I took apart my vaio laptop (I have had experience with Vaio Laptops) and put it back together twice trying to figure out why the screen is blank and also the indicator (LED indicator) that looks like a cup does not lite up. Everything else works. The screen for the laptop is fine, its just that the laptop is 3 to 5 years old. The only reason I took it apart is because the ram had 512MB worth of ram and it only indicated that it has 256MB. I noticed it awhile ago, but it pissed me off so I took it apart and put it back together, I found out the reason the ram wasn't working. The ram needed to have something being forced on it with the lid closed, so it will reconize it. Any suggestions.

I am not familiar with that specific laptop, but I would assume that there would be a ribbon cable that comes from the monitor to connect to the laptop's motherboard. Have you checked that cable to make sure it is plugged in properly?

yes, PCG-FXA49 Vaio laptop. And yes I checked the ribbion cable yes fine. But theres a black cable with a round thing that can have a little screw to hold it and that turns the cup/bottle image on to the color (LED) orange. But, I don't know whewre to connect it?

Also, the model I had, the ram is under the cpu fan, so everything was coverd so I took it apart. I found the problem it was that something needed to be applied to the ram to keep it held down.

So you resovled your issue, it was that the RAM modules were not properly seated, correct?

yes, then I put the laptop back together and the screen was black but everything was on and the screen had the LED's running.

Happened to me on my HP Laptop once before.. I finally had to throw that beautiful piece... And i did exactly the same thing.. But in my case, while inserting the RAM i managed to bend a part in the seat... Tried fixing it with a screw driver, ended up breaking it :P Then i finally took it to the HP guys, they were charging me almost half the price I paid for the lappy, so decided to chuck it and buy myself a new one...

My Advice : Get it to a SONY Outlet, let them fix it up for u.. I'm pretty sure it'll still turn out to be cheaper coz the probability that someone wud screw something up in such intricate machinery is very large...
