Startup issues in Sony® VAIO E Series
Guidelines for troubleshooting startup Issues in Sony VAIO E Series
Sony's new VAIO E Series laptop comes in a 14-inch screen size. Each E series version has a web button that provides quick Internet access without system boot up. Sometimes the laptop may not start properly or even if it starts there might be some booting problem which can be fixed at home. There are many situations where the laptop might not start such as when the power button is on, the user may not see any video on the screen. In some situations, it may start but with a flickering screen and such problems can be solved by troubleshooting the false images.
The following are the possible reasons for improper startup of Sony VAIO E Series and tips to resolve the issues:
- Booting problem
- Test AC adapter
- Reseat the memory module
When the system gets overloaded with huge amount of data there will not be enough space to load more data which may lead to improper system start up. Overloading can be avoided by installing only the desktop, power supply and the processor and also by uninstalling all other components. After this if the system starts working then there is a possibility of the uninstalled component to be defective.
Booting is the process of starting the PC and the operating system. In general on boot up, the user’s computer might beep once or twice. As this function is normal, the user need not worry about it. In case if the beep noise keeps repeating without any display and messages with error then this situation might indicate some kind of defect.
The AC adapter is used for testing the laptop and the adapter’s output voltage is tested using a voltmeter just to make sure that the output voltage is correct. Usually the improper start issue might not be related to the adapter as it provides power to the laptop without having to possess any problem. For better results, unplug the adapter wait for few minutes and then try to start the laptop again by plugging the adapter. In case of replacement the new adapter’s voltage should be same as the old one.
Reseat the memory module by removing it from the motherboard slot and by inserting the module back to the same slot. The user can try installing it into the different slot if available. In case if two memory modules are installed then try to remove those one after the other and start the laptop with only one installed memory module. If the laptop starts properly with single memory module in both slots but might not start with the second memory module in both the slots, it could be faulty. In such condition the memory module can be replaced.
