This could be a hardware problem, and this machine only being two weeks old shouldn't have any problems. I'm going to recommend you take it back for exchange.

    Sorru for my poor english. I search why my syster's laptop (the same model) has this same problem.
    I've say she a solution for boot. It's ok for this time but I don't know after another shutdown.
    Unplugged he AC cord and remove the battery.
    When the laptop is in this state, press the power button for help to empty the condensator (?? does this word existe ?). Than put the battery at it's place and plug the power cord.

    Have same problem here - with the same Sony model - suggested solution here didn't work

    The battery has been **** for many months (i.e. lasts approx 20 mins max). I am normally a big Sony fan - but given this seems a gereral problem on a circa £1000 laptop (at time of new purchase) I am no longer sure - I am now inclined to take it back to see what they say.

Sony pcg-81114L power supply not detected

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Wont boot up when plugged in but boots from battery

When you plug it in, does it show that the battery is charging? If not, then the DC Power socket has failed on the laptop, so a new power supply would not fix the problem.

The manufacturer will tell you to replace the motherboard, however the DC power sockets are readily available, and relatively easy to fit.
