Specs: Windows vista
Right basicly when i turn my sony vaio vgn-fe41e laptop on coloured fuzzy lines and bozes cover the screen making it impossible to see anything just boxes and lines. The sound and all the keys still work, its just the screen. Could it be the graphics card? And if so how the hell do i sort it out???????? ITS MAKING ME STRESSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hook it up to a monitor and see if it still distorts. If it does it's your graphics chip. There is no card in a laptop.

just tryed that with a desktop monitor and my tv and the screen stays blank. Can you buy another graphics chip for a laptop?

No, it's on the motherboard. Even if you could, you could probably buy a new laptop cheaper. One option is to have the mobo replaced.Looks like a trip to the repair shop is on the schedule. Good Luck.

Did you try using the Fn+F3 keys to change the display from the laptop to the monitor?
