Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-C140G/B Notebook ?

I have sony vaio VGN-140G, no power on. The AC adapter is good. Only conect the mother board and no power on.


Answers :

Had the same problem - turns out to be the power supply on the motherboard. They want $500 to fix.
\015\012Another one for sale on ebay same problem. Seems to be a defect that conveniently hits a month after the warranty runs out.
Has the ac adapter been tested with a volt meter? Sounds like it could be the ac jack or the motherboard. try removing the battery and trying it. My company charges $100.00 to replace ac jacks. If it's the board try your luck on ebay.
