the weird thing is that sometimes it worked (not many)...
but could not reproduce the same action to perform the same result i.e. Pissed off, I am I had the same problem with a vaio vgn-sz120p and a Samsung lcd LN-s4051D.
Samsung tech told me to check with sony for new updates, I did and downloaded an updated intenden to solve the issue (The update read "This utility updates the VAIO® Event Service to version 2.3.00.08110 to address an issue where the computer is unable to output to certain monitors.") However no luck.
I tried hooking my Samsung to another desktop, wala it works fine.

Maybe something as easy as not sending the Vaio's output to an attached monitor. Yes I tried quite a few times using Fn and F7 but it has never worked out.
I called Sony and was told this has been a known issue and solved yet. Thanks I have the same kind of issue between my vaio and my Samsung TV LCD through VGA...
When the palm rest assembly is removed you get an access to the hard drive, DVD drive, wireless card and CMOS battery. Remove three screws securing the hard drive assembly. If you are replacing or upgrading the hard drive you’ll have to transfer the mounting bracket and cable from the old drive to a new one. This adapter has to stay attached to the motherboard. In one of the previous guides I explain how to remove the LCD screen and inverter board from a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ series laptop.
Just for the heck of it I unpluged the VGA cable while the TV was on PC input and pluged it in to my vaio Laptop, and for my surprise it worked. =) Hi, I have the same problem and I didn't manage to solve it !
Anyone use one of Kensington's universal power supplies with their VGN-SR? Their compatibility wizard on the Kensington website doesn't list the VGN-SR290; only lists a Vaio SR series.
Now you can clean the cooling fan and heat sink with compressed air.
Both memory modules could be access through the door on the bottom of the laptop.
