Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FS550 Notebook
I was surfing the internet on my sony vaio laptop and it restarted on its own. Then I connected to the internet again and it shut off immediatly. I tried to turn the laptop back on, and the drives started up and the 3 lights (numlock, capslock, and scroll lock) came on and stayed on and the screen stayed blank. I know its not the backlight because I even had the geek squad to check it out and they said it was the motherboard also. Does anyone know how I find out what motherboard is compatible with my laptop and whats a good site to find cheap parts? Any help is appreciated.
It could be the motherboard but then it might be the processor. When it shut off like that it's possible that it overheated which may have damaged the motherboard or the processor or both. Laptop pars are hard to come by and what you do find is usually second hand. eBay is probably the quickest and easiest place to check. Look there for parts, but if you replace the motherboard and it still isn't fixed the processor is probably the culprit.
