Sony :: Motherboard Dead. Model #s

May 7, 2010

On the back of my Sony laptop, the model says PCG-6L2L, but when I took it in to servicing to a SONY authorized dealer for a diagnosis, the paper it came back with said Model VGNSZ260P. What's up with that? Is this the same thing, just different numbers? My laptop is a Z series, but nowhere on my laptop does it say anything about Z series or VGN. Similarily, my friend just bought a brand new Z series laptop that was sold as a VGN (over $2500), yet again, on the back of his there is a PCG model number and nowhere does it say anything about VGN or Z series?

Secondly, and more importantly.

The diagnosis came back negative. Everything works (cpu, ram, video, lcd, etc etc), but the actual system board, motherboard, is dead. When I boot up, it shows the SONY screen and I can get to BIOS, but as soon as it hits bios, or about 5 seconds after SONY symbol, everything freezes.

Naturally, the $800 they wanted is ridiculous. I am very tech savvy, especially with computers, I've been building them for a very long time, but have little experience with laptops. I am convinced that I can fix this if I can find a motherboard for it....

Acer :: Where Or What, Is The Motherboard Manufacturer And Model 5100

Aug 8, 2009

I have had a breakthrough in my laptop experience. I actually opened it up.

I followed the manual and no problems as of yet.

My question is the point in me opening up my laptop was to find the motherboard make and model and revision version number. I was checking to see if there was a bios update for this laptop and the advice given was to get the exact motherboard make etc..

and the best advice on how to get an exact match was to open it up. I did and I searched as far as my cheap tools would let me. I was able to remove the cpu fan but when I went to remove the cpu heatsink I could not get the screws to budge. According to the manual the cpu is beneath the cpu heat sink and this is where I thought I needed to go to find the motherboard make and model etc...

Acer :: Is My Motherboard Dead- 5100

Jul 31, 2009

it boots to the acer start screen where you can press F2 to get in to bios but nothing happens when I press F2 and it justs goes to this screen:

And this text is on for like 3 secs then goes away then comes back for 3 secs and so on.

If I put in the acer recovery cd it loads the image file, then theres just a green background with a mouse pointer and the mouse is not functional..

Doesent sound good, right?

there is no HDD in it.

Dell :: E1505 Not Booting: Suspect Dead Motherboard

Feb 23, 2009

After a night away from town, leaving my laptop on as I usually do, came back to find a black screen with computer still running. I suspect Windows Update ran and had trouble with something. Powered off, turned back on, and the startup hung as the OS was loading.

Safe mode said the hang was at crcdisk.sys (I searched for this on the internet, but was not able to do much with it, as will soon be seen). I got my Vista installation CD and tried to boot from it, but it would not -- not even if I removed the hard drive from the computer. A friend had a similar laptop, and we exchanged hard drives; his would not boot in mine, but mine would in his (all data intact). I tried reseating the RAM;

no good. Another friend lent me a Ubuntu boot cd, which also did not complete loading. Long story short, I can't get anywhere where I can do anything meaningfully useful. I can't get to a command line to run chkdsk, or to the internet to flash my BIOS, or to a text editor to write papers for school. The people I've talked with say probably the motherboard is bad.

I was able to get to an unhelpful IT fellow for a few minutes, and he was able to boot Windows 98 from CD, but he didn't let me do anything, or have the CD. I'm going to try to find one and see what I can do from it .....

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Beep Codes Indicate A Dead Motherboard

Nov 6, 2014

My wife's T400 (2767-CP9) died recently. The beep codes indicate a dead motherboard. Her HD is fine and in fact I was able to pull off data after putting the HD in another laptop and booting with a live Linux CD. So...the data is recovered and safe with nothing lost.
Question is: I have found a few used T400's and am about to purchase one very close to hers and was curious if I would be able to just put her HD in the machine and just go from there.
The machine in question is also a T400, but the exact model number is 2767-H7U. Would the difference between a 2767-CP9 and 2767-H7U matter?
here are the stats for both: URL...

The only difference besides batteries seems to be the processor.If windows balks at this, can I just do a "product recovery" in the new machine with the old HD? The only reason this is an issue is.....her laptop was a refurb unit purchased from IBM and came with win7 as OS. The replacement machine in question has windows vista installed.

Acer :: Confusing Aspire Model/sub Model Numbers

Mar 5, 2009

I'm trying to find info on an aspire... Not the model # itself as that is not the problem, but the sub model#...

The model is Acer Aspire 8930G, but the sub model # is 6963 and that is where my research seems to go dry... Does anyone have info on this sub model #?

Also i might ask is how user friendly is the 8930G for upgrades as for the processor and video? The current processor is the T5800 with the 9600m nvidia... Would it make sense to upgrade and what is the potential of this 8930G with the T5800?

Sony :: Vaio Model Vpccw17fx

Jan 6, 2010

When I go to watch Lost on Hulu it plays fine in small screen. When I go to full screen it is fine until I pause it. Then when I resume play the picture is choppy. Then to get rid of choppy play I must either exit the site and relog in or if I hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete then close Ctrl-Alt-Delete it will resume normal play until I hit pause again. I have had it back to BB for the problem but they dont know what is causing it. I cannot exchange it for another because the new products are coming out in a few weeks and this one is no longer available. I really like this one and I cannot believe this is a major issue. I really dont want to exchange this unit I would rather have it repaired even if I have to do it myself.

Sony :: BIOS For Model: VGN-SZ260P

Jun 21, 2009

I bought this laptop for about 2 and a half years and I got the extended warranty for 3 years. After I bought it about 3-4 months after I have called and asked for the BIOS password but they stalled and stalled and stalled and I never obtained it. Now I call again to ask for the BIOS password w/ all the information they are acquiring like receipt etc. Now they say that my warranty has expired. Are they not supposed to give all information of the laptop to the customer that purchased their products? I need the BIOS to reformat my OS..

Sony :: Recovery Disk Not Wokring On SZ Model

Jun 10, 2009

My brother has a vgn-sz436n, he bought it from asia. recently his sz cannot boot in to normal windows mode, but can get into safe mode. so I figure a way to get into windows mode and made a copy of the sony recovery disk. I start to restore his computer with the disk by pressing F10 in the startup. however it would only install half way, when it restart itself, same thing happened, I cannot get into the windows, all black screen.
so I decide to try install XP, and turn out XP can install perfectly... so I try to do the recovery disc agian, I press F10 in the startup, nothing happened, it just sent me to XP.

How can I recover the vista using the backup reocovery disk? what do I do now?
