    ok that is way over my head. How do I fix the components inside when I do not know what components are in error/ Fix them how? and the momory chips I dont even know what and where to remove and how to clean. The noice is coming from the cd drive. It sounds like it is trying to access and spin the disk even though one is not in the drive. I can verify only their is memory chips and would this happen if maybe left in car heat for 2 or three hours. I cant understand why working then all the sudden no screen picuture and error in drive running noise. I was more looking for a general answer to see if this was an expensive thing to fix, my processor or what? I dont think I am qualified to fix. i can install a drive in my desktop and memory only becasue it plugs it and is an easy thing. with software i can handle but hardware may not be my area. Can you be more specific?

Hello

You need to open the pc and then refix all the components inside. verify also the memory chips, remove it and clean and then fix it back. if your noise maybe the hard drive got error. please tell me whats going after you do the solution.

    Ok, As i diagnose your problem, the system still boot but there is no screen display. As you said in the first post" Green light is on but no screen picture. Dont know what happened." it means that is problem either in memory of VGA adapter or in processor.



    Ok you can test the processor by booting your system with out memory. the system will create beeps. but if no beeps at all probably the processor cause some error. (removing the memory is maybe a simple task. (that is like in desktop PC Memory but smaller size) in the back of the laptop you can find screw bolt that can be open you can find the memory(for sure you can refer to your manual on doing this) If affraid to do maybe you can let the repairman do. but anyway that is like desktop also that is plugin the different is put in compact case. You can do that.

Sony vaio vgn nr490e no boot only humming / spinning sound and black screen with faint vaio on it


sounds like the backlite for your monitor needs to be replaced. (like the lightbulb went bad) These can be replaced usually, for under 100 dollars.

Vgn-fs630w won't reboot and also when try with reboot disk it won't read...just continuous boot over and over again after "window loading" screen.


Sounds like you may have 2 problems, that is
1) corrupted windows installation or faulty Hard drive causing the constant reboot.
2) faulty CD drive or dirty laser or dirty disks.

You could try pressing F10 when you see the vaio logo which will take you to the HDD based recovery options.
Test your cd/dvd disks in another machine to make sure they are o.k if they are you can try cleaning laser in cd drive.
Or if the disks are o.k and your cd drive is faulty you could use an external usb cd drive and set the bios to boot from an external drive.
