Hi chris_rovie3.
Based on the information you have provided, the issue might be due to the Battery or the Power settings.
As the issue might be due to the Power Unit in the Notebook, this might also be related to the Hardware problem(Power Unit).
Hence, it would be better to get the Unit examined at the authorized Service Center.
However, you may first try performing the troubleshooting steps which I have mentioned below:
http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&externalId=C390934&fes=true&mdl=PCGK33P

The above link has all the possible troubleshooting steps.
Hence, please try performing all the troubleshooting steps mentioned on the page.
Performing the steps should resolve the issue.
If the issue still persists even after performing all the troubleshooting steps, the issue might be Hardware related.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.

I have sony vaio all in one computer model no VGC-LS25E and its screen turned white and i can't figure out the problem. is it LCD? or something else.


Did you completely turned unit off? Hold power button without power cord connected. Then proceed to reconnect power. Press power button and IMMEDIATELY hold key for aprox 5 secs (while and if it shows VAIO). It should load the BIOS setup screen. If you dont see anything like this the problem may be Hardware related, otherwise its Windows related

Sony vaio pcg-272l all in one with catv connection bios screen password can't get pass it is there a soloution


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Sony desktop Model No. PCG-272L Shows white screen nothing else


I have the same problem. Took it apart and noticed one of the fans is not even kicking in when you power it up, so it's not even doing the POST. Still troubleshooting it but the good news is it's not the hard drive.

Won't stay on


IS THIS WITH BOTH AC CORD AND BATTERY
you probably need a power supply
before you run out and buy one start and press f8 then start in safemode see if the same thing happens
also make sure your AC adapter is connecting with internal connection the internal connection can become loose or bent from constant plugging and unplugging

Hi z14jc.
Clink on the link below

Download the VAIO dissasembly.doc
Its not for your model but should be close enough.
I am presuming that your laptop is OUT of warranty and you have a good idea of what you are doing?
Ensure you have an ESD strap on when touching components.
Good luck.
Let me know if this was useful.
