Best to get a new power button to keep it on and off check the power settings and make sure your computer can goto sleep so it will act like its turning it off to save battery.

Sony Vaio Vgn-bx61mn - how do I boot it up without using the power button? I disabled it by mistake and now can't turn it on. Thanks

Value of turning off is 0 and value of turning on is 1, which we can't disabled unless motherboard is damage or power cable have been unplug.
Try to find your product disassemble guide from the google search or youtube and plug your power cable. If motherboard is damage we need to think something else.

Stop error on sony vaio vgn-nw235f

There are multiple possible reasons for your problem:
1. virus
2. hard-drive malfunctions
3. OS malfunctions
4. memory failure

Try to install an antivirus and do a deep scan. You should pay attention to a boot sector virus.

If this doesn't help, do a back-up of your data, format your hard disk and re-install a fresh OS.

If this doesn't help either, try changing the RAM memory.

If that doesn't help either, it means your hard disk's boot sector is damaged. There are solutions for this too, but I think there is a big chance you won't get to this point.

Hello, I cleaned out my sony vaio VGN-A790 fan and after having done so it doesnt boot up, screen doesnt turn on and fan doesnt spin. however the motherboard and hard drive is getting power. all...

The first thing that I would try to do is to reseat your ram modules. Remove both ram modules, blow out the ports in case of dust, and then put them back in again securely. If this doesn't correct the problem, try it again. If the problem still persists, then you need to disassemble the laptop and reassemble it, checking for loose connections. There's also the possibility that an improperly placed screw is shorting out the motherboard because it's too long for the hole and is touching something, or that the heatsink isn't secure on the CPU.
