Vaio vgn-fe770g spill/no power

I spilled coffee on it a month or so ago and it shut down instantly. immediately disconnected battery and let dry out for several days. plugged power in and get nothing. no charge light, no power on.
so i'm assuming i fried the mobo. would this normally fry the cpu as well? just wondering if i can get a new mobo and use the current cpu or if i need to get both?

Soda was spilled on sharp el1179p


do not power on the device, it is crucial that you leave it to dry and as soon as possible put it in a bag of rice. The rice will absorb the moisture in the device. You should give it about two weeks (the longer the better) and you should have completely removed all battery components at this point if there are any. After a generous waiting period of two weeks or so, take it out of the rice and give it a try. I spilled a full 8 oz cup of hot coffee RIGHT into my laptop keyboard and it immediately shut off but I followed the above steps and I am using it right now just fine and it is a year later. Good luck!

Keyboard dont type


No matter how careful you may be, knocking a cup of coffee or spilling a glass of soda over your keyboard may happen. This does not, however, mean the end of your keyboard. If you act quickly, you may be able to fix your wet keyboard to avoid any corrosion of its electronic components or any short circuit which might render it unusable. By following a few recommendations, you should be able to fix your wet computer keyboard.

Unplug the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any corrosion or short circuit. If you spilled water over your laptop's keyboard, turn your computer off by clicking on "Shut Down" on "Turn Off" in the start menu, unplug the power supply and remove the battery. Turn the keyboard upside down and shake it to remove most of the water from it. Take a hair dryer and set it to its lowest temperature setting. Use it to dry any water which might remain under your keyboard's keys. Wait at least 12 hours before plugging your keyboard into your computer again. If your computer is a laptop, wait 12 hours before turning it on again. For Other Liquids Disconnect the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any short circuit or corrosion. Turn your computer off by selecting "Shut Down" or "Turn Off" in the start menu, remove the battery and disconnect the power supply. Place paper towels on a table, turn the keyboard upside down and shake it over them to allow most of the liquid to fall down. Take a few clean paper towels and wipe the liquid off your keyboard's keys. To clean between the keys, you can also use cotton swabs with just a little bit of water. If the liquid which you spilled over your keyboard contained a high amount of sugar, such as soda or sugared coffee, you might have to remove some of your keyboard's keys to clean the surface under the keys with paper towels or swabs. You can do so by lifting them gently with a screwdriver or by using a key remover, which you can find in some IT stores. Wait at least 12 hours before using your keyboard again. If your computer is a laptop, wait the same length of time before turning it on again.

After liquid spill the laptop has to be disassemble and the motherboard inspected for liquid damage. In some cases cleaning the motherboard might fix the laptop.

Hullo, I spilled wine on my sony vaio


spilling the wine could have caused a surge to your battery or charger either one could be damaged but if your battery is reading full and powers off at random then it is probably your battery and needs to be replaced

Spilled coffee on D600 notebook, power supply turns off when plugged in after had the notebook cleaned. is my notebook not fixable?


When the power supply turns off when plugged into the laptop it is indicating that there is a short. Remove your battery and try connecting the power adapter again. If the problem persists your motherboard will most likely need to be replaced.
There are companies out there that will repair motherboards however if the laptop was on when the spill occurred there is little to know chance that the motherboard is repairable.

Sony VAIO VGN-FE770G only runs on AC power, battery not working


This looks like the system is not able to sustain itself on the battery power. I have a doubt here. Is it a new or an old laptop. Either Case we have to suspect the battery charging and battery condition. One another reason could be that the battery contact is not good. But this could be of the least chance as the manufacturing of such devices would be perfect in all standards. Lets check the battery power first.

A sony Vaio never operates if the battery is not detected or the battery is not charging, while the system is up and running, you can see a small picture of the battery in the system tray which is at the right bottom corner of the screen. Run your mouse over the same and you will find a tooltiptext message and you can see if the battery is charging or not. If not, your hardware has a problem. If its charging but the battery charge is not increasing, then you have a battery problem. If its a battery problem and that the system is under warranty, you can well get a replacement for free. Hope this resolves the issue. Good Luck.

I spilled a small amount of coffee onto the keyboard while the computer was in use. I immediately turned it upside down and dried it off. I cannot get it to power " on"


Don't power it on. If that is doesn't seem kind of all water proof kind. Take out the battery and the AC power supply. Turn the laptop upside down without closing the screen monitor and let the coffee be out. Dry it/or take it on a reputable shop( I may suggest).

Have it clean. Hope it doesn't fry something inside.

Please remove the Battery from the Battery bay and disconnect the AC Adaptor from the Notebook. Then, clean the metal contact in the Battery Bay and leave the Battery removed for half an hour. Next, connect the AC Adaptor to the Notebook and the power cable to a functional wall outlet and try to turn ON the Notebook. If the power LED on the Notebook doesn't glow then again disconnect the AC Adaptor and try removing and reinserting the RAM module. If the issue persists even after performing all the above steps then service will be required.

However, if the Notebook turns on after performing the above mentioned steps but the Battery is not detected then perform C: Drive Restore using the VAIO Recovery Center.

As per the specification published online, the Computer model VGN-N250E is preinstalled with the VAIO Recovery Center in the hidden partition of the Computer. You may use it to perform C: Drive Restore to restore the Computer to the original factory settings. Please make sure that the new Battery is installed in the Computer while performing the Complete System Restore.

Performing a C: Drive Recovery will erase all the data present in the C: Drive only and will reinstall the pre-installed Operating System, Applications and the original Drivers supplied with the Computer.

Please restart the Computer and keep on tapping the F10 key to access the VAIO Recovery Center. Next press the Enter key then select the "VAIO Recovery Center" option then follow the steps given in the link mentioned below to proceed with the C: Drive Restore.

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C473668

In the link given above, please click on the sublink "Restore C: Drive" to view further information on performing the C: Drive Restore.

Performing all the steps successfully should resolve the issue.
