My Sony Vaio VPCSA23GX (S Series) will only startup on AC power. When the battery is in it will not turn on, with or without the AC plugged in. I have tried a new battery and am experiencing the same issue. I have also tried a factory reset so it must be the hardware. Any recommendations?

It is not under warranty and I would like to resolve the issue myself.

Thank you!

Remove the cover when you removed for replacing battery.
Pull the battery out with unlock nob.
place about 1mm x 10mm x 50mm size of soft piece on the other side where you don't have electrical contact.
Put the battery back in.

This problem seems caused by too much room for battery.

Good luck!
