I have a Sony TZ which was run over by a car a few weeks back. The only issue at first was the screen was cracked - it turned on and I had been using it with the broken screen for a couple weeks with no issues.
Todya my replacement screen arrived and I replaced it and now it won't turn on at all. What could I have done to cause that? Any ideas? Will it be repairable if I take it to a shop for less than the cost of a replacement (TT I guess)?
i got my laptop last month (VGN-NS110E) and i've recently been having this issue with the wifi switch as I had a MBR error on the partition and had to format everything...green light doesn't go on and i can't get it to turn on with smartWi...Sony tech support sucks bigtime....I am thinking it may be a hardware issue and I just want them to take a look at it but the "tech" told me I need to install the recovery disk first which i hate because all the unneeded extra bs that comes on it....I have misplaced my recovery disks that came with the laptop so I first installed vista ultimate and then sony told me only supports vista home premium. I don't want to order replacement disk knowing that it may not work...what I could try or where I would be able to find the recovery disk i need...?
Ive been having a problem with my laptop since Friday. Basically i went to turn it on and it didnt turn on so i cleaned all the dust out of the charger and my battery and tried it again and it managed to turn on. However, after being on it for around 15 minutes it just cut out on me. And now every time i go on it, it cuts out after a little while of it being on. I then cant turn it on for around an hour then it manages to turn on and then cut off and im back to square one.
Its nothing to do with the charger because that works fine so its clearly something to do with the hardware. Has anyone had problems like this before and is it easy to sort out?

I have a x201 cto using 64bits Win 7. The wireless adapter is intel advanced-N 6200. However, I found my wireless always turn off¬†suddenly¬†and I can not turn it on anymore (even using Fn+F5) until reboot.
Does anyone know how to turn off the beep the function key makes when you change the volume or brightness on the SR model? I have Vista, and the Event Service folder doesn't show up in my program files so I can't change the pi
I was just sitting there browsing the internet and the damn thing just shut off and now it won't turn back on. The battery was totally charged... so does that just mean it's fried or what? It's a year and a half old so .
After I put my laptop on sleep mode and shut the lid down, I always see the computer turn back on automatically after only a few minutes (I can hear the laptop working and the light turns green, although the monitor remains off).
Why is this so? The laptop also seems to turn off after a while it is turned back on from sleep mode.
I also notice my Z having a particular video error at times. That is, sometime, the laptop monitor turns black for a few seconds, turns back on at the highest brightness setting, and a error message pops up saying something about how it was unable to find a driver.
I can't seem to turn on my wireless receiver. The switch is in the on position and I use the VAIO PC Wireless LAN wizard diagnostic. It tells me
Software WLAN Switch is off Your software wireless LAN switch is off. VAIO PC Wireless LAN Wizard is unable to determine which application enabled wireless LAN. Please enable wireless LAN before proceeding.
What is "Software WLAN switch"? There is a plastic switch on the front of the laptop with "Wireless LAN" written above it, it is in the ON position. I don't know what is being referred to by "Software WLAN switch". How do I enable it? I really miss the simplicity of Intel Proset's Utility.
I have a 12'' sony vaio with a 16V power adapter. My battery is not good anymore, it was not even holding for 20Min, but my problem now is that the computer does not turn on without the battery at all. I have to leave it charging for hours, then it will go on, but in the middle of the windows loading process it shuts down and does not show any signs of life until you leave it charging for another hour.The voltage output out of the power supply shows 14.70 ~ 15.20 never gets to 16V. Now, comes the questions...
This particular laptop needs a good battery to " buffer" power and the AC adapter only charges the battery but does not have enough Amps to run the computer without the battery?
Do i have a Bad power adapter that is not even charging the battery properly?
Well about 20 minutes ago I plugged in my XPS 13 to charge then went away for a few minutes. Before putting it on to charge I had just closed the screen as I usually do and when I opened it didn't resume from sleep. It is the late 2012 XPS 13 running windows 8, i5 and 8gb RAM. None of the LED lights on the side of the laptop that indicate how much battery life the laptop has left are turning on when I press the button and I am getting really worried. I bought the laptop with a 2 year warranty so I thought I would post on here first before contacting customer support. The bottom of the laptop doesn't feel hot at all so I am fairly sure it is not overheated.
I was using my Dell XPS 15 l502x when it turned off (didn't shut down just turned off instantly) and now it won't power on.
Battery shows full power but i get nothing when pressing the power button and it has now been off for 1 hour.
I have tried battery in + AC, battery in alone, no battery + AC and none of it works.
When the AC power is connected the charging light does not come on either.
No indication as to what the issue is, it wasn't hot, there wasn't a burning smell, had only been on for ten minutes, had a full battery, was AC connected and the AC adaptor is fine (it has the normal blue glowing light).
I have a Dell XPS 12 i7 256 gig (first model) and similar to many of the posts, have had issues particularly with the wireless connection. I have a specific issue however that my computer won't turn on. At last use I was simply watching a movie on it (fell asleep) and the next morning when I went to turn it on, the backlit keys come on, but that is where it stops. Nothing comes up on the screen and after 32 seconds, the backlight goes off. ( I have tried it a few times and it is always about 32 seconds)
It is also completely unresoponsive during this time (pressing keys, or the windows button doesn't change the time before the backlit keys go off).You can hear some form of activity but after the 32 seconds, nothing.
I have tried holding the on button for an extend period for a reset but nothing.It is fully charged and the first time I have had this issue.I am travelling overseas at the moment and cant seem to get onto the tech support wihin my country.
Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit (Clean install on empty hard drive, only basic drivers/no crapware) Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit (Dual boot) Core 2 Duo T7700 x2 Corsair 2GB DDR2-667MHz RAM GeForce 8600M GT 256MB GDDR3 320GB 5400rpm HDD (Samsung -_-)
Recently I dropped my laptop from my bed, making the bottom left hand corner of the palmrest (i.e. the part right above the HDD) bend and open outwards, so I bought a new Product Red palmrest off ebay and replaced it myself - worked a charm, had no problems for two days.
The problem occurred today: I decided I would restart my computer to work on my Windows 7 partition as it was the partition without Steam. It shut off like normal, but it stopped at a black screen - the Dell startup screen never showed up. I had to switch off the computer by holding down the power button.
Now, when I turn it on, everything starts up as normal for a split second, then all the lights on the multimedia interface go out, and nothing shows up on the screen...I can hear the hard drive running like normal, so I doubt it's a hard drive failure.
The techie at my uni residence says that either the LCD display wiring has gone faulty, or the LCD burnt out (or some other bit of hardware), but I find it funny that this should happen AFTER a restart...isn't that a bit of a coincidence? I opened up my laptop to reconnect the cabling, but nothing seems to work...a motherboard failure perhaps?
