I recently formatted my HDD on my Sony Vaio laptop (SVE151C11M).
I reinstalled Windows 7 x64 Home Edition, the necessary drivers (also graphics) and the programs I need.

Now, when my computer leaves standby mode, my graphics card fails horribly.
I did not have this problem before the reinstall and I really need the standby function.

Here's a video of the problem: Video

If anyone has any suggestions on how I could maybe fix this problem, I'd be very grateful.

Seems like a faulty monitor link, have you tried tilting the monitor to different angles? Or connecting a monitor to the display port? – Doktoro Reichard Aug 21 '13 at 10:15
This is a pure driver problem you installed the drivers provided by Sony? – Ramhound Aug 21 '13 at 10:16
Yeah, I installed the drivers on the page of my laptop model. – M. Boeckx Aug 21 '13 at 10:21
I just reinstalled my graphics driver and it didn't do a thing... – M. Boeckx Aug 21 '13 at 19:25
