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

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.

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.

I have a sony Vaio N250e. It powers up, boots up and get to the windows desktop. It will stay there for about 2 minutes then it just turns off on its own. I did notice that the battery light blinks twice....

Does this occur when charger is also plugged in?

If it does then sounds like the CPU vent ports are clogged and CPU may be overheating,

Turn laptop upside down and look at CPU vents, if clogged simply use vacuum cleaner to clear.

Vaio will not turm on

you will most likely need to replace the dc jack, which is the port where your charger plug plugs into...

To test if your dc jack is bad... Remove the Battery, Plug the Power cord into laptop then attempt to power on... If no lights turn on, no fan spins.. your DC jack is bad...
DC Jacks Cost $6 to $10 but you need to find someone experienced to replace it, or you might end up with a dead motherboard as well..
