Sony :: Vaio Z Screen Flashes At Startup

Apr 6, 2009

I just received my Vaio Z this past weekend! Everything works great, but I did notice that my screen flashes once when I boot into windows. Is this normal? I did do a full system recovery with the option of not preinstalling extra software (don't need excess things on the laptop); I do not think this is the reason, but I do not remember if this happened before.

Sony :: Vaio Z Startup Screen Flickers And Graphics Card Failures

Mar 30, 2010

when I turn on my Z, the screen glitches two or three times upon hitting the login screen. Does this happen for anyone else?

Sometimes, (it's happened once or twice) my graphics card even failed upon logging in and had to be reloaded, and even, on one occassion, completely shut down my computer (Straight to black, green light turned red) in the middle of casual browsing.

Are these causes for concern? Should I return my laptop?

Sony :: The Vaio Startup Assistant Loads On Startup

Oct 8, 2009

When I first loaded up my Vaio the Startup Assistant booted by itself and I unchecked the box to stop booting on startup. After the while the Startup Assistant started booting up by itself even though the box is still unchecked. I thought by recovering to factory settings and unchecking the box would fix it but it has started booting up again.

how I can get rid of the Vaio software?

Acer :: Aspire 5534 Laptop Screen Flashes While On Internet

Nov 26, 2009

I just got this brand new Acer Aspire 5534 notebook (laptop) a few days ago. The wireless has been working just fine and all the systems are functioning as well. last night when i turned on my laptop and went onto the internet the screen on the webpages were flashing violently. The flashing is worse when i move my cursor, type, or if the page loads. Some sites like Facebook and google the flashing gets worse while im on them.

I have tried changing my battery settings, uploading "drivers" and updates, and disconnecting my wireless. I know that the problem doesn't lie in my wireless network itself since the problem occurs no matter what wireless network im using. my LAN communication network indicator is flashing orange. I have heard that this means that the wireless is connecting with my laptop incorectly or sending "traffic" or something. I am assuming that maybe the problem is with the way my computer is recieving wireless or something realating to that since i can be on any network and the orange LAN light flashes and the screen flashes too.

Apple :: Macbook Pro Late '08Half Of Screen Flashes Black

Mar 7, 2009

I have a late '08 unibody MBP. Every once in a while, generally not every day but once every few days, I have a split-second issue where half of the screen on my MBP flashes black for a split-second. Everything's perfectly normal before and afterwards, just that. I suppose it's not terribly bothersome, but it is noticeable. I've done some searching and it seems to be happening to many people and may be software based.

Sony :: Vaio Startup (boot) Chime Sound

Feb 23, 2009

When you boot your Vaio you will hear a special chime, this is one of Sony Vaio's feature. I know that some people do not like this sound and disable it in the boot menu. On the contrary, I quite like this chime. I want to use it in my mobile phone as a ringtone or a message sound. I try to find it in my Vaio S36 but couldn't find it. Can anyone please help me find the boot sound file or tell me where it is located in hard drive?

HP/Compaq :: Dead Screen Only During BIOS And In XP Startup

May 2, 2010

Last year I replaced my inverter as my screen was dead. I thought it was the lamp as I couldn't see the screen with a flashlight, but it was the inverter and worked fine after that.

At the same time I bought an external monitor to use for the larger size and recently I have been using the computer out and about.

So since I replaced the inverter on startup the screen will be dead most of the time. By the time it gets to XP it will turn on if I press FN and F4 several times. Sometimes I close and open the lid as I mumble obscenities, always entertaining while public. At first I thought it was the external monitor software confusing the computer into thinking it was plugged into an external but I change the screen back to notebook when I take my computer on the go.

If I boot into Ubuntu the screen will be dead during BIOS but once it gets to the log in screen on Linux the screen turns on.

Sometimes the screen will be on right from the get go. I have no problems when it is connected to an external monitor.

Apple :: Macbook Pro - Blank Screen On Startup

Oct 3, 2009

I've got a late 07 macbook pro with those faulty 8600 nvidia gpus. My macbook pro was working fine last night and now this afternoon its got a blank screen upon startup. I can still hear the chime and it still boots into the OS as i can still change the volume and backlit brightness etc.... Is it confirmed to say that my luck has ran out and the GPU is dead?

My warranty has expired and have no extended applecare + I bought the macbook in one of those education apple store. Will I still be able to get the free repairs as stated by apple and even if I do, won't they still replace the logic board with another unused faulty one and down the track my macbook pro will still be prone to that same failure?

Apple :: Prolonged Blue Screen On Startup -Aluminum MBP 2.53 GHz

May 14, 2009

I've had my MBP since 1 week now, and I've been using it a lot. At first, the startup time was around 35 seconds, but recently I have noticed that the blue screen at the end of the startup process is staying for much longer than it should (around 8 seconds).

I have tried:

-Repairing Disk with the Disk Utility and the Leopard DVD
-Repairing Permissions
-Defragmenting (3rd party software)
-Deleting the ApplicationEnhancement.bundle file using [command-S]
-Deleting preference files of uninstalled programs.

But nothing worked. The blue screen still lasts 8 seconds and the pointer appears at the top left corner. The startup time is now 50 seconds, which is about the same as Windows and I don't want that.

Apple :: Macbook Dropped - Won't Get Past Grey Startup Screen

Dec 16, 2009

So my wife just got a brand new macbook about a week ago, but accidentally dropped it about a foot or two this morning. The "case" which we got from macmall did practically nothing, and I think one corner of the macbook took the brunt of it.

Now, the macbook won't get past the grey startup screen. I'll see the mac symbol, and then a "no entry" (circle with a diagonal line through it) sign, and then the system will just hang.

I've used the Mac OS X install dvd to use Disk Utility to try to repair the hard drive, but Disk Utility didn't find any problems. Everything was green and good to go.

I'm running the Hardware Test now, but I was wondering if anyone here would have any ideas about what to do next, or what is causing this problem?

Update 1: The hardware test said everything was fine, too.

Update 2: It can boot in safe mode! Everything looks good from the safe boot, I've got access to all the files and everything..........................

HP/Compaq :: V2000lightning Symbol Flashes But Won't Boot

Apr 9, 2009

I bought a Compaq v2000 a few years ago, has worked fine up until a couple weeks ago.

Now, it won't turn on. The battery (12 cell? extended version) has probably been dead for a while, but we always use AC power so no big deal there.

Currently, if you hit the power button, the amber lightning symbol on the front just flashes 3 or 4 times, then nothing.

Take the battery out, same thing. Take the AC adapter out, same thing.

My initial guess is battery or power supply are toast, but seems weird for it to just die like that (guess that's how it is with electronics though). If it is a total loss, no big deal, just need to get the hdd out and copy stuff off, the laptop probably needed replacing anyway...

Acer :: 7720, Battery Only Gets To 90%, Batt. LED Flashes Wildly

Mar 29, 2010

after some heavy usage, my Acer Aspire 7720 laptop started to accept only ~92% of battery charge and never gets out of that.

Also, the battery LED flashes inconsistently (e.g. will stay on for a few minutes, then will blink wildly). I

I use Arch Linux as my main OS, but it seems to be platform-independent (even when it's turned off it happens). The BIOS is the latest 1.45.

Sony :: 85-90 Processes On Startup

Mar 4, 2009

When I turn on my Vaio Z, there are always around 85-90 processes running. That's a significantly more than my 3 year old Dell!

I also would also like to ask about the fan on my computer, which seems to always be on. It can't be heard in a room with people, but by myself, the sound becomes a nuisance.

Is it normal to have this fan on at all times (once in a very rare while, it turns off and is silent)? Is this an issue with my computer? Is it due to the fact that there are too many processes running

Sony :: TX650p Won't Startup

Apr 22, 2010

A TX650p recently came into my possession that won't start up. When you hit the power button the power light goes on and the CD drive spins up, but the laptop doesn't boot.

I've tried attaching it to an external monitor, no luck. I've tried removing EVERY component, no luck. It has built-in RAM so it could be faulty. The chips are BGA so it could be cracked solder.

Sony :: Vaio FZ Screen

Mar 9, 2010

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 :: Didn't Put Battery In During First Startup NW-130

Aug 14, 2009

I just bought a new sony laptop and when I first started it, I forgot to put in the battery and just plugged in the AC adapter. So near the end of the setup of the system language and everything, I got a blue screen saying something about a power state failure and the computer shutdown. I immediately put the battery in and turned back on the computer and after a while, it was fine. So should i be concerned if i permanently damaged the computer or anything?

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.

A breif step by step on how to wipe my laptop would be perfect.

Sony :: Vaio Z21 Screen And TrackPad

Sep 3, 2009

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.

Sony :: Marks On Vaio Z11 (VGN-Z11) Screen

Oct 21, 2009

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...
