    Hi, I'm new.. etc.. :D

    I'm the process of trying to fix a Sony Vaio PCG-FX105K, running Windows 2000.
    Amongst other things, the battery doesnt seem to charge.. the diagnostic (which I assume is Sony's own) reports the battery is 0% charged, and will require 7½ hours to charge..
    Only other redeeming feature, is that the battery light flashes twice every couple of seconds..

    Any pointers would be appriciated :eek:

    Hi :0

    7 1/2 hours for charging indicates that the system must think that the battery needs a full charge, which could indocate a number of things

    the battery charging transformer that is connected to the power supply is maybe not working properly

    the connection to the battery are disconnected or connected wrong (check that the ground wire and hot lead are correct

    the battery is not good and connot be charged any more ( you can check this with another battery)

    one thing you can do is use a multi-tester meter to check the input (charging leads) to the battery .. this way you can see if the voltage is getting to the battery

    if yes, then replace battery

    if no, replace the connection to the battery


    that is all I can suggest with the information given

    good luck
