You have done most of the leg work, remove a stick of ram and try again, remove second piece and put back the first and try again, beyond this! you are looking at motherboard issues, a loose DC jack in the laptop will cause intermittent to no power, "common" but requires dis-assembly right down the motherboard level to address.

My Sony laptop is not charging when it is pluged in on to the electric oulet


If the battery is not charging when the power cord is plugged in then the battery is completely dead and needs to be replaced.

Are you sure your power cord is good and that you are not operating on battery power?

Take the battery out and see if the laptop stays on. Or you can reboot with the battery out and the power cord in. If it fails that means the Power Cord is the issue and you were working off the battery.

If you leave the power cord off and insert the battery, then reboot. If it boots up and stays up that means the battery has some charge in it. If it does not boot up or boots and shuts down, the battery is drained and you will need another one if the power cord is good and it's not charging.

I have a Gateway T-6330u notebook. I have had problems with the battery cord before where it plugs into the computer. A piece broke off from the battery cord and was stuck in the computer. I talked with...


Seems more like a problem with the power receptacle where you plug the power cord into the laptop.In order to fix this problem, you will need to disassemble the unit to get access to the motherboard & replace the power receptacle with a good one.

Power socket sony vaio


Look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My vaio turned off suddenly an the side light was blinking when i was trying to turn it on. Now i doesn't even turn on.What should i do?


Hi There !!

Thank you for choosing fixya.com
It's could be because of two reasons.
1. The Laptop is Overheated
2. The battery of the Laptop has some problems.

To diagnose this:
Step 1: Let the computer, be turned off for 15-30 minutes. Unplug the battery, Unplug any external Hardware connected to the laptop. Could be any external drive or any thing.

Step 2: After 30 minutes of disassembling the laptop. Let's put the battery back in & don' plug the power chord. Just give it a try to turn it on without plugging it in to the power jack.

Step 3: Still no joy, Try to plug the power chord back again & try to adjust it. Because Power port detects the power cord only after much adjusting of the cord and putting a weight on top of the cord so that the cord somehow makes contact with the power port on the laptop.

This is really the case with Vaio & Acer laptop because of their complex design.

Step 4: Check the voltage of your CMOS battery. if your battery is low it will fail to power up the system. if you leave it sit for a long period of time, it may be having a chance to "recharge" itself. This step should be done by a professional, because you might damage other part of the machine .

If your computer in warranty, Call Vaio Helpline right know. And, if any chance your computer is little old dont call Vaio help line because they charge heavily. Contact the local tech shop, even for your reference http://www.compusa.com/ it's cheap & good service dealer for laptop.

Hope this'll direct you in the right direction.

Won't turn on even with power cord plugged in


By dumping the power while running you have trashed your Operating System or blown up the Ram

Insert your OS disk and see if it comes to life , if it does then you may have to try a repair from the OS installation CD

If you have popped the Ram then the only solution is to get it checked out on another PC

Won't stay on when plugged in. Battery? Power cord is new, could it be the power port on the computer?


Hi !
It might be your power adaptor !

I am not sure, but usually it should have a red/yallow led while charging and green when charged !
Read your manual.

Also, check power settings in control pannel.
There, you can find power schemes that turn off your laptop automatically when some time pass.

Set NEVER when plugged on power!

Check screen saver settings (and turn it off - NONE)

Also it should not turn off if there is any user activity!

At the end, if you are sure that there is no problem with your power unit, than checking and setting power OPTIONS in control pannel, should solve your proplem.

Regards.

Won't stay on


IS THIS WITH BOTH AC CORD AND BATTERY
you probably need a power supply
before you run out and buy one start and press f8 then start in safemode see if the same thing happens
also make sure your AC adapter is connecting with internal connection the internal connection can become loose or bent from constant plugging and unplugging

Vaio will not turm on


you will most likely need to replace the dc jack, which is the port where your charger plug plugs into...

To test if your dc jack is bad... Remove the Battery, Plug the Power cord into laptop then attempt to power on... If no lights turn on, no fan spins.. your DC jack is bad...
DC Jacks Cost $6 to $10 but you need to find someone experienced to replace it, or you might end up with a dead motherboard as well..

Power cord plug


if the mainboard is damaged its almost impossible to fix i recommend to make sure that the board is ok if so a little soldering to the power plug could fix the problem and cost u some dollars.
