If it's still under warranty I'd send it to Sony. If not, it may be better to get it fixed locally. It's easier to have a face to face conversation and explain exactly what is going on. From what you've told us, it sounds like the power circuit on the mother board is bad.
Hope things go well for you on this one.

1. Has anyone installed 2Gb RAM memory in a Sony PCG-TR3A? please give details of memory specification. 2. Has anyone installed a HDD bigger than 40GB? please give me details of HDD specification.


Hi,
You can only upgrade the memory to 1GB in that model Vaio laptop.

The memory supported is DDR SDRAM which runs at 333MHz. There are 2 memory slots which support 1x512 module in each slot.
I recommend Kingston RAM as the manufacturer.

As for the HDD the laptop supports EIDE (IDE/ATA) hard drive. you can have anything up to 320GB. Seagate are excellent drives as well as Fujitsu.


Regards.

Sony PCG TR3A hard disk is pooched. Can it be fixed with 6oGB?


all hard drives run at the same speed, if its a sata drive data access is quicker but that is memory relient, you can repace the hard drive but you'd have to shop around for a good deal, i recomend seagate because they have a five year warranty on them, installing them is fairly easy you'll just have to install a brand new operating system as new hard drives come unformatted
