I haven't used my laptop in a couple of days and I had no problems with it the last time I used it, but i tried a few times to boot up my computer. The Sony Vaio screen that displays right before windows is bright, but when Windows boots up, the screen is very dark. I tried to boot up the computer in safe mode, but I get the same results. What is wrong with my computer? If you have any answers, please email me. Thank you.

check you video drivers in device manager. did you install any new software in the last couople of days. You might need to rollback your system if you did. Also.. Monitor's do fail somtimes. If you know anything about POST (power on self test) Hit F2 at reboot and switch to verbose mode and you will see your system check things out after you reboot.

Also try lowering you monitor resolution to lets say 600x800 and see what happens, or even smaller through your video card interface such as the ati control panel (or whatever vendor) if possible.

Also most notebooks have light adjustment settings.. mess with those too.

and last but not least... Call Sony! this may be a known issue.
