My friends Sony Vaio laptop will not boot so he asked if I could help...
It's A Sony VAIO AR41S
He says that when he presses the power button and tries to start it up it just makes 2 small beeps followed by one long beep, then nothing happens. He took it to PC World here in the UK. They said that it was a motherboard problem and would cost more than £500 to repair. They also said they ran data recovery on his hard drive but the data was corrupted and hence lost. They also said they plugged it into an external display to test it and nothing came up.
This sounded a bit dubious to me.
Any way just wondered if there was anything he could do? Is anyone familiar with this issue? I saw this ad on ebay which looked like they might be able to help...
Any help much appreciated.
