    Response for Shaotim. No lights come on at all. There is no light on the power supply. Nothing happens when I push the power button.

    Response to shaotim: That's correct. No lights eitherway.

Im fairly confident then that the motherboard in your system has died, or at the very least one of the boards inside. It does happen have you tried searching ebay for a barebones system? It can be repaired and ebay is the cheapest place I knwo for parts or a barbones system that you can use in its place. The other options are to take it in for servicing, or buy another laptop, If you buy another laptop you will still have the drive you are using so you can get your datat ofit for the new system, if you get a barbones system you can use the best one and move everything over, or gut it and get the mainboard and what not out of it and repair the first.

That doesn't sound too good.

If it does not turn on, the battery is not the problem (it would work with the a/c adaptor)

Unfortunately, there is not much you can do. You will have to take it to a repair shop for a check up

Sony Vaio Model VGN-FS640/W does not show having a battery.


The main battery needs to be replaced, or the charging ciruit on the motherboard is not working, remove main battery get a stiff toothbrush and clean terminals in the laptop incuding the battery, if no change! check the device manager to see if battery is present, if no! reset bios to factory default.

Save Data if possible.

Use Restore System; Restore Computer to Factory "New" Condition.. Sont Vaios have a Key Prompt which you hold down while booting and the Replacement Software already on a Sector of the Hard Drive. Check THe Manuel for this OR CALL SONY CUSTOMER SERVICE AND JUST GIVE THEM THE MODEL NUMBER AND ASK THEM WHICH BUTTON YOU PUSH ETC TO RESTORE THE COMPUTER TO "FACTORY CONDITION"

SONY VAIO BATTERY CHARGING


This is not a problem, this is a designed function to increase battery life. To adjust this, go to "vaio control centre", and then power management. Inside this is battery care, here you can adjust the settings or de-activate this function.
