Question about Sony Computers & Internet
I will start with an obvious question - Did you plug it back in? You don't mention this in your question.
Now, presuming that you did plug it back in, I will offer some other suggestions.
Are you sure the outlet it is plugged into is working properly? You can tell easily by connecting something like a small lamp; if the lamp works then the outlet is live, if not, try using another outlet. It is also possible that you need to check where the other end of the plug goes into the back of the computer; make sure it is pushed in as far as it can reasonably go.
If none of these do the trick, try disconnecting the power cable from the computer entirely. Then press and hold down the "Start" button for a period of at least 10 seconds - this will release any static buildup that may be in the computer or power cable.
If you have another power cable, try switching it out with the present one. It is rare for these to fail, but there is a slight chance. If you don't have one, you may try using one from another computer component BUT, only if it matches exactly.
Now, the last and worst thing that could have happened - there is a possibility, very slight, that you may have fried your power supply. Power supplies are not as expensive as one might think ($40 - $100), depending on what type and maximum power (wattage) your computer needs. If you are at all handy with taking on such a project, go ahead and do so. Just take down the info about the power supply from the label on it and write down your computer make and model and go to a computer store and buy one yourself.
Otherwise, if none of these help you, your best bet is to take the whole computer to your local computer repair shop.
