2.5 year old Sony VAIO wont turn on Tags: Sony Vaio Components Last response: November 8, 2012 3:48 AM in Components Share dseniag November 8, 2012 1:02:21 AM Hello, My 2.5 year old sony VAIO VPCEB13FX/BI suddenly stopped working. I was typing away (work, I don't use it for gaming), and it made a slight pop then immediately shut off. Now when I press the power button, it lights, then immediately turns off. Sony said it sounded like a fan or thermal shift problem that would take weeks and $300 to fix which is not an option. A local repair store said it needed a new motherboard that would cost $300-400 and that I should just buy a new computer as their experience with Sony's has been negative. Can anyone help me sort out what is the real issue and what to do next? Thanks.
