Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FS640W Notebook
I own a Sony Vaio VGN-FS640W. Couple of nights back, while I had been surfing the net since a few hours, I heard a pop sound all of a sudden, and the laptop turned off completely within a second. There was no smoke or nothing. None of the LEDs come on nor is there any sound from the fan or hard drive. Nothing! It's a complete dead duck. I opened it up but did not find any burnt spots nor anything out of whack. Battery is fully charged as off the night of incidence. HELP! I am using my iPhone to surf and find solutions. Thanks in advance.
I went to the Sony Vaio support site for your model specifically and they mention a battery recall. There is a place on the site requiring specific information about your system and your battery to see if you are eligible for the recall. I would try this route to see if it resolves your issue. If not, I would say it is a blown transistor and you need to replace the motherboard. This means buying a new system, as Sony VAIO laptops are very proprietary and hard to find parts for.
