It could be the main fuse or it could be a fracture at the DC jack.  The
main fuse is relatively easy to find since it is typically very near the
DC jack.  If you post a picture of the board, readers can comment.  The
blown fuse can be bypassed with a fast acting picofuse soldered across
the terminals.  A cracked board will likely have to be replaced unless
you can identify where the flaws are and a method for restoring
connectivity.  There is a poster on the unofficial Sony Vaio forum
(smbios, I think) that has a good reputation for Vaio board repairs.
