I bought a broke vgn-sz330p laptop. the mother board got a drop of water on it by the touch pad. I replaced the motherboard with 3 diff used motherboards for the same model the computer turns on but no screen. i can not get the screen to work. This sony does not have the extra bright screen i have replaced the power board too and the inverter and sound board. same problem still there. There are 2 diff screens, glossy extra bright and one that is not. This is the normal screen not extra bright. I


Answers :

Do you hear a beeping sound when you turn it on?...If so, you may want to check the fitting of your memory module...make sure the contacts are cleaned (by rubbing an ordinary pencil eraser on the contact area). Check also the "processor" make sure its fitted well and the contacts are Aok.
Another suggestion is to disconnect first the drives (Hard disk, dvd drive) when turning this on. this helps isolate the problem further.

Hope this helps....
