Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-N130G/W Notebook ?

Laptop battery and AC adapter

\015 Have a sony notebook (VGN-N130G) and I belive the battery is dead. It no longer holds a charge. Also, the AC adapter makes a weird chirping noise when it's plugged up. Could the AC be the problem or should I just replace both? Is it safe to buy a generic battery? Sony wants a lot of $$ for the battery.\015

Answers :

Replace the power supply first, chirping is not good, and if the supply has a low output it could be putting out just enough to run the machine and not enough to charge the battery. Starving the machine for power can damage the machine or the battery, so, you may still need a battery, but you won't know until you replace the supply. If you do need a battery, aftermarket or generic batteries are fine. I've used them and had no problems. Many times you'll find that the aftermarket batteries are made by the same company that the laptop manufacturer uses, they just don't have the label, it's this way with damn near all the laptop manufacturers.
