Question about Computers & Internet
Greetings all, I have a Sony Vio Model PCG-GRV670. Its about 2 years old. It will not boot at all. Get it to turn on, fans come on and then nothing. Its like it is not getting to the BIOS to start it up. I located the 2 memory chips and swapped them (thinking that if there was a bad section in one of them I would be able to get "thru" the start-up). NO luck with that. Now I am trying to get to the CPU and reseat it, hoping that "Chip-Creep" has loosened the connection that I need. I have a good, charged battery and have removed all of the externally connected USB devices. 1. Any Idea how/where to get into the CPU? 2. Next move...? Thanks, Bill PS: I am trying the Sony web site also... Ours will start IF the battery is out...if battery is in...it won't boot up. Also tried a new battery - same result. Works fine plugged in w/o battery installed.
