Hi,
My Sony VAIO laptop stopped working since last week.The moment I press main switch button,hard disc light turns green only for a fraction of a second.I tried with battery and current both but nothing works.
Any idea?

Sounds like you have a bad Motherboard and / or CPU. I had the same problem, but with a PC. After pressing the power button, the fans would spin for a split second. The lights would also turn on for a split second.

A cheap fix, is replacing your CPU Fan. Intel CPUs have a defense mechanism that will prevent itself from starting if the CPU fan isn�t working. If this doesn�t solve the problem, then examine your Motherboard and CPU for burned residue. If you discover any burned residue, then chances are that you might have to replace your CPU and / or Motherboard.

Good Luck!

I believe motherboard/CPU of laptop is very expensive.Its better to purchase new PC than repairing this one I think.My laptop is 4.5 years old.
