Power Issues to SONY VAIO VGN A150

I was working on my VAIO and everything was fine. I was in a hurry so I just shut the computer, and today opened it and tried to bring up the desktop. The computer would not start up. I checked the power supply. The wall had power, and the green light on the converter was showing so I am assuming it too has power. I checked all physical connections to make sure all was ok. I tried taking the main battery out and booting the machine but that did not work. I don't know what else to try. As far as I know, I did not shut down the machine and assume it should just be in hibernate mode. Help gladly accepted. Larry

    No error message. Alt, Cntl Delete didn't work. No light on machine to indicate it receives power. Used SONY fags and followed all of their suggestions. No luck.

Please let me know whether you are getting any error messages. Have you tried manually restarting the machine? Are you able to see light status on the laptop when you connect the power code? If the machine is in hybernate mode just press alt+ctrl+del and try and let me know whether its working or not.

Replacement of hard disk in Vaio VGN-A150

Well, it's not good news. Official word from Sony:

Knowledge Article C309925...

Can the notebook hard drive be upgraded or replaced

Hard drive upgrades in the notebook computer are not supported.


* Some notebook computer have instructions for warranty replacement of the hard drive by an end user.
* Although third-party upgrades may be available for some models, they are not supported.
* If the hard drive needs service, repair should be done by an authorized Sony service center.
* External hard drives may be attached if the appropriate connections are available.

This basically means complete disassembly of the laptop is required to get at the hard drive. Not that it can't be done. Just that it'll be a major pain in the .... you know.

There is no hidden key!
