I would not risk it. The components are usually welded to the board, requiring very delicate work .Even if they manage to repair it (I doubt it), you would risk having other problems (like overheating) in the future. Save your money toward a new system, and try to sell the other parts (charger, memory, hard drive, battery, dvd) of your sony on ebay.

Good luck

Some motherboards are repairable depending on whats gone wrong with them, if you can get a description of what has gone wrong you can email ebay to see if they can fix it for you before you pay any money

I want break our vaio vgn-sz440 bios password.i forget it

BIOS password can only reset by changing Jumper settings on the Motherboard. For this you need to open your notebook. You have to be very cautious while doing this, if you are not comfortable doing this, take your notebook to a nearest Computer repair shop. You can refer videos on Youtube to achieve this as there is no other way aroud to reset BIOS password.

Let me know you need further assistance on this. Thanks

I have a sony vgn-z56gg laptop & have dropped it. Everything still works fine, however it needs a new casing etc as the screen is twisted & hinge has now come off the screen. Where can i get...

Pretty much, most places that repair computer would do it, the only reason they would say no is that they would have promblem ordering or finding the parts for it, otherwise places like bestbuy, office depot, staples would do it. It gonna cause alot more there, if you can find a local small certify computer rapair shop, they can do also. It's just going to the promblem of finding the parts to repair it that may cause them to say no. Otherwise try to get couple of quotes for repair and compare to a new laptop should you find it that it is cheaper to get a new one.

thats the problem with most repair shops, when they cant repair it, thats what they say. get another shop to test it for you. a second opinion is in order.
