Having problems with your Sony VAIO FRV37 Notebook ?

Hello, SONy Pcg-FRV37,Power problems

\015 Hello, I bought a SONy Pcg-FRV37, and am having minor power problems with it. \015\012The laptop will run without a battery untill power demands incress (heavy processor use) then abruptly cut off. \015\012If I put the battery in, it will charge, however if the battery isnt fully charged, the laptop will rapidly cycle thru power states ( charging, on AC, on batt) when intensly used. And only cut off if battery is depleted. \015\012Also plugging a parasitic USB device in (iPhone, iPod, etc) will encurrage this irratic state change, and actually run battery down while Laptop is plugged up. \015\012However! If battery is fully charged this dosen't seem to be a problem.\015\012Also I've noticed that battery never changes to Charged, it will report 100% but will forever be "Charging"\015\012\015\012the computer looks new, and I got it for an unbelievable price. \015\012How do I go about fixing this?\015

Answers :

Clean the metal contacts on the Battery and in the compartment. Then, reset the BIOS to its default settings.
Next, plug in the AC Adaptor to charge the Battery.

If the issue persists then the problem may be related to the power circuitry.
