Vaio VGN-B1VP recurring problem

Discussion in 'Laptops' started by ratman and bobbin, Nov 25, 2006.

  1. I was asked to check out this laptop. Symptoms: would not power up, battery
    in or out or adapter power. Sent off to repair shop who diagnosed a power
    controller problem and replaced the unit. After 2 days it packed up again
    and went back under warranty. Fixed again and lasted from May this year
    until yesterday. Now showing the same symptoms again, so presumably the
    power controller has died again.

    Anyone had similar problems with this model of laptop?

    Think best to tell my friend to bin this machine as I believe its likely to
    have another failure if repaired.

    Any comments would be appreciated!
