There seems to be a problem with the memory slots. I had the same problem as you. Layed a tooth pick across the memory, long way with the dimms. An now it boots fine evrytime.

My sony vaio will not turn on


Either the power supply is bad (has died) or the power unit in your laptop is bad. Try another power supply if possible. If not you'll need to open up your computer and replace the power supply unit.

I would like to replace the hard drive in my Vaio PCG-6F1L notebook and can not figure out how to open the case. there is one release I am missing. Bruce


Usually there is a side or a bottom part of the case where you can pop the hard drive out. My best advice is to refer to a manual or sony directly.

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..

"Burned" DC in power adapter


hi there generally all laptops can be opened more or less in the same way first undo all screws in the back, next you need to remove the panel where the power button is most of them just unclip and come off easily using a flat screw driver, you'll probably find some more screws underneath,if the hinges covers are part of the panel they should come off with the panel if seperate just check for any screws if not they just unclip undo any further screws, next unscrew the keyboard, unplug it, unplug the mouse pad, then the top part of the laptop base should just lift easily, make sure you remove the battery before you start all this, any drives, hard drive, etc hope this would be of some help regards
