JGJTan Icon : (05 July 2018 - 10:07 AM) So this has been a while! It's @jgjtan and @leftyy here having a nostalgia trip. We hope you all have been having a great time so far! Miss you, be back in another 5-10 years. (Or find me on social media -- it's not that hard.)

Res Icon : (06 October 2017 - 03:11 AM) As well as things can be, good to hear from you all :D!!! Much love all around.
X Zolon Icon : (05 October 2017 - 05:02 AM) Strange. I was thinking about it around the same time. Just didn't come back until now. Hope everyone is well.
Glammeress Icon : (16 July 2017 - 12:48 AM) Just thinking about this place, like out of nowhere. Hope everyone is well.
Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 04:07 PM) Not bad. Just finishing up grad school. Which means I am looking for distractions from writing. :p
Phieta Icon : (09 July 2017 - 05:06 AM) Still flying, so to speak. How goes with you?
Rylkan Icon : (09 July 2017 - 02:42 AM) I am even more amazed someone replied to this in less than a few month timescale. Hi! How goes?
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:43 PM) He does log into GW every month or so to retain leadership, so that's something
Phieta Icon : (08 July 2017 - 09:42 PM) There are several of us! Several!
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:33 PM) I was actually hoping to get in touch with Cspace since its been forever. But it looks like our old leader is lost to the void.
Rylkan Icon : (08 July 2017 - 06:29 PM) In a moment of pure nostalgia, I remembered this site. Seeing any shouts from this year is insane.

Help with Laptop Screen LCD Issues

Hello, I'm trying to help my room-mate with his Sony Vaio C25G Laptop. When I power it on, the lights turn on and the system boots up. I can hear the start-up sounds and everything. The problem is the LCD screen is not turning on. I thought replacing the LCD screen would fix the problem. I ordered a new screen and installed it. It seems I am still having the same problem, the LCD screen is not turning on.

I seriously thought replacing the LCD screen would fix the issue. He doesn't want to throw the laptop away and replace it since everything but the screen seems to work fine.

Also, I tried connecting it to an external monitor. When it is connected, it is just a black screen aswell. But when I disconnect it, the screen says "No Signal" so obviously it is picking something up. I'm guessing secondary monitors are not enabled but I would not be able to enable it since I cannot see what is on the screen.

Specs can be found here: http://www.sonystyle...gn_c25g_h_e.jsp

If any further information is needed I can provide it (Pictures, Service tag, etc.)

Any information on what else I can do to fix the laptop is appreciated. Thank you very much.
(I charged $70 on my credit card to help him fix it but it isn't working so he's not reimbursing me :( lol)

Is it still under warranty?

Just look around there, maybe you can get it RMA'd.
