SOURCE: VGC-VA1 battery repacement

There will be a battery on the motherboard. It will look like a watch battery about the size of a quarter. It should pop out easy.

Is your computer not even loading the manufacturer's screen?

Some TV's don't have a VGA input. S-Video cable is more common. Look on the back of your computer an see if you have an S-Video jack. If you have a TV compatible output on your computer, such as an S-video jack, just take an S-video cable and connect it to your computer and your TV. If you do not, then attach your VGA end of your adapter to your computer and use the RCA, S-video or Component Video cable to attach to your TV. After you've made all the connections, make sure you are on the correct TV video input. Press the input button on your TV or remote until you see your computer's signal.

SOURCE: CPU Fan Doesn't Spin

First time that I had heard of a Sony Vaio VGC-LS1, so I had to go take a look. Pretty Cool!

I can only tell what I think from a tech standpoint of view on it's processor fan.

1.This computer is housed in a housing that incorporates the LCD screen also. It's set up just like a laptop, except the LCD screen is in the body. (Housing)

This means you not only have the heat of the processor when it's running, you also have the heat of the LCD screen.
Plus it's all packed into one tight 'box'.

Processors give off a lot of heat by themselves. If they aren't kept to a certain thermal limit, they will burn up. Literally! Like ON FIRE!

When a processor goes beyond that thermal limit, there is a built-in Fail Safe feature that turns the processor off.

In ANY computer I've seen, or worked on, the processor fan is constantly spinning. As the load for the processor increases, so does the heat given out by the processor, and the fan spins faster.

It is my contention that you have a bad processor fan. I would at least ask a tech in your area, and see if this is so.
If your computer is turning off on you while you are using it,
you have a bad processor fan.

The first thing I would do is clean the CPU cooling fins by blowing out all the dust and debrie, and then make sure all your cooling fans are working.

I went to Sony and typed in your particular model and added mouse at the end and got some results.There are some refurbished ones but I would never recommend those.The one i do see is $30,probably plus shipping too.Do notebook mouses have a smaller plug attachment or something?You said you searched online.I would try office depot or staples if you already haven't and there is one near you.You can call and ask rather than drive there.Also,optical mouse is the best.So much better than the rubber roller,well worth it's weight in gold.Anyhow here is the link.Good luck!
