There is an issue with the vga port on 2006 - 2007 sony vaio laptops. It doesn't push enough power to samsung lcds. There are all sorts of complicated solutions suggested by all sorts of people. Don't waste your time. Get yourself a connection cable with gold contacts and you'll be straight. It costs approx. $33.99. I got this one and it works fine (and I have a weak-*** TZ):

SOURCE: DIP SWITCH BIOS RESET POSITIONS SONY VAIO VGN-fs660

Hello,
There are 2 ways you can reset your bios2_bing.gif.

1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in2_bing.gif your system. Your reset is now complete

2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your reset is now complete


This is a great troubleshooting2_bing.gif step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will depending on the problem.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

Vaio vgn-fs790 will not power on


if your motherboard isnt getting the power it needs it very well may be one of these two things. First i could be a bad connection on the board which you can't do anything about. and Second you may be connection the cords from the power supply to the motherboard incorrectly.

Make sure everything is connected properly and then try again. If your motherboard does turn out to be bad then you will need to replace it from sony try to get it returned and but a better system. alot of sites can custom build you one and not restrict what you can upgrade with. For example Cyberpower or Ibuypower.
(thats if you just bought it)

My sony vaio vgn-fs285e will not switch on since this morning. Even if the AC adapter is plugged-in it still won't come on. None of the lights come on, it won't run with the battery pack or just AC power....


Hi,
To check if the problem is the power adaptor or the Vaio, just have a look at the charger itself and see if the green light on the adaptor itself is on?If yes, then more likely it is working fine. If no light, change the fuse in the plug and try again.
You can also try a static discharge on the Vaio. Please remove all external devices, unplug the adaptor and remove the battery. Put your finger on the power button and hold it for about 30 seconds. Then connect the power adaptor again and try to boot.
Regards,
Purito

Sony vaio pcg-grt170 when I push the power button, the green light and 2 yellow lights blink one time but the computer will not turn on. I tried taking the battery out, checked the power cord.


Perform these steps and the issue will be resolved if the issue is with the Static charges on the Mother board.

I recommend you use Power Drain procedure by following these steps:

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

Sony vgn-s1xp won't power up


Hi

Follow the procedure below to troubleshoot no power or the VGN-S1XP (VGN-S360) does not turn on.

While following this procedure, note the LED status at each step. This will provide additional information for further troubleshooting.

NOTE: Some computers are designed with hooks above the LCD screen that secure the lid when closed. A switch inside the holes below the touchpad [picture attached] detects when the lid is closed and latched. If the switch is stuck, the computer may not turn on properly. Check to make sure the switch is working properly.

Connect the AC adapter into a known working AC outlet and to the DC jack on the notebook.

NOTES: Do not connect the AC adapter to a surge protector or extension cord. If the DC jack on the computer is loose or damaged, the computer may require service. Some AC adapters have a POWER LED indicator and can be confirmed as receiving power by ensuring the LED is lit. If the AC adapter is damaged or the LED is not lit when plugged into a working AC outlet, the adapter must be replaced.

1. Attempt to turn on the computer. If same, press and hold the Power Switch for 15 seconds and try again.
2. If issue persists, remove the battery; disconnect the AC power adapter; press and hold the Power Switch for another 15 seconds.
3. Connect the AC power adapter. Attempt to turn on the computer. If the computer turns on without the battery, connect and charge the battery for 24 hours.
4. Disconnect all external devices that are connected to the computer. These devices include, but are not limited to, a modem, floppy disk drive, network connection, USB device, printer, keyboard, or mouse. Attempt to turn on the computer.
5. If issue persists, remove any additional Random Access Memory (RAM) that was installed in the computer and attempt to turn on the computer.
6. If same, remove all RAM and attempt to turn on the computer. Note beep codes and pattern.
Ensure to remove battery and disconnect AC before opening up the laptop to remove RAM. Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) precautions should also be adhered to.

NOTES: The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required. (In this case, the system board and or other parts may likely be faulty.)
