Sorry if its in the wrong forum. This has really bothered me for some time, i know im not the only one, most people living in Europe have the same problem as me. Basically when watching any videos or films there is a strip of grey line at the bottom of the screen. I paid so much money for this laptop and this is on there. I have spoke to my solicitors and they have said that Sony have to provide a quality product under the sales of the goods act, which they havent. Now I will send it to Sony to look at, but has anyone with the same problem manage to get this sorted out.

sorry ,never heard of the problem ,but if everyone in Europe has the problem how come when i google ,"Sony vaio F12 grey line"your post in other forums are all that show up, did you try reinstalling or installing updated video drivers for you laptop , did you try backing up all important data and reinstalling windows ,also might be a good idea to try a live linux dvd and see if it shows in Linux
maybe try ther puppy live
