  1. So i was working on that PCG-V505EXP Sony vaio. I finally got the harddrive out and switched it out for one that works.

    When i put the computer back together... It would not power on. Most of the time I can see the light turn on for 1-2 seconds and then it dies out. Sometimes i dont even get power! What the heck is going on. I need to get this computer to work. I made a promise...

    I don't thinik it is the power Adapter since the power on light on the adapter still comes on. And the laptop turns on for 1 second. any ideas?

    Any ideas would help.

    Did you connect the Hard disk drive correctly?
    Jumper it correctly if necessary?
    It's a difficult problem to solve with just "I took it apart and when I put it back together it didn't turn on." type of thing.
    You could check that the power supply area inside the notebook isn't damaged/disconnected in any way maybe.

    I'm at a loss for what to tell you based on so little, and I didn't ever open up a Sony Vaio laptop much before, so I'm not really sure what to tell you.

    Check HD install, check power supply output with meter, and then tell us what you find.
