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.

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.

I just purchased a Sony Viao all-in-one. The Sony showed the cursor when I first turned it on, but the mouse could not move the cursor. I replaced the AA battery, and now it does not show a cursor.

If you have a wired mouse you can try to see if that works properly. If its a bluetooth connection you need to make sure its paired with the PC. You can access the settings by going through the control panel and then mouse. Make sure the mouse shows up in the settings, if not you can try to detect new hardware or new mouse.
If it is showing up in the mouse settings, restart the PC and make sure the mouse is on when the PC boots up.
Hope this helps!

Only works about 45 minutes .


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.

Sony Viao HDMI to Panasonic Plasma TV HDMI Input handshake

Try all of your HDMI inputs, one may be rated at the correct voltage to be able to display the video. The offical part that Panasonic was giving for this was PDPHDMIKIT, its basically a HDMI extender that regulates the voltage. The part is still available online, try or andrews-electronics.
