after boot getting horizontal line on screen

July 20, 2011 at 03:46:05
Specs: Windows
I have a Sony Vaio. after booting of OS the horizontal lines are coming on the screen. but I can hear the sound of starting OS. and this problem is coming randomly. when I went to Sony service they advised me to change the mother board since the problem is related to Graphic card and it directly mounted on the mother board. Someone please guide me what should I do with this problem.

Hi, Rahul

Sony has already advised you what needs to be done.
They speak the truth - the graphics card IS mounted directly on the motherboard.
You can't fit just a new graphics card, the whole motherboard has to be changed.

The term CARD is frequently mis-used. Any device adapter that's built into the mboard IS NOT A CARD !

Is this a laptop or netbook ?

If yes, it's a lot more likely you have a problem with the built in display than there's anything wrong with the graphics adapter.

Try connecting an external monitor to the video port (always plug it in or unplug it when the computer is not running).
In most cases, the video will be fine on that. (If it isn't, you must replace the mboard.)

Some laptops will display on an external monitor without you having to do anything. For others, you need to press a specific key combo to toggle the display to external video, built in video - see the Owner's or User's manual for your model.
