Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-FS640W Notebook ?

Sony Vaio vgn-fs640w does not power up nor does it

\015 I own a Sony Vaio VGN-FS640W. Couple of nights back, \015\012while I had been surfing the net since a few hours, I heard a \015\012pop sound all of a sudden, and the laptop turned off completely \015\012within a second. There was no smoke or nothing. None of the \015\012LEDs come on nor is there any sound from the fan or hard drive.\015\012Nothing! It's a complete dead duck. I opened it up but did not \015\012find any burnt spots nor anything out of whack. Battery is fully\015\012charged as off the night of incidence. HELP! I am using my \015\012iPhone to surf and find solutions. Thanks in advance.\015

Answers :

I went to the Sony Vaio support site for your model specifically and they mention a battery recall. There is a place on the site requiring specific information about your system and your battery to see if you are eligible for the recall. I would try this route to see if it resolves your issue. If not, I would say it is a blown transistor and you need to replace the motherboard. This means buying a new system, as Sony VAIO laptops are very proprietary and hard to find parts for.

Good Luck,
