Question about Sony VGN-FZ430E/B Notebook

1 Answer

I have no response from my Sony Vaio FZ-430e laptop. Power light comes on and nothing happens...no fan, no hard drive no dvd...no response whatsoever. Do I need a new mother board or could it simply be a short in the internal cap.

This sounds like it may be a Power controller problem, (circuit that controls battery charging etc...) To fix this the mainboard usually needs to be replaced, which will mean that you will have to send it to SONY to be "serviced".

Why is my Sony VAIO VPCEB33FM green power light flashing?


It won't be the cpu. If it was, nothing would happen. I would look for a GPU issue, possible over heat.

It sounds like you may be having a video related issue. These issues may indicate that you have a problem with either your video card or your lcd screen. To isolate the issue, you have to connect an external monitor to the VGA port of the portable system. There should be an S2 button on your laptop which should allow you to switch videos. Press that and if the video appears on the monitor, then it is an issue with the LCD screen. If nothing happens, you have a video card failure. These are due for replacement already.

I have a sony vaio pcg. it powers on and does nothing else. the 2 little cooling fans come on but the hard drive doesn't run and screen won't come on. can anyone help me out. thanks


Hello,

Its possible that you already have a bad hard drive. It may have crashed. Your system will not boot without the hard drive running. The computer will keep on trying to look for the Hard drive that's probably why it looks like its doing nothing. Bring your machine to sony and have them fix it. If you know how to open up your Vaio, try to check the Hard drive connection and see it its loose, if its not loose. its time to replace the hard drive.

I hope this helps. Thanks and have a nice day.

Will not start up - makes clicking noisee from near dvd draw.


Hi there.
The hard drive is on its way out and at some point its going to need replacing.
If the problem is intermittent and you can still get it to boot into windows i would suggest you back up all your data (pics,docs etc) to an external drive or to CD/DVD before you loose everything.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

The motherboard controls the fan speed - and laptops often turn it off entirely when it is not needed. This sounds like a motherboard issue where an internal trace is broken and sometimes it makes contact, other times not. There's probably nothing you can do except replace the motherboard.
