Question about Sony VAIO VGN-SZ340 Notebook

1 Answer

Motherboard Sent pc to San Diego and told me that motherboard is defective and would cost $755. This is because D-drive (CD-DVD ROM drive) has disappeared and has not returned. Insult to injury,they only wanted to take 10% off repair price. This being that I have physically owned this pc since May 2007. If someone can tell me where or how to find the make of motherboard,I would appreciate it. Thank you

Why does my desktop DELL Optiplex 1700L just flash YELLOW and refuse to come on, motherboard light is on


An Amber (Yellow) blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

OptiPlex 755 flashing orange light only


An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Since you replaced the power supply, my guess is that the motherboard has a problem.

Optiplex 755 showing orange colour light on power button.. how can i fix this problem


A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

I HAVE N1996 MOTHERBOARD AND SATA CD-ROM BUT MY CD-ROM IS NOT DETECTING PLEASE SUGGEST ME FOR THIS PROBLEM


Hai, this is cybersaber..

Most common reason for undetected CD or DVD ROM is defect in the wire that connects the drive and the motherboard (a red flattened wire). change it and let your PC find it or give some hand with option find new hardware.

ENJOY!!

My sony vaio(VGC-LS21N)crashed,I took into a repair shop,the shop told me it was the video card,but being that its an all-in-one system the whole motherboard needs to be replaced.The problem is that its...


Without a copy of the diagnostics they did, if it is the video card then they are correct. The video card is a part of the main unit (motherboard). You would need to replace your motherboard, which can be costly.

An alternative is that if you have data you want to keep is that you can put the hard drive in an external hard drive enclosure and get another laptop.

Pc died


Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....
