Question about Sony VAIO VGN-N130G/W Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop battery and AC adapter

Have a sony notebook (VGN-N130G) and I belive the battery is dead. It no longer holds a charge. Also, the AC adapter makes a weird chirping noise when it's plugged up. Could the AC be the problem or should I just replace both? Is it safe to buy a generic battery? Sony wants a lot of $$ for the battery.

Replace the power supply first, chirping is not good, and if the supply has a low output it could be putting out just enough to run the machine and not enough to charge the battery. Starving the machine for power can damage the machine or the battery, so, you may still need a battery, but you won't know until you replace the supply. If you do need a battery, aftermarket or generic batteries are fine. I've used them and had no problems. Many times you'll find that the aftermarket batteries are made by the same company that the laptop manufacturer uses, they just don't have the label, it's this way with damn near all the laptop manufacturers.

Sony vaio not charging while charger plugged in


Seemingly your laptop dc jack is dead. How to confirm it? If you should wiggle your laptop charger on a position to let your laptop charge, it indicates your dc jack is loose. Either replace it or repair it. If your dc jack works well, please check your ac adapter. Maybe your charger is dead.

How to change hard drive on Sony VGN-N130G?


I need the model number printed on the front of your case, VGN-N130G does not exsist on the sony web support page. http://support.vaio.sony.eu/computing/vaio/index.aspx?l=en_GB

Usually there is a cover under your laptop that is marked.
Remove 1 or 2 screws and your harddrive should just slide out.

I have a Sony Vaio CR-120E laptop. The battery on the laptop is dead, so I took it out. Can I run only the AC Adapter to power the computer? Also is there a setting within the computer to set AC Adapter...


Yes, you can start using the laptop only with AC input and there is no extra settings to configure the same. But you will be not getting any backup when the power goes.

Revert back for more assistance

When first setting up the laptop do we need to charge the battery completely even when using power adaptor?This was sent overseases and was in storeage for awhile now it will not power on at all.


No, it should start right away, even with a dead battery.

Try removing the battery and just using the power adapter to start the computer.

If that doesn't work, let me know.

Noise coming from AC adapter


There is a possibility that the power managment sestem in the computer has malfunctioned and is back feeding and burning up the supplies. You will need to take this in for a professional diagnostic to find out if you have a back feed problem. A back feed problem is rare, but not unheard of.

Sony Vaio ac adapter submerged


If the ac adapter was plugged into the laptop at the time may be bad news. Unplug AC adapter, take out the battery and hold power button for 10 seconds. Then connect AC adapter and hit power. If that doesn't work put battery back in without ac adapter and hit power button.

If neither test works bring to repair center for diagnosis. Best case AC adapter would need replacing. Worst case Motherboard fried.
