Hi I'm a new poster and pretty much a newbie in computers, so I'll try my best to explain my problem and want some feedbacks or solutions ><" My problem is that my laptop, which is a Sony PCGV505EX, refuses to turn on. It's just about 3 years old. The problem occured when I brought the laptop from my home to school, when I took it out at school it didn't even turn on. The night before I put it to hibernate. I thought it was a battery problem, so I tried plugging into AC only and taking out the battery pack but no response. The green light on the AC adapter suggests that power is going into the laptop but then it doesn't turn on any lights/fan or anything at all. My friend tried using a different AC adapter and it also would not start up. Normally when you have power into a laptop u should have a light on indicating u're charging batteries but in my case no light even shows up when I turn it on. Unfortunately my warranty has expired so I'm not sure where I can take it to fix. I currently live in Vancouver, Canada. I know that if I bring it back to Sony they can fix it but probably cost a lot $$$. I appreciate any advice or solutions to my problem. Thank you.
