Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FS640W Notebook

1 Answer

VGN-FS640W - Three green LED's come on but no boot up.

VGN-FS640W - Three green LED's come on and hard drive spins up but no VAIO screen or further activity. Eventually the HD access light goes out. There is one click that sounds like the DVD searching for media. Replaced the motherboard with no change in behaivior. I did get a full boot sequence on one occasion, but the next time, no luck. A few times it got to the VAIO screen before it locked up.
Any help would be appreciated.

What would be the probable cause of a sony vaio fs830/w of starting up & the 3 green leds on top stayed lit


You were FORMATTING it? Meaning... you were erasing the operating system? If that's the case, then... you have no operating system and the computer cannot boot up because it has no operating system to boot into.

SONY MXB-130 MS02 MOTHERBOARD DIAGRAM


Most laptops do not have a BIOS button to reset the BIOS settings.
To reset the BIOS just remove the BIOS battery and wait for approx.20 mins for the battery charge to discharge then replace the battery.
OR
After removing the BIOS battery just short out the battery terminals on the motherboard with a paper clip, the replace the BIOS battery and go into the BIOS setting to change the Date and Time etc.

There isnt a fuse for the LCD screen.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

No video \green led near keyboard, hdd drive light indicator and wireless lights turn on. green power indicator on ad adapter, tried two different batteries. cpu fan not spinning...this thing will boot...


You can try doing these:

Clearing the CMOS, i.e. Unplug power cord and take out battery, then put them back in.

Cross check the components such as heatsink/fan, video card, and processor. It is never good to have a heatsink with the fan not spinning.

Check to see if the heatsink is cold, warm or hot. It shouldn't be cold OR hot.

Sony Vaio vgn-fs640w does not power up nor does it


I went to the Sony Vaio support site for your model specifically and they mention a battery recall. There is a place on the site requiring specific information about your system and your battery to see if you are eligible for the recall. I would try this route to see if it resolves your issue. If not, I would say it is a blown transistor and you need to replace the motherboard. This means buying a new system, as Sony VAIO laptops are very proprietary and hard to find parts for.

Good Luck,

Coloured vertical lines down lcd screen


To isolate the issue, i strongly recommend to connect the notebook to the external monitor by VGA port which had BLUE colored on the notebook. So that if it is normal then you need to confirm the issue is with the LCD display.
