No power to my Sony Vaio RX380ds. Already replaced power supply.

Computer is not getting any power. Power cords test okay, and I've replaced the power supply with a brand new official Sony power supply replacement. Still no power.

    Sounds like your motherboard needs to be replaced. But before we go that far is the power button plugged into the motherboard? What happened when the computer stopped working? (power outage, elecrical storm, anything)

Disconnect the power adoptor and remove the battery and hold down the power button for 10sec and than connect everything back again and that should work

I can just provide you the link where you can check the prices and the model itself. upgrading the power supply you can actually do that. specialy when you are not going to load hardware that has heavier power requirements then that's the time you need to upgrade the PS. Don't forget to get the model of the PS that you have. You can also visit any local computer shop. they can help you with this.

No power - not responding to on button

If there are on LED lights on in the front panel then either the power cord is faulty or the switch mode power supply is faulty.
Try a different power cord to determine if it is faulty.
Can you smell a burnt electrical smell from the fan grill at the switch mode power supply?
The only way to test if the switch mode power supply is to remove it from the desktop computer and take it to your friendly computer shop to get it tested.
If you do have electronic knowledge I would advise you not to attempt to test and try to repair this power supply.
If the switch mode power supply is faulty, then replace the switch mode power supply with another unit with the same or more wattage.

No power

Had the same problem after the electric went out due to a storm. When the electric came back on the computer wouldn't turn on. There was a light flashing on the Power Supply and on the mother board. I disconnected the large white Power connector from the motherboard, waited 15 seconds and plugged the connector back in, the light came on solid, press the on/off switch and the computer booted up and continued to work fine.
