Hello,

My teenage son accidentially stepped on my Sony Vaio Laptop. It will not power up, turn on, no processer sounds or anything.

The screen is not cracked. Just will not power up.

Any suggestions? Do I need to replace a part? Thanks so much in advance for any help you can provide.

Sincerely,
Melissa :)

That's hard to figure out. Do you know which part he stepped on? It doesn't even turn on when it's not plugged in? Try taking the battery out completely and putting it back in.

You need to discipline your son for sure. And have him pay for a new laptop for you! ;)

If it was on a soft surface (deep pile rug, bed, pillow, etc) and the AC adapter was plugged in at the time, with those symptoms, the first thing I'd check would be determine if the laptop's power socket and/or the AC adapter's plug was damaged.

There are scenarios that wouldn't require a soft surface to cause relative flexing between the laptop case and the AC adapter plug, but I think such a failure would be more likely on a soft surface. For example, if the case partially lifted on one edge when it was stepped on, or he stepped on the adapter plug itself.
