Perform power cycle. Disconnect all power sources, battery and power cord. Press power button for 5 secs. Reconnect power and start unit again. Do you see VAIO? Do you enter BIOS by holding F2 as soon as you press power button? If not then its probably hardware related, i mean needs service. Otherwise if you see any of what i mentioned above try turning off and then on and pressing F8 for safe mode or repair your computer options and then try system restore from accessories menu or F10 for full recovery with data loss (Restore C drive)

    If the computer turns on but turns itself off call Sony as this is a possible recall

No image is coming out of its LCD. It's diagnosed to have damaged video chipset. It seems its cooling system is inefficient. model: Sony VAIO VGN-CR131E


Hi

Who diagnosed it?

If the surface of the "video chipset" (graphics chip) is damaged it may be possible for a specialist, with an Infra Red Workstation to repair it:

Ball Graphics Array Reflow

or

Ball Graphics Array Reballing

These repairs can be expensive and the fault can come back after repair.

But it might also be a fault with the LCD Panel, the Cold Cathode Backlight or the LCD Panel Power Inverter.

Connect the laptop to an external desktop monitor with a VGA cable, using the Fn + F5, F6 or F7 button to send the image to the external monitor. If no image appears, then the fault is with the graphics chip, if you get an external image then the fault is with one of the other components I mention above.

I hope this helps.

I have a sony Vaio VGN_FZ4000, after upgrading to Windows7, it says there is no camara instaled, I went to sony help but all they have are software for the camara no drivers. the camera my laptop have is...


Those 2 software packages offered by Sony on their web site, (a) ArcSoft Magic-i Visual Effects, and
(b) WebCam Companion Software, may just include the driver necessary to get their packages to
work with Win7 - pick one an install it - if the camera works, you got the driver. If the camera still
refuses to work, then all you have to do is de-install the package, install the other one and
give that a try.

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
