Sony vaio on Standby with black screen

My laptop has been on standby with a black screen.
You hear noise inside without any thing.
Sometimes,it will just come on for only 3 seconds and
you could see the standby window and before you attempt to
click anything it goes black again.

    It was for only once and has refused to continue working with that solution.The trouble is still there.

    I need to try something else that could provide a more permanent solution....SONY VAIO VGN FE 550

    Bluescreen error are related to hardware ,but you are using laptop so this is not possible that hardware is attached wrongly.but sometimes due to wrong drivers installation also may cause this problem .see device manager if all the drivers are properly installed.

    reply with a comment to me ,to know how you are doing

A bit of citus soda was spillied in the top right speaker while the laptop was on and then it just shut off. Now the laptop won't start up ...the vaio screen sometimes just flashes once and then the screen...

Hi k_angelc,

Since that water is spilled inside the Computer, please do not turn it ON or connect to the AC Power. This will cause serious Hardware damages in the Computer. I would recommend that you contact Sony Service Center to repair the Computer immediately.

You can contact Sony Service Assistance Team at 1-800-282-2848 to setup a service at Sony Service Center.

Hope this helps.

Please post back if you have any questions or require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My pc is not starting i hear low noise tac tac tac and nothing happens. Screen black. i took off the battery tried again and same result thank you

That noise is the hard disk trying to spin and failing - it has died and must be replaced.Since hard disks rarely fail without sending a warning message you probably have other hardware faults - the entire laptop must be tested. this requires a good experience in these kind of stuff, if you don't have it then it's better to take the laptop to a dealer.

My Vaio will not come out of standby mode without having to be shut all the way down and rebooted, I have adjusted the power setings to ensure that nothing is preventing it from going into standby mode....

If the 10-sec thing doesn't work, then try this:
- unplug the mains power.
- remove the battery.
- leave for a minute.
- fit the battery back.
- plug in the mains lead.
- try switching the laptop on.

If it works, then run Windows Update to download the latest fixes to try & stop this happening again.

If it does happen again, try going to the website of the laptop's manufacturer & check on their Support pages to see if they have a fix for your problem.

Black Screen / Computer Stays in Standby Mode

Completely remove the battery and unplug the power cord for a few minutes. Reinsert battery and power up. You can also hit F8 when starting and see if you can boot into safe mode.
