Im wondering if i could ask of your expert advice on the above matter. I have a 3 year old sony vaio 3.6GHZ celeron powered. After shutting down a game the background screen went blue (no background came up, the icon were as if highlighted and the cpu icon appeared in the bottom toolbar. I opened another low power requiring program and it ran for about 30 mins and then suddenly died with no warning. It was plugged in and battery was fully charged. It now wont switch back on and when all the power (bat& mains) is removed and plugged back in the battery charge light comes on for a nano second when the 'on' button is pressed and thats it! No power, no life, nothing!
Is this a motherboard/CPU problem or something else?? It doesnt appear to be the battery or power adapter as these work seperately?
I dont think its related to overheating, was on a desk fan/vents clear, plus i have disconnected everything, bat and mains for 24 hours then retried, mains only, bat only, left mains and bat plugged in for hours... all nothing. Still will not switch on. Its not even drawing any power from the adapter as its not warming up??!
Ok thanks. Should i take it to a shop and get them to look at it? Can whatevers gone be replaced easily? Someone mentioned a new cpu's expensive? Is that likely to be the cause/ only thing as the laptops in very good condition still and otherwise was still very fast?? Sony Vaios are not cheap!!
