Question about Sony VAIO GRX580 Notebook

1 Answer

Model: Sony vaio pc pcg-7A2L

Good Morning. My computer will not stay on. The lights on the computer will only light up when the batter is removed and the power chord is inserted. At this point it will only stay on for approximatly 3-5 secs then power off. (attempting to light the screen but never actually loading completely) Do you have any suggestions?

Sony vaio pcg 7A2L no screen/ display

It may be that the flexible print from board to screen is damaged.
The solution is more labour intensive. Perhaps the contacts are not pushed in right, that's easier to fix. Good luck.

Can i install 64 bits of window 7 on my Sony VaioPCG-7D2L

Technically Yes, you can.

However, your laptop is quite old now, and may not be suited for 64-bit Windows. You can install and run Windows x64, but it may be slow and unstable.

Why do you need 64-bit?
If you don't plan on running a 64-bit-only application or you have more than 4GB of RAM, chances are you wouldn't need a 64-bit windows installation.

If the laptop appears to boot up but the LCD screen is black, then the problem is a back-light fault caused by either a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to determine the fault and fix :-

Laptop heats up and turns off

If it is getting very hot and then turning off , it is most likely overheating....When the computer gets too hot it shuts itself off automatically. Here is what I recommend:

Get a can of compressed air or a small computer vacuum and remove the dust from the fan that is visible on the bottom of the computer. Also be sure to notice if that fan is properly running. If it is not running at all, you definitly want to get that replaced! After cleaning it out , try and run it again, if it is still shutting down , take it to a computer shop.

It could be something simple such as a dead fan or some large dust build up, but if you have never taken a laptop apart , you don't want to mess with it!
