    My Sony is doing the same thing. I replaced the power jack because it would not charge. I booted it and it came up. The Battery was now charging and thought everything was OK. Then I turned everything off to put screws back in and now it wont boot. Nothing happens, no Sony logo, nothing but power and Bluetooth lights. It shows the battery light, unless I plug it in, and then it flashes showing the battery is charging. I tore it all back down to see if there was something loose, but cannot find anything wrong. I took out the memory and still the same thing. I took out the CPU and turned it on, and it turned right back off. I put CPU back in and its back to doing the same thing, power lights, DVD spins, Hard drive spins, DVD ejects. No Hard Drive activity light blinking.

1. Try un-plug and re-plug memory chips.

3. Mother board was faulty.

My sony vaio vgn fs790 would'nt start up all it does is light up all of the three lights located near the power button and the lights near the battery indicator too, and they stay on. then it...

It sounds like you may be having a video related issue. These issues may indicate that you have a problem with either your video card or your lcd screen. To isolate the issue, you have to connect an external monitor to the VGA port of the portable system. There should be an S2 button on your laptop which should allow you to switch videos. Press that and if the video appears on the monitor, then it is an issue with the LCD screen. If nothing happens, you have a video card failure. These are due for replacement already.

I can not turn on my Sony Vaio laptop. when I press the on botton it shows vaio and windows xp as if its starting then it keeps on doing same procedure without turning on to windows xp for use! Thanx.

use a windows setup disc and check for problems on your installation, it sounds as if a driver update is causing the laptop to crash , hence why windows is not starting. Have you tried entering safe mode? Are you able to start windows this way?

It sounds like you have corrupted files in windows, or you have a problem with the hard drive. Remove the hard drive and re-seat it back in place, start up the computer! If no change, use the original recovery disc if you have one and reload the operational system, if that fails have the hard drive tested for bad sectors at the computer repair store.

Problem with Sony Vaio pcv-rx860 (screen goes black at startup)

I would suggest first to try to take one stick of memory out and try to boot up the pc. Sometimes, one or both of the memory sticks can go bad or the memory slot on the motherboard itself can go bad. If that is not the case I would then remove all of the usb connected to the computer and last i would test the power supply.
