    Thanks for the answer. I tried the hard drive externaly on another computer and it was working fine. I put another harddrive but the laptop did not respond. Just a 1 second of harddrive light was all I got. Is there anything I can do please help.

Possible hard disk failure or hard disk controller failure.
if you feel confident remove the hard disk and replace - obviosuly make sure that there is not power running and remove the battery - replace hard disk then battery then power and try again.

Do you get any beeps? is the hard disk clicking? listen carefully to it and post your findings.

Hi, I have a sony vaio vgn-fw265d and the last time I used it I put it to sleep but didn't connect it to any power source so the battery drained out. When I tried turning it back on, the light switched on...


Remove the battery and try to start it up with the AC power. If it's not working, after you try to boot up and the lights are on, press the power button for several seconds (10-15) and it should go off. Press the power button again and it should start.

Sony vaio vgn-fs8900p isn't booting


Most likely your hard drive has gone bad. It could be your RAM too. I know that you said you checked your ram one stick at a time. What if both sticks are bad? I would get some cheap (low MBs) sticks of ram that are compatible with your computer to see if your computer will start to run right with those in.

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.

My sony vaio vgn-fs285e will not switch on since this morning. Even if the AC adapter is plugged-in it still won't come on. None of the lights come on, it won't run with the battery pack or just AC power....


Hi,
To check if the problem is the power adaptor or the Vaio, just have a look at the charger itself and see if the green light on the adaptor itself is on?If yes, then more likely it is working fine. If no light, change the fuse in the plug and try again.
You can also try a static discharge on the Vaio. Please remove all external devices, unplug the adaptor and remove the battery. Put your finger on the power button and hold it for about 30 seconds. Then connect the power adaptor again and try to boot.

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.

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)?

VGN-NR220E won't boot up


Bad memory can cause a system to hang as you describe.
If it is accessible, remove the memory cards, swab them with cotton swabs and alcohol and try it again.
Don't put the cards back in while still damp if you use rubbing alcohol.
