Hello,

Recently, my charger stopped working on my sony vaio so I purchased a generic charger that has different voltages. I accidentally switched it to the 24 volts and my laptop suddedly shut off and wouldn't turn back on or recongize that it was charging.

I bought a new battery thinking that was the problem only to find out the same problem. is there a way to recover a battery due to high voltage?

Thanks in advance.

If the battery was bad due to over voltage, it should have broke open and expanded/swelled, you would have known it was a bad battery without a doubt.

What has likely happened is that you blew out a transistor (or something) on the mother board. This may or may not be fixable. Sounds like you will have to take it to a repair shop and they will most likely want to replace the mother board. I would assume that someone out there could repair the board, but most pc repair places would replace parts rather then have the know how to repair something like that.

But, get a second opinion.
