Refurbishing a Sony Vaio pcg k-33

I am looking to up grade my Sony, which works fine as is but I want duo-core and more ram. Do you have any idea what motherboards will fit this case and what additional power and cooling requirements would be needed?

Unfortunately unless your as pro with soldering and creating your own connections there is just no way to upgrade your motherboard. All that you can upgrade is more ram and a bigger harddrive. Nothing else really. Also if you do go ahead and try soldering in upgrades go in at your own risk because more than likely you will mess something up and you will get yourself an expensive paperweight.

Hello friends , i have a sony vaio PCG-8M4P i installed windows xp old version and it was working fine ... then i decided to upgrade to service pack 3 ... it installed servie packed 3 everything was...

It really sounds like SP3 installing was coincidental.You're not getting to the point that Windows even starts,so it becomes a hardware issue.
Sometimes laptop batteries are hidden under panels and boards you remove to get at things below.
Since you've already taken the machine apart,try it again looking under everything you remove.Remember that laptops don't necessarily use the standard size desktop battery,they're usually smaller.
Make sure Everything is plugged back in when you put it back together.
Other than that,you could very well have a bad Ram stick,try using them one at a time in the bottom slot.
A CPU failure usually allows the POST screen.
