Vaio wont power up but battery light keeps flashing


Disconnect the AC adapter, remove any additional RAM that has been added and disconnect all peripheral devices connected to the computer.
If the computer starts normally after performing this procedure, the issue is being caused by the additional RAM, or the peripheral devices that were connected to the computer.

Remove and then reconnect the battery.

Remove and replace (reseat) the original RAM that came installed in the computer.

Check if the computer goes to BIOS, restart the computer press and hold the F2 key. If so..reset it by pressing the F9 key.
Try to boot the computer...

I have a Sony Vaio laptop, model PCG-384L. It will not power up. My wife indicated that she push some button that lock the power. Can seem to find the button that controls or locks the power button. ...


Typically that flashing light means low battery. Which makes sense, as you probably have an issue with the AC Adapter that you plug into the computer to charge it, or the DC Jack that this adapter plugs into on the laptop. Either of these things will cause your computer to not charge the battery, and if there isn't enough power it won't turn on.

The builty-in wireless card connection stopped


Purchase either a USB or a PCMCIA wireless-adapter, install it, connect it, and use it, after "disabling" the built-in wireless-adapter.

Or, if your computer is still under "warranty", exercise the warranty to get SONY to fix it.

Wireless Network stopped detecting ALL local networks


Hi, Have you installed the driver for your wireless card since you re-formatted?

Right click on my computer and go to properties, select device manager. all of your hardware will be listed there. are there any yellow question marks? these are devices that need drivers.

Your wifi card will probably be called 'network adapter'. go to the sony vaio website and download the right driver for your wifi card
