Question about Sony VAIO FRV37 Notebook
I recently cleaned the dust balls from the inside of my laptop. What I didn't realize was that I still had the battery pack inside the computer. Once I cleaned out the dust balls with the air duster I started it up and everything was working fine until the power cable harness accidentally popped out of it's socket because the ribbon was so short and the power panel was not in a good position. Since I didn't realize the battery pack was still in the computer I went to put the power harness back in it's socket but couldn't do it on the first try and I saw a red light come on to the power panel on the second or third try. Now the computer won't turn on, no lights, no fan, no nothing! I took out the battery pack and just plugged it in to the regular power supply also and nothing happens and tried to reset the computer too and still nothing! Is my motherboard dead or is there another problem that is easily fixable?
Damn, you got some bad luck there. without actually haveing the laptop in my hands I can't offer much assistance.
Try to turn it on with and without the battery, then with the battery and without the charger. if noting happens after a few trys you can open it up again and look if something smells bad or looks bad (black or otherwice burned)
Of you can take the laptop to a pc repair center for analysis.
