Your SONY should respond to the following:

Look for the blue FN key, hold it down (use it like a shift key)
While holding it, look for a key, also printed in blue with a picture that is half sun/half moon. On my laptop is the F8 key. As you press the key watch the screen to see if gets lighter.

Good Luck!

I have a sony vaio model pcg-61611L. When I hit the power button it turns green and stays on but I cant get the screen to show a picture. I have taken the memory sticks out and tried them one by one but...

I have 3 of these laptop Pcg-61611l and all 3 are black screen on start up. Sony has a problem with this and is not saying any thing about it. What I do is turn on laptop let the green power bottom stay on ,walk away for 10 to 15 minutes then shut it down and restart you should see the three green lights by the power bottom flash twice and then your working again . Laptop will work fine until you turn it off. Repeat to power back up.

Cannot start Sony VAIO PCG-5J2L /Goes to black screen only

During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.

If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.

If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".
