Question about Sony Vaio S150P (VGNS150P) PC Notebook
Thank you for your response to my problem! I have a bit more information this time.
After starting it and turning it off several times, it finally started
up. The LCD display seems to be fine.
So the pc finally starts up, but, it freezes up very often. I'm not referring to the type of freeze up associated with viruses and spyware. It seems as if the pc actually crashes. If I turn it off and turn it back on, it will still sometimes not display anything on the screen (by the way, when nothing is displayed on the screen, the pc does not boot up). The times that it DOES display something on the screen and starts to boot successfully, it ALWAYS freezes up at one point. It freezes up even in the middle of booting windows.
I also noticed the bottom of the laptop is VERY hot, so I'm thinking it could be constantly over heating (but I can hear the fan is working), do you think that could be the issue?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Take the battery and power supply out and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This will reset your hardware settings. Your backup battery isnt your problem. Does your battery light turn on when charging? Does your keyboard lights light up when it runs for a second (try pressing caps lock)?

you might be having hard drive problems, press f2 and make sure the hard drive is showing up ok. if it is then press f8 when booting select safe mode. if it comes up fully then go to the start menu, help and support and select system restore. select a date 1 week prior to the problem.

Before making any decision on whether it's a hardware failure, please try and boot from a CD or DVD (recovery disc). If it does successfully boot from an external disc - and there is no flickering problem, then the hardware parts are okay. In that case, please go to this link: http://lifehacker.com/5413223/how-to-fix-your-relatives-terrible-computer?skyline=true&s=x for more information on what to do when you can't enter into your operating system and how to fix malwares that might be causing the flickering. If you find my ideas satisfactory, please do rate me. Thanks

Testimonial: "same problem when CD boot. How can I decide whether it's the LCD screen or some internal circuitry?"
Most likely your hard drive has gone bad. It could be your RAM too. I know that you said you checked your ram one stick at a time. What if both sticks are bad? I would get some cheap (low MBs) sticks of ram that are compatible with your computer to see if your computer will start to run right with those in.
