Hi All,

All help appreciated..

Have linked my laptop to my 32" LG LCD for sometime and it has worked fine, however recently it has stared to show some colour issues. E.g it will show the screen however it would be predominantly, green, yellow, now red has appeared... which makes viewing a little difficult.. Telly is fine on all other modes and laptop screen is fine... So assuming this is a GFX card issue but only when using an external display??

FYI - Sony VAIO VGN FE31M
Using a standard monitor cable (VGA) to link devices.


Thanks in advance,

could it be that the sony has gone to power saving mode and reduced output?

Possible cable problem. Check both ends or try another cable. You could try the laptop on another TV with a different cable, this will determine if it is the laptop at fault.
