Sony Vaio VGN-FZ21M screen problem

\015 Hi, I have had a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ21M laptop for a little more than 1 year. In the last couple of weeks I started to get intermittent screen problems. Initially the colours (mainly the blue) started flickering, then at times the whole screen started showing jumbled trembling horizontal bars so that you could't read the display at all. This lasts from a couple of minutes to 10-20 mins or more at a time.This happens on and off at times, but is getting more frequent. Any help on what might cause it and how I go about solving it would be greatly appreciated!\015

Hi, I have the same problem with my Sony Vaio VGN FZ21. I started checking the web and found so many postings with the same garphic card and screen problem. After two weeks Sony returned my notebook....it worked for one day, now the same problem again. Today DHL picked up my notebook to be repaired again. I have now forwarded my official claim, made 24 phonecalls in 2,5 weeks. The Dutch Consumer Law organisation is aware also and if necessary they will step in, my deadline is Friday February 26. I still have some interesting stories related to their after-service, it's amazing that a big company like Sony delivers the worst quality I have ever experienced when having problems with something I purchased. I have been in contact with 8 persons now, 2 were helpful and tried.
\015\012Solving a complaint creates loyal customers. I don't have the impression yet this will happen to Harald! .
\015\012My advice to all of you out there who think of buying a Sony VAIO....be aware that they have confirmed they have a serious problem with their graphic cards / screens. The usual two year warranty has been changed into 4 years. Why would you do that? That's done when you know your product does not have the quality it should have.
\015\012Let's see how this ends, I will keep you all updated.
