Scott, I have this Sony VAIO VPCS111FM Laptop PC - model PCG51211L with a display problem. I have attached photos of the symptom. I suspect that I may have a bad Video cable or bad LCD panel. I'm starting wonder if this symptom is caused by the mother board. The LCD panel displays white and blue vertical lines across the panel,unreadable display.The LCD panel's display becomes readable when an external monitor is plugged in,although the display is dimer than it should be with Brightness set at maximum. Do you think this could be a problem on the motherboard,such as the graphics chip? I can replace the LCD panel with a new LCD screen ,cost $64.99 plus labor.

It does sound like a bad cable or panel, especially if it displays properly on an external display. While it is possible the motherboard might be involved, that seems unlikely in this case (the "video card" is built-in to the processor), and a replacement display will cost much less than a new board. Let me know what you find, Scott.

I ordered new LCD panel .It only going to cost me 64.99 for a new glossy Samsung LTN133AT16 13.3-inch WideScreen WXGA (1366X768) HD LCD panel + 16.00 shipping. I'll post back after I installed the replacement LCD screen .

My apologies for taking so long to posting a follow up. I received the new 13 inch LCD panel and I installed it .The system retested ok. The LCD panel was the source of the problem .
