    I have a rather nice Sony Vaio VGN-S4xp that suddenly died on me. In normal operation all of the power dissappeared, the display went, fan/disc powered down and nothing will return.
    When I press power on I get power and battery flashing about 1/second and the wireless light at half this rate.
    This happens with any power configuration. Battery only, batt+mains, mains only.
    I have tried the 30 second reset.

    Any ideas what the error lights are telling me?
    Any experience of this type of fault?

    Next step for me is to trash the laptop as Sony quote £185 just to look at it and estimate £3-550 repair costs. Jokers.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Try wiggling the power cord. That could be a loose connection. If you take it down to a computer repair shop they could solder on a new DC jack which could make it work. Anyhow, a computer shop will be quicker and cheaper than sending it off to sony
