Booting problem on Sony Vaio Laptop

  1. When I press the power button, the screen immediately goes gray before the Sony opening even pops up. I hear the normal bootup sounds and see the front light flickering, and even hear the fan going, but I don't see anything on the screen. I am trying to boot up the laptop but all I get is a blank screen that slowly changes colors from black to blue and back and forth extremely slowly.

    I've tried F8 while the computer is starting and can't get into Safe Mode. I've removed the battery and had the computer solely on AC power and that didn't work. I've tried every possible key combination into a blank screen and screen and nothing works.

    Please help! Thank you

    It sounds as it the backlight or the power supply to the screen has failed. You need a specialist shop to fix it. If you are in the UK, sent me a PM and I will give you the name of a repair shop near Bedford where they can be trusted to fix it.
