Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-FE550G Notebook ?

I have had a Sony Vaio notebook, refuses to start

\015 I have had a Sony Vaio notebook, for about 1.5 years. Recently, it just refuses to turn on for no reason at all. I mean, the power button does not work, and nothing starts. Just when I was about to give up (3 weeks later) and tried one last time on the power button, it turned back on! After a couple of months of working fine, it died again. A couple of months later, it came back alive again! I did absolutely nothing to it. It never dies when I am using it \342\200\223 only when the laptop is shut off, and the next time I try to turn it on, it does not respond. The only clue that I have is that windows takes a long time to load (but that may just be the many programs I have installed on it). I tried cleaning the fan, but no use. The battery is not the greatest, but it does not run even with the battery removed. It does not seem to be overheated because the processor does not even get any power to it. After 2 repair shops, nobody seem to be able to tell me what the problem is. I would greatly appreciate it if you could help! Thanks\015

Answers :

I would bet it is the DC power jack. It's like the biggest problem that I fix with laptops. Some people change the whole motherboard, but even if you search online, its that little circular power port that is usually the culprit. AND, they do work, then die, work, die, etc.

\015\012This usually proves it: When you plug in the AC adapter, when the laptop is dead and not turning on, your battery charging LED also does not go on right? If so, I would be that's the problem, you can have the port changed, but a lot of people really charge a fortune when it is a simple job. Contact me if you'd like, I do repairs.

Sony VAIO VGN-FZ410E does not boot up. On power the laptop seems to go through normal sequence but the display remain white. The unit stays on with no display and reboots after several minutes. CTRL-Alt-Del sequence causes the laptop to attempt to re-boot but with no display. Putting a bootable cd in the drive shows a similar behaviou ie. nod display (screen reamins white). Any idea what causing the problem?
