I have ordered new battery for my Sony Vaio notebook VGN-CR220E from Amazon.com and when i attached it says plugged in, not charging. please help me


Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

I have a sony vaio vgn-nr430e laptop, and was wondering if the motherboard processor could be upgraded? Also can a video card be installed.


Hi.

Yes you should be able to upgrade the processor on the laptop for a faster one. The socket type of the processor is socket PPGA47. This code is what you type for when looking for a faster processor. The installed processor should be Intel Pentium T2390 / 1.86 GH.

As for the graphics card then i'm sorry but the graphics chip is part of the motherboard and cannot be upgraded.



Regards.

Sony laptop just turned off, it won't turn on. It was not hot.


The problem is your power supply charger, or the DC jack in the laptop, or bad battery. Remove the main battery and see if it will start up, if yes! the battery will need to be replaced, If no! plug charger in the computer and apply side-way pressure on the DC jack "not to hard" and press power repeatedly to see if you can start it, If yes! It is the DC jack that has broken free from the motherboard, If no! It is the power supply or motherboard. I suggest a computer tech

Power socket sony vaio


Look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Power socket is loose


dc jack socket for Sony VAIO VGN-FW is very easy to loose, I think you can replace the cabled dc jack, no solder work, plug in and work, see this reference page: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-vgnfw-series-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2647.html
the above item is with ground cable, it is known that sony FW uses both harnesses with or without ground cable, you can cut the ground cable directly if your laptop does not use it, or order from this page for the one without ground cable: http://www.lapdiy.com/sony-vaio-07300012492a-power-jack-port-connector-dc-in-cable-p-2782.html
hope this can help you
