I am using sony vaio E series laptop.
i3 processor
4gb RAM
1gb ATI Radeon

I left my laptop running all night , but this is not the first time. Its been 4 years and this system is showing this kind of problem for the first time. The display is scrambled, even the Bios is showing the same problem .

I am not able to start the laptop in normal mode ,its directly jumps to the BLUE screen saying "dumping physical memory....." but when i start it in safe mode , its working but the display is still messed up.

NOTE : This problem was fixed automatically for few hours but as soon as i disturbed the laptops position , its display went back to scrap. I am not able to get the problem is it my motherboad is gone or my graphics or its just the wires . Thanx for the help.

Try this: shut it down, remove AC, removed the battery, let stand for about 30 minutes, then reconnected and restart. Still the same problem? – CharlieRB Nov 18 '13 at 13:33
@CharlieRB - Thank you for the reply but yes i have tried this. – Ranvijay Nov 19 '13 at 4:50
@Chenmunka Yes i also wanted to try this but my system starts only in safe mode and in safe mode i don't get this option to connect it to projector or any other monitor – Ranvijay Nov 19 '13 at 5:59
Honestly, our guesses are just wasting your time. You are probably better off having a technician open it up to see what is wrong. Could be a bad motherboard, video adapter or just a loose connector. – CharlieRB Nov 19 '13 at 12:44
I appreciate your honesty , thank you . – Ranvijay Nov 19 '13 at 13:11

There was problem with the display, my screen was damaged and i had to replace the screen with a new one . It costed my 5000 rupees for a Sony 15 inch screen. The good new is that neither my motherboard nor my graphics card was corrupted which would have been coasted me around 12000 rupees.
