Re: sony vaio

If you are talking about the battery only lasting 10 minutes when the pc is not attached to the A/C adapter, then the answer is most probably yes. It's time to get a new battery.

If you are talking about this happening when the A/C adapter is attached, then maybe not.

Let me know which situation you are experiencing and we can go from there.

Turning off

Perform power drain ( remove all accesories including the battery and the power adapter) press the power button for 1 minute.

Connect the power adapter only then turn on the computer - try using for more than 1 hour. If the computer does not shut down then the issue is the battery.

Run anti virus software.

If problem still persist it is a posible hardware issue. If you are still in warranty you can call sony and they can help you fix the issue for free.

Try pulling the battery out leave it unplugged to decharge the board for about an hour. Do not put the battery back in just the power adapter and reboot it. If successful shut down replace the battery plug it in and try replicate the issue. Sometimes they will hold a rogue charge on the board for a few minutes to a few hours.

Sony Vaio PCG-6h4l laptop turns off for no reason. While using laptop on batteries it works fine and does not power off while using. But while using with electricity the laptop turns off for no reason,...

It could be that the laptop disables it's battery when you connect it with the power supply. When the power supply then fails it won't have enough time to switch back to battery. You'd best first try another power supply, and post back here if that doesn't help.

Sony vaio pcg-grt170 when I push the power button, the green light and 2 yellow lights blink one time but the computer will not turn on. I tried taking the battery out, checked the power cord.

Perform these steps and the issue will be resolved if the issue is with the Static charges on the Mother board.

I recommend you use Power Drain procedure by following these steps:

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.
