Not sure if you are still having problems, but the same thing happened to me with the same model. It is not that big of a problem. I am still using my computer. I have had it happen twice to me where the power and battery lights come on but the operating system does not boot. You have either one of two options. Either turn it on and just wait about an hour and it will finally turn on. Or you just just turn it on, wait five minutes, and remove the battery (while unplugged). Then turn on again. One of these has always worked for me. I actually had this happen more when the computer was newer but I have not had it happen for over a year. I don't like its a problem with the operating system, I think there is just a lack of response from the computer to actually initiate boot sequence.

The operating system is probably corrupted. If there is a file system and the OSID file is intact, it will try to boot up, but fail and end up not doing anything at all.
Hopefully you have a backup of your files:
You should reinstall the operating system. If the computer came with a restore disk (which it probably did), locate that and boot your computer from it. If it didn't, try booting up with system restore. I don't know how to do that on your computer because it varies from computer to computer.

Sony VAIO VGN-NS31M no display and no booting


Franciso: Have you tried using your laptop power adapter without your battery being in? You will save alot of money just using your power adapter when you are at home without your battery being in your laptop. I hope that you have a cooler fan under your laptop because it will help your laptop still cool. If the adapter doesn't help you will have to reinstall windows and load your programs again. If you need more help let me know. Cathann

I have no response from my Sony Vaio FZ-430e laptop. Power light comes on and nothing happens...no fan, no hard drive no dvd...no response whatsoever. Do I need a new mother board or could it simply be a...


This sounds like it may be a Power controller problem, (circuit that controls battery charging etc...) To fix this the mainboard usually needs to be replaced, which will mean that you will have to send it to SONY to be "serviced".

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-FJ3M/W does not boot.


Possible hard disk failure or hard disk controller failure.
if you feel confident remove the hard disk and replace - obviosuly make sure that there is not power running and remove the battery - replace hard disk then battery then power and try again.

Do you get any beeps? is the hard disk clicking? listen carefully to it and post your findings.
