Question about Sony VAIO FX340 Notebook

1 Answer

Sony PC Notebook system starts but screen does not.

Just the day before my notebook screen just decided to not turn on anymore, it was working just fine. The system starts (I can see the power lights flashing) eventhough it makes no on sound, BUT THE SCREEN IS TOTALLY OFF! it's dead, it doesn't turn on and I have no idea what might be possible reasons for this incident...does anyone have any possible solution or idea?

    I have my old battery off and already replaced my clock battery, but still my vaio can´t start, The green led is ON, but the HD yellow led makes an attempt to get ON but doesn´t go further, the display never gets ON.



    Every once in a while the PC starts but very rarely



    any idea what is the problem?

It may be the battery, have you replaced yet?. if a battery is too old, instead of providing power, takes some on it. I mean, your old battery may be overloading your PC, just to check, take the battery off, plug the vaio to an outlet and try again to start it up.
If that solves the problem, replacing the battery will be the solution.

    another possible problem may be the clock battery that one is accesible by screw driver, on the bottom of your laptop, in the case of this vaio is located inside the smallest cover, hold by a screw.

    Very simple to replaced and very cheap, a buck or two in any radioshack

Blue Screen hardware error on new HP g series notebook pc


It appears you have a faulty notebook. This can happen if the notebook come from the same batch of units that could be faulty.
I suggest you return the notebook to the store and get it fixed under warranty.

My sony vaio VGN-AW41ZF keeps turning off by itself. It doesnt shut down, just cuts off as if there is no power but the battery is fully charged and plugged in. Could this be an overheating problem?


I have a Sony VAIO GRS170/GRS175 in use almost every day since 2003. It used to turn off regularly during hot summer days even with its battery fully charged and plugged in. The problem was eliminated by using a small fan to blow air at its side where the air intake was located. Later, the fan was replaced with a notebook cooling pad which was more convenient. You could first try using a fan to see if it makes any difference. If you don't get anymore shut downs, then the problem is definitely due to overheating. You could then replace the fan with a notebook cooling pad.

Try rebooting and hitting the F8 repeatedly as soon as the boot sequence starts. When it comes up to an options screen select repair. From there you can let windows try to repair or select to install to the factory settings.

Vista vaio survey has stopped working


VAIO Update has been disabled. Start , all Programs, VAIO Update 3, VAIO Update Options , Reenable the checkboxes and you shouldn't get the message anymore. This program runs at startup to check for updates with SONY, pretty useless.

Screen doesn't work


If the lid switch isnt stuck I'd look to the Inverter to be bad. Check on external monitor to verify Video there however.
