Question about Sony VAIO GRX550 Notebook

Sony Vaio wont boot

I have my laptop for a long time. Suddenly it stopped working and most of the time I can't even both it. I called sony support and they could not help me fix it over the phone and said I would have to send it for repair. The shipment and the repair will cost me a lot of money, I was wondering if there is a simple fix for this problem if not I would rather buy a new laptop and not fix this old one. Any help will be highly appreciated!

Hi Lisa, I am not an expert and I am also new at this site. But I believe I have a solution for you! I had this problem before with a similar model. It is usually a problem with the memory chip or memory slot: 1. Remove one of the memory chip 2. replace it with a sony compatible memory chip. * not all memory chips works with sony so you have to make sure! If it is the slot: 1. compare it with the working slot to see if there is any difference. 2. If there is a bended solder try to bend it back to the correct position. 3. If you can't find the problem you might want to buy a larger memory chip and work with only one slot. Good luck

When i start using my laptop , suddenly white screen and forcible shutdown,.


It sounds like it's overheating, make sure the airways are clear of dust and listen for the sound of the fan inside, this could have failed..
if the processor overheats it automatically cuts out and what you describe is exactly that..
good luck !

Web stop working,and i cant found to set anymore


hello, if your web suddenly stops to work and has been working before then you need to check a lot of things. 1) Is there network on the computer system, i mean internet access, 2)If there is internet access,then check if your web browser is not corrupted, by trying different web browser e.g opera mozilla firefox, google chrome and the likes 3)It might even be that your OS is corrupt and you need to RE-install

Hm, maybe your bios battery is dead. Try to buy a new one, and boot than boot it. A bios battery is usually under the keyboard.
