A list of problems (sony vaio VGC RB-52)

Ok well where do I start... I have a Sony Vaio VGC RB-52. There was a power surge in the area therefor my computer died (the green power light in the back was blinking). I actually read a tip on here about disconnecting the power from the motherboard and success! it worked! BUT.. now my monitor ''turn on''. It just stays on standby mode.. I've tried everything, I literally disconnected everything from the motherboard and re-connected it... I was getting a weird clicking noise which sounded like it was coming from the CD drive(s) so I disconnected those and it turns out the clicking stopped. Re-connected and still the same problem... now the computer won't even power on.. any advice? someone PLEASE help..

    I also have the flashing green light after I tried to power on the computer after a weeks vacation. Power switch does nothing. I took it to a repair shop where it worked perfectly.... brought it home and got the flashing green light again.

I've had the exact same problem. I guess the best solution is to start looking for a new computer. On the bright side your hard drive is probably still ok and you can save you data. http://erunways.com/

Sony Vaio VGC-RB576 motherboard fried


if you have problems with outages and surges, then the only way to protect electrical goods is by purchasing a surge protection socket extension. But you should check that your power options in control panel are set that on the shutdown drop down list the pc lists shut down and does not say restart. Also go into bios F2 or Del on boot up and look and see if time and date are correct, if not then the cmos battery needs changing (Cr2032 disc chaped on motheroard) then in advanced cmos settings, then look for 'ACPI', make sure this is enabled so as to support windows shutdown settings, then save settings and exit for a reboot.
