"pressing the power button on and off it gets on", is a typical problem for these boards.

Ridiculously, if you leave it alone for about 3 months it will start right up!

I suspect cooling fan is intermittent (sticky) and damages ram and possibly other on-board components from the excess heat.

For your video problems it sounds like it really got too hot!
(Fan cools both processor and on-board video chip, memory is on other side of the damaging heat).

Backup your data and restore the laptop to original condition with the disks that come with it

if that dosnt work you may need to have your ram checked or replaced.

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)

My vgn-fs810/w laptop is not powering up. Battery,


Motherboard is faulty. You can try removing the hard drive and dvd drive to make sure those aren't shorting out the motherboard. You can also try each memory stick to make sure neither one is shorting out the motherboard.

Laptop will not boot, Sony Vaio VGN CR220E, lights come on, don't hear the Hard drive start up, however. I get the clunks from the CD drive, but that's all.


Hi,
Such problems happen when you have either faulty RAM or faulty Mother Board. Repairing MotherBoard Chip is a costly affair but replacing RAM is convenient and most probable solution.

No Power ON -


It seems to be a hardware problem but you can try this.

Remove the battery from the laptop and remove it from the main power too. Then press and hold the Power button for 10 seconds to release any flea power. Then reinsert the battery and try to turn it on.

If this does not work, you may have to contact vendor for hardware.

VAio VGN-FS742 Screen does not display


Try to remove the battery, remove AC adapter, and press and hold power button for 45 sec. reinsert battery, and Plug and try again, if that doesn't solve it, you may need to try to change memory first, (cheapest) or the motherboard or CPU.

Please give good rating if this helps your issue, Thanks

Sony Vaio VGN-N250E/W Not Booting/Responding


Take the battery and power supply out and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This will reset your hardware settings. Your backup battery isnt your problem. Does your battery light turn on when charging? Does your keyboard lights light up when it runs for a second (try pressing caps lock)?
