Sony Vaio Loses Power, with both adapter AND Battery..
I have a sony vaio laptop, vgn-a600p. When we have a power outage, the battery and laptop loses all power. I have learned to unplug the laptop at night. However I forgot to the other night, and we had a short power outage. This is the second time for this problem. What happens is the whole computer loses power, even though there is power to the computer, have checked with an electrical thingy to make sure there is power to the laptop. I can't boot up the laptop period, with or without the battery, even after letting it "die" completely and trying to recharge the battery or coming up on just the adapter without the battery. The last time this happened, I was told I had to recycle the power?? Can you help me with this? Thanks.

My P1i appears completly dead after running Update Service. I've tried removing the battery, fully charging the battery etc. When i run Update Service again it just says my phone is up-to-date. any suggestions? Update only says "No new software is available for your phone. Your phone already has the latest available software installed."
firstly check with the adapter if its working fine ( connet the adapter to the phone and check if the color of the ligt changes and also check if its able to charge by observingf the battery meter on the phone)
Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Fixed it. All I needed to do was update the software drivers on my laptop. I have a sony vaio, so I looked up the software drivers they had online and downloaded them. After I installed them it worked flawlessly.
The device doesn't exactly work like a computer...
It needs battery power to "remember" what the user does. When you remove the battery, you let it forget everything.
It's like how your car stereo loses it's memory channels whenever they do battery related work.
What I would HIGHLY suggest, is set Activesync to do a full backup EACH TIME the device connects (it's in Tools, Backup).
THEN, when he loses the information, you do a full restore.
That being said -- to do a "reboot" just push the reset button (small hole on bottom left side grip) with the stylus.
If you want a more thorough reboot, it's safe to just take the battery out for a few seconds. I do this about once a day.
