Hi. I'm considering myself VERY lucky because my Sony Vaio was starting to act up (Display driver would quite functioning now and again, and PC would not always boot first time), so we got everything saved to an external disk drive, bought a new PC and I now have that one up and running pretty well. That all happened this past week. So I wanted to keep using my Sony Vaio as my second PC to handle business reports, etc., but not connect to the Internet. Anyway, wouldn't you know that now I cannot even get that old Sony to boot. When I turn on the monitor it shows the "No Input" box, as it should before the CPU is turned on. When I turn on the CPU, the fan starts, the LED flickers for about 2-3 seconds and then that's it. No more flickering LED, nothing on the display (still says No Input) but the fan just keeps running. I can do a cold shutdown (hold in the on/off button until it shuts down) wait a minute or two and try again...but still nothing. This is similar to what was happening the past couple of weeks...but then it would sometimes work. Now...no luck. Is this PC a goner or do you think I can still save it? I have moved it from sitting on a hardwood floor to sitting on a burber carpet. Could that be an issue...maybe it's overheating?
THANKS for any help you can offer.
