Sony PCG-F340 keeps shutting down

Hi, I have the above model that keeps shutting down within 15 seconds of it loading the windows desktop (win98). It also keeps flashing the LED nearest the number 1 on the battery indicator.  This notebook doesn't appear to want to run of the battery at all (it doesn't seem to hold a charge). The shutting down problem is still happening when plugged into the mains. It doesn't do it if it's booted in safe mode though. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thomas. hi the problem i am having is, the machine shut's down whenever i move it slightly, or hit a key and i am having serious trouble starting it. here's hoping Bob

Old Sony laptops do this when the battery is dead, or the charging system is below required voltage. A battery with a dead cell (which this sounds like) can damage your external PSU and internal battery/power regulator circuit. Remove the battery (shut down and disconnect PSU first). You can run the laptop forever, without the battery, if you cannot find a battery replacement, or do not like the cost. Obviously, though, the laptop will not run at all without the AC/PSU connected when the battery is removed.

Sony vaio model pcg-61611L it turns on for 4 seconds and then it turns off using the ac adapter . help please


The charger may be bad, will it charge the battery? a common problem is the DC jack in the laptop breaks connection on the motherboard internittent operation or no power and shut down. If you can sub the charger that will tell if the power supply is bad or the problem is in the laptop. If the computer is the issue I recommend a professional because it will require extensive parts removal.

Hi..
You nearly got it.....
Take the harddrive back out and format it on your tower,make sure it,s the right format,then place the harddrive back into the laptop and then install windows from your laptop..
Because if you install windows from your tower,your motherboard from your tower install the componants it needs to run from the windows disc,therefore it won,t run on your laptop because it,s a different motherboard...

Hope this helps...if it does please take the time to rate it,as i,ve taken the time the answer you..

HP530 shuts down within 15 seconds as it loads XP


Probabpy an XP problem, start XP in safe mode (press F8) as it is loading.
If it runs then it is probably a driver problem. Try restarting in the last good configuration. Keep posting until the problem is resolved.

Larger Memory Card Required for my Sony Vaio model No PCG_7L1M


Use the link below to find the memory configuration for your machine. This site will give you the max memory your machine will hold, the type of memory required, the chipset and frequency that's in your machine. I'm not sure the right model was posted, I'm seeing Vaio PCG-F340. You have 512mb now, but the max memory for the PCG-F340 is 192mb? Anyway, go to the site and you will find what you're looking for.

Download the VAIO dissasembly.doc
Its not for your model but should be close enough.
I am presuming that your laptop is OUT of warranty and you have a good idea of what you are doing?
Ensure you have an ESD strap on when touching components.
Good luck.
Let me know if this was useful.
