pcg-2j3l switches to blank screen

May 20, 2013 at 22:13:31
Specs: Windows Vista, 4G
My Sony pcg-2j3l keep blank out the screen. When first start up, it shows boot up screen, went blank, then back to showing Windows boot up, then blank again. Seem everything else is running fine since I wait awhile and blindly enter the password to my login screen. I got the sound for logged in, but the screen is blank.

What could cause the problem and how to I fix it?

I also trying to press F2 during boot up and successfully went to bios setup screen. But the screen went blank after a few seconds.

Since it's doing it also during bios setup it's not a windows video setting problem.

Since you can go ahead and enter the password even thouigh the screen is blank and then hear the windows sounds I would guess the problem is the monitor and not the video card since a flakey card might cause an error message that prevents windows from loading.

But don't spend money on a new monitor based on my guess. First try another monitor and see if the problem goes away.
