Question about Sony VAIO Notebook

1 Answer

Ac power My computer is having an issue with the power supply. The computer started suddenly asking me if I wanted to conserve power while on battery, yet it was plugged in. I unplugged it noticing that the battery had plenty of charge. I took a (very) long break, and when I returned the battery had run down. I plugged it in and it wouldn't open up long enough for me to do anything, so I left it overnight, the power supply light was lit, so I know it was working, and the battery charge light was flashing. But when I open it now, it imediately goes into hibernation. It seems like there must be something wrong with the part inside the computer that the charger/power supply plugs into. How can I test it when I have no way to recharge my battery?

  • just remove the battery and connect power adaptor.
  • power on the power switch.

If every thing goes well then you have to replace your battery, it might be faulty.

I have a Compaq Presario R3000 with Windows XP OS. Until recently it had been working fine. Suddenly, the power went off while still connected to the AC Supply and the Laptop just went off. The battery...


1. Remove battery from the laptop. 2. Unplug the power cord from the computer. 3. Let the computer sit for a few min. 4. Leave battery out. 5. Connect power adapter to computer 6. Push power button to turn computer on. 7. If computer powers on shut down again, and put battery back in. 8. Push power button to turn computer back on (at this point battery and power adapter should be connected to the computer)
If computer powers on with power adapter with the battery out. You are having a battery issue. You would want to look into replacing the battery. If computer does not power on with just the power adapter. You are most likely having a power issue. Depending on how old the laptop is. You will either want to contact the manufacturer. Or take the computer to a computer repair shop, or consider replacing the laptop.

I've had a similar issue and believe the problem could be one of two things. 1.) Your power supply, so you may want to disconnect and reconnect (very firmly) the powersupply to the computer, wall, and inbetween if you have two cord device. Also you may want to try a different electrical outlet. 2.) It could likely be the power connection to the motherboard, you can test this by "gently" applying constant pressure to where the power supply connects to the laptop. You can do this by slowly, but gently, pressing up, down, left and right on the connector to see if the power on your laptop goes from battery use to "On AC Power". I would suggest imanging the face of a clock and starting at 1 o'clock and moving ever so slowly around to 12 o'clock. If your AC Power does kick on then it is definately your motherboard connection and a repair or replacement for the motherboard is in order. *** NOTE press gently, if this is not the problem you don't want to break it and have this become the problem. ***

Hope this helps, Best Regards, -md

My toshiba had a bad internal power socket and I went through the same steps that you did. I also replaced the battery. So now I have two batteries and two power supplies and had to pay to have the computer shop put in the internal socket that the power supply plugs into. Hope this helps

Sounds like a battery issue. Try powering up without the battery, just AC. If it powers properly, then the battery needs replaced. If it doesn't then it may be the power supply malfunctioning, or the motherboard.

Was the laptop on when it turned off? It may be a PSU problem but we can determine this by removing the battery. Make sure you disconnect the AC adapter while your removing the battery. Inspect the contacts and make sure`there are no black marks or any other dirt. Leave the battery out and plug in your AC adapter. Try the power again. 
There are a couple of possibilities in terms of problems that I can suspect so far. Did anything out of the ordinary happen when the computer just stopped working all of the sudden.
1. Battery has failed and short circuited the contacts 2. Power supply failure 3. Motherboard could have failed in style. 4. Power contacts for the AC adapter are damaged.
