My Sony Vaio Model PCG-61611L LED Green Light Turns on but nothing else happens

When I turn on my Sony Vaio Model PCG-61611L, the green LED light goes on, but nothing much happens. The laptop is from 2010 and is never abused, so I do not know what has happened. It just started doing this on occasions and now I can't turn it on at all. Any suggestions?

shoemanfl,

 

It looks like you have no POST issue.  Does the caplock/numlock light up when you press it?  Have you try connecting it to an external monitor to see if it's a dim display issue?  If it's a no POST, try reseating the ram or using it one at a time...you can also remove the optical drive and the hard drive to see if you can boot to no operatiing system found.  If you can't still the unit would require service...

Nyler,

 

It's possible that you have a no POST or a dim display.  Try reseating the memory to see if that will work.  If not, try shining a flashlight at the LCD and see if you can see anything.  Also try connecting it to an external monitor.

 Did you get your laptop fixed?? I went to turn on my Sony Vaio PCG - 61611L and the green power light was already on, but the screen was black and the caps, scroll, and num lock lights were out. I could hear the fan was on but nothing would happen if I moved the mouse pad or hit any button on the keyboard. I did all of the solutions that everyone mentioned on youtube, such as removing the battery and holding the power button for 30 sec, resetting the RAM, still nothing... Then late last night I figured out the solution on my own, relieved that I didnt lose any info or pictures..  Email me if you want to know how to fix it, only takes a couple of seconds...

Here's how I got it to work, follow these steps in this order...

 

1. If the computer is off, leave it off... If not hold the power button for 5 seconds until it turns off.

 

For the next step locate the button next to the ALT to the right of the space bar, ( it looks like a dropdown with an arrow on it) Just refer to it as the dropdown button...

 

2. When the computer is off, at the same time push the dropdown button and the Assist button (next to the power button) at the same time, and it should turn on...

 

 

let me know if this helps you out, I was relieved when my laptop turned on, hope it works out for ya...

Unfortunately this didn't work for me.  Pressing the dropdown & Assit buttons seem to power it on like pressing the power button, but nothing happens other than the power button turning green.  The screen and no oher lights come on.  I hear the fan running though
