I dropped my sony vaio VGN-S230 and a screw came out and i could hear another rattling around. Opening it up it appears they may have come from one side of hdd brackets so I put them back in. (I could find n other place that had screws of that size). But I am still getting just a faint VAIO on startup and then goes dark. before reseating memory and putting screws back in I would get the faint VAIO but it would poweroff after about 30 seconds.
I checked the video connections, tried hooking to external monitor to no avail and reseating hdd and memory.
So now it holds power, a faint VAIO at startup and then dark screen. Any ideas?????
