Your symptoms point to two possible problems.

1. It's your charger that's the problem. Chargers can fail in one portion of their structure that charges the battery but the part that powers the laptop directly can continue to function normally.

2. Your DC Power Jack (the small hole where the charger plugs into the board) can be having the same trouble I described in the charger

When people bring a laptop to my shop with these systems I always try a charger first, the easiest and least expensive fix. If that doesn't work, I have to send the laptop out to one of several vendors on eBay that specialize in that repair alone. You just go to eBay and type "DC Power Jack Repair" in the search box and you'll have quite a few reapir shops to choose from. I've had 100% success with several different ones.

Good Luck

Sony vaio vgn-nr285E battery won't hold a charge


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My VAIO doesnt seem to charge up when connected to the power supply button at times it works then power depletes very quickly.


How long did your Sony VAIO battery been used? Li-ion battery's life is about 2 years. And you can do a battery capacity correction by your VAIO's Battery management software and to see that if the problem get better. else you need a new Sony VAIO battery.

I have just purchased a new sony battery. my model no. is sony vaio VGN CR510E/L. The laptop doesnt recognize the new battery BPS9 and it says update the bios. i just downloaded the sofware bps9.exe but...


If the battery is not a Sony battery but an equivalent, the Sony may not recognize it as there is not the specified "bit" of information built in to it. It maybe just totally flat in which case it will take a number of hours on charge to get it recognized.
The BIOS upgrade must be done with a good battery fitted and the AC Adapter working otherwise if the power fails whilst loading, you cannot recover the BIOS again.

Hullo, I spilled wine on my sony vaio


spilling the wine could have caused a surge to your battery or charger either one could be damaged but if your battery is reading full and powers off at random then it is probably your battery and needs to be replaced
