Question about Sony VGN-FZ430E/B Notebook
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.
