  • THis Juuuuuust happened to me last week... !!! My one brother thinks it's a problem where the outlet cord plugs into the laptop, but my other bro fixed it 'temporarily' w/ a new battery... Comp's are such a mystery. I am going to take it in soon because he is the ONLY one that can make it work LOL literally I can't move it or turn it off w/o going black again!!

    Take it in, they will tell you if it is worth it to fix vs. replace.

  • It is a SONY Vaio. The charger is on (green light) also it appears that the lights on the keyword are functioning but nothing on the screen.

  • I'd have to look up the codes. Beeps mean different things for different brands.
