This is a common problem and probably the hardest problem to try and solve in an email because it could be so many things. First thing to do is listen for any sounds when trying to start it. If it has a buzzing or hard drive sound or not? Does it get warm? If none of these and its totally dead, its probably the power supply. You can get one from the manufacturer and replace it by opening the case.

My sony vaio won't connect to the internet


We would need more information. You might be connecting via wireless and there is a function key or wireless turn on switch on your lap top. I would have you refer to your service manual as you left no model information.

It shut down automatically and won't turn on after that.


The computer/laptop is heated up too much on the same place. You have to wait about 5-10 minutes if it automatically closes, so it it gets cold.

Sony vaio vgn-nr285E battery won't hold a charge


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My laptop won't boot up. I tried to boot it up with Norton Bootable Recovery Tool, still same problem. I keep getting a black screen with a hyphen blinking on the upper left of the screen?


Most of the time this "hyphen blinking" means your hard drive is faulty. fingers crossed this isnt what has happened to your laptop.
try... turning off your laptop completely... turn it on and then immediately start tapping f10 at the top of your keyboard. tap tap tap taptap taptap taptap taptap taptap tap untill.......
you should get a option for "Vaio recovery environment", you should be able to go through this "built in" recovery and not lose any data.
good luck!

My computer won't turn on i can get to the internet because it has an internet button but the main part of the computer won't turn on


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

Hi i have a vostro 1520 dell laptop there is a problem that some strange 1.my laptop when just full battery is connected to it won't turn on but when i press 20 to 30 sec the turn on key and...


First 2 of your problems are due to the fact that your laptop enters hibernation (or hybrid sleep in windows 7) and windows cannot restore your last saved state. The 3rd problem indicates you have windows problems (bad/not updated drivers, filesystem corruption, application issues). I would suggest you to reinstall windows.

CANNOT TURN ON, NO SIGNS OF LIFE


Disconnect the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter. If you laptop still won't turn on then that means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
