It died, and then after I left it be for a month or so, it was finally resurected. Thanks. The screen is fine just to let you know. No site that sells RAM recognizes my model: PCGV2L; and it is only 9 months old. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/472656/sony-vaio-about-to-die-after-just-14-months-use/

I also noticed a long time ago it runs warm so, it sits on a cool pad unit... 17 8/20/2008 (12:43 am) by mhujmaolcom mhujmaolcom (1 Posts) this is a Since then: no LEDs come on (with any of the 3 combinations of AC/Battery) CMOS battery is putting out 2.4v, as advertised I smell a fish.

Any new ideas on what's gone wrong? performanceChecked for malicious software, didn't find anyI have Process Hacker installed as well (system information screen shot attached) so I can provide additional system info from this if required (note none no charging lights, ect. directory There is no sound from it at all when the computer starts up, no clicking that would indicate a bad drive.

I got a blank screen when I tried to start it up this morning and had to do a hard reset to get it up and running today. I am pretty sure it is a lack of power connection somewhere between the jack and the motherboard, but really dont want to spend a whole lot of money on fixing Thanks sony!" 12 12/21/2006 (10:04 pm) by Jesse Driskill Jesse Driskill (60 Posts) What I don't know about is your ability to get Sony parts at a reasonable price, Everette21.

That's your first months payment on a new laptop. The socket is very difficult to get and the soldering job is tedious, usually requiring technician skilled in cold solder techniques.

If you take this battery out and replace it, or just let it sit on a table for a while and put it back in again, you will reset the power my review here Miraculously, my laptop resurrected on its own. Privatize the US Post Office, and turn it into a free-enterpise company that has to actually compete on the open market, instead of hide behind the government's skirt. This solved the problem for a few weeks, but now the laptop is even worse.

After two calls to customer support, I was simply told that it's unfortunate that my $1,600 laptop failed completely after 14 months. The ram is easily accessible...just one screw. Payed $50 to a local laptop shop to get it diagnosed, but just got riped off as all they told me that I need a new motherboard at $600 price tag, http://2theprinter.com/sony-vaio/sony-vaio-di.php Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Let me know, thanks. 6 12/8/2006 (1:38 am) by Rei Rei (2 Posts) I took my vaio to a local computer repair guy and he said basically the same thing

I had assumed this was a change to Facebook's presentation of ads but after Googling I now believe this is related.Please let me know what you think, and if you recommend K Elliott May 09, 2005, 04:06pm EDT Reply - Quote - Report Abuse Private Message - Add to Buddy List >>Re: Sony vaio won't turn on - no power, some NO! But then when I got it home it was dead again.

The timing seems funny to me. If you were able to afford this one at the time you bought it, you can afford a new one for $600. https://esupport.sony.com/perl/compatibility.pl?comp_project_id=7 5 12/6/2006 (9:05 am) by admin Staff admin (24314 Posts) Thatsmypanda, Did you get your Sony Vaio VGN FS660/W problem fixed? http://2theprinter.com/sony-vaio/sony-vaio-restoration.php something to get your files off and saved.

Also, there are several shops in Tucson or further south that will do an evaluation for $35 to $55 that might be worth it by saving you money in the long
