It worked for me at least the laptop booted and I am now backing up my files. I'm hoping it stays that way. Sure, maybe a bit slow since it's a bit old already yet it was working quite decently. Also, you were right about the plastic piece, so thanks. Look that up to see. Just wondering in case I could find a motherboard at a reasonable price.
If that doesn't work, try to work through the steps outlined by Sony support here. Then I was planning to upgrade to windows 8, so I turned off my system. And, the nice clerks at Best Buy didn't charge me anything. Arctic is a good brand. I think the dvd drive connection was a little loose after years of use. If all else fails you may have to purchase an operating system disk and re install windows. Click on the Vaio control centre icon above the search box.
From there, I decided that there may be a problem with the charging port. I couldn't find where to put the piece back in. You might also find some helpful advice or guidance on recovery options for your model in the forums for Vaio users I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you shone the torch on it you could see the desk top vaguely in the background. Hi, Thanks for the reply. I tried looking for solutions to this problem but the only things I can find are downloadable programmes which prevent it from happeneing rather than cure it.
Good luck Sometimes the f-10 button or which ever buttons to get back to factory install is the only hope. You could give the inside of the case a blowout with compressed air. I don't know if this is your problem, but try it and see what happens. My four-year-old sony vaio laptop is stuck on the vaio screen that comes up before anything else on startup. This worked fine for a while. The part to replace is like.

The blue screen is up now but Im not sure where to go from here. Sony does not give recovery disks on purchase anymore, you must create your own. If it was turning on before the disassembly and doesn't turn on after you've assembled it, it's most definitely you did something wrong. If you hear the hard-drive going 'doink doink doink' but not spinning up, then it's stuck. But later if fails again to switch on. Yes, I did click the Fn + the F7, several times waiting a little bit to see if it was just slow to respond.
It just came in yesterday, and to my dismay, the laptop is not charging with the new battery either. Take your time to read the solutions, apply what makes the most sense or seems most suitable in your situation, and follow the steps logically and you'll be able to sort it out. If the battery light on the front of the computer is blinking, the battery pack has reached a lowbattery condition, which may not allow the computer to start up. I've had that one with 3 laptops. .
One day it happen just like this when i tried to boot it. It's only 8 months old and I am so frautrated right now. And if this doesn't work I'd do the same with the cmos battery. The Notebook or Laptop will not start up To turn on the computer, press the power button. If one or the other is malfunctioning to the point it's not being picked up. It should start plugged in with no battery.
If there is any other information that I can provide, I'll be more than happy to do so. Check out the forums and get free advice from the experts. Buildup inside these vents impedes the cooling process. Turn off the computer 3. I got mad at the manager. The windows loading logo appears for a few seconds, but then it appears to restart again and the Vaio logo comes back on, asks for password, and the whole process starts again.
I think he said he did that to reset the bios or at least I think that is what he said he was resetting. Listen for the normal sounds of the hard drive resetting and spinning up. And if this doesn't work I'd do the same with the cmos battery. I have to do the same process over and over again whenever I want to use it. Try to reboot from safe mode but It also hangs. I have run startup repair several times - from my system and also from a windows cd - I have run all boot repair commands from the console also and nothing seems to work. When I got it going those 3 other times, if I turned it off, it started right up; but then when I left it off overnight, next day the problem returned.
