Tried to start Sony laptop model PCG-4G1M with Win XP - the laptop does not start !
No light in on/off switch or in battery indicator.
Tried to start just the CD player with its own A/V MODE switch - same story, no light, no response at all.
When I turned the computer off last week, battery was at 70%, never had power problem with battery charged at this level.
Plugged in the charger (which works perfectly well), in hope it will help - again computer did not turn on it simply looks dead.
Removed battery and wiped the pins properly and gently - still the same, laptop does not respond to on/off switch.
Got 2 tips - to remove battery for half hour then plug it back. Also, to try start the laptop with battery removed, directly with charger. None of tips worked - laptop still can't start.
The laptop has been used properly all the time , no drops, shaking, hits, overheat, or any form of mishandling.
This refusal to start comes as a complete surprise, never happened before and I desperately need documents with my study assignment
At the present time I neither can afford to pay what repairmen usualy charge nor buying a new machine.
Can somebody ,please, tell me how to bring this laptop back to life?
Thanks in advance
