Having problems with your Sony VAIO PCG-K33 Notebook ?

VAIO PCG-K33 display goes blank during windows boot Options Ther

\015 Hi All,My Sony has a problem that I can't seem to fix so I'm looking forhelp.When I power on my laptop I can see the Sony logo, I can get into BIOSand I can load MS Memory Checker and still see everything on the LCDscreen. I will call this text mode.Once the HD begins to boot, before I get the 1st loading Windowsscreen (the color screen with the little bar graph) the LCD goes blank(the backlight goes off, I see this because I have taken off thebezel) but the external monitor still show the progress. I will callthis graphics mode.I have swapped the LCD screen (with LCD cable attached) and I swappedthe inverter board, both came from a working laptop of the samemodel. I see the same result, once graphics mode starts the screengoes blank and the backlight turns off.I then installed the LCD screen (with LCD cable attached) and inverterboard that I just removed into the known good laptop. This time theLCD screen works fine. Both text and graphics mode work as it shouldand Windows XP boots fine and I can see everything on the LCD screen.I have the laptop set to display on both the LCD screen and externalVGA monitor, both laptops were checked and the setting on both iscorrect.It is not a driver problem because I also swapped hard disks and I getthe same results.Can anyone suggest anything else I might check?Thanks for any help,Charles\015
