Sony VIAO will no longer power on

With the power adapter plugged into the laptop and the wall, the laptop will not power on. (won't power on with it unplugged either)

This is a Sony VAIO VGN-A600.

It is owned by a surgeon, and he needs the data from the harddrive. What do you recommend?

Try running it without the battery in, and only the wall charger plugged in. otherwise it sounds like it is a bad charger or possibly even battery. if this still does not fix it, then it could be that the power converter on the laptop has burned out.

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.


Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.


Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).


Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.


Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.


Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.


hope this helps

Acer one notebook no display and automatic shutdown


= if your laptop computer will not start =
laptops have power supplys that can lock up
the power adapters conectors break all the time 
and the batterys are designed to be "con$umable$" 
so 

- - -- - -- - -power reset - - -- - -- - -- - -
remove the power adapter's wall plug & 
leave the power adapter plugged into the computer 
but pull the laptop battery out of the laptop.
press the power button just like you are trying to start it 
but press it longer, this will drain & reset 
the internal supply, now relese the button.

-- - -- - -power adapter only test - - -- - -- - - 
reconnect the power adapter's wall plug 
press the power button to start it with just the power adapter , 
If the power adapter starts the laptop on its own go down to  
"If the computer can be started"

If the power adapter does not start the laptop on its own 
leave the power adapter plugged into the computer but 
remove the power adapter's wall plug & press the power button 
just like you are trying to start it again, 
then relese the button 

- - -- - - battery only test - - -- - -- - - 
unplug the power adapter & put the battery back in  
press the power button to start it with just the battery

if the battery starts it on its own go down to 
"If the computer can be started"

if the battery ALMOST starts it on its own 
DO NOT BUY A NEW ONE! it may only be discharged 
locate another laptop just like yours and charge it, 
and yes this is crazy and yes i am sorry!.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
- if your laptop computer cannot start at all - 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

this can be caused by a bad; 
connector ($5-$60), power adapter($5-$60), 
battery ($70), internal supply ($40-$90), 
or main/mother board ($100-$300)

If the internal power supply is bad or if the 
power conector fails at random (intermitant) 
most of the cost is determined by how dificult 
finding parts and dismantling the laptop is 
and if it's external or internal

My Sony VIAO won't even turn on


remove the battery and unplug the power. Hold the power button for 90 sec, do not plug in the battery yet. plug in the power and turn it back on. If the problem persist then it sounds like the motherboard is bad. Either replace the MB or part out the Laptop piece by peice and use the money to buy a new one. You get way more if you part it out then to try and sell it broken.

Sony viao wont boot, battery light flashes amber once when power button is pressed, AC power indicator on laptop is green and responds to being un-plugged and the adapter LED is green,but it still wont...


Move the power jack around while plugged in, does the blinking on the battery stop when you hold it in certain positions? If so, your dc-jack needs to be soldered, but i probably was loose already before you started using it. It could be a broken motherboard issue as well. You can try to open the laptop and check the dc connection. There is a Laptop Repair Guide that shows you how to take apart a laptop, the sony may be made in a similar way. Sony Repair NYC

Dead Sony Laptop


If power supply is supplying correct voltage, then you do not need power supply PCB.

Try starting the laptop with AC adapter and no battery, if battery is shorting out you may get same problem.

Test the soldering joint on the AC socket and laptop motherboard, if there is a bad soldering on laprop ac adapter socket, you get same symptoms.

If it is none of the above, and the adapter is fine, then it is usually a faulty motherboard.
