video card error. No video on start-up. Sony vaio all in one PC.

Anyone know how to fix this error. I get 1 long beep and 2 short beeps at start-up and no video but I get sound? Anyone know a cost effective way to fix this?

That beep code means that there is a video controller failure. It's unlikely that it's anything that can be fixed by anyone but a service technician.

Unless you have a removable graphics card in that rig.

What is the model number?

Windows 7 Ultimate Retail Box (64-bit installed) + Service Pack 1

That's a 2007 built system, so salvage the HD/data and buy a new one is what I would do, it's lasted longer than expected.

I got suspicious when SONY mentioned Vista and looked at the driver/bios updates to determine the likely year of origin.
