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?

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?

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.

HP Envy TS 15t-j000 Display :: Flashes Between A Blue And Desktop Screen

Oct 30, 2014

Product: HP ENVY TouchSmart 15t-j000 Select Edition CTO Notebook PC, Model C9G48AAR, Product Number: C8P45AV

Problem: After logging in, the screen flashes the Start Screen on and off in random fashion, and is unresponsive to any input.

Effort: We followed the instructions on the HP web site for this symptom (Desktop Screen Flashes Between a Blue Screen with a Blank Taskbar and a Desktop Screen on Startup (Windows 8)), but it failed at step 8 - the Start Screen flashes in Safe Mode with no way to find or enter the "Control Panel" step.

We have also rolled back the system to the last restore point, reseated the memory, and reset the BIOS - all HP recommended processes for video problems.

Current Status: We always look to resolve any problems via the HP web site first; this one had us stumped.

Dell Inspiron 17R :: When Start Laptop Logo Flashes On Screen And Turns Blank

Apr 17, 2013

I am currently using windows 8 as my OS. When I attempt to start my laptop the Dell logo flashes on the screen and the screen turns blank/black and sits there for a few min before displaying an empty bar and F12 Boot Options in the bottom right hand corner.

I have attempted to press F12 to try and load windows in safe mode but everything is frozen at this point.

Is there a way to determine if its a hardware issue or windows issue. When I searched for the issue I found some with a similar issue but the link provided for support was no longer valid

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 :: 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.

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...

Sony :: Vaio FW Screen Heat

Sep 1, 2009

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?

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 :: Blue Screen- Vaio VGN NS190D

May 2, 2009

I own a Sony Vaio VGN NS190D and recently I've been receiving a "dumping physical memory error". Since I've always been able to restart and start working again, I've never paid it any mind.

This is what appears:

Sony :: New Vaio Z With 1920 Screen- On The Brightness

Apr 1, 2010

received the new Z 7 days ago, great is just a great little notebook, the best i had (coming from an SZ premium).

The only thing that is killing me is the auto brightness, the resolution is the 1920x and in dim light the brightness is going down, after 1 hour my eyes are red. The only thing that i can do is putting the lamp directly on top of the keyboard so the sensor adjusts the brightness to the maximum level.

What can i do? I can't find a way to turn down the auto brightness....

Sony :: Vaio Z Diagonal Lines On Screen

Jul 20, 2009

I have a Vaio Z with the 1600 by 900 screen, since having it repaired (the bottom case replaced) I have noticed Diagonal lines from the top left to bottom right.

I have had it in with Vaio Link, but they say they can see nothing wrong with it and sent it back

The lines/banding show in the Bios so it is not software related.

Does any else's screens look like this? I have compared it with another model in the Sony Shop and that one didn't seem to have the issue.

1: Diagonal lines from top left to bottom right in the lighter colours, this is in MS paint.

2: BBC web site, the Diagonal lines are clearly seen in the BBC blue.

3: Sony Vaio Bios, is clear in the light blue and lightly in the white area.
