I have a problem. I guess free money or a new job would be an okay response from this post, but I am really hoping to get some information. I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FS640/W. I was on vacation, and when I returned the computer would shut down after every time the power cord was unplugged. It seemed as if there was no battery.
I chatted it up with the lovely customer service types at Sony, tried all the suggestions, and was assured that the next one would be the solution. Placation aside, which was nice and hope-inspiring, I am still at an impasse. The computer does not recognize that I even have a battery. I have tried all the "by-the-books" methods of troubleshooting. Can a battery die that suddenly? Should I take it to a service center of the Best Buy variety before mortgaging my non-existant house for a new battery? Thanks and I really appreciate any advice that I can get on the topic.
At Wit's End,
