Sony Vaio PCG-K86P laptop


Having a problem booting my Sony Vaio PCG-K86P laptop, power indicator lights up but screen does not display anything. Have tried Sony's solution ie., unplugging AC adaptor, removing battery leaving off for about 1 min then inserting batt and AC power. This does not solve problem. I found that removing battery and switching on using AC adaptor power did work and I got my screen display working.

However this does not always work, can you please advise.

My Sony Vaio PCG-K86P laptop is three years old and just over 24 months ago had a new motherboard installed, more recently had the Laptop checked out by an IT Service Techo and he gave a good report like saying it had at least another years life etc.

Appreciate if you can advise what might be the problem and point me in the right direction.
