The issue may appear due to several reasons such as Windows Update or any recent hardware or software changes in the computer.

1. Please reset the BIOS to default values.

2. Try booting the computer to Windows in safe mode by pressing the F8 key at startup.
3. If the issue persists, please check if the hard drive is listed with its volume (size) eg: 500GB in the BIOS main menu. Press F2 key at startup to enter BIOS.
4. If the hard drive is listed, perform a system recovery using the recovery console/partition by pressing the F10 key at startup.
5. If issue persists, please use the recovery discs or contact the sony service team to get the computer repaired.
The issue may be related to the operating system files. Getting the recovery partition re-imaged will be the best possible resolution.

You have a bad NVIDIA IC. You can go to sony US for the free repair of your laptop. Don't worry I already talk to sony's service assistant and told me it is free.

Blank screen laptop

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!

Fter power switch put on it show blank screen and no sound only battery and power indicator is on but hard drive indicator is off. does that is a cause or some hardware problem?

it's possibly a hardware problem but you should make sure it isn't a software problem by putting in your system restore cd and restoring the DLL that you deleted, it could be an important system file. If it is a hardware problem, the first thing to try is taking out your memory and sticking it back in place, make sure it's clean and put it in there tight.
