My VGC-JS160J will randomly have the screen go dark for 1 - 2 seconds and then return without any data loss. Is there any "fix" to correct this recurring issue? Thanks

Hi, I have a Sony VGC-JS160J Desktop yesterday my kids were play and it turn off and don't turn on again

Disconnect the power from wall outlet for about five minutes also disconnect video cable from the PC.
Connect the cable to PC and power to known working wall outlet and see if it turns on.
Try a known working monitor and see if that works.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck and have a pleasent day.

My sony vaio vgc-js160j has a blue screen, shutdown and then restarts

When booting press F8,or your button to get to the Screen that has Safe Mode etc on it..then select 'Disable Automatic Restart on System Error'

Maybe it might be a Memory Fault or a Startup Program causing this BsoD.

You might then try to run your PC in Safe mode and look for Programs you installed recently.

Hope this helps
