Laptop LCD screen gone grey.
Posted on 2003-11-10
As it was booting the other day, the lcd panel on my VAIO laptop turned to a shade of grey and shows no picure. Nothing, when I turn it off then back on it just flashes grey durring post and such but once the OS loads its grey. The computer itself is fine, I hooked it up to a desktop monitor to see if it was somthing internal with the processor and the like but thats negative. I opened the case and re-seated all the monitor interfaces but still no luck. Could it be a failing LCD controller? or could the panel itself be at fault?

Works fine with an external monitor but that defeats the purpose of having a mobile computer.
