for about 6 months now. Love it, its got the Edge to Edge RGB display 1920x1080. Looks good. I am wanting to know if anyone is having an issue where the screen is getting SCUFFED? Mine appears to be scuffed exactly where the keys touch the screen when closed. for instance the power button has WORN a scuffed up area that matches up exactly when the lid is closed. also the SPACE BAR, INSER,PRINTSCR, DEL keys. has anyone else experienced? Its almost like the keys stick up a little when the lid is closed and scuffing the screen
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
I have a Sony FS VGN-FS640 Vaio laptop and when i boot the laptop all i see is the Vaio logo and then the screen goes blank nothing happens! how can i bring the windows back? This laptop runs winodws XP.
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.
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)
Since many people don't have opportunity to see these laptops in person, it would be nice to see some photos from the screen. It would be nice if some could post pictures from dual lamp screen too, so we can compare the difference.
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.
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.
fairly old Vaio laptop. Can barely get past start up screen. Half the time all i get is black screem when i turn it on. I can get into windows though after a few attempts. I would like to completely reformat it, preferably putting on xp or even the new Windows 7. But i dont have any boots discs. So i don't know how to go about doing it. A breif step by step on how to wipe my laptop would be perfect.
Today my 2 week old laptop was closed, put into a fully padded laptop bag, Velcro strap over to hold it in place. Nothing else in the bag. Put in car, drove 80 miles, took out of car and setup. 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.
Recently I have noticed that at the bottom of my Sony FW screen it gets quite hot. It gets hot where the Sony writing is, all the way along the bottom, where I think the screens inverter is located behind.
Also If I run my finger from the bottom of the screen, upwards, towards the top, it gradually goes from warm to cold.
Is there something overheating or would this just be normal?
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.
