    Default My Sony Viao Laptop Wont Turn on/Boot

    I need help i have a friend who has a sony viao laptop thats about 1 half years old. Now when you push the power button it acts like ist going to start and it makes a little noise its like right where the fan would start up and something would show on the screen but it stops there. Is this a motherboard problem or is it like a power supply problem we have taken out the batery and tryed to start it up with it just pluged in that didn't work we also tried in the opposite way that didn't work. We are mad because it isnt that old at all and now its doing this. Is the Laptop garbage. Please help.

    I would try to boot it in safe mode by tapping on F8 during start up. If you get it to start in safe mode, shut it down, then see if it will boot. If it still doesn't boot, try booting into safe mode again, but hit NO to go to system restore. Pick a date before you had any problems and go back to that. Charlie

    Default Its not even that far.

    The laptop doesnt show anything on the screen and it doesent even boot up enought to get to safe mode its like right to the point when booting a computer where the fans of the computer would turn on but then it just stops before anything gets on the screen

    Are you getting any beeps when it tries to start ?

    Naturally lap tops are very hard to open up and work on, so probably going to need to take to a shop if you are getting nothing.

    No one can answer that question, except the owner. If they were happy with it, before it broke, my advise is to pay the money to have a pro to check it out.

    Cheers
