Sony vaio will not turn on

I was on my laptop on a programme and it turned off for no reason. I had no device plugged in but my charger was plugged in. I tried turning on the laptop again but nothing happened except the power and the battery indicator blinked. I went for about an hour but when I got back i tried again but only the battery indicator blinked. Please help!!!

    When I try to watch "The Turn of the Screw" on ITV player I just keep getting a message saying the programme is unable due to "technical problems" and to "try again later". However I have tried several times but to no avail. I contacted ITV player last night and just got an acknowledgment email saying they would try to get back to me within 24 hours but they never did

My sony vaio PGC-3E2L wont turn on, not even when i plug the charger. The only thing it does is turn on the battery and power lights only when i press the power button but turn off when i release it

Take out the battery and try with just the charger, Batteries for computers have regulators in them and when the batteries die, the computer wont boot.

Sony Vaio Model VGN-FS640/W does not show having a battery.

The main battery needs to be replaced, or the charging ciruit on the motherboard is not working, remove main battery get a stiff toothbrush and clean terminals in the laptop incuding the battery, if no change! check the device manager to see if battery is present, if no! reset bios to factory default.

My sony vaio charger is got pulled out one day by kids running around, and when I went to plug it back in it would only work if i have it a certain way. I went out and bought a universal charger that said...

You mentioned that when you plugged in back the charger, it worked if you try moving it right? chances are, the problem could be with the charging pin itself of the laptop. there might be a loosening due to the sudden pulling out of the charger..

Laptop wont turn on

Make sure that your battery is connected and your charger is plugged into both the computer and the wall.

No power

The first thing that you need to do is isolate if it is the battery causing it, the charger or the computer itself. Remove external devices connected to the laptop. Try to remove the batteries first and then plug in the charger and see if this will turn on the machine. If it doesnt work, use a different socket and verify if you see any lights on the charger brick. Normally there is one. If it doesnt work, you need to contact the manufacturer. They will usually replacee the charger first before the motherboard or the batteries.

I have sony vaio vgn a215z and volume buttons don't work

if the function key of your keyboard not working, the primary reason is the chipset driver of your mainboard not installed. you need to load your cd/dvd driver to your cd/dvd rom then you can find the list of drivers and select the chipset driver click it and follow screen instruction after installation restart and done. be sure to locate the chipset driver base of your OS.

Vaio VGN-FZ340e freezes without reason!

Possibly you have a programme running in the background that is causing the freezes, could be a screensaver. i think at sometime microsoft will issue an update that will fix this problem.
