Can't run my laptop on battery, only on ac adapter
My battery is unrecognized. Sony sent me a fresh battery. Laptop will only work plugged in without the battery. It started when my son tried to clean the metal fins on the laptop that the battery goes into. I think he shorted out the power board. Can I find just the part? It is a Sony Vaio

I would contact Sony about it. You might be able to get it fixed under warranty.
