Grz530 Sony Viao

Hello, maybe you could help me. I purchased a lap top from a friend and recenly purchased a new battery thinking this would fix the problem.

It just shuts down, sometimes with a warning sometimes with nothing. I am considering restoring but when it is working it is fine.

Help!!

This particular model had several "fatal flaws":

1. It was subject to overheating, especially when using the CD/DVD drive for an extended period of time. If the processor got hot enough it would shut down suddenly.

2. The motherboard had issues with losing memory. The memory chips were fine, but the motherboard would fail to connect to them as the computer got older. You would start out with 512 MB of memory, then 256 MB, then the PC wouldn't start since it had no memory available at all. Also, the connection problems were transient, so lockups were frequent if it "dumped" while the laptop was on.

Unfortunately there is no known solution for either of these, although using a laptop cooler did seem to help the overheat issue on mine.

Hmmm..sounds like maybe the battery charger is unhappy? Try it without the battery, running on AC power solo

How can i fix my lap top battery circuit after fixing new cells?


A very dangerous thing to do and possibly the pcboard and temperature sensor inside the battery is now damaged. Probably cheaper to buy a new battery through ebay than purchase new cells to attempt a repair.

Sony viao vgn nw240f does not turn off


Try to remove the battery and start only with the power supply plugged in.

If that doesn't work try with an other Power supply (from an other Sony Vaio)

If that works with only the power supply plugged in, replace the battery with a new one.

If that still doesn't work that's an internal issue (you were thinking of buying a new laptop? Well, you can go ahaed)

Only works about 45 minutes .


Hello

Depending on the age of the laptop, you should get a very minimu of 2 hours life from the battery. Return it to whomever you purchased it from.
