Are you using a USB extension cable? I have found that you can use a 50' USB extension cable but if you connect 2 of the 50' extension cables together you receive this error.

Alot of the FX series Vaio's from years back started to suffer from similar power issues. They slowly get worse over time. And eventually, the thing won't run longer than a few seconds if at all.
If you remove the battery and the power cord, let it sit for a few minutes, and then plug back up, does it come on for a brief period??
The most common issue with the FX series, was the CPU daughter board. There are 11 surface mounted capacitors that need to be replaced. These would fail over time, usually due to insufficient cooling. And cause the laptop to sense a false high temp reading from the cpu. The laptop would shut off prematurely. Replacing the caps solved the problem for most. Or simply replacing the CPU daughter board.
I have repaired several of these at my shop in past years. But if you would like to research it yourself, just go to google.com and do some searching.
