Question about Sony Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I tried yesterday 6-7 times to turn it on

I tried my vaio vgn cr-363 yesterday 6-7 times to turn it on. The led indicator glows for a second and after that there is no sign that it will turn on. Tried to reinstall the battery and power it on direct supply. But nothing worked.
but today it is working
the same problem occurred 10 days back also
i got it repaired from service center,they said might be some problem with motherboard connector and repaired.

But the problem is very weird,, it is not turning on first day(tried many times) and suddenly on 2nd day, turns on on first press of the power button. Also when it turns on after all this trouble, it shows past time,, like of the yesterday.

Please help,, service center executive is advising to replace motherboard,, he says some problem with motherboard connector. But i don't know,, if there is genuinely some problem with motherboard,, it should never turn on.

Hard to deduce but it could be a issue with the BIOS/CMOS chip too. Is the Vaio still under warranty ? If no then unfortunately, would need to have it checked again at the service center and follow those guys :(.
If its showing past time than that indicates (1) the CMOS battery is dead (2) Motherboard circuitry has issues.

Hi

From what you are describing this definetley sounds like the motherboard

I would advise that it be replaced if under guarantee as eventually it will stop working all together

What would be the probable cause of a sony vaio fs830/w of starting up & the 3 green leds on top stayed lit


You were FORMATTING it? Meaning... you were erasing the operating system? If that's the case, then... you have no operating system and the computer cannot boot up because it has no operating system to boot into.

Sir, while typing in my mail with my sony vai vgn cr 363 some keys are skipping. solution for this problem


Its either you have dirt in your key pad that is causing some keys to skip. It's not always an easy task cleaning some keypads, but one thing you could do, is use a blower to blow any dirt that could be sitting in between keys.
If that doesnt work, I would suggest considering getting a replacement. Its worth all the hussle. Or idealy you could get an external USB keypad that you could plug to you laptop
