Question about Sony VAIO VGN-SZ330P/B Notebook
Well guys, it sounds like motherboard trouble with your laptops.
Try this, try to press the power key and hold for about 30 seconds (after removing the battery). That'll clear the bios to regular settings.
If that doesn't work (which means bigger trouble), then you need to do the following. If your laptop is under warranty (since I don't suggest opening it up unless you know what you are doing) you are going to need to send it back to them, or contact the company you got it from. Next, you'll need some basic info. the motherboard is able to tell you stuff even if it can't boot.
Now the three lights seems and appropriate signal, but let's try pressing the Fn key (the function key which provides things like increasing the brightness and such when held and pressed with another button), and THEN while holding it, turning on your machine. It should give you some beeps, and some flashing lights. These are things you're going to need to record, feel free to turn the laptop off and on again if you can't catch it all. This is info you will need to tell the laptop company involved.
You could also try reseating the RAM chips, which simply involves using a jewelers screwdriver and flipping your laptop over and unscrewing a cover protecting the ram (it usually has vents and is somewhere in the center bottom of the laptop on newer models). If your laptop only has one slot down there we may need to check the top, tell me if it does and I'll walk you through it. Checking your Ram does NOT void your warranty, it's easy to replace. Once it's open, take the two plastic bits holding the chip in place and press outwards away from the chip on them until the chip magically pops up. Then, take the chip out, and put it back in the same way it came out (angle and everything), once in and snug, press it down until it magically snaps back into place, replace the ram cover, screw it down, and try turning the lappy on.
Hopefully this helps. Stay spicy and happy lappying!
