There are probably some corrupt files on the harddrive or there is damage on the hard drive. I would suggest to try using the windows setup cd or sony recovery cd to restore the system back to normal, if the problem is not solved by that then you most likely have a hardware problem which is most likely in the harddrive, might have to replace it, they don't cost much.
if you press f8 in start up to get the advanced startup menu, select safe mode.
start in safe mode and login
press start -> now run -> type in Cmd -> Type in the shell window -> chkdsk /F /X /R C:
if asked select Y to perform the operation on next start up.
see if the problem is solved.

SOURCE: Laptop Battery won't charge
One thing you can check is the battery contacts on the laptop. You'll notice small metal contact points where you install the battery. clean those and make sure they are 100% dust free. IF there is any kind of dust build up or corrosion on the contact points they will not work correctly.
Also check for any physical damage to the contacts.
Please rate as "very helpful" if this helps your situation & i'd love feedback. ^_^

Try removing / swapping / reseating the memory.
Try booting with one stick only, if the top slot doesn't work, try booting the bottom slot. Try both sticks.
Let me know what happens.

Testimonial: "First step in a series to diagnose. On the journey. Useful thanks."
How about this step, try to turn off the laptop itself. Remove the cables and battery just like what you did before, then press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Then, reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop and then turn on the computer itself. If the laptop restarts, shuts down or freezes with the AC power cables, two things that you should seriously consider. It might be the power cable itself, AC cable port or the circuitry going to the motherboard. And since you have cleaned out the fan and heat sink, you have isolated that problem. Have you plug-in another power cable on your laptop? If yes, then check if it works. Otherwise, the main issue is that the AC port is loose or the circuitry of AC adapter going to the motherboard is not not working. You can re-open the unit and check the circuitry from the AC port going to the motherboard. You may check the circuitry from AC port to the power supply if it is ok. If symptom persist, please contact your local dealer...
