    Hi, I went to the Microcenter and they checked my adapter and it was working.

    I was charging battery all night before the morning I turned on my laptop who was working for 15 min and then turned off byitself.

    I wish I could solve the problem , cause I reali like my Laptop and I 've never experienced problems with it before and I bought it last year.

    Hi ,again ....check your power adapter see if a light comes on (if it has a light on it)it sounds to me that the battery was in the middle of charging hence 15 mins of power and your adapter had failed.Or if you know someone that has a spare battery, try that on your laptop.I have come across this problem a number of times.

    Hi it now sounds like motherboard componant failure,if there is no light even when you plug in the adapter then the motherboard has failed,try lightly wiggling the plug that goes into the laptop dc socket and see if there is any lights on.

It's possibly overheating. If so, you can clean the cooling fins on the heatsink, and/or sit the unit on a cooling "plate"; they usually have a USB plugin to power their fans.

My sony vaio vgn-cr120e won't turn on. The adapter is working.

Perform power cycle. Disconnect all power sources, battery and power cord. Press power button for 5 secs. Reconnect power and start unit again. Do you see VAIO? Do you enter BIOS by holding F2 as soon as you press power button? If not then its probably hardware related, i mean needs service. Otherwise if you see any of what i mentioned above try turning off and then on and pressing F8 for safe mode or repair your computer options and then try system restore from accessories menu or F10 for full recovery with data loss (Restore C drive)
