Question about Sony VAIO Notebook
My Vaio will not stay on. I plug in my power cord and sometimes it will stay on, but only for, no more than 15 minutes. I thought it was my battery, but when I can get the power to start a charge, it will work for a few minutes and then shuts off. The power cord is brand new, so I can't fiugre out what might be the problem. Could it be the power port where the cord plugs into the laptop is maybe bad?
It might be your power adaptor !
I am not sure, but usually it should have a red/yallow led while charging and green when charged !
Read your manual.
Also, check power settings in control pannel.
There, you can find power schemes that turn off your laptop automatically when some time pass.
Set NEVER when plugged on power!
Check screen saver settings (and turn it off - NONE)
Also it should not turn off if there is any user activity!
At the end, if you are sure that there is no problem with your power unit, than checking and setting power OPTIONS in control pannel, should solve your proplem.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs
into the compute. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the
jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to
take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the
motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.
