Hi, My battery for the laptop model no. PCG-4G1M has stopped recharging and I must leave the battery charger plugged into the mains at all times, which defeats the point of wifi. I cannot find the above laptop replacement battery of the same model can you help me find the best (and cheapest) alternative? Thanks jo

On your keyboard there should be a fn key (left down) you can use this to activate different functions. try a combination with one of the Fkeys in the same color where it says a signal or a transmitting icon. if there is no such icon, go to programs-> search for bluethoot suite-> make sure it is configure.
The charger may be bad, will it charge the battery? a common problem is the DC jack in the laptop breaks connection on the motherboard internittent operation or no power and shut down. If you can sub the charger that will tell if the power supply is bad or the problem is in the laptop. If the computer is the issue I recommend a professional because it will require extensive parts removal.
I've just had this problem but managed to solve it.
Unscrew all the screws on the underneath, where the arrows indicate.
Then, to remove the screw in the centre of the laptop that's holding it all together, hold down the Escape and F1 key and you will see a small clip holing the keyboard down, put a screwdriver in there and push the clip back. Do the same for the clips behind the F5, F12 and Insert key.
Once you do that the keyboard will slide down and out and you can get to the last screw. Unscrew that and you can take off the top of the laptop.
When taking it apart you will detach the 2 ribbon cables from the motherboard. Take not of where these came from so you can put them back later.
My problem was that the HDD cable has popped out, giving me a n error on booting of 'Operating System Not Found'.
