Sony PCG - Comes and goes

By Raulatello ·
My laptop periodically decides when it will turn on. Once on, it runs great. Power chord is delivering voltage as required. What would cause this weird behaviour?

I own older vaio pcg-610 had same problem, check battery, not sure which pcg you have but mine will not start unless battery has 10% charge, even with power cord, to notebook. when you first plug it in to wall socket see if battery light is blinking wait few minutes then hold down power button few seconds, if this works look into buying new battery.
P.S. Check Display properites>screensaver tab>power button>opens power options properites>power meter tab are you less than 10% and is battery charging? I never used my battery but after time I could not use it for more than the time it takes this old slow machine to boot then would auto shut down.
I'm assuming winxp os.
