Having problems with your Sony PC Laptops ?

I tried yesterday 6-7 times to turn it on

\015 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 workingthe same problem occurred 10 days back alsoi 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.\015

Answers :

Hard to deduce but it could be a issue with the BIOS/CMOS chip too. \015\012Is the Vaio still under warranty ? If no then unfortunately, would need to have it checked again at the service center and follow those guys :(. \015\012
\015\012If 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
