Hi, I have a Sony VAIO Laptop VGN-NR21M/S which has been working fine. The only problem was the battery wasn't holding it's charge and I was planning to buy a new one. Last night it shut down while I was running Virtual DJ software. No warning, no error message or blue screen. Just shut down. It won't start up if the battery is in, and if I run an AC only it works for a while and then shuts down in the same way.
I've run hardware tests and they say the CPU and memory are fine. The computer shut down while testing the hard drive, but as it's only a few months old I'm hoping thats not the cause. The Laptop is running vista 32 bit, but I'm sure it's not an OS problem as I have formatted the drive and there is no OS on there at the moment. Any help apreciated.
