    sounds like the power-saving settings in BIOS are not agreeing with Windows settings for same. It is usually best to allow Windows only to control power saving mode, that is open BIOS screen and disable power saving mode...too late.

There is a common problem with laptops that the power jack comes loose from the main board. However this Vaio has a flying lead connector which makes it less likely. The laptop will need to be disassembled to check and I cant find a service manual on the internet. Can you log in to Sony's e-support and ask for one? I'll get back later if I can find one.

    I have a customer's VGN-B1XP registered with Sony support with the same problem. I have waited since 7th Sept for a response. If only people wouldn't buy from the company with the world's worst support.

Acer 4830 battery suddenly dead


Your battery is still alive, the problem is in the laptop, it may have a blown resistor or charging ic. I can bypass these parts tru jumpering if ever these parts are not available in the electronics store. Now, take the laptop in the computer repair shop nearest you for this is a hardware related problem.

I need to know how to use my new laptop battery correctly.


The first time you charge the battery allow 12 to 16 hours, after that 2 to 4 hours or when battery is charged. If you go on battery frequently drain it right down before charging it, this will give the maxi-um performance and longevity.

I had a GPU issue so i searched in google to find a solution and i found a solution it was needs to open the laptop , the motherboard the GPU problem solved now but there's a new problem that i didn't have...


Hello,

I would check to make sure the AC adaptor connection on the motherboard was not damaged when you opened the pc. ( I have done that a few times.) I'm uncertain of what you have done to solve the problem. Since you have the new battery, again try to charge the battery. when it show the charge is complete, let the pc run until it goes off, when it does, keep powering your pc on until it will no longer power on. (You want to make sure the battery is completely drainned.) Once complete, try plugging the AC to your pc and monitor the charge. You may need to let the pc charge for at least 2 hours before powering the pc on.

Good Luck

Evo N610c Laptop - auto shutdown?


If you had the adapter checked out, then it has to be the power input to the motherboard (where you plug the adapter in). I have one of these laptop's as well, but my problem is that the battery is completely drained and won't change. Never the less, you might be able to find a replacement motherboard from ebay for fairly cheap.
