Sony Vaio laptop green light flashing 03:41 03 Jan 2018

Hi all

I recently cleaned my laptop fan and when I tried to turn it on the green light on the on switch keep flashing every 3 or 4 seconds. When I charge my laptop, the orange light is fine.

Someone please help me ASAP! I need my laptop for schooling.

Thank you in advance :)

Have you tried checking the manual?

How did you clean the fan?

Can you see if the Fan is turning?

Have you tried? Taking the battery out > Turning it On > Turning it Off > Replacing the Battery > Turning it on again. 08:00 03 Jan 2018

What do you mean by checking the manual? Sorry I dont really know much about technology.. I cleaned the fan by unscrewing it from it's place and getting rid of the dust with a small brush with soft bristles. I chrcked the fan and it's not working... what could be the problem? I tried that method but it didn't work.

Thank you for replying !!

"what could be the problem?"

The problem could be that you have incorrectly refitted the fan after cleaning it. 15:26 03 Jan 2018
