I have a Sony Vaio PCG-7Z2L. When I plug the AC adapter in, the battery LCD blinks as if it's charging. But then I push the power button and the power LCD turns on, but nothing else happens. Any subsequent push of the power button makes the battery LCD come on for as long as I have the button pushed. When the AC is unplugged at this point, the two LCDs blink at a regular interval and this doesn't stop until I remove the battery.

And by LCD I mean LED... Either way.

Hello, and Welcome


See if power cycling the computer will work. Remove the battery and power adapter, hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Replace the power adapter but do not replace the battery. Power on the computer and see if it boots.


You may want to replace the CMOS battery. Sometimes a dead battery will prevent a laptop from booting.
