Problems booting Sony Vaio VGN N250E

I have a Sony VAIO VGN-N250E Notebook, purchased Jan 31, 2007. It is running Windows Vista Home Premium Edition. A few days ago, I was on the internet just surfing- running a couple of browsers and AIM but nothing out of the ordinary. The machine froze up for no apparent reason and wouldn't unfreeze. Using the main power button, I shut off the computer. When I attempted to power the computer back on, the battery light and the power light came on, however the CPU light and the LAN light would not come on. There was an initial click or two from the CPU and a very short flash of light from the CPU light indicator- but no further activity.

I'm assuming this means that my motherboard is gone. Am I correct?

    I removed the hard drive so I can get a hard drive enclosure and retrieve my data- the computer still will not start up, is doing the same exact thing.

    Is there a chance that it could be the PSU?

I have recently installed Windows 7 on my VGN-N250E. It does not recognize my sd-card. Does anyone know where i can find sd-card driver for win7 for sony vaio VGN-N250e?


Hi,

I checked the information and found that the computer does not qualify for a Windows 7 Upgrade from Sony. But as we have tried, Windows Vista drivers work with Windows 7 as the core for both the OS is same. I suggest that you download install Memory Card driver for Windows Vista from the below link to resolve the issue with the SD Card. I have also provided the link to download Sony Shared Library which you should install first.

My Sony VAIO VGN-N325E notebook came pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Edition. My question: If I wanted to replace the onboard 320gb hard drive would I have to purchase another copy of Windows Vista ?


Just use one of the cloning disk tools (Norton Ghost, Acronis e.t.c.) to make a copy from the one you have to the new one. Google for a program. I suggest you Acronis but it's not free.

"Windows 7 will come to the table, from the get-go, with support for all Vista-certified drivers. Compatibility with devices designed for Vista ensures that users will have a seamless upgrade/migration experience." (taken from softopedia.com)

This means that all the "vista compatible drivers" should work on win7 without any problems.

Vista Home premium drivers will work perfectly with Windows Vista Ultimate. When installing Vaio event service and Vaio Control center make sure that you run setup file as administrator. Right-click the setup file and select option "run as administrator". By reinstalling utilities this way they will work perfectly well
