Question about Sony VAIO Notebook
Exhibits typical graphics card problem of lines across the screen etc. Flexing the case clears the problem. I think that the GPU bga is suffering from dry-joints. Anyone had any success with repairing this problem?
That 'flexing' the case puts tension on the ribbon cable that connects the motherboard with the screen. replacing that video component(up under keyboard top) will do the trick
cpu is far removed physically from this issue

Not quiet sure what you mean by its only using a fraction of your graphics card?
If you go in to device manager it will tell you what graphics card you have.
What game is it you are trying to play?
If it is lagging then it suggest that your card isnt powerfull enough to cope with the game.
Have you tried dropping the display settings in the game to see if that helps?

IF YOU CHANGE THE MB.. SHOULD THE PCU IS COMPATIBLE WITH THEN MB.. ABOUT THE RAM SHOULD BE COMPATIBLE ALSO...LOOK THE COMPATIBLITY OF YOUR SPESIFICATION OF YOUR SYSTEM.... THE VIDEO GRAPHICS ACTUALLY IS BUILT IN THE MB JUST INSTALL THE RIGHT DRIVER.. ABOUT THE BIOS NO NEED TO RESET.. AFTER THE FIXING THE MB..FORMAT YOU HDD. OR INSTALL NEW ONE NOT OLD.. BECAUSE NEW MB.. IF YOU USE THE OLD OS YOU WILL MEET A LOT OF PROBLEM,, LIKE BLUE SCREENN,, AUTOSHUT OFF,, SOUND NOT WORKING, OR ANY POSIBLE BECAUSE OF FEATURES SOMTIMES.
