i have sony vaio all in one desk top, the computer is working but the screen remains black, but i press the screen on/off switch on and off it comes on for about 3 seconds then goes off again. someone said the backlight is at fault and i will need a new screen. if thats the case will i need a whole new pc as my harddrive and screen are all one unit.

It might be the backlight or the inverter that powers the backlight or the video circuits on the motherboard. These all-in-one computers need to be repaired at the manufacturer's service center. Does the Sony have a video output jack for an external monitor? You might be able to use an external monitor.

Good Luck
thank you, i will have a look for that. not at home at the mo so will check when i get back. thanks again
