Question about Psion Revo
I have a sony vaio laptop, vgn-a600p. When we have a power outage, the battery and laptop loses all power. I have learned to unplug the laptop at night. However I forgot to the other night, and we had a short power outage. This is the second time for this problem. What happens is the whole computer loses power, even though there is power to the computer, have checked with an electrical thingy to make sure there is power to the laptop. I can't boot up the laptop period, with or without the battery, even after letting it "die" completely and trying to recharge the battery or coming up on just the adapter without the battery. The last time this happened, I was told I had to recycle the power?? Can you help me with this? Thanks.
Try uninstalling the power icon next reset computer it will automatically install again . You may need a current converter to adapt your power but in reality you need new laptop

I'm going to agree that the power outage probably caused the problem when it surged but that's why the power company (and most everyone else) urges you to use a surge protector when plugging in any high-end expensive items (i.e. laptops, computers, flat panel TVs, etc.)
I've only ever heard of one printer company (Lexmark) suggesting that you plug directly into the wall.
As for your problem, it sounds like your power supply is fried. With a VAIO, I have no idea how to replace it, but I would think that is your problem based on what you're describing.

Sounds like your power outage might have damaged either your charger or your computer (or both). What type of electrical thingy did you use and where did you use it? Did it have a red clip and a black clip? or does it just make noise when you get close to the wires?
If it has a red clip/black clip then it is probably a multimeter. You'll need to look at the symbols on the power adaptor and look for the voltage output. If it says 19.5v. then you have to set your multimeter to that voltage range and then touch the red pin or clip to the middle of the plug and touch the black to the outside of the plug (both at the same time) and look at the readout. It should show either positive or negative 19.5v. or really really close 19.6 maybe. if it doesn't then the charger is dead. If it does then the computer has sustained damage. It can be repaired but it may be expensive.
If I were you I would call the power company and ask them what they plan on doing about the fact that their system fried your computer.
