    Power problems can be checked visually to help determine the problem. In a properly working power supply, the power light will be green. If the light is orange, the supply is not totally bad but the flow of electricity is not getting through completely. Finally, if there is no light at all, the unit is most likely dead. A simple and relatively cheap ($25 or so) power supply tester plugged in at the end of the power supply cable that connects to the motherboard will tell you if the unit is bad. Finally, check to ensure that the plug is seated firmly to the power unit and that the wall outlet is not the culprit by plugging in something to the same outlet that does work- lamps are great for this.

    1. Check the powercord running into the back of the computer.
    2. Check the Powerbar to see if the computer is plugged in.
    3. Check to see if the powercord/powerbar is plugged into the wall socket.
    4. Ask around if there were any thunder storms in the area, You might have a blown power supply.

Computer wont turn on after lightening strike and i cant find the reset button on the inside of my sony vaio pcv-rx753. i have reset it twice in the past but now i must be blind. any ideas?

Those internal things are CMOS reset. that won't help you. but try this. Unplug the computer for a while, while cylcing the power button, then plug it back in. The power supply has an internal circut breaker and this will hold open as long as the power is still applied. once drained it will close and if it is still good you should be able to start it.

Hi there.
Choose "LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION" if it still won't boot up try "SAFE MODE" and perform a system restore and take the computer back a week or so.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Sony Vaio PCV-RS710G wont start up

one of the files in the system32 directory in the windows folder is corrupt, the files in the system32 folder contains vital files for the boot procedure, try to start the machine in "safe mode" by pressing F8 after the sony boot screen, if it allows you into the operating system you will need to choose "system Restore" take the time back to at least a week before your problems started DO NOT CREATE A RESTORE POINT

My computer shut off and won't come back on

Most likely your CPU is overheating. Download speedfan from this link. Speedfan monitors the temperature of your CPU. Note the temperature when the PC shuts off on its own. Let me know if this is helpful.

You have a warranty. You should contact the appropriate people. Do not try to fix this yourself. If you return the machine for service, ask them to get any data off of it that you need. It is possible that your drive has crashed.
