Question about Sony VAIO VGC-JS130J/S 20.1-Inch All-in-one PC (2.5 GHz Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5200 Processor, 4 G... PC Desktop

1 Answer

Monitor goes blank randomly for a couple of seconds, then back on

I bought a Sony VGC-JS130J on 4 March 2009. Since then I have had a service technician out, sent the desktop back to Sony repair (San Diego, CA), and had a service technician out a second time . The original problem still exists - the screen randomly goes blank for a couple of seconds and then returns (no data lost). The first service technician replaced the mother board, the repair center replaced the hard drive, the second technician replaced the hard drive.

Right after I turn it on it doesn't even go to the desktop page and then it turns off completely. Is it a problem with the fan?

Is the fan running? if there is no fan running, then that is your problem, but you should check your RAM first as this is more likely.

Screen says no operating system

That means the system cannot locate your operating system on the disk for some reason. Make sure you have nothing in the DvD drive when you turn the computer on.

Desktop doesn't power on

See my guide entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

However since your computer is a module compact design and not a standard ATX layout it may need to go in for repair.
Either a short-circuit or damaged power supply. However I fear a dead mainboard.

Sorry for the news!

Take Care!

Monitor goes blank after a couple of seconds.

The problem can be the backlight inverter board or bad capacitors in the power supply section, I have seen bad soldering of the wires to the lamps are bad also.

Do you mean after windows has booted you have a blank screen?
Boot into windows in safe mode (by pressing F8) during the boot up process.
When booted go into device manager and remove any video drivers under display adapters, if it asks to delete the files as well answer yes.
Reboot into normal mode and let windows find the driver for you.

Flickering Screen/Faded Colors

It sounds like a problem with the video card, whether it be on-board or a card. See if you or a friend has a spare one laying around and try that one instead. If it's not the video card, try a different monitor.
