Sony VAIO SVE14AJ16L Troubleshooting
This troubleshooting page will help you diagnose problems with the Sony VAIO SVE14AJ16L.
Computer Will Not Power On
The laptop will not display any sign of powering up.
Faulty Power Adapter
Ensure the power adapter is plugged in to a outlet and the charge light is on. If the light is not present , and the adapter is plugged in, the adapter is faulty. Consider purchasing a new adapter.
Ensure the light on the adapter is on. Then make sure the adapter is connect to the laptop. If the laptop only powers on when the adapter is plugged in, regardless of charging time, then the battery is defective.
Keyboard/Keys Not Responding
The keys on your keyboard won't respond or appear to be broken or missing.
If the entire keyboard fails to respond, try replacing or take it into a repair shop.
Keys Are Stuck In Place
When keys can't be pressed, there may be something below the physical key holding it up. To fix this, remove the key and clean any small objects inbetween. You may need to wipe off the area underneath. Once it is sufficiently clean, snap the key back into position.
Keys Are Missing
If keys on the keyboard are missing, replace them.
Computer Won't Boot
Your computer does not load the Operating System and instead brings you to an error message.
Not Enough RAM
If your computer crashes during normal usage, crashes during memory intensive tasks, or beeps and will not boot up, this means you have bad RAM or that you do not have enough RAM.
Hard Drive Error
Even though you have a hard drive in your computer, there may be an error on it. This can happen when the user shuts off the computer by pressing the power button instead of initiating the shutdown sequence through the operating system. To resolve this issue, get a Windows DVD for the version that you have. Please note that the specific version does not matter, only that it is for Windows XP, Vista, 7, or 8. Boot to the DVD, and choose “Repair your computer,” then click next. On this screen, pick “Startup Repair” and let it run. After this, your Sony VAIO SVE14AJ16L should boot correctly. If your computer does not boot correctly and still has issues, you may need to replace your hard drive.
Audio is Distorted
You have trouble listening to sounds from your computer.
Loose Headphone Jack
Test audio through the computer speakers, then test it using headphones. If the audio is only distorted while listening via headphones, the audio jack or the headphones themselves may be faulty. Audio that cuts in and out is often a sign of a loose audio jack, so make sure the audio jack is fully inserted in the computer.
Failure to Read CD's and DVD's
Your Sony VAIO SVE14AJ16L will not read any CD's or DVD's.
Broken/Defective Optical Drive
If your Sony VAIO SVE14AJ16L optical drive does not open or does not read CD's or DVD's, the optical drive may be broken and needs to be replaced.
The monitor on your Sony VAIO SVE14AJ16L doesn’t show anything, and you know the computer is turned on.
Make sure that the display is not accidentally disabled. To do this, press one of the “Fn” keys in the lower corner of the keyboard and then press “F2.” If the display was disabled by accident, then this will re-enable the display.
If the above action does not fix the problem, repeat the previous instruction once more, hold down the Windows key, and then push “P” twice. The computer may have been previously set to “Projector mode;” doing the action above will convert it back to “Computer Only.”
Video is Distorted
Video image is distorted, blurry, or discolored.
Outdated Video Driver
If certain videos flicker, appear blurry, or change to incorrect colors, the most probable cause for this issue is an outdated video driver. To update the video driver, go to this siteand download the appropriate video driver by checking for the correct operating system.
Device is Overheating
While you are working, your computer randomly shuts off without notification.
Dust in Vents or Fans
Computers can overheat due to excessive dust and other materials stuck in the vents or fan. To fix this, use a compressed air duster to carefully blow the dust off the vents and fan.
Inadequate Amount of Thermal Paste
Your computer may not have adequate transfer of heat between the heat sink and processor. This is usually caused by a lack of thermal paste or by air in between the two components. To fix this, completely clean off any old thermal paste, then apply a bead of new thermal paste directly in the center of the processor. Gently push the heat sink back in place and tighten screws to lock down the heat sink.
