Two things to check,remove and reseat the memory, also remove the battery and run on AC only . Then try an external monitor . Still not working then most likely is a bad motherboard.

Sony Vaio VGN-SZ18GP Windows 7 shutdown problem .... when I shut down .... it gets stuck on the screen of shutdown but the "loading circle" is still running


This can be a sign of a memory failure, either the RAM is not clearing or the hard drive is on its' way out. Hold the power button down for 6 seconds for a "hard shutdown". Then restart and see if the problem persists.

Then replace the Keyboard.

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2008/01/07/service-manuals-for-sony-vaio-laptops-notebooks/

In the above link where it states in bold letters -
Service manuals for Sony VAIO laptops and notebooks,

,left-click on - Get it here - to the right of VGN-AR.

This Service Manual is in PDF file format. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name, (VGN-AR), it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

Not your laptop, but perhaps this will give more guidance, in removing and replacing the Keyboard,

2) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-asus-n53s-laptop-fix-dc-power-jack/

Just follow the steps up to removing the Keyboard. These are listed just to give you more info on replacing a Keyboard, not disassembling the entire laptop.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

[ WOW, that Keyboard is expensive! Suggest you look around for a better deal. I just posted that example to give you info. Average price SHOULD be no more than $40 to $50. Ebay? ]

VAio VGN-FS742 Screen does not display


Try to remove the battery, remove AC adapter, and press and hold power button for 45 sec. reinsert battery, and Plug and try again, if that doesn't solve it, you may need to try to change memory first, (cheapest) or the motherboard or CPU.

Please give good rating if this helps your issue, Thanks

What is the average price for the Sony Vaio VGN-AR230g?? what is the difference between that sony vaio and the Sony Vaio VGN-AW190? which would be more recommendable?


Briefly:-
The Sony AW models only came out in October 2008, whereas the AR series started back in early 2007.

There are a great many AR models, and you can judge their degree of sophistication by the last letters of the model numbers. As I remember these last letters are E, M, S and Z, E being pretty basic and Z most highly featured.

The S and Z models tend (but do check this!) to have higher screen resolutions, viz 1920 x 1280 or something of that sort, whereas E and M have fewer pixels. The hard disc sizes vary from about 300 to 640 GB, going up the scale, and also the graphics cards vary, the best possible (on the Z models) being NVidia 7600 or 8600 GT.

All the AR laptops are big, about 3.7 kg weight, with 17" screens. They all have 2 gigabytes of memory apart from the very latest S and Z models, summer 2008 onwards, which have 4 gigabytes.

ARs now (March 2009) are officially discontinued, but you may still find them on line. Prices range enormously, from about £600 to about £1600. They were very well reviewed in their time, though some people disliked the keyboard, which is rather small.

The AW series so far as I know includes only 2 models, one at about £1400 which is very similar to the Z series AR except for being quite a different shape - widescreen, 18.6 inches diagonal and abou 1000 x 1900 pixels - with a higher spec graphics card, NVidia 9600, and another which is similar but about £1000 dearer, because it has a partly solid state disk.

That information is the fruit of my own recent exploration of this topic - I ended by buying a Z series AR. Hope this helps!

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.
