I have a Sony Vaio (different from the model I just previously posted on my other forum topic) and I seem to be having this problem for the second time. At some point my computer suddenly turns off and when I try to turn it back on, it does not turn on. The first time it happened I let all the battery power drain out for 2 days and then charged it and it worked.
This does not seem to work for the second case. I left my computer without the charger for about a day and a half but I still hear the fan running even if the computer doesn't turn on. I plug the charger in, the charger light comes up saying it's working but the computer fails to turn on.
Also, Vaio requires a screwdriver to open up the battery so I haven't tried it because I do not have the right tools.
Could this be a problem with my hard drive?
Other things noticed about the computer
* blue screens when watching videos online, such as YouTube.
* tends to have very loud noise with the fan and heats up quickly.
